Headphones.com Creative Aurvana In Ear 3 giveaway Part 2!!!!! - Page 4

post #46 of 55

Personally, i research everything to death before i buy cause i don't have ca$h to spend most of the time, so i make sure its well spent. I listen to and make RnB and Hip-Hop and love my bass but need clarity, so when i heard Sleek-Audio's SA-1's in person, i was sold. No other compared personally for me. The aesthetics, the kleer bundle, the tuning tips, everything was superb for me, and didn’t break my somewhat empty bank. By bank I mean jar. I have recommended these buds to everyone I know, cause for the $55 I got them for, they are liquid gold. There are probably better sounding ones out there, but personally the unique sound of these just appeals to me. I create my music with these, but monitor across other sources, but I am lost if I try to initially create without these buds. I’m hooked.

In the $150 price range, the best IEMS I have heard are the JVC-FXT90 and Brainwavz B-2. The FXT-90, though hard to get outside of Japan, compete with dynamics well above their pricerange, while the B2s are near the level of my Shure SE425s for about half the price. I would be really interested to see how the Creative3 would stack up against those 2!

My Sony MDR-NC60 headphones (I got them on sale, so they were less than $150).

 

My first time listening to them was better than my first time having sex.

 

That is all.

 

edit: just realized that you're asking for IEMs, so... I'm just going to take a second to write up something new...

 

The best IEMs I've ever used was an Altec Lansing Backbeat Pro UHP606, because before that the only IEMs I had ever owned/listened to were a pair of Skullcandy FMJ, and the difference in audio quality was simply night and day (albeit not as big a difference as when I first got my Sony headphones), and it just simply sounded amazing. So far those are the only two IEMs that I’ve owned or listened to.

Well I probably won't win the sweepstakes, I look forward to reading about how they compare to other earphones at the $150 price point. Thank you once again Headphones.com for hosting this sweepstakes. It is very generous of you to offer such an opportunity to us Head-Fiers.

OK,

 

We have voted!!!!!

 

And the winner is:

 

In the $150 and under category, no earphone has quite filled my ears with auditory nirvana quite like my HiFiMan RE-262s. Each note these things present is done with such grace and poise that it makes me question why on Earth HiFiMan is selling them for such little money. These are not analytical or focused on neutrality and it doesn't have to be. The polite but weighty bass response, the wide and deep sound stage, the delicate and non-fatiguing highs and, above all, the buttery smooth mids are unlike anything I've ever heard in an IEM thus far.

 

Okay, you know what? Forget all the audiophile-ese. These are an exceptional pair of IEMs that bring a smile to my face every time I listen to them. The RE-262s are just Hi-Fi, man.

 

And I'll see myself out for that terrible pun.

There were some serious contenders, and a few office "fights" but we finally agreed upon this post as our winner

 

Congratulations!!!!
