Summary: OK so this headphone has been a trial for me. I bought with high hopes as I was looking for a AH-D7000 equivalent in in an IEM and in this case a $90 IEM, not a small order!
So the question is did it achieve my goal and is it a worthy $90 contender? To answer my first question I can say it's not my D7000 but it does a VERY good job of coming close and is worth trying for anyone looking for an IEM to match up with their D7000.
Pros: Nice detailed midrange and treble, comfortable, iphone features work well
Cons: bass is good but lack impact/punch, cable is a bit unwieldy
Summary: Really good sound - one of the best - BUT as so often with earphones the plastic covering the wires is the wrong material for the flexibility needed and they soon split, exposing the wires with the inevitable result that they fell apart and ended up in the bin. Buy these if you like spending money on things that only last a few weeks.
Had the same headphones previously. Bought the same again ...

Summary: Had the same headphones previously. Bought the same again,as I don't feel they could be bettered. Bought an interim pair for £20 and obviously inferior. The last pair only failed due to the lack of suppleness in the plastic leads. I had used them for a number of years.
Summary: Certainly the best in ear phones I have, with a good frequency range and decent bass cover which is so unusual for in ear headphones. Noise isolation is good both ways. I can listen at a decent volume without other people hearing and it cuts out other peoples noise so I am not disturbed. The only issue ( and one I was already aware of ) is that the volume controls do not work with android players.
Summary: Poor build quality and average sound response make these in-ear headphones a questionable purchase, even at the sale price. I foolishly recommended these to a friend. I had previously bought a pair of Denon and was pleased with the sound quality. Admittedly those headphones costed a lot more but I didn't expect these to feel and sound like a pair of 15 quid headphones. We both purchased our Denon AH-C560R headphones at the same time.
