Pros: amazing soundstage, homogeneity

Cons: nothing to complain

To make it short:

Get one if you find them, the EX1000 are Sonys best inears, maybe for a longer time.

Use a fitting player that can handle the impedance, and you get breathtaking results.

One of the very best soundstages I ever heard, no BA comes close to it.

 

Frequency response ist good, highs can be sometimes 'special', but it is not a big deal. IMHO it's more problematic if the player is sensible to the slight impedance peak around 5 kHz. Try it out. Also try different eartips ... but you know, for sure.

 

Some people say, the EX1000 is close to $ 1k customized BAs, and so I do!

It's a real bargain now, and a shame, that Sony discontinued it.

Agree! One of the absolute best IEM's out there, and having personally owned the XBA-4, the EX1000 still remains Sony's best in-ear offering.
