Anyone know what the IEM depicted below is? It looks like a black glossy plastic pebble and a unique plug with a fat-ish glossy cable. I saw someone wearing it and was intrigued since it didn't have a logo. I'm guessing it was a universal... Just curious.

Thank you for your answer. I'm going for the VC02.

It looks like an Audio Technica IM in-ear.

Hi Ljokerl,

I want to thank you immensely once more. I pereodically look over your comparison threads (and have a great deal of fun with them) and today i found the inear stagedivers which i otherwise would have never stumbled upon. I live in europe and a lot of the other products are often difficult to get (especially with added customs time shipping and taxes) but with the inear i got lucky. I am still carefully going over them versus the sm64 but i think the stagediver 3 will  win out.

I had seen your reviews of the ie800 and the re600 on innerfidelity and i think you also mention hte model a few times int his thread. I was wondering when they will be added as their own entries?

Also I saw you mention the westone es5 a few times. I am pretty interested in how it compares to the jh13 and if it will get its own entry too?

I am pretty interested to see how the ie800 compares to other dynamics (dynamics are my favourite) like the inears but also to the top model from akg obviously.

Thanks again for the great and continuing work! Its always a joy to see that new entries have been added and after all this time i really know what i am looking for and of your descriptions will match what i am looking for.

Greetings, Anouk,

Looked into it and while it does a bit, it wasn't.
Here are the differences from the AT IM series:



The plug housing is huge. The cylinder extended past the edges if the dudes cellphone.

Please excuse the sloppy cellphone markup.

Thanks for trying!

Red Giant Ossicle A03 perhaps.

The plug looks similar too

That could be a number of IEMs. What came to mind are EarSonics. Or even Westone.

Edit: by the way, great drawing.

Nope. I actually tested the ossicle out haha. Cable is thicker than the plug. The plug housing is about as long as the plug and 3x the diameter. The outside part that someone can see when it's in the ear is flat except where it tapers in at the bottom a bit and the edges are a bit rounded. It's glossy black plastic that is reflective and no logo.

To be honest, except the most exact proportions, my rendering is reasonably accurate so if someone had seen it before, they would probably know off the bat.

Thanks for taking a shot!

Nah, they don't use mmcx connectors. Judging by the connector and the plug it was probably a shure iem.

Flat = Faceplate = Definitely Custom? :smile:

Haha thanks!

I don't think it's earsonics from what I've seen but I'll take a look. I've provided more description in responses above.

It's definitely not westone unless their new models are radically different in shape and design. Also, not a braided cable biggrin.gif

Nope housing is too boxy for the Shure style. Also, in case anyone is wondering, it's not translucent or transparent.

I'm leaning toward but It didn't look like any custom I'd ever seen. It looked like a machined and designed body, one piece, rounded edges but flat sides. It wasn't a faceplate in the strictest sense and it actually tapered in at the bottom toward the ear, unlike most customs. And the housing where the plug is only extended about halfway as far as the bottom part.



Joker: let me know if you want me to take this to a separate thread. I just wanted to see if maybe you or one of the many that have seen a ton of IEMs here would recognize it before as something common before I started a stupid separate thread.

Perhaps a StageDiver with black (aftermarket) cable? (x2 on great drawing)

 

Edit: take a look at this post.

Interesting. Honestly, not a clue... black ergonomic-fit IEMs makes me think Westone or Earsonics but those are more rounded except for the original SM2 (which uses a non-detachable braided cable). Doesn't really look like a StageDiver to me, especially the way (angle) the cable attaches to the housing.

Hi, between the Phonak PFE 112 and the Vsonic VC1000, which would be the better option? I can't decide which one to get. 

 

Thanks in advance :)
