Sony MDR-EX71
- How long have you use it?
for about 2 years (this is my 2nd pair, the new models seem even more solid than my first pair)

- What is so special that you like most and least?
It's Sony is Japanese, and as the Japanese brands in general, they keep improving little by little equipment, my first pair (which I was quite happy) I let go after 6 months of intensive use, the cable was in my view responsible for ca, flexible and extensible, the drivers seemed to float in, probably not the best protection. Now it's cables "classic" I would say, with a thick enough insulation and secured to the driver. ca short happens from time to time to drive on the cable with my rolling chair, and for over a year since I have this pair, it does not seem tired.

Another plus: insulation, for those who do not know, this headset very well isolated from the noise, I use the pc notament to have my sound and no noise in the ears ventilos.

one more thing: the 3 sizes of ear tips to accommodate different sizes of ears. Personal I use the smaller, they are nickel to my ears. do not hesitate to test 3.

against the cable is quite short if used without the extension, and a little long with the extension. a shorter extension might have been more appropriate, it said it can not use a remote Raju 1m cable. and the extension can still be used for a LAN, to connect headphones to the PC sound card, if it does not bring in speakers with headphones port on it.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I tested a lot of headphones, but it is the only in-ear that I tried. Having said that I read everywhere that the EX51 is well below low level (more drooling), for the fans.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
very good, € 36 in Alifax is an excellent price for such quality sound.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
yes, a good headphone for isolation of ambient noise, used in the train (rather than large closed headphones look 80)
pc as music player, it's a very good deal! I have no personal hi-fi so I can not comment on this type of use.

I've had two hard mois.Si quality over time is a good product. A bit expensive, but also innovative. The emphasis is on sound quality. It's not the quality "pro" (light color to make the sound better notament serious, but I do not know if headphones player "pro", ca does exist :-). Anyway, that's what I thought best. For a fairly neutral answer, you have to play the equalizer in your portable music player.
The highs are clear, but we can not blame the music "breathe" no bottom.
The main innovation of these headphones: the tips isolate the listener from ambient noise: you can listen at a lower level for a better rendering. Dangerous driving and cycling, but good for jogging in the dirt: tip-top.

You have to be careful with corny as some raportent the cable is fragile. I already had to deal with one of the fittings had been the magic trunk. I found it, but I was hot, because without this little gadget, the headphone does not use any more.

In the same style of earphones, I would like to try the Etymotic ER6 ($ 139) and Shure's E4C ($ 299) that use the same principle of isolating the listener to a higher budget bcp. So the wise (sic) ... In the meantime and for the moment (2 months, as I recall), I would do this choice.

Updated a few months later:
I do not rviens sound quality. Parcontre, the son is a poor quality. They literally self-destruct. After a few weeks, I saw the son of copper from all sides. Surprisingly: still no loose connection. I use this headset more than me, suddenly, at once patched tape. But this problem is known to quasiement all the owners of this model. I fell back on a JVC model of very good sound quality (not match the Sony), but more robust and cheaper.

Last thing: do not be tempted by the purchase price too good these headphones on eBay all deals trrrrès (vendors for most Chinese) are sales of counterfeits. I speak knowingly.

I use it for 2 months.

For those 10 boomer low (1Hz to 5Hz) in their car, this headphone is not for you. Let me explain, I tested the bass to plug koss: oulala, a subwoofer on the head, the medium? lost, the treble? Oh y'en?.

The Sony shines with dynamic bass response and low and medium frequencies. The advantage of these headphones and it is therefore intra atrial gille deeply in the ear (do not worry), and provide insulation from the outside. Sony headphones are very good noise level, the highs are crystal clear, deep bass and this (not too much as well) the lower midrange as well.

Only default: the high mids (female voice, guitar treble etc) sounds a bit dull, you can hear them but it sounds a bit stale.

Small positive note the different foams are of good quality and therefore allows a "sliding" easily in the ear without hurting after 30 minutes as the bass plug.

Be careful as you buy is kind of product, test it before! Certain types of ears are not suitable notice to the intra (although one must get used to it after a while) but do not négiger comfort as to be a determining factor apreciate music Decout after 1 hour.

the price / quality ratio is good.

I will gladly do it again later choice but if I sub, I will take or Shure E3C E4C.

Sony MDR-EX71
I have these headphones for 2 years or

This headset actually isolates us from outside noise. Also, no one can hear what we hear. The embous are very comfortable. Certainly when you have never tried this type of headphone earlier stages, it's weird at first. But after an hour, I got used to. And suddenly you can keep it for hours, we do not even feel. With this headset, I could hear lots of sounds that I had not heard the CD. The accuracy of the sound is remarkable, and the sound is rich in bass (I love the feeling ^ ^)

The value for money is pretty good, I bought about 40 € chez Boulanger.

Yes I would do without hesitation that choice;)
