    Hi everyone!

    I recently bought these headphones just to listen to some music as my other headphones died, and I'm now saving maybe for some Shure's

    First Impressions:
    When i took the IEM's out of the box, and plugged them into my iPod Touch 1G, the sound was not so good. You can hear bass, but not defined, and the mids and the highs are really bad.

    After some usage:
    After a week or so, when finally burned in, they surprised me.
    The sound turned out to be good. The bass was ok, the mids and the highs acceptable.
    I listen mostly to Rock, Metal, House, but also some other music styles. I needed to get more defined mids and highs, so I solved it just by setting the EQ to "Treble Booster".
    Now I like the headphones very much, they are good

    Overall:
    These are 20€ headphones, they are pretty good for the price, but they are not so good out-of-the-box, as many other headphones.

    How were the mids and highs "really bad" and how were they "acceptable" after burn in?

    It could be that you was still used to your old ones.
    the iPod amp is awful, though. My Sennheiser CX400s sound great, but on an iPod they sound a bit different which none of the preset EQs can fix. (FS I need manual EQ)

    Well the fact is that I was still used to my old headphones, and it was the first time I listened to these

    After burn in you can notice that the mids and highs are way better!
