Multi-IEM Review - 321 IEMs compared (NarMoo S1 added 09/04/14 p. 966) - Page 961

post #14401 of 14612

Hi joker. Could you please help me to choose a good pair of iem? I listen most of the times to techno, Goa and electronic world music. So electronic mainly.

 

https://soundcloud.com/alter-ego-amsterdam/satori-in-between-worlds-alter for example.

 

I already have some nice iems like mh1 and Fischer Audio Consonance. I don't listen to mh1 much though because of the horrible fit. It plops out of my ear all the time (well the fit is actually ok, but that cable makes it horrible to wear when I am moving).

 

How is the MA750 for electronic music? or maybe the custom Arts music One? Music one is pretty expensive in comparison to the ma750 and i dont know if it's worth the price difference. If you have another idea that would be very welcome. Price range around 130 dollars. By the way...I like a bit more Bassy iems probably with a good kick.

 

And could you maybe review some more Xears maybe? the XPA2Pro and the XWH700Pro seem like a steal with the KLANGFUZZIS promo. (from 150 euro's to 35 euro's).

Thank you very much J. :-)
Rha ma750 is on the same level as those 2?

Cant wait for your review of the vsd3 and vsd3s... They seem great for 30 euros...

I wouldn't recommend the Music One if you like bassy earphones. If you can find it in your price range, the Yamaha EPH-100 would be my pick for Electronic music. Otherwise the MA750 is quite good. If you want to spend under $100, I'd recommend the Audio-Technica CKM500, Shure SE215 (for a smoother, more MH1-like sound), and even the Brainwavz S1. 

 

Unfortunately I haven't tried the latest crop of Xears in-ears.

I prefer the GR07BE and EPH-100 to the MA750 but they're not far apart.

joker , can you compare me the dn-1000 with xba h3 ? all i want to know is which one has better clarity and details ?

post #14406 of 14612

Thnx Joker...Just ordered the EPH-100 for 99 dollars on Amazon. Seems like a good price ^^.

 

I am very interested in the Xears too...Someone was claiming that the XWH700Pro was actually better then the Ortofon q5...so I will probably order those too...If u like I can lend them to you if you want to review them...maybe some others would be interested to read that too ^^

The KLANGFUZZIS promo has been around for years.

Although the service from the owner is top-notch, I would not get the Xears XPA2pro or XWH700PRO ever again. 

I had both; excellent bass, superb 3D imaging, but the highs were oh so sibilant. I couldn't listen to them.

see: http://www.head-fi.org/t/545450/xears-appreciation-thread-formerly-td-iii/945#post_9880328

 

It's really sad, because I was in love with the Xears Xe200pro for 2 years. Great sound quality for the price, the soundstage and positioning of the Xears is their biggest strength though.

I find the TTPOD T1E an upgrade to the Xe200pro since they've got the same L-shaped (high on bass, flat on other frequencies) sound signature, only the TTPOD is a lot clearer.

 

No head-fier has tried their "Neu" versions, or their "4core hybrid", order those if you want to buy Xears and prove the community a great service by sharing your impressions ;)

I had read that thread already actually. I thought that was the thread someone said they were better then the q5 ^^. Hmmm your review told me you actually liked them for electronic music. Did it change after a while?

Yes, when lowering the 4k frequency band, they were "acceptable". I liked them for tech house due to their bass and presentation, but the cymbals kept annoying me too much. Wouldn't recommend them.

 

I wouldn't dare to go against Jokers advice since he has far, far more skill & experience than me, but personally I would pick the TTPOD T1E instead of the Audio-Technica CKM500 for electronic music. I found the CKM500 rather bright and the bass didn't dig deep enough for me (disclaimer: stocktips, short listen). I haven't heard the other IEMS he advices. Again, just my humble opinion.

DN-1000 is brighter, clearer, more crisp, and more v-shaped overall. XBA-H3 is warmer, smoother, and thicker-sounding, It's more forgiving but still has very decent treble energy, just not as much as the Dunu, and sounds a hair more muffled overall.

I haven't heard the TTPOD. The CKM500 does roll off a little at the bottom end compared to something like the EPH-100 or RHA MA750.

I am a bit worried about the eph-100s I just ordered. On Amazon i'm reading lots of people have problems with the quality. It seems that the left ear stops working correctly after a while. Not one person, but several write the same thing. Some even have sent it back 4 times :S. Does this sound familiar here?

post #14412 of 14612

I noticed that the Xiaomi Pistons where added into the list. You mentioned that we can get it from bigbargainonline at ebay? (via the link you gave): http://www.ebay.com/itm/380861393335

 

He's a real legit seller? You got your Piston from this seller?

 

Hope for a prompt reply so that I can make my order :D

Yeah, legit seller - also http://penonaudio.com/Xiaomi-Piston-2.0-Earphones , which is the site of this exact ebay seller

Thanks but I'm just curious, how do you know they're the same seller?

 

If so, do you think I should get it from his ebay store or the website? Sorry for the trivial question, quite new in this :(

It's the same seller - it's a well-known fact. As far as where to buy it from, it's your choice. I've ordered from both places - the penonaudio prices have the shipping included, so you'll save like 99 cents if you order it straight from the site.
