Bunch of jokesters...

 

For the record I quite like the finish of the Astrotecs - it's non-reflective (much like Twiki) and the shell is small enough that it doesn't look gaudy.

Taobao-buying-agent.com  or Bigbarginsonline.com  Bigbarginonline doesn't list them on their ebay page but if you email him he'll send you one. Prices are $35 for silver or $38.50 for a color version, That includes shipping. Also Lend Me UR Ears for $43 for silver, not sure if they have colors?

the red looks great isn't it but i like red so im biased biggrin.gif

 

i shop in taobao from some local agent in a local forum i dwell everyday, cheaper than buying from lendmeurears because of the exchange rate and i can buy other stuff as well from taobao. Shipping is around RM12 per kg which is roughly 4USD all the way from china to me.

 

china company are making some cheap and cheerful iem nowdays wink.gif

I bought red astrotec and it looks good but the best thing is the price, for only 168 yuan(26usd), you can have an IEM as good as meelectronics a151.smily_headphones1.gif

where did you buy it? can you give the link

 

and can the astrotec be worn over the ear??

post #7029 of 16802

Joker, do you think i will have a fit problem with the Radius DDMs ? not sure bout my ear canal size, whether its big or small, but i do have some examples to give u a picture bout my canal size...

using the Brainwavz m1, i only can hav a good seal/confortable with the smallest single flange tip. the medium n large are too big for me. The double flange is wearable but give almost no difference with the small tip regarding sonic sound quality, but less comfort.(all tips mention are stock tips)

using the Brainwavz Beta v2, same as above, smallest single flange tip(stock tip).

using Brainwavz B2, the smallest tip gave me best isolation and comfort and seal. Also stock tip. never had experience a triple flange yet.

Hey, thank you very much for this excellent topic! I go here every time I want to find out about an IEM or recommend to my friends :)

Say, at about 60$, which is the better IEM: VSonic GR06 or the MEElectronics A151? I listen to metal, rock, classic, jazz and abit pop, but I don't need a very heavy bass. Thanks :)

Yes, it is also my preferred way of wearing them as indicated by the boldface in the original review:

The DDM is pretty different from your IEMs in fit (the DDM2 is somewhat similar to the Beta, though). It doesn't have huge nozzles so the small tips should work for you - I'd be more concerned about the housing size and your outer ears, which is not an issue with any of your current earphones.

The GR06 has more bass and treble compared to the A151. I would say it is generally more balanced than the A151 but not as smooth - more akin to the CC51 in signature and performance but without the laid-back mids. For those who don't want a lot of bass I would almost say the A151 is a safer choice but you can see from the scores that I think the GR06 is generally a better earphone.

The largest that i have is currently the Beta's(v2), the housing size is ok, wearing it straight down with no problems, is the DDM gonna be bigger than it or its the same/almost as the size of my beta's?

So GR06 is the more balanced earphone? I'm looking for a balanced sound, I just don't want the bass overpowering, since I don't really need it :)

I currently have the Q350 so I'm looking for an upgrade. So you would say the VSonic GR06 is the better choice, also for my genres of choice?

Edit: Would you suggest me an other earphone altogether?

Joker, what do you think of the stock styrofoam eartips of the GR06? I find that it increase bass by a significant amount but i think the accuracy and and instrument seperation is lost there. Is this just my speculation? Correct me if I'm wrong please. And if so is there a foam tip that increases both bass and clarity? Comply foams maybe? Or monster gel foam? Or olive shures?

I'm so very glad I found this forum and this wonderful set of reviews.  Hat's off to those taking the time to gather such great information.  Question for you all, do many of you buy several IEM's, testing them and return the ones you don't like?  I've done this long ago (long long ago) and am back in need of new headphones and hoping to move into the IEM world from my earbuds.  My wife has the Klipsch S4's and I do not find them to my liking.  mid bass and low mid's seem muddy and the treble is harsh.  I still prefer my old and dying sony mdr-e848 earbuds.  Sure they have no isolation and lack a lot of clarity, but I do like the overall balance of sound.  I've read through the reviews several times on this site (which rocks) and beleive I have no chance of just magically picking the right set the first time.  I'm not even sure what category I prefer but do know I must stay below $100.

 

Are there any good sites that allow returns of IEM's?
