Superior Sub Bass with Balance

Posted

Pros: Great controlled sub bass; Instrument realism

Cons: none the second time around

  I bought these on a whim, due to a deal too good to pass up, and with the interest to hear something with more bass presence. (Edit: I purchased these a second time from atrio.me and received them in Jan 2012)  Here is my review.   Fit and Isolation:  The Atrios are pretty light weight and when properly seated do not touch the ear.  They are very comfortable and provide very good isolation with the right tips.  Isolation is above average and they most you can get from a vented dynamic driver.   Build Quality:  The Atrios are built from a lightweight but heavy duty plastic housing and provide good strain relief on where the cables...

REVIEW: Future Sonics Atrios with the new MG7 driver

Posted

Pros: Incredible, well-controlled dynamic-driver bass with great sub-bass, superb timbre and balance in the mids and non-fatiguing, yet extended treble

Cons: Needs some burn-in like other dynamics, neutral mids and non-boosted treble are great for stage monitor sound--it's a con if you wanted a colored sig

The Future Sonics Atrios line of earphone monitors have undergone a revision, moving from the MG5 to the new MG7 dynamic drivers, improving the build quality and changing to new eco-friendly packaging. I've had a chance to hear these for two weeks now. I'm happy to give a complete overview so you can decide whether Atrios are right for you. The packaging: Future Sonics has moved to using much more eco-friendly materials. They have a new case for the earphones which is made from recycled tire rubber (and looks great). They've done a good job and I hope other companies follow their lead. On to appearance. It's easy to judge a picture, but often what looks good on a computer...

Atrio Deliver A Solid TKO!

Posted
As an avid trance & progressive listener, one area of the spectrum that can never go overlooked/undermined is the low frequencies. Having owned the entire top tier Monster series (Gold, Copper, MDT), I'll admittedly say it: I'm a basshead, loud and proud. However, that doesn't necessarily translate to me being biased towards bass-light or even bass-neutral earphones. I know a good sound when I hear one. Speaking of which, to my ears, the Atrio's deliver, and oh do they ever!   For a few days time, I took the opportunity to read up on potential competitors to my beloved MDT's. While I'm quite fond of the MDT's, they're hardly perfect; in fact, nothing ever is to be quite...

Excellent c/p IEMs

Posted

Pros: Comfortable; sleek appearance; nice stock tips; A+ bass response; friendly cord; Exemplary customer/warranty service

Cons: Tight soundstage; no nozzle foam grille of any kind to protect drivers from provided cleaning tool

I owned several pairs of the M5s (owing to the fact that I had them replaced several times through the warranty service). Never had a lick of trouble getting a replacement. I bought from an authorised reseller on fleaBay for a very decent price.   The design of these IEMs is quite pleasing to me. They are low profile, nice blue accent, sleek design. The cable is not at all fussy. The provided rectangular case is of a good size as well as quite durable. My package included a very nice assortment of tips, single through triple flange of 2-3 sizes each. Sure olives fit these IEMs as well.   I found them to be very comfortable for extended use using the stock biflanges....

REVIEW: Future Sonics Atrio MG7

Posted
Intro This is a review of the Future Sonics Atrio MG7. This model of Atrio carry’s the latest MG7 drivers (I also recently realised the "MG" in the driver names is probably the initials of FS founder, Marty Garcia LOL), which are said to be a great improvement over the previous MG5pro driver (which was one ahead of the older MG5 driver), retails for $199 but I got mine for AU$160. This puts them at somewhat upper mid-level IEMs in terms of price but in terms of sound, IME they are much higher up the scale. In fact, it is very hard to find a negative review of these IEMs, the majority of negative statements about these is fit problems. I will talk about this later.   Out of...

An extremely value for money basshead iem!

Posted

Pros: THUMPING LOW END BASS!!!, Balanced mids and highs, oh that timbre!, clear and crisp highs, capable of reproducing complicated songs, infinite others

Cons: Looks, Fit, Comfort, Durability, Fatiguing at times, Power hungry

Background This is my first time reviewing products and I hope you guys take this review with a grain of salt! I bought these last december as a replacement pair of iems after my last pair (cheapo and horrible sounding soul sl49s) broke. I had a budget of 200 and was looking for a bassy iem. I was at Stereo Electronics demoing some iems and i narrowed it down to the Atrios m5 and the shure se215. Now i know the se215 is widely praised here on head fi but i just found the Atrios sound much more natural and clearer. Fast forward 3/4 of a year and now im reviewing them. Disclaimer i do not work for futuresonics and am not getting paid to review these lovely iems.  ...
