The price is ok IMHO for it's performance,accessories etc, there's no complaint. Remember we can enjoy 80% of GR07's sound signature for 1/3rd of GR07 price.
**Exactly, it definitely needs an amping unless we have a quality DAP/source. My SGP5",30GB classic is hard to drive them,but 120GB classic takes it up to some extent. CL DAC/AMP on 120gb is perfectly pairing but still shines better with E12. Other than that, it is a hard to find IEM at this price tag, as of now. And no worries,you will be rewarded for the extra $$ paid($13-$20?), for sure. Infact you can invest just $28 on E6 or $50 on E11 and you will realize how wise your decision was,no regrets. it's ur personal preference,you know what I mean...
Infact I've decided to preserve this,(yeah I'm not totally convinced with the cable and strain relief near the 3.5mm jack) extra baby sit while using them, to use it as my budget/mid tier IEM reference to benchmark other IEMs as it's on the Neutral side.
