I have wanted to hear the EX1000s for ages, but haven't yet so can't comment. The only thing I can say with 100% certainty is that isolation will be much much better with CIEMs
"Positive impression" snare drum rim shot ! :-)

100% agree about isolation. I have about 98 out of 100%. I'm afraid to wear them out in public because I will not hear a thing! Great for airplanes and serious listening at home.

Hey Guys,

 

After reading through this thread I am so tempted to get a pair!

 

However I cant go past 1964 either, has anyone seen a comparison of the Miracles vs the 1964 V6s?

 

Thanks!

Don't forget the Frogbeats C4, they say it's really good...

hi joe,

 

I am thinking on buying a UM Miracle, how would you describe the sound compared with the Sony EX-1000?
 

thanks loquah, it was a random finding on the Internet bigsmile_face.gif

@ engelhaft
I know that there one who had a long and terrible case with his Merlin order, but he didn't order from UM directly or custom-iem.com, but AmpCity, which was run down and now closed. Except from AmpCity orders, I haven't heard of anybody with bad UM customer service.

Yes, I have.
joker (user here on Head-Fi) has made an incredibly long list of iem's that he has reviewed - including the Miracle and a 1964 ciem, and the Miracle is top of the top. The 1964 was rated very well, but doesn't reach the level of the Miracle.

Hi Lars, 

 

Yes I did read Joker's thread, it was long but very enjoyable lol

 

However he only tested the newer 1964 V3s which he mentioned was really good, but it's only around half the price of the Miracles, with half as many drivers. 1964 also just recently released the V6s which would probably be more fair to compare with the Miracles so I was hoping for  a comparison before deciding on it.

 

Initially I was thinking of the V6 @ $650 but by the time I add custom + shipping to America it would be like $800 so if it's just going to be 1-200 more for the UM then I might as well go for the best one! (subjective)

 

I know drivers may be irrelevant to SQ etc etc but it's probably more fair to compare the Miracles with V6, so hopefully Joker gets a pair soon!

I think you need to wait a little bit longer due to the fact that the V6 has just released and only few people could have both of those customs at the moment.

I decided on Miracles also because of the review by project86, who compared it to JH13, and thought Miracle was better. The JH Audio model is even more expensive ($1099) than the Miracle and it also has six drivers.

Of course it's not the six driver ciem from 1964, but that's just the bottom line for me when deciding on Miracle. The 1964 might be even better, but until some people with both ciem's does a double review on them, nobody will know.

Yeah, I might hold out until Christmas and hope we get some more reviews before ordering it.

 

Also hoping for some Christmas sale aswell lol

 

Thanks

I think you will be pleased. I spoke with the Joker 2 months ago right before I ordered which is well after he wrote the Miracle review. He still rates them 10/10 for sound.

 

Soon I will be getting a custom cable my bud from down under is making for me. Can't wait to try it out to see of it can possibly make it sound better.  I'm skeptical though that it can be any better! etysmile.gif

Yeah, I hope so too! This will my the first CIEMs for me.

 

Just another (noob) question - I've noticed that U-IEMs uses silicon buds but are CIEMs just the plastic? Doesn't look as comfy as silicon buds tho!

 

Or are we able to put buds on? =S
