    First, I would like to thank Rocky from Dunu for choosing me to review these earphones.
    Basically, there was a contest to review these earphones here:

    Intial impressions

    First thing that came to mind is that the box and the accesories that came with tis earphone is awesome for something at the 30$ price range.

    It came with the following:
    - Earphones
    - 2 Cases
        1x Semi hard
        1x Pleather
    - 1/4inch adapter
    - Airline adpater
    - Lots of buds
    - Shirt clip
    - Cleaning cloth

    For 30$ you are getting more that what you would expect.
    But the sound was horrible out of the box, which was the downside. Reccesed mids, Highs that arent high and not much low end punch.

    After burning in

    So after burning in the earphones with pink and white noise for about 20-30 hours, my impressions about the sound has changed a lot.

    Bass
    The bass have become tight and powerful but not overwhelming. Something close the the Monster Turbines, which i liked a lot.

    Mids
    They are still reccesed but not at bad as they were, intially. Vocals sound a little far, but for genres like Dub-Step, i didnt really matter.

    Highs
    The Highs werent that good, even after burn in, but was better that it sounded at the start. The highs feel un-natural and getting stuck at a certain frequency.

    Soundstage
    Dont expect to much from something at this price range. The sound is kidna ringing in your ears and not in your head. but I guess it sound more precise.

    Conclusion
    For 69$, I think these earphones are great.
    The housing is metal so it feels sturdy and it comes with accesories that you would expect in a 50$ or more earphones.
    Overall score is 7/10!
