Scosche IEM856MD Reference In-Ear Monitors with TapLINE III Remote & Microphone Black



The IEM856md embodies the absolute best of in-ear headphones. The source of power for the IEM856md begins with the quality of the drivers. Featuring both a dynamic driver designed to handle low frequencies and a precision balanced armature driver for treble ranges, the IEM856md captures both ends of the sound spectrum with dedicated accuracy and attention. Further enhancing the sound quality of the IEM856md are the digitally designed enclosures optimized to create the most airspace and allow for the free movement of the drivers and the air they push for a richly textured and realistic sound imaging. To ensure a flawless connection, the IEM856md is equipped with a 24k gold-platted mini stereo jack.

Apart from its remarkable sound reproduction the IEM856md is entirely at your command with the tapLINE III control and mic. Compatible with iPod and iPhones, the tapLINE III allows users to play and pause, skip through your playlist, adjust volume and even answer phone calls with the push of a button. Moreover, the tapLINE III is compatible with Siri.

Overall, very few in-ear monitors provide users with such a broad range of capabilities and tool.

2 out of 5 eggsVolume controls stop working

Pros: Design is modern. The number and sizes of air adapters provided is also good. They feel solid and well made. Didn't know anything about this manufacturer but the price was right so I took a chance. I liked these headphones, for the first two weeks.

Cons: Then the volume control stopped working, for no reason. They were not stepped on or driven over with the family car. Nor did they go through the wash. They were working one day then the next day they weren't. I just don't understand what happened.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Ear Buds Ever

Pros: Loud, crisp, precise sound. Very sturdy construction. Well equipped with accessories. Free app available from Scosche.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: New egg saved me at least $50 on these great monitors. They sell for $95 -$200. I got a great deal on excellent ear buds.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but not stellar.

Pros: Multiple driver setup at a very reasonable price. Lots of great accessories.

Cons: Heavy, especially the cable. Not built as well as expected. Sound frequencies feel somewhat unevenly represented and lack the proper tuning to resolve the weaknesses in both drivers.

Other Thoughts: The dynamic drivers in these are not good enough to handle deep bass, and the BA are tuned for mids and highs, but come off as being somewhat overdone. The sound isn't exactly bright despite that. Some frequencies feel under represented. Seems like the drivers are not as good as hoped and the tuning and crossover is also wanting.

5 out of 5 eggsLOUD, Great!

Pros: Great balance of bass and voice, VERY well made, and sturdy wiring. LOUD! Good fit. Great iPhone controls.

Cons: I got a great deal of $40, but they are usually pricey. Wiring is sturdy, but that makes it heavier.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Crystal clear mids/highs
Deep lows
High quality material
Great control/mic that works flawlessly with iphone
Best cord I've ever seen on a set of headphones
Comes with awesome magnetic leather pouch & a lot of different sized cups
Bought for $40 which means I almost got it for free

Cons: Zero

Other Thoughts: For $40 I am absolutely blown away. This put pretty much all previously owned headphones to shame including Klipsch S4i & Monster Turbines

5 out of 5 eggsMy ears hurt

Pros: - Loudest headphones I've ever used at the $100 range

Cons: - Highs either start to get mashed or
- So loud, my hearing is probably damaged after an hour of use, 5/5

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice sound quality, highs and mids are crisp and clear.. not like the cheapie ones. The base is not as deep as I would like but good enough. It works great on my ipad, iphone 4, and my android HP touchpad. I'm rating it 5 stars because it is a good product and works as stated on the box (apple products). It did not say it will work on android products.

Cons: It does not work on my android Moto X, only the left ear has sound. The middle button does start and stop the song. I need to use the included adapter for sound to be heard on both ears, adapter looks weird since the mic jack is hanging loose, it is unsightly and I won't use it when I'm out in the street. Again, it's a con for me but just to be fair I will reiterate that the product does not say it is android compatible.

Other Thoughts: My V-MODA Remix Remote In-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone with 3-Button Apple® Control works fine on the Moto X. Yes, the button's don't work but at least I can hear with both ears. Just a bit of info in case others with MotoX were planning to buy this.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat IEMs but...

Pros: 1.Good audio quality for $60 - good bass and good highs with no distortion at high volume
2. Cable does not tangle
It somehow works for Android phones (can hang up or take calls using the provided remote)
3. Lots of accessories
4. Good microphone

Cons: 1. I wish it came with foam tips. The XL tips do not provide a good ear seal.
2. Because of the big driver size, other tips would not fit.

Other Thoughts: For $60 they are a good quality pair of earphones.

4 out of 5 eggsDisappointing, Poor Bass Quality.

Pros: Very Clean and Crisp Sound. Nice Cable Length and they look very well built. I gave these a 4 simply because of how clean they sound.

Cons: They advertise a frequency range of 15hz - 30khz. I find that hard to believe. However, I would believe 30hz-30khz because that's what it sounds like to me, I tried several different earbud sizes hoping it would bring out the low end. I swapped in my old headphones in the middle of a song and was blown away how different they sound. The best way I can describe these headphones is that it's like listening to music without a subwoofer...

Other Thoughts: My Hammerheads blow these out of the water in the low range. I picked these up on promo for $60 which is basically the same price. Honestly, if I was a fan of mids and highs these things would be awesome. Absolutely never would I think these headphones are worth the advertised $150-200 and I question their value at $60 because my listening preferences. Since I'm a fan of bass and these don't have it, they are going back.
