You should definitely give it a try at least!

 

If you're in Montreal sometime before the holidays, you can try mine. After that, I may only have the JH Roxanne :devil_face:

joker, have you ever heard the SA7? I'm wondering what you think of them. I decided to pick one up as I've never owned a Sleek Audio iem and price wasn't too bad as they have a sale right now.

This quest is pretty much about finding an alternative to the JH13fp.  Once I approach that price point... no point stay universal. ;)

I guess if you normally use the smallest tips with any other earphone and get a better seal than with, say, a medium, you have narrow ear canals.

Hey, got one last question. I know I said I wanted an IEM for under $50 but at this point I just want something like the FXT90 but with a bit more bass/subbass. I listen to R&B and Hip-Hop mostly with a good amount of Rock and Pop thrown in as well. The M11s that I have just are not cutting it, the music is not as immersive anymore lol. 

 

Thanks a lot!

I'd check out Shure SE215 if I were you. Insane isolation, super ergonomic fit, and sounds just like what you bare describing: healthy bass that's not overdone, very clear mids, and smooth treble. The AT phones tend to be brighter and more aggressive so if you dislike harshness they might not be for you.

i'm really into the half-in-ear design because of it being a more *secure* fit,
but i'm also looking for isolation.
also, though i like bass, i don't like the mids too recessed, and i hate sibilance/harshness.
i was gonna go for the CKM500 but i'm afraid of the microphonics people describe!
would also go for the Fidelio S2/S1... but no isolation! :|

Congrats to the 300 ljokerl! Awesome job! Still can't believe that you are a single guy! I've recommended this thread to so many people already, cause it's better than many "professional", non-free reviews!

 

Enough flowers, the reason why I write this time: :)

 

For all of you who think about - or might one day think about - getting the Westone 2: I got a pair as a gift in April 2011 and immediately liked their imho clean sound and loved their very sturdy fit, something not all non-customized IEMs have.

 

However, after a few months they got damaged and thanks to Westones one-time-exchange-without-any-questions policy I got a new pair. Now, after approx. 22 months of daily and intensive usage, the jack starts to have a loose contact, causing dropouts every now and then. As always in the beginning of such problems, it now only occurs during movement, e.g. while riding a bike. But soon, they will be pretty useless.

 

Sad, cause I really liked them and hoped and expected them to be a bit more resistant, given their design and all. I already contacted Westone and they will give me an offer for a discounted exchange pair or upgrade for other Westone products.

 

As always, ljokerl's thread is my trusted place to see what I might choose, exchange or upgrade.

 

Thanks again!!

ichbinder

 

Edit: Anybody (ljokerl?) any thoughts on the Westone Adventure series? They sound like their robust design is for me, but given that they are about as expensive as the Westone 2 (I think), I fear that the more robust material causes less good sound for the overall same price...?

A failing jack can easily be repaired with $30 (?) worth of material and tools.. If it's only your jack that's failing and not the housings or something else, then you should reterminate them. Simply because it's damn cheap (someone you know probably has a voltmeter, soldering iron and soldering tin, you just have to get the plug) and then you can start to look around if you feel like it, without the pressing need to get a new pair within a week. That's how I would do if I had a failing jack.
