Review: ECCI PR100 and PR200 - Cyclone's Fresh Start - Page 3

post #31 of 39

Bought the PR200 from lendmeurears' shop display today. The version I got doesn't have the sliding cord cinch and the strain relief on the 3.5mm plug is opaque black instead of translucent. 

 

I'm enjoying the sound, having used the Sunrise Xcape IE and CAL the past few weeks. I'm wondering what I'm supposed to hear when I switch between the "elongated narrower-tube Shure tips and [the] shorter wider-tube UE tips". The IEMs come with the UE tips installed. I've just switched to the Shure ones and they seem to fit better.

 

Am thinking of using the PR200 when I'm on the treadmill. Will they hold up well against all that sweat?

Found the answer to one of my questions on ECCI's website at http://www.audioecci.com/ProList_en.aspx

 

Under the description of the PR300, it says that the narrow-tube ear tips enhance sound quality whereas the wide-tube ear tips enhance the "sense of music". Interesting.

The narrower tips compress the stage a little but don't expect huge differences. I would go with whatever is more comfortable - ultimately that matters just as much as sound quality.

 

I didn't have any issues using the PR100 or PR200 daily but it's hard to say how they will do in the long run. Build seemed very solid, with nicely closed seams and a cable that didn't exhibit signs of hardening after a couple of months.

I just got my PR200s today and for $30 I am mighty impressed. I'll get around to writing a proper review once they're burned in etc - but these seem criminally underrated for me. Also I think Jokers description of the sound was pretty spot on. They are balanced with a bit of fun thrown in. Although the bass doesn't rumble I am impressed by its depth (considering the price tag) -- If that makes sense. Also the fit is really good - I get a much better fit with the longer tube style then the shorter tube. These will probably quite easily replace my Meelec M9s as my cheap & cheerful choice. Pity they don't make em with mic n button.

Yeah, these are more like the MEElec CW31s than any of the M-series stuff. You would probably like the PR401 as well wink.gif

That looks nice but I thought the PR100 was replaced a while ago with the PG100. Wouldn't be surprised if they dropped the PR200 now as well.

Newer version, perhaps.

PG100 isn't even listed anymore at the ECCI website, I think the PG200 was meant to replace PG100

 

Yeah, I asked around and it is indeed a newer version wink.gif

 

Another good news, PG200\PR200\PR300 is on a discount, 41% precisely,

for those who can read mandarin
