Conclusion: I got these last month to go along with my Q701s. I needed something that wasn't open ear, and that I could travel with. These seem to be tuned a little different than the 701's I got because they are very clean and crisp, but don't seem to be that bass heavy. These have great bass, and are still very clear in the mids and the highs. They were actually very surprising to me when I look at the cost of them. They are great.
Summary: these are ok, i just bought them. They have the same dynamic musical presence as their on-ear, the Q-460. Construction is all plastic, but the cable seems flimsy. same as the Q-460s. I guess these are the compromises concerning the lower lines of the q-series.
Pros: same dynamic,super speedy sound as their Q460s...
Summary: I've worked my way through a lot of in ear headphones over the years and these are by far the best. The sound is brilliant and crisp. The base is great and they feel very sturdy but light, the only issue I have is the cord length, maybe 6 inches longer would be nice. all in all a great set and would highly recommend them!
Summary: Incredibly clear sound for such a cheap and inconspicous pair of headphones. Make sure you use the biggest buds you can get in your ears (tight fit). Not only will you leak less noise, but you'll find the bass response improves enormously compared to loose fit (rubber bits too small). They come with a selection of tips. Ive upgraded to Comply Foam Tips and they now fit and sound even better.
