UE Super.fi 5 Pros not bassy enough compared to Senn's CX300

post #1 of 8

I really hope my Superfi.5 Pros isn't faulty, but for some reason when I did a test with Sennheiser's CX300 the CX300's produced a lot more bass than my Pros. My mp3 player is Creative Zen Micro and the earphones were connected to my FiiO amp. I do have a good seal on both earphones, with my Pros using Shure Olives. I do noticed that the Pros seems to be equal on all levels and the CX300 being more boomy on the bass. In order for me to enjoy the bass, I have to set the volume at a higher level but that level makes my ears hurt. I really thought the Pros were bassy enough, I guess I didn't know how much a bass head I am. The type of music I listen to is Progressive Trance.

Is this problem normal? I tried the EBs before and although they were great, I couldn't get a good fit even with the Shure Olives. I have heard that the Atrio's M5 can deliver just as good bass as the EBs, maybe better. Can someone recommend me a good set of in-ear canalphones? I'm not sure if I should just sell my Pros and get something else instead. I am planning to get the Cowon D2 someday, maybe that'll help with their Mach3Bass setting.

super.fi are armature based and imho, the bass quantity shouldnt be compared to dynamic driver. dynamic driver capable of pushing a lot more air than armature.

se530 and um2 are the only bass monster i know in armature iem.

Trance is a basshead genre, and even though the Superfi 5 Pro is pretty bassy I'm not surprised if you want more. So go for the Atrio M5, they are probably what you are looking for.

CX300 has a lot of bloated bass, so most IEM in comparison will sound bass light.

Ah no wonder , I did noticed that the bass of the CX300 is bloated. Too much where it blows the details away.

i thought the super fi 5 pro were much bassier than the cx300, giving much bigger slam and impact, they hit hard, the cx300 dont exactly hit hard with slam but instead tend to just muffle.

Disagree totally. It's bass and treble with few mids. Rock is primarily mids for example.
