I understand them in the following way - they don't do the reshelling; they only does this for the original buyer of thir customs.

Guys, which CIEM are similar to Beyerdynamic DT250/250?

post #3351 of 4040

I love the tuning of the SM64. But the soundstage kills it all for me. So unrealistic.

Which custom is similiar with a much more grander, 3d Soundstage?.

Thanks for your help

Does anyone have alternative email address or phone number to Spiral Ear? I've sent them few emails within last few days but once again I did not receive any reply. It is likely that my email may once again landed in spam.

He sometimes takes 4 or 5 days to answer. To check if it landed in spam, put a read confirmation on your mail.

What exactly are you looking for in a soundstage?  Have you heard an IEM with an acceptable soundstage?  Maybe look into the M-Fidelity SA-43.  The soundstage is much more spacious with excellent imaging and a more laid back sound.

I have heard the UERM Demo and the SD3.

Sm64 sounds very weird. Vocals are little behind me and instruments even more, placed at angle of 45degress from them...

I think I'll have to upgrade my source .. heard the UE RM with different cd players and some were more dynamic & less harsher than others, which resulted in less fatigue at higher volumes. My +10 year old Denon player performs pretty poor, the XTZ CD-100 is at least listenable at moderate volume levels..

 

Thank you very much Joe for recommending the SE-5 - it is indeed an impressive sounding piece. Even though there is no fatigue problem when listening with the SE-5, the sound is still quite a bit smeared and unrefined due to my player.

What impressed me most (compared to UE RM and every other headphone so far) is how every sound is placed differently on each recording, doesn't have a static place and it sounds as if there was an actual room with sound waves "traveling" through it. Amazing. What other CIEMs or open headphones have this ability?

 

My fear was that they might be a little to thick and muddy sounding like the HD 650 - but fortunately that's not the case at all. Your descriptions hit the nail on the head and I already wrote down which other IEMs in your reviews are tempting. The PRM, NT-6, SA-43 seem to be quite impressive too.

The way you describe the sound stage is not the way I was hearing it, so you may want to try tip rolling as well as different insertion depths and angles.  Also, did you buy them used or new, or are they on loan or a demo?

 

I have no knowledge of the SD3, but the UERM has a spacious and "reference" presentation vs. the mid-forward presentation (how mine sound) of the SM64.  If you want something more traditional, there are plenty of similar sounding CIEMs (and IEMs).  The Fit Ear 334 is an example of a universal that sounds similar, but better.  The 8.A, SE5, T1 Live, etc will all be fairly close and you should check out my table of reviews here.  Try clicking on the "Show other types of headphones for reference" checkbox and hitting search to see the SM64 and then you can further narrow down your choices by selecting "Sonic traits" and searching again (and/or other variables).

Thanks for the comments and I am glad my description is what you are hearing!  I call what you refer to as "how every sound is placed differently on each recording, doesn't have a static place and it sounds as if there was an actual room with sound waves "traveling" through it" as resolution, and the SE5 ranks the highest of what I have heard.

 

There are other impressive CIEMs out there that can give you a compliment in various different ways.  Compared to the cost of home audio systems, this hobby is cheap, so grab several ;)

Oh, WOW... Such a nice review and comparison... Look, I am yet to get my first ever custom, and am looking for one... I love neutral 'phones, not that flat, but rather more focused on the treble and detail... I'm looking for CRYSTAL CLEAR and ULTRA-DETAILED sound, without too much bass... I've decided that it could be a bit 'sharp' since I wanted detail, but I never wanted to go overdrive, so I was wondering if any of you could recommend me anything... I'm not quite worried about the manufacturer or budget, no quite as much, but yeah, I never really wanted to go overdrive, so, thanks,... smily_headphones1.gif

I can see what sound signature you are after, but to avoid misunderstandings - what headphones (any - be it iem or full size) have you heard so far and which had the sound you're after?

 

@joe

i haven't bought proper speakers so far so i wouldn't know which system is cheaper.. btw..I'll be able to listen to a stax system in the near future - it will be an interesting comparison I think. did you have the chance to listen to a hd 800 or he-6?
