How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Zero distortion at even the highest volumes. Swappable filters that work like an EQ and let you customize your listening experience. A replacement cable, in case the original one gets snagged. With near-universal acclaim from audiophile reviewers, these may be the best non-custom earbuds ever made. The catch? A $600 price tag that makes them more expensive than many custom models. By all means buy them if you can. We just can't bring ourselves to recommend them.
