My first impression of these headphones is \"boomy\". The bass is really loud, overpowering the rest of the music. The mids are recessed, and muffled. The highs lack detail and are too quiet.

The packaging is overkill too, I had to fight to get the things out of the packet. There's tape and twist ties everywhere.

The microphonics (cord noise) are worse than usual, which makes them less suitable for portable use than most. A different cord material or some kind of anchor to the ear or a clip onto clothes would help a lot.

Overall, the sound is quite muffled and poorly balanced, and the cord noise makes them unsuitable for portable use. There are far better products on the market.
