Well, I've just purchased a set.
Looking to replace and upgrade my washing machined and dried SoundMagic PL50's and to complement my B&W P7 cans when out and about and listening in bed.
Really wasn't sure what to get as so many people have opinions on their fave headphones. As an indecisive, it's a mind field isn't it!!?! These are certainly not universally rated as "the best" but given many rave about them and their sound it would seem is just to my taste, I have to try these. Sadly no shop remotely close has these to demo.
I like the PL50's but highs are (now were) a touch harsh and they definitely lacked bass. Accurate, maybe, but for my tastes the bass was a bit lacklustre and with the hard highs, they certainly were not a play all day sound.
So will see. Should be hear by the end of the week.
Be interesting to hear them with my Fiio Mount Blanc amp and iPod Classic line out connection. The amp does nothing for the PL50's and any other in-ears, though work brilliantly with the P7's depending on the mastering of the CD.
It's scary to spend so much on in-ears, but reading on how huge these sound I'm very intrigued to see if £600 pounds worth of IEM's sound as good as some say.
