Just got my R6 replaced because the Klipsch logo text started fading after only a month of use. Kind of annoying...
I'm not sure if I'm going crazy here or not. But I recently tried out and briefly reviewed the Klipsch R6M. I ordered a second one with the intention of returning the first because the remote was acting funky on my original. So I open up this second one, without burning in, and it sounds completely different than my original one. I've been doing some A/B testing between the two, and the sound signature is really pretty different. My original pair has a boomy bass with the...
Just got a pair of the R6's and I'm actually quite impressed. But like every earphone I've tried it's not perfect. (klipsch x11, s4, senn ie800's, jbl synchros s200, akg k376)  As someone who plays percussion I have deep appreciation for detail & accuracy. I want a snare drum to sound like a snare drum. I want cymbal crashes to sound like cymbal crashes. But anyway, you get the point, lets talk about the pros of this earphone: - The overall soundstage is improved compared...
Hi all, I'm looking for an IEM that: - Has a large, accurate, and clear soundstage - Has a decent amount bass (I'm a bit of a basshead, no lies) - Goes directly in ear, I'm not a fan of the over-the-ear style - Is comfortable & lightweight    I do not plan on using these earphones with an amp as I'm always on the go. So my source will likely be my HTC M8 or Macbook Pro. Microphone + controls are also a plus but not necessary.      IEM's I've been considering: -...
I have both the iPhone 5s and the HTC One m8 and they really do sound quite different with my ie800's...Not too sure which ones I prefer but the iPhone does seem to have more clarity from what I can tell so far.
So today I'm returning back the Klipsch x11i. Can't say I was too impressed with the quality of the sound bat all. In fact I couldn't even tell much of a difference between the klipsch and my standard apple earpods. The difference between them was minimal. The ie800 however blew both of them away in that sense. I'm also crossing off the SE 846's since I'm not really a fan of the over the ear style. I like something light and goes directly in my ear like the ie800's.
Kind of an odd question..but are you able to put the SE846 directly in the ear like the ie800's? Or must you always wrap it around your ear?
I did look into them. Looks like there is some debate as to whats better the ie800's or shures se846. I could be wrong but they look pretty uncomfortable compared to the ie's. Plus I'd be paying $300 more for them, I don't see any discounted prices anywhere
I'm all down for further recommendations given my preferences stated in my OP. Like I said I got these IE800's for around $700 so I wasn't paying 1k for them. But the klipsch x11's just didn't cut it for me. (Despite liking the comfortable feel)
I don't have the budget to keep both unfortunately. But I did get both of them in the mail.    I didn't do any "burning in" of either earphones so my impressions are straight from out of the box. In terms of comfort both of them are really comfortable in my opinion and offer a decent, maybe a slight edge to the x11i in terms of seal. I can both wear these for multiple hours without being bothered. (Comfort is one of the key aspects as to why I liked these two earphones.)...
