Purchase Date: May 2010
Purchase Price: £18

I had bought these earphones when they were on a deal on paly.com.
These had nice mids and nice highs, but the bass extension and punch was completely lacking. I found the bass lacked any sort of punch -> its great for classical music, put it that way.

-They have a good sense of music separation / You can hear different sounds coming from different palces
-Clarity is good
-Good fit, and good noise isolation/good array of tips provided (comply’s are provided)
-They bring the vocals/instruments -> mids forwards, so you can hear more of the vocals

-Not worth £30+, in my opinion. Possibly £20-25
-They are cold phones on the ears, as they have a metal housing
-Bit over the top packaging for nothing
-Have a purple tint to them. Good for girls, maybe not as “liked” for for guys
-Straight 3.5mm jack
-Bass response

Sound Quality Ratings
Lows: 5/10
Mids: 7/10
Highs: 6.5/10
Soundstage: 5.5/10

They are very nice earphones, very comfortable, and have good wiring. The balanced armature driver inside the housing also provides you with a good sound. They also will not require burn-in to become better, so to speak. I would not recommend these for any bass lovers. They lack that bass punch.
