I'm actually quite surprised by these after the negativity that happened here. Sure, all people hear differently, we like our EQs different, we listen to different music, but really? These are very capable IEMs. I got them to replace some Skullcandy (yeah, I know, they were a present a long while back) Titans which were very unrefined and bloated. These let me hear much more detail in the music - the mids feel a *little* recessed for me (but I love a mid-centric sound for my Rock music), but all that needs is a little boost in EQ, imo. I let these burn in for a while before trying them and I let them burn in whenever I can. The bass is very present, but I don't find it overly boomy or anything. They seem to be taming in the treble and bass regions as they get more play, too.
I didn't buy these based on reviews - I bought them based on the fact that I was making a small order from Mp4Nation anyway, they were a good price, dual dynamic driver (which I hadn't tried before) and because I needed some new IEMs to go jogging with. When I saw the complaints on this thread, I was certainly a little concerned about my choice. I think people kind of have to put it in perspective. I can understand being super disappointed because of expensive headphones and IEMs not sounding the way you would have liked, but this? Come on, just EQ it to fit your tastes more. They're capable IEMs, so they can take to EQ adjustments quite well.
I must say the fit has been a bit of a problem for me. My right ear just does not like anything but the comply tips. I've tried different sizes, put in earplug foam to create some sort of "hybrid" tips, but it doesn't work well for me. I love the comply tips, sure, I even appreciate that they take a bit of edge off of the treble (I'm sensitive to it), but they're just so darn expensive to keep replacing. I'm considering some Shure olives, but I've never used them before and kind of worry that they're not as comfortable and squishy as the comply tips.
I would personally highly recommend these, I think they sound great and are decently made for the price.
