You can try Dunu DN-1000.

Can you tell us more how DN-1000 sounds better than DBA02-MKII in term of bass & treble?

Yes, definitely. Tighter, more detailed bass, clearer, colder mids and a more emphasized treble makes the DN-1000 a much better IEM IMO. To be fair it does cost almost twice as much.

The bass is much better, having much more impact and veing very fast. From memory, the mids are a bit warmer and the treble less bright. Vocals are a bit more upfront on the DN 1000 if I remember correctly.

Gotcha. Well I've got the SM2 now and definitely don't want less bass; I'm after more aggressive upper mids and treble for rock/metal. Even without the filters they still sound unnatural with "real" music; you're right to compare them to the UM3X, I'd say they are basically the same but with a slightly more blended sound and bigger soundstage. Luckily I got them for $100 so I'm not too disappointed :P

 

I've been delaying a GR07 purchase for ages on principle due to their lack of replaceable cable...*whine* I refuse to give in though! I've heard rumors so I'm holding out.

 

Can't wait to hear your take on the InEar SD3, it's been tickling my fancy for some time.

I would have a tough time labeling the SE535 as "fun". It doesn't have as much as the SM2, that's for sure. In general I think of "fun" as more of a v-shaped signature (think "rock" EQ present) which in this is case is closest to the GR07 (or better yet GR07 BE). The SM2 has a warmer sound with more relaxed upper mids. Again, not really "fun" for me, personally at this stage - more of a UM3X competitor in the musician's monitor space.

Not sure of the rating for the DN-1000 yet. I like it quite a lot but its treble is not entirely smooth and can be a little excessive. For example it's more prone towards sibilance than the MA750. Different sound signatures, with the DN-1000 being more v-shaped.

It's a very good earphone. I prefer the less bassy SD-2, though. Reviews should be up soon.

Is it possible to improve the bass tighter and to reduce the brightness in DBA02-MKII by different type of the ear buds tips?

post #12366 of 14106
Could you do a review on the Audio Technica IM-50? Thanks man, I'm glad to have such a knowledgeable source to look to for IEM advice.

Why do you want a tighter bass on something thay already has tight bass? Comply tips soften the sound but they don't tighten the bass.

I like Shure Olive tips, they take away just a bit of the bright edge without effecting the overall sound as much as Complys - plus they're more durable and more comfortable. Don't know what you mean about the bass, it's very tight already.

Sorry I misunderstood the bass in DBA02-MKII. It is tight.

Does the Shure Olive tip fit well on the nozzle of DBA02-MKII ?
Does it make the bass more punchy and deeper?
post #12370 of 14106

I don't think foam tips make the bass deeper and more punchy. From my experience single flange silicone tips (this is a VERY diverse category) tend to give the punchiest and deepest bass. But I haven't used any olives, just comply and vsonic foams. I did however love comply tips on my R-50 because they do add some kind of texture to the bass. Like the soft reverberations of a finger plucked bass guitar. You can almost see the string vibrate.

After changing to Shure's olive tip, I found it cuts down a bit of brightness of the original sound of DBA02-MKII.

I feel DBA02-MKII is no so good for song that emphasize heavy bass like dance/rock music. :(

Don't have one at this time. Maybe (hopefully) next year, especially if ATH decides to release these in the US...

post #12373 of 14106

Hi joker, thanx to you i bought mh1c 6 months back. they are awesome but have terrible fitting and cord. they just keep falling when on the move. so im thinking of buying another sets better sounding than these. I listen to almost all types of genres, more of hip hop, edm , classic rock. IMHO amount of bass on the mh1c should be the minimum for the iem, i cant comment on the quality.

Please suggest me good iem. my budget max 150 usd. My choices till now- Westone 3 , vsonic gr07be, vsonic vc1000, vsonic vsd1s, jvc fxt90, yamaha eph100.. Any help is appreciated by anyone. :)
