“Design: The IM-04 is quiet bulky, but it is rounded off in the inner side, and with the short nozzles I have found no fitting issues whatsoever. The body is shinny with pitch black color, and a gold logo of Audio Technica. The shells are made of hard plastic, and of what kind of quality and durability is up to guesses, but I will have to go with "Japan made" and say...” --Whitigir
“This is my first review for a product so I maybe lacking details in some areas or using the wrong terms. Forgive me for that. I did buy these in Japan at a department store called Joshin so I don't have the technical details but you can find them here http://www.audio-technica.co.jp/atj/show_model.php?modelId=2305. In terms of USD I think I payed roughly $65 and they were definitely worth...” --purpledrank
“I bought a gold coloured Sony XBA 10 in a retail store in Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia for about 42 USD about 2 month ago. Fairly old stock with original box but plastic wrap still half intact- means it never been open before. They are made in Thailand. True enough the earphone and all the accesories are still intact inside. Many pairs of Sony silicone/ hybrid tip. Unfortunately even with the best...” --AzimAkbar
“When I got these headphones I was expecting something more than the ex-10lps, but what I got wasn't really that. The treble is very crashy, sometimes to the point which it isn't pleasant to your ears. The mids are alright, only sometimes will they be distorted by the other registers. The bass is lacking, despite the box saying that it has "Rich Bass". One of the things that I do like...” --yousakura
“ As of 2013, I could only find one pair of these on the internet. It's a shame because from my experience, cheap earbuds are oriented around the muffled bass emphasis and exhausting higher mid ranges. I myself came from the Audio Technica a900x and Bose IE2's which sound darker compared to these $10 earbuds. I love rich vocals and acoustic...” --Nec3
“ XBA-A2 The title says "Japanese import" and I had to an add and search just to do a review. I went on a mission yesterday I had no preconceptions or ideas except I wanted a delivery of mids like my open back...” --Hawaiibadboy
“Color! Because I feel in the mood for it. No, not really, this is just for the comparison. So, Red, & Green? Red - Not For Me. Green - Solid, & something I personally like. Comparison is going to be the first part of this review. IM50 vs IM02 IM50 - Comfort of tips, Thick Mids(Sometimes so thick sounding it they become congestive), Shell can be hard to fit in some...” --whitemass
