This is why I have neglected to give it one.

Joker,
I recently got the Astrotec AX-35 a couple days ago as my first pair of Hybrid IEMs. From your short impressions you liked it enough to make a full review on it.
I was wondering if you can give a quick impression on it now that you've had it for quite a while and how it compares with other hybrids in its price range and up (specifically the DN-1000). What will I gain with the step up, and if it's worth it.
I tried different tips from Sony hybrid to VSonic (colorful) hybrids and their regular black silicone. I find the Sony and colorful VSonics to make the highs uncomfortable/annoying (maybe the smaller bore of the tips vs nozzle causes harmonics issues) and the VSonic black tips to be the best because it has similar bore size as stock but a little firmer.
Thanks.

Last year 1964 Ears had a Memorial weekend sale that included the V6 (the Stage had not yet been released), so there may be a good opportunity in a few weeks to save some money on a fantastic set of headphones.

If you email and enquire about the universals they may send you a discount code for $25 off.  At least that's what they did with me.  It was only the fear of taxes (I'm in UK) that stopped me ordering a pair of v6 universals.  I still think about it from time to time.  Maybe if that Memorial day sale happens this year I might just pull the trigger then (or not).

I would love if joker could take a look at the Xiaomi Piston and Moxpad X3 :D

It's the next review up for completion - should be done in a day or two. The touchy treble is one of its few flaws but on the whole I still think it's very good for $70-80. I'm using it with Comply T400s - they seem to dampen the treble peaks somewhat. Still, even at its best I don't think the AX-35 competes with the DN-1000 in bass (either quantity or quality) and clarity, and doesn't sound quite as natural in terms of note thickness and overall tonality.

 

Granted, bass and clarity are the two things the DN-1000 does extremely well, but that's what makes it a worthwhile step up from the AX-35. The Astrotecs don't have the greatest bass depth and can't match the explosive, dynamic nature of the DN-1000's bass. Despite the relatively bright signature, the AX-35 also still can sound a little muddy in the midrange while the DN-1000 does not.

Looking forward to it. I will be saving up for the DN-1k. The DN-2k is out of my budget, but I think I'll be happy with the 1k.

That would be great, i think they are kind of hyped....

I was going to buy the Moxpad X3 but after reading your review about the MEelectronics i changed my mind...

 

The M6 are all the same?

This one ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/MEElectronics-Over-the-Ear-Sports-Fi-M6-First-gernation-Headset-Bulk-Package-/130982442462?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item1e7f2975de) have "first generation" and the others don`t, i don`t care about caring bag, box or others stuff, just need the earphones and the eartips...

 

I`ll be waiting your answer to buy the clear one, they looks so great.

:( forget about it, they don`t ship to Brazil, and the others that ship are very expensive... i think i will stay with the Moxpad for now.

 

And Joker btw, yours and ClieOS reviews are one of the most referred reviews on Brazil, keep the great job. :L3000:

For what it's worth I enjoy the Moxpad's more than the M6. If you can get the Moxpad's cheaper it's a better deal.

Then again the Piston's are much more enjoyable than the Moxpad's wink.gif

If you're going to use them for workout I'd recommend the Moxpad's though since they fit much better in the ear and isolate better. If you're just going to use them to enjoy music I'd get the Piston's.

Hope this helps.

Thx for that, it really helped.

For US$20,00 with free shipping the X3 should be a better choice, since i'll use it while i'm working to work.

I'm just worried if they will last one year...

Going to buy again :L3000:

Hello everyone, I'm looking to buy in-ear headphones. I want them to be durable, have high sound quality and a good design (simple, black or white, nothing special). My price range is: $100-$150. Do you have any suggestions? I've been looking at the Atomic Floyd's Powerjax. I know that there sound quality isn't the best but I'm no sound expert so will I be able to notice a difference? My old earbuds are Apple's Earbuds, is the sound quality better in the Powerjax?
Thank you.

+1, although if his budget is $100-$150, he may want to look at Singolo and Doppio as well.
