what, no power adapter? hmmm/...

The features of that ELE are pretty awesome, but I don't think the CS4344 chip has quite the performance of the ES9023. At least when looking at the specs of the DACs, the ES9023 is clearly superior. Also, the Hifimediy doesn't need external power so is more suited for portability.

I still think that the "Hi-Fi TE7022 CS4398 24Bit/96Khz USB Decoder DAC Headphone Amplifier Amp + Preamp" you can find on eBay for just a little more is a better deal if you don't need the input connections that the ELE D-07 has. If you're feeling really cheap, you can even get it without the case for less than the ELE or Sabre.

Not that I actually own any of these. I'm taking my time with upgrades - money is not in abundance right now. But at this point in time, if I was going to go for it, I think the above mentioned CS4398 would be my number one choice because of portability, the dac chip and the RCA outputs.

I wonder how the new ELE and the Hi-Fi TE7022  compare to the Schitt Modi...

What iems would you guys recommend for running that are under $60? I was thinking maybe the CKM500.

If you dont mind shipping using a third party service, buy the zero aduio dx210 as it is worth having in your collection.

Edit: If you want to save your money, listen to sfw and zelda's recommendation. The monoprice 8320 is also a great deal. The jvc fx40s are alright as well. there was someone in this thread that found out that the sony ex37 was a good one as well. However, what is your preferred sound signature? Judging by your choice of a ckm500, zelda's recommendation fits the description of the ckm500. If you want a different and great SQ go with sfw's. If not, you could try a somewhat bassy headphone with a cleaner sound than the phillip's iems that dnullify found, which was the ex37.

Personally the best i have used are the Philips SHE9700, they have a j-cord style cable so you will HAVE to use them with a clip. They have a short cable with a longer detachable one which is perfect for those that strap mp3 players on their arms while running. Just use the longer detachable cable if you pocket your mp3 players. They have an angled nozzle which makes insertion a breeze, love how easy they are to get a good seal. And they sound great, plus they are really light so no fussing whatsoever and you can just focus on your running/ tunes. 

 

But the detachable cable makes cord slightly more heavy due to the 3.5mm connector, so it bounces more, and i would advice to use another clip to clip in onto the stomach area of your shirt which makes the cable almost immoveable. DOUBLE CLIPs FTW!!! 

 

They sell for like only ~ $20 new on amazon and have seen them drop as low as $4 used in like-new condition. Hope this helps.

for running you could check ATH sport series CKP. the ckm500 sounds great but wont be a good option for that

I am seriously in love with my Carbo Bassos. If they somehow manage to improve these I'll be all over them (As long as they're not too expensive). Waiting eagerly on pricing and release date for Carbo Doppio.

Wont the sound signature be quite different as Basso is dynamic driver and Doppio will be BA?

btw neromantik, regarding your question, I do prefer bassos at the moment, but the cks99s dodnt get their full burn-in, so if you dont waiting for my comparisons, dont pull the trigger just yet

Yeah meng, lovin' these for running cuz they have a smooth, yet refined and balanced sound with great bass quality. Nothing really feels lacking. More balanced than the MH1Cs that's for sure, but i would still pick the MH1Cs over these SHE9700 if it wasn't for that stupid cable of theirs. haha

 

So how 'bout those ES10s. wink_face.gif  Wasn't tryin' to low ball ya' cuz you can have any combo of all those that i listed, but you seem to have already own most of them before. :  (

 

Go listen to them meng, you're making them sad by leaving them all dusty!!! deadhorse.gif

I still can't get over why my SHE9700 sounds so sibilant. I've burnt them for over 100 hours but it's just not taming down. I love the bass tho... much better than the SHE3580. But with the sibilance at hand, I'd still choose the SHE3580. Is it possible that I may have fakes? Or maybe defects? frown.gif
