I am an audiophile who knows nothing about how things work or understands the difference between subtle treble forward or sub-bass but i really love music and the better it sounds the more i love it!! After buying a pair of true wireless earbuds from Final audio that impressed me i looked further into the company and was intrigued. Their A8000 IEM's seemed to be getting unbelievable reviews and Bloom Audio, which was actually near where i live, had them for me to listen to.
The people at Bloom where so incredibly nice and helpful. there was no pressure from anyone but rather a group of very knowledgeable people waiting to help me if i needed it. After about 20 minutes i fell in love with the A8000"s. Not to sound cliche but it was like hearing my music for the first time. I purchased them knowing that i had 30 days to try them and be sure i really liked them as i had never made an investment like this before. Well, it's been over 30 days and you couldn't get them away from me now. I'm amazed how I'm hearing things i never heard before. Since this purchase I've contacted the people at Bloom with questions about other audio products and they have been so incredibly helpful responding back quickly and actually explaining things to me in a way that maybe for the first time I'm actually starting to understand something about audio, more than just the fact that i love how these sound.
I've had these for a few months now, and they're absolutely spectacular. While the packaged accessories are a little bit of a let down, the earphones themselves and their carrying case are superb. While slightly bright for the first few weeks of ownership, they've settled in to being some of the most perfectly balanced headphones I've had. Additionally, they have an incredible ability to separate sounds from each other in very natural ways. Going back to other headphones after using these for extended periods of time feels like a huge step in the wrong direction- headphones that once seemed clear are now muddy as I look for the same headspace and separation of instruments. As for fit, I can comfortably wear these for hours- though the first week or two wasn't as comfortable. Now I do not feel them in my ears at all.
