Pros: Awesome for the price

Cons: Somewhat congested soundstage but not terrible

These phones are great, for their value, even at retail price these are quite good.


Though I do not have past exp. with other etymotics, I could sum these as very clear, tight bass but not lacking, unless the track you're playing is.

the mids are a little emphasized, but it's not too obvious the seperation is also very good,

If I were to give an example these are like an artistic version of



That is regarding the soundstage, but it's not that big a of a con considering its other traits.


This is after a few hours of critical usage of these, source is a J3 with some EQing. Also,

they are currently unamped.


Good luck,


Jo JS.
