These are without a doubt the worst sounding earphones I've ever heard in my entire life, including all phone pack-ins and $10 bargain bins. There is simply nothing redeeming to be said of their sound quality. You remember when cell phones first came out in the 90's, and some of the "fancy" ones would have some shitty earphone as an accessory so that you could hear your phone calls in some garbled output that barely represented the voice on the other end? The T3's are kind of like that, except with less bass. TIN is the absolute PERFECT name for this company, because their earphones sound so tinny and piercing it is grating and irritating beyond being listenable. I can't fathom a single genre or style of music for which these would be considered even remotely interesting or desirable. For all the Head-Fi bros that claim to represent the "audiophile community", this single earphone has made me lose what little respect I had for them. "Accurate highs and nice soundstage" and blah blah doesn't mean shit when we get down to one simple fact: the sound of these earphones are garbage, and although I'll never take them out of their box again in my life, I wouldn't even feel comfortable selling them because I'd feel guilty for ripping off the buyer. The cable is actually pretty decent, so the only real benefit I can see from these aural abominations is for me to hang myself with the cable when I inevitably commit suicide due to my continued loss in faith in humanity, likely to coincide with the release of the Tin T4's, which I pray doesn't happen.
