Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Produces a natural, accurate sound
The 8 drivers combine to produce a pretty flat and balanced sound. The bass is tight and controlled. Extension is deep yet is not bloated in any way. The mids are full and has a good warmth to it, so vocals are very clear without being too forward or overpowering. There is a lot of detail that can be heard from the highs, yet the frequencies are tuned just right to avoid harshness.
The accuracy makes these great not just for music enjoyment, but also as reference in-ears for mixing/monitoring.
Pro Good sound stage
While the sound stage is not the widest among the high-end options available, what's there is very musical and allows for clear and defined instrument separation.
Pro Multiple high quality cables are included
You get two sets of headphone cables. The stock cable is the standard Westone cable which provides great sound, along with the convenience of an in-line remote and microphone.
For an optimal music listening experience however, you can swap out to the premium ALO cable which helps to bring out the best sound from these headphones thanks to the premium materials used in its construction.
Pro A lot of accessories are included in the package
