"Horrbile, this trend needs to end. And im pointing the finger at you mee pinnacle, Dita answer and IE800. Single drivers for 800 dollars ? Blashphemy !"
 
It sounds really ironic and funny actually but this one is not: "Exactly 38 usd for a dynamic driver ? This is so over priced. China is starting to follow the trends of western brands puttinf high price tags on single dynamic drivers."
 
I think that's real hahah!

That's why instead of shooting higher, I'm shooting sense.....sense on a budget!

PS, I rather trust my sense of hearing, to get a sense of low price.

i second this. Many a times people look at drivers count and determine if its worth it.

You seem to be in a TINY Minority here. Most think these are great Earphones. Definitely NOT useless. Although I don't listen to much Metal.
 
Maybe it's your source.

TWIN

They're good but not great unless you're basshead, they're too unbalanced, if you're coming from bassy or warm&sweet earphones, the gap in bass quantity is not too much, if you're more into balanced or worse, bright signature, Easy UEs are not for you.
I've been doing some long listening with flat earphones (Ety MC5) to reset my brain

, to be sure my previous IEMs had not to much influence.
 
  I said useless for any heavier music, not everything. I've compared the sound with my iPhone 5 and the Realtek ALC892 integrated into my PC's motherboard and the hissy, unpleasant mid is noticeable on every one of them. 
 
 
I've had multiple iems from Brainwavz and a pair of KZ's (ED10, and some other ones) before that. None of them had that unpleasantly sounding guitars like the UEs. Just my personal opinion.

Iphone 5 output impedance (4-5 ohm), and I guess ALC892, is not the best with low impedance earphones, with a risk of frequency variations, they're better for portable headphones or big impedance IEMs (>=32-40 ohm).
I have no problem with guitar, I just tried Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child (Slight Return).
