Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 466

im considering upgrade from my Brainwavz Beta V2 and Brainwavz m1, with m1 really enjoyed their mids, but with beta i enjoyed their tighter bass and sparkling highs(althrough sometimes splashy) plus their soundstage beats m1. for me m1 trebel was too dark, beta's bass is the best for me right now, only trebel while sparkly, still sometimes too splashy(not as clean as B2<-i heard/audition this awesome IEm with their super clean treble), so any suggestion?  Budget around $150 maximum at the moment....

Hello

i have a question regarding Over-the-Ear IEM setup.

i have a pair of Klipsch S4 and id America Spark.

the S4's have this little plastic thingy on the wires that keeps

them snug in the back of the neck, therefore i can understand using these

phones over-the-ear (though i can't find it comfortable because when i turn my head

the wire is being stretched and forcing the phone out of my ear)

my question is about phones like the id America Spark.

Joker says theyre good for over-the-ear setup, but when i try this,

the wires around my ear just don't hold in place and they pop out quickly

(which looks and feels really silly)

so...it just don't hold in place this way...

how do you actually do it? :|

thanks

FXT90 IMO. Has rich, forward mids, plenty of bass, and good treble sparkle without overstepping it. GR07 can be a touch hot on the treble and the mids are distant compared to the M1 and the EPH-100 doesn't have a whole lot of treble sparkle.

The weight of the cable is enough to keep the Spark tucked in behind my ears. Plus I think the cable breaks in over time if you keep wearing it that way. If you need an aid MEElec cable guides work pretty well and don't cost a whole lot.

Well they don't sound exactly the same but the MG7 is a very good dynamic driver IEM with the most sub-bass around and it has the best bass texture also imo and the mids and highs sound really nice with a monitor type sound signature. You can get them at atrio.me and with the discount code ProgCost50% they're only $109 shipped. I love mine and think they sound better than my FXT90 as well as the other bass heavy IEM getting a lot of hype in the CKS77 (I've listen to them for a good 3 hours or so).

EPH-100?

I was wondering what is the best headphone under $150 for listening to rap music on my iPod? I have no amp and i won't be buying one either so I want a headphone that sounds great out of the box. Any suggestions? Price is not fixed, I can go up to maybe $170-$180 but I would really like to keep it under that $150 mark.

The Atrio MG7 for sure, its bass is just plain sick and the mids and highs are very nice as well.  They're on sale at atrio.me for $109 shipped when you use the discount code CostProg50%.

This thread is amazing.

post #6989 of 16803

id also recomend audio technica cks77.  Sub bass is almost equal to the mg7, but the mid bass is great and the overall gives a more fun sound imo where atrio is more moniter like in the mids and highs.  I sold my mg7 for the cks77 and do not regret it at all.  (and i listen to rap and r-n-b mainly with a lil aerosmith or journey to round things out).  $90 box version shipped from japan or $55 factory rejects from hong kong, which sound same after being well burned in.  Also  couple pair in trade section for roughly $70.  Plus fit is way better in my opinion

Joker i thank you so much for the continuous support and advice......

 

just wanted to share that i purchased these:

http://dx.com/in-ear-stereo-earphones-with-removable-ear-hooks-3-5mm-13887

just for the ear-hooks \ cable guides.... to use with my id America Spark :)

hopefully they're of nice quality...turned out much cheaper than

ordering the stand-alone cable guides from Meelectronics (expansive delivery)
