A lot of money, clear bass, clear treble, mids missing or boosted too high.

  • Summary: For the money involved, I had hoped for a bit more from these buds... so here's my take on them. First off, I should commend these on the absolutely clear bass and treble that they deliver.. The bass response is nice in that it's clear, without being punchy or muddy.

Capable of truly excellent sound BUT, BUT, BUT

Mr. Martin Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: These are extremely frustrating earphones! It seems to be extraordinarily difficult to get them to sound good (Music used was all 16/44.1 & 24/96). Hooked up to my Benchmark DAC1 they sound truly impressive.

Too crisp!

  • Summary: Brittle sound, too crisp for my ears. Perhaps after some hours of burn in, it might get more mellow.

Very good sound quality but comes at a hefy price

Divyanshu Chavhan, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: These headphones are made for audiophiles. If you are buying your first IEM then i would not recommend it. Lows and highs are well balanced and instrument separation is very good but you need an uncompressed audio source for that level of detail.

Well-built headphones with a very disappointing sound

Bobbyzero, Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: I have owned several pairs of Sony headphones over the years, but after trying these the love is gone. The positives first: - They are light and comfortable to wear, even for an extended period - There's a big selection of earbuds to find the correct fit - 3 different sizes, each with standard and a...

Where's the drive?

BigmanJ, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: I like clarity and bass that really drives the music I listen to on my iPod (most of it at least 256 kbps / EQ normally set on 'Rock'); this seems not an easy thing to do without spending three figure sums, which I am loathe to do right now.

tinny sound

Peter "Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for br..., Amazon

  • Summary: Not as good as seinhauser. The design of this product makes the actual earphones very noisy when moving due to vibration that is transferred to your ears.

The other reviews are spot on

Mr. I. J. Bowden "dinoian", Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I was first drawn to these earphones upon a visit to my local Sony Centre. Unlike many of the other earphones, these were locked in a glass cabinet, and my thoughts were that these were highly desirable to shoplift. More so than the rest of the range. Therefore they must be really good.
