Bought these to try something other than ear buds. I usually use some V-moda Vibes. Unlike the the vibes there is very little bass response and the mids seem to stand out more than anything. That's all fine and good if you're mostly planning on just listening to some singer song writer acoustic or some type of ambient stuff, but i like to hear the bass hit when i'm listening to some rap or electronic stuff. Also, you can't turn these up too loud if you're listening to some death metal or some kind of hardcore. The more technical/ high energy stuff gets crackle-y fairly easy.
Bottom Line: I'm gonna return these unless i can find someone to give em to.
