Multi-IEM Review - 324 IEMs compared (Brainwavz R3 ver.2 added 10/18/14 p. 988) - Page 5

I was supposed to get a chance to try the SA1 but it never worked out. The SA1 hasn't become very popular and the SA6 following seems to be dwindling, at least around here.

^
probably cuz the SA6 had a bunch of build quality issues for such a long time

i think the SA6's is that some of could never use them or even try to. all most of us would do is constantly be changing the bass ports and treble thingys and never listen to anything on them

You should update the prices on the meelec iems, they've jacked up all the prices.

It's not uncommon for manufacturers to charge MSRP for their products at their own outlets. It's still very easy to get the IEMs for the listed prices outside of the Meelec's site. Buy.com, Newegg, and Overstock all have good prices on Meelec products.

hah joker. got my PL30 in days including them being lazy and not sending it to the post office for like 3-4 days. good day for me audio wise since i picked up my AD700 in the afternoon and was able to try out some IE8's and W3 and then my PL30 came waiting for me when I got home.

now if only my shirt clips from hong kong or china would come..

edit: just opening it now and this is a surprise! the cable is a right angle instead of a straight one like i was expecting. I guess they updated the cable since you bought it. I hate straight plugs so pleasantly surprised/.

Yes, Soundmagic changed the PL30 cabling and packaging to the type found on the PL21 (PL50 cabling is a bit thicker I think). I should probably update the review with that info but then there will be a discrepancy with the photo . It should still come with a shirt clip though .

New month, new additions.

The Ortofon e-Q7 is a good start for a month of reviews
To balance things out also added the Coby CVEM79 Jammerz

"make sure that your amp is at least neural"

Sounds like brain burn-in taken a step too far!

Nice review, mate. But, judging from your comments about fit, I don't think I'll be hankering for them any time soon.

Maybe this is just the nerd in me, but I would love to see a graph of your collected wisdom, like a simple x/y spread with price vs. average score, should show off the real value performers!

If I had the table I'd do it myself, but to transcribe all that info from the image would be a pain!

Just a thought anyways.


Oh, also, before I forget, awesome thread!

Thanks for the e-Q7 review! Keep up the great work!

@bcpk: LOL!
post #74 of 14822
@bcpk: what's the iem all the way on the bottom?

nice review on the e-Q7 joker. not many reviews on those so the more the better

joker or anyone else who has the PL30, just out of curiosity does your cable retain memory of the way you stored them? I've only had them for a day but wondering if the kinks are just temporary from the way they were in the packaging or not.

The problem with this is that the labels really run into each other as one part of the spread is extremely dense (the $15-50 range). In the end it is impossible to see anything below the high-priced earphones. It's a limitation of the excel macro that I'm using to label points on a plot. If you want to give it a shot I'd be happy to lend you the original table.
