The TS02 is more v-shaped, again with less forward mids, a bit more treble sparkle, and similar bass impact with a little more depth. The PS20 has the widest soundstage. For more specifics you'll have to read the reviews - I haven't listened to the TS02 in a while.

 

Then I think I will need to stick with the M2's only confused.gif

In many ways like an FX700 but with harder treble. Review coming soon.

I'll get an email out. I've tried to get a review sample for my website, but alas, to no avail. I'll tell them that the biggest IEM junkie in the headphone world would like to review your flagship. wink.gif

Not the first hybrid universal - UE did it years ago with the now-defunct SuperFi 5 EB (1x dynamic, 1x armature) and Scosche did it more recently with the IEM856 (1x dynamic, 1x armature). 

 


 

that was ignorance on my part, not meant to claim it the first ever hybrid-u, just one that may have tremendous potential and wondering which company will be the next to continue what may become a promising trend...

@ ljokerl - are you heard Brainwavz ProAlpha? Are they better than Brainwavz M1?

I wonder, would going from MTPCs to the GR07 be an upgrade?

Well, it's 0.2 points higher on Joker's SQ scale.

I haven't heard the Scosche but I thought the SF5EB had quite a lot of potential so I'm with you there. The drivers were out of whack with each other but otherwise there was surprisingly good midrange-treble performance for the amount of bass it had. And the form factor was terrible.

The ProAlpha is also called the ViSang R02. It's mentioned a number of times in the M1 review and also has its own review in this thread.

Depends on what you're after. If it's accuracy and neutrality - yes.

Am currently using Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision, would like to change to Ultimate Ears 400vi.

What would you recommend?

I have no experience with the CX300-II. If the UE400 is the same as the UE500, it's a pretty good earphone for the price.

Since returning my UM3X I've been trying to find a cheaper alternative that comes even somewhat close to their amazing presentation.

 

My SoundMAGIC E30s arrived today.  My first impression was... meh.  It turns out they needed the right tips.  For me, the large clear UE tips work perfectly - allowing for a tight seal and better bass response.  OK, these things are in no way close to the awesomeness of the UM3X, but they're in the right area.  Warm, slightly mid-centric.  Not as forward and intimate as the UM3X.  Vocals and guitar do well with them.  During busy sections of music the separation is not nearly as good as the UM3X.  The bottom line, for rock and funk these things are great for <$40.  I'm listening to Rush right now and having more fun than my SE535s.  Something is seriously wrong here!

 

Still... I'm looking for the next "cheap-o-UM3X."  My Brainwavz M2s should be arriving soon.  I'm holding hope.

Looking forward to the EX600 review and I wouldn't mind a review on the JVC HA-FXC51.
