I havent heard many earphones but I would say the um1's (and um2's and 3's) are at or near the top because they have almost none

My IE8 has very little microphonics.

The Super-fi 5EB had NO MP at all. By design they have replaceable cords that are not directly connected to the driver so they did not have any MP. I prefer my Atrio M% over all but the EB's were better on MP.

Of those I have heard, the IE 8. No microphonics at all. What a wonderful cable.

The best I've was the Trippl.fi with the Westone ES replacement cable, an absolutely fantastic cable for ergonomics.

Westone 3. Sennheiser IE7 and IE8. I'm listening to these iem's more frequently and I barely notice any microphonics.

We're not talking about microphonics in the usual sense. With headphones, microphonics is just sound being transmitted from the cable into the headphones into your ear. There's no current generated, so the drivers aren't involved.

Braided cables worn over-the-ear seem to be best at preventing microphonics.

x5 for the IE8

Braided cables will have the least because the vibration is dissipated between the space between the cables. All of Westone products are braided.

IE8s are just so non-microphonic, it's unbelievable.

I wear UE sf5p's with westone es cables that i cut the memory wire off of. Can be worn comfortably over ear, under ear, with good isolation and no MP whatsoever.
