I really rate these spider ones (they're mock-ups, but still...):

I actually only want them as earplugs...

 

Bad joke in 3, 2, 1...

 

That way, I can put them on when others are having a cow!

 

Har har har...

Very interesting.  Are there 3 drivers?  How does it sound?

 

 

 

These are from swiss Audiolab systems, they offer two triple driver models, I got linear model(also has second with boosted bass). They go for neutral, slightly brighter sound.

Compared to my JH16, JH16 are faster, more controled, more dynamic. Audiolabs offer better depth and lcoation and more microdetail.

 

Something special on them, they use replaceable filters against ear wax.

 

Price is around 750$ I think.

Wow, I am really loving the spider art.  I will have to lift that idea for a future set.

Thanks for the additional info.  I take it the replaceable filterers are similar to that found on the M-Fidelity, and Fabs?

Funny, after all this time, I hadn't realised the SA-43s are silicone!

Yes. SA means Silicon Awesomess.

They aren't silicone, they have acrylic-shells, but M-Fidelity offers silicone filling inside of them for an extra fee.

Just recieved the universal version of a CIEM. It is a dual dynamic, might be the only of its kind (multi dynamic) until the up coming 3DD is released!

 

 

 

Oh and it hates the Ak100 from first audition a haha!

Yes acrylic shells filled with silicone! My Starkey also have them filters and my ACS and variation!

post #2711 of 3830

Do you think those replaceable filters can be used on other CIEMs like JH 16? I keep getting wax problem. I have bought a IEM vacuum cleaner  (Jodi Consumer) and a dryer now to try to make my CIEM last longer.

Got my UERM today. Impressions against SE535 and SRH940.

To begin, it came with a really good box and a very practical case. Sadly, right side would seal fine, but it cause pain. I just sent off my UERM after spending few painful hours with it.

So here is the comparison:

 

Sound Stage: Against SE535, it is slightly more wide and significantly taller. Up and down is distinguished in UERM. However, it doesn't beat the SRH940. I'll call it iem version of SRH940, sound stage wise. I feel confident to say that UERM has realistic and very wide sound stage for a IEM.

 

Detail: Beats the SE535 by quiet a bit. Slightly better than SRH940.

 

Layering: UERM beats both SE535 and SRH940 on layering. Very well layered.

 

Sub-bass: Does not roll off like SE535 and well extended like SRH940. I was worried when people told me it didn't have enough bass, but the bass was similar to what I was used to from SRH940.

Mid-bass: Although not as round as SE535, more detailed and quick. It decays very well, leaving sense of space and speed at the same time. Perfect amount of bass for me.

Lower-mids: It dethrones SE535 from my #1 list. Although not as thick, there is smoothness, detail, and superb clarity. It has slightly more lower mids than SRH940.

Upper-mids: SE535 wasn't the absolute best at this. UERM is fluid and smooth. Amount of upper mid is on par with SRH940, but UERM has smoother upper mids.

Sibilance: Sibilance is something I was worried about. It actually has less sibilance than both the shures, and that is pretty good.

Lower treble: Fluid, more forward compared to SE535. Great detail and airyness. Reminds me of SRH940.

Upper treble: Very well extended and extends farther than SE535, and it extends to limits of my hearing. Not rolled off, and has good detail and air.

 

I was worried about people telling me about harsh treble and not enough bass. When I first heard the UERM, the sound didn't feel new. It shares lots of similarities with SRH940, but only better!(besides the sound stage) I think it has adequate bass and well extended high.

 

Naturalness: I almost forgot to mention this. UERM is the most natural iem I've heard. The mids of UERM made mids of SE535 sound unreal and fake. 

 

Although I said UERM is better than SE535, I still like my SE535 a lot. Here is why:

SE535 has isolation that is better or on par with UERM.

SE535 is easier to put in and out of my ear.

SE535 has better filter and is easier to clean(besides the cable connector)

SE535 is more comfortable(that may be because I'm not used to customs)

SE535 has rounder mid bass that I think is one of the best in iems.

 

I also like SRH940 because:

SRH940 is a full sized headphone, not a iem.

SRH940 has bigger sound stage.

SRH940 is more comfortable.

SRH940 is what made me buy the UERM.

That is correct.  The best of both worlds (high isolation, acrylic toughness)?  My SA-43 is extremely comfortable, so I can't say the silicone shells are more comfortable in my ears.

I don't think they will stay as the CIEMs with the filters have sound tube openings made to hold the filters in place.  You probably do, but cleaning your ears before each use may help, but the vacuum and dryer seem like the right move.

Thanks for sharing.  The bolded text makes me smile.  What once sounded good doesn't when you move up.  How can it sound so good until you hear something better?  evil_smiley.gif

Tanks for info, but how is the opening made to hold the filters? Are they threaded?

 

I am mostly afraid that sweet will come in to the BAs. And I cant clean away my sweat. I have tried to concentrate hard on not to sweat through my ears but it has not helped. ;) Maybe CIEM is not for jogging, but they make me run much faster!

That's the evil of this hobby. Once you scale up, there is no going down. I'm feeling sorry for my wallet.
