Audio quality is nice and clear, not too much treble or bass. Prettly flatly tuned which is good. as for gaming, the vertical and behind sound is a little weak. If you look around enough with your character like you should then it isnt too offputting unless youre in a building. To be expected with an iem, so i wasnt let down or anything. Soundspace is very natural feeling for an iem that is so close to the eardrum so that was refreshing… i would put them a notch above something like etymotics Iems. I cannot vouch for quality with music as i bought them specifically to game with.
So basically these are a re-jiggered A3000. They're corded, not modular, presumably to eliminate latency and also ensure compatibility with games consoles and handhelds without BT support. I wasn't listening for low/mid/highs since that wasn't the main selling point for these, just the staging. And lemme tell you what, the staging is definitely noticeably wider. That really works for games more than it does for music, but it's improved my music listening as well. The extra widening of the stage helps my ears to pick out instruments and sections that I'd never noticed before. Like, I don't know how else to compare it, but I guess if you're the kind of guy that likes picking apart your sandwiches to eat each ingredient individually, then you'll -really- like these buds.
