Unrivaled quality, with a unique sound signature.

Pronounced but unexagerrated bass response

Good sound but not worth [$]

 

I have many Sony earphones including the EX700. These headphones do sound very good but they are not worth [$]. Buy the EX700 cheap while you can. These may be worth $300. I am pretty sure that is what they will cost in a month or 2.

Good Bass

Poor Value

Improved fidelity when compared to Sony's previous flaship the MDR-EX700

Price, cord is unchanged
