I've got the Brainwavz Beta, JVC Extreme Explosive and Cnets best bang for your buck M9p. These are all 4x more expensive and don't sound nearly as good as the 8320 IMO. From a sound to price ration, do you think they sound bad?

For the price. For the price, my socks aren't on but at the same time, they aren't a favorite IEM nor do they or are they preferred by me in anyway.

I made punches from pieces of copper tubes. Copper tubing about 1/4" diameter works great for punching holes in foam and is soft enough you can shape it with a metal fingernail file, knife, or most anything sharp.

One of the guys I work with made a punch out of an old antenna.

Can anyone comment on the sensitivity of these? For the moment 99% of my listening is thru my Samsung galaxy nexus and the power is somewhat underwhelming with that as the source. Not horrible but doesn't pump out that last 20 or so % of the volume I like to have when listening loud.

Get cheap hole punches here guy's, I think I was using 2.5mm for to create inner cores for my silicon tips.

See, that's the problem. "loud". These don't have any problem with any sources generaly but "loud" is the problem. Everyone's thoughts are different.

I find these IEMs to be great! I'd say they're the best I've owned (I haven't owned any worth more than $50). They sound great with my Galaxy S II as the source and with my PC (With XMPlay anyway; with iTunes 10 I have some odd sound). I just dropped mine while running in a rainstorm and found them on my way back. Of course they had been run over and they're soaking wet. To their credit they still work! The housings are broken though so I will be buying more. I just noticed on monoprice.com they have some new earbuds that haven't been reviewed yet. I'm looking at the Monoprice 9398. Anyone have any idea if these are worth it?

Thread Starter 

Actually both those are new since I started this thread. How they sound could be anyone's guess. All the previous ones sound like cheap made in china junk..But maybe one or both of these will be another good one.

My main in home system can run at levels close to 130 db in a 4000+ cubic feet room. I don't need that loud but somewhere over 100 db can be fine. I am not sure about the output power of the gnex. I play most music with some loss ur-55 and with the gnex it gets probably within 5 or so db of where I need to be. I have used them with an itouch and it had the output but really lacked clarity and seemed to add distortion at upper volumes.

The 8320 would be used now with the gnex until USB audio is made available and completely working with android 4.1 and I pick up a fiio e7 or when I buy a sansa clip or fuze, whichever comes first.

Ok I gotcha, I thought you were saying they were just bad in general.

Just going on the fact that they have the same/similar driver size and specs as the 8322's I bought, they probably will sound more like those and less like the 8320's which are much much better

8320 have a tad over 14mm drivers. These are 8 and 9mm.

What happened:

I got these half a year ago, burned in for 20 hours, hated them, gave up on it(never posted back as since I didn't have enough hours on it, I didnt' need to leave an improper opinion)

Left them in my drawer

 

And then my cousin came over for an extended stay....and she needed earphones...so very_evil_smiley.gif I gave them to her and she more or less used them 24/7 or as long as she was awake for 2 weeks straight

 

and so she gives them back and I throw them back in a pouch and into my audio drawer with all the earphones,amps, cables I don't use

 

Fast forward 1.5months later to 2 days ago. I thought why not. Took them out again. Took the tips off and threw them in a small pool of alcohol to clean for a day and took a swab of cotton(Q tip) and carefully using alcohol, cleaned the MP8320 and then put some Comply tips on them and put them into my desktop setup using a quarter inch to eigth inch adapter and bam....... ..... My socks shot off my legs.

 

 

 

Same story here,  bought them, didnt like them, fit was a pain tried all kind of tips, even bought 3 pairs more, same problem (2 where defective)  so they went to the drawer for months,  one day i saw them ,  saw some M9 double flange and i was like.." why not? i am not loosing nothing so les do it"   ,  hited play and BAAAAMMM.... DIRECT HIT... wowow. so good for 7 bucks... its a shame that i didnt had these tips 7 months ago.   Now i got better Iem`s, but i still apreciate what you can buy for 7 bucks.

 

its

Hmmmmm, these monoprice headphones have a driver that's nearly twice as big as the Image S4

Really considering purchasing these. But my Image S4 set has been my daily earbud for the past year. I love them to death
