  • Summary: This review is written by a regular live FOH engineer who's most similar price-range in-ears are Shure SE425's.   I purchased this pair (IE8) of in-ears because they were only AUD$160 from a local eBay seller, brand new w/warranty and I was interested in other sound signatures for listening to recordings. And at the time of writing this review, I have owned them for at least two months with approx 200hrs of listening time on top of burn-in.
  • Pros: Feels solidly built, stock cable is decent. Detachable cable. Will fit into any decently normal ear. Bass knob.
  • Cons: No moulding wire. Stock ear-tips provide poor fit. Bass knob doesn't go to negative.

  • Summary: These earbuds has a warm sound, but with very nice mids, and crisp highs. I heard that lot of people say it has too much bass, but I think they are just enough with the knob turned to the max (maybe it can have even more bass). I found that they sound a slightly similar to the Klipsch Image X10. The cable is the best ive ever saw, they are soft and they have minimal microphonics. The only downside I found is that they don't block out much sound.
  • Pros: Very Very strong bass, mids are good, highs are crisp, comfortable, very strong build, almost no microphonic, replaceable cable
  • Cons: doesn't isolate too much noise, some people may dislike the midbass hump, carrying case is complicated (but cool:)

  • Summary: This is my first top tier IEM. I own it quite a long period of time.   I am very happy with the SQ.... Anyway here is my review after 5 days of usage =)  ( i left it in seller website)   Честно говоря звук сразу после распаковки был ужасен :) Но я знал что динамическим затычкам надо время что бы 'раскрытся'. Так и произошло. Буквально через 5 часов они зазвучали значительно лучше.
  • Pros: Superb SQ for that price
  • Cons: Hard to say

  • Summary: I've been using Sennheiser IE8 for 2 years and its still awesome. sadly I lost it about 2 months ago. The first time I use it, it sounded ordinary but after several days of burning in I finally found the true sound that is so amazing. The sound is detailed, clean instrument separation, strong bass, and an awesome soundstage, and no microphonic...
  • Pros: Superb sound, very detailed, strong bass, an awesome soundstage, no microphonic, good built quality
  • Cons: the sound tuning is useless, earhook, cable

  • Summary: Bass screws work if you have some bass to begin with, ie. not using an ipod. Soundstage is brilliant. Sound is a bit unbalanced, have use aggresive eq with walkman. bass is phenominal.
  • Pros: Lots of tips, fancy travelling case,tons of bass, excellent sound-stage, good build quality, adjustable bass, sounds excellent with metal.
  • Cons: Most tips are useless, bass screw is a bit fragile.

  • Summary: So this is my last IEM upgrade I am planning on doing since I am more of an Over Ear type. However for work I needed a solid IEM. I got these at a great price, and I am plesantly surprised of how much of an upgrade over my CX-870's it is!   I love these IEM's, they are warm, bass is detailed, I can play everything from accoustic/vocals, Jazz, to Alternative rock and they sound crisp clean and warm.   Overall I am very glad I got them for $190 USD instead of full price.
  • Pros: great sound stage, amazing bass, treble, versitile
  • Cons: i have not found any yet

  • Summary: only auditioned this iem for a brief time as I would never pay nearly this much of my hard earned money on an iem. These must have been tuned to a certain type of modern music and for that, whatever it may have been, these probably sound outstanding
  • Pros: workmanship, detail
  • Cons: value
