from Quality sound for good priceI'm a drummer and I use these for live gigging. I bought the AKG IP2's as a backup to my Ultimate Ears SuperFI 5 Pro's and I have to say I am very impressed with the sound quality for a rather reasonably priced set of in-ears. Unfortunately my UE SuperFI's wiring broke only after brief period of using them and I have to send them in to be repaired.The IP2's are the same earphones that are included with the AKG IVM series wireless IEM systems. They are made simply, are compact, fit snug, and stay put, and are very comfortable to wear, which in itself can be an issue with many other in-ears on the market. They are not cumbersome and sound better than many of the Shure models. The cords have a molded boot where they enter the drivers so I don't believe they will ever pull out like my UE did. I doubt you'll find a better quality product on the market at this price point and I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone.

from I'm impressedI needed a pair of small earphones for in ear monitors when playing live shows and picked these up. I was surprised by how good they sound given their cost. They have a fairly smooth midrange response and don't have that high frequency "ring" a lot of other small earphones have. The bass response is maybe a tad lean but adequate given the application. I really wonder if the higher end earphones can sound much better. If you like clear sound and you aren't a basshead these are recommended.
