Here is my review of the Advanced Sound Elise: Pros: Very nice ceramic housing Excellent form factor (lies flat in ear) Good Sound for the price Cons: Thin cable not much strain relief on housing Subject to cable noise I have had the Elise for about a day now and I feel I can offer a fair review of them. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase. I was originally intrigued with the ceramic housing as this is uncommon at this price point. Furthermore, they looked like they might lie flat in the ear which makes them ideal for in bed listening. I decided for about 20 bucks to go for it. I was pleased to find out that they have a superb fit in the ear and the ceramic housing the just gorgeous. It has a substantial feel that rivals IEM's far more expensive. They even fit far better then most. They are easy to just slip into the ear and boom you are all set. No fiddling our readjusting. I have been using the foam tips that are included. They are similar to Comply's, but they seem like they will last better as they have a coating over them (kinda like the Shure Olive tips). They are not as spongy, but work very well for me. The sound on these is slightly different as they are very vocal focused. I personally enjoy this in my music as well so for me it is a great fit. For people looking for a more bass focused IEM this may not be your favorite. Having said that, it does have a nice tight bass that it quick and responsive. The quality is good, but the quantity is on the lower side. Just to clarify, it is not anemic or treble happy, simply more forward vocals and low treble. As of right now there are three things I do not like about these. The cable is the primary issue I have. The cable, especially the one connecting to the housing, is very thin and not much strain relief. It is a shame that such a well made housing is then connected with a sub-par cable. If this headphone breaks I would bet it is the connection to the housing that will fail first. For comparison, I also have a pair of Fiio F1's which are even cheaper, but have a far superior cable that also prevent tangling. I can tell you the Elise can get pretty tangled. I will say, Advanced Sound does offer a 3-year warranty for these, so they must be confident in their design, however time will tell. In addition to the thin cable, it is also subject to cable noise. The Elise does not come with a cable clip which generally prevent lots of the cable noise. Lucky for me I have a few spares around the house so I attached one of those. Without one it was annoying as walking caused a far amount of noise. Summary: These IEM's are good for the price point (either here on Massdrop or from Advanced Sound) and I think are simple yet very sleek. They look like polished pebbles, which is far more attractive then the cheap plastic on my IEM's at this price point. These would be 5-stars for me if only Advanced Sound had taken the time to offer a better cable with them. I would even pay 5-10 dollars more for a better, less microphonic cable. I am still pleased with the purchased however and easily recommend them for anyone looking to listen to audio-books, podcasts, or want a sound with less bass quantity.
