“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.

Somewhat...” --pro1137
“First review on head-fi ever. I don't have much to say less the ratings that i've came up with below. Don't take my review seriously though. Different ears, different sound impression. But what i do like about the CT-500E is how the lows/mids/highs work together cohesively. They don't bleed into each other. It makes the CT-500E analytical in a sense but more to the musical kind.
