Wind noise with the Turbine line is very minimal. Same with the Miles Davis. I don't think they're vented either. I walk my dogs with them all the time and have almost never noticed any wind noise.

Yep, wind noise will be minimal with sealed earphones but the only way to ensure zero wind noise is to use something that fits completely inside the canal.

Wind noise when walking and wind noise when going 30mph on a bike are two different things wink.gif

 

speaking of wind noise, how do customs fare on that front? They are typically more flush to your ears, so I would expect less wind noise...

Which type of wind noise? I have not gotten any while walking with any of my customs and I have not risked taking one on a bike ride. I would guess on a bike the only wind noise you would get from the air passing over the outside of it, as with an M6. Silicone or solid-fill customs might have an edge in that regard, too.

|joker|, excellent review of the MG7 Atrios.  I'd say you pretty well nailed it, especially in your discussion of the high end and how it has changed over time.  Did you notice a substantial difference in sound between the stock biflanges and Shure Olives? I find the Olives overly dark, Comply tips less so but still lacking compared to the biflanges.  Are there any universal IEM's which you would say provide better isolation?  For my ears, Atrios to have superb isolation compared to the limited selection of other IEM's I've heard.  I'm attending CanJam and am trying to pick a few IEM's to track down and listen to  :)

 

Also, this is THE most epic forum thread.  On the entire Internet.  Period.

then why i dont get any wind noise with the pl50? i'm sure i dont get the best seal with them but no wind noise. is it because it's a BA??

I suppose one could always wear a headband to reduce wind noise...

Looking For Around $20 Earbuds. Please Help!

 

 

I'm looking for a neutral sound, some-what noise canceling, decent bass, and I'm going to be using the Sansa Clip+ with it.

 

I found this on Amazon....good buy?

I do think that like the old MG5 Atrio, the MG7 is a bit darker with Olives but I don't think they affect extension. Rather, overall treble intensity, which to be fair the MG7 has plenty of in the lower regions. I don't have Complys in this small a size and I don't like the stock foams.

There are IEMs that isolate more - not just Etys and customs but also some ergonomic monitors from Shure, Westone, etc. There are also two other dynamics I've heard recently that isolate at least as well as the Atrios - the SE215 and the HiSound Crystal.

The J3 is alright but it's hardly bassy and errs on the bright side. Someone posted in the deal thread yesterday that you could get a MEElec SP51 for $19. I'd definitely look into that instead.

The 2 pm limit is really annoying!!

Anyways, back on topic, I currently own the monster turbine pro copper. I'm thinking of getting the JH13 or Unique Melody Miracle. Don't know which one to get though.

I listen to a lot of rock and hip pop music. Personally, I think Monster products just have a lot of bass, including the copper. I alway use treble booster as my EQ. The treble for copper is alot better than the original and gold, but it is still no where near the Sony MDR-EX1000. I love the treble on high end Sonys. But the bass is a bit weak. Bose quiet
And comfort 15 sound very nice and detailed. The placement of the instruments is excellent. I guess these descriptions gives you can idea what I'm expecting.

Wondering if upgrading from turbine copper to UM miracle or JH13 would be a big difference?

Thanks.

This list urgently needs the UE-4. I have a demo set in my ears right now. In front of me are lying the W4, JH5, TF10 and some more.

I can't - for the sake of god - tell if I prefer the W4 or UE4! Somebody has to do this decision for me! :)

 

W4: 356,90 €

UE-4: 460 €

 

The only problems I have with the W4 are veiled (not recessed) mids and mediocre timbre. The UE4 does both much better and adds an incredible soundstage. But it might be fatiguing after a while and I doubt the customs will be more comfortable.

 

Please help!

post #4288 of 16803

customs are much more comfortable because they are made just for you...

post #4289 of 16803

I don't think so. Customs don't have tips, so they trap the air in your ear canal. This is very uncomfortable when moving your jaw or on a plane. The W4 are extremely comfortable with Complys.

post #4290 of 16803

ya I guess. Overall, your ears are not very comfortable on a plane
