Performance

These earphones are excellent. They effectively cut the noise on an airliner, and provided excellent sound reproduction. You need to be sure to install them properly, but once you do it is as if you are transported to another place. In spite of reports to the contrary, I had no problem installing them in my ears. They were comfortable for a nearly 3-hour flight. Highly recommended.

You do have to push them very deep to get them properly seated and my ears felt sore afterward. Some say they didn't get sore. In any case, once they're in, they sound super clean and extremely detailed. The bad part about it is that the better a headphone sounds, the easier it is concentrate on what it lacks. The bass response is extremely natural and pretty flat. That maybe what you want for critical listening but most people are not doing criical listening on their ipods on the way to wherever they're going... these are so clean that now its just more apparent that you're listening to mp3s and you can really hear the artifacts in lower rate mp3s. If you're using it with an ipod or something, I definitely think the 6i would be a better choice I use these with a Hi-MD Mindisc player which has a better headphone amp than ipods and I still have to pump up the volume to get an acceptable listening level because these headphones are made for more powerful amps. So they suck a little more juice. I use them with my custom molded musicians earmolds which I love. There's no muffle every time you take a step and there's increased bass response because the molds go deep in your canal. You can get adapters to use custom ear molds instead of the silicone earpiece. But the molds are about $150... only worth it if you're a musician or go to alot of concerts...

Nice, light, good sound

on 10/19/2006

You really have to push it deeeep, only after that you can enjoy the good sound, no need of batteries for noise reduction, very light, a little long cord but no big deal. I really liked it, maybe cheaper could be even better but I am not sorry I bought it. I might try other brand such as Sure just to compare.
