Sony Earbuds MDREX85LP

VGReviewer, REVIEW STREAM
25 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought these Sony earbuds to replace my default iPod ones after they wore down quite quickly. I had been quite disappointed with my iPod earbuds so I decided I would spend a little bit more than the entry level prices on offer.

  • Summary: first of all, i believe, sony wanted to make hybrid earbuds for a better sound my expanding the soundstage, however the strategy failed. the soundstage has improved (the large size helps a lot too), but the isolation lacks and the sounds are distant (they seem tiny as if they're far away). the ex300 and ex500 from sony offered better soundstage and isolation. as for sound, yes, it's balanced. but bass is lacking and doesn't sound warm and full.
  • Pros: looks, durability, design, balanced sound.
  • Cons: poor isolation, poor bass, sounds tiny.

  • Summary: These are great earphones, and similar models are often packaged with Sony's excellent sounding and extremely cheap media players. If you want something cheap to stuff in your bag or keep as spares at work, you can't go far wrong. Just make sure they're real and avoid bulk packaging and too good to be true prices.
  • Pros: Classic Sony sound
  • Cons: Lots of fakes on eBay

Great buy

  • Summary: Headphones work very well. I bought these as a gift for christmas and my boyfriend really likes them. Only thing he said is they have a lot of bass. He listens to audiobooks a lot so that probably has something to do with it.

Comparable to the Sennheisers

Jmz, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I have tried these and the similarly priced Sennheisers, they are both great but these have slightly more bass bias. I couldn't find any more differences in the sound, so I go for these. I would happily buy either again.

As usual: dead after 1 year

tbuyer "tbuyer", Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: The sound is fine if you don't account for the price. Certainly far from top-notch, but acceptable. The big problem is that, as usual with Sony earphones and other products, they died shortly after the first year. Given that Sony products seem to have a built-in expire date that kicks-in after 1 year one would be far better off buying other brands at higher prices. Advice?

Sony MDR-EX85SL

Anoop Giri, Naaptol
15 March 2011
  • Summary: I like the EX85s more than my EX90s because of the lesser weight, the smaller size, and short cord. They are also less conspicuous compared to my EX90s. Most of my everyday players sit at shirt pocket level for which the short remote style cord is great.
