Multi-IEM Review - 321 IEMs compared (NarMoo S1 added 09/04/14 p. 966) - Page 461

post #6901 of 14624

Not a biggy.. but how come Joker gave 5/5 to the k3003 for accessories? 3 pair of tips, 2 adaptors, 3 filters and a leather pouch is not something i would say plethora of accessories.. is it because the have the criteria to be considered full pack of accessories?

Again no biggy, just chatting around.

Seems like plenty of accessories, and I'm assuming they are all of solid quality. The filter system is pretty advanced as far as accessories go.

But a leather pouch?! I wish every iem sold came with an ultimate ears case like the triple.fi 10 came with.

 

Edit: well after actually looking at it, I guess that is not that bad. Still kind of weird. And that thing about the airline adapter fitting...I know I've used my airline adapter...never.

i wrapped a rubber band around it so that it would remain pressed down,

and i just wanted to try and ask if anyone know of a better solution?

and would it be likely that the button will break since it is being pressed down

all the time?

such a shame that this wonderful set of phones has this compatibility issue.

they sound really good, just as i hoped.

as good as my Klipsch Image S4 without the harshness.

thanks
 

 

AFAIK the Galaxy S does not support the standard iPhone headset configuration. Pretty sure you need one of these: http://www.meelec.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ADPTR-TRRS-35

I believe the word I'm looking for is flexible... you can shape it however you like, it just doesn't fight... It's even more flexible than the CK10 cable

I never found a cable I like as much as this...

 

Other high-end JVCs all have similar cables.

The Spark will cost me an extra $18 to get it to ship to Canada. The E10 looks like it has good value but I'm willing to spend a bit more for going up a tier. Is there a big difference between the E10 and sparks or VR60?

 

The GR06 is more balanced than bass-heavy. Doesn't seem like that's what you wanted but it is a good headphone.

Quality and quantity. Everything is very well-made and I do quite like how the filters work (Phonak filters are a pain in the *** in comparison). I also appreciate that they've thought of non-apple users by including a TRS adapter (though a non-i option would have been just as good). The case is quite protective as well though I would never use it because I hate cable winders.

Which iems would recommend for amazing vocals? Not really looking to buy, just wondering which ones stood out the most. 

post #6906 of 14624

Hey which one of these IEM's should I buy? Klipsch x10 or Monster turbine pro gold. I'm looking for pounding bass and clear detailed treble.

 

I can find them both on a similar low price range of around 200 bucks on amazon so which one should I get?

post #6907 of 14624

US always has lower prices, duh.

Wait till November and get a TF10 during Black Friday for $99.  Or find a used/comparable one.  Assuming you have a DAP or amp w/ low output impedance.

I already know about the tf10. But I need headphones now so I am currently deciding between MTPG and X10

Really depends on what type of vocal presentation you like. There's no right or wrong answer - some like vocals to be extremely clear and breathy (e.g. FAD FI-BA-SS) and others prefer a warmer, thicker, more lush and seductive presentation (e.g. Earsonics SM2). I like the FitEar MH334 myself etysmile.gif.

Honestly, neither, but if you must have one of these two go for the Golds. The X10 has strong, punchy bass but it's BA-based so really not what I would think qualifies as 'pounding'. The Golds on the other hand have thicker bass notes and move more air (though they really aren't all that bassy) but they don't have the best treble quality. Personally I would instead go for a JVC FX500.

This is not entirely true... about 90% of China's and other neighboring country's product is cheaper in China.. such as Japan... brand new FXT90 is under 100$ here, as well as the EPH-100...

Similarly, almost all U.S brands will be cheaper in the U.S than in China

Amen to that. Was about to say pretty much the same thing, but might add that the FX500 have noticably less isolation than the others.

 

@Joker, once again a very nice review (K3003i), thanks. Fingers crossed for your 5/5 build quality rating, as I don't really trust their upper cables, which are allowed to move freely inside the sheath.

Apart from the JVCs, the Philips SHE9900 have a similarly flexible cable, one of the best I've ever seen. Actually pretty amazing for the price range.

Agreed on the cables above the split, really the only potential weakness. This type of sheath has worked well for me in the past, though, so fingers crossed. Only time will tell with certainty - I've had them since February and all good so far.

Joker, any first impressions on the Astrotec AM-90? How does it stack against the MEElec A151? ClieOS says it really is similar in performance and signature...
