Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 905

My ue600's should get here today. Now the wait.. popcorn.gif
post #13562 of 16802
A friend of mine needs new iems for cycling. I know that it is dangerous, but he will use some anyways. So something that is not affected by wind and cable noise. Any recommendations?

Well, I got ta' tell you.....they do have a good look to them. I took a look at several Chinese websites and it kind of reminded me of the "SoundMAGIC ES20" IEM's. It would be interesting to get these Philips just to compare both, since I do carry these in my batch of IEM's.

 

They're very solid, too! With a pretty wide soundstage.

 

I don't recall seeing these in Joker's list, though.  :confused:

 

Here's a quick pick.....

 

 

 

.....So many red lights, we're all waiting for the green.  :biggrin:

The new philips tx2 is definitely quite good. Also I have to say that for that short tx2/pistons comparison I used for a first time the Dr. Chesky's Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disk and while in the past I have also used binaural albums for the soundstage part of my impressions, this album is definitely useful.

Pfe112 is best for that purposes but your friend needs a powerful source to get the best of PFEs. The cheapest option may be a Philips 3590 if he/she likes a V shape sound.

Joker.. <3 thank you 

the UE600's are :eek: <-- that good

I am loving them so far and will continue to. 

Also, idk why, but the cable on my right ear won't stay over. This always happens with IEM's and it's kinda frustrating when I'm trying to sleep. Any ideas as the the cause? Probably my ear shape.

 

Sidenote: Are high volumes bad for the BA drivers? I want these to last a while so I am trying to baby them.

SebsG, high volume is bad for your ears more so than drivers. You can replace your IEMs but you can't replace your ears ;)

Depends on what you want – more mid-centric with punchy but not very emphasized bass – Monoprice.  Slightly v-shaped with a good amount of bass – the 3590. I tend to prefer the Philips.

Could you also compare the JH13 Pro FP with SM3?


I´m thinking of buy the JH Roxanne instead of JH13 Pro FP, but I don´t know if it's worth...


Thank you!

 

It is not leaner than the SHE3580 but it doesn’t have the lush fullness of the SM3, either. The SM3 has emphasis on the lower mids and lack of presence in the upper mids, which gives it that sound. The JH13 does not suffer from a lower midrange bias.

 

I haven’t had a chance to try the Roxanne yet.

And I'm leaning towards t-peos d202(not the round cable), sony xba-1, meelec m9, tdk eb950. Or if you have any suggestions, that would be great. But i hope your suggestion are easy to find in the Philippines. Thanks!

 

Sony MH1C would probably be my pick for that type of sound. Isolation is not bad and it’s got a warm sound with good soundstaging. Not sure if it’s available in your region. The D-202 should be good as well if it's similar to my D200R, but I would still pick the MH1C over it for that type of sound.

Btw, joker, did you get the tx1 and tx2 already? 

 

Yep, they’re very impressive (and quite similar to each other..). Very spacious, like you said. They'll be getting a full InnerFidelity piece.

Depends on the price range – my go-to  is the meelec M6 at about $20-30. I've worn them for dozens of hours on a bike.

I have the CKX5. Supposedly the higher-end CKX models are tuned for more bass. The CKX5 already has more than enough bass for me. I really like the fit of these, though, it’s very secure in the ear.

Using the cable cinch should help.

If your volume is so loud that the armatures are distorting, probably. Otherwise it's worse for your ears than the earphones, like Francisk said.
