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...but the overall music. the heavy thing is going to smash into your ears just like that!!! BAM! pushing air and sound into your ears.
for me, its bad.
Summary: I really like these IEMs. The casing is almost indestructible, they have detachable cables, and the sound is great and very clear for dynamic drivers.
The casing is made from Zirconium. They're advertised as being related to diamond, which isn't true and a little too much marketing speak, they are indeed very very hard.
The sound is a little bit V-shaped with too much emphasis on the bass & treble.
Cons: Little too much bass & treble, expensive now
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. The detachable cables with the non-proprietary connectors are a big bonus too. The solid build quality doesn't stop with the shells.
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 watching Netflix. Hey, I'm just being real.
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. The finish changes color from a gunmetal grayish color, to a bluegreenish hue in bright light.
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)
