Multi-IEM Review - 329 IEMs compared (Tekfusion Twinwoofers added 12/02/14 p. 1008) - Page 894

Hey Joker 

 

Any thoughts on the NAMI as a compliment to my er4s? I was looking for something lusher for computer music which the etys make sound quite flat.

I get the feeling I would always be wanting something with better isolation and whatnot.. I know I've posted a few times before asking for suggestions, but never had an IEM exactly in mind to describe the sound signature I was looking for, but now I've found it in the form of the H3. Any recommendations on sets with similar sound signatures that isolate better?

 

I haven’t tried it. Sounds like the ergonomics are similar to the old EX-series units.

It’s been a while since I’ve tried the DT770 (250ohm version). From what I remember of them the MS01 will likely be a little too warm and dark in comparison- the VSD1S should be a better match. But, I can’t say with certainty how close it will be since I don’t have access to a DT770.

Might be too close in that respect, actually – the Nami has punchy bass but it’s not an earphone I would describe as “lush” – not enough upper bass/lower midrange bloom or note thickness for that. I would think you’d want a bigger contrast to your ER4S than the Nami if you just have the two earphones – at least something bassier like a Dunu DN-1k, or if you don't want more bass than the Olasonic simply a warmer-sounding earphone, like the MDR-7550.

Well, your resistance didn't last long... :p

 

As for something similar with better isolation, I found mids and treble pretty similar between the XBA-H3 and XBA-3. The latter are significantly smaller and isolate much better, but in turn you'll lose the dynamic driver's better bass extension and texture and the vented H3's huge and open soundstage.

The T-PEOS H-300 seem seriously nice, might be throwing that in to compete with the JVC FX-750.

Joker, you did a good review on the Dunu DN-1000 and I'm looking forward to your DN-2000 review biggrin.gif

Yep, thanks to the sale on Amazon.com, I said screw it and went for it. :D

 

Haha, but the bass is one of the things I like about the H3; I still haven't heard an IEM that uses BAs for bass that provides the necessary punch I'm looking for. :L3000:

I’m still exploring the lower bounds of the T-Peos lineup – haven’t tried the H-200 or H-300 yet.

I should have some early impressions of the DN-2000 ready soon. I quite like it!

Hi Joker

 

Did you have the chance to try the new Philips SHE9710?

If so what are your thoughts?

 

I tried them and really loved them, for the price in Japan (around $20) I felt like they offer value of iems in the 100-200 range.

Still waiting on DN200000000000!!!!!! XD

I was under the impression that all of the Flat-4 sets are different - Sui, Nami, Kuro, etc - see the release thread here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/676902/ocharaku-flat4-nami-th-f4n
