Multi-IEM Review - 314 IEMs compared (Olasonic Flat-4 Nami added 04/13/14 p. 894) - Page 843

post #12631 of 13439
Nice to know that. Have always wanted to hear the great mids presentation people said of the ES5. Given up on custom as I faced fitting issues thus have to let go of my 8A. Any idea how much will the W50 retails for and any expected release date. Thanks in advance.

Edit: Ok. Did some reading and found my answer. Thanks again.

I thought that was the whole point of customs. Getting a perfect fit? What kind of issues did you have just out of curiosity?

Well. Let's just say the builder deem I'm the odd one out who can't be fitted with custom. After 3 refits, guess I'll call it a day and stick with universal. Though I may have better luck with another builder but not gonna take any chances. Will put the money into gears that can be easily pass on to another with the least damage to the wallet. So, let's put this behind and move on. There's a whole lot to look forward to with uiem and joker have done a stupendous job of bringing them forward for the benefit of all. Thanks for the great thread joker.

    man , as our ear shape changes , customs can get fitting issues , and to tackle that , companies lets you get your phones remolded in a month or likes for free , i suggest silicone molds , but not every phone has that option . still you can get it remolded for something like $50-100 .

One last question - how much better are the JVCs compared to the AM800?

 

Also just found out today that I have infact been using an EQ on my phone, and when turned off, the AM800 actually sound a tad better than I had previously thought, and bass wise they're not as lacking as I once thought. 

 

Thanks again

 

Actually, another question - a bluetooth adapter for the headphones wont affect SQ, will it?

O_O You heard the new Senns? 

 

*drool*

 

And yeah, the TF10 is great...I would kill to get one in a Shure or new Westone housing with MMXC connector. I've heard people say that the new W series sound different and I'm incredibly curious to see the difference, if there is one, between W3 and W30; if they've even managed to tame the midbass by a few dB, I will be waiting very patiently for the price to drop (or to see a used one in the FS section :P).

    bluetooth adapter for headphone ? i feel im confused , but bluetooth devices just cant have that amount of clarity , they just cant at times keep up with the amount of complicate data being transmitted , and can come short when it comes to spectrum , extension and frames at times , had an small encounter with 10rbt , it lags at times and extension at treble , but its just fine . mw1 just lacks spectrum . they do bass but lacks extension at treble .

post #12639 of 13439

Yeah bluetooth is generally inferior, but Sony has a couple of cheaper transmitters that will do justice to most <$150 earphones IME.

Yeah, something like this HTC Bluetooth one or maybe a wired one and a female-femalecoupler, although I'm not sure if it'd actually work. 

Would the difference in SQ be noticeable?

Joker, if one already has the Fidelio S1 and the S2 can be had for a similar price, do you think it's worth it? Is it really an upgrade?

     its noticeable if you put a good earphone to work , or something with a spark in its treble , most of the time they lose the treble in the air , but if you dont love treble they can be good , some thing like a bit more premium will do good , may be a sony mw1 to be the least expensive and is best for the price , but still a mw1 wont get you a sq even with a er-p4 over 8.0 , for me , cuz to me cutting off the treble is the 2nd worst thing . but if you can do with that , go get one , it will save you from some hassle .

I generally like Audio-Technica IEMs but unfortunately no plans to do those yet. And as far as I could tell Audio-Technica has no plans to officially bring them to the US :(.

Not too different, a little bassier and with slightly more “withdrawn” lower mids and a bit more clarity and resolution all around.

I haven't tried an APT-X bluetooth adapter yet. The cheap ones I have tried did degrade the sound.

I got to try the Momentums as well as their new DJ series (HD6/7/8) and of course the high-end stuff that they always have. I wasn’t too interested in their flagships as I’ve already tried those. Writing up my brief Senn impressions now – they’ll be CES Thoughts Part 3.

Not really – the only time I’d recommend “upgrading” from S1 to S2 is if their signature makes them your end-all, favorite IEMs. Otherwise one is pretty much as good as the other, at least in terms of sound.

I agree with this, bought the IM70 and was very very impressed. The clarity, bass quality and quantity was enough to put a big smile on my face :D

For about $110 it's a better option for people who wants the clarity of the RE-400 but with more bass imo.

This is good to know, since it looks increasingly like the TDK BA200 may be being discontinued. (I debated buying them after reading Joker's impressions.)
