yeah, the EX-71s or something. Mine have worn away a bit and i had to
cover some of the cord in tape to protect it (the bit behind your neck)
but they have EXCELLENT sound. if it wasnt for the cord, i'd reccomend
them to anybody. as it is, dont buy em if you intend to wear them in bed
and fall asleep with them in (they're not uncomfortable, but it trashed
the insulation on the cable)
