“I've used several earphones by several companies and at price points ranging from $50-$400 but I use these while commuting by train in Tokyo. I bought mine in Japan for ￥4500 or about $50 retail after listening to them after having read in Hi-Fi + magazine. I tried various earphones at the store but failed to find a pair that surpassed them at the price point. I prefer a crisp...” --gdbk

Strangely enough I would have thought that they would have increased in price with the popularity these have, but I got the second pair for $15 less than the first pair I bought. The first pair survived a lot of hours of music at work, but the housings were...” --daerron
“These buds came from amazon I was simply looking for something more suited to the bass head genre of music that really packed a punch. True these do pack a punch but to be very honest with you all they only pack a punch. The bass is actually extremely poor, there is a difference between punch and tight punch.
