Bill The Ne-7m is really good for $50. I liked the Apple dual driver one for $80 more than the NE-7m. They have much better clarity. The Ne-7m have more bass if that is you cup of tea. You...

No if you hold the sleep button for a few seconds you get a slider which clearly says " Slide to Power Off". That is a complete power off. That is how the iPhone works and I am pretty sure the iPod Touch does too. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1430 It is not "deep sleep" because it does a full reboot with the...

Between those two, ignoring everything else, I'm just wondering what people think is superior overall in terms of SQ. Like he said. People who prefer the NE-7M style bassy sound signature would prefer the Turbines more. People that prefer clarity would prefer the ADDIEM. If you want shake your head bass the Turbines will...
I remember the ADDIEMs being far clearer than the Turbines. I heard the ADDIEM long before I got my Turbine. The Turbine has a lot of bass but lacks clarity. The soundstage/imaging is distorted in more ways than one. I noticed another distortion which might come from mismatched left and right. In one of the songs there is an echo mixed into add depth to the vocals. In everything but the Turbines the echo is coherent with the voice. But on the Turbines I heard the voice and...

To me the bass on the Turbines over powers the mids and the overall sound lacks clarity. I haven't heard the Custom 2 so can't offer any comparison.

The Ne-7m's colored mid range and weird imaging made me send them back. The treble was also a little too hot for me. The ADDIEMs I liked better. Better clarity but I thought the SCL4 at $80...

The fit determines the quality of sound. So use the tips that came with it that give you the best sound. For me the medium silicone and the large hard foam tips work best. The large foam tips are the best of the two.

Quote: Originally Posted by Rip N' Burn Both of them now have 300+ hours of burn in. I completely agree that the IE7's do everything better except for isolation. I expected more from the turbines after the burn in period. For the money, they still are a very good iem. The IE7's sound signature definitely makes up for the extra $ as compared to the turbines sound sig. Did you try the Comply T400 tips with the IE7's? I haven't. The nozzle looked to...
