Multi-IEM Review - 314 IEMs compared (Olasonic Flat-4 Nami added 04/13/14 p. 894) - Page 410

post #6136 of 13413

Wow, thanks for the response joker! I'll wait and see like you suggested.

 

Also, I forgot to tell you this, but thanks for all that you've done (and are doing). Before I found this massive review database I was always thinking to myself, "but how will I ever know how good *insert earphones* are in the big picture?". And you've surpassed my (and probably everyone else's) wildest dreams. To know that one person has gone to so much trouble to make such a great resource is just insane (in the best possible way).

The MC3 isn't BA, just trying to sound like one. But yes, it'll be vastly different from something like the Spark.

Thanks. Keep in mind that the ultimate way to know how earphones fit in is to try them yourself. Hopefully all of the reviews here on Head-Fi can offer the next best thing, though wink.gif.

The SF3 is not the best-sounding thing in its price bracket so unless you are getting a hefty discount on the original price I would consider alternatives as well. The Brainwavz M1 I thought sounded a lot like the SF3 but is significantly cheaper at MSRP.

 

Thanks for the advice and yes, the only reason i suggested the super fi 3s was that i ended up getting them for £17 and i am going to find the accessories (i.e cleaning tool and case) quite handy for my dba-02! Thanks again, Sonny

Just wondering, how does the UM miracle compare to the TF10 in quantity/quality of bass and highs?

That's a great deal - I actually quite like the sound of the SF3 (more so than that of the SF4), just not at the $129 MSRP.

The Miracle is generally more fleshed out (greater note thickness) and has better bass depth, texture, resolution, and detail. The TF10 has more of a mid-bass lift and may occasionally provide a bit more punch. At the top the Miracle is a little smoother although I've never really found the TF10 harsh or overly bright as some have in the context of its slightly v-shaped signature.

Hey |joker| :)

 

Is there any top-tier universal that you would say is similar to the SE215 that offers improvements overall while retaining a similar signature? My two biggest concerns would be bass body and extension, and the rich, forward mids, while being slightly dark/without emphasized treble.

hey joker , i wanna ask what Iem below 500 usd do u recommend  that have punchier bass. thx

post #6143 of 13413

joker, I'm just curious, but which IEM you have listened to have the widest IEM? Like from any price point. And how do they compare to headphones. Not that I am looking for one, just curious.

post #6144 of 13413

Joker, I found the Spark at MacMall for $30, you said I should just pick vPulse for full remote function at $90. But with $30, its just too hard to pass eh?

I'd look at the MTPG/MDT, Radius DDM/DDM2, and maybe the FA Tandem and Earsonics SM2/SM3

Probably the IE8 or Sony EX1000. There are definitely headphones that sound more closed-in than these two.
