Sadly let down by very poor build quality in < 5months. The R earphone back came off my first pair. Sent in for second pair, and again was let down as both backs separated exposing the internal wiring. The smooth metal on plastic without a clip of some kind is a design floor. No good having great sound if they dont last. Disappointed.
Initially very precise but quite treble-ey and thin until I added silicone foam earpieces. Then became the best sounding earphones I've used (vs Shure/high-end Sony/Sennheiser). Let down by poor build - backs of both earpices came off within 6 months - and the cord is too thin and tangles easily. Really don't feel as good as they sound.
Purchased a pair of these earphones, initial impressions of sound quality was good however the build quality is truly awful. The cable had a slight riout of the box and is so thin I know its only a matter of time before they break.
These are my first earphones costing a considerable amount ( considerable to me at £100 a pair , anyway) and not what I was expecting at all.
I've been using a pair of aJays ones for a about a year - inferior sound but will last 100 times as long.
Not too sure where to buy them is the only problem. I Tried iHeadphones UK through amazon.co.uk but what I've just received looks to be very poor quality so I've sent it back. The Sennheiser CX 300-II's I bought a couple years ago for £15 look better quality than what I received.
Now I'm chasing the up the distributor listed on the Beyerdynamic web site for where to buy them so I can be doubly certain I'm getting the real deal.

There’s a lot to like about the Eole 3, but its lean bass will doubtless be an issue for some
A system with stacks of detail, but its laid-back nature loses too much excitement for our liking
The Note 8.0 might have been a great tablet once, but now it looks outclassed and outdated
