Indeed. They actually both have a mic (at least the ones I have) but one has the Apple remote and the other one has the more universal 1-button.

Am curious over the comparisons with the higher end universals, i.e K3003 and TG334,

and also how it fairs against the top CIEMS given the V6 more reasonable pricing =)

 

Nope, haven't tried the V6.

Yeah, they ship worldwide and the shipping is free for vsonic iems. LMUE use Singapore Post, so the package usually arrives in 5-10 days after ordering.

I think everyone wishes that. biggrin.gif I reckon a DIY'er would be pretty successful selling recabled MH1c.

Standard cable and something to make over ear use more comfortable. Would be huge.

So send an email to btg-audio to see what they can do for you, may be possible may be not!

Hey Joker,

 

My friend really liked the Senn IE800. Do you have any recommendations for a lower range universal model with a similar sound? The subbass was a factor I'd say biggrin.gif but it was also the midrange. Based on some reading, I was thinking along the lines of the MH1 or the RHA450 (for iphone remote). If you have any other recommendations, she'd be willing to spend up to $300 if the signature and quality can get close.

 

Thanks!

The past couple of days I've been looking for some bass heavy earphones with decent clarity around $30 and I've narrowed it down to five choices either Sennheiser CX250, Soundmagic E10, or TDK EB900, (IEMS) OR Koss Porta Pro or Koss KSC35 (both over ear). I'm hearing a lot of good about Soundmagic E10 but I am a little concerned about being sent a fake. Out of the five that I named which do you believe would be the most suitable for a bass head?

Hmm... that's an interesting question. The MH1 and RHA MA-450 would indeed be good choices if he was capping the budget at $60 or so, and the Velodyne vPulse if he was capping it a little higher. However, with a $300 budget, I would probably go for the Yamaha EPH-100. There is no remote but the Yamahas have great deep bass, rich mids, and decent treble. The bass is not as quick, tight, and clean as with the IE800 and the overall clarity and refinement lag behind the Sennheisers, but there's also a 6x difference in price.

I wouldn't call the E10 or CX250 basshead earphones. They have enhanced bass for sure but not basshead quantities. The E10 is my favorite of those - it's a very clear-sounding earphone with a pleasant overall sound. If you want really heavy bass, however, see if you have the JVC HA-FX101 or RHA MA-350 available to you.

Yes, but again not what I would consider basshead levels.

Haha yea. The IE800, oh man, I have no doubt that if I had walked into a bar with them and went, "here listen to this." I wouldn't be leaving alone.
post #11189 of 16803

Ok sorry if I sound a little clueless because I am but I think I'm going with the RHA MA350 I hear really good about the bass hope I'm not unsatisfied but they have to be better than Skullcandy Inkd LOL

post #11190 of 16803

some questions regarding the JVC HA-FXT90...

is the fit snug? or does it fall out of the ear with cable movement.....?

does the design provide a more secure fit than the id America Spark, for example, or less?

and is it harsh/sibilant a-la Klipsch S4? (i hate the S4's treble)

thank you so much.....
