I prefer that people not expect grand positive changes in C/IEMs over time, if so I think many would be disappointed.

 

In the past I do believe I've heard burn in with floor standing KEF, Paradigm and possibly Mirage speakers (though Omnisats make the last a touch more difficult as there are more room reflections).

Change doesn't necessarily mean it will get better so I agree with not assuming but by the same token, I wouldn't discard anything before 100hrs either.

Some say that is difference in quality between the CKM500 and CKM500iS.

 

So I searched more options, the options are:

 

SoundMAGIC MP21 ($35)

Brainwavz M4 ($40)

ATH-CKM300iS ($45)

Sony DR-EX102VP ($47)

ATH-CKM500iS ($63)

Ultimate Ears 350VM ($65)

Sennheiser CX275s ($66)

 

Any help to reduce this list is welcome... I saw comments about ATH-CKM500iS saying it's not good for rock music, and it's my kind of music...

From your list, I would pick up Ultimate Ears which I assume is UE600 for rock music if bass is not your priority.:wink_face:

Its UE350VM, UE600 costs US$120+... :(

Sony MH1C

post #11826 of 13429

No, Sony Mh1c is too bassy and slow for rock music and the cable is terrible.

post #11827 of 13429

I forgot to mention the DUNU DN-22M for  $45.

 

The thing about MH1C is that I can't find a reliable seller, and it's $43. Now it's not good to rock music too, the cable wouldn't be a deal to me I think.

    where do you belong from , you are thunderously over priced on these , you can opt for ue400/500 , try a balanced armature , like xba-10 , xba-c10 , pl50 , she9850 , these are cheap ones , i got an she9850 for rs 999 , roughly $17 . xba-3 for rs3915 , $65 roughly .

Most prices are from eBay, I'm from Brazil, I'm considering the shipping costs too... And the headphone must have a Microphone, and it make the IEM expensive, I think.

Uh-oh, better late than never: congrats on reaching 300! :beerchug:

Man i can't even remember where you were up to when I first came here. It was like 150. Kind of mind boggling when I still owe someone impressions on a loan from a month ago.

Congrats!

I actually wouldn't mind the JH13 with less bass - really couldn't pick a favorite between it and the NT 6 (which is flatter and leaner) in that regard.

 

The treble appears to be less smooth than I would like is when compared to a Miracle or Westone ES5 (that latter of which IMO is darker than it needs to be). It's still an improvement over things like the K3003 and Senn IE800 and on its own doesn't bother me in the least.

 

I'm very curious to hear the NT6 myself. It seems to share a lot in common with the UERM, which I've been using for the last week or so, except with greater midrange presence, though it seems to be even more greatly lifted in the upper treble region, which is a nice effect on the UERM, but it doesn't play nice with tracks that don't scrutinize mastering and can get tiring after a while. It's just so difficult to keep the upper treble even keeled in IEMs, though...

 

And also, very silly of me not to congratulate you on 300 --- it's a milestone! :beerchug:
