Phonak releases new Audeo earphones | Crave, the gadget blog - CNET

Has anyone had these, and if so could you mini-review them for me in here?


All I know is:

-very comfortable design (according to them)
-customizable filters to change sound signature (kind of like SA6, but simpler)

How's the soundstage? Also, is there anything better for the price (IEM's)? And is the sound cold and analytical, or does it at least have some amount of fun? And detail-wise?
Soundstage is rather good for an IEM. They use an edge-firing custom armature (similar to the new Super.Fi 5 v2), I assume that's what makes the soundstage better than a direct-firing one.

At that $130 price range you won't find anything as precise and detailed as the Phonaks, I'm pretty sure about that. The Ety ER-6 sound like a muddy mess in comparison.

Yes, they're "fun" to a certain extent, considering they're quite analytical, maybe even more than the q-Jays.

Thanks, they sound like my cup of tea! Good for complex music, rock, etc?

They're good for complex music, unlike the q-Jays. I didn't find any music that makes the Phonaks sound compressed/muddy/strained. They're not made for Hip Hop, Drum'n'Bass, or similar stuff, but they're excellent for Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Howard Shore, Danny Elfman, Miles Davis, etc...

dfkt, what's the 4 connector plug for? Does it have a mic?
post #11 of 18
Yes, they sent me the headset version with mic... but it's also available as a normal headphone.
