I read a lot about this headphones (The wire cutter, WhatHifi) and luckily all the reviews are correct about what they said.
Great value for the money, highly recommended!
Either way, the sound is great. Bass is decent. My primary gear is Beyerdynamic 990 Pro for home office and Bose Qc15 for noisy places...
I use an Aune T1 tube amp with the big headsets, and even after those this tiny thing feels just fine. (with a good player, I never use my phone/tablet with these)
The remote just doesn't feel great, but I don't use it anyway...
I come from Sennheiser CX 300 IEMs, so to my ears these are a nice step up in regards to sound quality. Considering the Senns are too bassy, I find these to be more balanced. At the beginning, my impression was they lacked a little bit of bass, but probably my ears were too much used to the CX 300s.
Also, you need to find the right fit on your ear canal to get the most off them. It takes me some time to adjust them to get the right fit. The tips are a bit flimsy compared to those on the CX 300, so that might be why I get the right fit using those with ease compared to the Beyer MMX 101's tips.
In regards to the build quality, I am not really impressed by the cable, it could be a bit thicker. But since my CX 300 have lasted more than 3 years and still kicking (even using them for jogging) I'm sure that if I treat these nicely and store them carefully in the included pouch (which could be nicer), they will also last long.
I also bought the Shure 215 at the same time, which are excellent for the price. I find the 215s to be a few notchs below my Sennheiser HD-595 (but not too far), which are full-size open cans. The Shure 215 are very balanced as well, but to my ears are better in terms of SQ compared to the Beyer 101s.
Overall they are a great buy for me because I will be using them primarily as headsets. Before, I was using my CX 300s combined with the built-in mic in my laptop and that was annoying because some times I needed to get closer to "the screen" for the other party to listen better. So I don't need to carry my full-size headsets (Sennheiser PC-151) around. As headphones only, there are other options out there of brands with more experience in the IEM department. Beyerdynamic is a recognized company in the full-size headphones category, though.
I've been on a search for an upgrade to the standard Apple earbuds for quite some time. For $79, these are a great choice. However, I don't feel like they live up to the same quality as other Beyer products.
They sound slightly muddy, but not overly bass heavy like most in ear headphones. I can't put my finger on it but there's some low mids boosted that just don't need to be. Aside from that, which isn't a deal breaker, they sound good. Just not great. But when you compare these to any other in-ear bud in the $50 - $100 range, I think you'll find these are the best sounding hands down.
The remove switch only has one button (no volume up and down), so it's only good for pausing, stopping, skipping songs, etc. It also feels a bit cheap (hollow). Although the buds themselves feel heavy and solid, this I like.
In conclusion, I like them. I was just expecting more from Beyerdynamic. All in all, you can't beat these for $79.
