Summary: I just can't imagine anyone, no matter what music he/she enjoys, finding these to be a pleasant listen. FLAT, cardboard sound to my ears. Who likes flat sound? The fit is not good, as they are unbalanced and want to topple out of the ear.
Summary: Hello all head-fiers out there reading or seeing my review. You may ask who is this random guy writing a review? Here I am doing so anyways since this headphone isnt reviewed often and only has one review. I come from a family of sound engineers that have taught me in depth of what sound is supposed to sound really and all that basic and advanced stuff on sound. My mom and her brother are both sound engineers.
Summary: Overall, I find these headphones eh for it's price. Comparing them to the Image S2m, they sound more expansive. On depth however, the S2m sound more full at equal volumes without an amp or EQ. The R1s lack clarity and quality when compared to the S2ms, but at higher volumes, can make up for their loss of depth, and with extra spacious sound, immediately become more deep. Bass is strong, sometimes even distorting the music, and parts of the mids sound recessed.
Pros: Soundstage/positioning, decent for instrumental music with a punch, deep and strong bass
Cons: Distorting, too much bass, sibilant, recessed mids, below average for rock and melody of different genres of music
Summary: In four words 'Bang for the buck' In two words 'Must buy' After reading hundreds of reviews, threads and users posts this was my first choice and what a choice No need to try more headphones and spent more money Basses are awesome, mids are good and highs are very good.
Summary: For any1 who really enjoys their music to its fullest without breaking the bank the are a must buy. I spent ages reading reviews for all sorts of earphones and these were what I finally decided on. And my god am I happy with my choice. Although if ur using a nasty ipod or iphone no matter how much you spend they'll all sound crap with there presets. With a custom eq u really can get these earphones to their fullest potential.
