I have these IEM's and I found that the comply tips create a good seal.

The only proof I can get at this point is if someone has the SoundMagic E30 and can compare them with the monoprice and tell me what they think. I'm saying E30 because I used to consider them pretty light on bass but the monoprice is way worse to me.

If I have a bad seal I don't know how to solve it, every tip I tried even triple-flange ones just make things worse. I never had these problems, everything that I owned just fit at first use :\

This thread is getting out of hand, to the point where I think a guide has to be made...

Hello everybody, new user here.  These headphones are actually the sole reason behind me finding and registering on this great forum.

 

I've ordered and received a pair of Monoprice 8320 from Amazon, as I needed a new set of headphones at a time. 

 

I plugged them in, and was pretty impressed with the sound, especially the bass, as most of you are experiencing.  The first thing I listened in them, was a movie actually,  the new   "Dredd" movie.  It has  a very punchy soundtrack and the headphones were absolute joy in this regard.

 

I then proceeded to "burn" them with pink noise generator, found at this link, for about 12 hours or so.  

http://playnoise.com/

 

So a few days later, I was still listening to them, and I usually watch movies or shows on my phone while commuting.  Because of that,  I haven't really noticed anything for a while.


Then I started noticing that the bass was completely gone. That  "oomph" I experienced, wasn't there anymore.  

 

For a comparison, I loaded "Dredd" one more time, and yes, the headphones are not producing any bass anymore.  

 

I noticed that the black "screens" on the end of the tips were gone, could this be the reason?

 

I've been using a custom foam plug, right from the start, so the plug hasn't changed, and it fits very snug in my ear, and isolates all the outside noise.



Could I have damaged the headphones by "burning" them, or could it have been just a defective set that wen bad on me in just a few days?

 

I really liked the initial sound of these, so I ordered two more pairs from Monoprice itself. While I'm waiting for them to arrive, any suggestions on why the current set would lose all of its "oomph"?

Can you measure the length of the double flanged tip barrel?
I'm wondering if my image S4 double flange tips will work. I'd rather not experiment chopping them up unless I have to
Also do you recommend any specific tips for this mod, over the ones you already tried?
im definitely going to try this mod out when i get a chance. bookmarked for a later date...

You heard a "oomph" with these? Wow then I must have a defective one..

If you were burning in at really high volume, than sure, it could damage them. Burning in does change the sound signature, but usually for the better and certainly not that dramatically. If you're still getting the same seal you had before (sometime you get a great seal one use and later they don't seal as well) and burned at a reasonable volume, its probably just a defective pair.

 

That being said, welcome to Head-Fi. Sorry about your wallet.

Luckily they fit me fine and I am enjoying them immensely. Detailed with a very good soundstage. I would pay $30 dollars for these and still think they are a bargain. The frequency response graph is quite impressive as well. I have over a dozen pair of headphones and am reaching for these while my other  more expensive pairs are collecting dust. 

After finally getting a pair of these my first impression is to agree. These are excellent. 

 

It's cool how these cheap iems are achieving great sound quality by doing simple things. I would assume the great soundstage and detail comes from being just a big driver (common in buds) in big airy housing with in-ear insertion. Just like how the 3580s get that great bass by being a tiny housing with no ventilation.

Actually, the small housing and lack of back venting both count AGAINST big bass, and the presence of front venting (take off the 3580 eartips and you'd see a small hole) should further hinder bass performance. And yet they still do so great... I'm still at a loss for an explanation for them. confused.gif
