I don't think I'll ever really be able to settle with them.

Plus, I hear Monster is replacing tributes with trumpets... although I hate the fact that my strain reliefs are broken (man it just feels bad), I dare not risk getting trumpets through warranty.


I strongly suggest you read the thread about the MDR-7550, they are much more mid forward than the EX600/1000 series which from the sounds of it is right up your alley. I have the FXT90 now and while I like it, the treble of the MDR-7550 is just superior as is the overall signature. Not sure where you stand in regards to the comfort of the EX1000 comfort wise but personally I love the comfort of the MDR-7550. Really the only flaw they have for me is wind noise outside and more often than  not I live with that noise than use another IEM.

     If you like neutrality and high amounts of detail, then the A161. If you like lots of Sub-Bass with a balanced sound signature, then the Atrio MG7.

Those really won't sound anything alike so I think you need to figure out what you're after first.

Can you recommend me the most romantical and emotional iem up to 500Dollar. I dont need the most neutral/analytical sound.

Hi guys,

 I've been wanting to buy another pair of IEM's for a while now. At the moment I use my Shure SE215''s the most, mainly because its very isolating and the ever so slightly emphasized bass overcomes the rumble of the bus so it's very good for that purpose. But I was hoping to buy another pair for when I'm not the move. They'll be used mainly in quite environments so the isolation isn't as important however it would be nice. 

 

 The things I like about the sound from my pair of Shure's is the bass, the bass quantity its punchy and has a strong impact to it too. But I am getting bored of the mids and the recessed highs, although I don't want an IEM that would cause fatigue. That being said I did like the JVC/Victor FX-300's even though they had an incredibly sparkly and somewhat boosted treble.

 

 My budget at the moment is between £180-290 although I wouldn't mind stretching it a little. The IEM's I've been looking into are the following

 

Shure SE425, SE 535

Ultimate Ears Triple. fi 10

Westone UM2, UM3x, W3

 

I was wondering which of these earphones would suit me best. I have read a lot of reviews about most of these earphones however they usually rely on comparisons quite heavily which is hard to relate to being relatively new to the market, well I've been buying a slew of £30 earphones for about two years now but I only got into trying to find a better sound about half a year ago.

 

*the primary source would be a J3, and a laptop with a discrete sound card and a computer with an external sound card.

*the range of music I listen to is so varied, classical to heavy metal to rap such that an overall performer would be only be suitable

You should probably define what those words mean to you.

If you like the bass of your SE215s but want some treble sparkle why not try a JVC FXT90? Granted I am not familiar with the SE425 or UM2 but the FXT90 competes rather well against the higher-end Shures and Westones. The W3 and TF10 both have plentiful bass and good sparkle but the mids might sound a little scooped compared to the SE215.

Not sure, I am not familiar with the filter revisions of the DBAs. The MK2 has similar-diameter nozzles and filters that are recessed.

Can't believe your backlog hasn't shrunk one-bit.....  

 

Newcomers, this is a good place for those simple questions, joker answers them very well.

     It sure is. This is the first thread I went to as a guest.

Updated accessory score for the Alclairs - apparently they (and Alclair's other triple-driver models) now come with a Pelican case and not the standard clamshell I received months ago.

Thanks.. and that makes two of us. If only all manufacturers would cease releasing new products; I could finally have a well-deserved break...

Not to add to your never ending backlog, but I would find a review of the ATH CKM500 verrrry interesting in comparison to your JVC FXT90 review
post #7079 of 16802

impressive review! i'm looking to buy my first decent pair of in-ear headphones (~$100) and wondering if you have advice for what i'm looking for. i plan to use them on the go, trains, buses, streets, possibly bike, so isolation and microphonics are things to consider. i listen to a variety of music (jazz, rock, hiphop, folk, some electronic, dubstep and classical), so ideally the headphones would be good for a broad range of music. i will mostly use them from an iphone or laptop, preferably with a headset/remote. i've been looking at etymotics hf3 (but wonder if they will sound too harsh with not enough low-end), shure se215 (though the headset add-on adds some $$), brainwavz, and i like the idea of vsonics, jvc ha-fxt90, or re-0 but those don't seem to be available with a built-in headset. are there any that i've missed that i should consider more strongly given what i'm after? not having used any of these, does one seem to come out ahead? thanks in advance!

After months of searching for new earphones, I've ended up with the jvc fx40 which I see joker have already listed them on the in progress list, I am really impressed, especially for their price.
