“A mids-focused specialist with a little bass thump and smooth, relaxed treble (recessed, but still has some detail). Not an especially engaging sound (a little too relaxed maybe). Decent across genres, but tend to congestion during busy/noisy passages. I find them particularly useful for low volume podcast legibility, though with podcasts that are poorly leveled, subject to intrusive volume...” --Raketen
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...

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.

“ 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

“ 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
