I just returned from a trip to Mexico for work, during which, I spent over 12hrs on a bus. I figured this would be the perfect setting for my 8320. Indeed, it was for the right ear. But, oh the left ear! In order to get the nozzle a the correct angle to extend deep into my ear, I had to twist them far backwards, to the point that it was extremely painful. Also, upon getting a seal, the driver flex was so great that they would not play for an extended time. They are great IEMs, but not worth the price unless your ears are exactly the correct size and shape. I have, on occasion gotten a good fit, but it can take me about an hour to find it. I think it's time to trade in and trade up. Next up, probably the GR99. Unless anyone can suggest anything else.

Just got a pair of these babies.. absolutely floored by how clean they sound, and that's even before burn in!

That said, how many hours should I get on them?

How long do you guys burn in your iems before letting them rest?

They do sound great, I had to walk away, though as I could never get the left one to fit, the angle of the nozzle just didn't work with the angle of my ear.

I had 0 hours of burn-in on my pair. All the sonic changes (if any) were felt in the first few hours of use.

Probably, it's my ears getting used to the sound and awkward fit of these in ears. My ears have a tendency to reject in ears (or anything touching my ear canal), and the fit of these Monoprices didn't really help.

 

But hey, you can always experiment it yourself, eh? You never know what you'll find out.

Oh how I wish.

Funny how other sites are now 'rediscovering' these.

Well, I ran into 8320 the first time through Lifehacker, I got pretty excited, saw the 40$ delivery cost to Finland thought  "well.. what the hell" and ordered 50 to be re-sold at my web-store :P When they arrive, we Finns (and maybe all Europeans, do you think I should?) finally can get these with a decent price.

Fair enough, but they were always available from me, but i am sure you can undercut me etcetera.

Hi there!

 

I am really curious about these IEMs but to my bad I am located in germany and only shipping would cost me more than 30$.

Does anyone know how to get them here in Europe (Germany) withaout paying astronomous shipping prices!?

 

 

Thank you very much.

 

Greetings Ron!

Heh, no worries, I'm not here to do that. Would have probably got a test-pair from you myself, if I had noticed your sign. Aaaggh.. the pain of waiting is the worst!

Just got these. Been out of touch with headfi iems for awhile after all i had before were dead or lost.

 

These are mid-way through burn in process and i'm beginning to love them. I'm not even considering the price yet. I got them through a local guy who brought over for SGD$13. These are balanced. They sound similar to my RE0s from what i recall. (They lasted me a pathetic month, too expensive to ship back over to China) I don't think beginners will truly appreciate unless they've tried around IEMs way higher than this bracket range.

 

Sound

Not as detailed as Fischer Audio's DBA-02 and not as bass heavy as FA's Eterna.  

A class above Meelectronic's M6 which sound too digital and fake to me.

Slightly different from Brainwavz M2. (which are really good IEMs)

Similar sounding to RE0. (Mine pathetically broke after a month, which tells you a lot and it was too expensive to ship it over for warranty.)

 

Fit

These are big. You need to get use to it or else you will hate it. It already hurt my ear abit wearing it around the ear method cause the housing is large but wearing it straight down is more comfortable but subjected to more microphonics. I used Sony Hybrids on mine. The stock tips are terrible. I only received one btw.

 

Bottomline

I already love this mid burn in, a lot of detail for a $7 IEM. Usually you get muffled crap at this price, no details no bass. This is a nice surprise. Way out of its supposed price range.

Most probably they could rope in more cash for this if it came with accessories and a proper packaging. Well just get them, if not just chuck them. These are good but don't expect good QC though, the plastic tip were slightly defective but it doesn't interfere with the sound.

 

LOW BUDGET IEMS AT AUDIOPHILE SQ. 

(notice how i'm comparing all the great IEMs way above the price range of the monoprice 8320. that serves as a reminder to keep in check that price does not equate best sound quality. so take everything with a pinch of salt and try it. Planning to get a couple more since these are very affordable for a poor student like me.)
