Hybrid sillicon tip design
EX driver for great sound
Easy to use cord winder prevents tangling
Sony’s come out with a new series of EX earbuds-the EX33/35/36V-all have 9mm EX drivers and can be found for under $45.
In Australia Sony offers only the EX33 & EX35LP.
I purchased and am reviewing the latter.
The design of these are quite similar to the EX32LP-with a straight earpiece and a stem part at the back.
What makes these nice is the supplied tips are made using a new technique by Sony called “hybrid sillicon”-basically this refers to the outer part of the tips being made from softer sillicon, while the inner part is hard sillicon-enhancing the in-ear seal and wearing comfort.
The tip’s inner parts are color-coded-orange,green and light blue, which makes for easy selection.
Sizes supplied are:S,M,L with another size, SS being available as a separate purchase (smaller than S size).
I chose to use the L size.
I found the isolation to be very good-something Sony’s EX series does well and it sounds quite nice for my tastes.
Using these with a iPod gives great bass, with a Sony NW-S705F, it proved to sound excellent with the EX35LP’s.
It has got a good level of bass-which I like too.
Finally, there’s a handy plastic piece which you can wind the cord around to prevent tangling.
