My advice is to avoid the Sony EX, especialy for gym use. Sound quality is great, ear piece fit is perfect, however the insulation on my pair is disintegrating rapidly after just 3 months of use in the gym. I've owned them for 5 months prior with no problems until I started taking them to the gym, where either sweat or body heat causes the chord insulation to break down. I'm now checking the Shure line as an alternative, but don't have an opinion yet on that brand.
I wanted to buy some new headphones for my mp3 player. I've narrowed it down to two:
The Shure e2c or the Sony EX series.
The thing is, I've heard that the wire insulation on the Sony EX series is horrible and that it peels off. Is this a common problem or just bcs they don't care for the headphones properly?
So...any reccommendations between the two?
