The Vamp as far as I know only works with the iPhone 4 and 4S.

Yes, but it won't "fit" into the enclosure. I don't see why it wouldn't work with an iPod, and I believe it's mentioned in one of the 2 reviews on Amazon.

The reviews on amazon say yes, but it doesn't look like it will fit to good on the iPod because of the size difference.

Cool!  It beats Amazon's price by a fair bit so that's a win.  I'd get one as I tend to like AKG, but I just blew the last of my "treat myself" budget on the $75 UE 700 (I finally succumbed).

post #6893 of 9236

Already owned the UE700 and they are pretty decent, but too high for gift level (under $50 is it). So the AKG's are perfect.

Hello - sorry for the late reply I have been away for a few days.

 

Yes I have HD25 and W3 too, though I have not heard MDT yet, W3 is similar to TF10 but W3 mid is not as recessed, though its treble is not as good as TF10's

 

IMHO, W3 is slightly better than UE700, bigger impact bass, more detailed, though I like UE700's treble better than W3

I have the Uptowns and the JVC S500's, both of which I am very happy with. I was thinking that my next foray would be into a full size open set, but that deal is definitely tempting!

Any opinions on which is better for rock? MEElectronics A161 or  Ultimate Ears 700? Both similar sales price on Amazon. Leaning toward the 700's only because of the double armatures (if i'm not mistaken about this), but not sure if that necessarily makes the sound better.
 

post #6899 of 9236

 

Tempting...as I always wanted A161P. but I have just bought XBA-1 so I think I may have to pass on this deal...

Just bought both of these recently and I preferred the UE700 by a healthy margin. I didn't care for the A161's treble/upper mid-range. They are very detailed...but almost artificially so. I returned them. 

 

I find the UE700 to be very good all-arounders, but I may return them too.  I need to listen more, but right now I am not finding them different enough from the XBA-1 to keep both.  And I have the XBA-3 coming soon.

 

(clearly, I have been hanging out in this thread too much lately!)
