Multi-IEM Review - 319 IEMs compared (T-Peos D200R added 08/01/14 p. 947) - Page 827

Regarding the Noble 4S, does the plate merge seemlessly into the silicone shell?

post #12392 of 14356

Hello Joker,

thanks to your magnificent list I ended up buying a pair of rs-50's and vc-1000's, which I both quite enjoyed (especially the rs-50).

 

Now I wondered which would be the next logical step up, just in terms of sound quality, from the RockIt Sounds.

My preferences are neutrality; tight, punchy yet not emphasized bass; good soundstage and overall clarity (money isn't of importance, I would also consider buying customs).

 

Thanks in advance,

Bauchspeck

Price not necessary? Go for custom-iem roxanne.

Sorry, I guess I didn't put it very well.

I just wanted to know which would be the next improvement over the rs-50's, not the best IEM's I could possibly get.

Can't afford to buy 1000 euro headphones, I would like to spend 300 euro (or less), but can stretch it up to 480 if improvements justify it.

Contact Piotrs Custom Art, and I'm sure you'll find the solution,

Only one custom I've heard in that price range can do what the EPH-100 can do - the 1964EARS V3. Still, it really depends on what you're trying to see improved. Bass quantity won't go up from EPH-100, for example, but clarity and imaging will.

Thanks! 
Can you ballpark the overall rating you'd give to the Dunu's? That would be swell :D

I can see where the silicone meets acrylic (mostly because the faceplate is colored) but in terms of feel there's no boundary. I'd say it's quite seamless.

Next step would probably be an Ety ER4S. After that you'd have to go for at least a mid-level custom like the Lime Ears LE3 or 1964 V6-Stage in order to really "upgrade".

Ballpark - RE-400/GR07 level.

Hey Joker hope you're having a happy holidays.

 

So I'm looking for an upgrade over my current Klipsch X10s. I've tried IEMs over the past year from Westone 3, Sennheiser IE80, UE TF10, Yamaha EPH-100. All of them have been pretty good but not exactly what I've been looking for. I'm looking for a comfortable IEM that isolates pretty good with clear mids & highs with an impactful bass but not so bloated to the point where it intrudes on everything else. I listen to mostly r&b, hip hop, alternative rock, acoustic, and some trance/electronica.

 

I've been looking at the Audeo PFE 232 for the longest time and now that they have been discounted finally are something in my ballpark. I've also been eyeing the Shure SE846 and Sennheiser IE800 but I'm kind of afraid to spend that much on an IEM. Also at the prices I'm looking at it would it just be better to go with customs? I will be using these mostly on the go through my ipod and on my laptop. Still looking into a portable amp/dac to go along with it.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think that the Dunu is heaps better than the GR07 MKII but I guess we all have our preferences...
post #12400 of 14356

i was wondering: how well do the Yamaha EPH-100 lend themselves to over-the-ear fitment?

would they stay in place without cable-guides?

do these generally fit securely? (straight down and over-the-ear)

thank you.....

I typically wear them over-ear with no problems - the cable is a little springy but once they are in place they stay there just fine.  Even better if you wear glasses actually (at least for me anyway).  I find them to fit quite securely both ways as long as you have tips that fit/seal your ear well.

Hmm, perhaps these are the next to try with all this talk over them recently :p I understand they are more of a slight v-shape comparatively but they sound engaging and fun.  Going to check out a few reviews on them now!

I don't find the mids recessed at all actually.

Brooko has a long review and I posted one a while back as well. Do check out H20Fidelity's comparison of the H-200, DN1K and AX60.

I too find the Dunu quite a bit better than GR07, especially clarity, seperation and soundstage. I don't really consider them on similar levels.

EPH100 work fine over-ear and the fit is really secure either way with their unique double flanges. The cable isn't ultra along though so if you're tall like me, you might prefer wearing them down.

May I ask why you chose the X10 over the TF10 and EPH-100 in the long run? Might help figure out if the PFE 232 or IE 800 is the right step for you, or if a similarly-priced custom or other earphone would be better. Also, the IE 800 really doesn't isolate a whole lot, especially since it sounds best with a shallow seal.

I've listened to them for maybe five or six hours, just providing some very initial thoughts when asked. Full review is still weeks away. I did send them in to InnerFidelity for measurements also, which we should see next month, hopefully.

+1. I wore them over-the-ear and found them secure and comfortable with no cable guides. No issues with the cable length here but I'm only 5'10.
