I only have green/red/orange dampers frown.gif.

 

Has anyone found a place to order this thing http://hal-hen.com/cgi-bin/info.cgi?id=2506&ls=dc~P~107 ? I want to be able to extract filters without damaging them.

Which cheaper CIEM you would consider as most balanced and accurate (and thus similar to Etys). Did you hear Spiral Ear SE 1-way Pro?

 

I'm curious about your impressions on The Custom Art's Music One; hope to see the review soon.

 

Regarding remold I actually use my Etys with custom tips made by piotrus-g (I stop using triple flange due to that sometimes I very easily lost seal and this was very annoying).


The SE-3 is the only Spiral Ear I've tried but I should have my hands on the Music One soon.

 

Is the Lime Ears LE3 still out of budget?

I've listened to Peter's Music One and I've read review of average_joe, but due to your sound taste" I'm very curious about your impressions and how you will rate them in terms of sound quality.

 

I'm considering buying Peter's Pro210. However, I want to chose wisely so I need more options (so I'm also thinkg about Grzegorz's SE 1-way Pro).

 

Unfortunately yes - Lime Ears are out of my budget. I can spend around USD 400. But, from what I have read it seems that LE are rather warm IEMs; so maybe they would not be good for me.

 

What about CTM-200? Alclair Reference or Dual?

 

My new CIEMs don't have to be exact as Etys but I would like to them being as close as possible to Etys in terms of accuracy; more subbass is more than welcome.

I think you’re thinking of the Lime Ears LE3B. The LE3 is pretty neutral, maybe slightly warm but no more so than a HiFiMan RE-400, for example.

The CTM-200 doesn’t have any more deep bass than the Etys (in fact, I think it drops off a little more quickly) so it doesn’t really fit your requirements.

The Alclair Reference has the bass but lacks the level treble of the Etys. It sounds more like the GR07 at the top with some hotness/peaks. Other than that it’s quite good. Not sure what the Alclair dual sounds like. The quad-driver RSM is pretty consistent with the sound of the 3-driver reference, just better in terms of imaging, bass quality, and overall balance.

Will hopefully know how the Music One sounds in a few weeks!

Joker what would you recommend as a very bassy (but still good sq) ~20$ iem preferably through amazon? I've been thinking about the she3580 but i'm worried since i would also use these iems for running (mostly just walking from place to place though) and wear my iems cable down that the microphonics would be too much? I listen at 85-90db.

post #11271 of 14595

I'm excited to learn about a new Earsonics product.  Half a dozen times I've come close to pulling the trigger on a set.  Maybe this will be the one.

post #11272 of 14595

HI Joker! I would like to ask, is there any possibility of you reviewing the TDK BA200 in future? I know it is not in your planned review list but still just wanted know. I am very impressed with these iems and to me they sound better than anything I have heard thus far, including the likes of w4, um3x, sm3 v1/2, gr07,xba 40, fidelio s2 and even the heir audio 4a customs. I absolutely love it and it would be of great interest to know your opinion of them relative to all the high end iems that you have heard so far.

The SHE3580 isn't even that bassy. JVC FX101, maybe? JVC cable is quieter, too.

Yes, there's a good chance I'll get to try them soon.

I think that you should check out project86's review of the cosmic ears BA4 either here or on innerfidelity. Just be sure to look at the review of the R-revision and not the F.

well, he's pretty much reviewed the fidelio s1 and s2 on innerfidelity, so I guess he might add them here soon when he decides on the final scores.

My trusty SHE3570s finally died out and I need a recommendation for a new go to IEM.

 

Based on my price range, I've narrowed it down to the Sony MH1C, LG Quadbeat, Dunu Trident, JVC HA-FX40, and the Sony MDR-EX300. I do enjoy a good V-shaped sound signature, but I can't stand poor microphonics which is why I haven't immediately chosen the MH1Cs. If anyone has any personal insights and comparisons to the SHE35XX series, I'd love to hear them.

post #11278 of 14595

Hey joker, I bought the SHE3580 and was looking for an upgrade and was hoping you could help me out. I was looking for something with more bass than the SHE3580, better build quality and slightly better isolation. Any suggestions?

Yep, will add them when I get a chance. There seems to always be several in-progress reviews I want to finish ASAP. 
 
I do use the Fidelios as a benchmark these days and even included the S1 in the short buyer’s guide.

The MH1C and Trident aren’t notably v-shaped IMO. The Quadbeat has some cable noise, though it’s a little better than the MH1C. The EX300 and FX40 are much better in this regard.
 
How about the VSonic VSD1? It’s v-shaped, but not too v-shaded (reminds me of the VSonic GR07 Bass Edition) and the cable noise isn’t terrible, especially when worn cable-up.

Hmm… that sounds like the Yamaha EPH-100 to me. Great bass with good depth, very good isolation for a dynamic-driver earphone, and the build is pretty solid.

Also do they have decent stock tips because i don't have any extras? Then again they are only $15 so i could get some sony hybrids if needed
