Considering the Fidelio S2 is going for 94$ would you prefer the Onkyos at the same price range? The fidelios are less "fun" I presume?

Thanks. How much darker is the treble of the SD-2 compared to the CK100?  I've kind of got accustomed to that sort of treble energy.

hi joker

recently i listened to Brainwavz B2, wow, the detail is very good, but the clarity that make me like it very very much.

but i don't buy it because the bass quantity is nowhere to find and very unsufficient for me.

compare to vc1000, do you thing vc1000 will have the detail and especially the clarity of B2?

and more important, do it has more bass quantity and impact than B2?

No; yes. The Onkyos have a few things going for them but they are not at the level of the Philips or the RE-400 or the GR07 when it comes to fidelity. They're more competition for the RBH EP1 I reviewed the other day - fun and consumer-friendly, but with room to grow on the fidelity side. Best thing about them is probably the presentation, which is spacious, open, and airy. They can easily give the GR07 or Fidelio S2 a run for the money there.

Don't know how to quantify it really other than to say it's noticeably darker.

All of these earphones you're looking at have similar bass quantity. The GR01 is the best of the bunch but there's a very good chance it still won't have enough bass for you - it only has a few dB on the B2. If you found the B2 to have no bass you might be better off with a hybrid design like the T-Peos H-100 or Dunu DN-1000.

You can add Ortofon e-Q5 in your list. It has more bass than B2 but treble is clearer and has more presence on B2. It will be a though decision for you.

Hi.

 I'm looking to get a new pair of dynamic driver IEMs. I'm looking to spend ~$50-100 and am hoping to find something that has the roughly same sound as my Phonak PFE 111's (grey filter. Although I'd be happier if Phonak made a dark grey one). Right now I'm looking towards the Audio-Technica IM50 or the Vsonic VSD3 when they get released. I'll be primarily listening on my Fiio X3 so I need something that'll play well with it's warm sig. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers.

The Phonaks are BA-based and are still very competitive, especially if you're only looking at dynamic earphones with a similar sound signature. Can't comment on the IM50 or VSD3, though.

do you think h-100 will have same clarity of B2?

between vc1000 and b2, which one do you think have better clarity and detail ? or is it on the same level?

i will pair vc1000 with fiio e11 to boost the bass if it has same clarity as b2, coz vc1000 is much cheaper in indonesia.

thanks for reply

but i'm afraid e-Q5 would be out of budget for me :)

It's pretty close.

They both use the Knowles TWFK driver. I don't think either has an advantage in clarity or detail over the other. If VC1000 is cheaper than B2 then by all means go for the VSonics.

Ok, thanks for the help joker much appreciated.

Joker

 

I think its amazing to have a person like you. What you are contributing with to the whole IEM scene is probably bigger than we all can imagine.

 

I don't want to imagine what is happening at the R&D departments at headphone makers, stressing them making better and cheaper headphones.

Also proving that if you are a small headphone maker and make good headphones, you will sell.

thanks for the reply joker

When are you going to test the Sony XBA-H1 and H3?

 

Again i am very glad for you contribution for us all consumers!

 

Cheers!
