Sony Fontopia MDR-EX71SL review: Sony Fontopia MDR-EX71SL

 

Ultracompact and comfortable; included carrying case and extension cord; sounds better than most earbud-style sets.

Some less expensive, nonearbud headphones sound better; not ideal for runners; cord length and behind-the-neck styling may be problematic for some users.

If you're searching for reasonably priced premium earbuds, stop here and take a hard look at the Sony MDR-EX71SL headphones.

Editor's note: We have changed the rating in this review to reflect recent changes in our rating scale. Click here to find out more. Sony's MDR-E827G headphones ($19.99 list) are basic earbud models featuring the company's yellow-and-gray sports...

Lightweight and compact sports design; includes wind-up carrying case; water resistant; can be used with or without included foam earpiece covers; gold-plated miniplug.

Mediocre sound; loose in-ear fit; doesn't include extension cord.

The MDR-E827G earbuds may look sporty, but they didn't fare well during our sweat sessions.

Reviews: Sony MDR-EX75 Stereo Headphones

 

To start with a few points that past Sony earphone users will want to know, MDR-EX75 is, without question, still a member of the EX70 family: sonically, it continues to pump out more bass than flat, neutral earphones, and physically, it's a step...

Sony Fontopia MDR-EX71SL Earbud Headphones

 

Unlike most people, I never hated the standard iPod earbuds. Never, that is, until I got a pair of Sony Fontopias. And you know what? Standard iPod earbuds suck.

If you're looking for a premium pair of in-ear headphones that effectively block out sound and deliver a lot of bass directly into your eardrum, here you go. And for your iPod purists, they also come in white.

Review: Sony MDR-EX71SL Earbuds

 

Thoughts The Sony MDR-EX71SL earbuds offer great value and performance and can be classified as a mid-range product. I would recommend these earbuds for everything but sports activity. They are great for studying in noisy places, blocking out noise on...

good price, good earphones

 

nothing spectacular but they do provide good sound, in ear headphones are still better

Full sound

 

These earphones have very good sound quality. The cord is just long enough to be just right. Both the base and the treble are audible at low volume. They sound well with various equalizer settings and with various types of music. They fit my ears...

Recommended

 

I have owned these before and have (in the interest of diversity) bought many different headphones in a similar price range in between the years of ownership. I haven't encountered much that comes close to being a solid as these.

These are excellent headphones for the price, especially if you have a preference for the type of buds that sit on your ear instead of going into the ear canal. Maximum volume is impressive and conveniently manipulated with the volume control dial on...

Sits on ear a little bit loosely, but I haven't had any problems with them falling out. The cord is also a bit short

Decent earphones

 

I guess these are pretty decent for their price. Nothing too special. I listen to metal mostly in the office so went for these coz I don't like ear-canal earphones as I need to hear what's going on outside as well.

1. Pretty good sound quality ; On par with my Sony Ericsson Bass Reflex earbuds ; Better than the standard iPod earbuds ; 2. Sounds better with the included foam tips ; 3. Inline Volume control ; 4. Carrying Case

1. The 3.5mm jack doesn't connect well. Even slight movement can result in sound loss
