The Monoprice MP9927 PG 208.. MP8320 (MEP-933)..The $7.11 club.. - Page 167

I have both 8320 and ck700. Monoprice has better highs , mids and detail, but xkdun has fuller sound and much better comfort and fit.
And ck700 has driver flex and bad reliability. I suggest audiovtechnica ckm500 as an ultimate iem in bang for buck.

So you recommend the AT over both MP and XKDUNK?

Well the CKM500 cost $65 or so. But is worth the step up in price. If you want cheap than one of the ones you mention should be fine. If you want a nice upgrade in sound the CKM500 is an excellent earphone for the cost.

Oh dear, I didnt know they cost that much money! Ill have a thought about buying the Monoprices; I just bought some spare XKDUNKs because theyre that cheap.

Ckm500 is $58, but it sounds like hi-fi inear for about $400, has exellent comfort and build quality.

Which $400 IEM are you comparing it to?

Have you tried the VSONICs? I have been very impressed so far.

post #2499 of 4217
No havent tried any vsonic.

Would you say the MP are worth 3 XKDUNK earphones?

 

And, may I say the XKDUNKs are more ''fun'' earphones than the MP, which are more neutral sounding?

The MPs are pretty darn flat. Given that you describe the XKDUNK (which I cannot find on google, got a link?) are fun (aka likely v-shaped), the MPs will probably be flatter.

Both XKDUN CK-700 and monoprice 8320 isnt worth buying. Vsonic GR99 for example is better because it works.
Ck700 is unreliable, but 8320 uncomfortable.

Here's the link to the XKDUNKs: http://www.head-fi.org/t/579727/mysterious-focalprice-iems-amazing-impressions-and-comparisons-inside/150

Yes, while they sound pretty flat (only the treble and lowest bass ''slightly'' bumped) they do sound quite fun!

They are for on the go when the Sennheiser HD 205 II is too big, so they dont have to sound ''the best'', even though I find them to sound really good.

A pair of ''flat'' sounding IEMs would be great for longer time use (think of traveling, airplanes etc.),  which I believe the Monoprices are.

Comfort comes after sound quality in my book.

Technically 8320 sounds bit better, but sound signature on gr99 is better aka fuller.
I better pay $25 on iem which is comfy not $10 which sounds as good but is hard to use.
