“Bought these headphone a month ago. Open it, and I tried it on. After 15-30 minutes of listening, I was amazed! These sound better than any IEM I ever came across. And I tried Klipsh s2, Logitech Ultimate ears, Westone 4r, Shure 425, and Hifiman re-400. For Full size headphone I tried Grado 225i/e, Grado 325is, Grado RS1i, Hifiman he-400, Hifiman he-500, V-moda M-100, and Sennheiser HD650. This...” --cheesegrados
“I bought these as an upgrade from the W3, which while extremely fun, I soon became disappointed in, due to mid bass bleed into the midrange.

“ This is great for the price. Its sound reminds me of Stax headphones or electrostatic speakers, both of which I don't own, but have heard on a few occasions. It needs extensive(100+ hours?) breaking in to help tame the highs and bring out the bass. If you want a slightly warmer sound or are treble sensitive, then choose the Panasonic RP-HJE355 instead, although some may want...” --JK1
“Bass response doesn't bleed to the vocals or any other frequencies whatsoever, lightweight cable with no microphonics and a narrow plug to connect to portable devices. The Westone has a powerful, detailed and clear sound that does not under or overemphasize anything. A polite sound as another writer described with a mid-bass bump and upper treble elevation without been...” --squallkiercosa
“ Background I'm not sure where to start with these. My last pair of IEM's were the Vsonic GR06's and they were some fantastic $60 IEM's but unfortunately one of the driver housings cracked in half due to my brother leaving them dangling from a car door when he went on a trip and despite my best efforts to weld the plastic back together; it didn't stay together without falling apart. I...” --bfchang
