Less than 5 hours. Stock Bi-Flanges.

 

Innerfidelity has a FR chart that sort of confirms the peak. It is easily cut with EQ though, so it's not that big of an issue. I'm also sensitive to that region. A small midbass and peak cut make them really good.

oh, i didnt get bi-flanges. just 3 pair of singles. will try them with some meelec ones. but still strange, i;m not that forgiving when i comes to peaks. far from the CKM500 for sure. actually i'd like some extra treble on these ss01 :blink:

Extra 12khz and up could use some, yes. It drops off sharply there.

Mine has tons of burn-in. It just has quite a bit more presence in the 3-6k range than the RE-400.

Can you please tell me how the EPH-100 compares to the MH1C? Is it a significant upgrade in the sound? Is it a logical upgrade to the Mh1C or does it sound different? Also, how comfortable are these for smaller canals? I use the smallest size tips for all IEMs. If not these what would you recommend as an upgrade to the MH1c with slightly more forward mids?

I think it is a good upgrade but I wouldn't recommend it if you have smaller canals. The MH1C is not easy to upgrade from - there's just not many higher-end dynamics that have such warm and smooth sound. The RBH EP2 comes to mind but it's not a very significant upgrade for a whole lot more $$. You might be better off keeping the MH1C and playing with the EQ a little. 

 

Hi Joker,

 

Do you think the TDK BA-200 would be a better fit than the EPH100SL as an upgrade from the MH1c? The fit of the MH1C is what is putting me off completely and I can hardly wear them. However I do like the signature. A little more mids/bass is fine as long as the treble is smooth.

Sorry, the BA-200 continues to elude me - I've never heard it. The RBH EP1 reminded me of an upgraded MH1C when I tried it but I'd have to spend more time with it for more specific impressions. I also didn't think it was quite as good as the EPH-100 overall.

Wow, that's very impressive, especially for the Flux. Also makes the Flux Pro more or less competitive with the UE 600.

After your glowing review I placed it in my "Save for Later" cart on Amazon. When I saw the price change notification, I immediately pulled the trigger. Excited to get them in 2 days with Prime shipping!

I'd be curious as to your thoughts. Hopefully I'm not crazy with these - the few people who did buy them on my recommendation (at full price) seemed pleased, but there's certainly no hype or buzz or whatnot, which is almost too bad. I still use these with my phone because the MH1C's cable bugs me.

Added a short custom IEM buyer's guide outlining six of the sets I like best here.

post #12146 of 14059

Hello,

 

I'm looking for an IEM that has a slightly stronger bass emphasis than the W4R, neutral mids and a slightly lower treble peak. Any suggestions?

 

I used to own the GR07 BEs and have been thinking about re-buying them. I see VSONIC, however, has a new line up coming so I've been reluctant to pull the trigger on them again.

What is your budget and are you looking for universal or custom IEM?
post #12148 of 14059
Oh, sorry... my budget is $350 and would rather stick to universals.

I have, howevever, been reading up on the custom 1964-Qs at the $500 range.

I'm looking for an IEM with a similar sound to that of my newly acquired SRH1540 for on the go. So, all suggestions under the $500 range will be greatly appreciated, both universal and custom.

I'm looking for a comparable replacement for my Phonak PFE 022s, I had the grey filters but I much preferred the green.  Phonak is no longer manufacturing these (sad).

- The bass was just about perfect for me, I wouldn't want to go much less than the PFE 012/022, but I don't need to go a ton more either

- I would like a bit bigger sound stage, but this is ancillary

- Comfort was amazing, this is huge for me

- Mic/ + 1-button control was very handy

- I got VERY little fatigue from these, I am prone to fatigue when the highs are too pronounced.

- I've grown to prefer over-the-ear

- Looking to spend $100ish

 

I'm waiting to hear some reviews on the HiSound BA100.  I know that's in the queue, so I'll be patient.  If anyone has heard the PFE 022's and knows of a similar off the top of their head, I would love to hear your recommendations.

 

If it helps, I went back to listening to my Xears TD II 100 Titans, and my ears are mourning the loss of my PFE 022's.

 

I've been a long-time lurker here, and I love this thread, I've been sending people to it for years now, so thanks for that Joker.

I just want to bestow a HUGE thank you for making this thread. Working my way through it but wow - just unbelievably enlightening. Thank you for helping this luddite up his game dramatically.
