Summary: Phonak Audeo PFE Perfect Bass 022 Earphones with Microphone After I bought these a week ago, I read that Phonak had stopped making earphones. After listening to these earphones my concern changed to feelings of relief at having bought them before they became unavailable. The have a beautifully, smooth, clear open sound. However, I found the sound recessed, and my iPhone 5 could barely drive them to decent levels.
Summary: I'v only had these for a day, but I already love them. I had Tour Beats by Dre before these, I'm not saying ones better than the other for sound quality because id say they're about the same (for bass anyway, these seem slightly clearer for acoustic style music, also Alternative music seems better on the Phonaks). But for the feel and the built quality, the Phonaks are far better, they feel so much better.
Summary: Great sound quality with a decent mic. What more could you ask for!? A really rich and quite wide soundscape with clear highs. I think these are by far the best headphones at their price point. Only downside is expensive accessories.
Summary: I'll keep it short. These headphones sound amazing. The bass is sublime, without the over-the-top muddiness common of lower-range earphones. Mids and highs are likewise crystal clear but not harsh. Combine with the "Rock" EQ on an iPod/iPhone for perfection. Put against the Klipsch Image S4i, there is no comparison. In terms of durability, I have no fears for these. The cable never tangles and feels like it's made of good quality material.
