“About Me I am a 52 year old audophile, from Bradenton Florida. I have been in this hobby, for about two years. The sound from headphone blew me away, and I dived down the proverbial rabbit hole and have not come back up. I use headphones to cope with pain from a back injury. Furthermore headphones allow me to hear the sound, without out side distractions....” --reddog
“ Prior to purchasing these, my primary concern is to have a proper alternative for my ESW9 which have better isolation to be used for listening to my ballad tunes on the road. While I don't have any issues with louder tracks, with more subtle ones, my ESW9 aren't up to the task, and so my search began. Actually, I'm not really keen on the idea of using an IEM since they irritate my ears...” --lotusbloom
“ The Ortofon e-Q5 is an easy-to-drive low impedance single balanced armature driver designed by Ortofon themselves. It uses OFC cables and the shells are aluminium CNC-ed.

It comes in a nice cylindrical can with a multitude of accessories - tip cleaner, flanges/tips of various sizes,...” --AnakChan

“ -Introduction- I review a lot of budget earphones in the $30–$60 range. It’s not uncommon for me to review an earphone in this price range that’s lauded as a giant-killer, only to be severely disappointed in it’s lackluster performance. The 11 Neo challenges the notion that budget earphones need to be compromised in order to deliver both a dynamic listening experience and a solid...” --Cinder
“ 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
“ The value rating refers to the price I paid: $75 as B-stock from headroom.com. Here is a mini-review. I have been enjoying the Ortofon O-ones for a couple of months. I bought them as a B-stock item from headroom.com for $75. They were listed as "as new" on the B-stock list, and indeed they were an open-box item that looked like new. I find these headphones...” --MarcoGV
“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

It's your next favorite accessory.
