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