I look forward to guys that will be new to the S2s as I have put them through their paces and in the end came out with one of the best dynamics I have ever put into my ears, and really knowing what I do about what these earphones can do..And at the price these are going for..

 

They absolutely belong as a headliner for the discovery thread..These are beyond bang for buck..These will teach you guys something about sound..Throw these on your powerful sources and you will know what I am talking about. I look forward to everyone's take on the S2.

 

Now I'm glad that I already have the C5! I can't wait to pair the S2s with that beast...

Oh yea when I bought Danny's 2Stepdance amp. I was shocked at the difference the amp made from my Meridian Explorer..Just authority X10. I didn't expect that much of a difference. Then how they sound on my NFB-5. They don't sound like in ears. They sound like a wall of speakers. Lol.

Man, the hype for the S2 has endured months.

And here I am still waiting for them to be available on amazon.

BTW I got the MH1c tips look alike. Unfortunately, they're not exactly the same as the original ones that are great in keeping a seal. So what did I end up using with the H200???

I got the Sony Hybrid noise isolating tips (with foam) that I got off the XBA1 i bought for $20! I'm using the large size and it's an excellent pair for the H200. Keeps an excellent seal for a shallow insertion type and they are also very comfortable. The best thing about them... they make the H200 sound at its BEST!!! I've used tonnes of other tips with the H200 and I can definitely say that the Sony Hybrid noise isolating tips are a MUST!

The Hybrids are great for isolation, but I've noticed a certain tinniness to the h-200 sound due to small bore. Did you stretch them out or something?

I don't notice any tinniness. As a matter of fact, the H200 sounds less sibilant with the hybrid tips. Note that I'm using the large tips and it's not even inserted in my ear canals. I've got really small ear canal and the large tips seem to sit and seal properly just at the opening of my ear canal.

But even if the insertion depth is small, the bore size is still smaller than the stock tips. I'm currently stretching out a pair on my TF10s, hopefully, that'll work.

Currently using a pair of TSX200 Complys. Pretty good, better isolation than the stocks, with a more tamed mid.

I did use the TSX200 at one time. Had to ditch them because they somehow affect how cymbals sound on the H200. They don't sound natural IMHO. They also accentuate the metallic characteristic of the BA drivers in the highs.

The cymbals... Yeah, but it's still bearable compared to the stocks. I cringe everytime I tried playing anything mid-centric, like Jpop on them, even after burn-in. I'll give the Hybrids another try tonight, they have always been my favorite, but them small bores mang.... Wish Sony came out with an entire like on tips with 3mm-6.5mm bores. That'll make me be set for life on tips. Lol

Good luck! I hope you find the right tips for you.

Has anyone placed an order on the (out of stock temporarily) Onkyo ie-hf300 on Amazon? They seem to have the best price, and not by a slim margin either. The Onkyo and the philips s2 are on the top of my "to try" list.

 

 

Also, I just got a pair of PNY midtown 200, based on Joker's word in the multi review thread... I don't really have the widest collection at the moment to compare them to, but holy cow were these worth $17 (ebay). They have clear mids, pretty extended highs, and very generous lows that add some warmth to the sound. Over all they don't sound like sub-$20 IEMs, and are really well built too.

 

Not my descovery, but they are most definitely worth at least some interest! More than worth the money i paid for them!

I just ordered another 2 pairs of HF300 for some friends, should be here within a few weeks.

If you do get a chance, try both. I let about 8 people try them both fully burned-in and results are split right in the middle.

from amazon, does it actually say that?

 

I'm getting this:

"Order now and we'll deliver when available. We'll e-mail you with an estimated delivery date as soon as we have more information. Your account will only be charged when we ship the item.
Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. Gift-wrap available."

 

$130 seems pretty good.

I'm buying from amazon.jp. 15600 yen each for them, + about 20usd for a forwarding service to get them to my doorstep. Which totals to 170usd each.

I'm definitely keeping an eye on the IE-HF300s. The guy I bought my Bassos from on eBay has them in stock as well.

I have over a month ago when it was $92. It doesn't give a delivery date in public, but in my que I have a delivery date between Aug. 20 - Sept. 2. So I'm hoping it's sooner than later.
