Futuresonics Atrio M5 - Page 8

post #106 of 2359
the RSA amps seems to be the amps of portable amps, they are however well out of my price range. Thinking about the supermicro, good sound and amazing size. Would this work well with the M5's? I know that they are not as general as like the RSA, and made to work best on ER4's or something.

I forgot to check eBay for these! I ended up canceling my order with Amazon in favor of idealsound.

Just another positive vote for idealsound on eBay. I just got my Shure black foam tips, and shipping only took 3 days! I got the small size, and the fit is great. -CK

But I might want to step up to the m5s if I can sell my Vibes and PK2s, so my out of pocket is low. After trying hard, I just don't care for the Vibe sound any longer. I just need two good sets of headphones, and the Etys are fine for set #1.
I believe that they do fit, yes. You can take a look at this post here for pictures of someone else's SofterWear on their m5.

Mine should be here on the 30th. Can't wait.

Now I'm interested in the Shure foamies. How do I know what size to get?

wait until you get your M5's and try on their foamies. See what size you are then order shure ones.

Hi I'm new around here and thought that folk around here could help me out!

since I bought my iRiver H140 a couple of years back, believe it or not I've stuck with the stock headphones...primarily becasue they get stuck in my bag or pocket a lot and I don;t have to worry about damaging them too much as they aren't exactly an expensive bit of kit...


but lately I've become more bothered about the quality of sound I'm listening to and the sound separation....I guess 'cos I'm listening more carefully to stuff my band has recorded!

so anyways time for an upgrade! I do quite abit of travelling by air so noise isolation without a huge pair of cans on my head is important. I don;t want to spend hundreds of pounds either.

I came across the Goldring GX200 and then the Atrio M5
I know the goldring's are fairly new, but I wondered how they compare to the M5 - anyone got amny expereince of both?

the best review I found was of the GX200 was here
http://www.avforums.com/forums/showt...ighlight=gx200

these forums only mention the GX200 in passing - is that becasue they are too much at the bottom end of the market for you guys?

in the UK the M5 will cost me about twice as much as the GX200
GX200 about £50 and M5 a little under £100

any opinions and help apprecaited!

If you have experience with foamies and the standard size has worked for you then I would expect the mediums will work. If you don't, I agree with mho and wait until you have your M5s since they come with 2 different sizes of foamies.

I am so tempted to get these. I've been a V.Moda Vibe user for some time now and have been really happy with them as far as the sound goes. The design and build however, is terrible.

So, I may be ordering these soon. I'll let you guys know what I think of them in comparison to the vibes if I do.

I was also in this similar situation, i couldnt find much info regarding the gx200, and it seems that they are Goldrings first IEMs, so i just went for the M5's.
You will not be dissapointed with the M5, and i think that they will better than the gx200 as like you say they do cost twice the price. If you got the money to spend on the m5's then get them, no-one here has yet been disappointed with their M5 purchase.

That is indeed the million dollar question. Seems no one has heard both the Atrio m5 and the UM2 yet...

thanks mho that was my gut feeling but I've no real evidence to back it up

and price is not always indicative...compare m5 to more expensive shure for example

Just picked up a pair of M5s, and there is a guy on ebay selling them in a "best offer" auction. He has them for $159.99 buy it now, but I got a pair for $130 plus $10 S&H. Says authorized FS dealer, and a spotless feedback record (mega seller). Just search ebay to see if he has any left. He's the only one selling them, which seems weird. But at a $60 discount, who cares? I wonder if FS will drop the price (like the did with the original EM3s, from $149 to $99). Oh well, didn't want to wait.
