Nice sound to use on the commute
I’ve only had these about a week but am really liking them. I don’t consider myself an expert or even novice in anything. Just someone who loves IEMs; the upfront and close sound one can experience with them. For commuting, I normally wear either Shure SE-215 or Tin HiFi T4. I like to wear different IEMs frequently, because each has its on sound signature and each fit slightly unique in the ear. ( I have other IEMs that serve other purposes for me. ) For the EDC3’s, their strength is the clarity and fullness of sound. These things are crystal clear on what you are listening to. One can easily hear the separate layers of sound as you play music or listen to something else. Where it’s easiest to pick out is when not even listening to music, but listening to tv or when gaming. Now they sound great with music as well, just with the other 2 examples, even an undiscerning ear could hear the fullness of the audio layers. I didn’t know what to expect when I purchased these so I am literally thrilled at the quality of the sound.
As others noted, you receive two cables. To be honest, when I saw each of the cables, I was underwhelmed. My first thought was those things are going to have to go. But I went ahead and left the original cable on and was slapped in the face how awesome the sound was. Beauty is definitely beyond the exterior of these cables.
As far as the shape and fit of the EDC3’s, I found they fit comfortably in my ear with no fatigue. I am a female so I have to consider the size at all times when purchasing because some earphones just do not feel comfortable very long because of a larger IEM design or I struggle to get a seal even with comply type ear tips. But these fit perfect !
Overall, I give them a 5. When I rate something I purchase, I consider the price paid. For $100, these things are fabulous.
I definitely recommend. At this price point, they make great commuter earphones because they don’t cost a fortune and they are not delicate items waiting to fall apart on you. The EDC3’s also slide into the ear quickly.
These top my other two commuter earphones. I think they are better in audio quality as well as a considerably better fit.
Glad I finally broke down and purchased them.
Would recommend to a friend.
