Good sound, poor build quality

Mr. Jt Clulow, Amazon
11 July 2015
  • Summary: Pros Good, we'll balanced sound. The bass is strong, but not comically so, mids are clearly separated and treble is good (all after EQing) Attractive design Cons Another victim of poor build quality. The earphone housing just fell off.

Capable of truly excellent sound BUT, BUT, BUT (Please read update!)

Mr. Martin Brown, Amazon
9 January 2015
  • 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 or 2 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.

ONLY NOT BAD!!

Sam, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Not bad!! The sound out of these headphones depend on the volume and the amp of your device. At low volume these sound awful, you barely hear any treble. But at high volume they sound reasonably well. Still I would go for Sennheiser CX300 or CX475.

  • 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.

Well-built headphones with a very disappointing sound

Bobbyzero, Amazon

  • 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...
