Less. The Momentum is pretty bassy - not a bass monster, but I don't think anyone will find it lacking.

Not sure - I didn't try them at CES when I tried their new Pinnacle so no idea how they sound. The feature set is impressive for $50.

What a great thread; I have been owning JH13FP but up to this point, i do have to admit there are higher-end models, would be great to see if you could review Noble Kaiser 10 , Roxanne..

Hello @joker , I'm thinking about a side grade to my w4r. An iem which is more suitable for my taste.

I've read your review of A83 and I liked it very much. You have compared it with w40. Do those comparisons between w40 and a83 hold true between w4r and a83?

 

I want an iem which has a little more air in its treble (currently I'm using sony hybrid tip with my w4r. w4r with silicon tips is way more veil) and a little more engaging and aggressive. vocals are great currently.  A little less bass is rewarding too.

 

 

Thank you for your help.

Yeah don't we all wish we could try both of those ;)

Yeah, I don't find the W40 to be more than minutely different from the W4/W4R. The comparison should hold up fine.

 

One thing the A83 doesn't have is less bass than the W40 - it's actually a little punchier. It's also a little less midrange-focused than the W40 - not lacking in presence, but not something I'd call vocal-centric. Otherwise seems like the A83 is quite a good fit for what you're after.

Hello joker!

Thank you for this, what you created here has already helped me a lot!

 

But since I don't really have any experience with IEM's I wanted to ask someone who does: 

I'm looking for an iem of under 150$, but since there is such a huge variety of different headphones, which seem to be quite similiar I absolutely don't know which headphones I should pick. 

 

I mostly listen to electronical music, especially Deep House. So I'm actually looking for an iem with a strong base, they should be clear though. Also I like listening to Rock, so I guess the headphones should also do well with faster music.  

 

The isolation and the microphonics should be good because I'll use them on the way a lot and I prefer to wear them straight down. 

 

Some help would be really nice.

The Yamaha EPH-100 would be my pick. Sound signature works really well for electronic music and is still versatile enough for other genres, excellent isolation, and microphonics are good as well.

Fascinating review Mr. Joker, very rich in details. I bought the Fighter iems directly from the Ubsound website in December and, to be honest, I'm really satisfied with their build and sound quality. I've got many iems and I generally use them with an iPod touch or an iBasso dx-50. I just finished the burn-in period of around 50 hours, even though they only reccomend 15 on the user guide. I would say that I mostly agree with your great review, except maybe the perception of the bass frequences and the related soundstage. I mean I found them a bit more v-shaped rather than basshead, with detailed Highs, deep and textured Bass and warm Mids a bit backwarded. But the bass never hides the other frequencies in my opinion. For example, I found the Beats you mentioned really basshead, but not the Fighter.. maybe it's just my perception? My most frequent setup is the Fighter together with the dx-50 listening to dance music. Also I found an official video on their video gallery website on Ubsound.com and it seems they talk about a v-shaped signature instead of basshead (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CyQNmfCrHt0). What do you think about that? Do you think the Fighter are actually basshead and not v-shaped at all? thx BJS

Im starting to really love my RHA ma750s.  The bass is incredible.  I turn down the 5k hz range a little bit or turn on -hip hop- EQ which does something similar and they sound rich and fun without being too bright since my ears are so sensitive to that range (while still retaining plenty of detail and punch in the upper register).

 

But im seeing a lot of reviewrs for different headphones mention they have the same problem as me with many headphones so Im glad its not just me.  We have dog like hearing I guess.  I've always noticed that high frequency noises from TVs and other things bothered me a lot more than other people that didn't even notice.  Fire trucks and ambulances also hurt my ears pretty bad i feel like im the only one that has to cover my ears.
