Con Wearing these in-ears while on the move can be distracting due to microphonics
When the wires move or brush on your clothes while wearing these headphones, the rattling sound can be transmitted to the earpieces. This can be quite annoying.
Con Muddy mids
Due to the bass being quite prominent in these in-ears, the mids take a negative hit, as the bass gives the mids a muddy sound. Guitars and male vocals will not sound very clear at times for example.
