My Klipsch S5i rugged and Altec MUZX606(both are apple ONLY compatible) have no issues when connected to non-apple devices(SGP 5") though it has the apple remote but when I connect to a samsung cell phone it won't out audio, so I gotta have to press play/call button once,it works fine. This temp "shorting/grounding" makes it work,no need to press the play/call button continuously.may be because of CTIA standard than OMTP allows.

 

At the same time the meelec M9P,Brainwavz M5,samsung SGP's and my cell's stock earphone cable(single button/ MIC only ) works fine with all devices,the mic for calls,play/pause.

UE900 I think a bit too unbalanced for me based on review and PFE 232, I dont even know if any store in Hongkong got it. No thanks for the GR07 bass edition, dont want too much bass.

I will try the W4 and UE900 later and compare it with IE8, to see what will I gain and loss. JH13 or UM miracle I think is too expensive for me, especially when I'm also craving for akg k712.

Just curious, How do you compare simply between the W4 with UM miracle and JH13?

Are the price difference really justify the sound quality difference between the universal like w4 and hi-end CIEM like um Miracle and jh13

 

Bass edition is a bit of a misnomer... the GR07 BE is barely bassier than the PFE232. It's definitely no IE8.

 

The W4 is not as refined or extended end to end as the Miracle, has more mid-bass, and sounds darker overall and less level in the treble. Never got a chance to compare it to the JH13.

 

As for whether a top-tier custom is worth it, that really depends on you - how much of a difference you can discern, how much that matters to you, and of course how much disposable income you have ;)

Thanks for the reply then Joker. Will definitely try out the GR07, W4 and UE900.

Even though the CIEM are more refined, but those high price for just an IEM is not possible for me now.

Does steelseries flux have good soundstage? I want to use them for watching movies on phone/tablet. But I also listen to a lot of instrumental, movie scores and soundtracks. So highs have to be good aswell. Is it a good deal or do you prefer something else for 50€.

The Flux has a pretty good soundstage - they will work fine for movies. The only set I may prefer in that price range sometimes is the VSonic VSD1S (review here). The VSD1S is not as balanced as the Flux and has harsher treble, but it does sound a little more spacious and has slightly better clarity. You really can't go wrong with either of these.

My DBA-MK1 finally died on me last night after almost 3 years of service. Finally thinking of upgrading to customs - likely the JH13 FreqPhase - but eagerly awaiting for the 1964 v6 Stage review before pulling the trigger :)

Have you heard the Sony MDR7550? and the XBA-H3? 

If so, how do you reckon they compare to the EX1000.

 

Also, how would you rate the quality/quantity of bass on the 7550/EX1000 compared to the GR07BE?

Ety ER-4PT/S vs Fischer DBA-02 MkII... go!

 

My gut right now is ER-4PT, now comes with the P2S cable, order some red maybe white filters to play around with, JDS C5D and call it a day.  Though if someone knows a more direct path to that type of sound... let me know.  My wallet will thank you!

I think a lot of people are waiting for that V6 Stage review. It definitely is a nice custom.

post #12044 of 15276

Recently I've borrowed my friend's Fischer Audio Fa-004 and got blown away by it. The treble is a little too bright for me but the rest of the spectrum is absolutely amazing. Is there anything out there that is similar to this signature but with a slightly less bright treble?
