I've said a lot of heated things- basically, these definitely aren't worth buying.
Best of luck on clearing stock, but I kinda wish you guys could feel as burned as I am on final sales.
Let's just say every high pitched noise makes you regret the decent sound isolation and you stop using this product. It's that bad.
These have a balanced armature driver right? AFAIK BA drivers can sometimes be sensitive to the output impedance of your audio device, and they perform much better on low impedence devices.
I know this because I ran into this issue with my SONY XBA 3s, depending on what device I was listening to them with they would be very harsh.
It has not depended on the device yet..
My friend brought over production equipment so we could test that out of curiosity and the issue I speak of is with any device we'd tried.
I just wanted something I could plug into my phone and tune out. It's not good for that use. Buyers beware.
Sounds like you received a faulty earphone. These are well reviewed earphones (well it's similar to the ax35 which is well reviewed) and are known to have a neutral frequency response. I would try to find someone with a pair of these so you can compare the sound. In all honesty I have a pair and there's some sibiliance but it isn't as bad as you're describing. If you want to avoid sibiliance, I would suggest looking for headphones with dynamic drivers.
