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?


I your in the EU frogbeats have some eterna rev 1s in stock!

Thanks for all the help!



It's not going to be more isolating if you're wearing it with a shallow seal. The only real reservation I have about Xears products is long-term durability. Otherwise the TD4 should be a great option.

I've never heard the HD280 so you're probably better off starting a separate thread with that question since I can't make proper comparisons to it. There are Sonys out there with darker signatures - the ZX700 for example.

The M2 has less bass than consonance/Eterna but a bit more than CC51. It's a good all-rounder.

 

I wrote a separate Xcape IE review - you can probably find it using forum search. It's a great-sounding set but not bassier than the M2. Build quality is questionable.

 

Any chance you can get an id America Spark? It sounds a lot like the Consonance. Otherwise you can maybe look at some of the Xears stuff

just one more help as my cx 400 II are dieing on me too , what about the eterna v2 ? are they par with the older one ?

post #6441 of 16802

Hey joker, I'm wondering if you had had your hands on some GR06 yet. Found a few threads on it and curious on your thoughts of it, since they are less than $70.

post #6442 of 16802

You have to try the ckm77 joker, you'll be surprised at how they sound.

+1
interesting to here your opinion on them

post #6444 of 16802

Is anyone aware of any decent IEMs in the £50-£60 (roughly $75-$100) with an asymmetric cable length so that it can be looped around the back of the head like the CX300? It's for a friend that really hates the typical orientation, sound quality is obviously important but there's no major preference in terms of signature. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Xears. not all of them

I believe joker put it as j-cable in his reviews here. Maybe that could speed up your search here.

The review in this thread is actually based on the rev2 Eterna but I compared it to the rev1 in the last paragraph.

Yes, I have a GR06. Everything I have on hand but haven't posted reviews of yet is listed on the front page of this thread, under the table.

 

I have been too busy with the GR01 to get to the GR06 but I have previously said that I was quite impressed with it out of the box. It didn't seem to have the bass depth of the GR07 (a little more oriented towards mid-bass than sub-bass) and isn't quite as clean and detailed but for being 1/3 the price it's remarkably capable. I wouldn't be surprised if it's ends up in the SE215-Hisound crystal range.

You can just search the front page of this thread for "j-cord". As kanuka said some Xears models are j-corded - I would suggest sending them an email and asking which of the current lineup has asymmetric cabling. There are some Koss and Sony (e.g. EX300, EX500) models that use j-cords as well.

I got the xears xe200pro about a month ago it has cloth covered j-cord
the price also makes you happy

 Joker, I finally decided to get a GR07, as it really receives a lot of praise from many high-regarded head-fier's such as you and ClieOS

I just wanted to thank you for your time and help explaining to me about everything wink.gif
