Excellent sound quality for me with black nozzle and semi-open.
Width of nozzles is a little big for me. I need to use SPIN-FIT to fix earbuds on my ears. Others are really good for me. Really enjoy the sound

The company name was Trinity Audio. Long story short they scammed and lied and ran off with a lot of people's money. It all happened to Head-Fi users and others. They took all that money and started a new company under IMR. https://youtu.be/l1h_XMouV7Q

My biggest disappointment with an audiophile product on Drop. These are hugely overpriced at $350 (my drop price) based on sound quality alone, even disregarding the ethical issues. While the soundstage is remarkable, detail retrieval and instrument separation is mediocre to subpar. The sound is congested, as if the instruments are drowning each other. I'm using the supplied balanced cable on a DAP, listening to heavy metal and tried all the filters (with pink/neutral sounding marginally better). Spent some time in denial forcing myself to use them thinking "I must have missed something last time, a $350 IEM cannot sound this bad", but no, each time the realization that I've just been served audio snake oil arrived without a doubt twenty minutes into the listening session. I much prefer BGVP DMG and Whizzer Kylin to these IMRs, which should be priced below $100 in comparison. Build quality is high, so I'm giving two stars instead of one.

I dont know much, but from what I heard. The owner of IMR had a company before this one called Trinity Audio, they went on Kickstarter promising a 'game changer' IEM. 1000s bought into it, but no one received anything (classic Kickstarter). They said they were 'in development' and behind schedule, but I dont believe that.

Good sound but heavy and hard to place in ear
Case is too big and can't fit in a pocket + it's not that safe Filter are great to find the sound I'm used to

Excellent across many parameters
Everything about this product reflected well on the manufacturer and the actual listening experience. I own several different Sennheiser products because I have always liked their design and execution, both functionally and aurally. These are the first IEMs I have purchased and I drive them with a Yulong DA9 (balanced), MacPro Tower, and lossless files. I have eclectic tastes in music so I have listened to everything from Barber to Fripp to Stravinsky to Shorter to Hoey to you get the picture. The build quality and included accessories are exemplary. The filters make a difference. Flatter is better where you would expect it as is phatter where you expect it. They drive decently from an iPhone, especially with a kludged portable Groove setup with lossless files. But they shine using the balanced cable with the DA9. The cables suit me fine with with the exception of the fact that they are one meter too short. The sound stage is not massive; you sense that the music is happening around your head as opposed to around your person. Tuned to the source, reproduction is faithful but not pristine. They are not going to replace my 800S headphones. They are going to steal about 50% of the time I might spend listening to my 660S headphones, though. They are comfortable and sound very good and have the benefit of providing a way to shape the sound to Level 42 as well as Joe Pass.

I'm fully aware of just how little you know, because if you know the actual wrongdoings this man is responsible of you would not defend the latest iteration of Bob's misdemeanors. So it's a good thing you wont respond any further. See you in three years when you are not a Bob fanboy anymore.

The only thing you stated that was correct is two different companies. There is no disputing that. However Bob (of IMR) was attached to Trinity, and according to the filing of the company it (Trinity) was in his wife's name. I'm sure you can put 2 and 2 together on your own.
