Good sound, but too fragile headphones!

Sony MDR-EX50LPB.AE for intra-ear MP3 / MP4 Black (Electronics)

Customer Review

Being a regular SONY headphones and especially a major consumer of music in everyday life, I had been conquered by the previous model SONY MDR-EX35. I had also bought several and I was fully satisfied with the sound quality of this product, but especially for its durability and strength over time (something very rare for small headphones).

I recently had to fall back to this new SONY, not finding the old market.
But there, at first surprise unpacking, headphone wires seemed to me much more flexible than the old model (risk of wire to untangle problems frequently). Headphones meanwhile are very good cosmetically, and the sound is similar to the old model. This new model seems more comfortable in the ear, but the design of the earpiece and wire that connects the really inadequate as this part is fragile. I had read reviews about it, but I do not think it was that bad.

Result: the new model of headphones was not working after 2 days. The wire connection to the headphones is far too fragile. I will fall back on another model. I recommend this product.

More than this:
- Aesthetics
- Comfortable ear
- Correct Sound Quality

Under this product:
- Fragility
- Wire too soft and tangle easily
