I got my X5s for $125 from Klipsch...and then sent them back. Coming from the ATH-CK7s, they sounded totally flat to me. Sure, superb isolation and great comfort...but lacking in bass and highs. I ended up getting the Phonak Audeo PFEs...I find them to be even more comfortable (with Shure tips), isolate just as well, have a MUCH better cable, have just as good mids, better highs, and a different kind of bass, both better and worse in some ways. I am curious as to how the...
So is there any way to get the IE8s to isolate really well? Like as well as the Klipsch X10?
Very cool. Any chance you can share what you plan to add to the review list? Anything from Klipsch? Phonak? Sennheiser IE series?
I have used both and am partial towards the Shure Olives.
Am surprised as the X5s I bought were terrible in the highs. They just sounded flat in general. I guess the X10s are substantially better?
Can you still get them for $175?
So far I have no initial concerns with build quality. The replaceable filters can only take so many changes, but that is to be expected. Otherwise, my only worry would be about the wire and where it meets the driver assembly. But that is the case with all IEMs. (The Klipsch X10s are known to break there.)
Audio-Technica ATH-CK7 for $70
I too went out and bought the Shure black foam tips (Apple Store) and found them to be the most comfortable compared to the included silicon and Comply tips. I am using the black filters. All in all, I paid some $60 less than what I had planned and more or less got 90% of what I wanted coming from the ATH-CK7s. I sometimes miss the bass of the CK7s but am happy to now have more balance, especially on the treble side. The PFEs are far more comfortable and isolate a whole...
