Meelectronics A-161 is a good choice? I prefer classical music..

Very nice review of the R-50 and I figured you'd give it a 9.2 like most of the other TWFK.  Now a lot more people will buy them because my words don't carry the weight yours does.

Thanks for your answer and reviews joker.

I've got one final question.

 

If the only shortcomings one finds on the gr07 is sibilance and want of more subbass quantity, what would be your recommendation?

Does the eph-100 suffice? Or are there better options?

Unfortunately, you should update your DBA-02 mkII review because the price is now $198.90 plus $10 shipping: http://www.musicaacoustics.com/wp/headphones/fischer-audio-dba-02-mkii/

 

Oh wow, that's a bit of a hike. I'll have to update the price with the next edit. Doesn't look like the $10 shipping is mandatory, though:

All Musica Acoustics product prices include shipping. However, if you would prefer Express Mail Service (EMS), choose it from the pull down menu. EMS is trackable, signatory, and delivers almost anywhere within five business days. Its cost is $10.00 on top of your purchase.

Should work very well unless you require a large/out-of-the-head soundstage.

Thanks beerchug.gif. I feel like I could happily use them as my main earphones with the tiny bit of tweaking I've done.

Maybe one of the two new versions of the GR07? There's an MKII and a Bass Edition. I've heard neither but supposedly they are tuned in the direction you want to go.

 

The EPH-100 has the right tuning but it just isn't quite as clean-sounding as the GR07. Otherwise it's as good a choice as any.

Excellent. I love the R-50 review. Makes me want to go for it.

That proves my point about since Joker rated them high more people are going to get them even though I've been telling people the same thing for months.

I'm told the MH1C needs ~100 hrs of burn in for the bass to become tight and controlled, I'm skeptical, but giving it a try. We shall see.

Yeah, I'm glad that I got them from your suggestions..Was looking @ R-50,GR07 , EPH-100 and TF10, hopped up on TF10 and R-50 from your suggestions ..I should get a BA-200 soon :D

 

I'm liking my MH1C a bit more than R-50 for my musical preferences, could BA-200 an upgrade on this or which one do you suggest? or eQ-5? Whats your opinion too |joker|?

Sorry for the insistence. Here in Portugal, the choice is reduced. I listen to mostly classical music and rock. My hypotheses are:
Astrotec AM-90 .. £ 34
I3C-S Dunu .......... £ 50
Creative Auvarna In Ear 2 .. £ 50
Head-Direct RE0 .. £ 55
Etymotic MC5 reserch .. £ 55
Meelectronic A161 ... £ 70
What is the best chance for me? (2 or 3 best)
The RE0 will need to amp since I have a Sansa Clip +?
Thank you

I haven't heard the BA-200 and the e-Q5 is not an upgrade over the R-50 per se, just a smoother and mellower sound.

Really don't know what sound signature you prefer. The AM-90 is a safe way to try balanced armature sound without breaking the bank. The I 3C-S is a good deal if it's cheaper even than the MC5. The RE0 or A161P would be jumping straight into the deep end as far as fairly neutral/accurate sound signatures go. The RE0 actually sounds quite good with the clip. The RE-ZERO is even better.

Great review as always Joker! Man, you are unbelievable! After your R-50 review, I ordered my R-50s but I think I will need replacement tips for them. Which aftermarket tips work best for R-50? Should I choose Etymotic triple flanges or MEElectronics triple flanges? Which one is more comfortable and offers better sound?
