Really good at first, broken after 3 weeks
on 11 June 2014
Got those IEMs at the end of last month after reading some really good reviews on them.
Overall build quality looked really good and the housings are full metal. When I first got them on my hands they felt a bit hollow which I didn't like but they are fine. On the plus side they are really light and comfortable to wear even over extended periods of time (5+ hours).
Sound quality is very good especially considering the price.
Now I said the build quality "looked" good because they broke after 3 weeks of careful use.
I always carry my earphones and mp3 player in a small hard case I own from an old pair of earphones. And let me say that they fit comfortably in there (I mean it's not too small to compress them or something similar).
Last night, I had them in the case and in my pocket. This morning I opened the case to get them and the earphones were broken. I mean physically broken, not just "not working".
At about the middle of the housing the metal was detached, being two pieces (one with the cable and the other with the driver and the outside foam tip). The right one is still attached to the cable and is working, but on the left one, one of the cables is detached and obviously not working.
There is no way for me to fix them, and even the one that is working will not stay in place.
Here is a pic , and will upload it here as well.
I do not know if I got a faulty pair, or if the build quality is actually that bad in every pair (or the brand in general).
I hope it was only a faulty pair, but this was unacceptable.
I will not be buying those again.
