Review, Future Sonics Atrios: Comparison between different tips - Page 10

post #136 of 237

I didn't have the X at the same time as the MG7 but I would say the main difference was in treble.  The MG7 had more upper mid and treble presence.

Thanks Shane.  That's what I've read about the MG7 drivers...that the treble was more pronounced with the MG7's.  I can live with not having the best treble....but not having the best bass...tough call hahaha.  Luckily I don't have to make that decision though.  bigsmile_face.gif

Biggest difference between mg5 and mg7 is treble, not bass.  My mg5 Atrios actually had ever-so-slightly better bass than my mg7's, although mg7 treble was much improved.

Awesome!  Thanks for that.  I sent them an e-mail earlier today asking if it was Version 1 or Version 2 of the MG5.  Waiting to hear back.

So which one gives most bass quantity?

Any of them really. Getting bass quantity isn't a real concern. Any tip with a good seal gives you that. The concern is finding a comfortable tip with a large sound hole to allow as much treble as possible through.

This, although if you really want max bass, go for foams.  Get Shure Olives or Comply Foams.  Most people prefer the Shure's I think, although I like the Comply better.

Ended up getting the Atrio X's yesterday (managed to get a deal on 'em $34.95 new).  I'm wearing them with Sony Hybrids and Monster Adapaters...all is well and the fit is comfortable for me etysmile.gif  From everything I've read about Atrios they need lots of burn in time, but I like the way they sound right now just fine.  Only complaint is the cord length is kind of short.

Are these the Olives for the Atrios..will they fit?  I haven't tried them, but price looks good on these: http://www.eardio.com/memory-foam-replacement-ear-tips-black-medium-3-pairs-p-93.html

No, those are manufactured by JVC.  "Olives" are made by Shure:  http://store.shure.com/store/shure/en_US/DisplayProductDetailsPage/productID.105436100

No, not without modding them with the core of another tip.  Those are made to fit the Shure e2c, which has a wider nozzle.  Besides, you do not want to use foam with the Atrios IMO.  It completely kills any treble presence.

I sometimes use Comply foams.  I definitely agree that foams decrease treble on the Atrios (and generally reduce the SQ while doing it), but I like foams, especially when I fly.  If you really want foams, I'd say it's worth a try as long as you go into it not expecting an improvement in SQ.

post #148 of 237

Ok thanks guys.  I must say the Atrio X's have been really growing on me.  I still haven't gone the 100 hours yet, probably at about 35 hours now, but I think the bass has gotten deeper.  I'm not completely sure though.  I've been using the FS small biflange tips primarily because it's so fast to get a good seal and I think I've gotten use to them so pretty comfortable.  I'm more curious than anything else to try different tips with them that keep comfort level high and no degradation in Sound Quality.  I use the Monster Adapters with Sony Hybrids which are comfortable, but I like the seal/fit of the small biflanges better.

It's been a while since your post, but I just wanted to make clear that the atrio x does not use the same driver as the one found in either the v1 or v2 version of the atrio m5.  The atrio x uses the old MG5 driver (which was used in Future Sonics old FS1 model), whereas revisions 1 and 2 of the atrio m5 used the upgraded MG5pro driver.  I owned the v1, v2, and atrio x all at the same time until recently, and I really felt that the atrio x was a pretty substantial step back from the v1 and v2 atrio m5 in terms of bass impact and overall enjoyment.  I'm not saying that it sounded bad or not worth the going price, but I was hoping for something that sounded more like the old atrio m5, and it didn't deliver.

Very interesting, I didn't realize that the Atrio X have different drivers; I just assumed they were the same as the older Atrios.
