Altec Lansing IM616 $39.99 shipped(SOLD OUT??10-19-07) - Page 7

post #91 of 106
I'm so confused with the Altec Lansing IM. It says its basically Ety... yet its not? Is it a branch off from Ety or are they ripping Ety's technology. I find it strange that their big thing is "were just like this other brand".

They use Ety technology, and the two companies have worked together on these. No tech stealing or anything.

If you ordered at 39.99, they will ship. They have them back in stock, at $77.99. So they do have them. If they stiff you, I would make a major complaint, because they should honor their price.

Mine came today. Not bad for $40. I had to put the foam tips on. They sounded horrible without them.

Why did you buy them, since you already have the Etys? Just curious.

I thought that for what they cost, why not give them a try? I was also curious about how they would sound compared to my 4Ps and 6is.

What's the verdict? Similar, less good?

Well, got the im616s today, and they sound pretty darn good, especially at this price point (thanks Buy.com!). With a little EQing, the bass is decent and very tight, and they sound a little richer than the ER4Ps, from what I can remember. A perfect Ety-based addition to my humble collection, which for now is complete.
