Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 371

post #5551 of 16802

Joker, how about reviewing the JVC HA-FXC51? It seems like a great improvement over the FXC50.

One Aussie e-tailer has an 'End-of-Life' tag on the ATH-CK10, but refers shoppers to the ATH-CK100, at a whopping 212 AUD premium. Despite the fact that they dont actually have any stock of the CK10, their listing still comes up on shopbot and other 'price comparison' sites - nothing like a little bait-and-switch.

Which IEM?



Sounds like the GR07. Your music will finally have mids lol.

rolleyes.gif not funny. I like my TF10.

GR07 might be too flat, neutral and balanced.

I might go back to the FXT90.

More than a few who own both GR07 and FXT90, prefer and spend more time with FXT90.

 

Does W4 have similar characteristics as TF10 but with less quantity bass with forward mids?

I owned both, and I prefer the GR07 to the TF10 by a fair margin but that may be be my music tastes. I see a lot of people saying the GR07 is too flat or boring, but I know that it has as much bass as the TF10, with more quantity and quality sub-bass. Also, the timbre of the GR07 is a country mile ahead of the TF10. Instrument separation and speed are also about the same, with the GR07 having better imaging and soundstaging.

 

500!

And dynamic range on the GR07 vs TF10?

The TF10 has the GR07 slightly beat there at lower volumes. At my listening levels there is no difference. Read joker's review of them.

MTPC -- it has better bass too, and much better mid, though I think TF10 has better treble

post #5559 of 16802

 

Hmmm... EX600 outer-soundspace, FXC51 inner-soundspace, TF10 bass, RE262 mids, Ety ER-4 treble, CK10 imaging, K2 SP note decay, RE272 note quality.

 

 

Why look...... it's a flying salmon... with the head of a cat!

Hey olear, Been Pming you here and there, honestly, the W4 is more balanced than the GR07 W4 is Ruler flat. The GR07's push the mids forward, and are not as bright as the JVC. If I can suggest, try a pair of GR07. I personally would take the GR07's over the W4, and I Love Westones

This is MEELEC's Flagship Headphones/IEM. It is said to have accuracy and fidelity of a studio monitor and it has great extension in bass and good punch in bass as well.

 

Also, it has a BA Driver.

A161 housing looks just like the SBA-03.. very interested to hear how it sounds..

post #5564 of 16802

I take it the A161 just has a single BA.

     Yes, I would've said Dual BA if there were two.
