    I got them this week from Japan and they are amazing :clap: . I prefer the sound much better than the 71s. The strange thing is why they don't bring them in Europe at all.....

    I was lucky enough to find a pair 2nd hand on Amazon for 15 quid.
    They had only been used once and came in the original box with the spare buds and the extention cord.
    Bargain!!
    The Sony centre in Cardiff said that they are due into their shop any time now.

    Whats the build quality like? Not impressed with thin wires of Sony EX71's. Hope they don't suffer driver failure like my EX71's. This is a common problem if you google it, after six months using them. Hope Sony did a better job with EX81's.

    well said LFC...... i was gonna buy sonys as a matter of course untill i read all the feedback about drivers blowin after a few months on many of the models.

    i bought shures instead .. if the ex81s are more robust than the 71s ill buy a pair of those too.

    I have Panasonic RPHJE50, Sharp MD33, and soon to have Shure E2c. All canal phones, all better sounding than Sony EX71's (my opinion - but you have to admit bass is too pronounced on EX71's), and all better build quality. Of course the EX71's offered me the best fit but....
