comment
" ...  - Sounds great: Sharp Highs and decent lows (see cons). ... - The bass isnt going to blow you away but it doesn't take away from the quality. ... They aren't audiophile quality, nor do they have the same lows as my Sennheisers, but you're working out it these.  ...  "

comment

comment
" ...  This is above and beyond what I expected in audio quality, even with the overall sound signature bass boosted as you would expect with a sport audio product. ... I've never spent this little on an earbud and had this well tuned of a sound, and if you need less bass it could be equalized.  ...  "
