Excerpt: I bought this pair of Sony MDR-EX81LP Bud-Style Stereo Earphones by Sony for 900 pesos. Its model number is MDREX81LP/W. It has a lot of features which are useful for me. For one, my previous earphones easily got torn after one week of use which really frustrated me. However, …
Pros: The phones sound absolutely spectacular! A pair of speakers that sounded this good might not even be possible. They are very comfortable to wear. You might forget they are on after a while. They stay put in my ears for long periods of time also. There is a piece that bends over the back your ear ...
Cons: If the cord gets snagged on something, there should be some sort of release mechanism. As it stands, this mechanism seems to be my own ears. This is not good. A solution would be a small extension cable with detachable 1/8th inch jack and plug, this way the plug would come off before my ears do. ...
Summary: I guess these are 'baby boomer buds' as they seem to be tailored toward those who have middle aged loss of high and low frequency hearing sensitivity. They don't have full freq response like Future Sonics, Shure or some other buds but they don't cost like them either.
Pros: Stays in ear during activity, reasonable sound quality for intended use and price, bud fit is tight and comfortable, easy to put on even with 'over the ear' hook arrangement, tight low end without using special ear canal seals.
Cons: Wires too thin and fragile, the non-adjustable lopsided approach Sony uses with the wire design at the phones end is aggravating, frequency response a bit too attenuated in mids and high mids.
Summary: This is the first product i bought from Newegg that i actually requested RMA. I really like its look tho.
Pros: Style~ This earphone simply looks COOL.
Cons: Well.. I Bought this for multiple purpose. Used it on my mp3 player, notebook computer, and used it on my electronic guitar. The performance just doesn't seem to differ from the ipod ear phone i have. My ipod ear phone actaully sounds louder~ I had to turn the volume way up in order to hear the s...
Summary: The packaging does mention that incorrect fitment can result in poor audio quality. When worn correctly, there is an ear plug effect that muffles any outside noises.
Pros: The audio from these is unbelievable compared to other ear buds. Bass sounds like it's coming from a subwoofer and the highs are very crisp. I was amazed the first time I used these! I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for high-quality sound in such a small package.
Cons: Treble frequencies can be ear-piercing at times. For people who don't like having foreign objects in their ears, these are not for you.
Summary: BE SURE TO FIGURE OUT WHICH EARBUDS WORK FOR YOU! If you don't, sound will sound like an old AM radio, very flat with no bass. MANY people don't take the time to do this. After the 2 minutes of configuration, they work like a champ!
Pros: Great high, mid, and low response; 3-sized ear buds; Oh-So-Comfortable!
Cons: Earbuds can become loose after a year of heavy usage.
