Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 400

post #5986 of 16803

Great review! I actually bought two MP8320s, gave one away as a gift as part of a "secret Santa" thing, to someone in a band who listens to music 7 hours a day. And to this day she's still using bundled earbuds.angry_face.gif

 

What would be the most appropriate way to choke her?

Hehe, I just spent the evening listening to the 8320s while working on a paper and man, I'm still flabbergasted as to how these can possibly be sold for only $7.

Out of the vsonics GR07 and the Sony MDR-EX600... Which would be better for pop,Rock, punk rock and drum and bass? Longevity of the IEM also matters a lot

Is the Sony MDR-EX600 good for EDM?

If you wanted, you could get an aftermarket pair of earbuds. The familiar form factor would make the switch easier and the superior sound quality might become apparent over time. That's how I got started - bought a set of KSC75s on a whim and noticed over time that I gravitated towards them over all of my other headphones (for reasons I didn't understand at first)

It's not the manufacturing costs that make dynamic-driver earphones expensive so I guess an 8320 of some sort was bound to happen sooner or later.

Probably the GR07, definitely prefer it for rock over the EX600. Don't think either is significantly more durable but I only own the GR07;

As good as a reasonably balanced-sounding in-ear can be IMO but you might be better off asking someone who listens primarily to EDM.

Because there has been some review on amazon complaining about the stiff cable and it breaking easily , also turning green should I be worried about this?

ljokerl, any plans to review the yamaha eph-100? maybe compare it against the GR07 which it seems to be dethroning in terms of best sound for under $200.

Could you suggest any IEM's that sounds good in both genre that only costs $50-70?

Having multiple friends who make a living as musicians, a girlfriend who graduated from one of the most prestigious music schools in the world, and every day exposure to aspiring professional musicians, I have noticed that many of them prefer "crappy" headphones, and when prodded, a number of them have responded that it is because they want to know what their music will sound like to their audience.

 

My girlfriend, a classically trained vocalist, is actually a really big fan of my MS400. Vocals on MS400 = love bigsmile_face.gif

At the moment the fxt90 is  my  preferred iem.
 
If he had a greater sub bass and a slightly greater articulation, i could not ask for more.
 
What do you prefer for the JVC compared to Yammy?

Thanks for your favorable review on the MP8320..I knew one day these would be on the map. Thanks to all the guys on the Mp8320 thread that help get these noticed. Love them Mp8320s.

I wouldn't put too much stock in the 1-star Amazon reviews, as they seem to be mostly flame posts. I've only heard of one case of someone's GR07s breaking, and that was the old model, which has since been replaced with an updated model with a better cable. My cables have turned green, but no one has reported any change in sound because of it, and I actually think it looks kind of classy, though that could just be me rationalizing. tongue.gif

The fxt90 has a wider soundstage and more importantly, to me, it has much better instrument realism. The fxt90 timbre and musicality are what make it special.

I have been enjoying my FXT90s for a couple months now - the best earphones I've heard, but then again I haven't heard an awful lot.  I keep getting the itch to try the GR07s - anyone want to push me to either of them?  Is the isolation any better on the Vsonics?  I listen mostly to classic rock (Dire Straits, Pink Floyd), metal (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden) and heavy metal (Iced Earth, Metallica).  Thanks!

Agree completely.
 
 I think with the JVC is a total immersion. To raise the volume:)  Somehow this can be fatiguing.
 
 No intention to have lost it. 
 
 I thought the Yamaha EPH-100 for use on the road, in the hope that these new micro-drivers will also keep something positive.

Yamaha EPH-100 should have better isolation, but wasn't this demand, and in any case I haven't heard.:)
