Performance where it counts!!! Excellent SQ,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phonak Audéo Perfect Bass Earphones 012 Colour Black (Electronics)
Bass - this needs to be split into two variables;
> Quantity; the amount of bass is medium, so probably not for bassheads, who like it 'thumping'. It's quite subtle, which is how I like it.
> Quality; very good bass reproduction that sounds realistic, which means the sounds is far more detailed than bass heavy earphones.
Mids - These IEMs have great clarity in the mids. Which is great, since so often IEM manufacturers seems to forget the mids as they concentrate on getting the bass and treble right.
Treble - This is one area where these monitors excel, brilliant in every area and never harsh on the ear. Best I've heard from IEMs, surprising considering there is only a single armature per monitor.
Other - handling of microphonics (noise, static, etc) is excellent, usually when I plug my headphones or earphones into my laptop I can hear some noise (like static) at very low volumes. But the Phonak's seem to have virtually eliminated this.
This is always personal to the individual. The monitors are nice, small and fit perfectly in my ears. I wear them looped over the top of my ear.
Well nothing really, except the S/M/L ear-tips. But that is why you save £40 over the PFE 112s, both use the same monitors.
You can buy filters the grey/black ones if you want to change the sound reproduction a little. I have not tried this though so cannot comment. These come with green filters, specialised for 'perfect bass'.
The monitors are plastic, but solid and has a decent thick cable.
These IEMs are excellent when it come to 'bang for buck' and perform well enough to contend with the high-end IEMs at a mid-end price. Would suit all users, except the bassheads out there. Overall, these IEMs perform where it counts; in the sound department.
