I have $1000 now and I want to buy a custom IEM for some Jpop like Asriel.

So could you please give me some recommendation?

Thanks a lot!

 

To be honest I've never listened to any Jpop in my life. Do you know what sort of sound signature you're looking for?

 

 

 

I like CK100's female vocal.And I guess maybe it is the most suitable for me.But I want a CIEM........

I admit I am a female vocal lover.So I just want something with the best female vocal play on it.

 

:confused_face:Forgive my poor English...Thanks!

I have the CK10, and I think vocals are great with it also.  I too enjoy female vocals.  Although it's higher than your budget, I did enjoy the TG334 with female vocal recordings.  I know this is the iems forums, but if you haven't heard the HE-6 with female vocals, you should, with a proper amp, it will wow you.

Thanks!

 

V6-S, no question.

I am wondering if the 10 dollar ones will suffice. I plan on using the in ears for doing homework at the library, casual walking and skateboarding.. 

 

Lol while writing that post I've made my mind, 8 dollar phillips will suffice. Cost/performance ratio is very enticing. 

 

The Philips are a great value and an excellent place to start. Certainly not a downgrade from the S4 in sound.

1. Flat cable with round housing
2. Flat cable with chipped housing
3. Round cable with round housing

Do all of them sound the same?
I like the round cable with round housing but the only available on my local shop is the flat cable with round housing. frown.gif

 

I can only comment on round housing + round cable D200. From what I understand it's a limited edition and tuned to be more balanced than the others. It's the one I have (D200R to be specific) and I like it quite a bit.

It actually seals perfectly!

 

Good to know! I'll focus on working the Pistons and/or Ostry into my queue for now and maybe get a chance to try these in the future.

Not for me.

Hmm... that's a tough one because I haven't tried any customs that I would consider a CK100 signature match. The JH13 is a safe bet if you can afford it - it shines all around, including vocals. After that, I would say Noble 4S and UM Miracle. The 4S tonally sounds something like a HiFiMan or Etymotic earphone - not the same as a CK100, but definitely not weak on vocals.

I have managed to have the experiences with both. I can surely give you my take on these 2 IEM's. But, just to let you know I am limited with my experiences compared to Joker. My results could be subjective, but here we go!

 

Out the box with their "original tips" intact and after their reasonable time on their burn-in period, monoprice had the advantage in SQ.

 

But, I do have an old thread suggesting that if you were to change the Philips "medium tips" to the vsonic "sky-blue" medium tips the SQ will definitely beat out the monoprice and many other IEM's.

 

To see more on this comparison please follow this link: http://www.head-fi.org/t/663657/philips-she3580-how-to-up-grade-your-philips-she3580-90-note-once-up-graded-theyre-hard-to-beat

 

I hope after reading my suggestion and actually trying the difference, it'll give you the perfect results you might be looking for in "SQ".

 

....unfortunately, the same can not be said for the monoprice. Changing the tips on the monoprice doesn't result in much of a difference. But, not to say -they are still an incredible buy!

 

So, the winner here in "SQ" could be the Philips she3580(90).....only if you're willing to change the tips, as suggested.

 

Let me know if this worked for you.......bye now!  :smile:

post #13551 of 14631

Joker, I want buy a JH13 Pro Freqphase, but I´m afraid of It sounds lean.  Does sounds it more thinner than Philips SHE3580? For me, the sonorous body of SHE3580 is appropriate.


Could you also compare the JH13 Pro FP with SM3?


I´m thinking of buy the JH Roxanne instead of JH13 Pro FP, but I don´t know if it's worth...


Thank you!

Hello joker. What iem would you recommend that has good soundstage? I like a warm+sweet sound but soundstage is the top priority and isolation. My budget is limited to 70dollars. And I'm leaning towards t-peos d202(not the round cable), sony xba-1, meelec m9, tdk eb950. Or if you have any suggestions, that would be great. But i hope your suggestion are easy to find in the Philippines. Thanks!

Thanks for your valuable inputs.
I don't have vsonic eartips, tried on eBay with no luck.
So I think I will buy both.

From my experience and my opinion, it is extremely hard to beat the "Xiaomi Pistons 2.1, or IF Edition (same sound signature)" in the area of "soundstage".

 

To me it beats the "Soundmagic PL30", which was considered one of the best for soundstage.

 

The "Xiaomi Pistons" privides (1) better spatial clarity, (2) better enhanced bass, (3) and life-like details.

 

Don't take my word for it, just try it! Only around $20 for the "2.1", and $25 for the "IF version".

 

Unless you are willing to wait. Joker will be reviewing these in the near future. But, I'm pretty sure he can suggest many others from his list.

 

.....just trying to help.  :happy_face1:

Really? The philips tx2 is 40 bucks and has quite a bit better soundstage than the pistons and not just size-wise.

 

Btw, joker, did you get the tx1 and tx2 already?

So, I'm assumming you have the Pistons? OK, than can you give us some more details between the both of them.

 

I'm very interested to know the difference. I never heard of these, so it might be interesting to know the details.

 

Thanks, in advance!  :wink_face:

Good review.

 

But, I'll pobably wait from others who'd reviewed them before making a decision to buy it. No offense, but I haven't seen reviews for these anywhere, but only from a small review you provided. Pistons has a very long thread, not counting many other threads and websites.

 

But, I'm sure if you give it to Jokers wish list, he will make it an effort to review it, soon.

It's not a review - just a quick short comparison. Anyway, no offence taken. I know that joker will be receiving them soon or received them already and that's why I'm asking him - not because I need someone to tell me whether what I hear is right but for the other members like you coz I know people will be waiting for someone like joker to greenlight them.
