    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Finally got my replacement unit, and it's been working like a charm.

    Sound quality is simply amazing. It's similar to branded earphones in the $20 to $30 range! The wooden housing is pretty cool, too. Doesn't really need that much of a burn-in. It's great out of the box.

    Cons:

    The first one I got had a defective left side. This replacement unit is fully functional, except for some driver flex on the left side (again).

    Kinda hard to distinguish the left and right channels, as the L and R signs are right below the housing on the strain relief. QC could be a bit stricter too, as there were a lot of leftover glue sticking on the back of the housing (metal bass ports?).

    It's a bit bass-light, although the amount of bass in itself is quite adequate (not for bassheads)

    OtherThoughts:

    Kanen should mark the left and right channels clearly (maybe paint the L and R markings white on the strain relief). Right now, the only way to know is the "Kanen" label on the housing itself, facing outwards.

    Bottomline:

    For the price, this model is quite hard to beat. Don't expect soundstaging or headstaging, though :) It's great as a backup pair, or as primaries if this is your first time to get into the in-ear design. Get some better eartips like sony hybrids.
