Beats me than. You do tend to speak in definites before sometimes having a change in heart. Many here have described the HFs with triples vs the PFE with stock tips as very similar overall. I agree and like both. PFEs more comfort with touch more bottom and HFs even more balanced.

I tend to agree with your statement about the PFEs being similar to the HF5s in sound.

 

However...that was before I heard the PFEs with a decent source. Have you tried the HF5s on the HM601 yet pianist?

It must be there when it needs to be there, but it shouldn't be there when it's not supposed to be there. I also would like the IEM's to go loud. Not the whole time, but just now and then when I'm playing a really good track. 

Price range should be somewhere around $100

 

First I was thinking of the SE215's but an guy on a dutch forum said to me I should not take the SE215's if I want bass. While other reviews stated there was plenty of bass in the SE215's. I'm a bit confused. So what do you guys advice me?



The SE215 has ample bass by my standards but it always depends on where you're coming from. Compared to the TFTA 1V, for example, it would seem to have almost no bass at all. SE215 and HiSound Crystal are pretty safe choices in that price range for bass that has good quality and above-neutral quantity. There are bassier sets - the TFTAs, Beyer DTX 101s, or Velodyne vPulses for example - but typically in that price range you'll be risking the quality of the low end. Even the vPulses, which have mostly deep bass, can be somewhat intrusive.

Well I'm coming from the Q-Jays of which I think, they can not go loud enough and sometimes lack a bit of bass. I know it's going to be a step backwards with a budget of only $100 but for now that's just the way it is.

I currently have Monster Turbines right now and I have been looking around for an upgrade to them that keeps the same sound as the Turbines. I have already tried the Shure Se215s but they weren't to my liking. Any suggestions? Wanting to keep it sub $200. Thanks.

 

 

Turbine pro golds w/mic are $202 on amazon - they are a more relaxed & refined take on the Turbine sound. If you can describe the things you didn't like about the SE215, that might help with other options as well. 

 

 

The sound of the Shure SE215 wasn't the problem; I actually liked the Shure's sound. The problem was with the cable and it started to annoy me enough to become a deal breaker. So I decided to return them. I was looking at the Turbine Pro Golds but wasn't sure if there were any other IEM's out there with similar sound. Read through a lot of reviews but couldn't find any that referenced similar sound to the Turbines. The only problem I might have with the MTPG's are that they are a little flashy for me with the gold color, but that shouldn't be a deal breaker for me.

 

Again thanks for the advice!

Joker, which of all the TWFK-based IEM's is your personal favorite?

Just wondering tongue.gif

You can't tell?

 

$50 says its the CK10, followed by the DBA-02 mkII.

Yes, I have a feeling those two are the contenders, just wanted a direct answer from him I guess wink.gif

 

I myself just brought a UE700 for 86$, and am really impressed by the clarity, separation, and detail of these TWFK drivers, I'd say about the same with the GR07, do you agree with this Joker? Or do you rank the GR07 higher?

 

Oh, and btw, is a chin slider and a cable cinch the same thing?

Is there a comparison table in jpeg which I can download? I believe I downloaded one about half a year ago and I am now looking for a updated table. Thanks~!

The chin slider is, of course, the chin slider.  The cable cinch is where the main cables separate into the individual Left/Right cables.
