Can't wait for comparisons with M200! M200 sounded pretty good right out of the box. Seems like MA750i needs more burn-in time? Oh cant wait!

It sounds excellent right out of the box like the M200 did. I honestly don't think burn in will do too much to the MA750's but if it does, I'll take it.

These MA750's sound like the ones for me! Just need to wait on a few more impressions then I'll be ready to pull the trigger! Also, these are easily available direct from the UK unlike most IEM's. Scottish made too! biggrin.gif

For your preference as of now, what's your initial impressions:

 

Bass: MA750 < M200

Mids: MA750 > M200

Highs: MA750 > M200

 

?

 

I know I know, way over-generalization, I just can't wait for impressions! :p

I'll post after I a/b them so I can make a better judgement. As of now, if you like bigger bass, it's the M200's all the way.

Does the MA750 sit flush inside your ears such that you can lie sideways on the bed comfortably? Still lacking a more discreet recent IEM while outside on the streets and with this build quality looks roadworthy, probably not for sports though

They are flush but sit at an angle slightly.  Still, you should be able to lay sideways with them.  The housings are actually really solid and heavy but I don't see a problem of having them fall out due to the over ear design.  The cable is quite thick also.

Thanks Danny! Before getting caught up on the posts here, the MA750's were barely in my consciousness. After reading your impressions, you could say that has changed! :-)

It was like Meh before his impressions but now... especially at this price, they seem reeally good :D

Can anyone educate me on the isolation ability of the S2s? I realize that it's not the best, but since I've never heard a semi-closes IBM I don't exactly know what to expect. Be specific if you can, like how much noise can it block out?

I, like Mackem, am trying to see if there is something better than Basso and Tenore for around $100.  I thought RE400 would be it.  I'll burn in and give it another listen.

 

I may have to increase my budget, as nothing in my sig has beaten them yet.

IMO thse fidelio s2 does not isolate well at all. Mediocre at best. Really depends on where you are going to use it. I ride the bus and the low frequency rumble of the diesel engine kills the bass. Of course sitting in the library they sound amazing.

If you plan on using them in noiser places I would say pass. Pains me to say that as I do think they are the best dynamic iem's out there right now for the price. I also have some for sale if you care wink.gif

I listen to music mostly in the office, so little background noise. Isolation is only important if it's enough so people in the next cube can't hear what music I'm listening to at moderate volumes. My big priorities are comfort, sq, and I do like a wide soundstage. Given those priorities, how do the MA750 and S2 compare?

 

Is Danny the only one who has heard both so far?

post #14655 of 32858

With IEMs and earbuds at sane volumes, it's impossible for someone in the next cubicle to hear what you're listening to. All they can hear is the treble.
