Great price, decent sound
-Using with iPhone7 thru Fiio i1 amp, with MusicStreamer primarily
It seems like we've all accepted that, since these are made in China, at a bargain price, there will be some strange issues, and I'm no different. Right out of the box, I noticed that the red/blue rings were switched. Not a big deal, and I haven't seen any other issues so far.
Presentation was way nicer than expected at this price point, with a really handsome book-style box.
The set comes with three types of tips, with a range of fits and feels. My favorite at this point is the blue foam tips. They feels very comfortable, creating little fatigue. I also think they provide the best, most complete sound. The problem is that I'm not getting a great fit in my left ear, and the monitor occasionally slips out. I chalk this up to personal ear shape, but it is an issue for me.
The clear silicon tips give a more secure fit, but I lose a lot of low end when using them.
The sound is really great at this price point. I was totally surprised at how clear and detailed these things sound, and I've really enjoyed testing them out with my reference albums.
I do find them weak on the low end, and would really like more bass. That said, my desk headphones are a pair of ATH-M50x, so I'm sure that I'm conditioned to expect a lot from the low end.
My conclusion is that these give you a ton of value for the price. The solid build makes them a good choice for a commuting set, and the sound and low price make them a lot of fun to play with for anyone with a little extra pocket change.
Would recommend to a friend.
