Just received my IE7! Even without burn-in I can hear the potential already, they are so clear I love it. However it's hard to get a fit with the IE7, it always feels like they need to pushed in some more and the isolation ain't great. I still have to take the ultimate test and that is taking the subway. Right now I'm going to buy some eBay Sony Hybrids and Ebay Bi-flanges I hope that will fix the (lack) of isolation.

Edit: I was using the normal used because I was used to those on the CX400 and other IEM, but somehow on the IE7 the bi-flange and single Large sleeves fit perfect for me! They suddenly sound so much better instead of that hallow sound with a bad fit rolleyes.gif Can't even imagine how much better these IE7 are going to be biggrin.gif

IMO the isolation will always be a bit lacking with the IE7/IE8. I use MEElec 'balanced' bi-flange tips with mine as they are longer than stock and seal better for me.

The "first" universal flagship IEM and STILL top of the range for Ety... Newer products nearly always inflate prices to a degree... Then there's the whole issue of it being premium electronics, too... I like thick and loud sound so far but the ER4 is high on my want-to-sample list - if I ever wrote it down, lolcool.gif

In my opinion, the ER4 is one of the most underrated IEM due to its age, but despite of having quite a few top-tier contenders, the ER4 never fails to impress me on its accuracy and details.

What IEMs would you recommend that would last me the longest? My budget is up to $150. I was thinking of the Shure SE215 but I am still not sure.

In that price range I'd say Beyer DTX 101 iE, Ety MC5, or maybe ATH-CKM99. If you were looking at the Shures I'd go with the Beyers as they are at least somewhat similar in sound signature and sound quality.

Thanks very much joker!!  I'm a poor grad student but have made satisfied purchases, with your help, of Meelectronics CC51 and M6 earphones and most recently CAL! headphones.

Glad the thread was helpful. Nice collection you've got there - I could be happy with those.

Hey joker have you heard the Vsonic R04 yet? (not to be confused with the Visang R04 / M3).

 

 

post #4151 of 16802

Many thanks for your review Shure 215th But I think that somehow sound should be a little higher rated

post #4152 of 16802

 

There was someone on head-fi that sold all their headphones after buying the SE210 and they disappeared.

 

I can kinda understand them, except the bass was the weakest thing ever, so it must sound the opposite of the SE215...

I think I've temporarily settled on the SE215 as my iem. It sounds good, but more importantly it actually fits my blasted ears and doesn't stick out at funny angles and cause discomfort. This has been the greater deciding factor for me above sound quality.

Yep, good sound with poor fit is one of more unfortunate combinations out there. Glad you like the SE215.

Too bad they are not durable at all. I've been using my SE215's at the gym everyday for the past few months and they're pretty much dead now. Sound cuts out on both sides unless I keep my head at a certain angle and don't move all. It's pretty terrible especially because they are comfortable and sound decent.

 

My Meelec M31 have also been abused at the gym on a daily basis and they're still fine. I haven't used them in a while because they aren't as comfortable but they've never cut out on me.
