There was some hype among budget earphone enthusiasts about these earphones, so I had to see what the hype is all about. I still don't understand. Good looking earphones that sound below avarage. No detail precision at all. The vocals and highs are overemphasized and harsh, very painful to listen to.

Comfort & Fit
The GR are quite heavy so even if you have well-fitting tips, they still might fall out. Also, they are long because of the filters, so they stick out of your ears.
Lows / Bass
With the black filters, the bass is actually pretty good, slighty punchy but nothing extraordinary. With the red filters, the bass is absent completely.
Mids / Vocals
Loud but has no clarity. Inaccurate tone with a lot of sibilance with both filters, maybe slightly better with the [otherwise useless] red filters.
Highs / Treble
Can be painfully piercing with both filters but it's never accurate, not even close to being accurate. Very fatiguing.
