I bought these to replace a pair of Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 3 in-ear 'phones, which, despite sounding great, barely lasted a year before their second set of cables gave up the ghost. These are smaller, lighter and have a less rigid cable which seems less likely to die on me; they are comfortable - perhaps more so than thte Ultimate Ears, which protruded rather too far for my liking - and I can happily wear them for extended periods. The disappointment must, however, lie with the sound, which is greatly inferior. It is very bass heavy and the treble sounds flat and recessed, a real problem with vocal music as voices get lost behind great stodgy lumps of low-end sound, even after running-in for at least 24 hours. As a result, I listen to them much less than the Ultimate Ears.
