Summary: Got these as a present from my wife over 2 years ago and STILL going strong. Sound is as good as ever and they are very robust. Replaced 2 sets of Shures, both of which lasted less than 2 years.
Summary: I've always been a slight headphone-whore, changing brand whenever I broke/lost a pair, working my way through most of the Ultimate Ears and Shure, brands amongst many others. These are the only pair I've bought twice. They have a really great 'neutral' sound - which sounds like faint-praise, but means music just sounds like it's supposed to.
Summary: Best earphones ever in my collection! Superb sound, easy handling, and superb comfort. I find myself listening to some lectures for hours and hours, even more than 3 or 4. At the end I don't have any pain in my ears, and I don't feel them all through the sessions. They just fit in and do their job. Priceless.
Summary: Delivery and packaging was fine. Have used these now for a while and they seem to get better the more I use them. Use them in the gym, office, travelling and in the house. Very comfortable to wear. Quality is outstanding. Bass is lovely, the mids and highs are all there... fantastic sound... very much a 5 star product.
Summary: Usually I end up taking any kind of headset off after a short while just because they are uncomfortable. These stay on for my whole session down at the gym. Soundwise they are great although they do need the bass filter to make the music have any life,even though I would say I am not a fan of bass orientated music. Once you have the correct filter in there is plenty of detail and overall these are the best phones I have bought and I am really enjoying them.
Summary: I've been listening to music for many many years and have tried a lot of headphones in this time. The Phonak PFE is one of the most natural sounding in-ear headphones I've heard. Strings, female vocals and acoustic instrumentes sound superb and the bass is incredibly well defined. The build quality is superb. Cabling is some of the best I have seen with an earphone and the earphone body is robust (but lightweight).
Summary: I've always had problems getting earphones to stay in my ears... until now! After reading the 5 star review of the Phonak Audeo PFE 012 in Stuff magazine I did some more research and ended up buying the higher end PFE 122. The Phonak PFE 122's sound is very clear, with warm and they have well defined bass response (not over-cooked like Bose in-ears).
Summary: Excellent sound which seems to be balanced well for listening to classical and jazz, they're not tiring to listen to. The cables feel substantial and unlikely to break. They come with a little pouch that's useful for also holding my iphone usb cable. I've since had to buy more buds which are readily available but expensive.
Excerpt: Это мои первые и единственные наушники по технологии сбалансированного якоря. Не знаю, может быть якори все такие классные, и можно купить подешевле. А может быть, это действительно выдающийся экземпляр, и он стоит своих денег. Для сравнения у меня были динамические наушники Denon AH-C710, которые, может быть, звучат "сексуальнее", но у Phonak можно сконцентрироваться на каждом инструменте и услышать его, а у Denon картина все же немного сливается.
Pros: Превосходный звук. Чрезвычайно отчетливый бас, приятная середина и адекватные высокие частоты. Очень удобный провод – из какого-то хитрого материала, совершенно не запутывается. Удобная посадка в ушах. Правда правильного "залипания" в ухе удалось добиться, только если провод вести над ухом. Интересная концепция сменных фильтров с разной АЧХ на выходе. В комплекте идут черные и серые фильтры, но существуют еще зеленые для "Perfect Bass", хотя повторюсь, басс и так прек...
Cons: Сменные фильтры периодически "забиваются", как выразились в сервис-центре, поэтому фильтры нужно менять. Из коробки их 8, но за 2 года я потратил почти все, сейчас буду докупать еще комплект.
