Ortofon e-Q5 Impressions Thread - Page 66

post #976 of 980

i think eq5 is very good for an iem you can buy used 150-180$

also having the 250$ re-272 and the 150$ re-262 , i find it clearly better than the 262 and on par with the 272

in fact having eq5/re272 keeps my upgraditis tamed - i also tried the 400$ re-600 and i don't think it's more than a 10-15% better than both these 2 iems

it all comes down to finding the IEM sound that clicks with your personal sonic taste.

Thinking about changing tips on my Ortofons. I know the Sony EP-EX10M used to fit.

 

What are the current equivalent of the Sony EP-EX10M hybrids that would fit on the e-Q5? Is it just EP-EX11M? Would the EP-EXN50M fit too?


Thanks.

My Ortofons are hideous. They've been with me for over 3 years. The right side had connection issues, but fortunately it wasn't deep into the housing so I was able to strip some of the cable away, re-solder, and then glue-gun shut. I put some glue on the other side just in case. The splitter was giving up on me as well, but I've glued that together now too. When all fails, I will probably get another pair. Why? What I love about them is that they are very, very quality in the mids. I personally believe that it doesn't matter how high or how low your headphones/IEMs go - bulk of the music is in the mids so if the mids are sub-par then there is no point in all the extras. 

 

 

I travel about 2 hours on public transport to and from work every day, so my e-q5s are my best friend. Isolation could be better, cable quality could be better, but sonically I really couldn't ask for any more. I find the treble absolutely perfect. My music is 90% jap vocals so it suits me just perfect. SOMETIMES I might want more bass, but my JDS c5d takes care of that with some controlled and tasteful bass boost that doesn't affect the amazing airiness and clarity the e-q5 has in 70% of the spectrum.

 

Last note is that I have these Sony tips, which I found head and shoulders above the stock tips. 

 

I will probably write a more detailed response of the c5d pairing with the e-q5s using an xperia z1 later on (when i receive my otg cable and straps). Enjoy the e-q5s everyone!
