N40 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional These are a stunning earphone without a doubt. Right out of the box with an hour or so of run in time they produce a smooth and detailed sound, namely in combination with a decent DAC (AQ Dragonfly Red makes them sing so sweetly), and they are very comfortable. The only con I would say is that the cable it a bit too short - a few more inches at least would make a big difference. Hopefully some replacements/options will be available as accessories at some point in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and accurate I bought the N40 a couple months ago and have time to really break them in. The highs are clear but not taxing, mids are warm and robust, and the low ends definitely can produce but are not overwhelming. They have an overall very pleasant frequency response. They aren't made for reference but enjoying Hi-Res music and being immersed. However, they really shine with a good DAP and Amp. They really shine with a good DAP and Amp. I use a fiiox5 gen 3 with them. The one flaw I've had is the original cable, without the controls, have malfuntioned on the right side causing and intermittent connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed, Great buy I am very happy with the n40. Resolution is great across the entire frequency, but a good source is paramount. This is a case of "garbage in garbage out" You can listen to your phone through the N40, but these are for more serious listening. You benefit from a high resolution player and amp, or an external DAC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good sound quality but the inbox cable is not good The sound is amazing. It have clear backgrond sound and the sound stage is pretty good. If you upgrade the cable it's sound quality are improve a lots because the in-box cables are not good at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just WOW! I bought it few weeks ago. After break in and a new pair of ear foam (for better comfort and noise isolation) they sound Amazing. Base is tight, a lot of detail but less sound stage than my AKG 702. One of the best earbuds you can buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good earphones but have to pair with decent dac I own these pair for about 1 month and I love them. Treble is bright and clear but not harsh, Mid is detailed, vocal is a little bit foward, Bass is compact yet powerful and SoundStage is a bit wilder than common In-ear. But to get the best of them you need a decent dac (I use dragonfly red) the sound is not so good when played directly from phone or PC.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from custom sounds? why would anyone need custom sound mod's- I seriously don't understand this? Studios cost in the millions, MIxed on wire flat speakers!Then mastered on some of the best speakers on the planet, so just make a wire flat speaker or close to, so you hear exactly what was produced.

Do the detachable cables on the N40 use a standard MMCX Connector on the headphone end? I'd like to try a longer cable from a competitor that seems like it would work better with my In Ear Monitor system.

Asked by: jdhans815
Yes, the detachable cable does use a standard MMCX connection.

Does this earphone has noise cancelling ?

Asked by: Saravanan
Unfortunately, the N40 does not feature a noise cancellation option, it does have three customizable tuning filters that enable bass, mid or high frequencies to modulate directly into the ear.
