UE Triple Fi, Sleek SA6, or Shure SE 530 to pair with a zune?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm back with another question, and after a little more research, I have decided to pick up a zune, since I lack the financial resources to get an amp, and the zune has decent SQ already.

The latest question is, UE Triple fi. 10, SA6 or Shure SE 530 to go with my shiny new zune. I would like to experience my world of aural bliss ASAP, and any opinions to help me come to the correct conclusion are welcome.

I listen to mostly classical music, some rock, and a little bit of everything

I am looking for an even sound to be produced when the IEMs + zune unite. Accurate reproduction is priority, with soundstage being the next highest priority (this is why I didn't list the Ety ER4P, since I heard the soundstage was crappy)

also, is it necessary to get an amp, since I am a frequent commuter, and would not like to carry a really bulky package in the pocket of my jeans.

Also, is it safe to walk around in a crowded area with IEMs, because I can only justify the investment if they can be used when im walking in a mall/around downtown and its safe(as in I won't get hit by a car, because I didn't hear it coming).

EDIT: someone know how to stop my name from screwing up the layout of the page, the page becomes really wide after I post.

i read the comparison, and it was really informative, but im wondering if anyone has specific experience with zune 80 + any of those 3 IEMs, because I think I can't go wrong with any of them, but I'd like this to be a hit, not a hit and a miss, because my wallet can't afford to miss. It seems the Triples have more veiled/darker highs, where as the shure has really rolled off highs, and a thumpy bass, and the SA6 are really neutral. Not much has been said about how accurate the reproduction of the recordings are. I am also curious about how many people have been turned off the by the bad fit of the triples.

I'll say the same. You should ask a mod to change your user name. Using email address as user name is a very bad idea.

I have the SA6s and they work very well with the Zune80. Even better, I bump up the bass by plugging in a cheap FiiO amp. Does a nice job as a bass boost, without messing up the mids/highs.

i already asked a mod to change it, now back to the headphones, which one would be superior for presenting classical music, with accurate reproduction of the recording while still not sounding too bad with other genres of music?

SA6

Thanks for the response, but could you tell me why the SA6 would be good for the zune, and why it is better than the other two options?

Because I have those phones and it matches well with the Zune80. It's a suggestion based on my experience. Never owned the other two, so can't help you. Oh, it's also less money and will offer wireless soon.

I have the Zune 80 and the triple's and think the sound is superb mate.

I used to have the E500's with the Zune, but prefer the sound from the triple's.
