See here for one of the reasons I don’t think the DN-1000 won't be an upgrade over a good TWFK set for all listeners: http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-310-iems-compared-impressions-of-t-peos-narmoo-astrotec-olasonic-p-870-02-24-14/12960#post_10276305



 



In the end it really depends on your requirements. If you want deep, impactful bass the DN-1000 will blow the B2 away. If you want something that’s flat across the bass and midrange, the DN-1000 isn’t it.



 




I haven't spent much time with the Momentum but compared to the HD25 and SHE3580 the A63 and BA200 are quite different. The BA200 is warm but generally pretty balanced - it is more reminiscent of the Momentum than the other two. It may not be the most exciting sound for EDM but it's accurate and versatile.

The A63 is mid-forward and pretty punchy. I like but I'm not sure it can compete with the BA200 in overall SQ. It is a lot cheaper though.

The MA750 is bass-heavy and also warm, but less smooth than the BA200 and with a lot more bass power.

They are all good earphones IMO, just different, but the BA200 is my fave of the bunch. If you don't mind a pretty balanced sound and can find the BA200 in that price range, go for it.

Thank you for the reply joker. :-)
Wich of them is more similar to the she3580 and hd25 then? I lile the balance of both.
Any other suggestions? :-)

Of those, the MA750. The Dunu DN-1000 is also quite good for a v-shaped HD25-ish sound ;).

Hi, so i have been shipped 2 defective Beyerdynamic DT 990 pro 250. Feeling a lil burned and may try a IEM under 200 instead. Whats the differencec from those beyers or something equivalent vs a 200 and under IEM. I like bass, hip hop and will also be using it for heavy gaming/movies. Any suggestions? I have the vsonic vsd1 and found them to be amazing especially for only 50 but still want a higher grade IEM

Cool joker... :-)
Thanks. :-)

What do you think would be an upgrade the philips she3580? Something that sounds similar in terms of tonality and signature but 1 or 2 notches better....

I rrally like the philips.... They are cheap and they do everything pretty well from indie to tock to edm....

By the way.... Are you still thinking of making the review on the philips? :-)

If you like the VSD1 and are willing to spend $200 the GR07 Bass Edition and Dunu DN-1000 would be worth looking at as upgrades.

I still think the DN1k is a good upgrade even though it's brighter. The MA750 is darker like the 3580 but differs in other ways. For sound signature alone the closest would probably be the RBH EP1 (even though it has somewhat more forward mids) but it's not enough of an upgrade to justify its price tag compared to the Philips. 

 

Yes, I still need to review the Philips at some point...

Can only find those dunus on ebay not sure how i feel about that. What about the jvc ha fxt90? Only thing turning me away from the gro7 is vsonic saying the vsd1 is 80 percent of the gro7. For gaming purposes i need an iem with big Soundstage and 3d imaging. So many choices

Read it. Excellent post.Only thing is...have bought all my iems after reading Jokers reviews. His reviews are very consequent and I trust them to fit my musical taste.

 

For example he mention the IM50 as borderline bass heavy, while in other reviews its not a real bassheavy iem. So bit contradictory.

Joker eraly on useds ety er4s and HF5 as reference, and considers that bass a neutral (as to my understanding). The HF5 is one of the IEMs I have that have the least bass, so it's all about figuring out where you are on the scale compared to his references. Other reviewers are good as well, but the bass level set to "referrence" is one of the consistent differences.

Yes, IM50 is not in the bass heavy category but it is not bass light either. It should be more than enough for non bass-heads. If you are looking for some serious bass head IEMs like IE8 or at least Philips 3580 then these are definitely not for you.

But with Joker, he has written so many reviews and can compare to just about anything you've heard that you can get a good idea from what Joker writes about the sound signature of any other IEM. He also does a pretty good job of relating the price to the sound quality, and doesn't fall victim to "FOTM syndrome". That Audio-Technica review is nice and thorough, but after reading it I still have no idea what any of those sound like, and I had no idea if he was describing $50 IEMs or $800 IEMs.

You can also get the DN-1000 from lendmeurears – they ship worldwide as far as I know.

 

The VSD1 doesn’t lag far behind the GR07 in performance. It also doesn’t lag far behind the FXT90. This is known as diminishing returns – you’ll always be paying more for that last bit of performance. Audio is not known for large incremental games per dollar spent, except at the low end or if your starting point is not very good (which is clearly not the case with the VSD1).

I personally haven’t tried them. Need to finish the CKX5iS review before queuing up any more Audio-Technicas.

I got a spare recently as well when they were $6.99 on Groupon :beerchug:.

hi joker. got a question. how would you describe the sound signature of noble 4c/s? is it closer to 1964v6(more neutral) or jh13pro(slightly bassier), or as what they put on the website "ideal pairing with vocal, acoustic, and classical music"?
