It's definitely equal to the S2 technically (I haven't really A/Bed them yet to say which is better to my ears). As good or better than the M200? Nah, I don't hear that yet.Not far behind but not equal. I'm about to A/B those two to make sure, but I know the bass is superior in the M200 (and the bass in the 750 is excellent). If we're going by price, I might have to agree that the 750 is the best bang for the buck so far this year (especially since I paid under $100 for it). 

Then again, I think the EM8513 Cardas is the best bang for the buck in top tier that I I've heard.

 

Time to update the rankings in your sig :)

Is this in response to the best under $50 question?  Even better than the VSonic VSD1/VSD1S and Zero Audio Carbo Basso/Tenore?

They have one of the best performance for price.. Negative.. I like my Bass to hover over all the tunes. Always. Funk o trunk is always the way to go!

They have wicked detail for single dynamic..  Negative.  Who needs pin point accuracy in your sound. I like my sound kinda sloppy.

They are balanced like no other.. Big negative..I am all about bass and no treble.

They are built with stainless steel.. Negative. These won't break as easily as lets say something built with plastic? I need an excuse to buy more iems when they break.

They come with a real nice case and a grip of nice tips.. Negative.. I only like proprietary tips that KEF put out. Those are winners and only 3 pairs in different sizes so I can only use one pair if they fit.

They are very easy to drive.. Double negative. I want my earphones to only sound good while hooked up to my NFB-5 at home..

Don't buy this iem. It is full of negatives. They won the GOLDEN NUT award?  What the hell is that anyway.!!
I love you

Yeah, I was going to do it this morning but got distracted. Will do it tonight or in a couple of days. 

 

By the way, DX50 and DN-1000 came in today. I haven't had a chance to listen with either one yet, but just finished updating the DX50 firmware. I will have some impressions tonight.

post #14916 of 32875

Well did manage to get the DN-1000 in my ears for a few second. Definitely more bass than the H-200, but doesn't sound as airy (but no burn-in so don't assume my thoughts will stay that way). The sound signature is fuller and more forward than the H-200. I can't get my head around the sound quite yet, but not bad out of the box. I need to try these sound rings that came with it to see how that shapes the sound (right now I have no rings on it).

post #14917 of 32875

sweet finaly its sad to know your impression of the R3s will be late coming but that life i guess. My MX10 should be here any day now i cant wait ill try to compare them to my S400s.

These Gratitudes had an MSRP of over $200. They are being liquidated and I have read way more positives on the sound than anything negative. In fact I haven't read any negatives here at headfi. So with that being said. Guys that want a deal.. Here it is.

I haven't heard the Vsonics but I got a chance to audition the Zero Audios - they don't touch the Gratitudes.

post #14920 of 32875

Okay, three sets of rings (red, blue, and silver). The red is the thickest (giving the greatest distance between the tips and nozzle grill), then blue, and finally the silver being the thinnest. No ring = huge bass lack of airiness. I went directly to the red rings. Cuts down on bass but it's still powerful. A more neutral sound and airier sound (kind of reminding me of the H-200 but fuller sounding). I like this! I will check out the blue and silver when I get home. I read in one review that one of these rings gives it a K3003 sound, but I have to find that review and figure out which color ring. I would say with the red ring the bass is around S2 level (maybe a little more bass, but not as bassy as the 750i). And I definitely don't hear that awful spike in the highs that irritated me with the otherwise superb H-200.

Just did a bit of reading up on them. They sounds pretty good. Especially for $50. I wonder what shipping costs to Canada... hopefully $40 so I can stop this one dead in it's tracks lol

Those Gratitudes are tempting but my recent purchase of the MA750 won me over to where I feel I don't need another. That is until word of the XBA-H3 comes around. I hope those do end up being Sony's best ever..Can't wait to read some impressions on those.

 

Dunu's sound interesting. It is cool that they have tuning rings.

Yeah, those sonys are quite a temptation. hopefully they are VEEERY refined and less bassy version ox my XB90EX, with better soundstage, resolution, details, speed, instrument separation and everything, really...

You just described the S2. The MA750 got all that minus the sound stage to be larger over the XB90.

 

I expect the XBA-H3 to be a top tier sound for $350..That is what I am hoping for.

post #14925 of 32875

These MA750's definitely sound like the ones for me. They don't require powerful sources, and they isolate well. I like the description of their sound signature also. I guess they have more bass quantity than the CKN70's? How do they compare to the CKN70's btw? Are they a level up in terms of sound? Do they compete in the same league as the CKS1000?
