I've narrowed my choices down to yamaha eph 100 and hifiman re400. Which one should I get?

If you can, can you give me a rough estimate of its score on "Sound"? thanks

 

Yeah I think it's a little better than VC02 and LG Quadbeat. I would estimate at least an 8.2, maybe a bit higher.

Well now I have decided to increase the budget a little and include AM-90 and C-12 in the mix. Also have excluded MH1C solely due to its design and E30 main due to low isolation (and that I have increased my budget).

 

Now I have some queries

Does AM-90 needs an amp ( as its impedance is quite high compared to others I have looked at) ?

Does AM-90 lacks in bass ? How is it compared to GR02 ? Idk why but got such impression after reading this -

 

"The sound signature of the AM-90, while slightly warm, is not unbalanced. Bass depth is decent enough – no match for dynamic-driver sets such as the id America Spark or VSonic GR99 but good for a single armature. Mid-bass impact is a hair lower than that of the A151 but control and detail are similarly good. The low end can be classified as punchy, but also not lacking in body and fullness for a BA-based earphone – seemingly a hallmark of the SR armature."

Should be at least at a level of ES18/E10

 

Also how is VSD1 compared to VC02 ? Just in case I decide to buy from lendmeurears

 

The AM-90 does not need an amp. It's actually easier to drive (slightly) than something like the VSD1 and MH1C. Bass is almost flat on the Astrotecs. If you're looking at the Bass Edition of the GR02, it's going to have a lot more bass. The VC02 and AM-90 have similar bass qty. while the others (VSD1, MH1C, GR02BE) all have more.

 

VSD1 vs VC02

VSD1 is warmer in tone, fuller, and has more bass impact. It is also more sensitive

VC02 is thinner, more analytical, brighter, less bass impact but also appears a touch quicker and more textured at the low end

you help me to detele a models

 

 

my choice are

 

soundmagic e10 

 

or vsonic vsd1 / vsd1s

 

or redgiant a00 / a04

 

For me it's the VSD1S as an all-rounder but I haven't heard anything by redgiant.

BTW |joker| thanks for your review which, after seeing this, finally encouraged me to buy the RE-400. :beerchug:

I only wish it has a mic/remote version, but it's really great to listen to any music.

 

For an example of someone who didn't like them at all, see the mess that is the comment section on the InnerFidelity review

 

I agree with you though, and the RE-400 would probably be my #1 choice in the price range if I had to pick just one earphone. 

 

To do a microphone version HiFiMan would have to give up on going balanced for good. I guess for the RE-400 it wouldn't be a problem but the RE-600 wouldn't work. 5-pole TRRRS plug :rolleyes:

i wonder how effective it really is at reducing microphonics.

by the way it appears, it should block all noise, just like a cable clip.

i wonder why is it such a rare thing to see then, and why something like the 1000$ Sennheiser IE800

doesn't incorporate *at least* something like this solution.

interesting!

 

It's not a novel idea but I've actually never gotten my hands on one of those. No clue if it works or not.

 

There are some manufacturers that consistently do a good job of eliminating microphonics - JVC, for example - and some that struggle. Probably comes down to whether the design team thought of cable noise as an important issue and/or was able to find a fix.

But you still want help. I see from your posts from other threads that it seems you're not liking what is being suggested since you don't like VSonic.
So why not go with what you really want and get the Soundmagic e10?

 

Actually I hadn't gotten a chance to reply until now but for me the VSD1S seems like the best all-rounder (though admittedly I haven't tried anything from redgiant).

For flatter and more accurate sound - RE-400. For a fun, warm signature with enhanced bass, EPH-100. I like them both (see here)

Thank you. As always, constantly delivers :)

post #11524 of 13414

I've had my VSonic GR06 for almost a year now(they're my first pair of IEMs), and I honestly don't think it sounds any different from any of the earbuds I've worn over the years. The only thing I like about it, and the only difference I notice, is the isolation, which I like, however, it still isn't enough sometimes.

So what's the best IEM for <$300, with at least a 4 for isolation, and better sound than the GR06?

Some of the models that fit the criteria aren't on ebay or amazon, like the ACS T15, and I also want something that looks decent, so no Etymotic Research.

How about the TripleFi 10's? They've been on the upcoming reviews for probably 3 years now, are they good?

do you mean the earbuds that came with your player?

post #11526 of 13414

but I want to know the position  with redgiant a00 or a04 than the sound magic e10 or vsonic vsd1(s)

 

i hope anyone can to help me

dont stress out. all of them are good. (except for red giant, i am not familiar with them)
if you really want to know every detail of these phones, you got to read about them and you can find it here in head fi.
there are really lots of choices, so many of them that its really hard to pinpoint what you want unless you try it yourself. because judging an earphone is somewhat subjective. but these reviews will give you a good idea of what you can expect from them.
if i were you, i'd stop being indecisive and just get any of your choices, i know you want the best for your money. and by the way, i recommend vsonic vsd1 or soundmagic e10, you cant go wrong with them, im pretty sure you will enjoy them. Bonne chance :)

VSD1S is probably the right choice. I've heard the RedGiants and they're "fun" oriented, both the A00 and A04 have bass enhancement and lifted treble --- mainstream orientation, if you will, not really a "hi-fi" emphasis. They're quite fun and enjoyable for what they are, though. Plus, they look kinda cool.

post #11529 of 13414

i just used a translator to bridge what i want to say earlier.
Il ne faut pas souligner. Elles sont toutes bonnes. (À l'exception de redgiant, je ne suis pas familier avec eux)
si vous voulez vraiment d'en connaître tous les détails de ces earphones, vous avez obtenu de lu des choses à ce sujet, vous pouvez le trouver ici en head fi.
il y a vraiment beaucoup de choix, de sorte que beaucoup d'entre eux qu'il est vraiment difficile de cerner ce que vous voulez sauf si vous essayez par vous-même. parce qu'à en juger d'écouteurs est quelque peu subjectif. mais ces examens vous donnera une bonne idée de ce que vous pouvez attendre d'eux.
si j'étais vous, je reviendrais avoir tâtonné et juste obtenir un de vos choix, je sais que vous voulez le meilleur pour votre argent. et en passant, je vous recommande vsonic vsd1/s ou soundmagic e10, vous ne pouvez pas Aller mal avec eux, im assez sûr que vous apprécierez les. Bonne chance :)

no, its alright. but still. you should not be too indecisive. as i read, most of us are recommending the vsd1s. i know you have no experience on any headphones, some of us think vsd1s is a good phone to start with. so just buy it, alright? and hopefully you will like it. im confident you will.
