Make sure you look into the GR07 Bass Editions - they are getting a lot of praise. And as far as using them in bed, they are my most comfortable iem's for that because they have a very flush profile (ie don't stick out very much) and I can lay the side of my head down without much discomfort if any (in fact, I fall asleep like that fairly often which I can't do with my other iem's). And I find that they stay in better being over the ears (especially if you use the guides).

Not sure how you're getting microphonics while reclining but together with the cable slider over-the-ear wear should still work. You could even get some cable guides to fix the cable in place.

Really insightful review on the RE-400... I have no business owning them as I have enough IEMs right now but that review makes me scratch my wallet.

It's the thrill of the chase. I have tons of IEMs and still get it every time something new is in the mail.

I've had Atrio M5 (MG7), Audio Technica WS55, a traded for pair of PFEs and GR07 Bass Editions come in through the mail in the past month. I know that feeling all too well. beerchug.gif

which model  i should choose soundmagic e30 or e10? or other brand? 

post #9772 of 15318

G'day everyone,

 

thanks for all your work ljokerl, outstanding.

 

Been using a old battered pair of ER6i a mate gave me a looong time ago.

 

They've been reconditioned four times with new leads but I'm ready for something new and Vsonic GR01 are top of my list.

 

I'm also considering Go-Dap 4.0, reckon it'd work well with GR01?

 

Cheers

You'll have to be more specific about your budget and requirements. The Soundmagics are both solid IEMs, along with about about a dozen others in that price bracket.

I'm not familiar with the Go-Dap but on the GR01 - you might want to wait for some impressions of the new VSonic VC1000 (mentioned on the previous page) to roll in. Seems like it might be a better deal than the GR01 if it sounds good.

ljokerl, do you have any experience with the Sennheiser HD650 headphones? I'm trying to find the closest sounding IEM to the HD650, and I wonder what's you opinion about this (if you know the HD650's sound, of course)...

Thanks.

Thanks.

Not joker:) but the closest I've heard to the HD6xx is the Senn IE 8. It has that rich grain free sound, but just sliiightly warmer.

Well, someone already pointed that one to me on another thread, and it makes perfect sense that the closest sounding IEM to the HD650 would be a Sennheiser too! I'm looking into those, but I can only find new units of the IE8i. I guess they're supposed to be the same IEM except for the cable, right? What about the IE80? It's a newer model and easier to find, but I'm not sure what the sound differences are to the older IE8...

IMO, the IE80 is inferior to the IE8. It's quite a bit grainier, and doesn't sound as fluid.

IE8 has a lot more bass than HD650...
