“Initial Impressions Out of the box they are not impressing me. At all. Hopefully aggressive burn in with white noise will fix them. Otherwise they are headed for the return heap as defective. I'll update this after 12 hours or so. I won't even bother comparing them with my other 'phones unless the harmonics I mention settle down. Sound Treble: Rolled off. ...” --adevriesc
“I love these earbuds. At the time of writing, these are literally my favorite in ears ever. While Im sure they cant compete with anything over $200, I've never payed more than $45 for earbuds.
