Tanzim, London Music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The best headphones I've used though I haven't used the hi-end Audio monitors. The Treble is near perfect.
there is lack of bass in techno and trance...and low freq bass can be a sometimes mushy....but its still very good for this price range. for the best results use files over 192kbps. though these are not noise isolating earphones still they do a very good job. It isolates about 80% of the outside noise.
Bad points:
Because of the driver is too big for in ear phones, it can be a bit annoying to wear them for bed.

Paul, Lymington Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant sound quality, good base without being overpowering. These are better than my studio headphones (and I thought they were good!). Comfortable and lightweight to wear. Since purchasing I've read a couple of recent reviews and they have also given them a 5 star rating.
Bad points:
I haven't found any!!

Anthony, London Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Stylish to look at although if the entire earphone casing were silver it would look even better.
Decent sound quality and good isolating earbuds.
Bad points:
Use with iPhone and wish it had an in built microphone.
Cable feels a bit cheap and wish it was more like the cable used on a pair of Sennheiser PMX80 Sport II Headphones; these feel much more durable and don't tangle nearly as often.

Mark, Antrim Often on the move

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The sound quality (like just about everything to do with these earphones) is incredible. The noise cancelation is above average - generally they are the best like-for-like earphones ive had
Bad points:
The only issue i had with these earphones is the filters if they get even slightly blocked the volume of the earphones goes down alot so i took the filters out of mine and they have been louder than ever

Purchaser Music lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good sound quality, nice fitting units. Has very good sound fidelity.
Bad points:
Case is bad and kinks the wire when it wraps around the plastic housing.

Bad quality for such a price. The units have a tendency to open, exposing the driver. Had to seal with super-glue!
