I live in Australia and to by these IEM’s locally would have cost $700 or more! So I placed my order through Earphone Solutions. Postage was free, which was nice! And they didn’t just use the cheapest slowest postage either, they put it through international FedEx! These little things make me want to shop from here again in the future.
As for the product, Awesome! They sound beautiful, I’m no audiophile so I dont know how to accurately judge things like lows, mids and highs very well, but all the music I have played through them so far has sounded terrific! I dont like listening to music on anything else now.
As for noise isolation, exceptional! Maybe even too good. With my player on only half volume I struggle to hear anything, I was waiting for a bus the other day, my IEM’s in looking at my phone screen, all of a sudden I feel a gust of wind on my face, I look up and there is my bus passing not 20cm from my face and I didn’t hear it. And just yesterday I was wearing them while driving my car, I almost started red-lining my engine because I could not hear that I needed to change gears!
Build quality is great too, even though they are only made out of plastic, it is good plastic and they feel really robust and sturdy. The cable feels nice and supple, and so far I have been unable to tangle it. Where the cable joins on to the Westone 4r looks good too, it is a really tight fit, no wobbling lose or falling out issues in my mind.
you also get a waterproof protective box, a ton of tips and a few other bits and pieces with it too.
