Not as good as I expected!

Excerpt: Throughout the years, my ears have been spoiled by listening to nothing but those fancy/hi-end headphones and these just didn't do anything for me. The sound is okay, I'm sure my teenage daughter would love it, but they're not worth the money even when they're on sale. I'm a 100% Apple guy but they're not and shouldn't be famous for making the best headphones!
Summary: These are good-sounding 'phones at a very low price. They seem to have a split personality, however. The are more like ear buds trying to be canalphones. The tips are not well designed for they will fall out even with a little wear time. Just a hint of body warmth and moisture will quickly cause them to slip out. It is impossible to get a good seal without scrubbing the tips and washing out your ears. Even then, it won't last long.
Pros: Dual drivers, low cost, cord length is perfect
Summary: I had high hopes for these headphones. In particular, the idea of two drivers appealed to me. The highs and mids on the headphonee are good. The bass, however, is lacking any form of substance. I recommend that you pass on these.
Summary: I had many expectations of these IEMs but unfortunately besides the great design of them they proved to be just overpriced.
Listening through an iPod shuffle (4G) I had, in the beginning I thought that something wrong was going with it. After using Comply Whoomp the sound was slightly better but the sound was harsh too.
The last try with them came through listening to a new-bought FiiO X3. LOL!!! The harsh sound was audiophiliac now!!!
Pros: Very nice design, pretty good isolation.
Cons: Harsh sound, they were overpriced and gave me poor comfort.
Summary: These are not too bad. I found the bass to be a little weak for my liking and they're not as loud as my previous ones (Sennheisers). Price wise: they're a little expensive for what they are. I think these should come as the default headphones with iPods and iPhones.
