Earphones that try to immitate the Sennheiser IE 800 for a much cheaper price sometimes deserve a praise. Unfortunately, this isn't one of those cases. The sound is mid-bass bloated, muddy and headache-inducing.

I got a perfect seal straight out of the box. No issues here. You get these pretty green tips of all sizes if you need to adjust the fit.
Lows / Bass
A warm sound signature means a lot of mid-bass. This is what you get with these - a lot of bass. The bass is kicking and is pretty good. However, no sub-bass, the drivers are just too weak. The bass distorts quite a lot, and the bass shaker test failed with a lot of cracking noises. Same happens when you attempt to amplify them too much.
Mids / Vocals
The vocals are almost completely overwhelmed by the bass. Even when there isn't much bass, the vocals are plain weak.
Highs / Treble
The highs are destroyed by the bass. The sound has no clarity. You can barely hear the hi-hats in all of that mess.
