I bought these when they first were released. I was curious because I have a few other IEM's from Advanced (M4, Model 3, Evo X, and 747). The ceramic housing is interesting, they look like those shiny "rocks" found in floating candle holders. They're initially cool-to-the-touch but warm up pretty quickly. The wrapped wire is thin but very plyable and quiet. I use them with the provided foam tips, which are okay but not as nice as Comply. The sound is pleasant and not fatiguing, which I think is the aim of the tuning. I don't listen to a ton of podcasts but I did listen to some streaming sportscast and these smoothed out the low-quality streams. I've found more detailed IEM's like the M4 or Model 3 really accentuate the noise artifacts in highly compressed streams like TuneIn or Pandora. These are fine for casual music listening, like on the bus or maybe while doing another activity. There isn't anything offensive about the sound, but nothing spectacular either. However for $22 this is a pretty good deal. The normal direct price of $29 is a little to close to vastly superior wired Model 3 from Advanced ($40).

How comfortable are they? They look like they have a very low profile which reminds me of the S2000.
I'll give this a go because I'm curious about Adavanced's products and the shipping cost is low (unlike many drops).
So these are IEMs that fit like earbuds?

These are just another IEM, they look comfy and the ceramic housings are classy, but apart from that they're no different than any other cheap IEM.
Can someone explain to me what a "micro-dynamic" driver is?

In simple terms: it is a specialized driver that is very small and suited for an IEM. While IEM drivers are naturally very small, micro drivers at smaller still (typically less then 6mm). It sounds fancier then it really is.
chesteryho
yeah, it basically just means "tinier driver" as its name implies. They don't sound better because of that, obviously.
"specifically tuned to keep vocals clear and forward, which makes it ideal for listening to podcasts." " And thanks to the slightly V-shaped sound signature with a slight boost in the midrange" ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? forward vocals are never V shaped Massdrop, but some v-ish shaped headphones have clear vocals (like dt880) I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you mean the vocals take a slight backseat but are clear and discernable, not being as V shaped as most iems in this range. confirm?

I bought these direct from Advanced. For the price I find them to be a good value. They have slightly forward mids and treble with lighter bass. Vocals have nice natural sound. Treble is smooth and balanced. Bass has nice tone but isn't impactful and thumping. Details are good. The soundstage is surprisingly wide sounding with nice air and openness. Fit and finish is nice, pretty to look at, comfy in the ear. For the price they are good.
No it was another, with a silver body and braided cable, around 35-40 dollars. Very sibilant and literally no bass to the point they're quite boring. edit: I checked their site they stopped selling them too
