Saves money..I think not :P I think this thread makes wallet lighter for the most part than heavier with some exceptions of course. I think for the most part my wallet is safe when reading the first page on this thread.

Well, the forum is like a torrential flood.  Jokers thread is like shoveling dirt into the Mississippi.  At least it's trying.

Yep, rawrster is probably this thread's greatest benefactor . Should be getting it soon.

Thanks . SM3 will probably take a little while as I have to re-scale my internal rating system for it

Yes, if I managed to save someone a couple of bucks on not buying a pile of garbage like the Grado iGi, I'll consider that a resounding success. And of course brining good but lesser-known models to view is always satisfying.

post #965 of 16803

That's a good point. This thread does make some lesser known models (esp to those who are not regular head-fi members such as Sound Magic and other small companies) better known. One of my favorite was the PL30 before I gave that away and I would have never known about it if I wasn't a head-fi member. I imagine most just looking for a good budget earphone would know a bit less about the market than I do.

This thread is actually both a wallet thinner as well as a wallet saver. Because of joker's reviews, I have too many IEMs, but they all vary in signature. And, I would not own something like a Xears TD-100 if it's not been for the relative SQ rating here. I looked past threads discussing Playaz models many times before that. It's a great resource for someone like me who cannot audition / loan IEMs .

Where can you buy the "UE Single-flange" tips that you mention? I searched around but I couldn't find any UE tips.

 

Also looking forward to the MC5 review!

Haha now that does sound interesting! Does this mean you are liking what you are hearing? biggrin.gif

 

PS: I'll PM you about you reviewing my RE-262s.

Joker is one lucky guy. Getting to review and test all those amazing IEMs. Thanks for sharing your thoughts to the community.

UE is just shorthand for Ultimate Ears. When I say 'UE Single-Flange' I mean these 'squared-off' silicone tips, not the rounded clear tips that they are using now:

It seems that Logitech is trying to phase out replacement silicone cushions and instead force people to buy Complys, though. Best place to buy these particular tips would probably be on the sale forum here.

You say lucky, I say stark raving mad . Glad the thread was useful though.

Hi...
I'm looking to find an IEM to pair up with my blackberry, right now I'm using the sony ex-300...

I am almost about to jump the gun with the Head-direct RE-0 but looking at the 64ohm made me think again, so i think posting a question here is the wisest thing to do...

Joker mention that "the high impedance is deceiving" but I'm still not sure if this applies when pairing them up with blackberry...
It also made me think should I  just save up and go for the RE-ZERO which only use 16ohm, but with the price tag $110 in ebay... Not too great...

Anyone has experience pairing re-0/zero with blackberry?
or does anyone has experience pairing an IEM with blackberry... My budget is around $90...

Cheers everybody...

The Thinksound TS02 will be one to consider especially since it has a mic. It's a nice all-rounder that doesn't have a big glaring weakness imo.

post #973 of 16803

Loaners are not always a good thing. The more expensive ones tempt you into buying them if you like it enough :P I almost bought some of the earphones that have been loaned out to me.,

 

I've tried out my TS02+mic with a blackberry and it works well..it was only for testing purposes however as I like the sound of my J3 much better.

post #974 of 16803

Ok, thanks joker. I knew what UE meant, but I couldn't find anywhere to buy them. I'll have a look at the sales forum.

post #975 of 16803

Goddamn. ljokerl - you've just pushed me over the edge in grabbing some Monster Turbine Pro Miles Davis Tributes.

 

I'm out of cash.
