My Turbines right side flexes so bad if I crank them past a certain volume it pops everytime, and always when inserting them to a point the sound goes muffled. I either then need to lower the volume or re-seat them. I think they had a hard life. rolleyes.gif

I notice that driver flex occurs with silicone, but never with the foam tips. on both the Turbines and the UE500.

I think foam may allow the drivers to breath a touch.

Maybe someday; haven't made much of an effort to get one so far.

So I was wondering if you have anything in mind that has a soundstage like the Sony (or close to it) with the sound signature of the JVC FXT90, with a little bit more bass extension and/or less harsh highs. Budget not more than $200 if it can be helped.

 

EDIT: clarification.

 

The 7550, like the EX600 and EX1000, has less pronounced bass compared to an FXT90. For various reasons what you're looking for doesn't exist in that price range as far as I know - the JVC FX500, for example, is more harsh than the FXT90 and the GR07 doesn't sound as open as the Sonys and doesn't really share the more v-shaped sound of the JVCs. I think you'll have to give up on one of your requirements or cough up for an FX700.

It's that rare?! blink.gif

 

How about if I put less emphasis on looking for similar soundstage and more on the refinement I'm looking for from the FXT90? (more bass extension, less harsh highs, almost the same mild U-shape). I'll still look into the FX700 still though, since it's still a choice.

Congrats, Joker. Writing 250 reviews sure is something, and it's a huge contribution to the community.

Is there anything better than the GR02 Bass Edition when it comes to sub 50 USDs, bassy in ears?

post #7960 of 16803

Joker, will u be doing a review of Sennheiser IE80? Kinda looking forward to that review! :) 

 

Also, Thanks for the detailed review on the wide range of headphones. Really helpful to newbies like me :D

Still no perfect fit IMO. You might like the EPH-100 better than the FXT90 since it has a little less treble energy and more bass response. It's also less forward than the JVCs, which helps with soundstaging.

Not that I can think of, unless you require ridiculous levels of bass or are sensitive to treble unevenness.

Sorry, no plans for an IE80 review at this time but maybe in the future.

An MH334 was gifted to me by the community but unfortunately life has been getting in the way of my posting its full review. It's something I've been working on (on and off) for months. Hopefully it'll be finished and posted next month.

Ahh, that's what I suspected months ago. Still, thanks for all your help so far. It's remedied for now with EQ while using the 7550, but that's not a permanent set up.
