Do they stand out because they're 1/2 the price of Tenore and KC06, or do they also stand out because you also find them better?
I don't find them better in SQ but they have an unexpected full smooth capable balanced sound with some amazing bass for $25..
As I stated before the Tenors have it on them on a technical level but for enjoying your music and not missing much in sound I was very surprised how good the SHE9710 sounded.. I found myself gravitating toward the engaging sound of the SHE9710 more and more.
All of them sound great actually. I was very surprised how good the FX650 sounded as well. Guys that don't have the cash to get a FX850 will be pretty happy with the FX650.. Sure it is not as refined but it has similar sound characteristics to it's big brother in sound and sounds great out of a simple dap.
