Summary: (Pictures can be found in the thread)
The Ortofon e-Q5 was a very uber popular headphone for a short period time, that is until bigger and better IEM’s took the market by storm, like the Westone 4 and the Earsonics SM3. While I may be a little late to the party when it comes to auditioning these little marvels, this will definitely be sticking in my book for a very, very ling time, as they are one of the most unique and beautifully tuned IEM’s I have ever in my...
Summary: This "moving armature" descendant of the Ortofon e-Q7 makes no sacrifices in terms of quality, despite being introduced at a more affordable price point.

The all-aluminum housing is large and may not fit all ears, but the design is simple and stylish.

Build Quality & Fit,
I have to say these have the best build quality I've had in an IEM. The housing is beautifully crafted out of aluminium with a very nice silver finish. You would have to really work hard the brake or damage them though I can see them getting scratched but not very easily.
