Reliable; wouldn't upgrade from EDC
Much like it's younger sibling, the EDC3 are really suited to my everyday use of them which includes listening to music while walking, working, and even laying down in bed. So if that's how you use your earphones, you might value the light weight and comfort that these earphones offer.
I bought the EDC3 after having owned its' predecessor, the EDC. The triple balanced-armature earphones sound better in the sense that bass is less present and doesn't loom over all other parts of what you might listen to. They both come packaged with the same cables, wires, and eartips so a lot of the value offered is taken away from those who buy both generations. I much prefer the EDC3's clearer sound over that of the bass-oriented EDC and will therefore never switch but I guess the items I got with the EDC can be used as spares.
Having come from the EDC, I think the $170 CAD I ponied up to get this upgrade isn't worth the improved sound. But alone, the EDC3 is, in my opinion, a great daily driver.
Would recommend to a friend.
