Pros: Neutral, detailed and open sound. Price.

Cons: Cable is a bit flimsy. Pretty heavy. Straight plug.

This is not going to be a long review scrutinizing every aspect of how it sounds or other features. I will try to keep it to the point. 
 
 

Sound 
Very balanced out between the lows, mids and highs. The upper midrange and highs are nicely detailed but possess no harshness or sibilance. Very clear sweet sounding midrange. Not sweet sounding as in colored but transparent. Bass have good punch for an earbud and is nicely layered. I have found this earbud to work well with pretty much anything I have thrown at it music wise. Everything from hiphop to classical is sounding great. The above average size soundstage makes it good for "audiophile" type music. Overall I think it sounds a bit like a HD-600 just not as refined. 
 
 
Comfort 
Some how my left ear is loving these a bit more than the right one but on a whole I found them to be great in this aspect. The solid metal housing and large driver makes them a bit heavy so if you are sensitive to earbuds this could be an extra problem.  
 
 
Quality And Looks 
The heavy duty metal housing induces confidence in durability, but at the same time the cable is tangle prone and a bit flimsy. Hisoundaudio call this an audiophile grade earphone of which I can agree. The cable is however anything but audiophile grade quality. They are also pretty funky looking. 
 
 

Conclusion 
For the price I really believe this to be an excellent and all-round earphone. If this was 150 USD I still think it would be a fair deal.
