Pros: Good sound quality, good selection of tips

Cons: Cheap, no case, microphonics

Fortunately the one...

I've titled this with a (V2) marking to distinguish that these are vastly different than the original ones. If you are interested in where to purchase these head on over to MP4nation where they have the best price and world wide shipping!   Pros: Punchy bass, clarity, price, Comply tips, no microphonics Cons: Slightly recessed mids, build quality   Packaging     I'm not sure whether this is the final design or not but so far it looks clean and simple, which I like. I wonder whether it's...
