That's a pretty rare signature. If you don't want to go all out and get a custom I would say T-Peos H-100

Lol. Yeah, this.

Oohhhh, so I take it you are really liking the the DN1000?

Would you recommend them over the GR07 MK2/BE? These two IEM's are the only ones I've really enjoyed a lot so if the DN-1000 can better them then that's great :D
How well do they do with EDM?
Sorry for bombarding you with questions lol

Going just a little farther than curious here: What would be a natural step up from the Yamaha EPH-100? There's not a lot I don't listen to in the way of styles/genres, and I'm a sucker for the V shape.

edit: I'd be willing to save up no more than maybe $450 for customs (if that's even a price point for customs anywhere), and BA drivers are fine, too.

Different sound signatures - the DN1000 is a lot more v-shaped than even the GR07 Bass Edition. I happen to think its signature works very well with EDM.

Only one custom I've heard in that price range can do what the EPH-100 can do - the 1964EARS V3. Still, it really depends on what you're trying to see improved. Bass quantity won't go up from EPH-100, for example, but clarity and imaging will.

And i know you have the UE900, so do i. Black Friday from elgiganten biggrin.gif

I love the UE900, but i understand i can get better, and i'm a little addicted to this hobby biggrin.gif

Nice, a fellow countryman! Anyway. If you like the UE900, the FA-4E is almost a straight upgrade in all fields. And as I've said before the meelec balanced tips help the veil a bit and give a more open sound if that's the issue. The Fiio cable also helps a little bit but only marginally.

Regarding the Noble 4S, does the plate merge seemlessly into the silicone shell?

post #12384 of 16803

Hello Joker,

thanks to your magnificent list I ended up buying a pair of rs-50's and vc-1000's, which I both quite enjoyed (especially the rs-50).

 

Now I wondered which would be the next logical step up, just in terms of sound quality, from the RockIt Sounds.

My preferences are neutrality; tight, punchy yet not emphasized bass; good soundstage and overall clarity (money isn't of importance, I would also consider buying customs).

 

Thanks in advance,

Bauchspeck

Price not necessary? Go for custom-iem roxanne.

post #12386 of 16803

Sorry, I guess I didn't put it very well.

I just wanted to know which would be the next improvement over the rs-50's, not the best IEM's I could possibly get.

Can't afford to buy 1000 euro headphones, I would like to spend 300 euro (or less), but can stretch it up to 480 if improvements justify it.

Contact Piotrs Custom Art, and I'm sure you'll find the solution,

Can you ballpark the overall rating you'd give to the Dunu's? That would be swell :D

I can see where the silicone meets acrylic (mostly because the faceplate is colored) but in terms of feel there's no boundary. I'd say it's quite seamless.

Next step would probably be an Ety ER4S. After that you'd have to go for at least a mid-level custom like the Lime Ears LE3 or 1964 V6-Stage in order to really "upgrade".

Ballpark - RE-400/GR07 level.

Hey Joker hope you're having a happy holidays.

 

So I'm looking for an upgrade over my current Klipsch X10s. I've tried IEMs over the past year from Westone 3, Sennheiser IE80, UE TF10, Yamaha EPH-100. All of them have been pretty good but not exactly what I've been looking for. I'm looking for a comfortable IEM that isolates pretty good with clear mids & highs with an impactful bass but not so bloated to the point where it intrudes on everything else. I listen to mostly r&b, hip hop, alternative rock, acoustic, and some trance/electronica.

 

I've been looking at the Audeo PFE 232 for the longest time and now that they have been discounted finally are something in my ballpark. I've also been eyeing the Shure SE846 and Sennheiser IE800 but I'm kind of afraid to spend that much on an IEM. Also at the prices I'm looking at it would it just be better to go with customs? I will be using these mostly on the go through my ipod and on my laptop. Still looking into a portable amp/dac to go along with it.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
