Focal Sphear earphones
The Sphear earphones from Focal have great awards to back up their great sound. Hifidelity rated them best product of 2015. What HiFi gave them 5 out of 5 stars and they received the HiFI Choice Recommended status. An earphone/in-ear that truly achieves Hi-Res status. The design up close shows incredible attention to detail and the fit and comfort are great. Plenty of reviews highlighting how super comfortable the Sphear are for short or long listening periods.
The cable has a multi-function inline controller which works on iPhone, Android and Windows phones (although next and previous functions might not work on all Android phones).
Focal will tell you they have designed these like a home HiFi loudspeaker. The driver is a 10.8mm electrodynamic driver backed by an acoustic chamber port and fronted by a bass-reflex system connecting to a stainless steel grill.
A strong mid-range give these a striking sound signature and the bass reflex system gives fantastic extended Bass and bottom end. From the bottom to the top these are a really wonderful sounding earphone, as the reviews attest.
