Just got the Sennheiser MX 365 earbuds after using Apple earbuds and Sony Fashion earbuds my whole life. Gotta say I am VERY impressed with the MX 365's!

IMO there is only one way to know if you bought legit or not, and that is after you submit your senns for authetication at their website. http://qr-sennheiser.com/index.php?id=5&L=1&id=5

I just received my MX985 new in box.  I went to the Sennheiser website you mentioned.

But, there is no way to authenticate.  This box does not have the sticker that they show in their video.  It has nothing that says "QR CODE" anywhere that I can find.

Can anybody help?

There are five -- count 'e, FIVE - stickers on the back of the box that have Chinese writing on them.  But no "QR CODE". 

 

Sigh.  I hope these are not fuggin' fakes.

post #516 of 644

Just bought a pair of sennheiser mx 985 as my first pair of earbud.

I'm really impressed on how good these sounds, they do almost everything well !

 

The more I listen to these the more I like them !

Ebay seller bigbargainonline, who has 10,000 transactions and 99.9% pos feedback

 

Sennheiser authentication website doesn't work with their box.  That's what got me worried.  HOWEVER, the seller has now told me that Sennheisers from China are governed by a chinese authentication website, located here....

 

 

Of course, it's all in chinese, so I am having trouble authenticating.  But the fact that he showed this to me and showed me which sticker on the box to check is a positive sign.

oh, i see now. i agree with you, i had the chance to deal with that guy and i can vouch for his integrity as an online seller.

Even if Bigbargain online was not an official retailer doesn't necessary mean he is selling counterfait products .

I personaly have no doubt about what he sells !

It"s a risk worth taking I?O

I have bought items from bigbargainonline over the years as well, and the transactions have always been quite positive.

post #521 of 644

Exactly the thread I wanted to read, any possibility of throwing in some earbuds released closer to the ear end?

 

I think 985 is for me. Would a portable amp make any difference to the 985?

 

Edit: I have a 58% off deal on the Sennheiser LX90, is it true that these keep falling out frequently? With this price I might as well pick this up and get an amp.

I found the MX985 to have limited dynamics or PRaT comparing to my old Blox prototype (very similar to Blox TM5 in sound quality with less bass and more highs). I say this because I couldn't feel the clear space or the edge between instruments, they all seem to grouped together by some dark fluid. No matter how explosive the music is, the sound is always tamed down and I don't get exited. And my MX985 have burnt in for more than 2 months now.

 

MX985 reminds me of the sound IEM produces rather than the full-size can like my old Blox does. Based on my short sessions with SWD2, SWD2 has better dynamics and although my SWD2 lost sound on one side quite a while ago.

Yes, fit is always a problem with all the 90 series.

Anybody please?

post #525 of 644

Well, I don't think that I can contribute too much since I haven't heard the PAA-1 Pro, but at least I can give my quick opinions on the Sunrise AS Charm 3 and Yuin PK3. I'd say that the PK3 have got a much more "fun" sound than the Charm 3, which has got a thinner and more "analytic" sound. The PK3 has got fuller and more forward mids and slightly "boomy" bass. The Charm 3 doesn't have the same nice mids but on the other hand, bass is slightly more detailed.
From what I have read about the PAA-1 Pro, they are pretty dark and bassy, so the 3 earbuds are quite different in sound: Sunrise Charm 3 is pretty neutral with clear highs, PK3 has got great mids and the PAA-1 Pro has got a lot of bass...

Here are two reviews of the Charm 3:

There's also the Vsonic UU2:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/290877755704?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

 

And the Sunrise AS Feeling 2:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/380463178064?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

I think both of those are around Yuin PK3 or slightly below when it comes to sound quality...

Edit: If the seller ships to your country, I'd really recommend these earbuds: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=141131804999&item=141131804999&vectorid=229466

 

They are not very bassy and highs are slightly harsh, but the Dasetn AP8 has got great depth in its soundstage. The soundstages of the Yuin PK3 and Sunrise AS Charm 3 sound very flat in comparison. For this low price they are really recommended!
