Out of interest how are the IM50s for active use? I'm considering getting the IM70s but they do look a bit big and I'd want to use then for running and the gym.

They are good for running. No problem.

and what about se846?

 

I haven’t tried the SE846. I do like the VC1000 and DN-1000 very much, which I couldn’t say for the SE535, but they also have different sound signatures – the VC1000 brighter and more “analytical” and the DN-1000 brighter and more v-shaped.

I still have a 1st-gen maroon one from 2009 with the copper memory wire and microphonic cable :p

I assume that this means the BA drivers of the Fitears are superior and that once fitear implements Freqphase that they will be much better than JH's set. Is frequency phase patented by JH?

I also am leaning towards the SE-5 as apparently they can change the decay of the sound to make it sound more organic. But they are made of silicone, doesn't silicone tear easily and acrylic is a harder material do I would assume it is more durable.
 

Freqphase is just a marketing word JH Audio uses for having their IEMs (supposedly) phase-aligned. That’s not to say FitEar stuff is not phase-aligned in the first place, or even what sort of difference it makes in what we actually here. IMO it’s not a good idea to let marketing-speak convince you whether something is or isn’t worth buying. I personally think the TG334 has significant shortfalls in balance and finesse compared to the JH13 but I don't know (or think that it matters ) if what’s responsible for the difference is the "Freqphase" tweak.

Was wondering what you guys think about the Earsonics sm64? Would like to know how it compares to the W40 and Se535? Trying to decide on getting a pair of IEMs around this price range.

Hi Joker

 

Quick question, currently got Bassos and want to upgrade due to driver flex.

Which IEMs you think will suit electronic music for under £80?

 

Thanks

Lol I remember I was too cheap to pay the extra money. Those were awesome. The clear ones look like secret service equipment compared to those Maroon ones. Magnificent color choice.

How are they compared with Audio Technica CKX9 or Phillips S1s?

    i have neither of these , but you can read about the rha ma-750 in the review segment . and about the h1 , has a lesser bass decay , nice mids , and blunt highs , beautifully musical sound , wont rate it high for its sq but for me its a 8.4 , wont feel slow to electronic music , i myself like electronic music and h1 is not bad at it , fuller bass , not much sub bass but mid bass is nice .

Having to be a big brand really narrows it down. The Sony MDR-7550 sounds better than the SE535 to me with a not-too-different sound signature (balanced, a little warm, with smooth treble). TDK BA200 does too, and has a similar form factor. Otherwise you're probably stuck with having to get another pair of Shures. 

 

Thanks for the input! But those are scarse and i don't find any retailer nor etailer selling The Sonys in Sweden. I do find a retailer selling the TDK BA200. These are better than the 535's you say? Regarding the Shure SE535 it's nearly sold out everywhere here and i was thinking custom as an alternative. Is the 1964-V3 from 1964 Ears better than the Shure 535's? And the Westone W40 any thoughts of them? Im just after transparent neutral sound and no colouring on any range. The Shure 535, UE900, Sennheiser 8i, Etymotic Research ER-4PT, Klipsch X11i, Grado GR8 is the only ones with big availability here in Sweden.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

edit: ljokerl i just read that you didn't like the SE535 a few posts up. Are they bad?

This might be the best thread ever of all thread that ever was!!

Just reporting back that I have given many more hours on my RHA 750 IEMs. They have become everything I had hoped and more! Bass response has enhanced with burn in and the clarity is excellent across the spectrum! My only gripe in the over ear piece. I wish they were a little more rigid or perhaps "formable".

Zero Audio Tenore and Monster Gratitude are great for electronic music.  Have you heard the Fidelio S1?  I have the S2 and they are good for electronic music also.
