Excerpt: I've tried to like these..I really have. But after six months of trying different ear tips ...I just can't. On ANY type of music...I can swith between these and my V-moda's , which were half the price..and the 'modas win every time. The hf5's always sound like the bass is at a minus 5. hence..the 5?
Excerpt: ...if you sit still and don't move a muscle. The microphony created by your own footfalls, the wire bouncing against your body or wind blowing on the wires or your ears is quite annoying and accounts for most of the bass frequencies you will hear.

Summary: Headphones, & in particular, earphones are a tricky purchase. It is difficult to try before you buy & you are never quite sure what you are going to end up with, over priced tosh or a decent value product.
Summary: Für meine Ohren ein enttäuschender Klang - und ich nutze eigene Aufnahmen zum Testen, weiss also, wie es klingen soll. Nicht sonderlich detailliert, zu Mittenbetont, mit einer Überpräsenz in den Höhen, nasal, wie, so denke ich, bei allen In-Ears.
