So to me it's a big headache. I've been looking at the new shures and the 1plus2and the 3003's. so yes are they really that good that you put them ahead of your 13's and 16's?? Thanks smily_headphones1.gif
Well, if you talk about bass capability, nothing beats jh series imo. But K3003 sounds much more natural while keeping same detail and clarity as jh13. That's why I rated them high. I personally love them. Have $400 saved for them, so only $900 more! BTW, I don't own a kh ciem. I just had a chance to demo them at Jaben. If you like some serious bass, I would place the JH13/16 over the K3003.

Sweet thank you. No I'm not a bass head at all. I've listened to the 3003 for about two mins. I liked it but I needed way more time with them. I like bass but only when it's needed and not that far about neutral. So from what I hear I would probably like the jh13 over the 16. And ya the 3003 is expensive for a iem but unlike any ciem you could at least get more of your money back selling them if you don't like them.

I know. Reselling a ciem is always a bad idea. I guess it's a safer investment.

Yamaha EPH-100 has better comfort than Westone 4?! :blink:

post #636 of 828

for SQ this is my opinion

jh16fp=1plus2=kaede>ie800=fitear togo 334>8a>ie80>um3x>w4

for top tier iem i cant really say which one is better because they all have a very good sound which is hard to choose.

The Yamaha's tips are longer and allow for better seal. The long, small flange tips are soft and far less intrusive than Westone's. In addition, it can be worn over the ear, allowing for better comfort and eliminates the weight of the IEM and its cables. The memory cable lets me to wear the IEM over the ear easier. 

 

On the other hand, Westone W4 is totally pain in the ass. While it is heavy, I can't get good fit because the nozzle is not angled well, short, and it's TIP DEPENDENT. Before the star tips came out,  I struggled for one year to get good fit. None of the stock tips did I liked. It left me with the grey single flange (M), but it made the W4 sibilant.  I spent probably +$80 bucks to buy other tips starting from shure olives small, medium, then Shure grey flex medium and small but none of them fits comfortably and none of them improved the sound. Now those tips are left in the dust, unused.  Even with the Westone star tips, it feels like a bullet inserted to my ear. 

 

In addition to that, the W4 stiffens over time even though I always wipe the cable after every use.  When I compared it with my UM3x, the W4 cables were as hard as a wire. It was so hard to bent so I struggled to wear it over the ear. Now I learned that it was the cable that cause discomfort. I contacted westone customer service regarding my problem and they said ," Depending on a person's body chemistry and what the cable has been exposed to it is possible that the cable can become a bit stiff with time and usage".  Thankfully, they were nice enough to replace it with the new one. Now the cable is flexible like a shoe ties

 

Even with the new one, I am afraid to wear W4 frequently because the cable may stiff again. So sad because I like the W4 sound quality tho -_-.

SQ: Sony EX310 > Sennheiser CX150 > Klipsch ProMedia > Kicker EB141 > Nexus phone IEMs
Comfort: Klipsch ProMedia > CX150 > Nexus Phone IEMs > Sony EX310 > Kicker

I don't like the Sony plugs that much, I've tried using the different tips and I feel extremely odd after a while of listening, and the design is good looking but it heavy on the outside so there's a feeling that it hangs outwards even in the ear. But not as bad as the Kicker, that driver is just too big.

 

I'm gonna try the Yamaha EPH50 or 30 soon.

Updated.

 

SE846>ASG2>W4R>UE900>UM3XRC>SE535>SM3

 

I've heard the AKG3003 and IE800, but not long enough to give a real opinion.  Both did sound pretty nice for the time I listened, but still preferred the SE846 over both.

Er4s - w4r-ie80- 535- eq5-4ai...i picked up a used pair of Denon ah c400 I believe that's what they are called.. And I would love to rank them really high if it wasn't for the non Removable cable and although I don't eq any of my headphones when these are eqd with more bass they will distort a little.. But that's only at a very high volume that I'd never listen to my music that high it's just suicide lol I do like to turn them up high but that's just way to high.. Anyways these are quickly becoming my favorite IEM rite now... They are fairly neutral but sound beautiful.. Loads of Detail and if your music isn't burned or downloaded at a good bit rate you'll hear it that's for sure.. I'm starting to really love these except for what I mentioned.. Has anyone here have listened to theseplease chime in aand give me any comments you may have.. Thank you.. There is no appreciate links on here for them.. That I have found anyways..Thanks :-)
