Sony MDR-ED21LP Review

 

4 Stars to Sony MDR-ED21LP

Great sound quality. The most interesting fact about Sony MDR-ED21LP is that Sony has provided a case with it which intends to protect these earphones. Also, it has the apt kind of powerful bass punch

The L- shaped ear plug is not appropriate as it doesn't f it the ear properly. Though the price tag is eye-catching, but the build material of this good looking ear phone is not something to be appreciated ; Price range for this product I s The L-...

If you want to use the best headphones so far with the best features then Sony has something to offer you and it’s his new L- shaped head phone MDR-ED21LP. With its clear-quality sound, it's the rubber cover case which promises to give a comfortable...

My Best Buy

 

Decent sound, but would recommend buying the insurance if you use it everyday as mine lasts approximately 18 months (this is my third pair). Stays in place better than the circular headphones. No problems.

Not up to the mark

 

for base and overall lovers.. would recommend, Philips SHE 9550. I owned them for more than a year. Very confortable, Awesome sound.. and also cheap..

value for money..maybe

1. I was expecting something with good bass. these have good bass, but it pretty flat. More like canned one. There is less groove ; 2. Earphone not very comfortable. They are hard, so difficuly to fit and hurt after some time

Makes my Droid sing

 

Buy two sets as they seem to walk away at times :)

Excellent qualities as an aerial for my Droid (cheap airline ear buds did not function well). Buds are clearly marked for left and right ears and the ergonomics give you a great fit

Sound - 5 stars Comfort - 4 stars

best headphones ive ever owned! the bass is phenomenal, and the mids and high come in clear

can be slightly uncomfortable, but not as bad as the other reviews make it sound

Best for the price

 

I've purchased a few pairs of this style of headphones from WalMart and they're the only ones I'll buy for under $100

If you have small ears, they might irritate the back/bottom of the earlobe. Luckily, I don't

no bass

 

My pair may just be defective, so I gave it a little benefit of doubt: two stars instead of one.

The mid and high range sounds are very clear

There is no bass. I turned up all the bass settings on my mp3 player and there was still no bass. I then plugged in my older headphones (cheap Skullcandy pair) at those settings and the sound was nothing but bass with them
