The best sound quality ever heard with an iem

joyofmusic, 13.09.2018
Impressive step forward with electrostatic technology. It provides an astonishing quality of the sound. Music cannot be more real and natural than this, even comparing with more expensive flagship items. I prefer KSE1200 over the KSE1500 because I do not need the built-in DAQ. Not worth in my opinion using a separate good quality DAQ.
I've read other reviews claiming the sound is flat, true,
but flatness is not a common feature of iems, even flagship iems. To be neutral and transparent doesn't mean "boring", not at all in my opinion! Basses are there but you don't hear the "humph"....who said that? I think that if you don't hear basses, the sealing is not perfect. In this respect I have only one suggestion (and a small critics to Shure). Included eartips could be of better quality. I immediately substituted the original ones with silicone SpinFit eartips CP-800. The seal was perfect and the sound quite different. Basses are definitely there, with an unprecedented and unheard quality.
In conclusion, I agree with siruspan: once heard you will never forget the perfection of this sound.

One of the best headphones in the world.

Siruspan, 08.06.2018
The headphones are quite ordinary in appearance and construction. Surprisingly light, transparent, plastic domes practically the same as in the cheapest Shure models. Considering the price Shure could do a lot better. The Kevlar braided and terminated with a 6-pin LEMO type plug cable is not detachable and it is quite heavy. Interestingly, it has a round profile, and it is not a flat ribbon like in any other electrostatic headphones. An amplifier is required to operate the headphones. It is small, rounded aluminum box with a potentiometer to adjust the volume which also serves as a on/off switch. Sound sources can be connected only via a 3.5mm mini jack line in. Built-in battery allows up to 12 hours playtime. They demand attention, they order to stop other activities and focus on music. They are neither warm nor cold, neither light nor dark. I would define their character as transparent-neutral with a properly boosted bass to match modern music. They offer spectacular and captivating real sound while being extremely transparent and musical at the same time. Such high fidelity combined with isolation makes the listening an almost mystical experience. Highly recommended if you can afford it.
