Those who bought from overseas and send their impressions from US, which shipping company they used and how much they paid?

 

I don't have too much money to spend for shipping.

 

 

 

Also, if anyone know good audiologist in Manhattan, New York?

 

Thanks

 

      I do! Park76 Audiologist. 25 Years of Excellent service. :D

I'm really starting to focus on getting either the Heir 3.A or 4.A. Time to start saving at least $600.

You could also try a MEElec A161P (reviewed as the Fischer SBA-03 here) - it's got more bass and slightly more subdued highs than your average Ety but still performs similarly overall.

 

 

Thanks for your thoughts Joker. I've done a bit more reading on the ones you've mentioned, but I get the feeling that unless I spring for something like the RE272 I'm going to get a different but not necessarily better overall sound. Maybe I should give the q-jays a try with some other tips while saving and looking out for a used RE272. Do you have suggestions on what tips to try with the q-jays? I have a hard time figuring out what's compatible because manufacturers never list it specifically.

I just want to thank you, Joker for your suggestions and for this thread. Despite your cautioning against it (I'm not too fond of bass heavy sets), I went for the GR02 Bass Edition. I have to say that you are spot on in your advice and reviews. They are extremely nice phones, great sound quality, but there is a bit more bass than I would have liked. I switched my iPod eq to "Bass Reducer" and couldn't be happier. They sound balanced and analytical and not at all lean. Additionally, the GR02 can be had even cheaper from Lend Me Ur Ears without the Sony Hybrid style tips. I seem to have very finicky ears, nothing fits my left ear. I think that my inner canal is very narrow and my outer ear is very wide, so few tips fit well, including bi-flanges. On a lark, I placed an order with Meelec. I got some of their "Balanced Sound" tips, small triple flanges, over ear loops and a case. Everything they sell is reasonably priced and very well made. I couldn't get the triple flanges to fit, but the "Balanced Sound" bi-flanges are incredible! They use a much softer, thinner silicone that isolates incredibly well and is extra comfy! Do they balance the sound of the GR02? Not really, but boy are they comfortable! I found that by installing the GR02s upside down, with or without over-ear-guides, they insert deeper and the comfort is incredible!

 

Anyway, those are my thoughts, somewhat non sequitur, but I wanted to share.

Can anyone help me with choosing between the meelec m9 and the jvc fx101
post #7687 of 16803

Do you think the Beyer DTX 101 IE has excessive bass. Does the bass make the rest of the track less clear. I'm might get them so i'm asking.

post #7688 of 16803

Do the DTX 101 IE need an amp???

post #7689 of 16803

no the dtx is not the most bassy iem , but its big , it dont need any amp , why you dont settle with the cc51 , good bass , nice clarity , not the most awesome highs , really nice mid , dtx for me are not value . and it dont need any amp .
 

post #7690 of 16803

havent heard the jvc , but the m9 are really awesome , big bass , and good clarity for just $18 .

post #7691 of 16803

That's good for me, I don't want to use an amp with my headphones

Bass is good quality. It's V shaped, midrange is recessed. A fun IEM to listen to. I'd probably get one if given the chance.

 

Isolation depend on your ear canal size, nozzle diameter is 6mm. It is a vented IEM.

post #7695 of 16803

nice isolation , good bass , slightly v shaped , buy the dtx is a big V . there is nothing in 6mm diameter , the bigger tips fit really awesome , the mid ear tips are not bad at all . but one trouble , no other tip will fit . if bass you need , then try the ue 400 and xb41ex .
