I have bought these headphones several times - why , because for one reason or another they get lost on holiday or other travels. I have kept repurchasing these though for a reason.
I used to only use the 'free' headphones that come with ipods , MD players - in ear ones looked a little too intrusive. I always found though on public transport or planes that background noide drowned out my music.
These headphones really cure this problem by sealing your ear and insulating outside noises really well. Bass is strong and although I'm no audiophile , the sound they produce is less 'muddy' than other cheaper headphones I have tried. The cord length is great, meaning I can cycle or run with my iphone in any pocket without an earbud yanking off (which has happened with other headphones).
The EX75 comes with 3 different ear adaptors ?...basically the bit that actually goes in your ear canal - I found the largest the best, not because im the BFG - but because the smaller ones 'leak' noise a little. I like them having to be shoved in (ahem)...
All in all - great bass - good quality sound.
I purchased these headphones for £25 and thought that was exceptional value. The sound quality you get from these heaphones at such a low price really is fantastic. Most headphones that produce this quality of sound cost £60 and upwards, which is obviously a lot of cash to be paying for a lot of headphones. These headphones make high quality sound affordable and I can guarantee you will notice the difference in sound quality to a pair of £9.99 headphones.
These headphones can product very sharp qualities of music and also have a fantastic range of 5Hz-23kHz. To put that in perspective most headphones of this price have a range of bout 18Hz-23kHz. This extra range is very handy when it comes to listening to music with deep bass as it allows you to hear everything whereas with a par of headphones with a lower range you cant hear the deep bass and it really does affect the quality of sound. They also produce a significant amount of volume so there is no problem with them being too quiet.
A lot of people are wary of in-ear headphones as they feel they may be uncomfortable. Well I can tell you these do not cause any discomfort. They come with three different ear bud sizes and one of them is most certainly going to feel comfortable for you, I personally find any size comfortable. The only issue is if you have them in for over an hour they do start to feel a bit uncomfortable, however I feel its only fair to say this is the case with nearly all headphones that go directly into the ear.
I have had mine for around 5 months now with no breakdown in the quality of sound or any other reliability issues. However I would expect after about 1-2 years depending on how frequently and how much strain you put them under (E.G listening to very loud music very often would be a lot of strain), that there would be a decline in the quality of sound and you may need to replace them, but this is the case again with most headphones and thankfully you are paying a very far and low price for these in the first place. Also in terms of size the earbuds are quite small which is good because they look good when you are listening to them and means they take up less space in your pocket.
Overall I cannot recommend these to you enough, if you compare the technical specifications with other headphones this price you won't find anything that comes close to matching up. If you aren't into technical details then just please take my word, you will get top quality sound from these headphones for fantastic value and also get a stylish looking headphone from a stylish brand.
After buying my Sony Ericcson W350i, I decided i would better and more comfortable headphones than the standard one that came in the phone box. So days after getting my phone at christmas i went into orange and purchased it. As soon as i got onto the bus i plugged them in and was totally thrilled at the comfort, the buds cushioned my ears and gave me amazing audio output. It went in with ease as it was built for the phone, most Sony Ericcsons have the same port and it fit in so snug. I could feel relaxed and enjoy the trip without any throbbing or discomforts, these were a godsend.
I had heard about them before as many of my friends had Sony Ericcsons and their phone came with these types of headphones. I wished that I didnt have to fork out £12 on something that was supposed to come with Ericccsons standard, for comfort. But besides that, it was worth it. I was on the computer downloading tunes, sending them by bluetooth and then would find times of the day where I could relax and listen to some RnB.
If someone was to call my phone whilst I was listening to music, then it would stop and begin the ringtone which should be a default with all music phones. There is no handsfree kit included here, as it is just headphones. The lead was long like you would expect it to be allowing free movement.
The only fault I could find with the design is that if the end of the lead is angled by contact then it kind of bends the reciever. what i mean is that you will have to bend the end to get the sound quality back.
The sound quality is pretty good and is very comfortable.
Overall i give it (5)***** out of (5)***** stars
As I am back modelling I find myself doing a hell of a lot of travelling and most of it by train, so I also find myself listening to a lot of music either on my IPod or through my laptop but of course others on the train do not want to hear it so I need good earphones.
I say good earphones because the IPod ones are NOT good, I purchased the Sony MDR-EX75SL earphones on the recommendation of a friend and my friend was spot on these are great earphones and very comfortable to use.
These are the type of earphones that fit right inside the ear, this does two things in the main, it allows you to block out outside noise and it allows the input from your earphones to go right into your ear and not spill out so others can hear it and be annoyed by it.
These come in white as well as black, I bought the white ones because I thought they looked much better, they come with three different sized silicone ear buds so you will definitely find a size that fits comfortably and will not fall out.
Another thing I find with these earphones that I have not found with any others is that I do not lose the bass sound when listening to music, these generate good bass and make music sound exactly how it should. Every note is crystal clear through these and they handle quite high volume although because they are in ear the volume does not need to be as high as you might have it with other earphones.
The cables on these feel very strong and I doubt you would break them easily even if you were to catch them on something or the likes. These also come with a very handy extension cable which I find very useful when I use them at home with my PC. For me these are a quality product and worth every penny of the £28 I spent on them and I would be more than happy to recommend them to someone just as they were recommended to me!
