yes, because it was priced high so they used the ex600 cables. there's a huge difference in price w/ ex1k cables before and i remember the ex1k w/ orig. cable was going to be imported from Japan at a price..

 

yes same as i did before xD

 

we hear differently as we know. the difference may sound little to you... depends :)

the original cable is way too expensive for me, so I stick with the NA ex600 cable.

It does look much worse, but sound wise I found nothing to complaint with.

Maybe I need to AB it with a GOOD cable, but straight from my DX100, the experience is rather excellent.

I got both Miracle and Mentor and also auditioned the IE800. For me, Sony sound is still special in its own way.

 

Not saying it is better than my customs cause they do tuned for different things, but as far as micro dynamic driver goes, EXK is the best I have ever heard.

 

(Sorry to Sennheiser fans, but I do NOT  think their IEM division is the same as their full size ones. I love the HD800 while hated every IEM they put on the market. Looks like the engineer for IEM only listen to hiphop and rap musics)

they really are. 

 

I strongly agree with your thoughts!

 

the tuning of the Ex1k caters to all in my playlist.. just the isolation xD

EX1000 might be the next upgrade for me. I have the EX800 now and they're absolutely wonderful but I find myself wanting more treble sparkle and energy than the EX800 can give me and the EX1000 seem like the most natural upgrade choice to get there while still retaining the same characteristics if not improving some of them a bit more.


I can understand why they get such high praise here. Too bad Sony didn't keep these models and improve them.

My memory is fuzzy but how are the EX1000s on vocals again? I remember reading something about how they were good for male vocals but not female. Same goes for EX800s I think.

The EX1000 sound fabulous with male or female vocals IMO. The only IEM I've heard that can challenge them is the Aurisonics Rockets. The only thing to be wary of is potential sibilance.
