This is my first pair of in-ears, although I "test drove" a few a NAMM last year. I tried ones with 2 to 7 drivers and have to say that for the $50 price tag, these are great entry level monitors. Bough them to play a gig with a tribute band at a casino where no amps, speaker cabs or floor monitors were allowed (I'm a guitar player) and they worked very well for me. Used the provided tips they came with and they stayed in my ears just fine and everything sounded clear with no annoying high end. Of course they lack a bit in the low end, but even the expensive 7 driver ones I tried had less lows then say a pair of good regular headphones. I am very pleased with the purchase and they also arrived in a timely manner. I would recommend these as a great entry level in-ear or even for everyday activities or the gym or running.
