Yup. Really good actually. However the straight plug was great as well.

honestly i never looked for one, i was mealy commenting on the lack of venting issues i had.  its increasingly common for makers to use dynamics, not vent them to get more isolation and end up giving nothing but driver flex, these did none of that.

You can also get them from Frogbeats and mp4nation.  Ebay too, I think.

 

Beware that mp4nation takes weeks to ship stuff to you though.

damn whys that? im looking at stuff at the $40 range. i have on my list

dunu tridents

brainwavz m1 (or proalpha?)

metrofi 220 or superfi4

klipsch s3 (i have s2, i think they use same driver so wouldnt really be an upgrade correct?)

Mp4nation ships from Hong Kong directly using hong kong post, and the shipping's free (or at least it's included in the cost of the earphone, so no extra surcharge).  Hong Kong Post sucks. :P

 

I can't comment on any of those other earphones though, because I haven't heard them.  But I've heard that the Brainwavz Betas are rather good in their price range.

It's $34.50 from MP4Nation and $29.70 from Audioshop. Both offer free registered shipping.

audio shop? can you link me i cant find it on search engine. and these guys are based out of hong kong, im seriously considereing just getting a klipsch s3 or a metrofi220 or superfi4.

 

i have a klipsch s2 and borrowing a friends backbeat titanium(metrofi200 i think) while they both sound good, you can tell the ue (well altec lansing i doubt they changed build tho) are higher quality. they isolate my drums much better with a dual flange tip, and the sound has a lot more clairty to it than the klipsch.

 

are the s3s a big step up from the s2, becuase the only thing i love about the klipsch is the look and comfort? only then will i consider a s3. dont get me wrong, they are amazing for what i paid, but 50$retial is less than the backbeats 80$retial and it does show. the backbeat titanium just sounds like it has more layers of sound than the klipsch s2, and i dont think this will change after they break in, as ive only had them for a week, but i dont think break in really changes sound to that extent (and i dont know how much better s2 isolation will be with dual flange, i doubt as high as backbeats) do the s3 isolate and sound much better than the s2s?

 

one problem is for some reason on the superfi4 there is no port, but on the backbeat pro, same headphone they put a port on the back. im drumming with these so wont this KILL the claimed -26 that the ue verison has? also does it sound better than the metrofi200(backbeat titanium)? i also listened to a friends pair of backbeat pros(superfi4) they didnt have the in your faceness of the backbeat titanium (metrofi200)'s low end. the bottem end is just right in my opinion. the clairty on both was comparable, but of coure the armature was a little better. i dont want to be void of that in your face low end! arent the pros supposed to sound better?? im willing to get the pros over the titaniums for 10$ extra, but is it even worth it?

 

and then theres the trident which i have to buy from hong kong and wait for, not be sure about warranty or just buy a backbeat titanium, pro or klipsch s3.

 

and i called logitech today they said they cover the old ultimate ear line, so i have 1 or 2 year i forget what is it is just in case the superfi4 die (which i see is a good amount for some reason?) and replace it with a comparable one of their new line. if anyone was wondering fyi

 

anyone that can help is GREATLY appreciated. thanks!

Hm, I don't think the Trident will be very good as a monitor for drums...doesn't really isolate enough.

 

What was the upper range of what you're willing to spend?

post #27 of 29

was hoping for 40, or 30 which are the backbeat pro and titanium prices. i was looking at a pink(lol) shure se115 but these things look huge! and theyre pink, but 50$ vs the other colors $80 or something price. 

 

if all else fails i will put ear muffs over the iems, so its really whatever on that. the backbeat titaniums with dual flange actually work just as good as my vic firth s1h1 isolation phones! im just saying the backbeat titanium(metrofi200) has better sound quality then the klipsch s2, and held out the sound better than the s2 are both like $30. i love the design of the klipsch s2 though, wish they sounded better!

 

what im wondering is why to my ears did the backbeat pros not sound as full as the cheaper, older metrofi200(backbeat titanium)? would the superfi4 (backbeat pro) even be considered an upgrade, i mean it is priced higher and newer..

 

do the klipsch s3 sound more layered than the s2 at all? they are rated at same isolation -18db. the backbeat titanium at -16 and pro at -26, but i dont see how this is possible when the ****heads cut out ports on the back of a balanced armature

How does the shipping from audioshop compare to the shipping from mp4nation?

Anyone have experience with it?
