The Quads are pretty much what everyone around here says they are; simply fantastic. The lows are very nice and dig deep with great impact -- very different from any of my previous IEMs which were analytical (RE0, im716, CK10). I don't mean to say that they lack highs or that the lows cover everything, but the quads certainly have a somewhat darker presentation than the others. It took me a while to get used to them since I thought the mids were lost; but as it turns out, it's not the mids that were lost but rather I was NOW actually hearing all of the lows. All of the detail is still there and I can actually hear more texture and color of timbre than any of the other IEMs I've had. I cannot honestly say that these are a "night and day" difference in SQ (compared CK10) nor in isolation (compared to the im716). However, I CAN say that I enjoy the music a bit more now. Great in-ears and the team at 1964 are all VERY nice to speak with, and patient to answer questions and requests. Highly recommended, for sure.
*I did however find one visible flaw from the factory. Underneath the logo of the LEFT monitor, there are "scratches" or long "cracks" that appear to be beneath the logo and finish. They are somewhat inconspicuous since the monitor is purple and since it seems to be beneath the logo...but it IS there. I decided to keep it rather than send it back in just for something that small. I think they let this one "pass" the quality check since my ears were ordered with about 16 OTHER sets for my church, and 1964ears was on a time-crunch deadline. In other words, I don't think this is something they would usually approve without fixing/replacing. No bubbles or other defects that I can find.
