thanks a lot.

i dont really care about signature right now as long the fit/isolation really improves from the pl50

something else i should consider before deciding?

thanks. they ARE cheap but no international shipping. and amazon shipping rates to here are just insane!

i did considered the HF5 before as i dont need a microphone. but i'd rather get them at a local store , even they're more expensive, about $130, and only 1-year warranty. but it's still more than my actual budget. unless they get really cheaper

thanks a lot as always

and nice review of the E10

Can you give an estimate time as to when the TF10 and Miracles will be reviewed?

He could always try some olives on his pl50 first. They don't need to be fully pushed on to stay put so better isolation plus deeper fit. It's what I used to use.

indeed i tried most of my tips "fully pushed on" but it still didnt work and just gave a less comfort.

as for the olives, i dont know how much different they're from the pl50 foams. i just now they're the same length, and with the large size foams THAT was not  comfort

Not with any certainty

post #3593 of 14118

Just want to say thanks for all the work you put into this thread, although it's hurt my wallet a bit.

First the RE0, then the Turbines, then the Mi-9 and now the Klipsch S2. I saw they were $21 at amazon and thought the design looked right to wear under a full face helmet with hopefully more bass than my er-6. Holy smokes, they sure sound a lot better than a 20 buck phone should.

post #3594 of 14118

I would like some advice. I own several IEM's but they all lack something.

I owned a RE0 and now own a RE-ZERO, but I don't like the adapter with the ZERO, it makes noise when you touch it and is too bulky in my amp or dap.

The RE0 was almost as good only looking at sound and I could easily lay down on my ear listening to music. Same deal with the Xcapes I used to own. Perhaps one of the new reincarnations is a good option.

I also own TD-III, M1 and DDM's, all of them sound good but are not that comfortable to lay down with.

So what I am looking for is a IEM that is very comfortable, small enough to not be disturbing in your ears when laying down on one ear and sound good.

The ability to have an very good and easy fit and seal and no or little microphonics.

Good mids and very good extension both ways. Not too bass-heavy, musical with a hint of warmth, does not have to be very easy to drive and I do not mind some sibilance and brightness.

Any recommendations?

Yeah, I found the PL50 pretty boring.  I'll let you know what I think of the RE0 with j-rock, otherwise, my favorite so far for j-rock is the Sony MDR-E888.

thank you. i'm waiting for your opinion of the RE0.

as for the mdre888. arent those regular non-isolation earbuds? i already have a variety of earbuds, being the Yuin PK1 my last purchase.
 but thanks for the idea

 

post #3599 of 14118

Yeah they're non-isolation earbuds, just sayin'.

 

Apparently the RE0 and CK10 sound very similiar, and I already gave my thoughts on the ck10 and j-rock in my ck10 review if you search for it, so that should give you a rough idea of what I'll think of the RE0.  On the other hand the RE0 is a dynamic driver and is supposed to have more natural sounding mids or something like that.  I think J-rock and similiar genres will favour a slightly more visceral, natural, coloured sound, as opposed to reference quality, but that's just my hunch.

thnks. i'll read your ck10 review
