“ Preamble: Before I move over to my preamble, I’d like to give out a warm thank to Tatco Ma, the man behind LEAR, for providing me with a sample of the updated NS-U1 in-ears and NSC-03 cable free of charge in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion. LEAR, founded 2008 in Hong Kong by the Hong Kong Forever Source Digital, one of the most well-known local...” --HiFiChris
“ Update: Reduced design rating due to ever-tangling cable. The cable is MADE with some type of built-in twisting/tangling design flaw. Just holding the headphones in my hand, the cable wants to twist and turn and due to its material, it's never fully "straightened out" like most other headphone cables. Due to this, it's become unusable. I've owned the original Bose IEs and now bought these...” --xx0xx
“The Sennheiser HD-600/HD-650 headphones & the Bose SoundTrue Ultra earphones compared Big headphones and small earphones I've tried on earphones and IEMs (in ear monitors) from various vendors over the years but could never find any that were value for money and sounded good. Until now. Always a fan of the Sennheiser HD-600 and HD-650...” --skris88

“ I love to see well-established audio companies with a solid lineup on offer. Someone like Parasound, Sennheiser, or PSB will almost always have their bases covered with budget, midrange, and fairly expensive models to choose from. That's great because it allows access for all sort of folks, regardless of budget. But you know what I love even more than...” --project86
“ Review LCM-A1d I was watching LEAR for some time, particularly their range of custom headphones. LEAR has a good reputation in the field and turned heads with their innovations like the hybrid LCM-BD4.2. When they recently the LCM-A1d, a single dynamic driver custom IEM, whose sound signature is tunable via a integrated potentiometer and starts selling for 2’000 HKD (260 USD, ...” --cyph3r
“You can already tell if this iem is for you by looking at the pros and cons. I personally use it a lot due to the sake of convenience (rechargeable battery, noise cancelling, wireless) and it gets the job done. I might give this a five stars had it been priced $150, but every Bose overcharges. Audio quality is nothing spectacular, nor is it bad- it is acceptable. These are the best...” --Pawn
“ Really a horrible set of headphones for the money. I got these way back as an upgrade from stock ipod headphones and was blown away by the bass. At the time all I wanted was bass and boy did they deliver. At the time I loved them but as my music interests grew and expanded so did my realization that I had horrible headphones. Last year I picked up a set of AWEI ES-Q3 off...” --kitten wizard
