I don't think you'd like RE-400 if you like bass.  They were too bass light for me.

 

At $150, I'd look at Dunu DN-1000, Zero Audio Carbo Doppio, KEF M200, Fostex TE-05

I just tried the RE600 and i liked it a lot (it sounds like a vastly improved RE-262 with much better bass and better detail retrieval , but it seems kinda 'slow' compared to the 272/eq5 plus i don't think it's price justifies the small differences i hear when compared with the 272/eq5)


what would you buy if you liked these 3 iems but wanted something EVEN better ? let's stay below 500$ for now


Thanx biggrin.gif

I just reviewed the Noble 4 and it seems to fit all your requirements. You can also check joker's noble 4s review... They sound pretty similar.

I reviewed it here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/more-less-vsonic-vsd1-and-vsd1s . In terms of sound quality, I rate it just a bit above the VC02 model.

I listen to alot of Christina Aguilera & Jason Mraz type of music.

I also love bass so that means im a basshead? And I also like the vocals crisp.

What IEM would you recommend? I contacted a music store here and what they recommended were Rockit R50 and RE400.

I just bought a CX 300 II yesterday and I was kind of disappointed and underwhelmed although the bass is good, I felt like the voices are muddy so please help me choose an IEM that I will not regret within that price range. Thank you.

And please tell me whether the choice will be a significant upgrade from cx300ii to the one im looking for.

 

The R-50 and RE-400 probably won't have enough bass for you, especially considering your music preferences. If you want solid bass and clear vocals the Yamaha EPH-100 would be my pick, but there are lots of other good options such as the JVC FXT90 and even RBH EP1.

I've only tried the Noble 4S and not the 4 or 4C but it's one of the only IEMs I could call an upgrade to the RE272.

Speaking of Noble, they've just announced some new reference products: http://theheadphonelist.com/noble-launches-fr-pr-variable-tuning-ear-monitors/

That's good news Joker...I'm looking forward to your review of the new Noble Audio universals. Hope these make it to your top 10 if not top 5 list :D

I have the dunu dn1000 (get it yestarday )and I think they do not have a lot of bass compared to se215
but the sound is great.

Hi ljockerl,

Can You compare yamaha eph-100 and nuforce ne-700x? I know that a lot of people will say something like "eph is way better" but nuforce have a lot of good reviews in my country and nobody have booth so i really want to know Your opinion. I have soundmagic e10 now and looking upgrade. I usually listen Rock music, tons of RHCP and I would be grateful if You compare eph100 and ne700x separately in bass/mids/highs and soundstage

Cheers smily_headphones1.gif

Any insight as to how the Sony MH1C and the Nuforce NE-700X compare to the Vsonic GR99?  I have the Vsonic, and the descriptions of the Sony and Nuforce sound similar to the Vsonic.  Would either be an upgrade over the Vsonic?  In particular, I'd be looking for something with a similar overall sound signature to the Vsonic but a bit better performance in the midrange (a bit more clear and a bit less veiled in the mids).

 

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Does changing the type of metal a BA driver is made from affect the sound? (i.e aluminium vs titanium)
post #13285 of 14166
Hey guys, anyone using the Noble Audio K-10? If so how do you like them? Gonna be using it with the AK-240. It's between the Roxanne and the K-10. Just trying to get some honest opinions. Thanks...

I do think the EPH-100 is better, though there's also a big price gap there. The bass on the NE-700X is loose compared to the EPH-100. That's going to the biggest difference - it sounds sluggish and excessive in comparison even though the EPH-100 doesn't really lag behind in depth and impact. The EPH-100 also has a stronger midrange and smoother upper mids, with a more well-layered presentation.

The NE-700X has quite a bit more bass than the GR99. The MH1C is closer, but still bassier. It's also smoother than the GR99. However, if you're looking for more midrange presence and good, but not heavy, bass, you might want to consider the Fidue A63 instead in that price range.

Most likely yes but you'd have to ask a BA engineer to get a definitive answer.

Hi Joker, care to share which CSR Bluetooth dongle with aptX support on Windows 7 x64 you're using? A friend of mine is having problems with the SBH80 and his laptop's inbuilt BT, so he wants to buy a dongle that's confirmed to work. Thanks! :smile_phones:

Mine's an Azio BTD-V400. It also uses the CSR Harmony software (which I prefer) in place of the standard Windows Bluetooth interface.

Does anyone know what material balanced armatures are made of (specifically)

I believe it is made of similar materials as dynamic drivers, since most of its workings are still based on a dynamic driver

Except that they have a metal shell outside, which gives the BA a mostly "fixed" sound so the drivers can be combined to the desire of the manufacturer
