    I have a pair of sony Ex70 which I prefer over my 71's as the 71's tend to pop at lowish volumes. Problem is I cant use the 70's now due to the wire on the minijack intermittently (spelling?) cutting out the sound. THe sound is now non-existant. SO....

    Is there anyway of replacing the minijack so that I can use them again, seems a shame to bin them.

    I will be looking into buying some e2c's for around £60 - can anyone tell me what the sound quality is like compared to the Sony 70's and 71's?

    From what I have read (dont quote me) -

    70's 106db's
    71's 100db's
    Sure E2c 106db's

    --- Max spl not an issue but I have noticed a lack of grunt between the 70 & 71's which only becomes an issue when pushed.

    You can buy 3.5mm Jack plugs from Maplin or CPC. Replacing them is not very difficult if you have a small soldering iron and sharp side cutters or a small stanley knife to strip the wires. Some solder will help also.

    Cheers, Mylo
