Moreover it can be dangerous to not hear sound outside, if you are doing jogging near roads.

 

Yeah, after my experience with the EPH-100 I've decided to buy another pair for workouts. I don't like the back-of-the-head design of the PMX680 so I'm going to go for the CX680 instead.

Please elaborate a little on your answer.

At least say which pair of IEMs is significantly superior to the other one, that made you write "No comparison!"

Really ? That's the main reason I  like the pmx680, I  found it pretty convenient for jogging.

You can move a lot, and the pmx680 would never fall.

I  have also the ksc75 for jogging, I  like better their mids & highs, but I  enjoy more the bass on the pmx680.

The ksc75 pinch my ears, that's not very comfy, but they stay in place too..

Ichi, i got mine from guitar guitar. i know the manager there but he is off on holiday, i can ask him next week to check stock sold and returned along with if there is anything up with batch numbers.  This does suck and I do have a bit of fear that if mine goes I have no idea what to replace them with, I have had a ton of Iem's in the past 6 years and these are so unique and great sounding.  I may pick up a pair of Auriosonics just in case but i was hoping i was done also with the eph.  That said over 500hours on mine and not a problem :)

The EPH-100 with the foam tips are really nice! They're very comfortable now, and a real pleasure to use. They were the IEM I used every day during my holiday, along with the Clip+... smile.gif

Here is the EQ curve I use with EPH-100.

 

Then I finish off by using the plugin TB EZQ to increase the clarity some what.

I only read the last 3 pages and I got a little worried. I was really convinced to get these and not the X10i's as I'm switching to Android again and the buttons wouldn't work anyway. Reading about the defects worries me since I will not deal with sending it back and waiting weeks for them to come back.

See this is exactly what i was worried about, but in reality (trying to count back) the issue is with under or around 10 people.  Many users have used them every day for ages without issue as have I (in more extreme circumstances than most i would guess).  Ultimatley many phones have issues from time to time and it appears the eph is no different, i trust implicity the views of ichiban and h20fidelity they seem like stand up guys and they are both fond of the eph's sound, its a real shame they have had issues but between us and others on this thread  we have been unable to pinpoint what exactly is causing the issue for them.

 

I think its obvious from my past posts that eph-100 is my favourite iem of all time and would reccommend it to anyone.

I'd highly recommend the EPH-100s, don't let my unfortunate events deter you from getting them. It's just that the other 2 people I've recommended it to have now got the same problem as well. 

 

Sound quality wise, they are one of the best and if you're like me - dislike over-the-ear designs. You really don't have much of a choice, it's either these, Vsonic GR01 or Klipsch X10i. 

 

Just hope you don't run into the same problems that I have lol, you'll get fairly annoyed like I did as you can see a few pages back - especially when you get 2 different pairs with identical issues.

While I'd love to recommend them, I think they're dodgey. tongue_smile.gif

They sound great, bass is powerful, mid range is well detailed and the separation is very decent for an IEM in this price range. For a while I thought I'd found the perfect IEM, in the real world I would of happily stopped here with EPH. Only because of Head-fi's ways did I venture further onwards into the unknown. Since my pair let us down I've yet to use them again bare the quick test I did. I'm very upfront about something, If it stuffs up I usually don't want to know about it any longer.

Give them a try freemini, it's just best you guy's know our experiences.

Ill have some info in a few days, it wont be definitive or anything but will put a little perspective in it.

 

Glad if anything does happen with mine theres the 2 year warranty :D peace of mind.

I'm actually using the X10's atm while I wait for the EPH-100's to come back in stock. The X10's are great and I'm gonna keep them, but I'd rather have my 100's back. I'll more than likely swap here and there as the x10 are easier to cram into the canal. But being able to distinguish the L/R on the X is what's killing me. Try them on amazon, they have a great return policy and you can easily send them back.

 

Side note: You can get the X10 version without the "i" on amazon and they don't have the remote. --> Link here <--

I have been using a pair of Brainwavz M2 for the last 6 months that unfortunately broke down the other day. Would the Yamaha EPH-100s be a good replacement/upgrade? I loved everything about my M2s, except for the questionable cable quality. Where is the cheapest place to buy these IEM:s as of today with world wide shipping?

You can purchase them through audioaffair. I do believe they will be a fairly noticeable upgrade to Brainwavz M2.


So.... I had another listen to my EPH-100 tonight, I couldn't make them fault after an hour of listening. I hope they don't do it again because after using them this evening I remember what I loved about them. The separation and soundstage depth, most of all that smoothness. The liquid vocals still impress me, bass quantity is welcome over GR07 and TF10 for a change. And I admit I'm hearing micro detailing with these that's otherwise partially hidden with GR07.

I'll keep them plugged in on/off over the next few days, see what happens..

Those micro details missing on the GR07 compared to the EPH100 are likely stuff from 9k-20k, very high treble. The EPH100 is gorgeous in those regions. Too bad the midhighs are uneven though.
