“The Road to the ACS Encore You do not often hear about ACS, an English company that makes hearing protection as well as in ear monitors. However, they are one of the few companies that make IEMs using silicone. A few years ago, when I wanted to venture into custom IEMs, being concerned about the discomfit and possible fit issues of acrylic customs, I had consulted Claire of Jaben...” --Kiats
“ I've tried out several pairs of in-ear phones and never got used to the feel of them. These are much more inviting straight away, as several earpads of different sizes are included. I found my size and was off to the races. The cable is a bit short, and I usually have to bring the included extension cable along with me on my commute. This is not a problem, just an...” --phallumontis
“I bought these last summer during a visit to Taiwan. I had hoped to buy a replacement Audio-Technica CKM500 (which broke) but they have been replaced with the CKR5 which are a bit of a let-down with its bloated bass and congested soundstage. After trying out various headphones, the salesperson suggested the AH-C560, a mid-range Denon IEM released in 2010. Although they have been considered...” --FYLegend
Denon’s new $249 AH-C300 may be the biggest, bassiest in-ear monitor in headphone history. Each of the IEM’s seemingly bulky earpieces has one of Denon’s patented Double Air Compression Drivers. It’s an arrangement with dual 11mm drivers, both firing at each other into a chamber that vents directly to your ear. A miniature control wheel gives the same functionality as on...
“ I looked around for a review on these and didnt find many, so bought a pair and heres what i found out. - Nice build quality - Good comfortable fit - Worst cable design I have ever seen (wtf were they thinking?!) - Easy to be driven - Extremely well defined mids & highs (these are not laid back and softsounding!) - Good soundstage...” --fabiosouzajr

“ The Denon AH C250 - it's like a pretty gold ring that doesn't fit every finger. Yes, it's good. Quite good. Yet the likability is highly dependant on what it's best at and what it doesn't do great. This particular IEM, while mostly neutral were it not for some noticeable lack of energy in the upper notes, is geared towards audiophiles rather than...” --redeyeguy
“DOI: I don't get to listen to new gear a lot so I may not be any use at answering questions about comparisons to anything other than my own stuff (which may or may not be considered esoteric). I was (and am) a full-size hi-fi person so my tastes in this will clearly colour what I look for in head-fi. I grew up playing instruments and singing in a choir so I tend to value realism of tone for...” --Docjitters
