Sennheiser IE7 Appreciation Thread ~~~ - Page 7

post #91 of 817
Guys, knock some sense into me. So far, I've had about 20 hours on the IE7 and the lack of clarity (highs) is really making me wish I went for the IE8s! Seriously considering to sell these and go for them..

I know 20 hours isn't much but will 150+ hours improve the IE7 by the large of a margin? I am kind of doubtful of it.

just give them time, i felt exactly the same way with mine for the first few days. just kept thinking id made a mistake and i should have gotten teh 8's.

give them time

I agree... it is a dynamic driver... give it at least 50-100 hours.
post #94 of 817
Yeah, definitely give it more time, 20 hours is nothing lol.

It took me about 150 hours I think to really see a change. Then at 200-250 they sound amazing.

OK, you guys have sucked me in. I am ordering the IE7's today.

Before you do, you can save $$$ by buying mine. Check the link below. They are excellent phones, but mine were an impulse buy.

Wow, that is the lowest post number-to-membership time ratio I have ever seen. Anyway, my deal is a good one.

Hi guys. I really like my ie7s, but the nozzle seems to be too short and too wide. I think I can only have one or the other, but not both, if that makes sense. So I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if so what did you do?
post #99 of 817
Not sure I understand. Definitely need some explanation. The IE7 nozzles are relatively short and about as wide (circumference-wise) as an IEM can get, in fact, they are more canal phones than IEMs. Is one different than the other, if so, the end of the IE7 can snap off.
post #100 of 817
Sorry I'm not clear. I just mean I don't think my ear canals can handle something that's both short and wide, as opposed to short and thin, or wide and long.
post #101 of 817
Yeah, sometimes ear canal shape and fit can cause you to have to shed a phone, even though you like the sound. Happens to many Head-Fi'ers.

tried those tips from ebay (others also sort of worked but they were easily the best for me)

I've been pretty content with my headphones so I haven't been around. Too many other things on my plate. I ordered them for $149.99 at Newegg but thanks for the offer.
post #105 of 817
Yeah, I checked Newegg but can't seem to find that deal. Will be sending mine back to Soundearphones, I guess, and get the same price I was asking. Didn't expect their price to drop through the floor (relatively speaking). Just bad timing. Wonder if this is a one-off or a sign that the Senns are going to start crashing in price? Good for buyers.

Update: Deal is apparently over, though the IE6 is still on sale. Must have been a "half-day" sale.
