I like Shure Olive tips, they take away just a bit of the bright edge without effecting the overall sound as much as Complys - plus they're more durable and more comfortable. Don't know what you mean about the bass, it's very tight already.

Sorry I misunderstood the bass in DBA02-MKII. It is tight.

Does the Shure Olive tip fit well on the nozzle of DBA02-MKII ?
Does it make the bass more punchy and deeper?

I don't think foam tips make the bass deeper and more punchy. From my experience single flange silicone tips (this is a VERY diverse category) tend to give the punchiest and deepest bass. But I haven't used any olives, just comply and vsonic foams. I did however love comply tips on my R-50 because they do add some kind of texture to the bass. Like the soft reverberations of a finger plucked bass guitar. You can almost see the string vibrate.

After changing to Shure's olive tip, I found it cuts down a bit of brightness of the original sound of DBA02-MKII.

I feel DBA02-MKII is no so good for song that emphasize heavy bass like dance/rock music. :(

Don't have one at this time. Maybe (hopefully) next year, especially if ATH decides to release these in the US...

Hi joker, thanx to you i bought mh1c 6 months back. they are awesome but have terrible fitting and cord. they just keep falling when on the move. so im thinking of buying another sets better sounding than these. I listen to almost all types of genres, more of hip hop, edm , classic rock. IMHO amount of bass on the mh1c should be the minimum for the iem, i cant comment on the quality.

Please suggest me good iem. my budget max 150 usd. My choices till now- Westone 3 , vsonic gr07be, vsonic vc1000, vsonic vsd1s, jvc fxt90, yamaha eph100.. Any help is appreciated by anyone. :)

If you want to retain most of the bass quantity, but improve on the quality my vote goes to the EPH-100.  I believe the rest will be considerably less bass-tilted comparatively, but the GR07 BE should also be a consideration.

Is Yamaha EPH-100SL still able to have the similar detail, seperation & sound stage like in DBA02-MKII?

Modulor is right. You can definitely eliminate the VC1000, GR07BE, and VSD1S - they have less bass than the MH1C. The FXT90 and W3 may have similar midbass quantity but less deep bass than the MH1C. Only the EPH-100 can really compete with the Sony and is a good upgrade IMO.

The enhanced bass and warm overall tone will mask some of the detail compared to something as flat as the DBA-02.

Hmm... someone really needs to recable MH1... Maybe it's time to buy a multimeter and lots of cable...

Among RE-400, EPH-100SLand Dunu DN1000,

which one has the closest detail, sound stage and separation like in DBA02-MKII but has a punchy, fast, extended and deep bass?
post #12374 of 14599

Anyone has tips on what would be nice for me?

 

Neutral and detailed

well extended in both frequency ends, 

Cold,

BIG soundstage, i sooo love huge soundstages =)

non sibilant,

not very bassy, but rather neutral, and not like ER4s, thats way to little.

 

:)

Interesting combinations of characteristics. I find that some of them might be conflicting... Intriguing to see the answer. I think you're bound to end up with a CIEM with those requirements.
