You might be asked for thousands of times: would you like to write a review about IE800?

Because the sound of IE800 seems very controversial among my friends.

 

It was posted a few pages ago that the IE800 unit I received via InnerFidelity may not be representative of what others are hearing out of theirs (based on its measurements) so we're exploring getting it replaced or getting another one to confirm.

@joker

 

1. Out of EPH-100, Earsonics SM3 and Westone UM3X, Which one has more bass? I guess it's EPH-100? if yes so which one has more bass out of SM3 and UM3X?

 

2. Out of EPH-100, Earsonics SM3 and Westone UM3X, Which one has better bass quality?

 

3. Out of EPH-100, Earsonics SM3 and Westone UM3X, Which one has better instrument separation? I guess it's UM3X?

 

4. Out of EPH-100, Earsonics SM3 and Westone UM3X, I guess SM3 has the best soundstage of the three?

 

5. Out of EPH-100, Earsonics SM3 and Westone UM3X, Which one has the best quality treble?

 

 

TIA

Hey joker, I think I got my eyes on the HA-FXT90. I can get those for 65$ (and possibly cheaper if there's a nice offer availabe in the future).

Do you think they are a worth while upgrade of SHE3580 (lol I started to think this is a stupid question)? Beside I listen to male vocal and Rock on a daily basic, will these IEMs unleash their full potential with this genre of music?

Any more suggestion within this price range? Preferable Japanese brands because I have a friend who study over there and he can buy and send stuff back to me easily

The EPH-100 has more bass, followed by the SM3 and then UM3X (not far apart IMO). They all have good bass quality. I preferred the SM3 to the EPH-100 but not by much. The UM3X has the best separation. The SM3 has the most enveloping soundstage, which is not to say it's the one you'll necessarily like best. I think the treble is too laid-back on both the SM3 and UM3X but I would still still take those over the EPH-100 for their smoothness. Can't be more specific than that since I don't have access to a UM3X for A:B comparisons.  

 

 

Keep in mind I only have heard the SM3 v1.

No plans to add it at this time.

I think that's a good price for the FXT90. I did enjoy them for rock and vocals on it are nice and non-recessed. Unless you can get the FX700 for the same price I would go for it tongue.gif

I checked the fx700... yeah no, over 200 bucks (19000 yen, while the fxt90 only cost 6000 yen ~ $64)

I don't think he's ever going to do the review for the UE700 or the TF10 because both are discontinued and there's plenty of reviews for the TF10 already.

First of all, huge thanks on the encyclopedia of knowledge here. Top notch.

 

I am a proud owner of the UM3X, and I use them everyday.  I would like to get into the low end customs, 350-450$ range.  Any comparisons or advice in relation to the UM3X would be much appreciated.  I'm not quite sure which direction I would like to go yet, but hearing some comparisons would help me make that decision.  Sorry if this has been discussed, but this is a massive thread to search through.

post #9686 of 14595

I have got so much out and have spent so much fun time reading this thread~!!! Really appreciated!!!:)

post #9687 of 14595

I have ordered a pair of Vsonic VC02 for my sister just a few minutes after reading ljoker review.

 

My sister does not like bass or heavy music at all, she likes fairly light music, take the country music for example.

I hope the VC02 fits the bill well.

 

Thank you ljoker. I always follow your guide when it comes to buying the IEMs including ( the Phonak 012 for myself , the Vsonic G07 for my wife ) both of them has always given us much satisfied in terms of sound quality.

 

Much appreciated!!!

For the UE700 it's also that I think there are better-yet-similar-sounding TWFK-based sets in that price range, including the Brianwavz B2 and Rock-It R-50.

It's been a while since I've heard the UM3X. Are you looking for any particular sound improvements/changes in relation to the UM3X? None of the entry-level customs I've tried (though there's only 4 I've heard in that price range) reminded me of the UM3X.
