Got my A151 2nd Gen today. For the money they sound pretty good. Good clarity and fairly balanced. They actually sounded a bit better than I expected. Bass it mostly neutral, but just a bit north of neutral. Mids are decent. The highs are nice, but slightly rolled off to my ear. They don't sparkle but should make for fatigue free listening. These are not for those that want BIG bass, but I think it's pleasing enough.
They actually fit in my ears well, something I usually have issues with. I think their a good way to introduce someone to hi quality audio without spending hundreds.
I have a few much higher end earphones, so these will likely end up as gift for someone.
Have you tried driving them with an amp to bring out the highs? I know they are "32Ω" and shouldn't need one but I found it necessary to get the detail/sparkle in the highs. It's there, but you have to have plenty of available output power to bring it out.
