EchoBox Audio Finder X1 IEM I like them. I think they are very good earphones for the price. I love the Bass. It remands me of car stereos!, but it is a bit too bright and it can hurt your ears with songs that are too mid \ high oriented. The fit is Ok. Being able to change a little the tune is a plus, but it can take time and patience to change the filters. They can be driven with any mobile phone (I tested them with IPhone 6, Samsung S8), but sound better with a DAC\Amp (I use an AudioEngine HD3 (PC) and Mojo (Phones)). Bass: Very Good Mid: Too Bright but still OK Highs: Too bright but still Ok Soundstage: Good. The best I have heard of an earbugs. Clarity: Very good Build Quality: Very good. They are my gardening earphones. Since I used several earphones, I cannot say that I have given them enough use to judge their longevity. Fit: So so. Take your time picking the best tips for you.  Comparation: They are as good as the Shure 215, but with much better bass. No as good as the Shure 846, but 10 times cheaper! I will have to update this section, since this is the first earphones that I have taken the time to review.   Music to test the earphones (all music from Spotify high quality): Bass: Low and My House (Flo Rida), Lose Yourself to Dance (Daft Punk) Mid: Until the End and Lovers (Shigeru Umebayashi) Soundstage: I Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd), Nocturenes Op9:No 2 in E flat (Chopin) Clarity: Keith Don’t Go (Nils Lofgren), The Echo Game (Shigeru Umebayashi)

Pleasantly surprised. Agree with a couple other commenters that the bass was heavy out of the box, but I'd much rather that than too light and have to *gasp* apply any boost. The neutral filter inserts helped smooth the bump out and after several weeks of listening and break-in I'm quite happy. They're very detailed, and I wouldn't say they're overly bright or fatiguing. That said, I have 50-yr old ears and my natural filtering likely attenuates the top end a bit so YMMV. Build quality is quite good for the price point, and the anti-tangle cables work surprisingly well with very few microphonics traveling up and down the cable. A shirt clip would have been nice since they're a bit more heavy/rigid than generic cables and I can feel them as they move around, but that's a minor complaint. Found a good seal with the included ear pieces as well. Overall very happy.

I'll keep this simple, bass is nice and tight but not heavy, so I wouldn't recommend these for bass heads. The mids are nicely present and clear. The highs, wow, this is where it shines, it can reach highs like you wouldn't believe and its crisp too, to some people it might sound tinny, but I've never found this to be the case. I've used ipod touch 5th gen, fiio x3 and m9, creative soundblaster x7, Huawei P20 pro. If you like highs, and a clean sounding headphone, you might like these. And if you find it tinny, try a portable amp like a toppings nx1s, makes the sound a bit neutral and a little warm, theres also the bass gain too, equilizing also can do wonders.

After reading your experience I'm "NOT" going to recommend these to you. This was hard for me to say cause I absolutely love these iems, and would say they are on par in quality and sound and would of liked to recommend them. If you're a collector I'd have said yes. WHY, from what I understand the sound signature might lean more away from what you are looking for, the exclusives balance and wholsomeness is not there in the x1's though the x1's have the clarity is more revealing which let's you pick out sounds. the QT2's I've heard, and it wasn't to my liking either, but from memory the mid highs to highs were present similarly to the x1's but not of the same quality. Hope that helps :)

Last night I was ready to buy the Finders but decided to wait. Two things happened today to complicate matters. Your reply was one and the KZ AS10 IEM with 5 B.A. drivers offered today by massdrop ($50) was the other. However, I question the KZ because of my experience with the QT2's. Maybe these inexpensive multiple driver iems aren't what they're cracked up to be (if something seems to be too good to be true................................). I don't consider myself a collector even though I own at least 20 iems (I haven't actually counted them.......many are stored away and haven't been used in years). I'm probably just looking for my holy grail. I understand your reasoning for not recommending the Finders........... I didn't like the QT2 which are more similar to the Finders than the TFZs . However, you also didn't care for the QT2, but you still like the Finder. I think that I might be trying to convince myself into buying them. The drop is ending soon, and I think that it'll be either the Finders or the KZs ...........looking for something to break the tie.

Unbelivable good product for the price
Finders deliver great resolution and detail if feed from high quality source. Doesn't sound good with high output impedance sources - bass becomes mudy and boomy affecting entire frequecy range, clarity and detail disappear, sound signature beomes ugly. Even if the amp is good, like Beyerdynamic A20 but impedance is high (A20 has 100 ohms), they will sound awful. It will not work with some smartphones but most DAPs, DACs and headamps will do excellent job with Finders and alow them to shine. Resolution is incredible for the price and even 5x it's price, no armature-driver dryness of highs quiet background (unbelivable at this price), very good separation of instruments. Sound is V-shaped with pretty loud highs with any filter but highs are airy, not sibilant, enjoyable and fun to listen. Ammount and quality of bass can be controlled with filters, though source affects bass and low mids sound much noticeably than filters. Sounds better than many $200+ IEMs if your source can drive them properly.

Nice packaging, Horrible fit, merely so-so sound.
Such a disappointment. Shame on Drop for showing a wildly inflated msrp (I believe over $200) when amazon has them shipping for 26 on prime with free returns. Not my cup of tea from a sound and fit perspective though I will grant you that fit is entirely subjective. I don't see myself ever using these except when I cant find my regulars. You might say for $25 I shouldn't complain too much, but I much prefer my $10 TCLs to these, let alone some of my more expensive sets. Also - now for no reason they are $22 on the next drop. Only 3 dollars, but are we just plucking these prices out of thin air? Would not recommend. Edit: I have read the other negative comments, and some seem a little aggressive. Im happy to expand on my thoughts if Josh or anyone else would like to know more, or for example what I use as reference etc. I want to like this a lot, as clearly some solid thought has gone into the product, design and packaging. It just isn't enough to overcome the importance of sound and comfort.

Does are one of the worst hdphones I ever had. The sound quality is crap!! It's like you are listening through the phone's speaker. Friendly advice don't buy 'em.

Too tinny for me. Lack warmth. Very bright and exact with fast attack. Maybe I need to try different earpieces as suggested below.

I see what you did there with your name. How clever you are to yourself. How many negative posts do you have here? Just post your feelings and let others post theirs. Your one man vendetta against echobox is bordering on creepy.

Excellent appearance and sound
Half a day fiddling with headphones, change the filter and tips, then left overnight to warm them. Today it is a very different result - sounds excellent! Hopefully in two days will be even better :) --- P.S. Silver filters and memory foam tips from Comply™
