Interesting that you find the MX460s lacking in bass. The MX460s aren't bassy by any means, but they do put out enough provided that the fit is good and that the foams are used. The MX760s certainly have more bass, definitely more than neutral.

I should also remind you that the MX360, as stated in the review, sounds to me like a bassier MX500, so perhaps you could try those out as well as they should be cheap in your neck of the woods...
I'm using the foamies. Maybe its not bass, but something is missing. I'm coming from the stock buds from the A818 (EX85) so maybe that an unfair comparision. Those buds broke which why I'm now on the hunt for replacements. I'm not looking for extra bass, I got rid of my CX300's for that reason. The MX460 cost me €20 ($30) in the shop next door. I think I'll move on to the 760's. I'd like to try the EX90LP's but them seem to be gone everywhere. (or fake). The new Sonys I just don't like the look of. They stick out way too far.

Unfortunately, I have not tried the Yuins, but I can point you to ClieOS' http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f103/e...und-up-441400/ which is an excellent and concise comparison review, though he hasn't tried the PK2s either.

Speaking strictly of the Sennheiser buds, I find that the MX760 sounds great even unamped. The MX90 on the other hand could use some extra power, so naturally it sounds better amped.


thanks for the nice link about the earphones...my next question would be is it the mx760 comparable with the px100 or 200? i know that they come from different segment, but what i'm looking for is the portability such as travelling purpose

For me the MX500 and even MX460 are better than the PX100 as they don't have the over the top bass of the PX100's. If you like a lot of bass, you'd prefer the PX100's over these buds. I've yet to try the MX760's os can't give an option there.

I got the MX760's, a first impression is they are simply better versions of the 460's. I think (from memory) the Sony EX85s are better than the MX760's though. I picked up a set of MX90VC and MX360. But based on the MX760's I'm not expecting huge differences. I think I might return them unopened and get a IEM instead. I'd get another EX85 but the've gone quite expensive. More than the MX90VC's.

I know that both Fungi and |joker| have owned/heard both the MX760 and the PX100. I'd do a quick search to see if they have given opinions on the two. (Or you could PM them, but don't tell them I sent ya!)

For the longest time I really enjoyed the MX660, but once I heard the MX760, I rarely listen to the former anymore. I still feel that the volume controller on the MX660 is the culprit when it comes to the phone's recessed midrange and lack of detail compared to the MX760, and I have since noticed that the MX660 lacks soundstage depth as well. Still, the MX660 isn't bad. It just isn't as good as the MX760 to my ears.

If you can't return the MX760s, I would give them a little bit more time. I know that, before doing this review, I thought the 460, 660, and 760 sounded nearly identical, but going back and forth the differences became quite evident. Also, if the MX360s weren't too expensive, I'd give those a try, since to me they sound like a bassier version of the MX400/500.

Of course, your fondness of the EX85 makes me believe that your ears just prefer IEMs and canalphones. There's certainly nothing wrong with that, and many people have vocalized their concerns over the over-airiness of the MX760s. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to listen to the EX85, so I can't say what it is that you're "missing" in the MXs. I apologize that I'm not of any help.

MX760 do get better over time (being dynamic drivers). When I first got mine, I wasn't too impressed. Now they're simply really great. I actually listen to them more than my SE530 (due to the isolation factor, since I have school..)

Why do dynamic drivers get better over time?

I always thought I preferred buds tbh. I'll give these news buds more time so. There's a few things that indidnt like about these mx760 buds. First the cable is too long. They are about a third longer than the mx460s. I can use the section from the ex85s which is a good bit shorter. Be because of the bulky connector in the middle you can wind them up on the winder from the mx500s. There's some rubber thing in the packaging but seems a bit awkward to use IMO. The cable get tangled real easily. So I'll need to find some kinda winder for them. It's hard to get the sponges on them and there's one set in the box. Finally they don't fit in the ear as nice or as secure as the ex85s he downside with the ex85s is that you couldn't lie on a pillow with then as they protrude. The mx760 are fine though. All the new sonys seem. To protrude a good bit out of the ear.

MX360 is a good experience to me, and I may find myself another MX series earbud if that suits.

Hoho,its' attention seems to be grabed by mx360 and mx760 as they represent two different and significant quality of sound

I guess these two earbuds can suit all

Burn-in for dynamic drivers. And I also hate the long cable, but I guess it's a trade-off...

I should update my comments in this thread.

Over time I just ended up using the MX760's all the time. So ye are probably bang on about the burn in. The Sony EX082/85 were just too expensive and now gone from the shops unless you get a pair with a S639 player. (Which I did consider). The lesser buds MX360/460/500 I just don't use after the 760's. But I used them if I'm stuck. The cable on the 760 still drives me crazy, Tangles way too easily.

I picked up a pair of MX90VC but returned them without trying them. I also (long story) ended up with a pair of Denon C351's. They were just bad. Just won't listen to them. Maybe I should have keep the MX90VC but I thought they'd be too similar to the 760's. The MX90VC were a lot dearer than the 760 I think.

i think mx760 has more colour than mx90vc, and the fitting/isolation of mx90vc make it more detail than mx760

Thanks, good to know.Sounds like I'd like them too.
