I could only find the ah-c101 in my area and the price is at ~100$...

 

So in general, which ones are the punchiest low-mid to mid-bass hitters on the market?

   if you are after heavy loads of bass , c-12 can do mid bass , you can opt for c-101 , its the same thing , i find c-100 a bit balanced compared to cc51 .

In addition to physical duress, I'd be very concerned about the effects of sweat. The salts in sweat are very corrosive!

I personally would not use a pricey set of IEMs for working out. Rather, I'd get a less valuable set specifically for the gym.

I looked at your review for the 750 and I noticed that someone asked you to compare them to the FXD and you said the 750 overall have more bass, but are warmer.

 

My question is what does that actually mean? In order to see what sound signatures I like I've been playing around with the EQ (although that probably wont do that good seeing as my headphones arent neutral) and I often find myself bumping the higher end (I guess it's more sparkly and brighter), as well as the areas around the 250-500Hz (I don't know hwo to describe it, but when I go back to normal, everything feels kinda empty), so I'm not sure what that means/

 

If it's likely to help, my mate has just bought himself some A161Ps which I could have a listen to as well. 

 

What types of music are warm headphones more suited to? 

 

Thanks so much!

Hi, I'm new too the IEM side. I have decent bookshelf speakers and a sub for 2.1 system. I prefer a neutral sound, leaning towards the warmer side. I'm trying to decide between the Logitech UE 700 (Heard it has less silibance than the UE 700). Also considering the etymotic hf5, TDK ba200. Which one is better? I am open to other suggestions, but want Good fit, preferably compact fit , and decent looks.

Tdk Ba200 is the warmest sounding IEM of your list.

How is the soundstage? Also how detailed is it compared to the ue700? How does the UE 700 compare to other twfk iems?

I doubt I'll get a go at the K10.

Warm is just a preference - many people think a warm tonal character sounds more natural, or at least more "rich". All other things equal a set with more bass will sound warmer than one with less bass. 

 

Definitely have a listen to the A161P - it's pretty close to neutral and may give you a slightly better idea of what you do or don't like.

The UE700 and HF5 are not warm-leaning at all in my opinion. The BA200 is better for what you seem to be after, or even the sub-$100 RE-400 from HiFiMan.

Hey joker! Nice to see you're still truckin. As usual your reviews are fantastic and are quite comprehensive. I've used this thread a boatload of times as a gold standard when recommending IEMs to my friends who are just getting into higher quality headphones.

 

My question for you - have you encountered anything that's basically an upgraded version of the RE262 (specifically, extension at both ends and detail in the treble)? I've skimmed over most of your sub-250 IEMs and didn't see anything that would do the trick, or looked large, awkward, and low on comfort. From what I can tell the RE-400 is what comes the closest, but it's more of a mix between the RE-ZERO and the RE-262. Any other alternatives? Thanks!

Two fast questions for our gran visir ljokerl: what should be a sound rating for: 1) Xiaomi Piston 2.0 2) Apple Earpods (bundled with Iphone). Thanks.

ljokerl, any chance of a review of the JH Audio Roxanne in the near future?

The RE-600 would be a slightly better option than the RE-400 for this, though it is loads more expensive. TDK BA200 is good for that slightly-warmer-than-neutral sound with good end-to-end extension. Sony MDR-7550 is good. too. Would call either a clear RE262 upgrade but they fit your reqs.

I haven't tried the Piston.

 

I have tried the earpods and thought the sound was a little worse than with the Monoprice 8320 so probably somewhere in the low 7.x range.

JH Audio used to reply to my emails but doesn't anymore so... probably not. 

post #13035 of 14100

Joker, my hero, any chance you've tried the new Audio Technica line? Specifically the IM02. 

 

Or if anyone has comparisons to some of the TWFK's...
