The discovery thread.! NEW dweaver's take Pioneer DJE1500 PG 1710! sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG... - Page 182

post #2716 of 25935

Just got these in today.  Way more comfortable than the EX1000's but definitely not the same sound sig.  These are bassy but not like the CKS77's.  The bass on these are deep but doesn't have the impact like the S77's do.  Probably need lots of burn to get the ideal sound.  So far the stage is huge and orchestra music sounds really good.  Threw some dub on and I don't get the same impact as I did with the S77's.  Pretty though.

Very good.  They did a good job tuning these.  Vocals sound good, not too forward but definitely not recessed.  Treble is smooth, no sign of sibilance.  Not on the level of detail the JVC FXD series.  These are for sure bass cannons.  The bass sort of reminds me of the Aurisonics ASG 1.2's.  No mid bass hump, deep sub-bass.  Listening to Nas-Cherry Wine and Amy Winehouse's voice sounds fantastic.

Danny I am greatful to you my friend. I think more guys will be able to check them out now. I am interested as well but I had to slow down on the earphone purchases but I will eventually own one of these for certain. Those look too nice. Lol! It got me at Extra Bass. But the thought of a more refined XB41EX. basshead.gif

I've never owned any Sony earphones before except the EX1000's, so I can't compare them to any but I did own the XB500, 700 and 1000 headphones and these earphones are somewhat similar to the XB1000's with better mids.  I really do enjoy them and it's a bass lovers delight.

I knew I saw a post about them somewhere so I've been keeping my eye on the release date.  I purchased them from an ebay seller that I purchased the FXD80's from.  Sakurahijiri is the seller.  Not the cheapest but his service is fantastic.  Ordered early am on the 22nd and received on the 24th.  He includes free candies and teas too.

Man, you will love the Sony's.  I am in bass bliss with these.  I tried all 3 JVC FXD's and they sounded bass thin after the Sony's.  It might be the best big bass I've heard in an iem.  Just drops deep and rumbles.  The soundstage is massive but it's soooo good.  The FXD80's and 60's aren't so bad compared but the 70's just sounded compressed after hearing the Sony's.  After the comparisons with the JVC's, the treble on the Sony's are not bad at all.  There is plenty of sparkle and I still think the vocals are very good also.  I have around 20 hours on them now.  These rank pretty high boys and girls.  

 

Dsnuts, really nice of you to change up the title of the thread.  Quite the unselfish, good guy.

Hey last time I checked, this is indeed the discovery thread no? Guys that post new impressions on my thread with pics get a title. Especially nice looking new Sony dynamics with the words extra bass on the packaging. I just spent a grip of cash on a new Alienware  Laptop I just bought otherwise I would be all over these. I will wait a bit before I order one but I will eventually get one. In the mean while run with it Danny, these earphones seem like a very nice high end bass earphones. Perhaps these will be the upgrade to the CKS77 and the FX3X,. Which is what I am looking for..

 

Nvm. I just bought a pair. Need some new bass earphones with wide stage. 16mm drivers! I am all over them!

I hope these are better than my previously owned xb1000 or i will be very disappointed. The problem with the xb1000 was the recessed mids and screechy treble. The bass though was just pure deep pounding that gives me a good headache

How come all the JVC and Sony in this thread are available only in China or Japan? Are they never going to be imported and distributed in the US?
