Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 37

For me this thread is "the Guide", yes He can make a site like clieos or so...

i dont think there is "the guide" as each person has there own preferences and unique ways they perceive things. Thats why its so great that there is so many in depth comparisons and reviews on head fli as you can truly get a good gauge on different products ..... But this is still the best guide

That is why I said it is "the guide" for me.

I understand his reviews and comparison, that is why I said it is the guide for me. Each one has its patterns.

Nice review additions as always. Looking forward to the Xears review, since they seem to be an enigma whose passionate following is isolated to a handful of users. Are they the sleeper hit of the year as some seem to suggest? Was that Playaz thread taken over by mental patients? Detective Joker on the case.

Thanks.


Nope, no gimmick. Granted, I didn't swim in them but I certainly subjected them to unreasonable moisture levels for an IEM. Very good option for those in search of gym buds.

Lol I've actually had the RE-ZERO review done for a while but didn't want to post it before/with the dual-drivers. Still, I concur

And I was very close to doing it, too, after the huddler switch. But a lot of my major gripes got fixed (or at least toned down) and this way I don't have to worry about paying for hosting or anything. I have been toying with the idea of adding a separate section of 'joker's recommendations' where I'd list the earphones I would pick for a specific sound signature or application. Still want to do that someday...

Haha, thanks for the laugh. No, they aren't mental. I do recall reading that someone liked the TD100 better than the MTPG and I find that a bit hard to believe but they definitely hold their own in the price range. Plus they fall in that rare crop of decent J-corded IEMs which some people like. It's really amazing what $50-80 can get nowadays, and I say that with full sincerity after (willingly) putting down the $250 MTPC.

HAHAHA!!! Well, they are really that good to my ears. Let's wait for Joker's thoughts about them.

i recently joined.. so posting some comments.. lol..

neways..

i'd like to congratulate ljokerl for his success in making this collective review, and also thank for sharing his opinions on them..

i found them quite agreeable (used to have eterna, dba02, bijou3, hippo vb)..

i would also agree on the slight extra points for ck10 vs eq7.. ck10 sounded more like a huge cans rather than iems in imaging, plus the vocals and breath are excellent.

looking forward to ur next iem victim.. :)

Thanks, and welcome to Head-Fi. I'm glad we agree on certain earphones - it should certainly make accounting for my horrible biases easier when reading my 'sound' blurbs .

Thing is, some people like the j-cord. I've been asked quite a few times to recommend a good j-corded IEM and there really aren't many that come to mind. Also, what's wrong with the build quality? They're no HJE900s but I find the construction quite reasonable for $50.

@joker: they sound good for the price but driver crackling is one big issue

Perfectly normal for budget-oriented dynamics. I can probably count on the fingers of one hand all of the dynamic-driver earphones that exhibit zero driver flex. Even the $250 MTPC crackles.

X2 on the MTPC crackling, granted it is very, very rare at least on my pair but it does still occur none the less. Not common enough to be an issue or annoying but it's something that if I actually think about it I can remember when it has happened most recently.

Driver flex is apparently in just about every dynamic driver earphone I've tried regardless of price. My Coppers had them so it's just something you get used to, RMA or get a BA earphone.
