Our Verdict

A good set of headphones for people on the move.


  • Good noise cancelling facility.


  • Don't have any real studio application.

This new range of headphones targets the lucrative in-ear market.

Advertised as reference earphones, we're unsure they have any real 'studio' purpose, but they're great for listening on the move.

The noise-cancelling facility (where the headphones seal a vacuum within your ear when squeezed in) is highly effective and means you can set your volume levels considerably lower than other headphones - a good thing indeed when looking after your precious lugs.
