might be easier to press for the weak and/or vulnerable crew

Yeah, really feeling them, TCB.

I'm coming from wired BEATS cans so not really comparable.

In ear they're extremely comfortable and it's the first pair of earbud's that I've been able to wear without them falling out (and I've tried loads!); even manage to run in them with no problems.

Sound is good and the app allows you to tailor the sound too.

Easy to use with touch/tap sensor (1 tap - start/stop, 2 taps- skip a track, 3 taps - back a track). They turn on as you put them in ear (you get a satisfying sound when you chuck them in) and turn off when you take them out - can even use them individually.

Sound isolation is crazy - I can wear them in an open plan office and not hear anyone at all but again you can turn ambient noise on and off if you wanna.

Charging case is pretty minimal and works a treat on charging pads if you need any extra charge.

Not experienced any bluetooth drop out yet. I guess the cost is a drawback but so far I feel that the outlay has been worth it.

After messing around with DAT and its super unreliability in an effort to achieve what I had with my well missed MZ-RH1 Hi-MD unit I studied up on the state of the art. I settled on a ZX300 with IER-M7 IEMs and at first I was like, okay DSD sounds very good but it's weak, the power of the 300 doesn't seem to "drive" the M7s well at all and my unbalanced EX700s from a decade ago do a much better job..then I found the Hi Gain option..world changed..amazing. Surpasses the RH1. Loud but not harsh, "rounded" sound. I can listen at very high volumes without any pain. I love this ish and I'm now a believer. Now if only Sony released a cool looking bluetooth remote, the current one is boring as hell, where did that Sony cool from the '90s go?

I'd kill a man for a MD-style remote that displayed Spotify track details etc.

I don't know what spotify is but yeah man, it's totally missing in the marketplace. All these bluetooth remotes look basic as fuck.

I was always surprised that Apple phased out their iPod remote before iPod hit mass distribution
