those are acs custom tips which have been re fit using my impression. i really wanted to try the JVC tips but they do not do shipping to my place.

Wow so the fit must be really good then. If you really did want the tips PM me and I can see what I can work out for you. I'd use the cheapest shipping to you though as its not worth spending big on tips :).

the yams do have more sub bass and go bit deeper than the 80's. but the senn's do have a bit more mid bass and seem to hit harder.

I personally think you might as well get GR07, better to have another IEM at disposal and to enjoy.

Sadly the cable wasn't for my taste. By all means, I still do enjoy IE80. Just with stock cable.

Hey guys...I'm super pumped !!! I just found out that I was the winner for Razordogs headphone giveaway for this last month, for the IE 80's. I've been using some Klipsch S4's for the past year and am really excited to get into some quality IEM's.

 

I have a couple questions...for those of you who upgraded your cable...do you feel it was worth it? I was browsing the forums and the Toxic Cable definitely peeked my interest. 

 

Also, what source are most of you guys using in terms of portability? I'm thinking of (now since I'll be getting the IE80's) Rockbox'ing my iPod. 

 

Any feedback would be appreciated. Will post impressions/pics when I get them. 

 

Have a great day !!! atsmile.gif

Well many of the people here who have upgraded to the silver cable have found it to be a noticeable improvement over the stock cable. There is one though that doesn't agree and feels the cable has colored the sound. IMO the sound is more balanced though with the cable. I got mine from seller zeroshoe on ebay. The cable is of good quality and is cheaper than the toxic cables TMK (silver galaxy cable).

Yeah I was looking at that cable from Zeroshoe as well, it looks like a nice cable. The Toxic Cable is over double the price although I doubt it'd really matter much considering I'm using an iPhone most of the time as my source a anyways (I spend a lot of time in the gym). This is kind of a dumb question...but I've noticed that for some reason, and maybe it's just me...but does music found better from an iPod than an iPhone? I just ordered an E11 so hopefully that'll help a little too. I'm really excited to get these babies!

I personally notice no significant difference on cable swaps. I buy cables for aesthetics only. ;)

Yeah, that's how I feel about cables too. Although silver galaxy did change a bit. But yes, walking around with cool-looking cables do get attention from random people :P

I can't get a good fit on them yet with the supplied tips, so will be ordering some different tips during the weekend.

Are the IE80 any good for electronic music?

post #2849 of 5567

They aren't half bad at it and improved in that regard with the cable upgrade. They are good all-arounders more so than genre specific. I do however enjoy the FX700s more for electronic.

Just gotten my TWAG V2s for my IE8s.

 

First impression is the bass, the quality of it has improved a lot, there's far less thumping now that used to hurt my ears on certain songs.

The bass also extends out to make the soundstage really wide and the decay improved too.

 

Also give a bump in the mids and highs with details slightly more pronounced.

All in all, the does change the sound signature a little, becomes even more lively.

 

The funny stuffs i've found out with silver cables is that they pair better with the sony hybrids than the stock cable did.

On stock cable, the sonys lessens the soundstage but give incredible comfort.

But on the silver cables, it didnt lessen the soundstage, perhaps a little, but not discernable unless u do a very concentrated critical listening.
