I am pretty sure every one ever heard IE8 would be thrilled for the soundstage they present. I got ultrasone hfi 780 here, it surely extent wider in term of soundstage, but it is unbeatable for how portable IE 8 is.

To see who is king of soundstage in IEM, I like to buy a tri fi 10 pro to compare soundsatge with.

i should add my opinions about the senns versus the fx500, atrio and turbine when i spend about a week more with these to duncan's thread.

Of course! There's not enough reviews yet, though toughnut's one was very thorough and sounds promising, so long as the mids don't smack me in the face, 'cos I'll smack them back

They're the ones I'm using with them. The JVC foamies are a little too small for me, and the Senn foams isolate better and fill out the sound a little more, because they're bigger.

i am noticing the same thing. the senn foam is a bit bigger and has a rivet in the middle for the flanged lip of the senn phone. funny, i am reminded so much of a dt770 which is one of my favourite closed cans minus the somewhat tweaky treble. the ie8 is a unique phone.

hard to say what i would choose though. the victor is such a good product at the price though... i don't think i would pay over 300 for the senn

Still burning these in.... the upper mids and treble were way to forward out of the box. The bass was nice, but I'm not sure I'd say it's better than IE8s. It's a softer bass... will have to listen more soon.

EDIT: yeah.. i don't think i like these. my ears are way too sensitive for the sound these produce. very crisp, clear, nicely presented, great soundstage (forward and to the sides, all around), very nice sounding bass..... but the upper mids and treble are too much for my sensitive ears.

up for sale they go!

kloan-
Let them burn in longer before you post them FS. Being dynamic, they will take a bit of time, and may evolve quite a bit. That treble could soften up. I learned my lesson the hard way with the IE8's, selling the first pair off too early. I wound up buying them a second time and they really changed. I love them this time now.

oh bastards! Don't convince me even more to buy these!
post #116 of 183
wait a bit kiwi. that is always best. they will only get cheaper or, as people realise they don't want that sound, but the next newest thing, you will get them even cheaper!

hmm, you think it'll make a difference that much? with the IE8 the treble came out more.. i dunno if the treble can be tamed so much from burn in that i'd like them.. i didn't hear any change at all after 24 hours.

I just got my pair today, and I agree, very harsh out of the box. Time to exercise some patience, burn them in, and experiment with tips. Soozieq says that the Senn foamies are very good with them, so I'll give that a try in a little bit here.

Lemme know your results!

I think I'll keep em burning in for now.. not like I'm in any hurry to sell them anyway. The foamies that are included do tone down the high end a little bit, but still not quite enough. I also think the bass isn't nearly as impactful as the IE8, which is a shame because I was counting on these to satisfy my crave for intense deep bass.

Since you still have your IE8, let me know how you find the bass compares, because I am going by memory.

don't the victors come with their own foamies? the same type? i thought they were great, but dampened the trebles too much with the fx500. i loved the ety foam (again, i know, again) with them.

as for softer bass of the victor, i think it is probably the fact that the bass is focused on the lower end of the spectrum (which is not as energetic) while the senn is focused on mid to high bass.
