I experience significantly more sweating when wearing SE-5 than when wearing acrylic CIEMs (UM Miracle, FS MG6 Pro etc.)

 

Ah, yes, my misunderstanding.  From what I understood, the inner ear does not sweat.  Interesting and thanks for the info, you learn something new every day!  I will have to try for myself at some point.

Joe, this has probably been asked before but, what are your favorite CIEMs? Do you have one that you use most of the time, or are there a few that you like to use?

 

I listen to what I am reviewing.  Do I have some preferences for when I don't have something to review?  It has been so long, but I want one of the highest performers in my collection.  None have the same sound signature, so that is good, and grabbing any one particular top-tier CIEM will bring great results.

Welcome back!  There are no reviews on head-fi of any Stage 93 products that I know of.  I hope to get an opportunity at some point and am curious myself.

Sorry, I should have put a biggrin.gif in there as I was kidding also.  Trust me, I want EVERYTHING for review, but I review in the very little free time I have at night.  At this point, for me, it is not about getting something I would enjoy, because when I get a product, I listen to it for review purposes, and when I am done, I store it until the next comparison I need to do.  But, I am fortunate that most CIEMs are very good, musical, and I can enjoy the listening.

Since this has become sort of the de facto thread for all things CIEM related, I'll add this here in case anyone is interested. We just did a large custom IEM roundup over at InnerFidelity. Here is a link. I see some areas where our opinions differ from Average Joe, but in most cases I'd say we see (or hear!) things very similarly.

 

By the way, after working on that project, I have that much more respect for Joe and his work on this thread. It's really time consuming, and he's put in a ton of effort. I've done my share of individual CIEM reviews around here but doing it all in one spot with comparisons and everything is even more difficult. So thumbs up to Joe!

Great reviews guys. Where you differ the most I would think is in the ES5...Joe seemed less enthusiastic.

Well, for the record, I tried on a friend's ES5 and found it to be just like how the IF reviewers described it... it's really just a pleasant earphone to listen to.

True that... beerchug.gif ...but the ES5 did pleasantly surprise me with how nice it sounded. I really didn't expect Westone to do so well. It was just very laid back and easygoing.

post #2745 of 4077
Yes...but not...Japanese enough smily_headphones1.gif my revelation is more on the JH13 freq. I knew they were good, but not that good.
