Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound great, but fragile and sometimes hard to keep in the ear, August 15, 2007
This review is from: M-Audio IE-30 Dual Driver Reference In-Ear Monitors (Electronics)
These sound great. They sound fantastic. They sound just like Ultimate Ears (because they are, rebranded.). Unfortunately, the break easily. Theres a joint where the cable meets the earbud where you can separate the 2, and it separated in the wrong place. Now its time for fun of a mail-order repair ticket.

It also took a while to find the right fit. I had to spend an extra $20 ordering a set of the foam pads as they seem to be the only ones that hold the earbuds in place. The plastic ones kept slipping out of the ear unless i sat frozen still.

The earbuds come with a soft case and a hard case. Use the hard case. Youll also want a headphone extension cable if youre going to be any more than 2 feet from the headphone jack.

Really? I've owned these for over a year and had the cable off the earbuds several times. No issues here. Sounds like operator error, to me.
