everything the FMJ should have been
Hard to say how long these will hold up, given their pedigree, but for now, this is the in-ear headphone I've been waiting for. The rubber ring that wraps the outer body of the earpiece creates a fit much more snug than only the rubber tips could offer. A tighter seal over the ear also means you finally get to enjoy the better bass that the more powerful driver offers. End result? Cleaner sound quality in the mids and uppers. Finally feels like the tunes are tickling your gray matter.
