He's using a HTC One for a source. It's good for an Android device, but definitely not what you want to be using. I prefer my Sansa Clip+ to the HTC One I owed lol.
You're definitely right about the mids. Just unreal how close they can sound to a CIEM representation of vocals.
Excellent construction, good fit, and dynamic while retaining excellent speed.
It's a pity they're so easily forgotten.
Now if I wrote a review comparing them to the AKG k3003, the IE800, and the SE846.
Maybe that would garner some attention.
