Pros: Comfort(it is subjective), Isolation,

Cons: Tangle prone cable, No chin slider, Might be extremely uncomofortable depending on shape of ear canals, Feels cheap, Sound quality

I am going to keep this short.

 

SOURCE: Cowon C2

320 Kbps Mp3 and Flac files.

 

 

GOOD:

 

- Fits my ear properly. I am sure, whatever i do, they won't fall off. 

- Isolation, is good.

 

BAD:

 

- I feel that based on the shape of ear canals this could turn out to be a nightmare for a few people to wear.

- Just a flimsy pouch and three tips

- Looks and feels cheap when you hold it in hand. Doesn't feel like a $70 product.

- Cables are thin and tangle prone. Actually, it would be very easy to break the cables.

- What the hell? No, chin slider !!!

 

 

UGLY:

 

- Bought them here in India for approximately $70. It doesn't make any sense to buy it at that price. I have read good things about Me electronics M6, should have bought them instead of this.

- Comparing them to HD 25 - 1 II and PX 100 ii, this sounds very weird. Vocals are pushed back. There is no real bass definition. I can't point what is wrong exactly but what I can say is, it doesn't do anything properly.

- Microphonics: if you use it without the shirt clip, get ready for extreme microphonics

 

EDIT: Increasing the Bass on the equalizer, improves it. On my Cowon C2 , I just tried using the X-BASS preset and it really improved the sound.
