“Got this earphones for the sole purpose of working out/biking. Tested out multiple sports headsets (similarly priced), from sennheiser and bose. They tend to sound better, especially than the adidas sennheiser which sound pretty bad for the money. Great bass and clear mids and highs (considering it is bass-centric). It is not neutral by any stretch, but you have to remember they...” --BenKatz
“Intro: I must say the UM2 sounds better than the UM3x which I sold shortly after few months. In short; it sounds more articulate,airy and more expansive. The UM3x sounded too bloated,closed in and collapsed to me; the soundstage was too narrow and the UM2 doesn't share the same trait which is great.

“ I personally prefer the sound of the "Westone" series to the "UM" products. I use my IEM's for listening to pre-recorded music. The sound of the UM series is very good, but the WESTONE 4R is the closest I have come to the sound of my FOCAL speakers.

“ I've had my eye on the Audio Technica CKR series for a good while now. Reading reviews from Head-fiers earfonia and vlenbo had me as excited to hear them as I've been about any headphone. Since I've been exploring other AT products in recent months, including the excellent value IM50 and IM70, it only made sense for me to buy a pair of their higher end budget headphones and the CKR9 was...” --ZapX629

“ CK7 earphone is a nice detailed ear piece with titanium housing which makes it very durable. For me, although i am not using it very often this works the same as it used to be the first day i bought it. They require burn in time at least 100 hours and you can definitely tell the difference in the bass section and the mids. Comfort: i would recommend to be worn...” --FarCry
