These are the best (read: my preferred) earbuds as of yet soundwise. Their sole real annoyance is their size, which makes them by and large impossible to wear for some, and difficult for others (me included). I’m keeping them as they sound so well that I do use them – for short sessions – every now and then in spite of that.
Very obviously mid-centric, backed by well calibrated yet un-extended basses and highs.
Sharply rolled off. Acoustic contrabbasso, to name one, is quite anemic in its lower segment.
Not elevated yet very present when callef for, it’s fast, dry, controlled, and quite punchy.
Clearly the star of the show. Forward, featuring snappy transients, and great detailing. Masterful.
Forward and quite nice, but could use more body.
Bodied, even flutey, just spectacular.
Very nicely rendered highmids and midtrebles, while sensibly rolled off thereafter. The parts that are indeed there are fast, at times even sparkly, never zingy, actually sometimes even a tad “too polite”
Airy and extended in all directions, it’s a wonder.
Voices are distributed very well on the stage, well distanced and separated
Quite significant in quantity but a feeling is left that “they could be even more” if treble had been made a tad less “polite”
Well done, although could be even sharper.
Not difficult at 113dB @32 Ohm, yet some sort of amping is recommended to let them shine.
Fit & Comfort
Not easy at all due to wider than usual housing diamater. Best anyhow worn oblique, but may be a no-go for some (check before you buy!)
Fixed, apparently reliable by annoyingly tacky and springy.
