i am afraid i won't be doing any comparison as the others i have isn't even on par against it, maybe my bose OE, but that's a different thing to be compared.

at this point the ie7 sounds a little rough; let's see how it goes later
Make sure you are getting a good seal even without a good seal you will hear some bass unlike other IEMs. So try all the tips the difference can be dramatic.

It sounds a little rough at first but smooths out over time.

yah, it seems the tips that were originally on the iem package feel comfortable so i am not switching until later time; but the fit isn't the best at the moment.

Well it takes away the unnecessary, like the booming of the bass and the rough highs, and in return it gives you tight, accurate bass and shiny and controlled highs.

The fit determines the quality of sound. So use the tips that came with it that give you the best sound.

For me the medium silicone and the large hard foam tips work best.
The large foam tips are the best of the two.

i find the foam to be too stiff though, using the large bi-flanges right now and it really shows how rough the bass is, it pretty much breaks the sound(sorry again for not knowing the term), but with the right song and tips, the bass is certainly present, still muddy though, but only an hour or two right now.

I understand how bad the bass was at the first 2 hours, I almost want to get rid of it. it will get much better along with burn-in. after 100 hours it is much better and people said it will show what it got after 250 Hours. I am anticipating

oh, i am not complaining at all, since i got it for only 200CAD i am very much pleased with it

it's probably because the ie8 overshadowed ie7, but i don't think i will be upgrading anything anytime soon. while i wouldn't say it is a 200dollars well-spent, but it is much better deal than to pay for a few pairs of 70-100 IEMs on an upgrade path.

same decision i had when i chose canon 5D for portrait shots

however, if this logic persists i will have to buy a ferrari once and for all... ROFL let's hope their 355GT goes down in price by the time i need a car

I bought custom 2 at first but hate the cable. then I bought JVX FX66 to see if IEM is for me. after knowing IEM suit my need. I go ahead and get PFE, really good choice. love the crystal clear (icy) sound. then I bought IE7 which by reading Head-fi knowing it to be better bass and not too warm IEM. also a right choice. anything strong bass than IE7 probably will ruin music I listen (anime song, a lot of female vocal)

I bought all these thing from knowing nothing to 2 decent IEM in less than 2 month I don't know if I should be happy or sad finding Head-Fi.org

so long as your gf/wife isn't complaining you should be fine, or she is not wanting a pair as well :P

I am single since the day I was born, I spend all the money that I made or given to me on myself

also all my female friends have no idea what is good music and sound quality. had a Ph.D girl said my IEM is ugly and uncomfortable. if PFE is uncomfortable it is her problem not the IEM

so far the best tip on IE7 for my ear is medium single flange with T-400 foam behind the flange. the foam keep the flange in shape to seal my ear and isolate outside noise. T-400 itself has too little foam to give good seal on my ear not to mention isolation.the only draw back is some bone conduction while walking. so IE7 is my laptop IEM and PFE is for MTA Subway

I wish the new T-400 with more foam and maybe longer will come out soon
the Sennheiser stock foam is so hard that don't really form into ear shape

i find the tips don't stick deep enough into the ears; especially the bi-flanges, if they make a tri-flanges it will be so much better
post #89 of 103
their bi-flange is weird because I don't think people has equal diameter ear canal.
post #90 of 103
the bi-flanges is just too shallow for me to even keep it in place, that's why i chose the large size just to squeeze it in a little. their single tips are better than shure's grey tips though.
