@Joker

 

Thanks in advance for your reviews on the Ivery IS-1 in the later future.

 

Credits to you are mentioned at the end of my new thread for the Liberty 1's.

Same here, still use the A161 to benchmark other IEMs all the time.

I'm currently looking for more Bass and Sub Bass, better vocals, and not as harsh Treble. Better Soundstage presence. Better quality overall.


My music consists of Rock, Rap, Electronic (Dubstep, Chillstep, Techno, Trance, Trap).


My Klipsch S4's are muddy with bass, and sound cracky at high volumes and are very harsh on the Treble to my ears.


My JBLs sound pretty good too. They have more detailed bass, better mids (vocals), Treble is about the same. Soundstage is better.


I'm trying to find something that will make the Bass and Sub Bass pop a little more for instance in Rock music like listening to Alice in Chains, Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged7Fold, Kiss, etc... I hear the bass guitar fine its just the kick drums lack with the Sub Bass feel and presence.


I was looking into the Sony MDR XBA-H1, MDR XB60/90EX, Klipsch X11, Vsonic GR07 BE.


I don't care for Hippo VB, JVC FXT90, Atrio MG7.


If you have any suggestions for others or if those I picked, can you enlighten me a little more and better direct my choice on a pair. Thanks In Advance.
 

 

I haven't tried the JBLs but two other sub-bass heavy IEMs you should consider are the Yamaha EPH-100 and RHA MA750. I wouldn't bother with the GR07BE - despite the name it's not a very bassy earphone.

Yeah, generally high impedance headphones require more voltage but low impedance headphones require higher current and most of the time smartphones can provide the voltage but not the current needed. Also, just judging the efficiency based on the specifications of the headphones posted by the manufacturer is not exactly an accurate science, especially given that it's not like all headphones have linear impedance.

In my experience, there has been stuff with circa 16 ohm impedance and high sensitivity that has been pretty hard to drive and stuff with high impedance that is very easy to drive etc. I'm often surprised by new stuff, its specs and the actual efficiency, so it's a bit of a generalization to conclude on the power needed only based on specs and urban legends about 30+ ohm stuff and how hard it is to drive with a smartphone.

 

In regard to the a161p talk - it was actually something like 30 ohm as far as I remember and is actually one of the easiest to drive iems. It can get very loud very fast from pretty much any source but most iems aren't this sensitive and so efficient.

 

This was my experience with the A161P as well. Gets very loud, very quickly. 

 

Impedance is 35ohms at 1k per InnerFidelity measurements, but definitely not linear.

......hopefully, I'm setting a thread for the Ivery IS-1 with my impressions of them within the hour. Joker will give details and ratings on them in the near future.

easy! Not a problem.

And good that you finally made a good decision to open a new thread that you want to post your impression than hijacking a thread. Dont take it personal.wink.gif

Non-taken'.

 

Just commenting on some new gems for Joker.

 

.....didn't know you were guarding his thread from hijackers. You caught me!!!  :eek:

Wow, are you also writing because your sensitive?

 

I already apologized on this thread. What else do you want? A cookie?

 

-Go on with your business about IEM's. There's nothing else to say.

 

I'm not trashing no one here and I already started my thread.

 

Again, my apologies, -especially to Joker.

Joker,

 

Thanks for your review on the MOE-SS01.

I really like the overall clearness and the sound colour of the treble, what I don't like is the V shape.

Now, you compared them to the Philips S1. 

I would love a bit more subbass and a more neutral tone (less treble), but would this go at the cost of the clearness?

Thanks in advance.

Boosting treble does result in the impression of greater clarity*, but in the case of SS01 vs Philips S1, the difference is negligible and once you spend time ear time with the S1 it won't sound less clear than the SS01 anymore. Also, while the S1 has greater subbass weight, keep in mind that it's not a very bassy earphone overall. It's only about on-par with the VSonic GR07 in overall bass quantity. 

 

*That's not to say that a brighter earphone is always clearer than a darker-sounding one, but this is how, for example, the "Crystal Clear" BBE+ EQ setting works.

Thanks for your input Joker. It might work out actually since I like a more forward signature.

Hey Joker, one more quick question:

What's the best way to burn in some IEMs?

The best way is not to. Check the Sound Science forum. There are lots of folks with different opinions, of course, but from what I understand there is no evidence IEMs benefit from burn in.

The best way to burn them in is to enjoy them :gs1000smile:
