Brief question about Shure E2C balance

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

How "flat" are the Shure E2C? I've seen a lot of reviews claiming that the E2C are "flat" and I would say the bass is almost overpowering.

To my ears, the Shure E2Cs are relatively flat to, say, the UE Metro.Fi 2s/200s. Although its bass is relatively more powerful than its sibling, the Shure SE110 (which has already been replaced by the SE115), it's still too anemic when compared to other entry-level IEMs. Plus, it suffers to a somewhat tunnelish sound signature that I've found in almost every Shure IEM with the exception of the SE530s.

 

Hope that helps.

could you explain this "tunnelish" sonic signature?

It's been a while since my E2Cs were functional but I don't remember any overpowering bass.  Assuming I'm not misremembering, I'd say its a few hairs above neutral.  IEMs are very sensitive to fit however, so you may be getting some kind of odd resonance because of you ear canal shape, tips, and a million other factors.
