I needed to replace my Soundmagic E10 phones which unfortunately were broken when a large dog jumped up on me, pulling them out of my ears and in the process snapped the jack! Initially thought about the E10s again because for £30 or so they're about the best in their class.
Came across the Adagio lll and was struck by the cool design with the right ear housing coloured red and the left one in white and after reading various reviews decided they were for me, even though twice the price of the E10s.
Comparing the Adagio's with my 'best' earphones (Monster Turbine Pro-Copper) which are/were nearly three times the price of the adagio's, I was mightily impressed with the powerful bass and 3D vast airy soundstage. This deep but taut bass is only achieved after burning them in for between 30-50 hours, so possible buyers be warned, don't make a snap decision after listening to them 'out of the box', do run them in before passing judgement.
I rated them five stars simply for their sound, the only slight quibble I have is that I wish the cabling looked a little more robust, which the Monsters certainly are and accessories are a bit sparse, only three pairs of silicone tips and no pouch but for me, how they sound is of more importance. One last point, supplied eartip quality is quite good but would advise obtaining Sony Hybrids, I think nozzle diameter size is 4mm, same as the Sony MDR-EX1000 phones.
To conclude, I believe the Adagio lll's come pretty close to the performance level of more costlier earphones.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Showing my age with the review title.

I've been searching for some decent earphones for a while as the stock earphones with mobile phones are generally quite rubbish and my wife won't let me use her apple ones!

COMFORT
These are actually really good in-ear buds - most of the ones i've tried in the past have been uncomfortable or just make the whole world really muffled and just don't stay in my ears properly. These were pleasantly comfortable. It comes with three different size of 'buds' so that you can adjust to what is most comfortable for you. If you're usually averse to in-ear phones then I would still recommend giving these a try as they are much more comfortable than any others I've tried.

SOUND
As the title of the review suggests, these handle bass beautifully. It isn't a 'muffled' or 'scratchy' bass but really clear and tight. Neither do these overwhelm the higher tones. However, if your main music is rock, folk or anything other than hip-hop, rap, dance or anything that really loves bass, I would stay away. Why? Well, even with the equaliser adjusted, I still found that the bass came through stronger than I would like.

Hope that helps

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Final Audio's foray into the mid range earphone market doesn't disappoint in terms of sound but alas the build quality and packaging are a little lacking.

Maybe I've been a little spoiled by the phones I've tested recently but opening these was something of a disappointment. No case, only 3 tip options and a cable that can only be described as fragile looking, all a little underwhelming at first glance. The earpieces themselves are chunky, worryingly so for someone with small ear cavities but my fears were misplaced. Although they feel big I managed to achieve a good, comfortable seal on my first attempt. The ear pads are coloured coded so no mistakes telling which ear is which.

Trying a selection of music the first thing I noticed was the punchy yet full sounding bass, not woolly but rich and very satisfying. This wasn't to the detriment to the mids and highs which remain clear although the highs lack the sparkle of my old Sennheiser cx880's or the separation of my Klipsch x10's. Both those phones cost a good deal more but the Final Audios don't sound out of place in that company. For those keen on bass heavy genres, rap, dubstep, r&b these sound really decent but don't do so well for me on cleaner electronic tones.

I'm not sure how well the thin cable will stand up to robust daily usage and I'd be a bit worried about using them while exercising but they should survive the daily commute or domestic use and will reward the user with a very pleasant sound experience.

At last! I've been through a number of high end earphones over the years - Shure, Sennheiser,Bowers & Wilkins, but these are just the best I've ever experienced, and amazing value for the sound they deliver. Warm, punchy bass! Every time I listen, the way my music sounds puts a smile on my face.

I just some bought Comply T200 tips to go with them too and now they sound even better.

Purchased on behalf of a Stuff Magazine review. They should come with a caution, these earphones are bass heavy. I appreciate that beats headphones have set the tone for the market these days but some people still like their music to sound like the artists and producers intended. Cable rattle isn't too bad but don't run with these. I've yet to find a bud size that fits my ear and doesn't fall out but thats more to do with my ear shape than audio quality so I won't delve into that canal. Final thoughts, for £40ish they do look a little on the cheap side aesthetically but i'm not too concerned with that, just thought it was worth the mention for anyone that it does concern.
