Anybody heard of this?
Ouch, the website hurts my eyes. Also the prices don't impress on a per BA basis.
Website is quite 'slick', but that's not necessarily a good thing.
I'm not convinced that it is hardcore audiophile, what with the emphasis on 'bling' in the model's ears, rather than on detailed description of the sound signature of each CIEM. But that's just my honest first impressions and I could be wrong...
Anybody heard of this?
As a MOT I can't really say anything on quality and stuff. I will just say they are like polish Ultimate Ears (although much much less known) - they have strong PR (as well as marketing regarding technical aspects of their IEMs) and at least 90% of their clients are musicians. They support some of the biggest names on polish scene.
Other than that they've been around for some time and rooted from company that makes hearing aids.
haha... that'd be a funny metric, '$/BA' --- I wonder who/what would rank at the top/bottom?
Just received the EM32... definitely a unique and fantastic sounding CIEM. Treble extension and micro detail is top class.
The bass is......soooooo powerful...I can't believe it's even more powerful than my EM6 if I remember it correctly.
Thank you ear sonics for making a CIEM that doesn't hurt my ears for the first time :p
Alien Ears, Audio Earz, and Cosmic Ears all dip down to just over $100/BA. I haven't seen anything less than that. At the top end, maybe the Puretone Micro Classic 1 which is over $800 for the single driver (as of today's exchange rate).
No clue. It seems there are several factors leading to higher prices: silicone shells, single driver designs, and currency conversion. Look at any brand with these factors in place and you're likely to find them expensive on a per-driver basis. Going dual driver or triple driver raises the total price but lowers the per-driver breakdown.
Received your 'parcel' this afternoon, so cheers for that!
On the EM32 - you said:
Powerful bass in terms of being boosted, or just in terms of being neutral but capable ?
How does the extension and micro detail compare to the NT6?
Well, yeah, that's a factor as well. I was just saying that single driver silicone designs from other areas tend to be the most expensive per driver, regardless. Within that field there are surely some that command more due to build.
No problem ;)
Boosted below 90Hz ;)
Not as clear as NT6, but both extension and micro detail is better on EM32. ;)
Copy and paste from PM:
EM32 still has the house sound of ear sonics.
It has a very clever tuning. Overall it's very balanced.
The mid is neutral and laid back compared to EM6, so it's not mid forward anymore.
I think I mentioned somewhere EM6's treble extension can challenge 5 way's, EM32 do that to a even "further" extent (definitely extends further than NT6, not as far, and linear as SE5) The resolution, amount of detail is very high. Transparency and clarity is great too. The bass is powerful and dynamic with decent depth. Soundstage is pretty accurate with great depth and imaging.
1. Bass is as impactful as EM6, it also has lifted subass (starting from 80-90Hz), mid-upper bass is very neutral and certainly doesn't bleed to the mids. But the subbass rumble can be too much on some songs. IMO the bass is not as well controlled as EM6, can be bloated at times.
2. The upper treble (14-16K Hz), this region is a little bit lifted. I think ES try to over exaggerate the micro detail just a little bit on EM32. So it make some songs sound shimmer ,dry and too detailed if you know what I mean. However the boost passes the treble region of sibilance, brightness and harshness, so overall it still sounds very smooth and musical.
3. Lower treble is not as recessed as EM6, but the air and space width can still be improve a little more.
Overall it's a warm, smooth CIEM, but the boost in the upper treble balances the warmth a little. It's basically a thinner, more detailed version of EM6.
