UIEM version of Ultrasone Edition 8's: Phonak PFE 232's

UIEM version of Westone 4's: ?

UIEM version of Shure SE535: ?

 

Owned the Ed.8's, SM3 V2's, and the Westone 4R's before.

I'd say that's pretty good considering the Edition 8's are my #2 favorite headphones of all time.

Then it was a good purchase after all. Enjoy:etysmile:

 

What filter are you using?

post #2749 of 2877

Yes it was :) thanks!

 

I'm currently using the grey filters

post #2750 of 2877

I think the 232's sound best with the grey filters.

Grey filters and comply foam tips.

post #2752 of 2877

LOL, I'm not even gonna try the other filters b/c I'm already satisfied with the sound.

The soundstage of the PFE 232's truly beat the Westone 4's IMO and is on par with the SM3's. The Westone 4's are too cold and the SM3's are too smooth/warm. The PFE 232's...I love.

I exclusively now use the medium silicon tips that come with the 232. They work best for me but I also like the comply foam tips. It's easier and quicker for me to insert the 232's with the silicon tips.

I always liked a V-Shaped sound. I'm using the comply foam tips ^-^

post #2756 of 2877

Oh yeah, and I'm using a C&C BH2 amplifier connected to my Ipod touch with a Audiominor Copper LOD. When I first looked at the earphones I was like "man these look so cheap...", but looks can be deceiving ^-^

post #2757 of 2877

If you want more of a V shaped sound, try out the black filters. They push the midrange further back.  I think the green filters are junk.

post #2758 of 2877

I'll just throw the green filter away then LOL

post #2759 of 2877

Seeing as Phonak have withdrawn from the IEM game I would keep hold of any filters :tongue:

post #2760 of 2877

Seriously impressed with these IEMS. Wasn't expecting much but got ALOT in return. Totally worth it.

If anybody owns the Ultrasone Edition 8's and wants an IEM that shares the same sound signature and is technically on-par with the Ed. 8's, get these.
