Great Sound

Meing Y., Newegg
29 November 2011
  • Summary: Let the drivers warm up from use for about 30 hours before assessing. Out of the box they start out a bit TOO crisp and tinny but warm up right around 30-35 hours. for 300, I expected a bit more build quality.
  • Pros: The Best audio quality in a pair of IEMs you can buy. The triple driver system delivers crisp quality highs and reverberating lows but the mids are where it really SHINES. The preferred triple flange tip is horribly proficient at it's job. So much so, that I don't wear both sides if I'm biking or...
  • Cons: Not fully modular. The cord system comes in separate sections and, at first, feels solid. But as time goes on it reveals itself to be brittle and prone to splits and a tendency for loose connections resulting in bad static. The wiring around the ear is also bad, it came loose after about 1.5 year...

Amazing Sound

Luis L., Newegg
29 December 2009
  • Summary: Might pick up an extra set for my girlfriend.
  • Pros: I'm no audiophile but these headphones are outstanding. They make the train a walk in the park, a walk to the train more a stroll through the living room and at home, the silence really is bliss.
  • Cons: These really do isolate you from the world. I have no concept of what is going on around. The wires are a bit short but the extension cable really is a quality build.

Worth Every Penny

Jared B., Newegg
5 August 2009
  • Summary: I haven't listened to too many high end headphones, but I'd like to think I know what to listen for when comparing different audio qualities. I've been comparing 4000 kbps 32-bit lossless audio, 800 kbps 24-bit lossless audio, 320 kbps 16-bit mp3's, and 128 16-bit kbps mp3's.
  • Pros: These are probably the best earphones you can buy (aside from custom fitted ones). I received mine a few days ago, and have been nothing but impressed. Build Quality: These earphones are built very well. They are extremely light and don't feel weak in any area. Comfort: These feel very nice. I've...
  • Cons: I have only a minor complaint. It feels like you're going to break the earphones when you change tips. You really have to pull to get them off, and you really have to push to get them on all the way. Yes, the price is a tad high, but I bought mine on sale. Besides, if you look around the internet...

Great Sound

  • Summary: With the Cowon products you get a flac, mp3, etc sound that is outstanding...
  • Pros: They are possibly the best sounding canal earbuds....I have had 4s, tried many other higher end earbuds (including etymotic 6is) previously and these have the best high and low frequency performance of any I have seen! The soft foamy isolators are very comfortable, better than their other various...

Next best to UE-10 Pros

Edna A., Newegg
17 June 2009
  • Summary: You have to use high bit rates it is an absolute must.
  • Pros: The sound quality is amazing I like them because you don't get the distortion you get with regular diaphragm headphones, That plus the triple drivers means you hear absolutely every detail so you must use a high bit rate if not lossless or you will hear the compression errors, they have a very ba...
  • Cons: Hard to remove the foam tips I felt like i was going to break the nozzles off, wish the cables would be able to detach from the headphones like Ultimate ears and of course the cost but are well worth it.

Perfect

Jeremy D., Newegg
15 April 2009
  • Summary: They are expensive, as I'm sure most will pass because of. But if you can, afford them. You'll never need another set again. A cheap set will not in any way compare. Hope this helped.
  • Pros: Bar none, the best cans i've ever owned. The triple driver system delivers just what it claims, perfect, true to a live performance sound. The highs are perfect, the mids are incredible, the bass is balanced with performance quality. They do not distort no matter how high the volume and the inclu...
  • Cons: absolutely none

  • Excerpt: Версия Shure SE535 со сменным кабелем, но остается вопрос нахождения соответствующего кабеля(с разъемом). При должном обращении кабель служит долго, а там уже появляется вопрос о создании кастомов из 530-х т.к. это очень хороший ход. Здорово поднимается удобство и изоляция.
  • Pros: Нет смысла перечислять т.к. это одни из лучших некастомных наушников. ; Сцена, детальность на высоте. Только заушный способ ношения и он очень удобен. Не микрофонит. ; Очень хорошо подходят для рока/рок-н-ролла/хард-рока/металла, но это не значит, что остальные стили плохо отыгрываются. Отнюдь. Н...
  • Cons: Следите за кабелем т.к. отремонтировать его можно, но в Москве это единственный человек, который занимается этим. Остальные боятся ответственности.
