Multi-IEM Review - 318 IEMs compared (NarMoo R1M added 07/03/14 p. 936) - Page 887

post #13291 of 14150

Anyone care to recommend another IEM in the < $40 range that has just a small bit of of a V curve but not over the top?

 

Basically something like the M9's with more mids.  Way less bass than the Vsonic GR02's.

 

I just received the SoundMAGIC E10's, but they aren't quite what I'm looking for.  If anyone's interested they are for sale here:

I was sitting at the noble table and saw that iem during the SoCal meet. I sadly didn't try it but could have, bummer.

If you can increase your budget to $50, the SteelSeries Flux in-ear and the VSonic VSD1S comes to mind. I have these two and they are great with nice bass and smooth treble. Mids/vocals are clear. I also have the VSD1 and the VSD1LimitedEdition and the VSD1S is the best out of the three.

 

Others may recommend the Sony MH1C, but  have no experience with them.

What esteebin said - VSD1S is less bassy and more balanced than the GR02 with better overall sound quality. The Flux is more balanced still, but has a mild v-shape to it nonetheless. The MH1C doesn't qualify to be called v-shaped IMO - not enough rise at the top.

 

Curious as to why you didn't like the E10? They're pretty mildly v-shaped.

Yeah I haven't been this curious to try a new universal in a while. Might be the vague but alluring descriptions of the sound...

Hi all, i just received my VSonic VSD1S yesterday,

have used them only once, but would like to share that already these are my

favorite iems at the moment!

i have the id America Spark, the Klipsch S4, Meelec CW31, Meelec A161P, LG Quadbeats 2 and Sony MH1C.

of all these, i like the VSD1S most! and used it just once!

the fit is so good, with the adjustable nozzle, its a lot more secure than a straight-barrel design, yet doesn't feel like a half-in-ear like the CW31 and is also more comfortable.

the cable is great - yes, the MH1C is a lot less prone to tangling, and most of us know how terrible it is.

what i like about the cable is how low-profile it is, it doesn't bounce around, its strong yet soft, and it

doesn't deliver so much noise as my other iems.

i read a lot about the treble being sibilant, but i was pleasently surprised.

i was affraid i was gonn'a get a Klipsch-S4-sibilance, but it's miles away from that, not the case at all.

very happy with my purchase, thanks joker for your review -- it's thanks to you that i bought them!

Idk if its just me but the Fidue A63 reminds me of the Ie800

|joker|

does signature acoustics C-12 and DN-1000 has the same bass level?

compared to A63 and E30 can you describe the bass level of dn1k.

Thanks, ljokerl.  Based on your description, the Fidue definitely seems like it may be the most attractive option of the three.

 

Do you think I would see a marked improvement by stepping up to something like the Dunu DN-1000?  I know that it's not in the same price range of the ones that I wrote about, but if it's significantly better than the Fidue, I would consider it.

Would anyone here be able to compare the ATH-Im70? It released in Japan, so not sure. =P I was considering getting either the Im70 or RE-400. Although, on some reviews they are saying that the 400 has some build quality issues. Just looking for comfortable, long periods of listening. Movies, Videos, Games, basically an all-rounder. Or should I save some money and go with the VSD1S?

It is understandable.

 

Have you heard the Noble 3c before?  I am currently trying to decide between the 1964 v3 and the Nobel 3c.  Would you happen to have a preference between the two?  I generally like a bit more "energetic/fun" sound, and don't need tremendous bass.

 

Thanks so much, I can say we all appreciate the insight, and the resource you have provided in this thread.

The DN-2000 I'm sure I'll cover eventually. Not sure about the other two.

No, the C12 is a lot more mid-bassy than the DN-1000. The DN1000 has lots more deep bass than both the A63 and E30 and about as much mid-bass as the A63, but more than E30.

It also has a very different sound signature from the Fidue. It actually seems to me like the signature of the A63 might work better for you, but the DN-1000 has many advantages such as bass depth, clarity, treble extension and presence, and so on. As to whether it's worth it to spend more of your money, I can't really answer that one for you.

Haven't tried it. If you are looking for a balanced and accurate IEM, the RE-400 is worth the premium over the VSD1S. Otherwise the VSD1S will do what you want.

Sorry, I have not tried the 3C.

The looks, never actually heard the Fidue though. I do, however enjoy the IE 800. What would you rate it out of 10? I read your review on innerfidelity.
