Need suggestion..Any "In ear" type that produce sound like singer is right in front of you?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just curious that is any "in ear" headphone that produce sound to listener feel like singer sing right in front of you with good instrument isolation?

 

What this interface called?

Could you please, list all that can do this?

Which is the best or value one?

Can Klipsch image S4 do that?

 

I was fell in love since I was tried on "on ear" or "around ear" by BOSE at Harrod, but not so sure which one. Is it depends on music file too in oder to make sound so, since I was tried on somewhere like "try me" counter at the shop? However, I decide to have one, but on "in ear" type. Please suggest!?

I believe they are called really forward mids :p

 

Could you please, list all that can do this?

The headphones I've heard with the most forward mids would be the Marshall Minors (I'm newer to the headphone industry :p), they wouldn't be able to suit what you are looking for.

 

Which is the best or value one?

Couldn't tell you since I can't recommend one.

 

Can Klipsch image S4 do that?

Haven't heard the S4, but from what I've heard, it has heavy bass, so the mids may sound recessed (not forward) compared to the bass.

Your asking if vocals sound forward on the Klipsch Image S4?

I own the S4, vocals don't really sound recessed so much, but they don't sound that full either. With individual singers they sound very nice but backing vocals seem a little thin or sucked out. I really haven't tried any other in ears in their price range. I used to have the bluetooth Ety 8 and they had a forward vocal, but many people find Ety's to sound thin and two dimensional. You could look up the MC5, it has a dynamic driver and is fuller, but don't take it from me; I haven't tried them.

 

I'm sure there are others that could really help you here. If you have the time, check out these very famous IEM compile reviews from ClieOS and ljokerl.

A sound that is full, either mid centric or warm and sweet with a decent to below average soundstage generally will project a very intimate vocal. Klipsch S4 will be opposite to a forward vocal. Klipsch X10 is more like it. If you want something less than $100, Shure SE215 is a very good choice.

Audio Technica's CK10 have the most forward vocals I've ever heard from an IEM. Included tips are not good. If you are prepared to try a bunch of different tips they are fantastic. smily_headphones1.gif

I have S4 and currently bought a pair of earphone from Spider, it actually works better than S4 if you like vocals and classical music, their mid is so smooth and bright, you can find it on headfi
