1. The original pair of top-of-the-line Sony phones, going for three hundred, were called "Premium MDR-EX700SL" headphones; the updated models (primarily to satisfy the desires of the American consumer), are called "Supreme MDR-EX700LP" headphones.
2. If you'r unsure which pair you happen to have (I have both), there are some quick and easy tests. First, is the cosmetic one: The prior, SL model has a shorter cord (4 feet) than the new, LP model (6 feet--no doubt the longest cord of any earphones). 2nd, the prior model has an audio plug that extends straight out from the cable; the newer model has a plug that is attached at a right angle to the end of the cord.
3. Peripherals and accessories. The prior, SL models are being sold in a soft leather pouch that closes with velcro. The new, LP model comes with a hard, leather-covered metal case that jack-knifes open. The SL models come with 1-3 different-sized silicone ear tips; the new, LP model comes with a record 7 different-sized silicone hybrid ear tips.
4. The difference in sonic quality. Unless you have both phones, this will be the most difficult distinction to note. The earlier SL models are full-frequencied, with a rich and warm mid-range and "understated" high and low end. They "wear" extremely well, especially for extended listening to jazz, classical, instrumental music.Read more ›
It is also spectacular in movies like Kingdom of Heaven or Blade Runner.
The isolation from exterior sounds is as good as active noise cancelling systems which modify the sound somewhat, so these are my only earphones for air travel as well.
They are not expensive, since they are probably the last earphones you need to buy.
The headphone comes with 7 silicone sleeves, but I never found that they fit me just right. In my opinion, they're all way too small. On a different note, the EX71 comes with just 3 sleeves, and it's medium pair fits me perfectly. I got the best fit by placing a Shure medium silicone sleeve on the EX700, but that immediately degraded the sound and made everything sound muddy. General comfort is very good; I can easily keep them in my ears for hours on end without much pain.
I would have preferred just a zip pouch over the supplied leather slide-out case if you ask me. That case is just too awkward to wind up, especially with the right-angled plug. If you have the EX700SL version then the case is perfect if you detach half of the headphone cord and keep just the top portion, which is then terminated in a straight plug.
The First time when you listen to these Ear Buds, Off course you will hugely disappointed as you can hear only the Highs and Mids. I burnt them for about 100 hours day and Night and now together with Comply T400 foams I can proudly say I am the only Indian to have the best personal music system in my pockets. The bass is exactly the way it should be essential and not over powering. I have used the Ety's,Denon C751, Turbines etc all either over power the bass which causes it to be muddy or Under powers bass. Both the cases you wont feel like having the buds in your ears for Hours. but the EX700lp will be exactly the way you want it. I have a Sony Ericsson Aino which has an Output more or less the same like a X series Walkman. So I don't want to be too technical here describing the Frequency response and Sensitivity which would not be clear to everyone. In short for MP3 listening these are the ideal ones which are practically unmatched. I accept Sony is not the best in therms of Audio Quality, Shure, Senheiser have better ear buds like SE530 and IE8 and which provide much accurate sound output. But these are not for casual listeners, they are ideal for Technicians.In Short Ex700lp are like a smooth drive on a Highway Where other are like a Roll-a-costa can be enjoyed only for a while.Read more ›
