Fantastic iem by Audio Technica

Pros: Awesome performance for the price!

Cons: Should have bought more!

    Recommended by Dsnuts, was told that it will be an upgrade from the TT Isarus.   Much more refined and beautiful bass!   Mid's and High's are complimented with a delicious refined low end.   Soundstage is full and wide with great detail and clarity. Very fluid, very listenable and non fatiguing!   Comfortable and stays securely in your ear. Changed the tips to comply T-400's which improved the isolation and making the sound even more alive.   These will be my daily's for a very long time and it will be sad when they are finally replaced but my next IEM's have big shoes to fill!
