I personally went the other way, instead of bass tracks I listened to Kings of Leon (320kbps) and it was one of the most amazing listening experiences I have ever had! Now I understand exactly why Future Sonics are known as the live performance monitoring specialists. I couldn't stop listening and actually listened to the entire album in one sitting...and I don't even listen to this genre very often.

 

The bass was so tight and controlled and amazingly natural, like I was at a KoL concert! The placement is the next thing that blew my mind. The lead singer was placed in the middle and upfront and the vocals were very intimate! Guitarists to the left and right and it sounded like the drums were slightly to the left and at the back of the group. The overall soundstage was not extremely wide but the depth was amazing! The seperation...mind blowing! I could close my eyes and picture where everything is on the stage and no one aspect was over-powering another.

Nice review, I got myself a set again to try out and ordered the Klipsch Oval tips. Hope I ordered the right size.

Cool. I would highly recommend giving the stock foams an extended run as I have not found a better tip for the Atrio's even though the eargels are a pretty good match.

I tried but I really dislike foam tips. They're not comfortable for me. I read the Klipsch Oval is the next best thing to the stock foam.

These sound very promising and for the price they look like a great option. I was curious if anyone that has listened to these has had the opportunity to listen to the Monster Turbine Gold Pro's and if so how the to compared to each other. I am trying to decide on a IEM to purchase hopefully this weekend.

 

Thanks

I haven't tried the ovals on non klipsch IEM's but if they feel like my S4's do when on this IEM then they should be very comfortable. I have used mine S4's for 10+ hours a day before with no complaints on comfort I'm just looking for better sounding IEM's now.

I can't remember if I auditioned the MT Gold or MT Copper but in any event, I much preferred the Future Sonics sound signature overall. Plus, the MT's didn't present as natural sounding bass as the Atrio's.

Just to confirm the ones you tested are these?

 

 

Thanks

I didn't test them, I actually bought them. It was the Monster that I auditioned and didn't purchase as I prefer the Atrio's presentation much more.

Are the ones I linked the Atrios you reviewed?

Bad news. The part of the earphones that includes the nozzles came apart a few days ago, and it's kinda dangling. I probably could do something with super glue, but I really don't want to keep these seeing that they might be faulty. I've sent Future Sonics an email, but I've received an automated message saying that many of them are at the NAMM show, so I have no response from them yet... I think I'll probably give them a call tomorrow and I'll update what's going to be happening to these earphones. Just a heads up for those who own these, since this could be an inherent build quality issue, although I'm not sure.

Sorry for your troubles but rest assured, FS will take care of you. Did it just fall off or was it an accident?

 

Interesting though...Atrio's are known for how robust they are. I have personally had several pairs with no build problems what so ever. I have never even read of any build quality issues, this is the first. Don't worry about it too much, FS will sort it out for you.

This happened when I was outside, just as I put it in my ears and was trying to insert it. The weather here has been quite dramatic, reaching -30 or below, so this might have had something to do with it.

-30? OMG that doesn't sound fun!!!

 

Makes me wonder if the temp does have something to do with it as -30 is below the temp range electronics manufacturers recommend...
