I just picked up a pair of these, and honestly I'm disappointed. I've put some hours into listening on them, and they just sound kind of muddy. Its strange, because you can pick out the notes and detail, but I think the bass is so loose that it kind of washes over the rest of the sound. Led Zep/Hendrix type of music seems to play best on these IMO.
I usually choose earbuds in the $100 category (A-jays 5s now) but wanted to try something more visible for the office (so people interrupt me less often at work).
SOOOO they're going back. I demo'd the B&W P5 at the apple store, and thought those were an improvement. In my quick review, I thought it was easier to pick out detail, and even though there was ample bass, it did not seem to subsume the mids and highs like the momentums did.
Anyway, I wanted to know what else you all recommend. These will be mostly for work so open back is out. A mic is ideal for meetings, and sound wise, I guess I skew towards accuracy and soundstage over boomy bass.
Thanks for Reading,
