“ OK, so this is a budget offering from Beyerdynamic, saw this on sale on the local Jaben site and decided to give it go! It was packaged in a neat, small box, with magnetic opening to a window to get a glimpse of what you are buying. Really nice touch to it.

“Quest to the Beyerdynamic Astell & Kern T8iE (AKT8iE): My journey began with a quest to complement my ER4S which I've used exclusively for 1 year. I loved the ER4S and it was one of the best headphones I've used for critical listening with prominent treble and vocal response. However, I found myself listening less and less to modern pop, house music, trance and dubstep because the ER4S...” --atoniolin
“ In short: + Stylish looks + Comfortable + Powerful bass reproduction, flat but present mids, rolled off yet detailed and even sparkly highs, usually good separation + EQ-able +- "Dark" sound signature, tends to favor the bass and lower mids. Not perfectly analytical nor overly musical +- Best for pop and pop/rock - Lack of sub-bass detail, bass can be boomy - Impact not consistently...” --Shonen84

“Most people are looking for assurances that the reviewer of a product is qualified, so allow me to indulge briefly: I'm a lifelong musician, sound engineer, and headphone enthusiast/general audiophile. I love music not only for the artistry and quality of arrangement, musicianship, etc, but also for the beauty of sound that comes from the recording/mastering process, ultimately delivered...” --erisearth

“ As many know these are a nice upgrade and quite price conscience. I do like the accessory pack and methods of lengthening the cable. I use them while flying and usually wear them the entire flight (even for 20+ hours) due to their good sound isolation. If used on a plane should get a sound attenuating patch cord adapter as these are very sensitive. They are superb compared to the inflight...” --smurphy522
“I bought these in February 2012 for £75 at amazon.co.uk and have used them every day except for about one week when I was awaiting delivery of a replacement cable. Typical use is with a variety of personal players (iRiver H140 and H340, Sansa Clip+, Archos A43IT) as well as with PC audio and occasionally with home audio. I listen to many kinds of (usually lossless) music but most often...” --julian67
“ I like this phone so much I am onto my second pair. Are they perfect? No. Are they the best IEM for the price? Unless you get them at $79 like I did the second time, no. Do they have a good soundstage? Not really. Are they durable? Like a boat made of paper. But...Do they isolate well? With the Shure olives, hell yes. Do they have delicous, buttery mids that I could and have listened to...” --paddy567
