I will state that from the IEMs I own/have owned I generally prefer dynamic drivers to balanced armatures for metal. Make sure you know what you're getting into before spending lots on the Westones or UEs.
I actually just sold my 4.Ais because I thought they weren't good with metal. Then again I don't listen to exactly the same stuff you do. I'm more into thrash/speed and older heavy metal, so that's something to keep in mind. To me the Heirs got kind of stressed with fast music and really did much better with slower stuff, preferrably acoustic. But that's my opinion. For metal I much prefer the Vsonic GR07 MKIIs and Ortofon e-Q5s I've since purchased. They have no problem...
  I had the MTPCs for a while but sold them when I got the JVCs. I didn't compare them that much to each other, but to me the main difference was that the Monsters just sounded a bit muddy after using the JVCs. Like that infamous veil had been placed over the music removing some details all over the spectrum. It's not that the Monsters are bad, it's just that the JVCs are better. To me at least.   On the other hand I had an easier time getting a good seal with the...
I got my pair yesterday and to me these are the real deal. IMO they make a great showing next to my other IEMs like the FX700s, Heir 4.Ais et. al. Not saying they're "better" or "worse" than those 'phones, just saying I can enjoy the MH1Cs on the same level. Also, they are really comfortable in my years and I can get a good seal without effort. And I love J-cords, so there.     At $22 this may well be my best audio purchase ever. Again, this is all in my opinion....
Ok, the time has come to check out some new stuff. So I'm putting up two of my IEMs for trade.   -----   First we have the awesome Heir 4.Ais. They are really, really, really good. Unfortunately they don't really show their best with the type of music I listen to 80% of the time (i.e. 80s Thrash metal). They're just too revealing for those types of recordings. Throw on some Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones or similar and they will blow you away though. Probably the best...
Well, I've had my IE8i cable for a few years (ordered it back when this thread was started actually) and it still works fine after many hours of listening and many times of being put in my coat pocket. Of course, my IEM cables never seem to break unlike those of many others, so YMMV I guess. But there shouldn't be anything horribly wrong with the quality of it at least.
I bought these a little less than two months ago, and then I bought a pair of JVC FX700s. Since I already have a pair of IE8s I figure that's enough with the fun sounding dynamics already. And since these don't work that well with my Samsung phone they are the ones to leave. Great pair of IEMs though, only losing out to the FX700s by the slightest of margins IMO. Take this chance to get your hands on a great headset for your iPhone. Perfect for listening when you don't...
I remember a few of the names in this thread...   I've been around through the years, but other things have taken my time for the most part so there hasn't been much posting. Never lost my interest in good reproduction of good music though, and IEMs are something I just can't get enough of it seems. So I'll probably stick around for another eleven years to see what happens.
Thanks! Don't know why it didn't show up for me when searching...
I can't find one of these on eBay. Could someone please post a link to a seller? Thanks!
