Zero Audio DX200 Carbo Tenore (on the way).

 

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

 

 

That's what i like about this thread... There's something in finding a pair of cheap over-performing headphones that's all too satisfying and enjoyable. MUCH easier on the wallet compared to those with pricier collecting habits like CIEMs or home stereo.

So after listening a bit more with the COR150s, I'm not liking the high end too much. I'm in the process of figuring out if I want to keep them or not (Thank goodness for Amazon). I plan on burning them in first and then making my final decision. In the mean time, are there any other good IEMs around the 20 dollar range? There have been so many different headphones mentioned that it's overwhelming to me haha. I currently have the FX40s as well, but I'm ready to upgrade from those due to the bad sibilance and harsh higher end. I was reading about the VSONIC GR99s, but I don't really know. Any suggestions are appreciated!

You can try MH1C, just keep in mind that the cable is very annoying, but soundwise they are unbeatable for the price.

I guess I needed to get used to the sound signature of the COR150s because I'm enjoying them now haha. Has anyone compared these to the VSONIC GR99s? Just curious how these two compare/contrast.

Fine tuned these Corecool V2s with a lil' mod and they sound much more refined now... thanks nick for the brilliant idea, looks like it's the MH1Cs ALL over again!!! LoL

 

= ... upgrade to the MH1Cs anyone??? More to come on this later.

 

These V2s is Da Chameleon...

... when you tape the bass vents on the housing just like the MH1Cs. Pretty amazing results. ph34r.gif
