Yamaha EPH-100 - Page 261

post #3901 of 4531

This is my first post and i'm a massive audio noob and I'm caught in a pretty big dilemma. I mainly listen to EDM (Trance, progressive, deep house, DnB) and occasionally some Hip Hop (kendrick, ASAP). From what I've read the EPH-100 seems to be one of the best for my type of music but I've also come across the Audio Technica CKS77X which from what i've read, is really bassy and good for EDM. I'm in Australia and the best price for the CKS77X is $95 and $121 for the EPH-100. So just wondering which one is of better value?

 

Mind you, i'm currently using the Beats Solo and i''m also wondering if these two IEMs would be a significant upgrade?

 

Thanks

I've heard just a bit the beats solo (during a demo) , and I'd think the eph-100 would be more rewarding for general use. As the beat solo seem mainly marketed for hip hop, you might prefer them for that particular genre (emphasized mid bass, recessed highs) . I  usually don't listen to hip hop with the eph100.

I  don't know for the CKS77X, but I  can say that the eph100 have an overall  "well rounded" sound signature, and just have enough bass for the "bass lovers". For me,  It's almost a no-brainer buy, if you don't take in account what people call "moisture issue" (actually the ear wax seems to infiltrate them).

I'm pleased with my pair. They are just clear and natural sounding

Yup I'd definitely recommend the EPH100 for your genres, I listen to a lot of EDM myself and these are brilliant for those types of genres.

I actually don't really like my beats solo at all, it just sounds very muddled and not very detailed and kinda sucks for EDM overall. Would you say the eph100 destroys the beats in this area given the superb imaging (from what i've read) and overall quality of sound it has?

 

Thanks for the reply.

When I last listened to the solo I found them to be utter crap. The bass is muddy and there is no sub bass whatsoever. The mids are practically nonexistent and there is no imaging or clarity. The EPH have impactful, deep yet clear bass, present and unveiled MIDs and sizzling metallic trebles. Perfect for EDM.

PS: I personally found this track to be superb on the 100s.

I  would have said , that they sound perhaps like a 30$ headphone, with a particular sound signature and design that might seduce the mass. It's the ridiculous built quality, that  gives mostly the  feeling   that's it's  a rip-off (some of the beats solo in demo, were broken, giving a clear warning to customers " do not buy").

Otherwise I  would compare this to the junk food of Mac Donald;  you know it's far from being best food, but you might still be attracted by the marketing.

Well I  must mention pryda , they sound great with anything from pryda (nickname for Eric Prydz).

That's a rather interesting analogy, the beats are very bad for their price and TBH I think even for very much cheaper you can get better sound. Also the only song I've really listened to of Prydz is Pjanoo, I have one of his albums, but I haven't really found time to properly listen to it...

Also artists like Mark Sixma, W&W, Markus Schulz, and even Hard style people like Headhunterz and The Pitcher sound awesome on these. The trebles really bring out the euphoric leads.

Do anyone experience some metal knocking against each other noise (goes like kik) on the left bud when playing bass heavy song?

Never

Damn, am still in a dilemma over the RE-400s and the EPH-100s cause the EPH-100s are apparently more musical, and I would love to have that like the JVC FXT-90s that I used to have :/

After owning this eph100 for 1 week,1day. Got to say really like the sound of this iem. I burn in them by playing songs using my phone while i was asleep for around 6-8 hour then stop for 3-5 hour then repeat the process.The thing i like the most on this iem is the instrument separation and the punchy bass.  Compared to my sony MDR310SL its bass is pretty bloated. Not sure am i having a fake one or a real one, here are some photo for you guys to check it our.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/6qmcnbshxr8qre7/DSC_1209.jpg This is the front of the box. The set i got is imported from China. From actonchina, went to their site seems pretty legit.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2bj49nb6iow0zms/DSC_1207.jpg This is the back of the box,as you can notice its from china most of the wording was chinese. In the middle right side of the photo you can see the acton sticker. Below there which was a serial number, that let you check whether is official or not. So i did scratch it and input the code on their site which said i got an official set blah blah. But im still not convinced as the main problem now is that, the logo on my left side of the iem is kinda tilted, I know im being picky but just worried that i got the counterfeit. 
Here is the picture about the logo thingy.

As you can noticed the left one isn't  really align to the strain relief cable. Kinda tilted to the right side though. Can anyone verify this? I have check on this page,that most of the fake have a pretty soft ear tips,mine was hard which is the real one i think.

+1, exactly never, you are playing them too loud or they are damaged, or the recording has weird noises in it.
post #3915 of 4531

The volume is just on the normal listening level, 5/14 for iem,If im using headphone that would be 7-8/14. Guess probably just in the recording as it happen with 2 song which was a mp3 320kbps.
