I'm seriously wondering if what I got is authentic. The ear pieces are extremely flimsy. I already tore a medium/small one removing it in search of a decent seal. Normally a medium stock Klipsch piece from the X5 sealed perfectly yet I am resorting to the large flanges here in an attempt to get a good seal as I know this is the only way to get more bass. It worked but when I tested using the Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up with its defined punching bass line, I feel nothing! I hear it but nowhere near where it should be as this is a very forward bass line, has been in every other player I have listened. I read many many reviews praising the bass and how great these are for EDM but what I am hearing simply could never be satisfactory for that genre.
I wish I had asked the seller where he bought them from but hindsight is 20/20. They arrived with all the packaging although opened but they do appear near new.
I guess I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this with recessed bass and if so was there an aftermarket earpieces that sealed decently?
I'm not a bass head and was quite pleased with the X5 and the Soundmagic Hp100 especially both of which are not considered bass head sets.
Really getting frustrated with the electronics market lately with inconsistent quality becoming the norm and the damned massive fraud of Chinese copies is a huge problem. I remember a time when I could buy some that wouldn't break within a couple years let alone one and was consistent. What's worse is being Canadian means paying at least a 50% premium over our neighbours south despite our dollars strength. Ugh. Rant over. If anyone could shed light on my issue and not the rant that would be much appreciated.
