Rudistor IMD-3

 

imd3-w2-300q.jpg

 

 

  • Headphone type: MagnetoDynamics semi closed
  • Impedance: 32 Ohm
  • Transducers: Neodimium/Mylar 15mm
  • Frequency response: 15Hz - 25Khz
  • Sensitivity: 112 dB
  • Price MSRP: US$160

 

So anyone ever tried it? it comes from Rudistor, so I guess it'll be a really good IEM

I tried a fresh new pair when it first arrived at Jaben a few days ago. It has sound signature similar to Radius DDM, with a little more bass and a little less treble. It  probably requires some burn-in so it is hard to tell how good it is going to be.

That kind of housing is not one I would like to have in an earphone after experiencing the DDM the past week or so. It does look like the nozzle is shorter so might have a better fit.

The housing is almost a direct clone of Sony MDR-EX700, but with a slightly thicker center. As like the EX700, fitting should not be a big issue. It definitely fit better than DDM as I tried both at the same time.

Tried it just now at jaben. Shockingly this iem appears very similar to the sony ex series based on the housing and l/r indicator. Sounds bassy(subwooferish) similar to the cks90/ddm. However, the fit wins the ddm. Kind of reminds me of the ebs, with a cleaner feel.

how about compare it to cks70?

 

so the basic sound sig is bassy I guess?

 

and how about the isolation and leak sound? from what I know, semi IEM has bad isolation and leak a lot

I am probably gonna get them and compare with my beloved DDMs and write my first review or something

just bit the bullet man!

couldnt resist it having more bass and better fit than the DDM

It is similar to CKS70 as both are bass driven, but IMD-3 should has a lighter, thiner sound in the mid IIRC.

good news then, because I always feel CKS70's bass is too much

damn this looks very interesting. If the big driver is implemented correctly like the DDM (and unlike sony) this could really be something
