@Joker

 

What would IEM would you recommend for mainly Dance, Pop, Rap/Hip-hop and some techno/house/cub.

 

My source will be a DIYMOD 5.5G iPod video with a Pico Slim.


Willing to spend $500.

I am wondering when the TF10 review is coming also. Not sure what is taking so long, the TF 10 is one of the older IEM's and tons of people are waiting for the review, but I keep seeing reviews for the newer earphones, which is a little strange. Not sure what the hold-up is, I would love to know what joker thinks about them.

It looks like the TF10 review will have to come out sooner or later :P

 

Although I didn't really care for them as soon as I got the CK10 in my possession which will once again be mine soon but you knew that already :)

Don't worry - clarity is not sacrificed though the CC51 won't appear as clear as some of the brighter and thinner-sounding earphones for obvious reasons.

Would you consider going custom? I think staying in the universal realm with that sort of budget would require you to have a specific signature in mind. Genre preference don't always align with signature preferences but it seems like you may enjoy one of the more cohesive-sounding high end dynamics like the Monster MD or JVC FX700 (if isolation is not necessary).

It's really quite simple - I've owned the TF10 for a long time - almost as long as my CK10 - and have been planning its review this whole time. However, it takes a backseat to most of the other sets I review since

 

1. It is not on a clock. When I borrow sets from people or get manufacturer review samples, I automatically put a reasonable deadline on their review. Whenever that happens, everything that is non-essential gets pushed back. Right now five of the earphones in the queue are borrowed pairs and have priority over the TF10.

 

2. It is old and, thanks to the amazon deals, very common. There's dozens of impressions of the TF10 in the long appreciation thread and posts comparing it to nearly everything else out there. In contrast to that, there is one (AFAIK) review of the ECCI PR401 and none of the Mee A151, so I felt that my time was better spent on those.

 

3. I do a lot of my listening on the go - public transport, lunchtime at work, walking around town etc. The TF10 has never fit me well enough to sound its best while I'm moving about, which means that in order to review it I have to find time to sit down and focus on it at home, and again sets such as the (borrowed) FX700 take priority there.

Isolation is semi-important to me.

 

How about the IE8's?

 

I don't want customs as I'm young and my ears will change.

post #1987 of 16802

Hey Joker,

 

I'm going with Phonak Audeo PFEs w/ mic.  I think it's the 022 model (it cost me 99 bucks on Amazon.)

 

I'll tell you how it plays out.

 

edit:  Just realized I went with the wrong model, canceled and bought a white pair (121s)

 

I hope this plays out well.  I'll post my impressions as soon as I get to spend time with them.

 

Thanks again.

IE8 really doesn't have great isolation, either. I think it sounds good but I prefer the MD and FX700 myself.

I think the 0** models are the Phonak Perfect Bass (come with the green "bass" filters) while the 1** models are the Phonak Perfect Fit (come with the grey "treble" filters and the black "balance" filters) so you should be a careful of what you order. I think the second number refers to the presence of a microphone (1=no mic, 2=mic) and the third refers to the color (1=white/silver, 2=black).

I definitely got the mic version, but I went with the perfect fit version (121) for the comply tips and grey filter.  I could probably still cancel the order if necessary.  Is the price hike worth it?

 

edit:  I just took a look at my cell phone bill, I changed my order to the 022 (with the mic).  I don't think it's going to be bass heavy if the impressions are any indication of what to expect from the sound.  I gotta stop with this indecisiveness.  I'm sticking with it this time.

No offense to Mike but the the TF10 is quite old and has been reviewed to death. I think he really can't bring anything new to the table and it should be on the back burner. Use the search function. There is all you need to know about the Triple.fi 10 and then some. There is plenty about them on the web outside of Head-fi as well.

I still would like to see a TF10 review in this thread just to get ljokerl's opinion on how it stacks up against other IEMs. But, I am in no hurry and would rather have FX700 reviewed first.

post #1992 of 16802

Joker ,

 

Any chance of a quick review on the 2 Meelec CC51 and SP 51?

post #1993 of 16802

Is the thinksound rain worth an extra $10 over the Woodies 101B if I want durability, good soundstage, comfort, and balance?  

 

BTW what is the difference between the Woodees 101B vs 200B vs the 101L(this looks to be a bluesier model with dark lacquer finish)?

None taken - I think I admitted to as much. I have very little to add regarding the sound of the TF10, which is not to say I'm not interested in putting it up for comparison purposes.

Quick - no, but I'm aiming for Tuesday or Wednesday for putting up the full reviews. My SP51 seems to be done burning in so I'll start playing with the tuning tonight.

I would say yes - go for the rain. No idea what the different woodees models are except that the *00 ones have a microphone and the *01 ones do not. Also, the orange metal trim on the ones I had was particularly hideous. 

post #1995 of 16802

Thank you. Yeah I saw some with almost this hotrod orange flame type scheme on Amazon that looks pretty gaudy. I also noticed the 00 are the sports model with a little difference in the shape.
