    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cheap
    Solid Build
    Has Mic
    Good Fit
    Excellent Noise Isolation
    Strong and Deep Bass

    Cons:

    As with all low end IEMs:bass heavy
    Small Soundstage
    Sibilance is present (but not heavy)
    Weaker Mids and Highs
    Cable is a bit too thin
    Headphone jack is tiny and feels easily broken or ripped
    Mic button feels very cheapy-plasticy (i.e. like the plastic in made in china knockoff Barbie dolls)
    Cable is ~8cm too short for my personal taste

    OtherThoughts:

    initially hard to distinguish between left and right ears, but after studying the headphones for awhile, finally got it.

    Sound:
    (Without burn in, straight from box, running on Samsung Galaxy Ace with EQ)
    boomy bass, a bit too over the top and a bit loose. mids and highs could be stronger, lacking a bit of power. sound imagery and instrument separation is not excellent.
    sound signature is close to soundmagic pl-21, but the SM has better clarity and tighter bass

    Bottomline:

    The absolute best IEM I have ever heard in this price range. it is definitely a good buy. no need to think twice.
    play around with EQ and you can even strangle out a bit of mids and highs out of these to produce a decent pair of phones.

    The sound analysis is based upon comparison to IEMs minimum 10 times its price (pl-50, westone um2, Shure se-215)


    TL;DR: Good Buy, Warm Sound Signature
