Gorilla Ears Review:

"Mankind’s greatest inventions, abridged version: the drum, the wheel, the computer, Gorilla Ears in-ear monitors.

I came to Gorilla Ears looking for a change. I’ve never cared for floor monitors. They’re cumbersome and uncomfortably loud, and even when they’re right next to me, they feel imprecise. My Gorilla Ears have fixed all of that. They have a low profile, the fit is perfect, and the sound is outstanding. They give me control of my listening and allow me to play with greater accuracy.

With Gorilla Ears, the music is wired straight to my auditory cortex. What could be better?"
