Sony MDR-EX90LP Stereo Earphones

50% Positive Reviews
Rated #459 in Universal Fit


Pros: Look, sound, comfort

Cons: Durability

It's sadly discontinued now, and i couldn't really find a Sony alternative at this price and value.


It looks good, the housing is made of strong high quality plastic and metal, sounds good and forgiving, and is comfortable with decent isolation.


Mine doesn't work anymore. To make the J-cable, Sony took 3 separate cables, each different in length and soldered them together. It ripped at the soldered section 4 or 5 times over the 6 years i was using it. I was able to solder it every but the last time. The strain reliefs also broke on both earpieces after a couple of years.


I'm going to try to avoid J-cables and go for Y-cabled IEMs.


Rest in pieces.

Pros: Good looks

Cons: Sound

Good looks with a nice aluminium shell, but very poorly constructed. They fell apart quite literally.

Sound quality was more balanced than most 'buds' but lacked any kind of definition. Muddy sound across the whole range.

Not worth the price.

Only a consumer styling product.
