Back in Feb 2010, something in Macworld (mag or online, I forget) led me to look into the NuForce uDAC USB amp. That shortly led me to this review.
The NE-7Ms seemed to be just what I was looking for to replace my FutureSonics EM3s (left side casing split open) while adding an inline mic for my iPhone. So I ordered a pair.
I like the sound these put out. They're no EM3s (they don't have the clean bass) and they're no ER-4Ps, but they certainly beat the Sennheiser CX300’s I’ve been getting by with since my EM3s broke down.
I consider the NE-7Ms a great value for the price ($50). I'm using them with Comply T400 foam tips.
The mic on my first set didn't work well and Future Sonics cross-shipped a replacement pair. Smooth swap, great service.
Thanks for a very helpful review, HeadphoneAddict.
P.S. Turns out I don't like taking phone calls on 'phones that remove external noise. It's just awkward, at least in public places (I don't know my voice level and I have no idea what ambient sound is going into my mic). But my next pair of 'phones will probably be Atrio or DBA-02, not the NuForce model with no mic (NE-6) as I want to step up another notch in SQ this time, back into the range I was in with my EM3s. Something like my ER-4Ps but more "fun".
