Summary: These IEMs are not jack of all trades, which means they do not perform like their main rivals in the price range (300-500 dollars).

Pros: instrument seperation, Imaging, delicious mids to die for
Summary: Gear used for testing: iPod Video 80gb (5th gen, Rockbox) + Fiio E17
Test tracks: "Survival" by Muse, "Take the Power Back" by Rage Against the Machine, "Finally Free" by Dream Theater, "Hessian Peel" by Opeth, "Sacred Worlds" by Blind Guardian
Sound quality and signature: Not transparent.
Pros: They've managed to capture the Grado headphone sound with these little babies.
Cons: Isolation. The tips are kind of small "than they should be," at least for some people.
Summary: I am lost for words for 2 reasons, 1st: These in ears behave much more like over ears headphones in all the good ways.
2nd: these deserve to be much more popular than they are, I am simply shocked that there is not much more renowned!
Pros: Lots of space, instrument separation, depth, huge sound stage, highs that are not piercing(does not hit the wall of comfortable listening, so small
Cons: None for me, life is way too short to grumble about the price. It is cheaper than competing brands!
Conclusion: Grado has just now replaced the GR10 (and also their GR8) with the new and upgraded GR10e and GR8e. These new models have an even higher level of build precision with new materials that add extension to both the high and low frequency ranges while also reducing distortion.
Pros: Amazing sound, Very comfortable, Easy to insert and remove, Easy to drive
Cons: Expensive, No case, Minimal extras, Color may not please everyone
