Multi-IEM Review - 320 IEMs compared (Xiaomi Piston 2 added 08/21/14 p. 958) - Page 964

ljokerl which one do you think that isolates better, Philips TX2 or SoundMagic E10?

My friend is looking for some IEM with mic (not interested in Pistons) and I guess this two should be a nice option for the price.

 looks nice !!

Fingers crossed for a chance to try the M100 at some point.

Neither, really - isolation is below average on both. I guess if pressed I would pick the E10 but if I were looking for a budget headset with mic and decent isolation I'd go for a T-Peos D200R or Rich200 (the latter of which has a signature not very different from the TX2).

Hi guys, can you help me decide between the klipsh x7i, etymotic HF5, and 215-K? Is the detachables really that worth it? I listen to Hip-Hop most of the time, and a bit of EDM. If you guys have any other suggestion then I'm open ears. I don't need something SUPER bass heavy, but I need it to be there. I need the iphone controls, and I need it to be durable.

I really doubt you want an earphone as flat as the HF5 for hip-hop and EDM. Haven't tried the X7i but the SE215 is a good pick if you need powerful but not overbearing bass and good build quality. Keep in mind the 3-button iPhone cable will cost you extra.

RHA MA-750i is $30 more, but sounds like it would fit your needs pretty well.

Do you think the the deatchable cables are worth picking? It seems like a pretty good choice.

I'd also add, as I've heard several people say, that by today's standards the SE215 is quite overpriced and not a great value for the money. Add to that the $50 cable and you could do a lot better for the price.

I like detachable cables in general, but keep in mind that the market for replacement cables hasn't fully developed yet so there's not a whole lot of options for reasonably-priced replacements (this may change a year or two down the line, though). If you get the SE215 and have to buy a $40 replacement cable every year it'll be a while before it becomes worth it compared to buying, say, a $60 fixed-cable earphone every year instead. 

 

However, a lot of the great-sounding earphones don't have a mic/remote option (especially a 3-button one for iPhones) so you're not exactly swimming in alternatives.

I guess that depends on whether you value any of the features of the SE215 besides its sound. For example the Sony MH1C sounds at least as good as the SE215 with a similar sound signature for well under $50, but its cable is a pain and the remote only works fully on Xperia devices.

its a mixed bag , everyone has their own preferences , just look into as much as reviews you can , and you will have a idea of its sound characteristics and other things , for a instance he likes his se215 , but i dont , they are superly over priced , i like crystals from hisound more , others are head-fi constants , you are bound to like gr07 , ex1000 /7550 , and re-400 .
