Good value for money

Pros: Dynamic sound, dynamic bass

Cons: Prone to bloating, overall lack of detail, mine broke apart

Indeed, resolution is very good even for the mids, but the signature is very minded to the broader population, which means that unplugged, choir-works, jazz and classical, will sound too fullfilling.
