post #751 of 828

1. um pro 30 /um3x

2. se535 ltd

3. 4r

4. EX-90

5. UE600

 

All very good iem's, it really all just comes down to preference.  I love the separation and bass of the um pro 30/um3x...to me it's my fav.  Will update again when my um pro 50's arrive next week :-)

So the sleek audio is really that good?? I am very interested in a pair ?

I like them very much. Deep bass, great mids, very nice treble, magical vocals, good soundstage, speed. They are very musical and natural. Plus VQ-tunning system... Comfort and isolation are superb too. Very good phones, very.

Money...:)
I can't just take them from my pocket and buy UM or Heir)
Later i think i will buy some model for some normal price, not top-tiers.

The ie80 really is a great iem huh. Once in a while maybe not often enough I'll put them in and after a few mins of adjustment it's like .. Awe yeah that sound really sweet. I have them And the w3 and when I amp the both with my continental v3 the w3 has more slam really. I know people on this forum has said that the w3 don't advantage from an amp. And that partly rite. But straight from just my ipod classic I'm not getting that kinda bass out of them that's for sure. Any ways nice collection smily_headphones1.gif

I normally stick to full headphones, but for just IEMs:

SE530 == SE500 > ER6i > MEElectronics M9 (excellent bang for buck, considering how cheap they are) > Sennheisher CX475 (similar to M9 in many ways, but better built, ironically)


For some "taste" comparison, one of my favorite headphones is the Audiotechnica A900. I've had 3 pairs of those. The wires may crap out on me often, but damn do I love their sound.

That's a nice collection. I'm kinda curious. You rank the ie80 about a couple really nice iems. Like the um3 and the ie800? I really like them to. You think they are a better iem then those two? Thanks in advace smily_headphones1.gif cheers

Thank you pacman. I only own about 4 IEMS now. The um3x and ie800 were great but were not conducive to me at the time. Once I've received the ASG2, I sold the UM3X as the ASG2 already had what the UM3X had plus more. With the IE800, I couldn't stand the ergonomics of the IEM as well as the fit. The IE80 is a lot more durable, sounds full and complete with an emphasized mid-bass bump. The se846 rounds out the collection, it does what the IE800 couldn't do. It is really hard to say what is better straight off the bat. There are so many contributing factors to why you make like an IEM more than the other. IMO, I find the IE80 perfect for use in the car (I modded with an IE8i microphone cable. This actually adds more warmth to the lower-end, little less impact), light workouts, walking. Just an all around great IEM. You may PM me with more advanced questions if you wish pacman, maybe I can help you.

Wow, the Wooduo 2 are only $75!  Why do you like them so much?

It isn't always about price necessarily. Like a lot of things in life, we are always looking for the best value for our dollar. However, regardless of price, these perform like $250 dollar IEMs. I've used quite a bit of the more popular bassy IEMs for the past few years. Once I put the WD2 in my ears, I felt like I got a steal. I paid $60. The wood is very classy. Bass is warm and textured with at times, pounding impact. Definitely V-shaped, but not over the top. These are very small and fit in the ears perfectly. For working out, they are a Godsend. They need a little break-in just like any other headphone-IEM, but perform great out of the box. They are my #4 IEM. Only below the IE80 (#3), ASG2 (#2), SE846 (#1).

What type of music do you listen to?  I have the HA-S500 and was wondering how the sound signature compares, since I find the HA-S500 to have pounding bass.  What does the WD2 do better than the S500 and vice versa?

XBA-30+comply T400   >  PFE012+shure olives (small)  =  Klipsch x10 > XBA-1 + V-moda tips

 

*notes: 

The comply tames the piercing treble of XBA-30 and isolates significantly better than the sony's stock tips. The widest soundstage of XBA-30 butchered all the BA's shown above.

 

PFE012 without the shure/comply would be crap because of its short nozzle and shallow fitting which results in isolation that's equivalent to iPod's buds. 

 

Klipsch x10 is equal to the PFE because it cannot be fitted by shure olives and doesn't sound good with the comply; therefore, its isolation loses to the PFE. Although X10's SQ is superior than PFE, I could not enjoy it without good isolation (yet, x10 is harder to be worn over the ear)

 

XBA-1's comfort is the best of all and isolation is as equally as good as the foam's. However, It has boring SQ, but its non-fatiguing nature makes it the best IEM for long listening period.

CK100 Pro = UM3x/UM Pro 30 > W4 = BA200 = TF10 > SE530 = W3 > IE8

 

Definitely a lot that I'm missing here.
