“ 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
“ I looked around for a review on these and didnt find many, so bought a pair and heres what i found out. - Nice build quality - Good comfortable fit - Worst cable design I have ever seen (wtf were they thinking?!) - Easy to be driven - Extremely well defined mids & highs (these are not laid back and softsounding!) - Good soundstage...” --fabiosouzajr

“I bought these last summer during a visit to Taiwan. I had hoped to buy a replacement Audio-Technica CKM500 (which broke) but they have been replaced with the CKR5 which are a bit of a let-down with its bloated bass and congested soundstage. After trying out various headphones, the salesperson suggested the AH-C560, a mid-range Denon IEM released in 2010. Although they have been considered...” --FYLegend
“ 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. As with most Japanese products, presentation is important and the e-Q5 doesn't disappoint. It comes in a nice cylindrical can with a multitude of accessories - tip cleaner, flanges/tips of various sizes,...” --AnakChan
“ I've tried out several pairs of in-ear phones and never got used to the feel of them. These are much more inviting straight away, as several earpads of different sizes are included. I found my size and was off to the races. The cable is a bit short, and I usually have to bring the included extension cable along with me on my commute. This is not a problem, just an...” --phallumontis
Denon’s new $249 AH-C300 may be the biggest, bassiest in-ear monitor in headphone history. Each of the IEM’s seemingly bulky earpieces has one of Denon’s patented Double Air Compression Drivers. It’s an arrangement with dual 11mm drivers, both firing at each other into a chamber that vents directly to your ear. A miniature control wheel gives the same functionality as on...

“ The Denon AH C250 - it's like a pretty gold ring that doesn't fit every finger. Yes, it's good. Quite good. Yet the likability is highly dependant on what it's best at and what it doesn't do great. This particular IEM, while mostly neutral were it not for some noticeable lack of energy in the upper notes, is geared towards audiophiles rather than...” --redeyeguy
