Summary: Another strange quirk that worries me is that sound in my right ear bud was iffy at first, requiring my to tap the bud with my finger to get it to work. I figure that there was something from manufacture lodged in the bud that obstructed it, but so far, it seems to work fine.
Pros: I consider myself a moderate audiophile, while not going to extremes I do require above average earbuds/speakers. In this case I was truly blown away by the quality of these earbuds AFTER I got them the way they were meant to be.
Cons: The silicone ear grommets are really difficult to remove, as I fear tearing them while I somehow pry them off. You really have to dig in with a finger nail and pry them. Putting them back on I found out was even WORSE. I ended up using a hobby set of needle nose pliers to stretch the opening out and barely managed to get them back on. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I will note that this is not at all easy to do.
Summary: Best IEM use only one driver i have . Amazing sound if you like guitar , piano . Treb very nice , sparkler treb Mid perfect , open mid Bass impact good and punchy with deep bass Recomment , best IEM use only 1 Dynamic driver ever .
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Highly recommmended! Delightful to listen to/through for anything: rock, country, classical! Really clear and wide soundstage when used with a low-audio-distortion chipset such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 found in smartphones like the US AT&T version of the HTC One X, and the US version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Bass is solid and crisp.
Summary: Impacting noise canceling, especially for places like NYC. Superior audio quality: Picks up every single effect in songs. Great if you are a percussion, piano and Guitar lover. Don't need to use EQ unless you love exaggerating certain frequencies which this pair does nicely. KEEP IN MIND that after 3-5 days of use is when the truth pops out from this great earphones. so, burn an notice difference.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: The clarity of these earphones are amazing. In my own extensive comparison with the VSonic GR07, these came out on top (for me). I rambled a bit on this in another forum, but I'll just pick a few excerpts instead of linking it. First, the comparison against the GR07: The guitar in "Collide" sounds muffled or dampened on the GR07. Similar effect in "Under My Bed" by Meiko - the intro sounds much clearer on the Yams.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Instrument Separation, Lightweight, Soundstage, Stylish
Summary: This is my second pair of EPH-100s. I purchased my first pair in the beginning of 2012 some while after they became a FOTM here on Head-fi. Strangely enough I would have thought that they would have increased in price with the popularity these have, but I got the second pair for $15 less than the first pair I bought. The first pair survived a lot of hours of music at work, but the housings were starting to fall apart.
Summary: Sound quality:
When I tried the eph-100 for the first time , I can't say there was a "wow factor" ; however they just sounded "fine".
From my cowon player s9, I tried to play with the different jeteffects to "enhance" the sound, but none of the DSP really made an interesting difference .Hence , if you don't have any good eq, or DSP on your mp3 player, you won't miss this with the eph-100.
Pros: very airy sound, isolation, decent bass,portability, design, built quality
Summary: Bought these two months ago, and they are my favorite IEM to date. One thing to note is that I did indeed get the condensation problem. It has only happened a handful of times, and has completely cured up, but it is something to be aware of. I had to dock a half star from the Design rating because of this issue. They're still my favorite IEMs, though. I might have some funny ear canals too, as most people never got the problem.
Pros: Sound is clear and crisp, great sub-bass response
