how do you compare bass quality and especially quality beetween gr07be and monoprice 8320 (i know it's silly to compare them, but it's only my iem i have)?

which has bigger impact and more powerfull?

The bass edition has a slight bass emphasis. If you are looking for a balance signature, then i think you should look at the Mk2 version.

Wow.  The Monoprice is crap.  Heavily hyped crap and definitely among the IEMs I regret buying (regardless of it's tiny price tag).  Any version of the GR07 will be an enormous step up in quality.

I noticed you recommended the RHA MA-750 in InnerFidelity's Holiday Gift Guide. It sounds like it would fit into the "Warm & Smooth" sound signature area described on The Headphone List. That said, I was wondering how it compares to the Yamaha EPH-100. Any input?

 

Also, Merry Christmas! :bigsmile_face:

 

It does! I think the MA-750 is great for that type of sound. So far I'd say it's at least on-par with the EPH-100 in overall sound quality with slightly diminished bass quantity (not a bad thing, the EPH-100 has tons) and maybe a little less upper midrange presence.

3) Which one has the best separation for vocal and instrument?

4) Which one has the best "QUALITY" (not "QUANTITY" ) bass that punchy, fast, deep and extended?

Thanks again.

 

I feel like you should be more concerned with the fact that the DN-1000, StageDivers, and DBA-02 mkII have completely different sound signatures. Imaging and separation are just details - these IEMs sound nothing alike on the most basic level and choosing between them based on which has the best detail level is just strange.

 

Anyway, the SD-2 and SD-3 are way too different from the DBA-02 MKII. I think the DN-1000 is closer to what you want (a DBA-02 with a lot more bass but no drop in clarity/detail/separation except where the bass is too big to keep up with the DBA-02).

Si Puedes Vivir con algoritmos Menos De La CANTIDAD De tumbas, Florerias Obtener Mejor Calidad de sonido estafa algoritmo de como el VSonic VSD1 - Precisión alcalde una, tono Un Mas neutral, etc 

 

 

Thanks a lot Joker,what do you think about JVC FX80 is similar to Klipsch S4 signature?,and for  have  a cheap replace what you think about Dunu Trident and rha 350? .If there arent similars to  my sound cand you recomend me a cheap ones betwen 30-60?.Thanks  and sorry for my English I am spanish,you are great!

 

The FXD80 has a different type of sound than the Klipsch - not so much bass impact and more emphasis on upper mids and the top half of the frequency spectrum in general. The Trident and MA-350 don't have the v-shaped signature of the S4.

Thanks a lot for your answer ljokerl. Certainly is very difficult to find an IEM like LCD-2, but these ones you say can be good. SD-2 seem an excellent option.

 

And Merry Christmas!!!:beerchug:

 

Happy holidays!

If you find the SE535 to be lacking a bit of treble presence and extension, then the UE900 would be better. It's also less mid-focused overall. Otherwise it doesn't really have any strong advantages over the Shures.

They are very nice earphones :etysmile:

The GR07BE has quite a lot more bass and is more impactful and  powerful. The Monoprice is more mid-centric with less emphasis on bass and treble.

Got an email this morning for the Etymotic MC2 at $19.99 + shipping from amazon. Very good deal for an MC5 variant, cheaper even than the Ety-Kids.

Thanks for the notice Joker, much appreciated! 

I think this is a US only deal by the way. They don't ship to The Netherlands. 

But I'll keep my eyes on your site for other deals.

Hello guys, I have been trying to search this forum for a while, but I still could not decide what IEM to buy. Please help me out.

 

I need microphone, and volume up/down buttons.

I will use it with my nexus 5 and computer.

My budget is up to $20.

I live in Canada ON.

I can buy it from any trusted and famous website that accepts paypal, although I prefer ebay.ca.

 

Let me know if you need any other information.

Thanks.

Great review on the Stage Divers @|joker|; thank you!

I'm currently looking for a good reference signature universal with great natural sound/timbre. Should I consider the noble 4 and the SD-2 in my priority list? Which of the two is closest to natural sound?

Cheers!

If I may, I'd recommend the Etymotic HF5. I think it's probably the best deal in audiophilia. IMO it's top tier sound at a true steal of a price. I say this because it produces notes with the refinement and effortlessness of summit-fi earphones (look at my profile to see what I've heard). It's also very much reference a reference signature.

 

The downsides are this:

-the proper insertion is deep enough to make you dizzy for the first few times. I imagine it's like losing one's anal virginity. You'll get used to it over time, and the sound you get is truly worth the initial discomfort. Plus, the isolation is ridiculous. I took it on a flight, and I only remembered I was on a plane because of the vibration of the seats. I couldn't hear the engine.

-secondly, the bass drops off rapidly after 50Hz. Above that, it's huge and impactful when needed. It almost rivals my ASG-2 in impact and attack (but obviously not quantity). It's truly impressive bass. You can choose to boost the sub-bass if you please.

 

IMO, it's one of those iems I think everyone should give a shot, along with the GR07.

That is quite interesting. I'll read about them... thanks!

Hi Joker, can you (or someone else) who has heard both the Vsonic GR07 (mk.1) and Dunu DN-1000, give a brief comparison of both IEMs?

post #12449 of 16803
Hi joker,

I don't like trebly sybilance. My iems now are the wooduo and qjays. Love them.
But saw the w3 amazon deal. 160$. Including shipping turns out only 160€. Great deal.

But after reading your post have my doubts. Not sure if w3 is for me .scared of its highs. What do you think.?

For example the dt 770 is a bit to much for me.
