I'm not sure how long ago but I remember checking it out a couple of months ago.

Because of you guys, this is what I have/had:

 

IEMs:
$49 NuForce NE-700X (new and improved version)
$50 Zero Audio Carbo Tenore ZH-DX210
$9 Philips SHE3590 (bought for the tips)
$29 Hifiman RE2 (bought in 2009)
$40 Audio Technica ATH-CKN70 (sold)
 
Over-ear headphone:
$28 Monoprice 8323
 
On-ear headphone:
$55 JVC HA-S500

I spent 2 hours comparing the Basso, Tenore, and NuForce NE-700X.  They are all good!  I tested on pop and rock from my laptop on rdio.com.

 

Tips:  None of the stock tips sealed well on the Bassos, so I tried the Meelectronics M6 double flange and they sounded much better.  Both the Tenore and Basso sound better with these tips than stock.

 

Bass: In terms of quantity, NE-700x > Basso > Tenore.

 

Vocals:  Tenore better than Basso better than NE-700X.

 

The left Basso had driver flex when I push them into my ears, but once in, they sound perfect.  Why is driver flex an issue if it's only heard during insertion?

 

Still need to listen more before deciding which one I want to keep.

I posted this in the KEF500/200 thread. Listening to them now, excellent (after the tip change).

 

I tried these out looking for a new IEM. I found that a pair of Monster MD Trumpet tips work perfectly, giving a much wider option in terms of comfort. The original tips really hurt my ears, I was thinking I would have to send them back. Great sound, too much pain though. Just felt nasty (all three sizes). Pulled out the Trumpet box and tried a smallish pair of tapered single flange silicone gray tips, immediate relief, sound still fantastic. All there. The Trumpet are large microdrivers, so they have a very large sound tube, and the tips are large enough to cover the massive KEF tube but not enough to slip off and remain in your ear.

 

As for isolation, with the Monster tips they isolate as well as any other in-ears I have owned, which is limited. But no noise issues and with these tips they feel like a deep insertion headphone. Not so with the OEM tips.

An high-end audio retailer is going to let me listen to the Cardas mirror earphone in the near future. I'll report to you guys soon after I hear it.

Gonna have to use this criterion for judging future IEMs. "Can I hang myself in these? Yes? Good they should hold up."

I guess I'm mainly wondering how the bass compares really since both seem to have excellent mids and highs. Sorry if this has been asked/mentioned earlier.


For EDM your gonna want the CKS1000. The Fidelio is more neutral in sound signature and the sound is good for EDM as the bass end is solid on them but not exceptional like the CKS1000s for EDM.

 

If you don't want to pay that much you can opt for the NE-700 or Bassos. Both will sound great for EDM.

This will be good to know from a source I trust and I hope you can hear the RE-600's at some point too.
