"Excellent. Crystal clarity, perfect fit."4.5 starson by Mattp33
Pros: - Very fine detail, very typical of Etymotic.
- Small and lightweight
- Sweet, sweet highs
- Tight, accurate bass
- Triple-flanged eartips are very comfortable and incredibly isolating.
- Other eartips are also good.
- Carry case!
Cons: - Possibly a little too little in the bass department.
Summary: Brilliant all-rounders, great detail, a little lacking in bass.The main problems the other reviewers are having are all solved with time. The triple flanged eartips took about 5 days of heavy use to begin to be comfortable, and the tinniness took about 72 hours to go away*. It's all about stick with it. It's worth it.
