These are designed like proper in-ear monitors, but all the design choices have been made primarily with budget in mind, not quality. They have a lot of the same features as proper IEM, but all poorly implemented. The cable feels cheap, there's no adjustable thing at the back to snug it up tight to your head, the entire thing feels cheap... and the sound is horrible! In a pinch, I'd be willing to give these to a back vocalist, or electric guitar. But that's it... nobody else could use these. Under no circumstances would I give these to a lead vocal, piano, bass, drummer, etc because the bottom end sucks so bad. There's just nothing redeeming about these IEM.

I love the sound of these IEMs but ultimately opted for (more expensive) Audio Technica M50s headphones instead. The problem with these Apex IEMs was the fit. No matter which buds I used, I couldn't get them to stay where I placed them - and placement makes a big difference in the sound. Maybe it's the fact I wear glasses, but even smiling seemed to be enough to cause them to shift. Great sound - amazing bass and crisp highs - and they are very durable but the fit was a deal breaker for me.

I like that these pair of IEM use MMCX connectors so you can switch cables for different applications. These might be the cheapest IEMs on market that allows that. The sound is quite decent, but thats about personal taste. I listen to classic rock, jazz and a little bit of metalcore.

I bought these primarily for drumming and they do the job. They're very sensitive and don't need much to get good volume. They feel great in terms of build quality, especially the cord. Regarding the sound, it's very dependent on which of the included earbuds you use and how they fit in your ear. The 2 section ones fit my ears best, but tend to make the low mids a bit muddy and hollow. Bass is defined and highs are crisp however. They do the job for my application well and don't regret the purchase.

I've been using these in church now for about a year and, they sound great. The only issue I have is they don't stay in my ears very well. I'm constantly having to adjust them. I haven't used any other models such as Shure in a close price range, so i don't know how much better they would stay in. But they sound just fine for anyone looking to use in ears with out spending an arm and a leg.

I bought these thinking they could be a good replacement for my broken shure SE215. After the first gig, I was really satisfied with the overall sound. The cable ia actually interchangeable with the Shure line. One major issue is the way the earbuds are hold in place on the headphone. There is nothing to keep them from falling and I lost one earbud after a week only and the other earbuds supplied with the headphones don't fit well my ear canal. Now I'm stuck buying extra buds. I have to put some hot glue to hold them in place. Not a big deal but imagiine you loose it during a concert! For the price it's does the job except for that flaw in the design.

Normally I do not use these in-ears. I have my own moulded in-ears. But I was in a bind when my in-ears broke and I had to get them fixed. If you are looking for a great sounding IEM for this price, you will not find it. But, for $65, they work really well. Definitely a great way to go for a beginner IEM. I would recommend them to anyone who has not used IEMs before. A great price for what you get. RESPONSE to frequencies: I am a drummer, so I like to have a lot of kick and bass in my ears. I found that I could hear them both distinctly once I got a good fit. (I found that the graduated size of earbuds fit me best. All depends on your ear canal size.) The lows are fairly good, which, personally is a good thing. If you buy these expecting them to sound like quad drivers, you will be disappointed. But, they are a great back up when your in a crunch. And great for the beginner IEM user.
