The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 287

These things are amazing. 

 

I have them running Skrillex's most intense tracks at max volume on my Sansa Clip+ overnight. I'l give them a much more in depth listen tomorrow.

As someone mentioned earlier, you can get much more expensive phones, say the Shure 535, TF 10's or ety 4Ps, and none of them do EVERYTHING perfectly-you may like the clarity of the Shure, the bounce/fun of the TF 10's, the unrivaled (in my limited experience) isolation and great midrange of the ety's, none of them does it all

 

 

 

I think this is partly subjective. Many of the 'top-tier' iems might lack something or the other, but its just finding the one which suits your taste better (rather than having an absolute perfect earphone) that makes one declare them to be the perfect earphones.

 

For me its the GH-ERC-DMS, its the perfect earphone for me. 

 

Just ordered the SONY MH1C(for 27 dollars). Can't wait!! 

 

with regards to its quality, the price is still justified ?

I remember trying them out the first time. I wasn't as impressed with them at first. They seemed a bit too warm almost a dark sound. One day of burn and I could tell these had a superior tuning than most cheapos. That was when I realized Clieos was onto something. .After the first night it was like the clouds were opening and the rays from the sun was peeking through. The sound started to show up. I was listening to them all day today. I played a big variety of my music. These things sound great for just about everything. I really didn't here any genre it couldn't handle. One of the most demanding music Genres I test out earphones with is Cubano Salsa. Some Celia Cruz.

 

Sound positioning. Excellent

Clarity speed and detail. Solid

Vocal range and emotion. Yup

dynamic percussion and sparkle..prat anyone? Check .

Justice to some of the most precise music in the world. Check. If these can handle Cuban Mambo and Salsa music with ease. It can handle anything..

That's exactly the point-it's the same thing I was saying. There is no "perfect" sound or piece of equipment, certainly better equipment refines things in many ways, but in the end it still comes down to which "flavor" headphone/preamp/speaker appeals to a particular listener. I happen to enjoy many flavors, don't like anything missing in the sound, muddy, etc., but can appreciate the various takes on good sound and have fun hearing and enjoying them.

Well, I actually just bought the MH1C's

I'm quite excited about these because:
1) They have been claimed to be great!

2) I am finally purchasing an earphone!!!!!!

The amount of contemplation, will be put to rest (FOR NOW!)

Haha

Hopefully they live up to the expectations!

Just wait a week or two :)

My local post office sure knows how to make me feel bad and good at the same time. I got a notice this morning to visit them where I was served with the news that my R1 is held at the customs, which means a 2 hour trip for me through traffic jam because of a $2 tax. Just PITA. The good news is that while I was there signing stuff they said that something just came in for me, so at least I have one new thing to play with

 

700

Edit: Damn, this mh1c is SMOOTH. I definitely see myself enjoying it a lot. One thing is sure though - no way in hell I'm using its stock tips. The suction is just insane - I'll have to do some tip rolling to find which tips sound the best but right off the bat the gr07's bi-flanges are better for me.

That's exactly what I'm doing. I hate suction seals.

So do you have any recommendations? I thought I liked the meelec bi-flanges the best until they just got stuck in my ears when I pulled the headphones out. It would have been nicer if the nozzles were longer.

I'm about to try my GR07 tipset.

post #4301 of 26793

I did the same - I think the GR07's bi-flanges and big stock tips are the best. The big vsonic stock tips give me a little bit of suction but the kind I like - not the kind where you pull out the nozzle and you find brains on it LOL

I'm using the mediums. No suction here.

 

Scratch that. The Meelec M6 biflanges are perfection.

Yeah, actually, the gr07's mediums are better - it will be either them or the bi-flanges. Well, I told you the m6's bi-flanges are good. The problem is my ear cannals are slightly narrower at the opening and the meelec bi-flanges like to get stuck in my ears. The strange thing is that the big m6's tri-flanges stay on the nozzle.

How long did it take you to buy some headphones, lol? How old are you by the way?

There was a post at some point with the Sony XBA3's at less than $200...anyone remember where?

Thanks
