Noones got the cash to do a multi-tier comparison on the customs cos that's blowing the budget like WAY..
I'm pretty sure Joker has one or something
I listen to alternative stuff, electronic, and used to be listening to house/trance but since the SM3s i've stopped listening to the latter genre, maybe cos of the loss in punchy bass
When I think of my Miracles (compared to other IEM's and headphones) three factors come into mind.
1) tight bass
2) 'neutral' sound (come now it's really all just preference)
3) build quality
I listen to mostly pop/rock/jazz/classical/orchestra/house... and basically just anything else that catches my fancy.
For bass, I would have to say that it's perfect - and not just for music.
For example. The other day, I was playing a thriller/horror game, and all was quiet. That is until something attacked me - at which point there was a slight rumbling in the bass, which definitely shook me to my bones. It was more than a 'omgthesuddenmusicstartledme' moment. It was legitimately because of the rumble that I felt so shocked - a deeeeep rolling. And that's when I knew for sure that my Miracles were all that they claimed to be (in terms of bass at least).
As or sound, I can't say much except that it's good. Really, sound is all preference. You could love the sound signature of a Plantronics headset for all I know.
Build quality wise - be careful with your impressions. I have ONE regret out of all the steps to purchase my Miracle, and it concerns the impressions.
Let me explain
Sure enough, come impression day I walk into the audiologist and sit down into his chair. We talk a bit and then he mixes the putty and starts injecting it into my ear - all good so far.
While he's injecting the putty into my ear, I'm sitting rigorously in my chair - not moving, with the 'mouth piece' inside of my mouth. - Still good.
A couple of minutes later, the audiologist carefully removes my mould - and says "These are great". Of course, I looked over them (didn't really know what I was doing) and they indeed looked perfect.
So I send them off, then a few months later the Miracles arrive in the mail. I put them in - PERFECT FIT, FANTASTIC SEAL
Then the next day, I put in my Miracles and go for a jog. But wait. What is this? Why is the seal so sloppy?
It was only after a bit of thinking that I figured it out.
When you're sitting in the audiologist chair - you're natural tendency is to learn forward. When one sits in a chair to actually do something - it's unnatural to lean back.
THUS, the moulds in my ear took the shape gravity bestowed upon them - to create a seal when I'm sitting in a chair. So whenever I stand up, the seal is partially broken (a bit annoying)
Just my story and something that I think you should be wary of.
If there are discounts for remoulds in this special offer thing - I'll consider taking it.,
