New IEM manufacturer "Sonocore" from S.Korea

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

I saw this on ebay and decided to have a look around head-fi if anyone has ever posted anything about it and to my surprise no one has ever posted anything about it. Here's the  link

Dual driver's, for $55!! so tempted though I'm a little short on cash so if anyone wants to bite the bullet and tell us how they sound it would be great ;)

it seems to have both dynamic drivers, not the armatures, so the referrence to Westone 3 seems a little strange :)

bit the bullet :)

Good luck. Not one I would have gone for but I hope they work out.

This is actually quite curious looking to me. I don't mind being a guinea pig...

Everything's good about the ebay listing apart from the "like Westone 3 way" when it's not really like the W3/um3x at all.

Well, I sent an email to the contact listed on the Alibaba page (S.D Kim) asking if there was any retailer, or if there was a way to purchase a single unit for evaluation. (The Ebay listing from Canada seems steep in regards to shipping, and perhaps I'll get lucky with a review unit.)

i have one on my way already :)

It's their full range 6mm unit with added bass driver. There may be a xover but it's not in the mock up. if I read the specs right and I may be completely off here, there's a lot of extra bass in the 2 way.

I purchased one from ebay and since I'm in Canada, shipping isn't that expensive. I previously had the radius ddm which is also a dual dynamic driver iem. The radius ddm was much more expensive and I sold it after a few weeks because I did not like the sound signature. To be fair to the ddm, they have been praised by others who have listened to them. It just wasn't my cup of tea. Hopefully the sonocore dual driver iem will be a pleasant surprise. Here is a frequency response graph that I got from the net:

That frequency response scares me. That looks like a TON of bass, especially deep bass. Is that even possible? o_o

Imagine if these became the new FOTM LOL, if so I'm expecting: "these beat the MD's and DDM's HANDS DOWN" etc etc.

i'm curious about that too, maybe it can be another "dirty pleasuring" IEMs with tons of bass like subwoofers attached to the ears LOL basshead.gif
