It’s specifically designed for Bass Lovers and though it doesn’t affect the users harmfully, very comfort. It will make the users get away from the surroundings unless it is away from the ears.

The sound quality is very impressive. As the technology used in this earphone is as same as an over the ear studio headphone users, it gives a perfect and quality output to the users. It has an ambient sound sensitivity, which reproduces the input to an amplified output. This will create a virtual surrounding, even if they are stereo earphones.
