Future Sonics Atrio MG7 Review and Appreciation thread - Page 76

post #1126 of 1202
Wow that was amazing.

I once strongly considered getting softerwear sleeves and got full customs instead. Great decision. The Atrios are fantastic universals, especially for the price, but if you're going to bother with getting impressions for a custom fit then you should just go full customs. There difference is quite pronounced imo.

@ eke2k6

 

Nice one. I kinda figured someone was going to make that joke.

 

@Bazirker

 

I would, if I had $900 to drop on earbuds right now.

 

As it stands, I have just over $100, just enough to cover the atrios. Hovever, due to an issue with a warranty claim with my existing buds (the company making them discontinued that model), they're sending me a pair of over ears to replace my earbuds (hence the reason I'm getting the atrios in the first place), so I can sell my Crossfades for some extra cash, which may/may not put me right into the price range of the softerwear sleeves.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the Atrios.

 

No softerwear sleeves just yet.

 

I got them in blue, since they were apparently out of black.

 

Can't wait to actually try them out!

I have been waiting for some time for the black ones to be back on stock, but today I lost patience and ordered the blue ones. :P Does anyone know whether they will restock the black ones soon? I would be sooooo disappointed if my earphones arrive and see the website having the black ones back.

If you go to the actual Future Sonics site, it appears that the atrios are actually discontinued.

 

My guess is that the blacks will never be back in stock. That's just me, though.

That's very interesting. I wonder if they have a new design coming out soon?

I doubt it. Something tells me that future sonics strictly wants to focus on CIEMs now.

UPDATE: Atrio.me just changed my order status from awaiting fulfillment to Shipped. Due to future sonics appearing to have discontinued the Atrio, I would personally recommend that anyone that's on the fence about purchasing go ahead and purchase now, before it's too late.

I know for a fact that Future Sonics is still making Atrios!

Their Ciem side is doing very, very well with stage musicians as well, but they haven't forgotten Atrios.

Huh.

Well, apparently, to Atrio.me's shipping department, "Awaiting fulfillment" means "on it's way", and "shipped" means "on your doorstep".

I'm currently auditioning the different eartips. The sub bass is definitely incredibly strong in this IEM. It's for-sure an electronic headphone, with a lot of oomph in the sound signature. I'm not a huge fan of their performance with metal and rock, but for electronic genres, they really shine.

EDIT:
The foam seems to be the best tip for me, I hate the silicon tips so far (They really don't feel that great, and the sound signature is really terrible with them, IMO)

Now I'm debating between using the creme or black foams. Such a tough decision.

From my past experience, the foam tips were the most comfortable, the cremes winning out of the stock tips.  However, the double flange silicone sounded the best to me when properly inserted which of course means shoving them way deep into your ear canal, as double/triple flange tips are meant to do.  That was not going to fly with me haha.  I had basically the same impressions as you regarding preferred genres.  If you want go take comfort/sound one step further, the Comply Ts-100 were my favorite tips for these - sounded slightly better than the cremes, closer to the silicone tips...and they looked the nicest cool.gif

There's a whole thread somewhere round here about what tips work best with the Atrios :-)

@ modulor

 

I had pretty much settled on the Black (Fine) eartips, thanks for adding another into the mix! :P

 

Have you, by any chance, tried any of Comply's other eartips? Specifically, the P-100, TSX-100, or T-100?

I almost got the P series before I got the Ts, but I think the Ts were the perfect choice with these.  Very comfy as advertised, and isolated very well.  I think the P series are said to isolate a bit better, but I think they are more narrow and aim for a deeper fit. I typically use sony hybrid tips on my GR07, isolates well enough without completely sealing out all sounds, which is good because in the city you want to hear some outside sounds for safety. However, for long trips where I may fall asleep and want absolute isolation (airplanes, etc.) I like to use the Ts-200, primarily with my good experience using the Ts-100 on the MG7 biggrin.gif Also, the "x" indicates that there is a built in filter, which I'd say is only necessary if you have super waxy ears.

everyones ears are different comfort is very subjective, in terms of changing the sound most of the time its very very minor

post #1140 of 1202
My experience is that the changes in sound are equal to or greater than the changes in comfort with the Atrios and various tips.

Totally agree though, different things work for different people.
