Music

Music:
"Not as good for deep listening of music."
_
"I was using this headphones mainly for exercise i guess it couldn't take it, it lasted like 4 months, then one of the ear buds stopped working, not really too happy with this headphones, if you use them just to hear music without sweat maybe they will last longer."
_
"There are lots of sites with information and recommendations for how to burn in IEMs, but the quick and dirty: get a music player with some oomphf, find some busy music with some juevos to it and put album or two of that on auto repeat."
_
"At times i am surprised by these earbuds bringing up subtle layers of music I may have missed."
_
"Both male and female vocals, piano, and guitars sound good on their own, but listening to heavy music reveals the harshness of the high end."
_
"The bass isn't too punchy so you can actually hear and enjoy the full range of your music."
_
"These are best suited for textural, wide and layered music mostly because of the very honest sound production."
_
"With this product i am able to listen to music and other types of audio"
_
"These reproduce electronic music very well."

Treble

Treble:
"Very cheaply made and the sound is weak, a lot of treble and very little base or rich sound."
_
"these things are amazing, the only drawback is the INSANE amount of treble they are capable of at higher volumes, you get the deep bass and everything sounds great but the treble is so high that it will HURT so as suggested these things need to be burned in but overall you cant beat them for the price."
_
"Also, they have very good bass - balanced and strong enough to satisfy me (Most in ears I have heard are shy on bass for my taste).The Bad: The high midrange low treble frequencies sound horrible."
_
"The combination of smack treble and buzzy mids makes for very inconsistent note presentation and song by song presentation."
_
"They sound better and are just as treble happy as these."
_
"Excellent sound quality - deep bass and treble not too sharp."
_
"The bass and treble level is perfect."
_
"The treble is great, mids are good, but the bass can be a little lacking."
_
"these things are amazing, the only drawback is the INSANE amount of treble they are capable of at higher volumes, you get the deep bass and everything sounds great but the treble is so high that it will HURT so as suggested these things need to be burned in but overall you cant beat them for the price."
