Fit

Fit:
"Don't fit your ears, no way to make them fit, therefore sound is terrible."
_
"Fit them too tight and they are a hassle to get on and off."
_
"Pros: they really sound great, very balanced, easy on the ears (you could seriously wear them for hours and forget you have them on), big sound but easy to carry with included pouch, no in ear fitting discomfort issuesCons: Only one so far, and it's not much of one - because they are clip-ons and light, I forget I have them on and move quick enough to dislodge them a bit on occassion, like when I play the Air Drums."
_
"The only thing i didn't like was that a snug fit makes the sound amazing, but I can rarely get a very snug fit."

Listening

Listening:
"For headphones that are very portable and comfortable to use with my I-phone and listening to music not always from the greatest sources, they are just fine."
_
"I got another pair of clip on from sony, it was ok, but not amazing, so i decided to use it just for casual listening, like working in the garden, running, walking, when sounds of music is not my primary concern."
_
"Next days listening had much less of that compressed digital edge I heard on day one, and the sound has steadily improved to where I am happy listening to all but the worst recordings with them."
_
"But I really wanted those pair of Audio Technica for serious listening for when I'm, for instance, taking trip to somewhere, being creative, want to be alone with music etc."
_
"These are supposed to be at their best after 150 hours of listening."
_
"I am listening to on my computer at work right now and the bass is great."
_
"Next days listening had much less of that compressed digital edge I heard on day one, and the sound has steadily improved to where I am happy listening to all but the worst recordings with them."
_
"So after providing hours of listening pleasure I carefully remove them from my head, and polish the Hokkaido Asada Cherry Wood housings with a shoe mitt with a sprits of Pledge to bring out the luster on the wood grain."

_
"- They aren't good for all genres of music."

"It is hard to describe, but if you mainly listen to that kind of music (alternate rock?"
_
"I purchased these to listen to music at low volumes while at work, and they are perfect for this sort of quiet environment."
_
"If your music player has an equilizer, you should be able to adjust for this roll-off."
_
"But I really wanted those pair of Audio Technica for serious listening for when I'm, for instance, taking trip to somewhere, being creative, want to be alone with music etc."
_
"of course they aren't sound cancelling so anybody around will hear your music depending on the volume but their great!"
_
"If you like your music, don't want to go deaf and want comfort these are for you."

_
"ATH has high QC and price is reasonable for a product of such quality."
_
"For the price your paying you know your getting something good, The ATH-EW9's fit on the ear perfectly with no problem and sound great!"

Quality

Quality:
"- Mediocre sound quality in comparison to some cheaper earbud, on-ear, or over-the-ear headphones."
_
"I dislike earbuds, and most of the band-less variety headphones I've seen are mediocre sound quality and built of cheap materials."
_
"Right out of the box I listened to 21 iTunes downloads of 60's, 70's and 80's pop tunes that I like for their musical value primarily and recording quality secondarily and my first impression was not good."
_
"These earphones are extremely comfortable, and the build quality is very good."
_
"These have a nice sound, of quality construction, and are comfortable enough for me to wear them all day."
_
"Subtle, exquisite and excellent sound quality, I'll probably buy a few extra pairs to keep in storage if these ever get discontinued."
_
"ATH has high QC and price is reasonable for a product of such quality."
_
"To my mind, they are way better then my modified iGrado (although I am yet to try wiring iGrado with silver wire, that probably shouln't change the outcome), Sennheiser PMX-200, Koss SportaPro and a good number of other quality cans."

Size

Size:
"Handy size vs. full size HPs, comes with nice little case."
_
"The only thing is that the hewadphone itself is a little smaller on size then i expected, that's probably not something to complain here..."
_
"Having used the ATH-Em9d set regularly when listening to music on the move over the course of 6 years I can say the following:+ Extremely clear audio reproduction across the volume range of common mobile devices.+ The level of comfort beats out all full size cans I have tried and results in no fatigue even in extended wearing sessions.+ The Padding that settles against the ear breathes well and has held up remarkably over the years of use.+ (Personal Taste) The range does not favor either low, mid or high tones and is able to reproduce subtleties in mid range whilst delivering thumpy beats."
_
"Impressive for the size of the unit.+ The cloth and net case keeps things neat and tidy lengthening the life of the cabling."

Sound

Sound:
"Great headphones, clear sound, doesn't have a great bass but i used an equilizer which made them far more to my liking in the bass department."
_
"Probably the largest drawback to these is that sound does leak out into them."
_
"- Mediocre sound quality in comparison to some cheaper earbud, on-ear, or over-the-ear headphones."
_
"I dislike earbuds, and most of the band-less variety headphones I've seen are mediocre sound quality and built of cheap materials."
_
"Don't fit your ears, no way to make them fit, therefore sound is terrible."
_
"Since I got it no more than a few days, it cannot perfectly show how well it is, but anyway, it sounds better than the my EM7."
_
"The only thing i didn't like was that a snug fit makes the sound amazing, but I can rarely get a very snug fit."
_
"The sound is very clear and crisp otherwise."
_
"These have excellent sound, probably the best I've heard from an ear clip design."
_
"Now imagine that clear crisp enhanced sound blasting in both your earlobes!"
_
"Great sound! "
