“The ES800 are the kind of IEMs you won't like how they sound out of the box: they sound thin and aggressive, with piercing mids and highs. Then you will question the design: the hideous "gold drop" on the back, the flat cable, the enormous cable splitter. The tips are not so good either. So, there is a chance that, for 3 or 4 dollars, you will give it to that annoying cousin, or forget about it...” --Mellowship
“I actually have the ES900m, which doesn't have microphone and control buttons, but the rest is the same. For $6 it's impossible to buy a pair of earphones as good as them. 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
“My experience with this one was enjoyable while it lasted. I liked the sound quality, a whole step above peasant IEMs on that price range. They're big so I had to fiddle quite a bit to get a good seal, also I suggest to wear the cable over the ear to avoid extra noise when the cable moves. People with small ears will have trouble with this ones. The cable produces noise, not very good. The...” --zareliman
“ 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. Somewhat...” --pro1137
“ This is my first foray into the electrostatic world and won't be my last. Everything that has been written in the past about Stax is borne true in listening to these phones. Liquid mid's, shimmering treble and a suprising amount of deep, strong bass. Even though described as portable I would not go outside with these. They are my in the house set up as they offer little or no...” --ianmedium

“STAX SR-002 - little exotic, once quite large - A Review Intro: A Stax as earphone - seriously? These were my first thoughts when I heard from the Stax SR-002. The strange appearance, the additional amp module, the strange proprietary cable and this completely open design and funny shape, let them me to put the idea back from buying one. A big mistake as I was able to notice...” --h1f1add1cted
