i bought Sony MDR-EX57SL/B and trust me, though the audio quality is good, the length of the cable and with the extra connector is PITA. it feels heavy on ears as if someone is pulling the earphones out (due to the extra link). DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL RECOMMENDED.

instead order these : http://lynx-india.com/index.php?productID=9604&product_slug=soundmagic-pl-50

i promise you that you will be stunned by the audio quality of these.
another good set is : http://lynx-india.com/index.php?productID=7393&product_slug=head-direct-re2-earphone-

from well known brands check these:

Sennhieser CX300 II Precision

Hey very first thing... thnx a million for replying... i was just beginning to think that this forum is kind of dead....

Taking your advice, i cancel out MDR-EX57SL/B off my list...

The Sennheiser CX300 II Precision has been criticized by a lot many users... So i probably would think of dropping tat tooo....

i'll do a bit of research on the ones u have recommended - Soundmagic and the head direct....

the Klipsch Image S2 fascinates me a lot... i was just expecting some1 would turn up wid some review abt it...

thnxx again...

Im interested in this thread. Hope to see more options.

I have ep-635 which are pretty good except that they are a bit lower on bass than I would have liked and the build quality sucks! Otherwise they are perfect still, Doing pretty well after 2yrs. Never did they crackle in their life time!

Me too looking for replacement of my earphones. Was considering ep-830 and philips SHE 9501.

Are the options mentioned above by XEN & Desibond, really that better than 630's? Their price is more than 630's.

I have just one word for EP630 - "Junk"

Which earphone would u suggest as best replacement for the stock Motorola earphones that i got with my cell phone?
I am looking for something around 1.5K. Can go a lot higher than that, would prefer something below it.

Back to this thread almost after an year!!
Im happy to say that I got Soundmagic PL30 in january.

dese r seriously better than ep-630. Especially the bass, It is much better defined. Rest of the frequencies I feel they are almost same.
One drawback is the knobs on the ear plugs are too fragile.

^^ How do these compare to Soundmagic PL30 and PL50?
And does PL50 also have the build issues of PL30?
