Not sure why there are three 13mm. I can see one on top and bottom for two or two top and bottom. Not sure how they are placing three and the effect that has on the coherency and imaging. Unless it is one integrated unit.

 

 

Quite a few out there w/o any crossovers at all.

 

 

Yeah, been pretty content with what I have that I'm out of sync jant71! 

By the way, the Onkyo IEMs are up for preorder under $100 on amazon.com ... That and the X3 will be my next big purchases. and then I'm trying to quit for awhile.

I'm thinking about the KEF M200. That or the Onkyo?

Just stumbled upon these on Aliexpress. Never heard of them before, but they sure look good.

Oh, thank you DannyBai!

Crossovers is a deep topic and I'm on my phone right now.

The new pure platform UM Miracle tries to "solve" the crossover issue, by amplifying each driver... seperately! A single driver IEM doesn't need to do that, not saying they're better than multi of course, I don't think they are, but they have a small advantage over multis worth keeping in mind.

By the way the coolest thing about the new Onkyo headphone imho is you can use custom IEM cables with it!

Ya but you are truly taking a chance. You can never tell what one of them no name brand cheapo made in China products are gonna be. It is more of a gamble than you think.. They can make an iem look like $300 phones with detachable cables just like that but end up using very cheap drivers that sound like $10 phones. Or they could be the oem for a bigger company. A true gamble.

I still can`t find an upgrade to my S500 :/ I liked the WS99 (especially the mids were better than my S500's), but thought it could use a little bit more treble energy and a bit "slower" bass  (more decay and maybe more sub bass focus), also it was uncomfortable for me (ears were touching the driver). The M100 was uncomfortable, too and wasn't as engaging as the WS99 to me. Which one should i try next? I'd go with the X1, but i prefer a portable option (IEM or on-ear).

these moxpad look just like the new blox iem :) I think they will be the same

They were in this thread before. They are on Amazon (different branding) and get good reviews. Quick look but I didn't find them.

 

Hmmm, those Onkyo are the cheaper, non -silver cable model. Wonder if the cable is the only difference? Maybe those plus the right aftermarket cable would turn out better than the $130 model for an extra $25-$30?

Nope, the silver cable was on sale for under $100 too (unless they ended it). Let me check (because I preordered it).

Prices went up. The non-silver cable was $90 and the silver cable was $92. I got the silver cable!

Doesn't look that weird in person, and doesn't stick out that much (at least not in my ears. The TF10 stuck out way more than the CKS1000).

Are you kidding. You want to be seen with them big bolts sticking out of your ears. Attracts them girls.
