How well do the MA750s handle faster and/more complex tracks compared to vsd1? (See my past posts to check my music tastes)

Hey Joker. Any plans to review the New Victor JVC FX850? Would be interesting to see you do a pit-off against FX700/Fitears TG334/Sennheiser IE800 and K3003!

The Flux has less of a bass lift but better extension than the E10. If you want bass punch greater than or equal to the E10, don't get the Flux - it's probably too balanced for you. Get the VSD1 if you don't mind having more treble, or maybe the T-Peos D200R if you'd rather have a less v-shaped sound but still retain strong bass.

 

 

Thank you for the helpful answer.  After you mentioned about VSD1, I just realized that the price is hardly more expensive than GR02...only a few $ more which is totally fine with me. 

I read the user reviews & impressions about VSD1 here, and  it sounds more convincing that it's the right one for me.

I've been so tempted all this time to get VSonic because of their build quality reputation.  I love the cable better too than the Flux.

The flux looks good (simple design), but I'm not so crazy about the flat cable, which ....at least for me....a little too big & stylish.  Looks more like I'm wearing a long string of linguini pasta on my ears.

I guess I'm a little bit too conventional  :tongue_smile:

I definitely go  with VSD1 now.  Been so excited with Vsonic, and now is the chance for me to satisfy my curiosity.  :L3000:

Thank you very much.

Not any better. As you would expect, the heavier bass is not ideal for that. If you want resolution, the DN-1000 is a better choice.

No plans at this time. Don't have the FX700 anymore, anyway - it was a loan :o

To be fair to the Flux, it is much less gaudy than most other flat-cabled earphones out there - the cable is fairly thin and flat black in color. I do think the VSD1 is a better option for you, though. VSonic all but made their older budget earphones obsolete with their latest couple of releases.

Just so you know, the VSD3 series has better soundstage, instrument separation, and a bit more detail than the VSD1. No one is sure yet how the VSD1 and VSD3's bass compares (we've only heard the VSD3S which has more neutral, but a bit deeper bass), since there aren't any VSD3 reviews yet, but its price is not that much more than the VSD1 if you would be willing to wait until Lend Me Ur Ears or some other asian retailer gets more in. If you can't wait though, the VSD1 will still be a very nice upgrade.

Between the MA750 and the DN1000, which one is more durable? I want to reduce the risk of them breaking like my vsd1.
post #14047 of 15896
I dunno guys, the MA750 seems to win out in every category but sound signature. My concern is that it might be a downgrade soundwise from my vsd1.

Hey guys,

Been on the market for some new IEMs for EDM music, mainly dnb, tech-house, psy, techno. I've made my research and I've narrowed down the list to Yamaha EPH-100 , shure se215, beyerdinamic DX 160ie and rha ma750. Maybe there are better options, sadly these are the only ones for which I could find recommendations for edm music. Perhaps you could help me choose one of these, not really sure which one would deliver the best sound. Thanks

post #14049 of 15896
Hey guys, im new here and im interested in buying either the philips she3580/3590 or the monoprice 8320

I listen to a lot of EDM/ Progressive House etc, so i like a lot of bass in my music, does the philips she3580/3590 have a good bass and a nice over clear sound? And does it have a wider soundstage than the monoprice?

Im also open to suggestions
post #14050 of 15896

In that price range, I really like the 3590 for EDM, but I'm sure Joker can recommend you even more good options in that price bracket.

Everybody seems to really enjoy the EPH-100s for EDM and the like. I had them for awhile, but sold them to my dad. The isolation is fantastic, and he uses them for mowing under over-the-ear mowing headphones. He EQs the EPH-100 like crazy though in the treble cause he is a bit of a treblehead... I didn't like the fit, but I'm in a small percentage on that I think. They were also too bassy for my taste which I wouldn't have guessed, and the scooped out highs that made them too smooth and un-bright were not for me. And my ears are somewhat treble sensitive oddly... 

 

As far as I know(though I haven't heard the other three) the RHAs and Yamahas are techinically superior to the other two in the detail and clarity. The mids are more full & lush with the EPH-100 and more backseat on the MA750 supposedly. The RHAs are supposed to have more sparkle in the lower treble compared to the Yamahas.

 

I really REALLY like and recommend the Zero Audio Carbo Tenore though I know people have had issues with them. I haven't at all thankfully! And for reference I mainly listen to EDM type music. They are just plain awesome in my opinion. Really smooth and full across the FR. Also cheaper than the EPHs and considerably more than the MA750s if that any consideration.

Hard to say for sure but I'd give the nod to the MA750.

I've only heard the DTX160iE at a show briefly, but my current pick for EDM is definitely the EPH-100.

I would pick the Philips as well. They don't have the soundstage of the Monoprices but the signature will work better for EDM.

Joker posted the review of the Xiaomi Piston 2.0.  8.1 for sound for only $25!  The next one with 8.1 is VSonic VC02 at $49.

post #14054 of 15896

Wow, 8.1.

I tried them myself and found them to be too U shaped. Mids were totally recessed to my ears.

The highs of the Pistons are natural and the best I've heard in a long time. The bass was to mid-bassy for me.

 

I wouldn't give them a 8.1, but then again, I haven't heard anything near a percentage of iems joker has. He is the sole reason I started this hobby anyway. 

 

BTW I tried the Ivery IS1 clearhead was hyping a while ago. There nothing special. Fine for the price paid, but far to bassy and veiled over the rest of the spectrum.

I'm not really surprised by that Piston score. I expected it to score somewhere circa mh1 though to put things into perspective my first pairs of mh1c cost me $15 and the mh1 I got months into the hype still cost me like $25, so I can't just say "WOW, I have never heard anything like this for only 20 bucks".

Of course, the Piston's hype got a little bit out of hand with stuff like being the best sub-$100 iem, being better than all vsonics and that probably raised some expectations a bit too high. 

I personally wasn't too impressed but I acknowledged that I can imagine someone liking them a lot if that's the type of sound he's looking for. My main issue with them was the bass. which is exactly the opposite of what I like - slow, lacking control and proper attack.
