Another shot of how the insulation on my Sony EX71s is simply disintegrating into a mushy paste. I finally got frustrated with little globs of the stuff falling off and going down my shirt, and pulled most of it off. So now I’m going with the “bare wire” look.
This is the third pair of this model of headphones that has done this to me. It will be my last. I keep wearing them for two reasons. First, when people notice, I tell them all about how Sony ruined a fantastic sounding, supremely comfortable pair of earphones with shoddy materials. And second, I’m still waiting on my “$50 off a pair of Etymotics” coupon from Buzz Bruggeman at Gnomedex (he suffered a computer meltdown, and is still recovering from that).
Buzz, if you’re reading, help a brother out – I’m in dire straits here.
