'Best headphones ever' is a common occurrence in the consumer review sections of tech websites, when the product in question is a pair of Sony headphones. Even their canal phones have received superb recognition and appreciation, and rightfully so. The Walkman is Sony's realm, thus providing good speakers for portable products should be second nature to these guys. I have with me one such new product from the Sony stable, and I'm pretty thrilled as we have not reviewed Sony earphones in a long time. This one is called the MDR-EX35LP.
Design and Features
The impedance is 16 ohms, which is on the lower side, making the earphones apt for low voltage outputs like MP3 players. The rated output for frequency response is 6 Hz - 23000 Hz, which is extremely wide. We will have to run some pure sine tones to check how low it goes. Sensitivity is medium at 100 dB. Judging by this, we should not have a problem with loudness. Plus the fact that these are in-ear, we can expect a decent degree of acoustic noise cancellation. The cord length is 1.2 m which is very sufficient. I feel a minimum length of 1 m is good enough.
