THEY DON'T EXPLODE !! (GET GUMY!!)
on 11 February 2015
I was DISSAPOINTED.These earbuds are smaller than they look.The sound quality is very good,clear,balanced,nice tonal quality,good tonal bass.Worth the lower price of £8.50 certainly.BUT WHERE IS THE XX?WHERE IS THE SUPER-POWERED BASS?WHERE IS THE DYNAMIC POWER OR VOLUME?
These are completely mis-sold.If you want a good quality sounding earphones,they are worth the money,but they are low in volume,not very loud,not dynamic,(no impact or power),and the bass is not extra strong.These earphones would be good for classical,light music,jazz,somewhere you need quality and balance of sound,NOT POWER.Club music,Rock or anything with a bit of power in it?forget it.
If you want a step up from your basic supplied earphones,these will certainly satisfy you.But forget the 'explosive' hype,the bass is O.K.,the quality of sound is clear and of high quality,The volume and especially dynamics(punch)is not great!The drivers are small,(8.5mm).Compare with JVC GUMY HA-FX5,(£6,50)AND THESE ARE POWERFUL,VERY loud,great bass and impact,(11mm driver!).Much Much better.
Having moaned on and on,whatever my preferences are,these ARE worth the money,but don't whack your heavy power tracks through them.
