Is there any audio engineer here that uses the UE RM for mixing?
If there is how well are these IEM compared to real high end monitor speakers like ATC?
How does it compare to high end headphones like Sennheiser HD 650 or close can denon AH D7000?
When I do mixing on different platform 1 problem I face is soundstage. If a platform with narrow soundstage and I bring it to a platform with big soundstage my rhythm guitars which I usually pan left and right to the extreme usually kind of disappears. So far I've not heard an IEM with soundstage as wide as high end monitor speakers or high end headphones. I've tried JH 10X3, JH 11, JH 13, JH 16 and none of them could give me a soundstage I want.
I would love to get the UE RM for a monitor however I'm quite unsure if I should do it. Because if I can I really save a lot of money, because if I use headphones I need an amp also which cost a lot and they are much more bulky.
Matthew, I've heard the ATC 150 and own the JH13s and the new JH3a and have demoed the UERM. The UERM are fantastic and may be better suited to mixing from a recording details perspective. The headstage is not any larger wider than the JH13s.
So if you are looking to locate instruments in the mix IEMs may not be a good tool.
