“I bought my first set of 8320 two years or more back. They were very flat in the beggining then someone sugested these should be burned in for a few days with white noise. An old cell phone and white noise generator helped break these things in. Man o man what a difference. Made my bose IEM look like dollar store headphones. Sound is a relative thing IMHO just like taste in food. Some like...” --engineerd3d
“ Monoprice MHP-839 the budget performer *Note, this review also applies to the Kicker HP541 which is a rebrand of the same headphone. So I have both reviews with the non-model-specific info simply copy & pasted. Same headphone! A couple of us here on Head-Fi were looking for some budget performers that could compete with higher end headphones that are constantly being...” --MalVeauX
“So I am fairly new to the audio world. The Monoprice 8323 was my second purchase on starting to get into headphones (after Superlux HD681 EVOs). I have had these headphones for about 6 months now. First the bad things about them. The cables and pads are the let downs in terms of build quality. There are two cables. The first is really long and cheap feeling. It also has pretty bad...” --93EXCivic
“ These IEM's arent the greatest. But these ARE the greatest for $5!! Seperation is great, Clarity is great, Detail is great! Bass is superb! Doesnt muddle out the highs and mids. This is the best buds that ive had for just $5! A reminder, these arent audiophile IEM's, but because if the price, they are probably the best IEM's out there! ” --Ezio
“I purchased these a long time ago after reading reviews that these were a good budget option in the earphone category. To save time, i am just going to jump in to the sound quality section.. Bass: A little bass light for my tastes, but i can live with it. I doubt people are going to complain with these at the price they are offered at. It has decent punch to it, but like i said, a...” --zach8278
“Expanding on the pros, other likes- - These cans are pretty comfortable imo, with the velour pads and soft headband. I havent had any problems with pressure points on the headband, and have been able to wear them for several hours on end without much fatigue. Clamping force is just right. Tighter than, for example, a Creative Aurvana Live, but looser than my FA-011s. Fairly light weight. -...” --kidcharlemagne
“Monoprice has quietly entered the Planar Magnetic Headphone market with two entries. The smaller, portable M560, and the as of yet released M1060, that appears to be aimed at the upper end planar market dominated by HifiMan and Audeze. The M560 is a nicely built, sturdy headphone that is very comfortable. It can be used as both an open and a closed back headphone. ...” --MLGrado
