Unimpressive sound. Not for casual listening
The sound is thin, flat and lifeless. When listening to familiar tones with these, significant part is missing out. I am not comparing them with over ear headsets like my HD650, they can not even beat my wife's Samsung earbuds for $20. Only thing stand out is the build quality, but it is not the point of a pair of IEM.
(EDIT) One more thing, I cannot get them to fit with any of the tips provided. Yes they can be pushed into ear canals but won't stay put for me, and it is the first IME that does not fit for me (I tried Etymotic ER4SE, KZ ZS 10 Pro, Fiio FH3). This may played a role in its mediocre sound quality, but not much.
Another thing, I realize some IEM are meant for musicians, the goal is accuracy rather than pleasing sound. These pair may have different usage than what I was expecting. That said, I am sure these are not good for casual listening, and no EQ tuning can compensate their drawbacks.
Would not recommend to a friend.
I wonder if both of us received defective pairs. I ordered 3 beginning of August; they arrived end of August. They sounded very, very bad. Basically obviously defective, though I had doubts as all 3 of them sounded like this.
Sent them back. Today, received my brand new threesome. I think that they sound pretty obviously better, but there is still something wrong about them, and wrong in more or less the same way.
To describe the sound: Sounds harsh, etched, grainy, rough. Sometimes you can definitely hear what I would call "pieces of sound" colliding with each other in a dys-synchronous way. When passages get very busy, this is when these effects are most obvious. When a passage is simple, such as just an accoustic guitar or one violin part playing, this is very much so less obvious, though something doesn't sound quite right, and if you listen a bit closer, you can make out some harshness not too far from the surface.
Think I'm gunna copy this above description of the sound into my review (writing that in a moment's time).
