be prepared to be underwhelmed when you see the ex800st packaging
... and this is standard with most hardware made exclusively by Sony Music-Communications of Japan

is your 7550 now relegated to beater status?
im hoping mine will at least last 5 years with super great care like I did with the UE Triple fi 10
Well, 7550 was purchased for beater status, as I was not willing to use my UERM for outdoor use. 7550 received lots of love from me, and they still do. I would freak out if they did break. I began using them as outdoor/main portable rig(in fact, they get more use than my UERM!). They are not relegated. They receive proper care and love.
Just an quick update, but I sold off H-200 and kept the H-200. There's a good reason behind that.
1. MDR7550 is much more comfy.
2. They isolate less.
3. They have better bass(generally good for travel/workout phones)
4. Built better.
Just use the small tips. My friend has small ear canals and finds the small tips comfortable.
