  • Summary: lack of high fidelity sound, bass it way overwhelmed hinder the mid and high, there's a mid hump bass, not good enough sub-bass, no punchy drum bass pedal. don't buy it, it's not worth it. even philips she3595 is so much better when using EQ in poweramp app for android.
  • Pros: great build quality
  • Cons: pure sound performance for this price range

  • Summary: These iems are better than some entry levels (Shure 215/ hifiman RE0/ RE 400/ Sennheiser CX300) with a wider soundstage due to the 13mm dynamic driver , however need serious burn in for at least 50 hours to shine , lack sub bass and treble , perfect with vocals (Norah Jones / Yael Naim/ Celine Dion), not so convincing with classical music even at 24/96, bass not punchy enough for electronic /dub but should be fine with reggae, pop and alternative genres.
  • Pros: level of details, vocals, soundstage
  • Cons: poor treble, need burn in for at least 50 hours , muddy with bad recordings

  • Summary: I bought this at the Sony Store and regretted by purchase for the first two days. They were very dull sounding. I found myself searching for eq setting to get some high frequency response. But on the third say I noticed the treble opening up. Previously select EQs became to bright. These will never be Grado-revealing, but the highs opened up to reveal a nicely balanced earbud. I won't even mention the bass because that was always fabulous.
  • Pros: Kicking bass and smooth signature
  • Cons: break-in required

  • Summary: here's a weird thing about them: these sounds punchy and more enjoyable if worn around the ear (worn somehow like se215), if worn normally, these sound little bit muddy and mainstream, unrefined and lacks punch. i don't know why, but it's true (might not work for you, don't blame me). wearing them around the ear is a bit tricky though!   Sound: After burn-in (and worn around ear), the soundstage is large, bass extended well and punchy.
  • Pros: price, durability, tangle free cord, isolation, loudness, bass, details, large driver.
  • Cons: sounds muddy before proper burn-in. also, doesn't sound as good if worn normally.

  • Summary: Overall a great product at this price. The bass as expected was up-to the mark. Read a few reviews that the bass is overpowering, but as a non purist music enthusiast, I was delighted by the output. Overall a great product & would recommend it. N.B. - I have never used any other head phones or ear phones other than Sony.

Perfect for the Gym.

RAHUL JOSHI, amazon.in

  • Summary: I use these for listening to Heavy Metal music at the Gym. I pair them with my Ipod Nano as well as the Classic. Equalizer set to Hip Hop / Latin / Classic depending on whether I'm listening to Killswitch / 5FDP / Otep / Marilyn Manson / Theater of Tragedy / etc... Excellent Bass & Mids. Great fit with the 2nd smallest ear pieces. They never fall out whether I'm lifting vertically or pushing horizontally.

Nice earphones. shipped pretty fast and were AUTHENTIC

Kuldeep Kaushal, amazon.in

  • Summary: Nice earphones. shipped pretty fast and were AUTHENTIC. I am stressing on this word, as i had earlier purchased the same from a retailer called Xpressonline Shopping, and the ones sent by those were FAKE (easily discernible). These earphones are okay, but have heard better at a lower price point such as Meelectronics RX11 or Creative ep630 or Monoprice 8320. But the build quality of these was awesome.
