So with all the new IEMs that we keep picking up, I'm considering ordering a pair of custom molds that can be used with universals from a CIEM company. I think it might help my endless tip rolling.

Anyone tried them before?

Custom tips can affect the sound based on bore size and length. So even if you do specifically for one IEM you would or wont be happy with the result.And it wont be suitable for other iem.

This model virtually sounds near-identical to the Etymotic Research ER-4B

 

http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B000300Y9O/

 

The difference is it's priced at around $25 instead of $150, and it's Japan-only.

 

 

So now if you don't mind, let me christen this "MBK" model the market balance killer.

 

I know of many more 'secret' IEM's or earphones which hardly ever see the light of day, but these two I think are a nice start I hope?

Just got these and quite impressed. I've never heard the Etymotic, but it's always said they lack bass, and I wouldn't call these bass-light. They're quite warm and middy with not much sparkle, and slightly muffled straight out of my Fuze, but with some magic from my C&C BH they become very nice, clear and balanced. Even with Tenso fees added they're comically cheap.

Zero Audio DX210 Bassos

- Can be had on amazon japan for $45 US + $20 tenso shipping = $65. Worth up to 2x as much imo.

 

Vsonic VSD1

- Can temporarily be bought at lendmeurears for $43 US

- Then will be $51 US. Worth up to 2x as much imo.

 

ATH CKS1000

- Can be bought on amazon japan for $135 US + $20 tenso shipping = $155. Worth a lot more imo.


Thanks for the suggestions. the new VSonics look pretty interesting. It looks like they've been busy this year what with all the new models.

They really haven't gotten better with the naming scheme though, it's impossible to tell what their product line order is.

I started reading head-fi a month ago and have now bought 4 headphones:

 

Monoprice 8323

JVC HA-S500 with WS55 pads

Audio Technica ATH-CKN70.  Philips SHE3590 tips on the way.

Zero Audio DX200 Carbo Tenore (on the way).

 

Must.....stop.....reading.....head-fi!

Good luck with that!  And when you discover the secret to doing so, please fill me in biggrin.gif

Yeah... that's why you get the warning about your wallet. 6 months in and I think I've spent well over $1500 in audio equipment. At least 200 of that was on tubes alone. lol....

^E3: If you are in the throes of head-fi/audio addiction and you are not married, then don't even bother trying to get married - it just won't work! (but at least you'll have your headphones lol)

So I decided to pick up a pair of the ATH COR150s. All I have to say is wow. I'm really surprised about the sound coming out of these 20 dollar headphones. I'm liking them a lot more than the JVC HA FX40s. The sound is cleaner and more balanced with the COR150s, and the bass is boomin'! I'm really happy with this purchase considering the price I paid for them. The wires are really cheap compared to other headphones in this price range, but it doesn't bother me too much. I plan on burning them in soon to see how much the sound changes. Overall, a solid buy! normal_smile%20.gif

the cor150 sound ok to me, polite highs with extra bass. fit is probably the best part about them for me, but a phone that has not been getting enough attention is the she9700. depth and quality of bass is unbeatable at this price.

How are they in comparison to she3580/90? I can get them here for $15 shipping included.
