Pros: Balance, lovely bass, lightweight. They sound lovely and have 2 years warranty.

Cons: Accessories pretty bare bones.

Only short review from me.

 

Since the "The Wirecutter" claimed these would be the best IEMs under $100 I had to try them when I saw them for $49 on a very special sale.

 

They are fantastic allrounders, the bass is pronounced a tad bloated maybe, but pleasurable to listen to, clarity, pretty decent miss and good details in the highs make this headphone a steal for the money.

 

I didn't think that beyerdynamic made good in ears after a quite mediocre one I tried some time ago. However, with this one they have hit the sweet spot of sound quality for money. I tested them with an AK100 Mk2 and a Fiio X5 (also stacked with C5D).

 

For $100 I am not sure if it's the best deal you can get, for a substantial discount though you hardly find anything comparable with 2years warranty and service centers all around the world.

Pros: COMFORT, Sound Quality

Cons: Build Quality, Sub-Bass

TL;DR : Don't be lazy, I already made the review super short

 

Let's just keep this short, I got the MMX102IE (same version just with a mic and 1 button remote) for about 40$ cuz of a discount (You could still get it at about 70$ in my country)

I will be judging from 4 aspects : Design, Build Quality, Comfort, and Sound Quality

 

Design (4 out of 5)

Decent design, doesn't scream "look at me!" like beats does, although it looks kind of cheap :/

 

Build Quality (3.5 out of 5)

I broke mine in a few months, nuff said (right side stopped working). The cable downright SUCKS on these, not fitting for the 100$ price range you guys have in 'MURICA. Strain relief isn't bad, but could be better, and the ones that connect the cable to the jack feels flimsy after long term use. The body of the earpieces are very good though.

 

Comfort (6 out of 5)

Yeah I'm cheating here :p. The comfort on these is SUPERB! Once you pick the right eartips and insert it to your ear you forget about it COMPLETELY. If you have any discomfort for IEMs, try these out.

 

Sound Quality (4.5 out of 5)

Let's start by saying that i like the sound signature. Boosted mid-bass with smooth treble and clear mids. The bass is punchy and has a lot of impact, but the sub-bass is really lacking compared to the mid bass. The mids are clear and really enjoyable, and the treble is smoothed out so it sounds non-fatiguing. Isolation is a little above average.

 

Well that just sums it up, thx for reading!

Pros: Comes with a nice case

Cons: Sound quality, build quality and too noisy for walking.

I bought these to replace my dead Klipsch Image S2-ii after reading many reviews, because I wanted to try something else in the 60-70$ price range for use with my Sansa Clip Zip, and was very disappointed.  Even with the proper ear tips (small), they sounded lifeless and dull in terms of bass, lows, mids and highs compared to my former S4-ii, which I know are a bit too bassy.  I use AKG K712's with my Sound Blaster Z, but still did not find the Klipsch to be a significant downgrade by comparison, while the DTX's sounded awful, in fact I barely preferred them over the included in-ear phones which came with the Sansa Clip Zip.  Furthermore, minor tension while making cause a significant amount of audible noise, as do minor movement compared to the S4-ii's.  The Beyers were happily returned in favor of the Audeo Phonak PFE 122's which sound far better, even though the Sansa Clip Zip is not good enough to power them (they sound amazing when connected to my SBZ though).
