“The Awei Q9s are really bang for bucks! You can't go wrong with these! Unless you have tiny ears... Packaging: the packaging is standard. It brings the S/M/L tips and a shirt-clip. However, the earbuds are snugged in a very good foamy protective material. Build quality: the Q9s look nice and they sure are big. So big that I doubt anyone with small ears will be able to insert...” --Mellowship
“ I’ve worked with Accutone IEMs before. However, I’ve never been so thoroughly satisfied a product of theirs. Almost every build-quality complaint I’ve had before lies dead at the feet of the Pavo, and the sound quality is a head above even their flagship IEM, the Gemini HD.

I really believe that the body of the earphones are metal, even if they are not, it's made of a very durable plastic. It's nothing like the entry-level Sony or Philips earphones which are made of cheap...” --mrplt

It is truly a thing of Beauty. But once you wear them in your ears, you will realize the Taurus is a rare breed, with...
“ What can I say about these? I saw a lot of people going for the Awei branded items on eBay, so I got one myself. They were surprisingly good and surprisingly bad at the same time. I will explain. Pros Housing build - For $2, an aluminum housing is quite exceptional. Accessories - While the Awei K80 only comes with one pair of tips, they are surprisingly pretty high quality.
