They are EXTREMELY light, and has a nice smooth texture to them. The cable itself feels pretty solid but the plastic piece where the cable splits seems to be made out of cheap light plastic as is the 3.5mm jack. It MIGHT be made out of aluminum but i doubt it cuz it feels pretty cheap and the strain relief on the 3.5mm jack is really stiff. When the music is not on and you shake the cable you get a good amount of microphonics but when it's on you don't really notice it.
So how do they sound so far....
The subbass on these reaches DEEP, just as deep if not slightly deeper than my FXZ200s. They sound pretty transparent upon open box which is surprising. The bass is BIG and punchy but has good speed and texture to them. The lows doesn't really bleed into the rest of the sonic spectrum, mids sound a bit recessed but doesn't feel lacking at all, the highs are nicely extended without any sibilance or harshness. Despite these being bass centric they are not dark sounding, the sound is pretty balanced cuz the entire sonic spectrum is adequately presented. Take this with a grain of salt cuz these are pretty rough initial impressions.
I have a feeling ALL the corecool v2 lookalikes sounds about the same if not exactly the same. But i could be wrong though, they sound pretty impressive so far.
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!
That is exactly how my 385s sounded after the first 12 hours of burn-in; maybe Corecool V2 have some preburn?
