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.

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.

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.
