Looks really stylish. There's a white line on the left and a red line on the right so as to make for easy identification of left and right, and this gives a favorable impression.
Feel of the fit
I use a Sony hybrid, it's a regular canal type.
It's not an excuse, but I'd say there would be very few people who would say no to these.
It's not that there are none, but they tend to be bogged down in bass tones. In particular, with sound sources with a large number of tones, the high hat is blurred and hard to hear at times. But actually, sound from wind and string instruments such as violins and saxophones is emitted at a level that is rare for a product in this price range.
These are also slightly bogged down in bass tones. But they're not hard to hear; rather, for a product in this price range, they don't have a confined feel that reverberates inside your head but make for easy listening. There's almost no blur.
I was surprised at the volume when I first listened. Considering the price, I guess it can't be helped that they are a little too much bass.
This is perhaps its best characteristic. It has the kind of width that has you thinking, "You've definitely created these with this firmly in mind". It's not just wide; it's a natural sound field with nothing strange about it. Orientation is also good.
Slight awkwardness in timbre is covered by the sound field. There's an obvious affinity with the source sound. Being specific, J-pop and rock are disappointing. On the other hand, jazz and classical music are really good. In particular, violin solos are outstanding. And for some reason, step recording is excellent. Other products for this price and with this kind of bass tend to be created to suit rock and club music; the sound with these is just the opposite.

It may be deemed a bit weird (?) but I bought Adagio II and III as a set.
Has truly strong bass tones!!
There's absolutely no need for DAP bass boost function.
This is the kind of powerful sound that I searched for when I was younger, in my teens and twenties.
I think these would be perfect for use with dance music such as today's EDM or with the old Eurobeat.
But since middle and high tones seem a little hidden, I think that an equalizer is necessary for fine-tuning depending on the genre of music you are listening to.
Cost performance is great, but if you can pay a little bit more, then I recommend III with its wider sound field and high frequencies.
Also, with both II and III, the earpieces deteriorate quickly, and after about a year, they easily come out.
Maybe it's because I use larger earpieces, but when I take the earphones out, the earpieces sometimes are left behind in my ears. At such times, I use the new E type earpieces, and they don't come off at all. Sound quality also improves, so I think it's a good idea to change over to the E type when you by the product.
Compared to Heaven V Aging, sound feels small, and it was necessary to turn up the volume.
