Great earbud for the money

Pros: Kicking bass and smooth signature

Cons: break-in required

I bought this at the Sony Store and regretted by purchase for the first two days. They were very dull sounding. I found myself searching for eq setting to get some high frequency response. But on the third say I noticed the treble opening up. Previously select EQs became to bright. These will never be Grado-revealing, but the highs opened up to reveal a nicely balanced earbud.

philips she3595 is so much better when using EQ

Pros: great build quality
