They sent me a preproduction pair to demo, a few months ago.

They're probably a good (and less expensive) alternative for people that like the ER-4 or q-Jays sound. But keep in mind that I only heard the prototype - I have no idea if they changed the sound in the final version.

That removable silicon memory "wire" is an excellent idea, and quite comfy. Hope they sell it separately, a lot of phones could use that silicon add-on for better around-the-ear fit and reduced microphonics.

The last picture seems to be a BA drive mounted on its side - kind of like the TopFire drive in UE's Super.fi 5 (v.2). Interesting design, but I wonder if it will even make its way out of Europe?

Trying to take down the American big boys?

They will need more than good luck and an interesting looking IEM for that.

With the big announcement from Westone, I doubt Phonak will get much attention for the next few days. Will be interesting to see how thier IEM fair in the market.

Thanks for the review, dfkt.
