Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 325

that occurred with my JVC HA-FXC51, but only for the left side.

They would be dead, then when you push them in they come alive inside your ears and I doubt it's a cable problem

I got my Fiio E6 and it works pretty well with my Atrio X. It makes my Atrio X incredibly bassy at Level 3.

Oh hell yes!!!  I love the fit of the Atrio X, but I just wish I could get more bass out of it...mind you I probably only have about 20 hours burn-in.  I was considering a ZO2 but this is a much cheaper option.

 

How would you compare the amped bass of the Atrio X with the SP51 black plate?  Also have you tried the SP51's with it?

The Miracle is also smoother, thicker, warmer, more lush, much less strident at the top, and the soundstage is a lot more enveloping. Aside from balance and soundstage size, it's probably closer to the UM3X than the W3.


Thanks for the reply! I am really looking for an IEM that can satisfy me on acoustic music with a lot of female vocal. W3 just seems to produce really good sound for this preference but I want an upgrade. Do you think Miracle is good choice for these genre?

Edit: is vocal on Miracle laid back as much as triplefi? I cannot stand that muffled vocal =\

     The bass amp of the Atrio X is much greater than the Extreme Bass port of the SP51 and it's slightly cleaner and definitely deeper. Sounds like being in a club. bigsmile_face.gif

And your source is a Sansa Fuze?  I have a Sony NWZ E-354, and I'm wondering if I'll achieve the same results.  The price is definitely right though.  Before amping, your SP-51 enhanced bass is deeper than the Atrios right?  Reason I ask - I only have limited burn-in hours on the Atrios so I don't know if with more hours it'll get as deep...right now SP-51 is deeper than the Atrios for me.

Hi Joker, I realized that the M9's and the CC51 are in a higher price tier than they should be...

 

The  Sp51's are only $35 bucks at Amazon, and the CC51 are only $40.

 

I am sure the value for these would be MUCH MUCH higher at such a low price...

Of course, if you are just going by MSRP prices I understand....

     The SP51 with the Enhanced Bass Port is slightly behind in comparison to my fully burned Atrio X before amping for bass depth and quantity. The Sub Bass is amazing on the Atrio X. It's cleaner, deeper, quicker and definitely more natural sounding than the SP51.

Thanks in advance.


The SBA-03 is a very good earphone, review should be up in 2-3 weeks. It rates about on-level with the Fischer Tandem and Ety HF5 for me. It is definitely a full-range armature with good bass punch, very strong mids, and reasonably bright treble but not something I would bill as an Xcape IE alternative - the sound signature is quite different.

Thanks but not to worry, I take plenty of breaks. Got a vast pool of finished reviews to pick and choose from to keep on posting at the same pace even when I'm not listening or writing.

There is also no chin under my beard, only more ears.

If you want something fuller, warmer, and smoother - sure. If you are used to the crisp, thin note presentation of the W3 you may want to find a more analytical custom.

I go by street price at the time of writing. If I go back and change the CC51 and SP51 scores, I will have to be fair and update the prices for everything and really, I'd rather not. Head-fi is a worldwide community and I leave it up to the reader to find the best deal available to him/her.

Last question, is vocal on Miracle laid back as much as triplefi is? Because TF vocal sounds too muffled to me. By the way, it really helped! Thx for taking time to answer my questions.biggrin.gif

Right now I'm looking at getting some ~50$ IEMs. Specifically I'm looking at the Etymotic S4 and the Meelectronic A151 (Both can be had for ~50$ on amazon atm)

 

A major concern for me is that a lot of people complain that the bass is lacking in both of them

If I'm looking for a balanced sound (other headphones I have used include grado sr60 and Shure srh440, and I found both to be great), will I find the bass in these two IEMs to be lacking?

 

 

Any other highly recommended IEMs around this price range?

You mean the Klipsch S4? or the Etymotic MC5? totally different IEMs.

Anyway, regarding the A151's. I really don't find them to be all that lacking in the bass department, though they do have a slight midrange emphasis.

If you want another IEM in that price range, the MEE CC51 can also be had for around the same price. I heard them once, and I thought they had a slightly bassier sound than the A151s, and a little more natural decay in general? I'm not really sure how to describe it, and keep in mind I only heard it once. But that's another option.

If you like acoustic music with female vocals then the Ortofon e-q7 is really good with that. Hope this helpsbiggrin.gif
