Default Fischer Audio Ceramique review

These were £10, but I got them for nothing as I had a credit from that store.

BUT..these aren't even worth nothing (if that is possible).









The earphones are perhaps the heaviest I've ever seen, additionally the nozzles are very wide and will only work with the tips provided, but - and because of the weight and size - I could scarcely get a secure fit, move slightly in any direction and the seal is gone.

When I could get a seal (albeit momentarily) the sound quality wasn't good - I'm talking bundled earbuds quality.

Also, there is no easy way to tell right from left by feel and the cord is very thin. Without question, these are the worst iems I've ever auditioned. They are just so heavy, uncomfortable and poor-sounding.

Next to Sony XBA-H1:






I ended up just cutting them up...I'll keep the jack for spares.

Dang, that's harsh! I'll be ordering a set today! I wonder what's the worst set of IEMs I've ever owned or used?
I wish I could try a set of Skullcandy Smokin' Buds again. They were my first non-bundled set. They seemed great at the time (upgraded from the old apple earbuds), but when they started falling apart I bought some Sennheiser CX200 (I think) which blew the Skullcandies away.

Bundled earbuds are better - at least they will stay in.

The Ceramique are just rubbish. On the flipside, I did get a Ramones t-shirt today for 99p, reduced from £11.

So those metal sleeves don't come off the nozzles? No wonder you can't get them to stay in. That has to make them the largest nozzle I've ever seen.

No, that's their size, very large and uncomfortable plus each earphone is so heavy.
