Multi-IEM Review - 323 IEMs compared (T-Peos Rich200 added 10/02/14 p. 980) - Page 598

I'd say MEElectronics AI-M2. Very nice looking and sturdy too.

So the R-50 bass is really that little?If it is Iguess I'll be going for the GR07 MkII i guess. R-50 sounds like it has too little bass.

+1, definitely the cheapest way to go for a decent cord. M2P model also has an inline mic. If you're willing to spend more you can also get a westone-style twisted cable with the Rock-It R-11.

I haven't finished my review but there's a whole thread dedicated to the SHE3580 out on the forum.

If you're just after a cable, vmoda and a few others sell just cables. Meelec might even do it. I know cosmic ears does.
post #8961 of 14702

They're typically more than $10 the Ai-M2 costs.

Excellent point.

$20 for V-moda cables... MEElec sells some cables and adapters but nothing nice enough that would be desirable for a hardwired recable IMO, they just sell useful/utilitarian stuff like TRSS to mic + stereo adapters and that kinda stuff. Although the extension they sell for their sport IEM might be worth a look (I forget the IEM's name, S6 I think?).

Is the M2's cable the same one as the M9's? That one's fantastic, it makes cables on much more expensive IEM look shoddy.

I think scootsit meant that you can just email meelec and ask if they have any spare cables from their earphones. I've done that in the past, when I needed a new cable for my apple duals.

 

And yes, the M2 cable is the same as the M9 except the color. I don't really like the striped color scheme of the M2 cord but it is what it is. You can also get the M16 somewhere around that price, which has other cable colors.

It looks like I may be back in the higher options for earphones non custom. I'll probably get another mid tier custom down the line but can't see having time to go to an audiologist anytime soon and it does depend on if I see any Christmas sales :)

 

I think I'll be picking up a FX700 to use at work. I'll be using it with the SGS3 and my Nuforce HDP. Hopefully they still are good among similarly priced earphones but not too many don't have good isolation as I do need to hear if someone is trying to call me. Thanks for your review on them as it did help in buying them as always :)

I'm looking for earphones to listen to hard rock/metal. A few examples of bands i listen to: Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Judas Priest... I have a budget of 20-80 euro. Buying from amazon.de or ebay unless someone knows a better site for Europe. I want good sound stage. Pretty much everything is important for metal because of how complex the songs are. My setup is FLAC>Sansa Clip+, i'll add a Fiio E7 soon.

 

Currently considering:

-Vsonic GR06

-Astrotec AM-90

-Visang R03

-Sunrise Xcape Impressive Edition

 

Other recommendations are welcome.

I think the FX700 is still the best thing out there with low isolation. The EX600 or MDR-7550 might be nice lower-priced options if you don't need that much bass.

It depends on what kind of sound signature you prefer. The Xcape IE is very good if you like a warmer sound. The GR06 is good for something mid-forward, yet pretty spacious with good bass. Personally I'd go for something relatively balanced, with good resolution and maybe a bit of added bass kick. The AM90 is nice but you can easily get a Rock-It R-30 or maybe even a Dunu I 3C-S in that price range, which are better and definitely more spacious. You could also get a Shure SE215 or even the long-forgotten ECCI PR401 which always sounded good with rock & metal to me.

LOVE the ECCI PR401! Too bad their distribution kind of vanished.

post #8970 of 14702

joker, does K3003's treble sound more "brassy" (not thin) than FX700?

similar to MTPC or MTPG?

I liked the brassy treble the MTPC and MTPG when I had them.

Thanks
