I bought these and was disappointed with the overall build and quality. I think that the mee audio M6 pros I bought was a way better buy.

If anyone's curious about E5 comparisons to Shure 215, I like the livelier sound of the E5. Deeper bass, crisp highs. More V shaped sound in the E5. They are a bit bright, perhaps too bright for some people but I think it decreases a bit with age/burn in time. The only outstanding issue I have is the fit. Since they are metal they are heavy so you'll want to get them well seated in the ear and try the various included tips for the best fit or get aftermarket tips. The other thing is the two pin cables are a challenge to find with a mic. I like having the inline controls on the cable. Sites have them but it would be nice if someplace like amazon had a selection for quick delivery & swift returns if they aren't right for you. Overall a very good value.

At 61 bucks shipped, I think it's worth joining to try out the Exclusive 5

Indeed, I was considering the Exclusive 3 but my OCD forced me to stay away from the missmatched Red->Left/Blue->Right coloring, so I had to get the E5. They're great, true bass cannons but with present mids and detailed highs.

my cable shorted after owning these for three or four months and it's very difficult to find a replacement, tfz doesn't seem to sell them. i found one on amazon made for kz headphones but they don't fit perfectly and the e5s fall out regularly. id stay away without a usable warranty

It's been about a month with Exclusive 5's and I haven't had any issues yet. They have a really good warm sound signature, which I prefer over "balanced." I've been using them as my everyday carry's and they're a big step up over the TFZ Series 2 I also got through Massdrop - they had started developing cable issues after a month or so but the cable seems of higher quality that came with the Exclusive 5's. I also have the Ostry KC07's and I can hear all the same things with both models, the Exclusive's are just more balanced to the lower end of the frequency spectrum. As long as they don't break (like I've been seeing in these comments and as I've experienced with the TFZ Series 2) then I'd say they're definitely worth the price, but be wary.

Based on build quality, these iems are not "worth it". Yes, Massdrop honored their Warranty and offered credit, but I ordered three Exclusive 5's and 2 out of 3 had issues. Think of the worst buds in the World and tell me if any have failure rates so high.
The right driver of one pair buzzed within a week. I got credit for that pair.
The second pair's cables got wrecked while another pair worked fine. Both were used lightly. Because the warranty was out, I had to salavage to cables from buzzing headphones to make 2 working headphones out of 3. But if these headphones went out to 3 different addresses, 2 out of 3 recepients are screwed.
The working headphones are nice with certain daps... but I can't think of any other consumer product in 2018 that is essentially a basket of lemons.

Ha! So even the 2nd of the 3 we have left has finally bit the dust. The left driver has developed a buzz. Funny thing is that I was recently thinking about posting a follow-up, to remark about its positives. . . because these iems have them. . . They add a little color and timbre to upper mids and treble that slightly thrashes jazz and ska. And that sizzle with a reliable bass backbone just kept me going back to them. . . but fearing that they will soon break. . . and they did. Now I want a replacement. . . but fear all TFZ's might share some tint of this lemon.

Anyone know how to use the tfz warranty? I can't figure it out. A majority of their stuff is Chinese and massdrop won't help.
There's a card in the box that says warranty card but it doesn't say what it does or how to use it.

How do the Exclusive 5s compare to the ibasso IT01 and Fiio FH1? I really like the way the 5s look.
