“Hello fellow Head-fiers!. This is my first review in Head-fi, but before I begin, I'd like to give a brief introduction about me. I'm an average individual who loves listening to almost wide range of music genres from classic to rock, except current pop, rap, and hip-hop, but I mainly listen to songs as long as they sound good! I primarily listen to metal and rock; but recently, I've gotten...” --Gandasaputra

“Released earlier this year, the e-Q8s are a pair of single balanced armature (BA) driver earphones which are the new flagship to Ortofon’s long stagnant IEM lineup. I purchased mine not too long after their release in April 2014 for 36930 yen (approx.

The bass in these gives a punch that makes your ears rumble but the actual detail and...” --Hawkinssa
“I really like this earphone because it gives you wonderful sound quality at a reasonable cost. When I started listening to all the songs on my laptop with this earphone and also all of the smooth jazz, it was as if the whole world was cut off because of the noise cancellation. I use it on the airplane and I couldnt hear the tons of babies that were on the plane . I tried it with three...” --SandyMan
“ This "moving armature" descendant of the Ortofon e-Q7 makes no sacrifices in terms of quality, despite being introduced at a more affordable price point. The introduction of a new cord and strain relief system help tame microphonics and make the model easy to wear both down and over the ear.

“ 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
