Surprisingly they actually did very well on deep bass reproduction! I was pleasantly surprised!... Next, I pulled a Hawaii and hooked these ear buds into the E11... I turned on bass boost at 3/8 volume, and heard no distortion. Very interesting... I put them in my ears, took it off bass boost, and cranked it up to 8... Still NO distortion! They are insanely loud! They actually tickled my ear canals...

 

Price is a ....very questionable "indication" of sound quality...trust your ears. That's common sense but worth repeating. We sometimes doubt our ears because of a price tag. I've done that.

Well, I'm used to M55X's, and they are cheap as hell, but still beat any celebrity endorsed cans by a landslide. I tried sol republics, and they were better than beats studios for 100$ less, but they were not extremely good... I know that price doesn't equal good sound. I was just stating how cheap they were... The build on them was very plasticy, and didn't look very nicely built, but they probably can take quite the beating due to the ruggedness of the construction. Plus I didn't know if the guy knew anything about sound quality or not, seeing as how I just met him. That right there set my expectations fairly low... But nope. They turned out to be very nice sounding. About the same sound signature as the 55's actually. They apparently will not distort at uncomfortable listening volumes... For normal people, anyways! smily_headphones1.gif

A little looser on the bass though, compared to the 55's. Overall the best I've heard from ear buds in the range of 30-60$.

Wow, I might have to go buy a pair of these little things! Good sounding. Found my new basshead buds!... Now I just noticed on songs with many instrumental parts, it blends the sound sound together a little bit. Nothing serious. I don't know the model name on them tho... I'll have to find out... And sorry for six posts in a row... Got carried away. Treats male vocals quite well too! Even female vocals are quite nice.

For the price of dinner for 2 at TGI's....you can't really go wrong:biggrin:

I prefer the JVC's, but its getting a little tiring carrying around 3 Lbs of equipment everywhere... Mainly because the JVC's don't have the vocals be the main focus of the music. It basically just has instrumentals... I just decided to listen to down on the corner by CCR with the 55's, which I haven't done yet in the few months I've had them. Let me just say that the sound is extremely well defined. I can hear that weird sound of strings being plucked... I have been listening to WAY too much electronic music...

I lost my CKS77 on a work trip in Orlando :(. Just ordered the Denon C300 urban ravers. Anyone know how they stack up vs the CKS77?  My goto cans are the M100s, but I tend to prefer IEM when I am taking the metro in the city.

The Urban Ravers sound very good. They have a really good bass and a good general sound signature, in my opinion. Their biggest drawback is fit. They are huge. I have a hard time getting a good fit because of that, and I still don't feel comfortable with them outside because of that. They're my indoors IEMs. But the sound is really good. I don't think you'll be disappointed about their sound, if you can get a good fit and if you can get them to stay securely in your ears. If you have medium sized ears, it should be little to no problems, but yeah, you'll know when they arrive. I really have little to complain about concerning their sound quality. Deep, clean, slamming bass, with good mids and highs.

 

I think gelocks said he uses them regularly as well.

 

You can see them in my signature as one of my favorites. :ksc75smile:

Cool, I am sure the bass will be amazing. Is the sound signature bright or dark?

They say the c300 sounds like an iem version of the q40, the graph looms that way as well.

I'd say they have an even bigger bass feeling... but I'd be taking out of memory. And yes, I do use the C300 at least more than my Shure SE215s (that isn't saying much though... I'm a full over ear guy after all ;-) ).

C300 has slightly less warmth, more extended treble and lots more sub-bass. Mids are neither forward, nor recessed. As gelocks said fit is usually the biggest issue- their sound is excellent, especially for the price. I'd say they're some of the best basshead IEMs around.

For some reason I never felt IEMs could produce bigger bass than a full-sized can. This is also from my past experiences with IEMs, honestly I have never heard an IEM that sounds good (mainly because I've always bought cheap ones). They were always lacking in the bass, with an overly forward midrange and harsh treble.

In my experience if you are just talking about bass quantity. I seem to get more from IEM than over ear cans.

Just got the Sennheiser HD8 DJ. Oh my god. They are freaking awesome. Bass hits extremely hard, but it's not sloppy like my Custom One Pros (something I wouldn't have said before I got them).

 

These things are wicked!
