Yamaha EPH-100 - Page 200

post #2986 of 4147
Thread Starter 

Yes that is a bit odd. It happened once before and then it recovered somehow. I don´t recall which driver it was loosing signal at that time.  I got a replacement pair now so am up and running.

 

I wonder how long the average iems last. There is a lot of crap that can happen to the cables mainly if you use it as a portable. As for moist I would assume iems are designed to withstand water?

That is a quote from a the colorfly c3 review by stozzer123 and it really got my attention. 

Any help would be much appreciated 

Hi! wink.gif

The problem was indeed a channel imbalance people have been experiencing with EPH-100, if you read through the thread between pages 100 - 200 many members have had an error occur where one side drops out randomly, we're not sure why they do it, we never found an answer, the best we could guess was a moisture related problem or condensation because of the aluminium housings. Some members never had it occur and others went through a few pairs with misfortune.

I see. Hopefully I don't have this problem. I sweat quite easily but since i'm not going to be using these IEMs as my portables, I don't think it shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for all the responses! Gotta say though, since I've found head-fi, my wallet has gotten quite thin. I have the Sony XBA1s currently, with the VSonic GR02 BE and the Yamaha EPH-100 on the way. Apparently I can't just find a replacement for my stock iBuds tongue_smile.gif

Are you assuming that this problem won't happen to xProvidence's pair, because of your good experience with your pair and because this just happened to a minority here?

I have to say that I had zero problems with my pair, and I've been using them daily for almost 6 months now... smile.gif

No problems here too!

And it's a great choice, as I use mine daily on my walk to work and back, and they're great! They sound great, have a great build quality, are tiny and I found they pair really well with my Rockboxed Clip+... beerchug.gif

Am I the only person who thinks the volumes a bit low un-amped on these things. I have a Macbook Pro circa-2006 I'm using and I installed the app Boom (try this out if you haven't) and it pretty much fixed the issue, it could be the headphone amp on the Macbook pro isn't that powerful also. 

 

I've also read a few posts about moisture buildup I hope I don't ruin these things by using them for the gym. I haven't wrecked a pair of headphones by using them at the gym.

 

I really like the separation of instruments in these headphones, do you guys really think the bass is loud on these? I don't. 

 

Can anyone recommend me a good pair of headphones that get really loud unamped, have amazing bass, and will work great at the gym paired with a Clip Zip?

I  think this app boom thing is bypassing the volume limitation of your mac book, by applying loudness compression.

The eph-100 have lot of bass, but still sounds natural. If you want over-emphasized bass , you may use an eq, or switch to an other headphone.

I'm not sure what kind of "loud" bass you are looking  for, i.e is there a problem with the overall volume, or you just want to explode your head with some massive bass.

For some reason EPH-100 totally agree with Clip+ My findings are the same.

From the IEMs I tried so far with my RB Clip+, these EPH-100 are the ones I like the most! I'm not exactly sure why, but they pair wonderfully sonically and they're a great combo to use on the go!
