Pros: Great isolation, detailed bass, accurate highs

Cons: build quality has room for improvement

Overall excellent buds, very good sound quality, especially for their price, the medium set of tips fits exactly in my ears and provides a near perfect seal. Bass is very detailed, but not overpowering, and the highs are very accurate and present.

Sadly, however, after 1 year and 1 week (which takes me just out of warranty) the right earphone has died, so I am now looking to get some gr07's etysmile.gif

i have a pair of it too. feel very good.
You should post a review also, I noticed when I was buying them there is next to no reviews on them, a shame really because they're quite good
I think one of the reasons I got such a good sound out of these is because I got an excellent seal, I could see how if someone didn't get such a good seal they wouldn't be as good. Luck of the draw I guess
I have a pair too, but the bass is too much and boomy for me.
Isolation is okay only. Decent clarity and quite a fun sound IMO though.
se215 make more sense i think,better isolation and decent bass. Unless it doesn't fit you or you want a emphasized highs.
Talking about fitting,do you have any sony hybrid tips that you can try to fit on cx870?
The stock medium tips fit me just okay but medium hybrid tips i tried have always been perfect seal for me.
Nope, as I said, one side has stopped working, roll on the GR07's
