    Default Earphones!

    Hi to all.

    I'm planning to get either of the two thus I need your feedback, particularly from existing users.

    1. Sony Fontopia® Headphones MDR-EX71SL

    2. Sennheiser MX 500

    Apparently the former is more dear, retailing at about S$80 as compared to the latter at about $35. I just need to know whether it is worth to pay double of the cheaper option.

    Btw, which are the good retailers that I should patronise? I don't wanna kena rip off!

    TIA!

    currently using Sony Fontopia® Headphones MDR-EX70SL with my iPod. Fits nicely into my ears using the medium ear buds.

    The in ear design will help to reduce noise too



    never try mx 500, no comment on that

    the Sony EX70 is an excellent pair of earphones, especially for those peeps who's ears don't seem to fit normal earphones very well, like me! they keep coming lose and dropping off, i've got defective ear design...

    anyhow, it's really good, but it will make you deaf to the rest of the world, so you many want to look out for that.

    the cheapest i've seen for this (EX70, not 71, what's the difference anyhow?) is $65 at 2nd floor SLT, the shop right next to the escalator. cheaper than any SLS shop back then.

    I just bought the EX-71 a few months ago. Many people liked the earphone, so I went ahead to buy a pair (white Japanese version) from V8 at Bugis Junction. The sound is not bad, but not as terrific as I expected (after reading so many praises about the Sony). One tip to get good results from the earphone - make sure the bud fits nicely into the ear! Initially I pushed the bud into my ear, after reading that a loose fit will result in teribble sounds with little bass. I found the result not so good... then a week later I realiszed pushing too deep in also result in the bass "escaping"! So just push in to fit can already... dun try too hard!

    What really annoys me is the sound made when the cables rub against each other... very irritating and loud when it travels straight into your ear! What no doubt that you'll get a lot of attention wearing the special design of the EX-71... especially the white one!

    Oh... get a iPod to go with it. Damn cool...

    Does the Sony comes with a casing which can allow me to put it away neatly?

    Thanks for the feedback! I've made up my mind on the Sony one; all I need now is the time to go down to SLS to get it ...
