Anyone tried these?: Audeo Earphones claim to be the most comfortable - SlashGear

They sent me a preproduction pair to demo, a few months ago.

They're probably a good (and less expensive) alternative for people that like the ER-4 or q-Jays sound. But keep in mind that I only heard the prototype - I have no idea if they changed the sound in the final version.

That removable silicon memory "wire" is an excellent idea, and quite comfy. Hope they sell it separately, a lot of phones could use that silicon add-on for better around-the-ear fit and reduced microphonics.

Update: The filters in the final version have more bass. Yay.

Do they have a price yet? website?

$130 for the version without mic, $150 for the version with.

Their website is: Audéo - A more intense music experience - Home

This seems to be the more active thread about the Phonaks: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f103/phonak-audeo-380799/

Thank You.

I wear Phonak hearing aid.

The last picture seems to be a BA drive mounted on its side - kind of like the TopFire drive in UE's Super.fi 5 (v.2). Interesting design, but I wonder if it will even make its way out of Europe?

Phonak seems determined to conquer the American market... their PR agency is in New York, at least.

Trying to take down the American big boys? They will need more than good luck and an interesting looking IEM for that.

Well, Jays showed that it can be done, to a certain extent.

And Phonak is already well known for their hearing aids, I assume.

Now I just wish they will come to Asia .

The removable silicon memory "wire" is indeed an excellent idea and it will match up very well with my SA6.

Anythingbutipod - Phonak Audéo PFE Review is out - they made Editor's Choice, by the way. Enjoy.

With the big announcement from Westone, I doubt Phonak will get much attention for the next few days. Will be interesting to see how thier IEM fair in the market.

Thanks for the review, dfkt.

Well, they're in a quite different price range (i.e. affordable for a lot more people, and really brilliant for that price), but of course for Head-Fiers the Westone launch will probably overshadow everything else...
