so do you think that does it worth to get those tips (ie8 or MEEElec tips)?
in fact one of my friends wants to buy fxt90, and he's worried about the sound isolation, according to what I've understood, he likes a V sound signature headphone with good isolation and good build quality, according to your review I thought that fxt90 is the best match for him. but I'm kind of worried about the isolation of fxt90. do you know any substitution for this?
I wouldn't say it's worth it but if every bit of isolation is important, it doesn't hurt to try the aftermarket tips. The JVC FXD80 has better isolation so that might be an option as well. I prefer the sound of the FXT90, though.
I know it's cheaper but I actually prefer the VSD1 to the GR06. If you want more forward mids and the over-the-ear form factor, the GR06 might be a better buy but I like the more v-shaped signature of the VSD1.
Hey, I was wondering if the soundmagic E10 would be the clearest sounding headphones at that price range? I've been looking around for a few days and have seen these recommended many times. Also, will I notice a difference between the soundmagic and my current ( the newer default earbuds)?
Thanks a lot.
The E10 is a nice and inoffensive earphone. It's a popular recommendation for a "first step" because it combines good clarity with punchy bass and is neither overly unforgiving nor too dark. I even included it in my concise buyer's guide, for this reason and because it's readily available in many countries.
However, if you're purely after clarity, there are better options, like the recently-reviewed ETY-Kids, the LG Quadbeat, or the VSonic VC02.
