Pros: Build Quality / Sound Quality / Value

Cons: Thin Wiry Wire / Not The End All In Detail

Nothing is perfect & these earbuds are certainly a compromise. None the less, they are not too bright, not too boomy, not too recessed, & not too expensive.

The sound is overall rich & smooth; therefore far less fatiguing yet still enjoyable.

Soundstage is lacking, still separation is very good giving impressive imaging [for the device category & price].

Fit is way too personal too recommend for any head spks. Too each their own.


Enjoy!

I actually found them to be quite boomy. I would describe it as substantial bass that can sometimes over power the rest of the range. It's great for thump heavy tracks and genres, like dance, D&D, and the like.
 
The fit is quite particular, and can hurt if the metal ends touch your ear.
"Quite Boomy" compared too what?
The metal touching your ear, it's totally dependent on the position of the unit not being level & the shape of one's ear.
As well as being true for ALL metal and non-metal earbuds, not just this model.
As my comment on comfort in the review stated:
"Fit is way too personal too recommend for any head spks. Too each their own."
