Summary:
First off, I would like to point out that I am a 15-year-old audiophile. We’re a rare breed, but we do exist. It drives me crazy when people listen to their iPods using only one earbud, especially when that earbud is white and apple-branded. Anyway, these earphones are probably the best I have used. I have tried models from Grado, Shure, Audio-Technica, and Yuin, none of which even compare to the clarity of the B&O’s. I also have the Form 2′s, which do sound a bit better, but are much more cumbersome and are best left alone in my studio

Strengths:
- Excellent Tonal Clarity
- Fits in iPhone with simple modifications
- Relatively inexpensive for the quality
- Comfortable
- Free pads from the B&O Store when you need them
- Well built
- Carrying case + extension cable are nice additions

Weaknesses:
- A bit lacking in bass (not really a problem though, it makes them sound very clear and open)

Similar Products Used:
Yuin PK1+PK2
Grado SR60,SR80
The entire AKG line
Shure e4c
Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi
B&O Form 2

    I thought this thing was a generic mass market type product, not an audio enthusiast product.
