Awesome sound quality but lack of build quality
search
The unit I ordered is HEM8 and my rating only inflects to the sound quality as these earbuds are for sure sounding great but build quality is poor for its price point in my opinion. Big sound stage and precise imaging. They sounds very warm and a bit bass-ier for my taste as I personally prefer colder and analytical sound signature like the DT990 Pro but this doesn't stop me to love them because its sound signature makes them my go-to pick for my orchestral and instrumental musics. This pair offers a superior experience for my orchestral and instrumental collections that both of my DT990 Pro and MEE Audio Pinnacle P1 can't rival at all. But on the other hand, which is quite obvious, I didn't enjoy them as much as I did with my other two pair when I am listening to some more modern music genres like EDM and dubsteps. These feels very comfortable due to the housing is small and very light. Ear tips that are included in the package fits my ears and gives comfortable and good sealing but your mileage may vary. The greatest disappointment comes in the build quality. The portion of the cable that splits and leads to the earbuds are very, VERY, THIN. Every time when I pull these out I have to pay so much attention for not to apply too many force as they are too thin that I'm very confident (I know it's a weird way to say lol) that I can tear them apart with little force. Thankfully that other cable which has in-line control is a bit more legit. Still for a product that is suppose to costs $399 USD in retail I don't think this cable quality is acceptable and if there is a section for rating build quality separately I would only give 1 star out of 5 stars. Not to mention that the connectors on these earbuds are using Nuforce's proprietary design so finding a replacement cable is for sure going to be a disaster if someone is needed to. Otherwise these has been serving me good. Both earbuds are working fine and so far I haven't find any signs of driver failure over 1.5 years of owning them (ordered in March 2019). TL DR: Ordered HEM8 and it sounds great especially for instrumental and orchestral from my own experience but not my go-to pick for other genres (EDM, dubsteps). They are comfortable for me but YMMV. Build quality is poor for its price point, not recommended for outdoor activity or you will have bad time to find replacement cable because the connectors are proprietary design if you break the cable.

Happy I bought them
These got me into IEMS I heard sounds I’ve never heard before in music I’ve listened to for years. Be warned though this is a slippery slope, just as there’s always a faster car than yours there are also better iems, cables, amps..... ciem’s...... make it stop I’ll never be happy!

The sound quality is great, but there are better options at this price point or even cheaper like the Hifiman RE-600 V2.

HEM6
I've had them for most of this year and they have become my daily drivers. I almost always pick them over my bluetooth headsets (Bose Soundlink and JBL UA true wireless flash)

Fantastic IEMs
Looking forward to getting these out onstage or during a long rehearsal, but the overall sound quality beats everything I've tried under the $500. Lots of bottom end and lots of warmth and presence to the overall sound.

No complaints!
I've had the HEM6 for several months now and when I want to really enjoy my music I use these instead of any TWS earbuds I have. The amount of noise isolation that these earbuds provide was a pleasant surprise.

Sound Quality was amazing but had an issue and had to contact support
The Quality of the product and the sound was so good. I literally had a person stand behind me and was not able to listen his voice. But the final thing is my right piece was defective and was experiencing some static when i move. Finally called support and in the process of swapping the product. Hopefully everything turns out well this time.

Darshan_rv, Did you get your issue resolved? I have an issue with my right earbud as well, almost no audio, only some slight treble. I have a request in, but have not heard back in a few weeks.

Great IEMs
Really enjoying these IEMs for listening to music. Sound is refined across the spectrum. Bass is very tight without being overbearing, proving a more focused signature. If you're looking for thumping bass these are not for you.
