Be careful with ebay there are many fakes of the FX500.

 

 

I'll pick up FXT90 from ebay from a trustable sealer like buyfromjapan I think

Which do you recommend:

 

Atrios G7

Tandem (seems deficient in the hights)

MTP MD or Trumpet

 

Thank you,

olear

 

Won't get less v-shaped than the Tandem but it's not a good companion to the TF10 since it will just sound dull and lacking in resolution. RE262 would be a better choice - more on-level with TF10 technically while having a totally different sound signature. The MD and especially the MG7 are not mid-centric.

thank you so much



There's reviews of the SR60 and the MS1i in my portable review thread. I never bothered to review the SR80 or SR125 but they are fairly similar to the two other Grados.

I can only go on various reviews that I've read, including those of 'average Joes' on the Amazon page, but most who have both the 535s and the Westone 4 seem to prefer the latter. As I said, that is purely based on what I have read.

 

Getting back to Joker's latest review, the CTM is the first custom that has ever made me consider spending the money on ear impressions - sadly, like many here, the cost of travelling to a big city and having the impressions done would be more than the custom IEMs cost.

Not meant as an offense to Joker, but you should trust your own ears above all. So if the SE535 sound great to you, it shouldn't be that important what Joker (or anyone else) thinks of them.

 

Besides, let's not forget that personal preferences may differ quite widely. For example, I prefer my FI-BA-SS to my UERM, even though they scored "only" 9.3 on Joker's list and the latter would most likely end up much closer to 10.
 

I'm a bit into wine collecting and in some way Joker's IEM ratings remind me of Robert Parker's wine points. On the one hand these are invaluable to find one's way among the overwhelming variety of fine wines. On the other hand I've witnessed more than once, that friends would rate wines differently if they knew the Parker points prior to tasting, or even tend to revise their ratings if I told them afterwards.

 

Don't get me wrong, I hold Joker's work in highest esteem, but you shouldn't outsource your own ears to him or anyone else. wink.gif

I got mine done for around $40, central Melbourne.

When will there be a review of the FX500? I would finally like to end the tough decision of purchasing either the FX500, FX700 or the GR07 before the New Year arrives.

How about GR06 (more bass and better vocals or smt) and pick up a different Vsonic model next year? Just an idea.

     I'm looking for great detail, clarity, imaging and no recessed mids with near basshead quality low-end.

I haven't heard the FX500 or FXT90 yet, for that price, I think I'll buy a pair as well.

 

 

Edit: Oh you mean the shipping, I think the shipping and fees will cost you around $25.

 

It should indicate when it's in stock or a pre-order.


 

There is not a direct shipment for Italy. You must subscribe to Tenso. It is this that refer?

Anyone able to help me out?

I am faced with a decision between Klipsch Image X10 (without mic), Brainwavz B2, Etymotic Research HF2/3/5 or Audeo Phonak 122?

My main factor is obviously music quality but also high isolation rating (I have no problem with buying and using other tips for better isolation).

I listen to mainly mainstream music now, but want to get into the Classics as-well.

The Klipsch seems to cost the most (but on sale now) which to me seems like it's the best deal, after all has good reviews.

Anyone able to suggest me on my purchase. (I'm open to other suggestions, but the budget is limited to <150$ and I read a lot of reviews and these seems to be the main and best contenders).

joker, having the tf10 with V shaped sound signature, I'm looking for a midcentric (with a bit of bass and warm/sweet) iem.

 

Does the ex600 have enough bass? ex1000?

 

The fx700 seems like it would fit the bill? except it's so expensive!

 

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Also interested in a three dimensional sound. And that's intimate.

MTP MD or Copper?
