Westone 3 and The MTPG
which would have more bass for hiphop and rap music

 

When I had the W3 hard-driving bass oriented music would make the driver trip up and clip. Not recommended by moi.

You sure yours wasn't defective? I've never had that problem before.

My vote goes to the MD Tribute (or gold if on a budget). The FX700 is great but the isolation is average and depending on where you will be using them it can be a problem.

I don't think so. I think it's just that some of my music collection is quite demanding on BA IEM's. TF10's did it, Klipsch Image X10, etc. The SM3 was about the only BA which survived unscathed, and conveyed this material with authority.

How do you mean? I've not experienced any driver issues or clipping on my W3 and I listen almost exclusively to bass orientated music.

Some of them seem to have some bass!!! I am a basshead trying to convert to less of one and a bassy ba IEM might just be my solution
Thanks


In my honest opinion, you need not look past the TF10. I'm wearing mine as we speak, and the TF10 handles bass heavy tracks effortlessly. I'd even go as far as to say it's more musical to my ears than the SM3, no ifs and buts. Their price:performance ratio is as good as the GR07/EX600 in my book.

Also my ears are I would say medium/small.  Not exactly small and not exactly "medium" but closer to medium and they feel a bit too deep to me still and cause a bit of irritation.

 

In the end let me say this: if you are looking for an IEM that will give you a lot of control in all frequencies and sound really crystal clear then look at the Atrios.  If you want something that'll sound thumpin in bass like a car's subwoofer then these may not be for you since they don't have a lot of midbass.



Great description. I also feel too many people speak about the Atrio's as if it's just all bass but that is not nearly accurate. The Atrio's do infact do minds and highs extremely well, just listen to anything with strings, piano, female vocals, hard hitting guitar power chords etc etc, all this added to that luscious bass.

I am confused how the Atrio dropped off your list after KitarP's description. Seems to me like they fit your requirements well.

No hiphop requires boosted bass in the midbass

If you are on a tight budget Atrio will do the trick. However, if you can afford it I'd recommend the MD. I owned both, but decided to sell the Atrio as I had issues getting a good fit/seal.

The ie8 I bet sounds great
On bestbuy I can't find a single place where they sell them
How does the bass on the ie8 compare to the w3
post #45 of 61

I've never heard the IE8s but from every thread I've read on this forum that discusses them, it seems their bass is pretty untouchable; the only complaint I've heard is minor bloating from non-bassheads, which will doubtless be completely invisible to someone coming from the Klipsch S4.
