Hehehe....I'm going for the Sony XBA-04 and either the Unique Melody Merlin or the Blue Future Sonics MG6Pro Customs VERY SOON.

I was about to go and drop about 300 bucks for an IE8 but hit the brakes when I learned about the upcoming IE80....looking forward to your review on that.

I doubt the IE80 will be available that far below MSRP any time soon. The IE8 might be viable for a bit longer until Sennheiser starts phasing them out for the new model.

My Future Sonics Atrio X shipped out around 2:13 AM last night. It shipped out from Indianapolis, so I should get it by the end of the day or by mid day tomorrow.

So i got the CC51s, certainly good but for some reason....i think i prefer the M1s right now. Maybe it's true what they say "the soul of music is in the Mids"? bigsmile_face.gif Have to try them both with different tips.

Which one of the sub 200 USD IEM's do you feel offer the most separation and texture?

Separation is key.

I got my Future Sonics Atrio X and I must say......AMAZING! The soundstage is huge in comparison to the CC51 and it a mixed, yet enhanced version of the CC51 and the SP51, but with deeper and clearer bass and the treble isn't edgy or harsh. The Sound Signature is dark most of the time, but at other times it's kinda bright, yet there is no sibilance or harshness. The sound is very smooth and it's forward with the bass and treble, but the midrange is a bit recessed, although it's on par or slightly more forward than the CC51. The Clarity is excellent and I can hear and distinguish the Male and Female Vocals quite well. It makes me wonder if the X and the M8 use the same drivers. I'll have more by tomorrow.

Serious dedication that keeps on giving and giving, |joker|.  THE go-to reference indeed.  Everytime I see an iem mentioned, I just go to this thread for all the info.  Not only sound, but accessories, wearing style, cord type, ratings etc. etc. etc....Then you answer questions as well....Simply amazing....Great job...beerchug.gif

Congratz on your purchase Niyologist...

 

I like da bass and I hear these have great bass. Are these the MG5?  I see some as 500-030, 500-051, however they all say MG5.  Is there a difference?

 

Thanks in advance...

      Thanks HeatFan12. Also, the Atrio X uses Version 1 of the MG5 Drivers, but my ears tell me Version 2.

The Sub-Bass on the Atrio X is quite an amazing feature from these earphones. The bass doesn't even overshadow the midrange at all, even the bassiest songs I have and it still  doesn't touch it. I'm a huge Hard Dance and Trance fan, so bass and clarity is a must and these IEM's are perfect for the job. biggrin.gif

Thanks...Nice!!!  Well, not for my wallet...I need to get out of this sub-forum...lol  I'm a house & trance fan myself and now I'm really interested...

 

Here is what I mean on Amazon they all look the same, but have different numbers...Could you point to the ones you purchased?  ANd while I'm at it, might as well ask- j-cord or y-cord?

 

Thanks a bunch!!

      I would go for 500-030:

      I purchased that, but it seems that the price went up, but this is an excellent deal. It's definitely a steal. Also, it's a Y-Cord.
