Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 455

post #6811 of 16802

Suman... i actually already ordered the Sparks... i have a Klipsch Image S4

pair but i just can't stand how far it goes into my ear canal :|

i read the Sparks aren't very shallow fitting either, but i hope i'll like'em.

i was having a hard time deciding between the Sparks and Visang r03...and then

the Sparks price went down to 36$ in Amazon and i went for it.

too bad the delivery to Israel is made by an Israeli company that charges

27$ just for that matter...but oh well! i'll be very unique here wearing these beauties :)

If you want detail, I think the BA's is what you would be looking for.

 

Something like the Westone 2's or 3's are a good/safe bet.

Let's see what Joker says :)

Hi guys,

 

I'm looking for a new earphone. I'm currently using the MEElectronics M6-BK-MEE. My budget is $50-$80 CAD. I'm from Canada and I need something I can get here. I notice there are some earphone that ships to Canada from Amazon but not all.

I want something with amazing bass that won't affect the rest of the spectrum. Something that remains well separated and defined. I will using it for the gym and in the office. I have the Denon D2000 for home use.

 

Music I listen to is mainly house. I sometimes listen to hip-hop and R&B.

Hard to beat the E10 for the price.

To me, the E10 beats several earphones priced $50 or more.  All I'm suggesting is that the E10 and E30 are amazing sounding iem's at a low price point.  I'd rather spend $35 and use the rest on something else then get a $80 earphone when there's such awesome competition at a lower cost.  I've had at least 70 earphones listed on this thread and the E10 and E30 stays in my stable.

Thanks for the suggestions. So the E10 and E30. Which one is better? E30 is like $5 more so it doesn't really matter to me. Only place I could find it was MP4nation. Couldn't get it to ship to Canada at the miccastore.

 

I was looking around and found the Klipsch Image S4 for $68 and the ship to Canada. Is that a good deal?

Also the Shure SE215-K on sale for $99 at Amazon.com looks like something I might be interested into. Is there a big difference jumping for a $40 E30 to $100 Shure SE215-K?

No. There are several iems that sound better than the S4, and cost less.

E10 has more bass and the rest of the spectrum is not lacking.  E30 is a little more balanced but generally they both sound quite similar. Never heard the S4 but I think it's bass heavy and from what I've read doesn't sound as good as the Soundmagics.  Price seems ok though.

This thread has been such a resource. I can't thank you enough.

 

Depends on how much bass you need - there are decidedly bass-heavy sets with good detail such as the JVC FX700//FX500 and Atrio MG7 as well as more balanced options (that are still not bass-light) - for example the VSonic GR07, Yamaha EPH-100, and Earsonics SM2.

It's rare for heavy bass not to affect the rest of the spectrum but if you're okay ordering internationally there's a number of choices depending on the exact signature you want - Fischer Eterna and Consonance, Xears TD-III, id America Spark, Soundmagic E10, etc.

the sparks are not bad , enjoy .

post #6823 of 16802

the main trouble with e30 is it lacks treble badly , at least what i felt , bass is good , mid takes 60% of the music . bass is 25-30% and high is 15-10 %  . cant say about e10 , but dont go for image s4 , inspite go for image s3 if kipsch is your liking , or try others , id spark as amitl went for is better then any sound magic in over all quality ( exclude the pl50 ) . or try as i said cc51 and a151 . there is a big difference between a $ 30-40 iem and $100 iem , but dont take the se-215 , its not that awesome when stacked against the re-zero , or sw-xcape , or the m4 , just go for vsonic gr06 its awesome for the price $65 . better then the se-215 .

Joker: I love my DBAs, they just have that fantastic treble and highs and airyness that puts even my FXT-90s to shame.  I love how the mids are just wonderfully in the middle, not forward nor recessed and their soundstage is perfect. I guess I really am a treblehead:) The FXT-90s just sound muddy and conjested to me, although I've seen so many positive reviews about it, from you, clieos, the appreciation thread and even i2ehan just rated the SQ 4/5, but the DBAs absolutely thrash them for me. Im looking to upgrade the DBAs( if its even possible). Are there any clear upgrades from them ( airy, forward and aggressive treble, detalied, mids , extremely fast bass, extended highs like them )? Or should I just reshell them? How do the re272s scale compared to them. Not interested in ER4s. Thanks!

I reshelled my DBA nearly a year ago & have been very happy with them.  As far as a (universal IEM) upgrade, the Audio Technica CK10 might be a good option (not sure if it's an outright 'upgrade' or more of a sidegrade with different tuning of the TWFK drivers, though).  The CK10 will certainly feed your treble fetish.

 

As far as customs, average_joe's breathtaking custom IEM review threads should help you find what you're looking for.
