The first thing you'll notice in researching the Phiaton PS210s is that their design is unique -- so unique that they won the prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award, beating companies like Audio-Technica and BMW in the process. They're probably the only "half-in-ear" monitors you've ever heard of.

The second thing you'll discover is that their design has a specific purpose -- one that is completely different from that of other IEMs. They are designed to be *non-isolating*, so that you can hear other sounds in the room, and to be positioned just *outside* the ear, for people who don't like the sensation of having their ear canals violated.

People might not realize this, but those are two of the most commonly heard complaints about modern IEMs: That they blot out everything and feel annoying when inserted. A third complaint is that their soundstage is often small and dry, like a damped-out soundproofed room in a recording studio.

Enter the airy PS210s. When you wear them, you can still hear people talking to you, and you don't feel as if your earphones are a little too happy to see you. But in addition to that, their sound is airy and wide -- perfect for the glistening violins and flutes in classical music, and for the shimmer of snare drums. I've listened to the PS 210 back-to-back with the UE Triple.Fi 10 (which costs hundreds of dollars more), and while the overall frequency range of the 210 is narrower and the differentiation between instruments slightly more congested, there's an undeniable excitement to the high end -- to the sound of unison vibratos in a string ensemble -- that you don't even get from more expensive earphones with triple armatures.

If you buy these hoping for more isolation, warmer mids and deeper bass, you'll be disappointed.

This is a "first impressions" review, straight out of the box. I was looking for a decent portable pair of phones, and decided to look for good IEM values. My first choice was the Shure SE110K, and those arrived with one of the phones DOA, and I didn't take another chance on them. I'm glad that happened, as these Phiaton things are just wonderful!
To start, I see the negative reviews complain of the lack of isolation, and that is completely true. If you are looking for something to drown out people in the cubicles next to you, look elsewhere. If, however, you are looking for the best sound at a killer price, this may be the way to go! I am passionate about my sound, but wouldn't label myself an audiophile, as most of the time those end up being folks who care and know a lot about equipment and not much about the music. Musicophile might be better.
Plugged straight into the iPod classic, these give you an "OMG I gotta stop and listen" impression. The sound is good enough to distract you from working, if you loaded the iPod with good lossless files... I can't wait for my new headphone amp to see how much the sound improves.
On Leon Fleisher's "Two Hands" album, the sound of the piano is as organic as you will get with IEMs, immediate and involving. On "Raising Sand", Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' voices are natural and nicely spread in the virtual studio space, and the band sounds great. The bass is plenty. I can see that they would do better with a small amp, like the Bithead (which I ordered for this). Even without an amp, they are great, without any break in.
The ear piece is perfect for my ears. I can cycle through some of the bud size options, but the second to smallest just plopped into the ear canal and feels completely natural so far.

the Phiaton PS210 is what's a called a 'half in-ear' design. The earphone itself is designed more like an earbud and the driver sits completely outside the ear canal. What this means is that the PS210 doesn't feel as 'intrusive' as many true in-ear monitors and doesn't give that sealed-off-from-the-outside-world feeling. Isolation suffers as a result - it's fine for a park or quiet street but wear these on a plane and you will have to turn up the volume, though not as much as with conventional earbuds.

Aside from isolation, the PS210 is fairly typical of in-ears in its price range. It comes with four sizes of silicone tips and a cool, though hardly pocketable, cylindrical carrying case. Packaging is also quite handsome and these could definitely be given as a gift. The shells are made out of metal and hard plastic. They are quite heavy but not nearly as bad as those of the Pioneer SE-CLX50, which is another half in-ear model. Comfort is good if you have large enough ears - the ergonomics are well thought-out. Cable noise is a very minor issue during intense physical activity and not a problem otherwise.

As for the sound, it is very refined and controlled. The bass is tight and well-defined - not very rumbly or impactful but the quality and accuracy are great. It is quick, delicate, and boasts realistic attack and decay. The midrange is quite clear, with decent detailing but not much texture, resulting in a very smooth and quite transparent sound. 'Sweet' is a good word. The treble is also very smooth and quite well-resolved - detailed enough to keep up with some of the better sub-$100 earphones but never sharp or aggressive. Softness is really a recurring theme of the PS210's presentation. The soundstage is fairly wide and has good depth of positioning and excellent air.
