Pros: Comfort.

Cons: Build quality, sound quality, isolation

I bought these because the sound of the wind I could hear during cycling while wearing headphones was annoying me and I figured I might as well give IEMs a try instead of buying another pair of headphones, however I did not want to spend a lot of money on something I might not find comfortable.
In short, these IEMs are harsh and sibilant with an overwhelming amount of muddy and bloated bass which makes the mids sound really recessed, I wouldn't recommend using them without any form of equalization as that huge treble spike around 7-8kHz is really going to cause listening fatigue. The cable feels flimsy and fragile and the same could be said about the plug, I would be surprised if it didn't break within the first two months of using it.
