All right, that stellar review made me pull the trigger on the S2 etysmile.gif

 

I have the Senn IE8 that I like a lot, but I've always had problems with the fit. I hope the S2 will give me less trouble... and anyway, I'm in the mood to try something new! biggrin.gif

I shall be trying my best ignore tactics as well. Although the best way would be for me to loose my internet connection on all of my devices.

 

Wanna save up for the H-200 now, so sorry Ds no hyped sale of the S2 for now lol

 

I say "for now" coz I'll probably end up coming back and bowing down to you for recommending another stellar IEM after I've failed to retract my burning interest. ph34r.gif

One thing in the back of my mind are those damned triple hybrid Dunu dn-1000's. Damn they look cool!

They don't have detachable cables like the H-200 though.

Correct, and a factor no doubt.

Joker recommended me these and since I've been happy following his recommendations before i went ahead and ordered them. 

 

Man was I surprised when they arrived. I must say that these are the most expensive IEM's I've ever bought but I was still not expecting more than a decent sound. I was actually worried that they would have a worse sound than my current favourites the CKN70 and the VSD1, well no need to worry about that. I could tell right away that they are way better than them both but since I don't have any experience with more expensive IEM's I could not tell how they would compare to more expensive competiton.

 

Dsnuts, I'm really glad to read your impressions since it confirm my impressions. I thought I was crazy for loving these so muchbiggrin.gif

 

These are actually the first IEM's I've ever heard that can compete with my favourite full sized cans soundwise,

 

I also have to mention the build quality and looks. There might not be any significant sound difference between the S1 and S2 but the S2 seems to be way better built than the S1 and they really look sexy. I've never got so many positive comments on the design for any other IEM's I've owned.

 

Edit: USD 115 is crazy for these. I paid about USD 200 over here and I'm still very happy!

You tell it like you hear it.. All I am saying is I don't remember the last time I was awestruck like these on open box. Congrats on getting an S2.. Ya these are no joke..

H-200s are a nice option.. But I am gonna be honest. I bought the Fidelio X1 instead. I wanted a new full sized can..Can't wait to try them out. Will let you guys know how they sound in comparison to the S2 when I get em.

Since your family is abroad, happy Father's Day Dsnuts, and any other pops out there!

Thank you my friend. My family is enjoying today without their dad but I am passing the time with my newly acquired S2 and the CKS77X. So it is not too bad of a day.. I do miss the wife n kids though..

The rapid advancement of iem tech is amazing so nothing is really outta the question really. But.... so is the tech of full size headphones so... great time to be an audio junkie that's for sure. haha duggehsmile.png

 

Anywho, i completely understand what you're saying, cuz despite the soundstage of the corecools is biggest i have heard to date, it does sound a bit artificial to me. In general it is pretty difficult to get the huge stage/ amazing bass along with great mids and highs that is also crazy transparent esp. in one iem, and this is why i think these cheapo chinese cools are pretty unique. If Danny find that they are worth your time, i would love for you to hear them and give us some honest impressions. If only they were cheaper though, since at $100 there is A LOT of competition out there these days, so......

Sure I will give them a listen.. It is too bad about how these are dish type I know you don't like the dish type but it is hard to argue with the results.

I think you will be very happy with them...I can't think of a better sounding iem at the price point at all..To be honest I can't think of a single negative in the sound..It has air, it has stage, it has great balance and clarity, it has fantastic timbre and imagery, it is much more 3D than traditional monitor style neutral phones,.The price is excellent for the sound. What not to like. Look forward to your take on them..

New fag here, but guys, would anyone please go get a pair of Fischer Totem Oog and put up a review here.

I was in an IT Fair in Singapore a week back and was looking around for a pair of budget earphones so I could go jogging as the only piece of audio equipment I have on me now is the Somic MH463. There is no way I am jogging with those goliaths on my head jiggling about. I am a sucker for budget, so I limited my spending to a low 20 USD for some quality ear piece.

Searched multiple booths and nothing amazed me, even 100+ headphones sounded worse than my burned in MH463 that I got for about 40 USD. Was about to give up, but I went back another way with a girl I knew who wanted to get some stuff.

Of in a corner of the convention I came across a booth I've never seen, low and behold they sold audio equipments. Why not, go ahead and asked them where are the sections for under 30 ish product.

Found a few headphones, was disappointed by most of them until I got blown away by these earpieces, they have AMAZING clarity for its value, hell, even for twice its value. I don't know much about mid and high, but I am sure they won't disappoint. They sound almost as good as my MH463, which doesn't say a lot considering its price tag, but I am really impressed by them. (Which again doesn't say a lot considering I am a noob at audio, but again. :|)

These are a little lacking on the bass but atleast they are not overpowering. I am not anywhere near a legit audiophile with hundreds and thousands spent on audio equipments, I don't even have a proper amp, but I felt that these were really awesome enough to make an account and a post about it.

Unfortunately I couldn't find anywhere on Amazon that you could get these, I have no idea how a little country in Asia got their hands on these but they did and I am thoroughly enjoying them. In their Russian store they are selling them for 21USD or 699RUB. But if any of you come across a store that sells these, I really hope you pick them up and give it a go, wish I owned a pair of JVC HA-FX40s to compare, but meh, not sure if I can justify another 20 when I already have these, not including shipping to Asia.

Pretty sure I won't get anyone to buy these, but eh, got it out of the way. smily_headphones1.gif

For those who are considering the S1 over S2, beware: there seems to be some quality issues with the S1s. Make sure to follow the S1/S2 thread for updates:

Yes, those X1's have been perpetually on my radar as well. I know that Danny has them (and I think likes them quite a bit). Your getting them is not a good thing though LOL!

So aha what are you saying Wayne.????! Why would you say that??

 

All I can say is..If those X1s are tuned like these S2s. But much grander?? FUGETABOUTIT! Especially now that I have the S2s. I have a real good idea how they are gonna sound.  Oh man I can't wait to get my paws on them cans.!

post #10902 of 32875
L1's are laid back, X1's are livelier, I'm curious how the S2 sounds. Being an iem and all, a different flavor I hope.

Hey dsnuts did some reading with cheaper versions of the xb90ex and cks77. The xb60ex and cks55. Which of the two delivers better overall in comparison to the fx3x and xb90ex/cks77. These i can afford
