Default Need a suggestion for earphones of Sony Walkman E series

I have Sony Walkman NWZ E354, my original earphones weren't broken, now I buy a new one, but dont know choose which one. I like dance and electronic music (bass mainly), so what should I buy? I saw Sony- Fontopia MDR-E828LP Stereo Earphone, is it good?

Welcome to ABi

I would edit this information http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=59847 into your first post. What you give isn't enough to make a good recommendation.

I have heard the headphones you mention and they weren't any better than stock earbuds to my ears. I wouldn't want to try to say exactly what they sounded like, it was too long ago. Not bad for earbuds is all I really remember.

I can't be 100% sure of the model number (as I've had them for a few years now and the number isn't printed anywhere on them), but I believe those are the ones I have. I like the sound a lot. Not too overbearing on either the bass, mids, or treble. Nicely balanced, in other words. I just can't wear them for a long time without them physically hurting my ears; they're just a tad too bit for my particular ear holes.

The wind-up case is extrememely convenient and keeps them protected and the cord from tangling. I wish more earphones had this type of case.

The Sony E828 earbuds has plenty of bass, however it also has audible distortion at higher volumes. At lower to middle volumes distortion isn't audible, and the earphones are quite usable. The bass and treble are boosted while the midrange is a bit recessed. The E828 is very efficient at 108db/mw 16 ohms. For under $10 this earphone is quite decent, although it lacks the detail of good more expensive earphones like the Sennheiser MX580. Another good choice for open earbuds under $10 is the JVC HA-EB75 earbuds with earhooks. The HA-EB75 imo has a better midrange but not as much bass as the E828. The HA-EB75 won't fall out of your ears though while very active. If you are willing to consider an IEM(in the ear isolating earphone) the JVC HA-FX40 or Panasonic RP-HJE355 at around $15-20 sound so much better than the E828. The HA-FX40 has even more detail than the HJE355, however the HA-FX40 has too much treble. IEMs aren't suitable though when you need to hear your surroundings.

Did you decide to buy the E828 or not? For under $10 it isn't bad, however there are much better choices if you are willing to spend more. I guess you could get the E828, then if you don't like it you could get something better. I say the E828 is very usable at lower volumes for casual use, but for more critical listening something better is called for.

I bought it. The E828 is very usable at lower volumes, I didn't listen to music so loud. For Sony Walkman volume, 12/23 is my level
