Doctorjazz, sorry to hear about your bad audio karma recently!   i had 3K$ marantz cd player stop reading discs also in my main system!

I think its a conspiracy to get us to upgrade to more GEEK OUT AND UP stuff!  of course the cats sleeping on the heat vents may have

something to do with it.  someone should write an essay on AUDIO KARMA  and how to please the audio gods for equipment longlivity.

Hope that the rest of your equipment makes it through the spring.....

I havent really found a budget option that was the whole package though. Ive been quite a few through this thread, I just dont post about it every time I buy one.

 

Budget Killer is a subjective thing which is going to mean different things to different people.  Within my budget, I will gladly pay more to eek out 10% more, 5% more.   And its not strictly sound for me, its also the fit, cable, aesthetics, ease of warranty replacement if needed, etc.

I totally understand your point. Personally, I don't really judge an IEM in regard to aesthetics and fit because I have learned that those two factors can differ from one user to another. Hence I don't discuss them that much in my reviews...

I currently have 3 which I rate as follows: Zero audio carbo basso > Vsonic VSD1 > Sony XBA3 (blasphemy perhaps?)

The VSD1's shell is completely broken and I just couldn't fix it.
The Bassos have driver-flex and one side is usually softer than the other now.
I'm left with the XBA3 but I just feel like it's missing something =(

I'm not a bass head but I do prefer having it in good quantity and quality. I listen to a mix of music, usually instrumental/classical tracks.
I prefer fun, warm, non-fatiguing IEMs that have a big sound stage.
Comfort, easy fitting and no micro-phonics are important.

Though my budget is around $120, I was looking at the Zero audio carbo tenore and the Audio Technica IM70.
Open to other suggestions of course.
If you are interested in the R3 I'd be willing to sell mine if the price is right wink.gif

Re the Geek out 750 i just received.  Thanks DS for your initial impressions vis a vis the DX90! excellent points!
Right out of the box I'm impressed with the liveliness of the signal (class A shines) and the dynamics of the unit.
Tone and tetures are good, but serious burn in obviously still needed as bass is smeared and soundstage
a bit foggy.  Compared to custom MHDT NOS dac through Vali amp, its digital sounding and has less decay
of tones and instruments (more decay means to to me more analogue sounding), and bright.  but shows great
promise and, i hate to say it, worth the four month wait for delivery.  Great engineering job.
Cant wait to hear it after some serious burn in!!!

Turns out I did not get a fake but I received a store demo (confirmed with Monster). They're offering me a $20 partial refund for the mistake of their associate. smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks everyone for the replies and recommendations! 

Really appreciate it :D

 

I would consider the R3 but as d marc0 said, they may not fit my criteria for comfort, easy fit and no microphonics ;)

Might be just me but those twins look like run of the mill strippers to me. They might be interesting to someone coz they are twins but I see a bunch of girls that look exactly like that in the night club ever single time and that makes me sad but I guess that's the type some men are after and they all visit the plastic surgeon to make them look all the same - like slightly above average hookers.
