    "too much detail"
    Pros - analitical, cheep
    Cons - harsh, fatiguing listening
    For my taste are too analitical cans.I try to remove the  high frequencies sibiling using several different tips...shure triple  compy foam....nothing they remain too harsh for my tasty.
    I also try using Little dot I+ and 30ohm resistore...They have no musicality ...better Titan 1 or Beyerdynamic 102

    "Still My Favorites "
    Pros - Detailed Hifi sound. Excellent instrument separation, exceptional soundstage, very light. Sounds incredible with indie, alternative, jazz, rock
    Cons - Tips included are not the best. Bass is lacking in quantity (not quality!)
    Since 2011 when I first discovered this site, I've experimented with quite a few low/mid-tier earphones and these are my favorite by far. I prefer them over my Vsonic Gr06, Vsonic VC1000, and Yahama EPH-100. The only real problem I have with them is the lack of bass impact. (If you listen to mainly Hip-Hop/EDM, take a look at the yamahas for a similar price). Albums such as Dr. Dre's The Chronic, Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein, any ATCQ still sounds amazing. Take a look at Shure Comply P-Series foam tips or Etymotic triple-flange tips as the included tips may not provide the perfect seal. For the price, I would absolutely reccomend to a friend.

    "Piercing noises diminish the value of great soundstage."
    Pros - Very open for IEMs. Clarity. Soundstage is actually massive. Comfort.
    Cons - Treble is very harsh.
    The treble is pretty overwhelming on these guys.  I usually EQ the top band down a couple of dBs.  But the soundstage is pretty crazy for an IEM (in my limited experience).  I had bass problems with these things for the longest time, but I finally found some tips that do the pieces justice.  I'm using the Shure Flex series.  The foams just didn't do it for me.
     
    I will say, I think my right earpiece is quieter than the left, which is discouraging.  I've tried switching sides to verify the problem, and I think it's definitely the headphone volume.
     
    For design, I would definitely prefer an L shaped plug, but it's okay.  The Y split seems sturdy enough, and I actually like the memory wire.
     
    Overall, they are a little harsh, and can give me a headache sometimes.  I tend to prefer a more smooth sound, but I can't knock the tremendous imaging.  I hear things on these all the time that I can't hear with my Audio Technica M-50s.
