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. I won't even mention the bass because that was always fabulous. If you like impactful powerful bass, these are your earbuds. And once they open up, they have a highly listening, if warm, presentation. Good detail and a satisfy overall signature for lovers of warmer phones. These are very nice earbuds and I am ordering a second pair, despite them being solid and well constructed. I prefer these over entry level Shures and others I have tried, included buds costing $100. A very pleasant and low kicking bud!
