People are doing themselves a disservice if they aren't giving either one a shot, and at that price, I don't even register"price" when I use them. The sound...They stand alone from pricepoint and appearance. This isn't some dusty MT-300 thing like SF likes to remind us of. Not even a dusty EB-750 either.( Sf get in here and start featherdusting!) And I'm not hyping, you'd know if I was hyping.
No sweat to me if nobody bothers, I'll still have them., and spares.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I could be using the portable Stax SR-001 Mk2 or a pile of other ortho type stuff instead, but nope. These two models are too worthy.

Fun concert last night, Rock Shop Brooklyn, Valley Lodge, dive of a bar, abour 20 people there, soundstage narrow (was a small room), good powerful bass, though, imaging/vocals a bit smeared, but good "jump" factor, had fun
(videoed snippets of songs, may post but probably crappy since used my Razr Maxx and couldn't bear to video for full songs, had to bop)
^ Why doc the answer is literally right before your eyes. Dem Lethals meng like nick said is no joke and can hang with some of the best for pennies. If you don't get them Lethals soon, your wifey might get LETHAL with ya' if youknowhatimeng.
Thanks, SF, I know I can always depend on you for help.
As far as the S2's go, this may be obvious to everyone else, but, as they are semi open and don't make a real seal, they don't feel the same in the ear when they are in properly. I generally expect a really good seal to have a bit of suction, which I try not to have too much (uncomfortable), but reassures me that I'm in well. These, being semi open, shouldn't give m suction EVER (I know, DUHH).
Trying to figure out how to get the Valley Lodge video snippets from my phone to the site, different things haven't worked yet. An interesting observation is how differnt ears and microphones hear tings.I was working to gear lyrics/vocals from my spot. On my phone, in the same spot, they are pretty clear. I know that is the case, still interesting to appreciate how different they are.
Valley Lodge, maybe get the videos going...
