Multi-IEM Review - 321 IEMs compared (NarMoo S1 added 09/04/14 p. 966) - Page 886

post #13276 of 14595

Any insight as to how the Sony MH1C and the Nuforce NE-700X compare to the Vsonic GR99?  I have the Vsonic, and the descriptions of the Sony and Nuforce sound similar to the Vsonic.  Would either be an upgrade over the Vsonic?  In particular, I'd be looking for something with a similar overall sound signature to the Vsonic but a bit better performance in the midrange (a bit more clear and a bit less veiled in the mids).

 

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Does changing the type of metal a BA driver is made from affect the sound? (i.e aluminium vs titanium)

Hey guys, anyone using the Noble Audio K-10? If so how do you like them? Gonna be using it with the AK-240. It's between the Roxanne and the K-10. Just trying to get some honest opinions. Thanks...

I know that a lot of people will say something like "eph is way better" but nuforce have a lot of good reviews in my country and nobody have booth so i really want to know Your opinion. I have soundmagic e10 now and looking upgrade. I usually listen Rock music, tons of RHCP and I would be grateful if You compare eph100 and ne700x separately in bass/mids/highs and soundstage

Cheers smily_headphones1.gif

 

I do think the EPH-100 is better, though there's also a big price gap there. The bass on the NE-700X is loose compared to the EPH-100. That's going to the biggest difference - it sounds sluggish and excessive in comparison even though the EPH-100 doesn't really lag behind in depth and impact. The EPH-100 also has a stronger midrange and smoother upper mids, with a more well-layered presentation.

The NE-700X has quite a bit more bass than the GR99. The MH1C is closer, but still bassier. It's also smoother than the GR99. However, if you're looking for more midrange presence and good, but not heavy, bass, you might want to consider the Fidue A63 instead in that price range.

Most likely yes but you'd have to ask a BA engineer to get a definitive answer.

Hi Joker, care to share which CSR Bluetooth dongle with aptX support on Windows 7 x64 you're using? A friend of mine is having problems with the SBH80 and his laptop's inbuilt BT, so he wants to buy a dongle that's confirmed to work. Thanks! :smile_phones:

Mine's an Azio BTD-V400. It also uses the CSR Harmony software (which I prefer) in place of the standard Windows Bluetooth interface.

I believe it is made of similar materials as dynamic drivers, since most of its workings are still based on a dynamic driver

Except that they have a metal shell outside, which gives the BA a mostly "fixed" sound so the drivers can be combined to the desire of the manufacturer

Anyone care to recommend another IEM in the < $40 range that has just a small bit of of a V curve but not over the top?

 

Basically something like the M9's with more mids.  Way less bass than the Vsonic GR02's.

 

I just received the SoundMAGIC E10's, but they aren't quite what I'm looking for.  If anyone's interested they are for sale here:

If you can increase your budget to $50, the SteelSeries Flux in-ear and the VSonic VSD1S comes to mind. I have these two and they are great with nice bass and smooth treble. Mids/vocals are clear. I also have the VSD1 and the VSD1LimitedEdition and the VSD1S is the best out of the three.

 

Others may recommend the Sony MH1C, but  have no experience with them.

What esteebin said - VSD1S is less bassy and more balanced than the GR02 with better overall sound quality. The Flux is more balanced still, but has a mild v-shape to it nonetheless. The MH1C doesn't qualify to be called v-shaped IMO - not enough rise at the top.

 

Curious as to why you didn't like the E10? They're pretty mildly v-shaped.

Yeah I haven't been this curious to try a new universal in a while. Might be the vague but alluring descriptions of the sound...

Hi all, i just received my VSonic VSD1S yesterday,

have used them only once, but would like to share that already these are my

favorite iems at the moment!

i have the id America Spark, the Klipsch S4, Meelec CW31, Meelec A161P, LG Quadbeats 2 and Sony MH1C.

of all these, i like the VSD1S most! and used it just once!

the fit is so good, with the adjustable nozzle, its a lot more secure than a straight-barrel design, yet doesn't feel like a half-in-ear like the CW31 and is also more comfortable.

the cable is great - yes, the MH1C is a lot less prone to tangling, and most of us know how terrible it is.

what i like about the cable is how low-profile it is, it doesn't bounce around, its strong yet soft, and it

doesn't deliver so much noise as my other iems.

i read a lot about the treble being sibilant, but i was pleasently surprised.

i was affraid i was gonn'a get a Klipsch-S4-sibilance, but it's miles away from that, not the case at all.

very happy with my purchase, thanks joker for your review -- it's thanks to you that i bought them!

Not at this time. I could possibly get my hands on them, just got a pretty full schedule.
