IEM's for around $80 help! - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Thread Starter 
The worms are just wonderful for a hungry college student like me!

As for the input, I thank you guys so much.

So basically the consensus is that the RE0's are cleaner and crisper while the S4's have more bass impact and generally have a warmer sound.

With that being said, I'm guessing the RE0's are better suited for my music tastes as well. The bass can be heard but not be overpowering which is similar to my Shure's.

But one last question, is it worth it to buy the S4's to have a different type of sound to listen to?

That's a hard question to ask really. It may be worth it to some but not to you. If you are set on buying the RE0 or whatever it is that you purchase I suggest you try that out and fully try it out for a week or two and then go from there.

There are many people here (myself included) who have iem's that have different sound signatures. I had the RE0 and S4 at one point and found myself favoring the RE0 so I eventually got rid of them and upgraded to a phone where I would be able to pick them both up pretty evenly.

Alright, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the RE0's especially since they were even more than twice as expensive as they are now on Amazon.

I am really looking forward to testing them out.

Thank you guys all your help!

For under $100, I think the RE0s are the best of the bunch! I actually prefer them to the more expensive ER-4P/S and UE10s!

you know you could get the s4's at an apple store, try them and then return them if you don't like them.

does that change if you amp the re0's?

I have the RE1s myself, but have been following RE0 impressions closely here, and from what I can surmise RE0s perform better unamped than the RE1s, but will still benefit from amping. There are differences in the impedance and efficiency ratings for the two that support this. I have not picked up a pair of RE0s yet myself

Also I can see that there is a bit of controversy regarding bass response on the RE0s that can be taken care of with the correct seal/tip selection; the RE1s have no such controversy, but again, they need amping to sound good.

Etys are great - clean, analytical, detailed, but they might lack bass for you (a lot of people think so) & their build quality is so-so. My died after two years - i soldered cord two times, then nozzle cracked. For example - Shures SCL3 (i don't like their sound) survived, but cable stiffed & etys 4p are as new after 3 years.
If you don't wanna spend a lot of cash - look at SoundMagic. Have no experience with Klipsch & Re0

I'm gonna through the Klipsch Custom 2 into the ring. You can get them for about $70 if you shop around. Really comfortable, dual BA drivers = really clean, analytical sound, nice accurate bass.
