Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 499

About the Amazon GR02, here's the link:

http://www.amazon.com/VSONIC-Silver-Earphones-Earbuds-iPhones/dp/B005EM9KRI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341786697&sr=8-1&keywords=vsonic+gr02

 

Was available yesterday with 3 left. Must've been bought out, it's hot goods. regular_smile%20.gif

Lendmeurears is probably the closest to what I'd call "authorized seller" of VSonic IEMs on ebay.

The most natural response could be a bit V-shaped when measured on an uncompensated measurement head. The manufacturer should aim either for free field (open air) or diffuse field (room) response. Some more info: http://www.head-acoustics.de/downloads/eng/application_notes/Equalization_brochure.pdf

 

This doesn't contain "perceived bass" compensation, which typically should be ~6 dB/octave with 0 dB at 100 Hz, regardless of the mode of equalization - typically heard in low bass notes, slap bass and kick drums, but can be there in organ music and synthetic bass. It's even hard to measure those ranges. I'd say <= 35 Hz for the knee frequency of the rolloff is acceptable, anything other than this will have noticeably rolled off bass in some pieces..

 

It's easier to make a diffuse field sounding IEM, just because most IEMs have limitations at both ends of the spectrum... unless you count (properly designed) DDMs and multiple BA.

Single driver designs attempting free field sound tend to lack the bass and are somewhat rolled off in the highest end regardless. (Examples: ER-4S, RE272, CK10.)

Even diffuse field attempts tend to have some highest end rolloff or annoying resonances. The true art involves placing these likely inevitable resonances so that the user is not annoyed and the sound isn't too unnatural.

    safe bets are , soundmagic e30 , meelec , cw31 , cc51 , ultimat ears 500/400 , you need bass , and these have some good bass and nice clarity . take the ue 400/500 for bigger bass , cc51 for a really nice balance . all of them are under $75 .

   see if you can find , spider real voice , hi-sound crystal , vsonic gr06 .

I am currently looking at the Shure SE215 as they are only $95 here on eBay in Australia and I heard they have really good bass. A lot of my music is bass or acoustic oriented but I also was an IEM that won't fall out of my ears whilst running/exercising.

post #7475 of 16802

this may not have awesome sound quality , but the cx 680 from sennheiser are really nice for running and exercising . se215 is good too .

try a sports certified earphone . which are from philips , panasonic , meelec . i dont use any thing while running or exercising so its difficult to suggest .

I've had a bad impression of SE215s since listening to them beside the TDK BA200s back when I was deciding between them..

I listen to mainly electronica styles of music as well as rock/pop and a bit of acoustic and RnB. I am not sure however what type of earphone to get.

I live in Australia so I would prefer it if the product could be found somewhere here because of lot of them aren't. My budget is around $100 AUD but if I have to I can go over but wouldn't prefer it.

 

Thanks so much for all your help on these forums as I've gained a lot of knowledge by reading through everything here!

 

Any chance an EPH-100 is in budget? Otherwise the Shure SE215 should be okay for a warmer sound with enhanced bass. Not sure what other brands might be to you available locally.

Have you tried it on your computer yet?

post #7481 of 16802

yess . i have tried .
 

post #7482 of 16802

How does it sound?  Did you try customizing the high frequency filters to your own ear?

 

Please post your reply in the SHE3580 thread

Joker some days before i commented about the gr07 highs and you replied to me. You mentioned that the fxt90 have quite detailed nature and sparke. You think they will satisfy my need for more micro detailed over from the gr07?

post #7484 of 16802

Thanks ljokerl for answering that the eQ5 is less peaky than the GR07 couple days back.

Sorry for going from memory (I used to have the fxt90). But just in terms of treble micro detail, a good BA such as the sm3 performs better than fxt90 and just slaughters the gr07, though the gr07 and fxt90 have other better traits IMO.

EPH-100 gets way out of budget for me as it gets to around $170-180 when shipped from America and I'm trying to stay as close to $100 as possible. The Etymotic HF2 and the Xcape IE are only about $130 but I'm not overly sure about it. Most of my music is bass oriented but I also like good mids and highs in my trance/dnb/house music. In Australia I'm mainly looking at stores like addictedtoaudio.com.au headphones.com.au jaben.com.au and lendmeurears.com 

 

If you want to see the types of music I listen to mainly search up Monstercatmedia on YouTube. Thanks everyone for your help!
