I bought this solely for walks during the rainy season when there’s a chance of a sudden light rain since it’s all plastic. I also love open back headphones cos they sound more spacious and there’s less resonance issues. This also just sits in the outer ear rather than deeper. I prefer this. Also the bigger driver size was a plus for me. These are surprisingly detailed in the vocals allowing me to pick up nuances which for the price is quite amazing. Comfort is excellent for me. They disappear on and in the ear. I don’t feel it behind my ear, I thought I would. Every ear differs so your experience might differ. The cable seems thin but should last a couple of years for me at least since I’m super careful not to pinch them and place them down carefully. Where it shows it’s low price is the absence of a weighty sound, the overall tonality is a bit on the lighter side but that’s to be expected given the all plastic construction and affordable price. Not really a drawback for me and one that I expected. It does a decent job at blocking out sounds of kids playing while I walk even with volume at a reasonable not so high level which is a good bonus. Overall I’d buy these again as my monsoon pair. I use my audio quest dragonfly red as standard with my phone and it powers these also so they scale up quite well with better sources.
