Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 298

post #4456 of 16803

Congratulations on the 200th Joker, five stars! I am thinking about some Sunrise headphones, but I'm unsure about the build quality. Do you know if new batches solve the overheating/cutting out issue?

Yes, the Resonance is a bit flatter than the M2 and has a thinner note and slightly better clarity. If you wanted a bigger clarity upgrade you could try a MEE CC51 or Sunrise Xcited.

 


Thanks again for your time and your answer,

 

Regards!!!

That's a tough find for under $100. Best I can think of is the Fischer Silver Bullet but it's not quite as big an upgrade over an M2 as you're describing. For that you'd have to spend more.

 



Thanks.

 

If I spend more so what would be the best earphone according to the Sound Signature I'm luking for? Also what about MEE CC51, ECCI PR401? I think that PR401 has less bass than M2

For some stupid reason, I didn't think to look there.  That list is insane.


'Insane' as opposed to having reviewed over 200 IEMs, roughly a hundred portable on-ears and God-only-knows-what-else ?  eek.gif

 

Like Skylab, Joker has more kit than Jesus.

From what I've seen so far, they have not. I am waiting for them to get back to me regarding changes that have been made before I add those reviews (and build quality scores) to this thread.

Both have less bass than the M2, though not by a huge amount. You can try them and see if that helps you hone in on your ideal signature better. PR401 will also have a wider stage than the M2, though it's also more mid-recessed than the CC51.

About the same quality-wise but with a very v-shaped sound signature against the more bass/mids-heavy UE350.

Hi again ,

There are so many possibilities that I feel a bit lost now... so maybe you can help me out to make the best choice tongue.gif

Looking for wide soundstage, airy sound, (very) good separation but still well detailed. Mids should not be too recessed (for vocal) & not anemic bass.

Actually I'm looking for the:

 

FA Eterna V1

FA Silver Bullet

Phiaton PS200

Vsonic GR07

Sunrise Xcape IE (?)

 

Budget limit is 100/120€

My 1st choice would be Silver Bullet or PS200 but PS200 is almost 2x more expensive than SB...

 

Thanks for your recommandantion wink.gif

Thank you for your reply. Now one last question. Between MEElectronics CC51 and ECCI PR401 which has more treble quantitatively and which has smoothest treble between the both?

So I took out the m2 from like a very long storage in its case as I figured i'll take them to work instead of my customs since they work better. They don't offer as much isolation and it is easier if I just want to have only one ear listening to music.

 

They sounded pretty damn good for $50 or whatever the MSRP for them is.

Changed my mind. I'm now going to purchase the Atrio X (MG5 Transducer). How does the Atrio X compare to the Atrio M5?

Bass of the PS200 might be a bit too weak. I would go GR07 in its price range or Silver Bullet in the lower price category. Xcape IE seems to have some reliability issues.

The CC51 is brighter. I don't think either is significantly smoother than the other.

With the same driver and the same housing? Probably pretty close..

Not better but different. I have not yet reviewed any of them.

ljokerl...any advice for me?

 

I'm looking for a jack of all trades, focusing on classical (lots of strings, lots of choral pieces and some symphonies), then 1950-60s jazz and ending with alternative/folk. Do I go with the RE272 ($250), GR07 ($170ish) or the W2 ($200 now from EarphoneSolutions w/ coupon code).  In general, I like balanced armatures, but one of my favorite iems was the IE7, so I'm leaning toward dynamic for something new. The IE7 wasn't perfect; I think it could have tighter bass and more treble extension, but the mids were amazing. I hate shelling out $250+ for the IE7 (especially after so many purchased it for $100 or so this spring when it was discontinued) and am hoping one of these is better. I've owned the W2 in the past. Again I find the bass a little bloaty, but the W2 is impressive besides that and probably my top pick for a mid-budget all-genre phone of those I've owned. So they present a good alternative. The dark horses for me are the RE272 and the GR07. I'd appreciate any advice. (Maybe, a single phone isn't best... I could do something like a GR07 and a HF5 maybe, etc.. I'd prefer one though.)

 

I really like the W4. I'm trying to get something a little cheaper though, but still trying to find a quality, long lasting phone. I find its weaknesses to me are probably a little warm and lacking energy, but it really is an amazing phone. I guess I'm looking for something a little bit more dynamic/less reserved, though in general I tend to neutral phones...

Thanks ljokerl! I'm really happy to see that my purchase will be very well worth it. biggrin.gif
