While many who love strong bass buy this, imo the bass is overdone. For the $14 price though it is good. I don't use my HAFX101 much though, and usually use the Panasonic RP-HJE450 instead. Yes, the HJE450 does cost more(around $23) however imo it has more detail(but not as much as the RP-HJE355, although the HJE355 has much less bass) and fits me much better than the HA-FX101. The RP-HJE450 has strong bass impact, however imo it still seems natural. The bass on the HA-FX101 seems unnatural. The RP-HJE450 has 12.5mm drivers compared to 8.5 mm on the HA-FX101. The RP-HJE450 has oval nozzles that radiate from near the edge, making it extremely ergonomic with a great fit. The plug is a right angle one, and the build quality seems great.
Would I buy the HAFX101 again? Perhaps, although I might just use it occasionally when I'm in the mood. I'm not a basshead though. Those who are true bassheads might fall in love with the HA-FX101. The HA-FX101 is much better than its predecessor the HA-FX1X.
