Microsonic Music IEM's "NEW?"

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I don't know why this keep happening to me? I found this new IEM co. during a search (HERE).

Interesting that they have three models at the same price point. Kind of convenient too. Could be nice if they sound good, though they seem to be geared more towards musicians than casual listeners.

I wonder how much their custom monitors are ..... ?

I have sent them an e-mail. The wire connection looks rather bulky and unsightly. Not a very smooth look.

The wire connection is detachable so it has to be more "bulky". I have the Westone cable for which the connector is the same size. These earphones are quite small as you can tell from the tip size as well that connector.

Those connectors are dwarfed by my SF3's and are not by these phones. The connection looks durable as it goes inside the housing as opposed to UE where the connector on the cable goes over the housing. This is how UE should have designed their universals. They would not have had those problems with them coming apart at the connector.

The swivel nozzle is quite nice. I know my canals go upward also which can be achieved with these. Also, the problem of wearing over or under the ears with angled tube is solved. You can wear them either way and just swivel the tips to angle the appropriate way, no cable swap necessary.

I'm tempted to try 'em with the Westone cable and some Shure black foams.

I suspect they might all be basically the same headphone just tuned differently. I wonder if they're single, double or triple armature?

Interested to hear impressions on the EPIC JC's...

i had a chance to get hands-on with the microsonic in-ears at NAMM last week.

the company is one of the older hearing aid companies out there -- in fact, the owner told me that her father was the one who invented the silicone impression method used today for casting of earmolds.

all of their products are single-driver, with hope to release a dual-driver sometime soon. they're relatively new to the music market.

hopefully i'll have a chance to listen to their products soon.

I like their website, very professionally looking. However, $199 isn't the most attractive price for single armature these days.

The most interesting thing about their IEM is, the nozzle is actually swingable - possibly a plus in the fitting department.

I own a set

I posted a response during the time of NAMM show which is when I purchased a pair of Microsonics JC series. It is a single driver and it had the flatest response of the 3 which are available.

This is what I was looking for(guitarist)

It is not bulky all. and the swivle nozzle that they have makes the fit the best universal around. excellent isolation. no complaint what-so-ever.

My fav. to date

considering that most armature IEM´s have armatures made by the same company, its not very hard to see them poping up now that IEM´s are gaining popularity,

I got this response from my inquiry:

Hello

Thank you for your inquiry submission to Microsonic Music.

Microsonic Music now offers only a single driver. We use balanced armature technology in each one of our monitors. There are three different models to choose from because the balanced armature inside is geared toward three different types of listeners. We are currently working on our dual drivers and hope to launch these towards the end of 2008!

To get fitted for our custom monitors we recommend you to please visit one of our preferred dealers in your area. On our website there is a link that will help you locate a dealer near you. The cost of the custom monitor is $375.00.
