Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread - Page 277

I'm actually comparing then to the UE900, which a mate has and the fact I wanted to buy them originally.

IE80 any day. UE900 has great detail, but mids are a little too forward for me. Overall bass is too anaemic for me too.

IE80 is just more engaging IMO.

Got my JVC tips today. The fit is slightly worse than the Sony hybrid 2 tips I had on previously(as the JVC is slightly shorter) but the sound is improved with more space between sounds. Wish they did a wide bore Sony hybrid.

 

Should have a pair of Phonak PFE 112s to test them against next week.

Had these over a year, went through 2 silver cables (silver galaxy and Toxic). Still can't find right tips. GG.

Ok, well the reason I asked is because IF you have Radio Shacks, or the corporate equivalent, they sell AUVIO eartips that are great for IE8/80's.

Did you try the sleeping earplug mod?

Yeah, tried it. Wasn't my cup of tea.

How do these compare to the IE60?

My JVC tips arrived today and I'm trying them out now. They are light blue medium and my initial impression is that these give the best sound so far, out performing the Complys and the Mobeast. They have improvedclarity, a more focussed and defined bass and a wider sound stage. Isolation is negligible without music and so so at low volume. I don't necessarily see that as a negative.

 

Someone mentioned that the black JVCs are the best but I can't see how colour should make a difference. I wonder if I need the large ones instead. At $5 a go I suppose I can experiment.

 

The Radio Shack Auveo mediums are out of stock online and as I don't live in the US I can't get hold of these. Any ideas. I'm getting closer to the sound I want from these IEMs.

Purchased JVC black, large, to see if the larger ones will give better isolation. The mediums felt slightly loose in my right ear.

I agree with your description of the sound and isolation features of the JVC tips. If I really want to isolate I use foam, but the sound with the JVC tips is so good I don't care enough to swap them out on my daily train ride. I bought the large as well as the medium (both black), but the large simply doesn't seal properly at all. The medium tips, for $5, have been an excellent purchase for these IEMs :P

Hi,

 

Can you provide the url or the website from which you bought the JVC ear tips?  Thanks.
