Penon IEM [very coloured, overly warm, veiled mids + boomy, unrefined, spongy bass]

Al Capone In-Ears with a zip-up y-splitter [surprisingly won them as a part of a "Survival-Package" that's just a bunch of cheap merchandise - the stupid in-ears didn't even come with any other ear tips apart from the medium ones that were already mounted]
