When a mega electronics maker like Samsung decides to create a top-of-the-line mobile phone stereo headset, I take notice. Not only are the $129.99 Samsung Refined Sound EHS71 earphones pretty to look at, but they also came with a promise of outstanding audio quality and sound isolation. Unfortunately, though, Sammy promised a little too much. And in today's crowded field of smartphone headphones filled with tough competition from audio pros like Klipsch and Grado, talk is cheap and sound performance is king. Whether building cutting-edge HDTVs or expanding its Galaxy line of smartphones, Samsung takes product design seriously. So it's no surprise that the Refined Sound EHS71 model reflects the company's eye for quality aesthetics. Compact and lightweight, the EHS71 consists of two cylindrical earbuds carved from what Samsung calls "aircraft" aluminum. I especially appreciate the textured, crosshatched stripe that runs around the middle of each silver-hued earbud. It provides a better grip, which is important on earphones this small.

Recently, Sony and Samsung have each launched balanced armature earphone lines—an area of consumer audio that is new for both companies. The Sony line offers a much broader range in terms of both price and number of products, with some disappointments like the overpriced XBA-NC85D ($499.99, 3 stars) and some stars, like the excellent XBA-S65 ($89.99, 4 stars). The EHS71 represents the top of Samsung's EHS lineup. At $129.99 (direct), the earphones offer clean bass response that isn't overly boosted and doesn't distort at top volume. The EHS71 can sound overly bright at times, however, and iPhone users will be disappointed by the incompatible phone controls. Design The minimal, lightweight design of the Samsung EHS71 makes for a comfortable fit, and the included silicon eartips offer a secure seal—important for audio performance. The earpieces were designed using aircraft-grade aluminum, and they have a simple, sleek metallic look to them. A thin cable connects to both earpieces, with the phone controls and mic compartment located on the right ear's cable.
