There are two balanced armature drivers which handle the production of high frequencies, resulting in highs that are really detailed and have a lot of sparkle and detail to them. The 2 BA drivers are complemented by a dynamic driver (hence the triple driver designation) which handles the mids and the lower frequencies. Mids are smooth and clear while the bass is powerful yet at the same time is well controlled.

Pro Crisp and airy highs with punchy and deep bass

Pro Comfortable to wear for extended periods
The earpieces' tips are slightly angled and allows for a more comfortable, deeper and more secure fit in the ears.
Pro Cable is durable and does not tangle easily
The headphone cable is covered by a fabric sleeve. Not only does this make the cable look and feel expensive, but this also adds to the cable's durability. This also helps prevent the cable from tangling easily.
Pro Easy control of smartphone/music player functions
The inline remote has a metal casing with three buttons that allow you to control tracks, respond to calls as well as adjust the volume.
The remote is compatible with Android and iOS devices.
Pro Made mostly of metal
These in-ears incorporate a lot of metal in the build, with the earpieces, the in-line remote as well as the 3.5mm plug predominantly made out of metal. This gives the headphones nice heft and a quality feel.
Pro You can take calls while using these
The in-line microphone allows you to take calls without having to disconnect these headphones. Microphone sound is rich and has good clarity.
Pro Includes lots of accessories
Along with the headphones, you also get silicone and foam ear tips in multiple sizes, a leather carrying case as well as an airplane adapter. These are functional accessories that definitely add a lot of value to the overall package.
These headphones are really good at creating complex sounds (for a $50 headphone).
Pro Replaceable MMCX cable
This is pretty common for even budget earbuds/IEMs these days, but it's still a feature that deserves to be called out when a lot of mainstream earbuds don't have this feature. It should be an unforgivable sin to not have a replacable cables at this point due to the ubiquity of the feature and for how common it is for the cable of a set of headphones you use with your phone to fail.
Con Highs can get too harsh
The highs sound amazing usually. But on tracks that have a lot of cymbals and other high-pitched sounds, these frequencies can get quite harsh.
Con Vocals slightly shouty
This can be more accentuated before adjusting according to the set of tips, but it's definitely present. For an example of this, try listening to "Unknown Brother" by the Black Keys on a few sets of headphones. In that song Dan Aurbach is singing very emotionally, but isn't quite shouting. Headphones with shouty vocals will present it as him shouting. This is due to a very mild amount of distortion in the midrange frequencies.
Con Bass slightly lacking
Most people aren't going to see this as a true con as what makes these special is that they have a very even, neutral response for the budget sector of headphones.
