Really smashing set of 'phones, been using them for about a year now with custom tips and grey filters.Can't recommend them highly enough, especially at such a low price.
A request for future earphones/IEM reviews: please include at least one picture of them fitted in somebody's ears!
@ChaosDefinesOrder: I'll second that and also ask for a photo of the entire cable from ear phone to jack plug so that we can see how the left and right tips are joined together. Can we also have the length of the cable included.
@ChaosDefinesOrder: I couldn't agree with you more. I love my Sennheisers, but I dislike the asymmetrical (thin) cable immensely. Along with the sound and fit of the headphones, the cable is right up there in importance. I'm looking to up grade my headphones and these are now near the top of my shopping list.@Orinj: I found the information your after. @ChaosDefinesOrder there's an in ear picture too. It's interesting to compare both reviews with regard to volume levels and comfort.http://www.anythingbutipod.com...
I'm giving up on these in-ear headphones. They start to give me ear-aches after listening for extended periods of time (Volume is kept sensible). Plus when walking, you hear the "thud" as your feet connect with the pavement. Now I realise why so many people in the street wear headphones instead...
@darkspark88: re the "thud" I presume your experience is not the same as Stuarts with regard to noise isolation? This is essential for myself who travels via train. Is the ear ache due to the shape of the headphones, or the fact that there the over the ear type? Does anyone know where you can try before you buy ie have test ones available?
@darkspark88 - Just wondering if you're using foam or silicon tips, if your IEMs came with them? I know with my Shure's if I want a comfortable fit I always use the foam tips. For some reason using silicon tips irritate my ears, and lead to the ear-aches as you've described.
