***Earbud Guide - 22 Earbuds compared*** - Page 40

post #586 of 599

I would say the MX-985 are better in clarity and detail. The blox BE5 is a bit warmer and has better bass extension. I use the MX-985 for critical music listing and when I want to be more engaged I switch to the BE5 (and sometimes ANV3 however the BE5 has better and clearer treble). The BE5 is also a bit easier in use since it is lighter and has a better fit. Although the MX-985 fits me and I can wear it for hours without pain or problems the fit is just not as good as with the blox, this could also be the reason the blox gives me more bass. I listen to these buds without an amp with an iphone5.

Could anyone who owned or tried any of these comment on how comfortable they are for side-sleeping: Yuin OK1, PK1, Sennheiser MX985, Blox BE3?

I haven't tried the other but yuin pk1 are very comfortable . I think ok1 may be a bit less comfortable due to thicker housing. MX985 from what i've read are big and might not be that comfortable

Some people like to fall sleep to music without disturbing the person who's sleeping next to them. :P

Your mind isn't conscious about what song is being played while you're asleep.

Nice comparison! And I know I am a little late, my excuse is that I've just received an MDR-E557 today.
Well...the phones are nice. Great mid, a little bit shy bass, very forward and clear.
But far not as full and rich in bass-mid-bass as my sony MDR-E262s. What are your opinions about those? :)
