they go high , i don't know what frequency is this but they go high - they are very competent iems you will probably enjoy them

i also have re-272 which is considered the king of highs but i don't see major differences

eq5 is a very enjoyable iem although i think the mids are a tad more forward than they should

I enjoy them now, amazing iem

i now think i like my EQ-5 more than my RE-262(which cost a 100$ less) and almost the same as the (same price) RE-272 , even though these 2 iems have different sound signatures

for someone wanting to stay below the 250$ threshold , i think this is a very good choice

If you like the E-Q5 and RE272 you will love the E-Q8. It has a bit of both worlds but I am not sure if it can beat the RE272 in terms of overall sound quality.

 

Just for reference, quite a while ago I had both the the E-Q5 and RE262 myself and I had the RE272 for an extended listening session too.

how much 'better' do you find EQ8 to be compared to EQ-5/RE-272 ?

Hard to say because a year has passed since I last had/heard the E-Q5/RE272. The E-Q8 has higher resolution compared to E-Q5. It has less bass but has a similar or even more pronounced 2 khz bump.

From my memory I would say Re272 vs E-Q8 are quite similar in overall SQ but I really can't say now which is "better".

I've just posted a small review of the EQ8 and some comparisons with the. EQ 7 and EQ5. You can find he review on the EQ8 impressions tread.

double flanges ? how do these affect the sound ?

post #970 of 972

Well, i got better seal, that means better bass response, and with deep insertion mids are more forward.

post #971 of 972

With this double flanges the sound is still bright because the hole in the middle is big like the stock tips, if you want to come down upper mids you can try sony hibrids with smaller hole in the middle, that will come down upper mids.

post #972 of 972

i still think the medium/large ortofon tips give the better sound overall

the double flanges seem to congest everything a bit

i now find eq5 to be on par , quality-wise, with my re-272
