I'll give you a PM when the tyme is right. :ksc75smile:

 

Thanks again!!! :)

I don't expect the Piston in for awhile. The offer to send out the Samsung HS-330 still stands of you want? I won't be using them with the OM Audio and TDK BA-200 making their way to my porch today.

Is that the one that comes with the GS4? When I got my GS4 I immediately tossed them in the drawer. Might take them out and have a listen.

Yes sir. Those are the ones.

I have a feeling that nothing can touch it unless I spend over $200. The INEARPIECE might be the only one that has a chance.

Since I just sold my UE TF10's, I have the monetary clout to get any of the IEM's I mentioned, but I'm going to wait and see the outcome of my OM Audio InEarPeace to make any definitive purchases?

I just pulled them out and tried a few tips and had a little bit of a listen from the GS4 and my portable setup. Sounds like crap out of the GS4 but it sounds half decent out of my DX50-PB2 combo. Very uncomfortable and really hard to get a good seal. The body actually prohibits you from pushing it in far enough. There's hardly any sub-bass, the mids and treble are clear enough but it sounds like it wants to blast my ear off most of the time, its sounds very fatiguing. I guess its not too bad for a part of the package phone, but its not my cup of tea either. I'll pass and put it back in the drawer now.

You just described EXACTLY every issue I had with them. I mean spot on! Someone suggested I do a mod on the vent port on the nozzle, and this worked. Brings up the bass, and levels out the treble. I also put Comply tips on them, so they are not bad...just very uncomfortable overall, and they need an amp for sure.

I bought the Quadbeat 2's for my daughter for Christmas, and she loves them. They have amazing soundstage, spacial imaging, and transparency for a budget dynamic driver. Truth be told, I tried them out and burned them in before I gave them to her, and well, I wanted to keep them for myself lol Glad I gave them up haha She really does love them.

So I need help choosing between the Gratitudes, IM70 and MA750. I'm looking for an upgrade on my CKN70's.


I've also considered the ma750 but it seems like sound wise the IM70 is better. (from the impressions I've read here)

post #18069 of 32858

I have the IM50 and it's great - but it already has quite strong bass, and the IM70 supposedly has more, so take into account that it's pretty bassy.

Well thats a very general question.

 

Personally I'd say the DUNU, but again it depends on your preferences of sound signature and fit.

don't you know it. Fit has killed many an IEM for me, and forced me to sell. 

post #18072 of 32858

Just revisIted the Gratitudes and must say they are the best $60 ever spent, even moreso than the JVC S500.

post #18073 of 32858

What about the Astrotec AX-60? Anyone have experience with this one?

Yeah having a bad fit on very good IEMs is the worst buzz kill ever!

 

Still to this day I have to say though that the best fit I've ever got from an IEM was with my long gone Yamaha EPH-100. May they rest in peace.

There are two threads about it.
