Multi-IEM Review - 318 IEMs compared (NarMoo R1M added 07/03/14 p. 936) - Page 6

post #76 of 14151
Yeah nice review on the e-Q7! Another 10/10 from joker. But my wallet doesn't appreciate your rating
post #77 of 14151
joker you should take a look at post #7. you got that titled 2A but in the first post that section should be 1C since the iem there definitely didnt cost 150-250 though I wish it did

Fixed, thanks. Also, the IEM in bcpk's pic is a Cyclone PR1 Pro.

What a chart, a great resource. I really enjoyed reading your e-Q7 review, as I have had my pair for a couple of weeks now. I agree with pretty much all of your points, with the exception being that I didn't think the cable microphonics are bad at all, and a slider would have been a good thing to add to the "missing accessory" list. I'm sure the ones you were using were broken in, but for me the upper mids really smoothed out with time. I never thought of the treble as rolled off, but you probably have better sensitivity up there than I do

That would be incorrect about the broken in part. I used them max 30 hours or so before sending it to joker and he was aware of the hours I put on them. However joker did burn them in and he did mention listening to lots of songs during the review so I skipped the burning in part I made my own chin slider so may thats why its not in the missing accessory list :P

I put quite a few hours on them, probably around 150, before writing up the review. Whether the treble sounds rolled off or not depends on what you're comparing them to. They sound okay next to the Turbines and the TF10, maybe a bit strained up high. But next to the ATH-CK90Pro or the ATH-CK100 I've been using for the past two days they sound like there's a huge chunk cut off at the top. Oh and I did mention the cable slider. I just call it a "cord cinch" .

x2, thanks for yet another great review! x3 @grokit, no trouble with microphonics here. x4@ joker, I concur, next to the CK100 the Ortofon's treble definitely sounds lacking.

Great review joker. And for those who are annoyed by the lack of a cable slider/cinch, might I suggest the DIY alternative of a small rubber band?
It'll slide up and down, and hold those pesky cables in place, and likely even help with microphonics.

^ Hey, you've stolen my invention!

I just cut a black twist-tie short and wind it around the cable a bit:



I like it because it's easy to adjust the tension

I knew I should have checked back before I wrote that, lol

In looking at the specs for the nozzle size I see that the ADDIEM and the Meelec M6 are both listed as 4mm. Has anyone tried M6 tips on an ADDIEM? I have an awful time trying to get a seal and I am thinking the M6 tips might help.
post #88 of 14151
I'll take that table off you joker, although I take your point there is an awful lot of data there for one graph. Still, I might break it up into a few smaller ones and see if I can come up with something useful.

Allow me to add my thanks, |joker|. This thread was a big help in my purchase of the Panasonic RP-HJE900.

I'm feeling another problem coming on, though...now I want to upgrade my home phones - Sennheiser HD 497s...I feel myself sliding down a slippery & expensive slope....

By the time you feel yourself slipping, it's already too late!!
