The Monoprice MP9927 PG 208.. MP8320 (MEP-933)..The $7.11 club.. - Page 155

post #2311 of 4186

Just bought my parents a pair each. They love them. Getting friends hooked too.

Ok, I've had them a week or so now and they're burned in nicely and I really do like the sound after getting the tip situation worked out. But they really hurt my ears! I can only stand about 30 minutes. Oh Monoprice why do you hurt so bad and sound so good? blink.gif Oh, and I kinda like the looks. I pretend I'm a Transformer or a Borg or something.

I'm using some foamies that came with one of my other IEM's. Not sure which ones since I have quite a few.

post #2317 of 4186

Damn.. I really want to try these, but I can tell from pics that they'd never fit me.

 

I can only use IEMs with a straight barrel design that can insert deeply into my ear. I've never been able to keep a seal when IEMs fit shallowly - I end up with the infuriating problem of having to re-insert them every ten minutes or so.

 

It sucks, because these are very intriguing.

As I said a more than a few posts back now, don't waste your time and money. They look, feel, and sound like a $7.11 earphone. On the other hand, the SE215s look, feel, and sound far better than a pair of $99 IEMs. Therefore, I highly suggest that you save up for a new pair of SE215s and obviously dog training. :)

Thats a bit harsh, they are not comparable, $7.11 vs $99 earphone, the Shure's are 14 times more expensive, but i doubt they sound 14 times better.

They absolutely do not sound like 7 dollar iems. I'm willing to bet that all those who have been dismissing these did not get a good fit/seal, which is understandable. They are quite large.

I could not agree more.  These sound SO much better than the price.  I love mine.  I have tried a few more expensive IEMs, like the DUNU DN-12 "Trident" and they hang with those term of SQ.  (Though the DUNU has a better overall build quality).

 

Dollar Per Sound, nothing comes close to the 8320.  It is the best value out there.

I'll agree with you that the Monoprices are worth more than just $7.11... But what good is a headphone that no-one can wear, right? When the Monoprices don't seal, to me they sound no better than Apple's bundle earbuds (well, obviously). Achieving a seal is critical for in ears, and it's hard to get the Monoprices (with stock tips) to stay in my ears for any longer than 30 seconds. The Sony tips help to some degree, but different tips won't make the housing any smaller.

Ehh, still a good buy. If you're ordering cables from Monoprice, you really have little reason to not try these. But otherwise, the idea paying shipping to receive a pair earphones in a tiny plastic bag will likely put people off.

That's a bit of a stretch. People who can't get them to fit at all, despite trying different tips, are actually in the minority. If you go back through the rich history of this thread, the majority of impressions have been overly positive. I've heard and owned iems ranging from this 8320 to the FI-BA-SS, and this is the best value for sound you can get. Using the loudness eq preset on the iDevices makes the SQ skyrocket even further.

post #2324 of 4186

My point was; these earphones aren't much good to people who can't wear them. I can, and I like these quite a bit. 

post #2325 of 4186

Just ordered a pair to try. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get some tips? That seems to be a problem a lot of people are having.
