Kind of a difficult question to answer - diminishing returns, personal decision, etc., etc.. If we were all trying to avoid paying double for anything much less than double the performance, we would all stop with our Monoprice 8320s and Philips SHE3580s.

 

back to that. i 99% agree. got the SHE last day and it can be the first and last iem to get (for non-head-fi'erstongue_smile.gif)

now i'm waiting for this and the fx40 review!

hi ljokerl ! I think that Creative Aurvana 3's impedance is 28 Ω

or maybe I'm missing some thing.

Thanks for the EPH-100 review Joker...I've been waiting from your side on how it fares on your Universal IEM List. I might be having them this month as I am very curious on their sound, like somebody here commented, on another thread that it's a FX700 with much better isolation. From your description, I might get to try them..I'm collecting a bang-for-buck iems right now, like the PFE-122 - very non-fatiguing sound that can catch-up with my top-end UIEMs. And they are very comfortable. Not really good for pop and energetic music because of the bass quality but able to scale on some audiophile recordings. You can be surprise how these bang-for-back iems sound compare to the top-tiers on a very good source/dap. Not really into the 232 and K3003 right now, maybe another time. And CIEMs are just pain complicated to order, especially when I am rooting the SE5-way.

 

Some IEMs I also want to hear are the 262, 272, GR07 (which first time I didn't like) and the EPH-100..which piqued my interest.

Nope, nothing for earbuds.

Hi, i'm Daniel from Italy.

After I broke the NuForce NE6 (I consider the best in ear headphones I've ever felt as the definitions of high, medium and low rather than good) I wanted to ask here since it's been done very well this topic: I know that everything is soggetivo but could you advise me on your next purchase? (maximum 50 ). The M2 Brainwavz Loe reputed pumped in low and medium, but as they are high compared to NuForce? Or in any case could you tell me the "best"? (I repeat, I know that is subjective, and I wish there was a store that you try all the face ... XD)

Can I throw in the suggestion here for everyone that you include what music you like to listen to, especially when asking for recommendations or giving impressions? For example, some IEMs (or headphones) that work well with jazz or classical may sound awful and piercing with modern pop and rock.  Also mentioning if you listen at quiet, moderate or loud levels is important. Same thing again. smile.gif

The M2 has decent treble, a little rolled-off at the top but clean and not harsh/sibilant. I think it would be a good NE6 replacement. You can also match the NE-6 a little below that price range - with the Dunu Trident, for example, or the VSonic GR99.

Hi joker, it seems that the RE272 is much easier to drive and would like to know how much of a difference compared to the RE262. I read that the 262 is kind of tuned differently to the other Hifiman lineup and wonder does the RE272 has a similar but improved performance over the RE262. If it is,can the RE272 justify the higher price tag compared to the RE262 or it is just a completely different sound signature. Thanks.

I think the most import thing to mention is what earphones you've been using (no matter how cheap) and what you find lacking about them. Because what works for one person in one genre may totally not work for another person even in the same genre. Me, I find that after I've found the right sound sig I like to use it on all genres with little variation.

I think the RE272 is slightly better than the RE262 but mostly just different in signature - brighter, cooler, etc. RE262 fans might not necessarily like the RE272 more.

This is my wish as well. Opinions on past IEMs and overall signature preferences make it easiest to provide good recommendations.

Here am I, re262 fan. I do prefer re262 over re272 due to the sound sig, though I consider re272 to be technically better. Judging by Leo888 forum sig headphones, I bet he will like re262 more too.
