Whatever you do, don't get the EX70/71. I assume the EX51 would be just as bad or worse. I've read the reviews at Audiocubes too, but they're not to be trusted. The EX71 were the worst headphones I've bought. They were extremely disappointing. You will hear a lot of bass, and it's the bad kind of bass. Also, the highs and mids are extremely bad. Other than its build quality and the little isolation that it gives you, it's a really bad pair of "cans" in terms of sound quality. It does seem like most people here really don't like the EX70/71.
If you want to buy them anyway, get them used from a fellow head-fier, but don't be surprised that you'll just be letting them collect dust after you've tried them a few times.
as posted in anothe thread, i find that the ex71 have quite good treble and bass when worn with the right sized gasket. but i must agree that the mid-range is not very strong.
