The acclaimed "bass exciter" at first to me I thought was a marketing tactic, to my delight this bass exciter is fantastic! The headphones provide great quality good mids and lows, the bass, is like nothing I've ever experienced with any other headset. Its insanely deep and does literally vibrate your ears at higher volumes. The quality of the materials is great, robust metal and strong cabling. My one gripe would be that my left speaker seems to output more punch than my right one. This may just be mine but overall I highly recommend these earphones.

Ok So I have had these over a month and a half now. I am not an audiophile just your average dude that listens to music.
I have to say on days where you want club bass in the middle of your lounge, class, office, park anywhere these certainly perform!
The 'Bass Exciter' IS a gimmick but one that works. The Mids and Lows come at you so differently to how your typical Beats, SkullCandy, Celebrity endorsed earphones etc approach it. These deliver that feeling of being trapped between a thumping club speaker and for that experience they are brilliant. For the highs there a bit tinny and obviously wahed out but not t the point that they are lost which I was quite suprised by. One thing to note is the Bass Exciter obviously only works with mid-high to high volume.
The Design is not going to be to everyones taste they stick out of your ears like no mans business so may need to be bold, ignorant or oblivious to the world around you but hey if your a basshead you dont care. I do like the metal on plastic finish its a kind of similar appraoch like my ie80's. The cable is thick and I would NOT recommend these for gym use as they rub and are awkwward when constantly moving. I removed a star for the fit its not comfortable over long use due to the in ear prong that locks these buds into place and that might not be to everyones taste. Also the cost is a bit much you can get better higher all round quality earphones for the price, however for a unique Bass experience they stand out abve the crowd.
So inconclusion these are probably the oddest, unique, bold approach I have seen to a Bass orientated earphone. I would say for any basshead these are a must! They live up to the hype on the box. They are not over marketed but worth getting in my opinion for days where you want to take the club experience with you wherever you go.
