Steve Guttenberg, reviewing for CNET, said these were seriously lacking in detail. That might be the case if you're listening through a phone or something that doesn't have much detail. But these scale up very well, and with detailed, high-end sources,they'll give you a lot of detail. Aside from the caveat mentioned above, I think these work pretty well for most genres and are a good, all-round IEM.
Pros: Great bass, taught and punchy. Relaxed treble that is all day listenable and never harsh, though some may consider it dark sounding. Nice looking cosmetically
Cons: They WILL NOT stay in your ears. Even sitting still it is necessary to push them back into place every few minutes. I got used to it because I enjoyed the sound so much. Also the plastic surrounds cut into my ears and become uncomfortable after about 30 minutes. Again I tolerated it because they sounded so sweet. I got these Sept 29th 2014, and one ear went dead totally about March 1st 2015. Thats absurd for a 130$ pair of earbuds.
I would recommend looking elsewhere for ear buds. These sound so good but just don't have the fit or build quality.
These aren't bass heavy and have a very 'clean' enjoyable sound. They aren't hard to listen to (if that makes sense) and fit nicely in the ear. They also don't stick way out of your ear. That's important to me when I listen at night. If I fall asleep with them they don't jam into my ears and wake me up. They seem very well made. The left side cable on mine have a snag in the cloth and now the cable is exposed, but that was something I noticed when I first received them but was too lazy to exchange them, and now I like them too much to be without them. I think the snag was just something that slipped by quality control and isn't something that happens often. It's cosmetic and not really a problem--doesn't effect the sound. These are my favorite earphones and are the ones I grab 90% of the time. If you want to experience your music the way it was intended to be, these are a great choice. If you are a bass head or love your Beats headphones you won't appreciate these.
