Was wondering about the sound signature on these. I personally love my etymotics, and would love to have a truly wireless option with similar sound quality. Would these come close ? Thanks.

I’m not familiar with Etymotics, but the TW5’s have an eq curve that feels warm overall with solid bottom that never feels flabby or loose or out of control. Sometimes low end over emphasis can lead to masking other frequencies, but to my ears the TW5’s don’t mask midrange content, and don’t get harsh on the top end. Hope that helps.

How’s the bass on these?

I'm with the company so this is going to sound biased, but just as someone who spends a lot of time with BeyerDynamic DT770's or AudioTechnica ATH-M50x's, the TW5's hold their own (in an IEM form factor.) The first time I heard the TW5's I couldn't believe how full and solid the low end felt. They made me hate some of my other "casual listening" headphones, especially other wireless ones.
