OUch. LOL. I'm sure he means it in a good way wink_face.gif

Yeah I meant the reshelled into gummy bears thing.

 

If you think they're "very different animals" (not bears) then that's good.

 

If I find an IEM sounds exciting, or makes my music sound captivating, I can't help but adore it, which may colorize my thoughts a bit, such is perhaps the case for the EX600 and UE700, if I was a robot I'd perhaps call the CK10 the better technical performer overall than the UE, as a robot I'd also closely match the UE and the ER-4S (they sound closer than CK10, you must admit), as a robot I might also like the K2 SP, but as a music lover it was very difficult to get anything out of it, and in pure music terms I'd rank it lower than every IEM I just mentioned.

 

Edit: I'm not calling you a robot btw, ljokerl, I admire the fact you're devoid of brand favoritism and colorizing.

Thanks, but I think I like the one I've got just a little bit better tongue.gif

Err... When did I say that? I don't remember saying RE0 and RE252 sound alike either. I prefer RE-252 and even RE-ZERO to RE0.

Again, the gummy bear reshelling thing, you had it at the end of your RE252 review, on a different website, remember..?

 

I'm glad you and ljokerl don't think the RE252 is roughly an RE0 inside a mutant gummy bear, it was a misconception on my part, and by the way the RE252 looks like a seal or a dolphin to me.

post #3967 of 16803

I thought so! Actually, if you read closely, I quoted Joker's conclusion in that review wink.gif

 

Edit: Too many one liners (including this post tongue.gif) and topics that are better discussed elsewhere in this thread of late. Let's not hijack the Multi-IEM review thread into a random discussion thread. And to conclude, I don't think ljokerl is a robot.

TBH... who cares, it's time to reshell the RE272 into a custom, it already sounds like a high-end custom, what will it sound like... inside a custom? I think we are on to something here.

It shouldn't sound much different no ?

I mean, beside if you have a bad seal with the original, all you will upgrade is the comfort and maybe a bit the SQ if you manage to get a even better seal. I would be surprised if you get a significant upgrade SQ wise.

If you have to have the mid-bass lift, flat treble, flush form factor, or low wind noise - IE8. Otherwise I can't really see why you wouldn't get the Sonys.

I just noticed these are using almost the exact same housing as my old Qualia EXQ1.

It's a fairly common housing nowadays - there's a Radius model using it as well, and a number of others. I mentioned it in the review of those:

 

 

 

Quote:
Build Quality (4/5) – Metal housings sheathed in rubber feature long integrated strain reliefs and seem to be shared with the rare Sony Qualia MDR-EXQ1 canalphones. The plastic cabling is thick and sturdy. Oddly, the 3.5mm plug has 4 contact points despite the earphones having no microphone

I know it's been mentioned a few times already, but I thought I'd ask anyways; any chance the GR10 can make the list my friend?

post #3975 of 16803

i saw a while ago a reference to the meelec series explaining what each number and/or letter stands for

does anyone know a link to that?  cant find it myself now
