I would gladly, But I'm almost on the opposite side of the globe (Georgia(not the US state Georgia :D )). thanks for the offer though, highly appreciated :). I could still borrow them, but shipping back is so expensive, that I'd rather just buy it from you :D

thanks for the suggestion. now that I'm not "afraid" of BA sound any more (what was I thinking :rolleyes:), I think I'll try getting my hands on some mid-fi single and/or dual BA iems. ATH IM02 seem like a really good variant, but their price is a little bit too much for me sadly...

No worries, and don't forget Zero Audio Singolo and Doppio as well they are really nice sounding phones

Speaking of Dual BA IEM, anyone have experience with Heir Audio 2.Ai? They are having a summer sale, and it's going for $150, my upper limit.

Their Triple BA is $224

I am very surprised with both the Doppios and the Singolos every time I hear them..

 

If you haven't and are curious about BA sound go for a Singolo. It does its own signature solid enough for great purchase.Both are completely different which makes owning both a good thing. The Singolos might lack a little in treble extension a touch but it is a solid sound.  I am surprised more buys haven't jumped on the Singolos.. Both are easily worth the purchase..If you guys heard my Doppios on my ICAN.. 

 

ICAN with low gain using DX90 line out. This combo..Just threw on the Doppios and turned on the 3D stage and Bass boost. DAMN!. I gotta say it was as close to a spiritual experience I have gotten just by listening to a new discovery..Doppios when properly amped sound too great for words. Geek out and this amp is just so awesome..I am finding myself quickly becoming a fan of IFI audio. Lol.

Ok I will just mention it. The Singolos kinda remind me of my IM03. A little brother of the IM03..I didn't realize this until I pulled them out to listen to for the first time in a while.

So Ds, what do you consider the best iem's to get at this time in these two categories: (a) "less expensive but still sound great and are amazing bang for buck" and (b) "they are amazingly good no matter how much they cost".

No pressure, but the world may depend on your answers :-)

This thread is just huge. The search feature doesn't stand a chance.

About a month or two ago (maybe longer) I saw a link from sfwalcer for Sony MH1 (or MH1C) for about $16.00 USD.

I had them in my eBay watch list but something tragic happened and it got deleted.


Does anyone know where I can find them still for that price? 

Edit: I found them. Google Fu paid off.

I thought about this last night and to me the best sound for the money right now probably goes to the CKR9 but the best refined SQ goes to the IM03..If you can squeeze an extra $100 for the IM03 without the upgraded cable it is about on par with the CKR9 in sound but with the upgraded cable it is on equal footing to the primo 8, some might actually prefer the IM03 more.

 

The only real negative on the CKR9 is that they have their standard microphonic cable but not a big deal.. The CKR9 for the price is the best value out of the recent AT offerings. I still prefer the CKR10, FX850, IM03 more over the CKR9 but the CKR9 does not loose out on SQ to these.. Some might even like the CKR9 over these. They are an excellent earphone and probably the best sounding for the $220 or so payed for a pair.

 

Though last night my Doppios was telling me otherwise..I still can't get over how unbelievable they sounded first time I threw them on my ICAN. I couldn't stop listening to them.

Ah, yeah. Intl trades can be quite costly. smily_headphones1.gif I haven't used them in a while but I still love them enough to keep them, so a sale isn't in the near future. biggrin.gif
