Sorry, my bad. But still shipping and custom will shoot the price to about $70 so i would rather like stay with brainwavz or soundmagic.

You won't be charged customs for everything, it's a matter of luck. I've bought twice from Lendmeurears (PR401, GR07), but was not charged duty. You are better off taking a chance.

I will prefer to buy one locally, tell me if it's available in india.

Or else which would be best b/w pro alpha, m1, e30.

Hi all, looking for a bit of advice.  Want to buy some IEMs for a friend - budget circa $50.  Need to be either fairly shallow insertion or, if deep insertion, something as comfortable as the Klipsch Image X10 (he recently lost these, and he liked them, but I think even with how small and comfortable those are he didn't particularly like sticking something deep in his ears).  Would prefer at least average isolation, and of course the best sound quality possible given the other constraints.  Music is probably a mix of rock and more modern pop / hip-hop.  I thought I was set on the Xears TD-III v2 but they don't seem to be on Xears' website anymore.  Would the id America Spark be a good choice?  Of course open to other ideas.

 

Thanks!

theres the new TD4 of Xears

seems to be the same thing or very similiar

Hey Joker :)

 

What advantages do you personally feel that the HisoundAudio Crystal has over the Shure SE215? If any, what are it's outright technical advantages?

I don't think I'll be comfortable wearing the GR01 over-the-ear... but perhaps I could try it

Without losing money, no, but maybe if I lower the price 10-20$ some people will be interested....

 

EDIT: Recieved my MC5 today, bass is adequate, not really lacking.... will the GR01 have less or more bass than the MC5?

I'm really uncomfortable using the triple-flange though... my ears hurt... is this normal for first-time users? Will I get used to it?

Or should I just cut it to make it a bi-flange tips

I'm using the small ones... 


Similar bass impact with a slight advantage to the GR01 but the GR01 definitely has better depth and texture. It is more detailed than the GR07 but again the margin is tiny. Transparency is a wash - the GR01 is a little too smooth to compete with a DBA-02 mkII or Ety ER4S there.

The UE700 is a good IEM, not that many of things can be considered a true 'upgrade' from it. What are you looking to improve on?

I litsen to mostly all types of genres but more rock, hip hop and RnB.

Hope someone will help.

Thanks in advance


Given no more information, probably the ProAlpha - it's a nice east-going sound. If you want heavy bass you could also consider the E10 or Dunu Trident.

The TD4 has indeed replaced the TD-III v2. The Spark is a good choice at the current price, it's happy with a moderately shallow seal but of course isolation is proportional to how deep you fit them. Soundmagic's E10 might be another option.

Mostly the treble not being sub-par. The Crystal is also more revealing and transparent than the SE215.

Which of those three would be your choice?  The TD4 is only slightly more expensive than the Spark, and it sounds like it's more comfortable, more isolating and sounds better - is it also happy with a shallower seal?  Any other pairs to consider?

 

Thanks for all the help!

i broke it , believe me its not strong , the paint faded , inspite of going for another ( i have given it to the service center they will repair the cable with charges ) ue 700 i need some thing different , what about the fischer audio dba-2 , the highs were a bit harsh too ( im just 10 years into music it takes perhaps more to love highs ) . i like dark signature not like the sony , some thing like ue but not eu again ( if triple fi prices come down ) , i may consider the re0 or re-zeros . but i have options here . i need help in headphones more , which should have mids and bass and okay highs , my hd 280 ( 3 years old ) i broke the cable . i got a hd 449 but thats not what i want , i want some thing better and closed .

post #6432 of 16803

why not try the soundmagic e30 , under the budget and good for what you mentioned , not bass heavy but will do the job . or in $75 bracket , you can try the meelecs , ecci , i have a cc51 that lacks some creeping highs ( awesome value ) , my friends has a a151 that lacks bass but the design is bomb proof . the cable the housing all are really strong . i will say ask him-her to invest in if you dont want to gift it purely with your love intact ( please dont mind ) , if just a friend why not he invest some $50 more and get a ue 700 or re-0 / re-zero ( both the head direct re are under $80 and are awesome value ) .

post #6433 of 16803

post #6434 of 16803

Suman134, if you're in China, I suggest strongly you try the VSonic GR01 or GR07... as it is easier and cheaper to get here in their own country

GR01's sound signature will really be similar to the UE700, being they have the same TWFK drivers, although from Joker's review, the GR01 is less bright, toned-down treble.... 

post #6435 of 16803

hey joker, it seems FA eterna v1 ad consonance are solt out everywhere here

MEE CC51 and A151 don't seem would please him in bass quantity, and it seems he wants his IEM more above 50$, so E10 is a no.

 

how's Brainwavz M2's bass compared to eterna and consonance?

 

and how do you think about sunrise xcape impressive edition?
