Had auditioned Beats solo3, Bose soundsport iem, all are award winning. Got the grind after going through the reviews. As headphone wise the sound quality is good blue tooth streaming is good and battery is good and comfortable on ear. It is double time better than its value. The only thing is it cannot be folded and the telephonic conversation is not that good. Recommend it. I wont say its audiophile or studio quality but entertaining sound or sweet sounding at the same time the highs are not bright mids are little recessed but sweet, the quality of the bass is good but not that much of beats which is clean rounded bass. Grind bass will not intrude in to mid. Better sound stage than beats I did not expect this much from a closed hp.
