Been itching to try them and compare them!

 

Currently on my shortlist of CIEMs:

1964 V6S (U6?)/V8(A12?), K10, LCX10, HT6

 

Haha. I'm sure he'll be glad to have you come down for an audition of the lineup of 1964 Ears / Noble earphones. The V6-Stage and K10 are really impressive IEMs. The V8 was pretty decent, but I preferred the sound of the V6S, at least from the demo units I tested.

I'll be hoping that that'll be the case :)

 

Has anyone tried the Hidition NT6pro and Rooth LSX10? How do they compare against the 1964s? 

 

Also what about JH and UM? >.<

You can audition Hidition and Rooth IEMs at Null Audio at Central. I haven't tried them before, though. For JH Audio, you can audition them at Jaben, and Stereo distributes the range of UM IEMs.

 

Btw, including 1964 Ears' and Noble's offerings, that's quite a huge list of CIEMs you have on your plate. Maybe you can tell us what kind of sound you are looking for, and what kind of music you prefer, and we can help to trim the list for you? :smile:

Well I'm a greedy person ain't I :)

 
Hmmm, my dictionary of terms is really limited.

 

I'm looking for something to complement my 846s. Sound signature should be neutral/natural? Not too warm, with good soundstaging. Bass quality should be on par with the 846s, with a little more punch (quantity - juat alittle more)? Mids should be neutral/forward and not too recessed (will seem too veiled to me) while the highs should be airy with a little bit of sparkle, but not too much till its fatigue inducing!

 

I guess thats the result of spending more time reading headfi/hwz instead of trying them out myself? My focus will still be 1964 and noble for now, and will most probably include the LSX and roxanne (customs). 

 

Not really going to include the UM series (didn't really liked them the last time i tried afew months back - can't remember why though, since I didn't take notes) nor the Hiditions (not enough bass). However I may try these brands more often, seeing that I pass by Plaza Sing (Stereo) and Clarke quay (null audio) often! Its the JH, 1964 and Noble where I have to find time out to demo. :)

I understand that the dealer of 1964Ears and Noble is usually willing to come to you. Just drop them a message and I'm sure they'll try their best to sort things out.

With your list of requirements, if you find something, let me know too. smily_headphones1.gif especially the "punchier bass than 846, less recessed mids and more airy, sparkly highs" requirement. I would love to get in on that too. I haven't found that yet in an iem.

Don't ever doubt i'd find them, not now at least. Surprising how good the SE846s are, even when compared to these 6-12 driver monsters coming out.

 

Those might be my requirements for an IDEAL iem. But I might just get something that is different to the shures, for whatever reason this crazily greedy mind of mine can come out with :(

Understood. I feel the same way. Maybe it's time for you to look into cans if you really want 'better'.

 

'Different', now that's a totally other story..

Yup, agreed. Hard to find something that totally wipes the floor with the shures. But different, yeah. there's so many different ones out there *gazes at all of them*

You prefer both the vocals and bass presentation of V6S over SE846?

Nope i prefer the overall presentation of the V6S over SE846.

SE846 has great vocals, but i find it too vocal centric, i find myself focusing more on the vocals than the whole music. If you love vocals then it's a good thing :D

post #5983 of 7413
I thought this was the se846 thread for a second lol

The se846 has its weaknesses and I can see why people don't like it. I prefer something more balanced and that's the reason why I ended up selling my se846. There's also a lot of people in the IE800 thread saying the IE800 is better than the SE846 so that's something to consider.

That makes me want to hear an SE846 with a few vocal trance tracks.  Though the price Shure is asking is more than I could convince myself to pay when for the same amount I could get a much (for me very much) more comfortable custom.

Mind you, I feel the IE800 has more weakness than SE846 lol. But I love their rich lush mids and bass.

I don't really listen to vocal trance so I'm not sure how the SE846 will fare, but if you do get the chance to try let me know how it goes wink.gif
