thats why i said nearly , but by the way , i have a trouble , i got cc51p , i wonder if xba-1 and ue 600 worth a fight , i got all at nealy $80 each , cc51 is awesome no doubt , but i just wonder if these two worth a go . what happen when i get money i just cant help it , it gets on my head , got to spend it , and spend it nice . or it will get blown .
I only heard the XBA-1 briefly. It seemed good, I liked the signature better than that of the XBA-04, but not sure where it would rate following proper long-term listening tests.
I'm loving the MEElectronics M6. It's so cheap yet it fantastic for the price. Coming from higher end stuff the mids are a little muffled, but overall its an excellent and durable iem for the price. The bass is very nice also, sounds more natural and can feel more air movement than BA style bass.
I still have my original red one with copper memory wire . Terrible cable noise on that old thing but it sounds great.
Only the J3. I wasn't overly impressed with it.
Thanks. The EX1000 has that headphone-like out-of-the-head presentation that's so different from most IEMs out there. The K3003 is more intimate though it has excellent depth and width still. Signature-wise the K3003 has more bass (esp. mid-bass), similar midrange presence, and smoother lower treble (where the EX1000 has some emphasis). I also thought the K3003 had very good extension whereas the EX1000 didn't impress me in that regard.
Can't think of anything I'd rather listen to for $79 but it's not quite as far ahead of the competition as it once was.
