Opened box. Used for a brief listening session. Very good IEM for the price and the kind of thing that I would give for a birthday present.
Postage and packaging is free to the UK.
Etymotic HF2/3/5. Bass heavy headphones are more 'fun' but for competitive gaming you want bass light headphones and the same is true for IEMs. Etymotic have sharp imaging, work well with binaural audio and virtual surround sound. The high noise isolation is also an additional benefit to help you focus on the game.
If you expect it to sound bad then it will probably sound bad.
Someone hears plenty of people saying that EQ makes the sound worse and they either parrot that or try it out themselves under the expectation that it will sound worse and unsurprisingly it sounds worse. That is expectation bias.
