Well, that's too bad. You are missing out on some seriously impressive sound IMO. In fact, I've yet to hear a headphone, regardless of price and type, that will impress me more than the SE530 did.

To be honest I don't find the amp section of the E7 all that impressive but if you need it to double as a DAC it's still a very good deal.

I am looking forward with it

 

of coz, your effort are highly appreicated!


There's a list of upcoming reviews in post #8 right below the table. There are some UEs in there - I've got the earphones on-hand (well.. most of them) but not the time to write up the reviews. Hopefully they will be done by Christmas though.

How 'bout a comparison between the Final Audio Heavens A1 and the Ortofon EQ-5?

Ebay ones: http://cgi.ebay.com/Double-Flange-Earbud-Tip-Panasonic-In-Ear-Headphone-/200541822638?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item2eb1395eae#ht_3285wt_1115

 

After getting the meelec stock ones for my RE262, I love them and they sit perfectly comfortable in my ear. But I'm curious now and want to test out some other tips :)

I've liked Head-Direct's biflanges. When I bought this kit, it also contained a pair of smaller biflanges in addition to two pair of the large ones (my preference), and several more items than shown.

my favs are the meelec bi-flange over the small hifiman biflange.

Also the large and mid size sony hybrid copies (from lostearbuds on ebay)

Also i find cutting the 2nd flange of the stem of the hifiman large biflange works for me for a good seal.

I've tried those biflange tips Eraser and if you have ever had the PL30 it is the same biflange tip. I like the tips from MEElectronics better. There's also the HifiMan biflange tips which I really like the smaller biflange tip since the large is too large.

 

From my order of preference: balanced M9 > small HifiMan biflange > bass heavy M9 > ebay biflange

post #1447 of 16803

The balanced M9 works great, but is just a hair on the small side for me. the hifiman large is too big and the hifiman small is too small. The bass heavy M9 is the perfect size for me, but just a little too firm that it gets a little painful after long listening sessions. I'm pretty satisfied with the bass heavy M9s, but I guess this is like the case of goldilocks blink.gif. I'm curious now to see if any other biflanges will be my holy grail tongue.gif

M11+ biflange tips are also a bit different than the M9 biflange tips, you can also give those a try.

If the balanced M9 is just a hair off have you tried moistening the tip w/ water before insertion?  That might do the trick and get you the seal your looking for.

Thank you for this top-notch post! Your effort is beyond heroic! o2smile.gif

 

It would be really interesting to see your review of Senheisser IE6. I have been looking into it but haven't found many good reviews on it... I wonder if its a forgotten little gem

how would you say they differ? thinner, firmer, bigger, smaller, etc?

Hello everyone, I own the re0, i am very satisfied, and i want to give something under $ 100 with the same stamp but a little softer and lower, i tought sw-xcape or re zero. wath do you recommend?

post #1453 of 16803


Same for me, but I think both the xcape and the re-zero are too similar. I think there must be better choices to complement the RE0, but again I am not the right person to answer this. I am still awaiting my amp, I think getting an amp for your RE0 might be a better idea. Try to get the most out of it before looking elsewhere.

If you want a fun compliment to RE0 then perhaps the SB, TS02, HJE900, Custom 3 will do the trick.

post #1455 of 16803

yes, i have a fiio e7, and with re0 is splendid (for me), but i want to give me a gift without deviate much from that stamp.
