XBA H1 are on sale for Rs.6990 (6500 on ebay). Many impressed people over on the dedicated thread.

Any thoughts on the Audio Technica CKS77 or CKS99 anyone?

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!

It's just so difficult to keep the upper treble even keeled in IEMs, though...

 

And also, very silly of me not to congratulate you on 300 --- it's a milestone! :beerchug:

Preference would be a universal with Audeze type tonal balance.  No massive spikes or droops along the way please ;)

 

I had considered the ER4P or 535 maybe split the difference with the 425.  Long story short my headphone experience has been more or less limited to full sized open cans so I'm for all intents and purposes... a noob :P

 

What do you want changed about the UM3X? 

 

 

The most LCD-2 like IEM I've heard is probably the Heir 8.A but failing that the SE535 should be a good choice.

Updating the options available:

 

------------------------------------------

Ultimate Ears UE200vm ($25)

JVC HA-FR201 ($25)

LG HSS F420 ($25)

------------------------------------------

SoundMAGIC MP21 ($35)

------------------------------------------

Sony MH1C ($45)

DUNU DN-22M ($45)

------------------------------------------

Astrotec AM-90 ($50)

------------------------------------------

 

Of those the MH1C and LG F420 sound the best IMO. The MH1C is typically the "safer" choice because it's smoother and has more bass but for rock I prefer the Quadbeat (F420). The LG should be good as long as you don't need heavy bass.

Mostly the massive scoop out from 2-8KHz.  I find it overly warm and lacking in definition and air.  Kind of like an early LCD-2 Rev1 on an already warm rig.

 

Measurements wise the interesting ones all seem to be duals DBA-02, W2, UE700 etc.  Don't know however if measurements and actual presentation match.  Also odd that the universal $300+ market is full of wildly inaccurate iems :(

The Shure SE846 is very very similar to the LCD2/LCD3 imo. It sits right in between in terms of sound sig, and also sound quality imo.

Thanks!

 

So I think I'm going with LG F420 or F530 because it's cheaper and I listen to rock.

My problem or hesitance on the Shure front is the cliff that is 10KHz+ on all Shure IEMs.

The *200 and *400 Complys I have are loose. Shure Olives and Westone True-Fit Foams don't fit. Not sure about the rest.

 


It'll be done before black Friday. I'd give it a month at most. 

 

With some stretching =P I was able to fit the T-100 on my SteelSeries Flux In-ear
 



Oh and Happy 300! :D

Well, the DBA-02 and UE700 are definitely brighter than the LCD2. Measurements are tricky when it comes to treble. For example with the compensation InnerFidelity uses, earphones that are more or less flat in the treble, such as the Audio-Technica CKM500, tend to sound overly edgy and unrefined while those with a sculpted response (e.g. HiFiMan RE272) can sound pretty good.

I've tried stretching the Comply cores before but they were tough so bravely I gave up. Glad you managed!
