Thread: ppl who look for good earphone for your mp3 player

    Default ppl who look for good earphone for your mp3 player

    During my trip at japan.
    I notice a new earphone just release from Sony, which is Nude MDR-EX90SL.
    The good about in tokyo, they have setup all the earphones at the store and allow you to test till you happy.

    And this earphone is selling like a hot cake in Tokyo. Many places out of stock.
    I managed to buy this Sony MDR-EX90SL at Hibiya and it also a last piece.

    Good bass, good mid range. 9980 Yen.

    I dont like sonys as they tend to be too bass-heavy. After hearing the Audio Techinica CK-7 ear buds you never want to try another one again. I still waiting to buy mine after my hje-50's died...

    If this Sony EX90 has a good bass emphasis, then it could the one I'm looking for.

    i had a pair of ex81... not bad, good seal and very comfy. sound was a nice step-up from basic earphones. but cable very very flimsy.

    then one day i tried the lower end etymotics ones... and... argh... completely blew the sonys away.

    wonder how these new ones compare. probably still not in the same range, but i wonder if good value for money.

    need less bass and adjust EQ. if earphone no bass, no matter how u push EQ also no use.

    The nude series from sony usually bass more and not so gd at mid.
    but this EX90SL have a overall balance.

    What's the model?

    Currently using a SHURE E3C thought of going to the E5C or try another brand and model which may turn out cheaper and still can give close sound quality.

    Anybody have any recommendations?

    Weston UM1 or UM2. Would get it over the Shures.

    I currently use a B&O A8, which is nice, but will prob get the UM1 or UM2 soon.

    My Panny earplugs are still functioning well. Unless u can teach me an accelerated method of destroying those so I can get an excuse to buy it.

    Hi sykes,

    Get the Shure E5C. You'll never regret it. I'm using one and they sounds awesome.

    Unnatural destruction wun warrant a 'BBB' in my brain. I will curse and swear over it instead.

    How abt a more natural way? Like suddenly 1 side no sound, distortions aplenty, etc, etc.

    That's quite easy... it's all in your head! "My laptop suddenly feels slow ah? Old already! BBB!" "My earphones... don't sound as good anymore.. buy!" At least, that's how it works for me!

    Sennheiser HD215. owned one and never used a earphone ever again. but i've nothing against earphones. sometimes they're just compact and provides the sounds you really need. =)
    I Love You :)

    That's another good piece. Music lover has to try and listen out to decide which suits them well. Each type has its "pros" and "cons"

    Sennheiser HD215 and Grado SR-80 both are good.
