  • 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
  • Cons: Poor fit, poor isolation, unreliable 'clicker'

  • Summary: What can I say-- they do their job-- which is to protect my other headphones from use when I need to work out.  They do their job well, but let's face it--  they don't sound very good.
  • Pros: You can sweat all over them
  • Cons: They sound pretty awful

  • Summary: these are lean sounding and non fatiguing for that reason. they really lack low end and that is why they are lean. there is no sibilance. very light and comfortable. but i did not like that they are sound isolating at first but that's everyone may find it a good thing. they are really cheap earphones and don't worth 70 euro they are sold for. so ye there is no bass, that is there is bass but very little of it. it won't impress people who like bass in music.
  • Pros: laid back and low fatiguing earphones with remote and mic
  • Cons: no bass, or very little of it, silicone tips are average for comfort

  • Summary: For $79, you can get almost 3 of the regular headphones, which are as good for output quality. Totally not worth the price, especially since you can't buy spare buds.

Meh

  • 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.
