※Tip: Be sure to go through aging process (for 150~200 hours, if you want the proper sound). Simply put, just let the music flowing out of your IEMs for a few days.
This process was recomended by the manufacturer, Final. Final had mentioned that they do not know the exactly why, but E2000/E3000 IEMs sounded closest to the intended sound after 150~200 hours of this process.
I actually found myself more satisfied with the sound after a week. Sound was more clear.

Awesome quality. Sound-to-price ratio is great.
I bought this IEM for 60 dollars in a local store, and it was still satisfying. I think E2000 sounds better than E3000, as E3000 sounds a bit artificial.
Great Accessories(Satisfying Eartips, comfortable ear guide. I didn't like the case though.) Great sound compared to price. Unit size is small, and therefore fits nicely Quite durable.

I wish it was a the model with the mic as it would have been a nice gift to give someone.

I don't see how anyone would not really, really enjoy these for the price paid. I just don't. Personally, I like the black more than the silver offered here.
They will run fine off a cellphone but I think you'd want some amplification to let these really shine. They can take quite a bit of it, too...

I've got a pair of E2000 (black with mic) and they're way beyond worth the money. I haven't been able to find anything close to their sound quality at the price point, either. They run pretty easily off my phone, not sure why others are having issues. They're 16 ohms and have a high sensitivity, making them easy to run off of anything with a 3.5mm plug.
They seem a little bit flatter than their side-grade brother E3000, and are easy to listen to. For $35, they're 130% worth grabbing and finding out for yourself.

As a hardcore flat-response audiophile, these are exceptional. Can't compete with my Audio Technica M20X in term of response, but that is to be expected from a 6mm driver (Final Audio E2000) compare to the 40mm driver (Audio Technica ATH-M20X).
In term of build quality I say it is very detailed, but may look not be durable, though it is. Wire had been snatched a few times from getting caught and I had done a stress test by pulling the earphone out from the ear (do not recommend you trying this). Everything is fine. The wire is supported to the aluminum casing by some plastic piece that is holding on the wire (the more you know).
For under $50 IEM earphone, these outshine most. For me, it is an above average earphone. The frequency is aimed toward the mid-bass and the vocal (according to the frequency response chart on Google search) in which is great for listening most genre. But if Final Audio decide to ask for a change in frequency target, I said it would be slightly increasing the mid-range, but not the vocal and bumping down a couple decibal from the mid-bass section. The bass is perfect and very realistic, the vocal is slightly muffled by the mid-bass compared to my Audio Technica ATH-M20X, but when you talk about portability these make the Audio Techica ATH-M20X fall flat to its face.

I've got a pair of HD 598, and owned MDR-7506 before my dogs ate them. They M20X is far from flat, and Audio Technica is notorious for bloated bass/mid-bass is what I mean to say. Not trying to put you down though. I guess they could be considered audiophile grade, but the Beats Studio are not audiophile at all. I think you should double check the M50x and M20x frequency responses though, they've got tons of bloat on mid-bass!
For myself, I'm not a fan of AT 'phones but I know tons of people are, they're just not close to flat, however. That's all :)

I'm not going to say much since you have own a pair of Sennheiser HD 598 and must know the knowledge of being an audiophile. This putting aside, I respect your response and I'm not trying to bring hate to this controversial topic. :) :) :) :)

Of course I found out about these last week. And immediately bought a pair...
Initially I thought people were over-heavy with the praise, but after switching to the smallest included tips (not a size that works for me with other IEMs), the previously non-existing bass appeared, now outlining the entire range.
Bright is a good descriptor here. There is an area of treble reproduction with a serious hotspot if a track happens to be mastered with a forward item (usually a synth/sample) in the area.
Other than that, these headphones are *incredible*.
They remind me of my Sennheiser HD 580/650’s, with fine detail, great retrieval, reference reproduction of bass elements and terrific general balance overall (the mentioned treble hotspot aside). Even with the bright treble, it rarely crosses to harshness, instead lending itself to additional clarity & detail retrieval. They aren’t perfect, but at less than $45 (or $35 as here), they’re no doubt as close as you can get for that small sum.
You cannot go wrong with these if you’re an audiophile, or just someone who loves music and isn’t a tweaker (OG speak: a junkie for artificial song manipulation with a wide-band EQ) or bass-head (same, with bass).
The price to performance on these is ridiculous. I’d recommend buying several pairs since the cable system is dainty and accidents can happen with such small portable ‘phones. And don’t forget to *fit your tips*! I run mine with a TROND Bluetooth 4.1 receiver/transmitter (10-12hr battery life), keeping the TROND in a front pocket and my phone wherever in the near vicinity. Run the cable under my shirt, gently looped through my collar buttons to facilitate removing them to converse with someone, then replace them. Using a BT unit gives you the same controls (volume adjustmen, track repeat & skipping fire & aft) missing from the 2000’s cable design.
(BONUS TIP: Despite being low impedance (anything will drive them), these phones benefit extremely well from clean amplification!)

Agreed. I found these really shine with some amplification. These were my first purchase coming into the headphone world. Love these more then the PortaProX and the M40X. Tho, I just got the Audio Technicas so I'd like more time with them...

Ah, great starter in the FA 2000’s. Be careful with the handling on them, my first pair lasted 4 months before the front portion of housing that holds the earpiece came apart, one side at a time. They can be (very carefully) glued, but one of mine came loose again in transit and was lost. They’re not very sturdy, of course that’s somewhat apparent in their being so dainty. Also, the cord will start to harden up with regular 2.5-3” reeling up. Now... do yourself a HUGE favor. Hit Amazon and pick up a set of Beyerdynamic ‘Byron’ (wired) IEMs. They were originally $250 @ launch years ago (I believe $250 was probably a bit high), but are now (a ridiculously low) $35. While you’re there, pick up a set of Comply Comfort+ ‘500’ tips to get the best seal with them. After you try them, you might want to get a set (dif. size, likely ‘200’ but double check) for the 2000’s. These are outstanding... I recommend them with no reservations whatsoever. Where the 2000’s are bright, these are pretty well balanced with outstanding bass performance. If you can accuse them of anything, it’s possibly being a bit flat of response, more formal, subdued... in reference style. They will walk you through where a recording may have benefitted from different (better!) mastering, as well as demonstrate the popular ‘style’ of recording for any particular genre around that album’s birthday. Like most well damped headphones, they need to be amped to really stretch their legs. Doesn’t have to be a crazy, they’re just high enough impedance (@ 32 ohms I think). They’re very sturdily built, and have inline volume/play-pause controls. If you decide to keep the faith and pick them up, let me know what you think. I promise... you won’t be disappointed.

I received this e2000s, and I used have a zero audio carbo tenore, this e2000s is very hard to push by cellphone. and sound is little dark than zero audio carbo tenore.

How do these square up against the RHA s500i's? Solid set but they lack in the mids. Are these a fuller sound?

I already own a pair of E3000, so don't think I would need another pair that sounds similar then. Thank you!

It took me 3 trips to the audio section to finally bite the bullet and pick one LOL! They're both great and initially I was for the E3000 but ultimately chose E2000 and am happy.
