Summary: I have many sets of earphones and these are now the least used. Indeed I now prefer some relatively cheap earphones whose name I can't even recall! The problem is one of getting the right fit and keeping it to ensure good sound quality. When you do get it right the results are very good but that usually means mucking about for a while and then remaining quite still.
Summary: I bought a pair of these after going through a range of in ear headphones. I bought my 1st pair of in ears over 11 years ago and it was one of the early Sony models. After then, I tried many different brands and my latest set prior to the UEs were a pair of Sennheiser MM70i. When I got the UE's, it took a while to find the most comfortable position and earbud selection but once I got this right, man I fell in love with them.
Summary: Brilliant sound for anyone who likes many different types of music, some will find them not bassy enough but that's being picky, I've tried more expensive ones from sennhiser and shure but in my opinnion they're only for audiophiles and lovers of classical music. Unless you spend thousands on speakers you won't get sound this good. Also love them For having replaceable cables. never spend this type of money without this option you will regret it.
Summary: My story is similar to many here. The quest for the perfect headphones enevitably led me to these and i too have been through many makes & models prior to these including the ultimate ears SFI5 Pro's. Believe me, once you have had a taste of good IEMs (In Ear Monitors, for those wondering) and the 'OMG-what have i been missing' factor they slap you with, its only a matter of time before you start looking for more.
Summary: Having blown up my SHURE E2C's (and never once having any issues in the 5yrs of owning them), I decided to upgrade a little. After deliberation I decided to try these UE Triple-Fi's. First of all the sound quality I experienced was not good enough to warrant the extra money (£50 for the E2's and £220 for Triple-Fi's) Secondly and perhaps worse, I have recently purchased my 4th replacement cables in only a couple of years.
Summary: I have never bought such expensive headphone. I was concerned about the quality. I had to get some as my partner stole my Etymotics and wont give them back so I had a good benchmark to work from. These do the job. Not as comfortable for my narrow ear canals as the etymotics, but the sound is richer and the base excellent. Used with my HTC with "beats audio" the sound reproduction is excellent and the noise elimination very, very good.
Summary: As someone that is obsessed with true sound I was really excited about these headphones. I have to say, these are without doubt the best headphones I have owned (and I have quite a few as well as some beautiful monitor speakers in the studio). My only issue with them is the build quality of the cable sucks! I have had mine for two months and it has broken at the jack and higher up! Now I cannot listen to them as the sound is disrupted by crackling.
Was a little skeptical due to the price, but these are great!

Summary: These headphones are great, they sound great, look great, could not be happier! I thought these might be fake or something, especially at the price, but I have listened to them for 2 months now and I am very happy with the sound quality, and the build quality. I brought them as a refurbished pair, however they arrived like a brand new pair, new cable and foams, the earpieces themselves were immaculate.
