After minor adjustment, these are perfect earphones.
on 4 April 2010
I bought these headphones after reading several highly positive reviews. However, when I first wore them I was very disappointed by the sound, which was thin and tinny. By pressing the ear pieces deeper into my ears, I noticed an immediate and massive improvement in the sound. All well and good, but you can't walk around with your fingers in your ears! To rectify the problem I found that the position of the ear piece could be altered by twisting it on the rubber frame so that the sound is directed down my ear canal rather than against the inside of the tragus (the bit of the outer ear that the phones sit behind). Each earpiece sits on a curved silver plastic tube. You need to grip this tightly as well as gripping the piece of rubber frame that comes out of the plastic frame. Twist the tube until it naturally sits in an angle relative to your ear canal. You will probably need to overtwist it, because the material is quite springly and will just return to its normal position. Give it a try, if you are experiencing similar problems. This little modification has turned my pair from One star quality to Five star quality.
