Summary: Build Quality
The shells made of cubic zirconia is easily the most distinct aspect of the HJE900. It is almost indestructible and according to the literature, can only be scratched by diamond. The shells feel rock solid, has a cool blingy finish, looks and makes you feel good about your buy.
Pros: Tank like build, Detachable cables, Fun & detailed sound signature, Good soundstaging, Decent clarity, Extremely well priced- almost a steal.
Cons: Abysmal fit with bundled tips, Zirconium shells can be heavy, Mesh earwax filters fall out, Springy cable, Slighlty recessed mids, Sparse availability
Summary: These were just the second set of IEMs I bought, the first being Etymotic's 4S about 10 years ago. This was my first purchase intended for portable use (with a Clip +). At first, I was blown away by the low end, not in comparison to a real headphone set up, but to my 4S plugged into a laptop...
Pros: good dynamic range, durable, replaceable cables
Cons: tough fit, hard to find, slightly recessed midrange
Summary: These headphones are very unique, both in construction and sound. They are built of Cubic Zirconium, making them extremely durable, and have detachable cables. A jogger literally ran over mine, on concrete, and they aren't even scratched.
Pros: Sound for price, build quality and durability, detachable cables, sound is very detailed and accurate while being very "fun"
Cons: Sound may be too bombastic or extreme for some. Minor issue with nozzle filters falling off(which can be a plus)
Summary: hey everyone!
i have this long review in my views regarding the pannys.
i got the earphones today...in me.
and they are just as amazing as my ue700!
but in a different way.
they are colored for me.
there's a lot of echo...air moving...and vibrating inside...something heavy... not the bass..
