It also tells me nothing about microphonics (cable noise generated by friction), which for IEMs, can be a problem and can be annoying for the end user, 'audiophile' or 'Average Joe'.
Basically you can copy and paste your impression descriptions to any earphone or headphone and it'll suit. What makes it different to others, good or bad? You dunno with the current sound description.
A review is really nothing if you don't have something to compare it to as a contrast.
I don't mean to sound harsh but it honestly tells me nothing about it sound impression wise.
by the way, gold plated connection means nothing. really. The gold is there as gold is non-corrosive.
If you read the review properly then you would see we did infact mention cable noise due to any rubbing on the cable. Or the lack of it.
It's directly under the features and impressions heading.
This was simply meant to be a quick comparison against cheapo headphones of the current day, I don't think that much detail is needed for something so cheap. Most people don't need to see a big detailed paragraph on audio quality using terms that would take them ages to learn the meanings of just to decide if a dirt cheap set of earphones are worth it or not.
For the record it has decent bass compared to other cheap earphones. As I said we are not audiophiles, but it does have good positioning which we should have mentioned. Good compared to pretty much anything in the price category, again I'm not here to compare a $25 product to a $100 one.
Never said gold plated meant anything either, I actually said a few posts back that it was a bit of a marketing gimmick anyway
None the less great to see on something in this price range no matter how little it contributes to overall quality.
PS. Video is coming very soon, just editing it now. If you don't find enough detail in both the written and video review then you may want to look for a review written by a site which specializes in audio products Edited by AptivaGaming - 8/20/11 at 11:30pm
