Summary: My much enjoyed Samsung IEM's died on me, and with needing something to listen to my music on and use for my audio/studio class, my parents gave me this.
First Impressions: OUCH. I never had the greatest opinion of Bose headphones, but this was plain unexpected.
Pros: I got them for free, smooth and generally lacking harshness, powerful bass, decent cables
Cons: Midbass hump the size of Mt. Everest, way too thick-sounding and boomy, a bit muddy, poor fit and no seal or isolation with any tips
Summary: Really a horrible set of headphones for the money.
I got these way back as an upgrade from stock ipod headphones and was blown away by the bass. At the time all I wanted was bass and boy did they deliver.
Pros: Smooth...I guess?
Cons: Muddy sloppy woolly bass, no seal, microphonics, tips fall off easy
