KEF's are the real deal!

I've been giving the M200's a break and listening to the M500's all evening. Using iPod and Intruder. Staging is wide, almost a surround sound effect. Treble is detailed and I hear zero sibilance and don't detect any peaks I heard on open box. This happens to be one of the better treble presentations I've heard. Seriously nice details in the treble. Midrange is to die for. Little more air than the M200 and added mid-bass over the M200's has a nice effect on vocals. Bass is punchy and fast. Doesn't go as low as the M200's but is detected on music with sub-bass notes.

For the more analytical listener, M500's are the ticket. Not that M200's can't be enjoyed by the analytical listener but is slightly warmer sounding. Both are different and sound amazing. If you're worried about fit, the M500's are a no brainer. Both are extremely comfortable though. It took me about an hour to get the fit perfect on the M200 and I've had zero problems since. It took me about an hour to get addicted to the sound of the M500 and I'm hooked. Value on these, I feel I got a steal on the sound from both.

My largest tips are from auvio. I hope they'll work outfine. Thanks mate!

Just tried Auveo tips they do fit the nozzle.. The problem for me is that most earphones I have a housing you have to throw into your ears which pushes the tips internally into your ear structure. All AT earphones for example.. I doubt anyone can throw these earphones housing and all in your ears. The housing is monster in size so it is all about the nozzle. This is why there is a hook on these which hold the earphone in place.. The hooks are very comfy and you can't even notice they are over your ears. They are there to hold these big earphones in place.

So I managed to get my round Complys on here no cutting needed. It is a very tight fit but it works. Man I am afraid I might bust the nozzle. Luckily the housing and nozzle is strong.

DannyBai my photo taking is terrible, so would you mind taking a photo of that beautiful M500 clam case? I mean they spared no expense in elegance!

Welp, just went over to try a few gears. In a few words, M200 was too big, could never get a good fit, the M500 was friggin amazing, clear and detailed with nice bass, a little too analytical for my taste but the quality is mindblowing. But the vocals, oh my god the vocals were so beautiful on these, I heard Only Human by Remioromen and it's like I was hearing the song for the first time.


So....... I bought them. frown.gif

Don't forget that the M200 is meant to have a shallow fit inside of the ear.

Well let me ask you how does the Onkyo signature compare to the M500 in clarity, mids, vocals? I'm sure the Onkyo has more bass.

Wow this M200 seems like a crazy deal! 

Being preferred over the likes of H-200, CKS1000, S2, EX-1000, W4, PFE 232, RE-400!

All on my wishlist.. And this is the IT! Simply insane eek.gif

Seems like the CNET reviewer for the KEF M200 also had issues with fit.

 

Quote:

The good: The KEF M200 Hi-Fi Earphones deliver very clean, well-balanced sound and feature impressive build quality with aluminum housings and a flexible arm to keep the earphones securely in place. They also have an Apple-friendly inline remote/microphone and come with a nice carrying case.

 

The bad: Because the housing is so large, some people will have trouble getting a tight seal and comfortable fit with the included eartips. Not getting a tight seal will seriously impact sound quality.

 

The bottom line: The KEF M200s sound excellent, with clean, accurate sound, but they just won't fit some ears.
