Animagus – Twister6

“I think Lime Ears have a bit of a hit on their hands with the beautifully styled universal flagship Pneuma.”

Linus – Headfonia

“Model X – its big, bombastic, and spacious sounding.”

George Dobrescu – Audiophile Heaven

“Model X is quite possibly the most versatile and accomplished IEM I know of in its price range”
