Is that the triple dynamic? Haven't tried that one - I do have their hybrid (3X? not sure what it's called) but it's a little too v-shaped for me.

Great how much effort youve put in this many reviews.

As you have tested the famous (?) Monoprice budget IEMs, I thought you might wanted to try these other -bit less famous, but very good- budget IEMs which are more v-shaped.

Majin already compared the Awei ES-800m against the Monoprice (http://www.head-fi.org/t/630536/small-comparison-of-awei-es800m-best-bang-for-buck), maybe you would want to do that too. I found the earphones the cheapest at tinydeal for $5,50 (free shipping). See this link: http://www.tinydeal.com/awei-35mm-audio-jack-stereo-earphones-for-pc-p-57773.html

 

I own them both and I really think they are both great value.

 

Appreciate the suggestions but pretty filled up on new IEMs at the moment.

yes it is , the triple dynamic with the tunable bass vents thats really hard to take off
If I am looking for a universal in the 600-800 bracket , with strong powerful bass , forward mids and non sparkly but extending highs , which IEM do you reccomend me? I am basically looking for a straight upgrade to the likes of IE 8 and the UMPro30

Strong bass plus forward mids is pretty tough to pull off - usually cranking up the bass you either get some midrange recession (like the the unique melody hybrid) or some bloat in the lower midrange. Of the enhanced-bass non-"hyper high end" universals the Sony XBA-H3 might be the best I've tried in that regard, though it still has minimal bass bloat. Very good treble quality, though, and not a lot of midrange recession.

 

The EarSonics SM64 is another - it is BA-based but the bass is deeper and more powerful than you may expect. There's more coloration to the sound, though.

 

Of the really high end ones ($500+) the Sennheiser IE 800 has a ton of bass but the treble presentation can vary a good bit with fit (not a lot of eartip options, either) and I wouldn't call it non-sparkly. Great end-to-end extension, but I wouldn't suggest it unless you can try it beforehand.

the IE800 treble is a bit too hoot for me , I wouldnt mind encroaching the 800 bucks territory. I listened to a friends SEM6, and i feel its not that ''exciting" for its price , while the z5 sounds too v shaped for me
