The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 775

Damn those sound good. I've always been a BA kinda guy(Owned BA200, TF10s) Which is why I was leaning towards the triple BA XBA-30. Asking for advice here was definitely a good idea. Now I'm torn between the GR07 BE and Phillips S2.... Doesn't help that I can't sample them before I buy either.

^ I feel ya' i too would like to audition those S2s before i take a chance on them.

1st of all, the housing on them was very poorly designed. I had to glue one of them back together after only a few weeks use.

 

2nd, the "breakaway" cable that comes with these? It sucks. It sucks badly. Mine quickly got to the point where the slightest "tug" on the cable would result in it falling out of the earpiece. I put tug in quotations because to be perfectly honest, by the end of my using them, I could jump a few times and get one of them to fall out (running would cause the same, and so would a long walk). So while that makes the cable easily replaceable if something happens to it, it is ultimately more annoying than it's worth. Especially given how much I babysat the things (The little case that came with them? I actually used it. Daily.)

 

Personally, I've moved on to the Brainwavz R1. Admittedly, I think my XWF600s had a slightly better sound in some areas, but the R1 is far less annoying.

 

Well after I orderd XWF600 I found this... so dont jump in like I did. I hope for difrent scenario with my pair but take this as a warning. Still hoping for better sound then mh1c.

What worries me is the semi-open back. Isolation will suffer, and I do enjoy cranking up the volume on certain trips, leaking is also a factor.

Are the Quadlon cable connectors any more reliable?

Haha, damn wayne you are a pain in my wallet's penny section.

Those H200 will make it to my ears eventually.

Btw you can find the tracklist for that show on my mixcloud page and in the Trance.fm thread.

Sorry 7S Cameron, but great sounding phones are meant to be shared. Oh, I could be selfish and keep the knowledge to myself, but then you guys will hate me when you find out later that I knew how good these earphones are years ago and didn't tell you. lol

You are right. I was thinking of the R1 double-flanges. But I have the RE-400's double-flanges on the TDK IE800, so my thoughts got all jumbled up. Never listen to music, type, and drink at the same time. Let this be a lesson to all of you! I'm just saying .... lol

 

And ahhh...yeah, this was a test! You passed!! Yeah, that's it! beerchug.gif

How would you compare the IE800 to say the GR07 BE or Philips Fidelio S2?

 I've never heard the GR07 BE (just have the original GR07) or the S2.

Ah, how do you like them? I see you put the IE800 in your sig so I'm intrigued.
