Multi-IEM review v.1: 48 earphones compared - Page 2

post #16 of 473
hhmm.... it looks like you have slightly different sized tips on some of them(well, I know tips are bound to be slightly different sizes, but looks like on some you have medium tips, some you have large, etc)....or maybe I'm just going crazy, which is enterily possible.

Might be the perspective of the picture. They are actually all medium single-flange tips from whatever was included with the earphone or standard bi-flanges. If you mean the tips on the PL50, they actually do look really big in person, probably because of how small the PL50 is, but they are still just the 2nd from largest size of hybrids.

Dang, Joker, you're a life-safer! I couldn't resist my own impatience, so I went to BB today to pick up the Sony hybrid tips. They're great! Just what I wanted: fantastic seal (better than the Shure silicones, actually), and don't have the weird, plasticky, hollow effect that the Shure silicones add.

Definitely worth the $9. Thanks for the heads-up!

Haha, glad you like them. I'm usually against products that come in four sizes, only one of which you can use, but the Hybrids are good enough to be worth the $9 for one set alone. Plus they last forever.

I think the T500 fits the Im-590, but I'm not sure. Don't own a set at the moment. I actually found the stock fused biflanges to be really, really good though.

Doesn't the IM-590 have a similar sound tube to the CK10, AI-M6?

So that would be the T-200.
post #22 of 473
Exactly right, T-200.

Ah, my bad. I forget which way comply tips are numbered - increasing vs decreasing. Thanks for clearing that up.

I'm somewhat set..okay..a bit wavering.. on purchasing RE0. Looking forward to your review!

Oooh! I'm so very familiar with your IEMs. See you got rid of the ER-4Ss, I was interested in a comparison of those with some of your others.

Can't wait for the Jazz/AT reviews! Are you planning to do it ClieOS style, with kinda standardized value ratings/soundstage ratings?

Anyways, I'm looking forward to this.

Don't worry, I've been cooking up something like this for a while, but wasn't originally intending to post it until winter break. A lot of the IEMs that I got rid of recently (and that includes the Etys) will still be featured in the review as I took extensive notes on them when they were still in my possession. They just had to go to free up room (and finances) for new toys.

I don't intend to steal ClieOS's format, but the ratings will be standardized to the best of the bunch (i.e. PL50 being the golden standard for comfort, ER-4S for isolation, etc). I don't think I will use any mathematical formulas for this one, so my value rating will be purely subjective.

Trying to get my photographs in order for first posting in the next few days.

Ya, I don't have any problems with them(though I'm still not sure if the medium or large sized ones are best for me....) I was wondering if their was anything else I might be able to try on, since I won't be able to get any kind of upgrade for a long time(expesially[yes, horrid sp] if i go through with my plan and end up saving up to engough for JH13s[or another flagship custom], or what ever the newest model is assuming it isn't a lot more and is better then them)...

well anyways... engough I think that's engough thread de-railment...

This should be good, can't wait for your impressions on the ATHCK10 and Radiopaq Jazz.
post #29 of 473
will wait for the full review..
post #30 of 473
interested to see where you rank a few things too, jazz included as i think they punch way above their current price. im sure its only their lack of general availability in the us thats prevented them from being more spoken about on here
