My Xeport 5010-8 sounds Very 3 Dimensional and it also has a Large Semi-Circular Soundstage. Really rare for a pair of IEMs at cost $14.99 or even the original price of $69.99.

I'm kinda leaning to something neutral or close to neutral, and I think I prefer the fast, hi-res sound of the hf5 to the EX600. Works great for power/speed metal.

Any suggestions?



Ortofon EQ-5

What do you mean by this? you wouldnt compare it, as if they are different or the crystals better than vsonic?  I can hear that Crystals have really good instrument separation.. is this what you mean? and also big dynamic range?

Still i think that the fully closed design makes things kind of congest and air pressurized.. more like something that has to do with my ears. When i travel i always feel my ears clogged and i have to blow my air in my ears by holding my nose. Maybe i get extra sensitive to pressure.. I had my right ear drum blown as well 3 years ago by a 15meter diving.

The accuracy of the Xeport 5010-8 matches the Atrio X. It's like it has the characteristics of most of my earphones. The excellent clarity of the GR06, the accuracy of the Atrio X, the deep bass of the SP51, the clear midrange of the CC51, the extended, yet non sibilant treble of the M6. The huge Soundstage surpasses my GR06 and CC51. This sound signature only took a few tweaks from my Cowon J3. Pretty simple tweaks. I guess I don't see the point of keeping my M6, SP51 and CC51.

     No, just bought it out of curiosity and the review about it on Amazon.

I am looking into my 1st higher-end pair of IEMs, but I'm not sure what would be best for funk, New Orleans, and jazz. I also listen to a lot of classic rock (Led Zepplin, KISS)

Some examples of the music:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-atDxmfnIrI&list=PL8F815C0A29FC25BE&index=1&feature=plpp_video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcbIBnPrOTA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq_Gdnq2SS8&feature=related

I am looking something with a warmer, more musical sound. However detail and sound-stage are still important, especially with the brass. Bass emphasis isn't too important. I'd like to stay around $300 plus shipping and possibly impressions, 350 is my max. I'd prefer customs due to concerns over comfort and fit, but I can always get universals reshelled at a later date (when I have the money). So far I'm looking at the CTM200s (at the top end of the budget), HiFiMan 272(maybe a bit too analytic), 262 (cheap enough that I could get them reshelled into customs), Kozee X2 (again, a bit pricy), and Westone 2( too much bass?).

 

Any advice as to which would be best?

Metal bits and a modular cable with an apple mic? Might make them a little more consumer-friendly but hopefully not just adding more weight for poorer sound quality.

No, in presentation the Crystal doesn't have much on the GR07.

I would start with the RE262, personally. I don't know who does dynamic re-shells but IMO in the current configuration the RE262 should be comfortable for most and the sound seems to suit your tastes.

This is my favorite.

I am looking for an IEM that has similar clarity, texture, thickness of notes as TF10 but with a different sound signature.

Which IEM?
