Pros: Great forward mids, tight, controlled base, smooth treble

Cons: Right channel does not work out of iPod Classic on these headphones ony

I was really looking forward to enjoying these. After plugging them in, I quickly realized that there was very little sound coming from the right IEM. I plugged them into my Fiio E11, and wow. These are far better in each and every respect than my B&W C5s, which were far too bass heavy for my tastes.

Sure they're not broken?
These IEMs have a TRRS plug that is configured for balanced output. The box contains two adapters, one for changing it to TRS and another for reversing the channels if they're more comfortable in the opposite ear.
Why such a low score when you seem to like them very much?
Lol nice review.
@Phos so I'm guessing the Fiio E11 has a TRRS output jack?
No, its ground contact is just big enough to hit both of the 262's ground contacts
3.5 stars is not a low rating....
5 stars=best in the world for price
4.5=among the best
4=extremely good
3.5-good
3-ok
2.5-meh
2-they kinda suck
1.5-bad
1-they are crap
.5-beneath the s***
