Default NWZ-S765 MDR-EX83 earphones

Since getting this player a few months back, I have been using my Sennheiser cx300's, and never opened the included MDR-EX83's. The cx300's are now starting to act up (donkeys years old), so I was after any opinions about the MDR-EX83's, mainly if they're likely to be a country mile away from my cx300's in sound quality. If that is the case, I will leave them sealed and start saving for something else to replace the cx300's.

thanks
joe

If you already have them, why not use them? It's not like they're worth much, could be fakes but I've seen them on ebay for around $12.00 so it's probably not worth leaving them unopened and if you're not happy you could always buy something better. That said, I've never found any included earbuds/earphones to be all that great, a higher spend on headphones or iem's will deliver the most obvious improvement.

Went ahead and tried the Sony ones. Apart from feeling like they wanted to fall out when you move your head (regardless of bud size), the sound quality isn't on par with the CX300's (as expected I guess). Time to decide on some replacements for £20-£30 (money being a bit tight at the minute).

Just an update on this for anyone interested. Finally got around to ordering some replacements. Thought I would try something different so have gone for some SoundMagic PL21's. They should be here by Monday, so fingers crossed they live up to the many good reviews I've read.
