Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"The soundstage is non existent, so I wouldn't recommend these for any kind of audio production (though who is going to look at these and think about making music with them)."
_
"With that out of the way my biggest problem is the sound..The audio quality to put in terms is quite balanced on some occasions but when I directly compared them to my Ultimate Ears 600vi (aside from their weak cable) the Nue Era set had better bass it's smooth, it's lush sounding."
_
"The Polk Audio Nue Era Headphones are uncomfortable for side sleepers."
_
"I don't normally use earbuds, and I don't have a ton of experience with them but I wanted to weigh in on these after some appreciation with Polk Audio service."
_
"Excellent audio quality but shoddy hardware."
_

Fit

Fit:
"It comes with lots of sizes of foam bud attachments and you will need them, but they won't all fit as well unfortunately."
_
"And the earpieces must be fragile, because my right earpiece's speaker broke when I put on a better fitting cushion."
_
"If they don't fit right the bass doesn't sound as good."
_
"Unfortunately, even with all of the options, I was not able to get a truly tight fit, which is important as the fit helps reduce external noise and bumps up the bass."
_
"Without the good fit, and reduction in external noise, in a noisy situation (such as a crowded train during rush hour) these headphones sound tinny."
_
"The problem is that they fit into your ear with a rubber seal that truly seals them in place and that amplifies your breathing a *lot*."
_
"They fit comfortably in the ear and even after hours of use, feel comfortable."
_
"They come with a variety of sizes of molds that fit quite comfortably."
_
"The design fits my ears well and they are very stable and comfortable even when exercising."
_
"First, the positive...these are the best fitting most comfortable earbuds I've tried."
_
"Found the perfect fit with the various included tip sizes."
