Great iem, could easily compete with other flagship earphone`s (se846, ie800, k3003) if isolation was better

Pros: Bass, timbre, comfort, ergonomics, removable cable, sparkly highs, detailed albeit recessed mids, soundstage

Cons: Isolation, cable perhaps a bit thin past y split, new tips are darn hard to obtain, don`t lose them!

Basically a great all rounder, works well with all genres and should appeal to anyone due to their balanced, slightly bassy sound sig. Bass is never muddy and details are pronounced. It`s a great sounding iem, but not suited for travel due to poor isolation. Works great for home listening and extremely comfy, almost as comfy as my Klipsch X10`s! The soundstage is expansive and has great width and good depth, but don`t lose the phonak tips; they contribute heavily to the nice highs and airy, open sound, I lost one tip and tried using fitting some sony hyrbid tips and found that they sounded no where near as good. Adding fuel to the fire, new phonak tips were only available at one website costing $35 a pair!!.

Try using klipsch gel tips (like the ones on your x10).
Hit's another level.
