Purchased these at the amazing price of $95cdn on a boxing day sale. Amazed with the sound right out of the box. Has bass emphasis but not overpowering where it ruins the mids or highs. Mostly in the sub 100 hz range. They are very detailed for a dynamic driver. To me these sound better then my AT M50's for mobile use. The highs are sparkly and clear and mids are great too. They are not neutral but have just enough colour to make the music nice and smooth. Great, enjoyable headphone to listen too. I highly recommend taking a listen if you like dynamics and are wanting great clarity as well in an iem.
