Default Model of supplied earphones?

Hello All

I am currently in a dilemma. I dont know which MP3 player to get. Either the Sony A820 or the Sony A810. I am most likely to get the Sony A820, may I ask what earphones does the Sony A820 come with ? and are the earphones the same as the Sony A810

Kind Regards

The regular non-noise cancelling earbuds appear to be MDR-EX85s. They have a different plug than the retail MDR-EX85 does (packaged buds = straight plug; retail = angle plug), and they don't come with the little carrying case the retail set does either. They are otherwise seemingly identical, both in form and function.

edit: I can't personally vouge for what comes with the 810 series, but they sure do look the same to me.

the a820 and the a810 (and i think the a720) all have the mdr-ex85s... they are probably the best headphone included with an mp3 player.

the a820 comes with two headphones, the mdr-ex82 (similar to the x85) and bluetooth
headphones. While the a810 only comes with the x82.

Seriously Now...

If you're finding the bass reproduction lacking in the Sony MDR-EX82's inferior to the PX100's, then you're probably not using the proper tips, and therefore not getting a good seal, because IMO the Sony's are much better sounding in every way when used with the Sony DAP unit.

the included EX082 earbuds look like EX85, but they are not, EX85 sound much better.

Are you sure? Are they not exactly the same? I thought the only difference was the shape of the connector...

In any case, the supplied earbuds really sound great. Good bass response and clear definition -- I can really pick out the harmonies!

Also you get a extension cord.

The Sony's are quite nice but also I like to use Philips NC headphones (SBC-HN050)/
