Yeah, I know, whatever recent update they did to the site seems to make images disappear when copy/pasted and not embedded. Had been easier and got used to copy pasting them but that seems to only work temporary then they magically go away.

 

Anyhow, I'll just say that Sony has a new 12mm driver they seem to like...

...and put it in an EX650 and XB70 :biggrin:!

OK day 2 of using the AKG K323 and I am getting more impressed by these. They are so tiny I can sleep on my side with them in, yet they sound better than anything I have heard under a $100 and rival several IEM's I have owned in the $200 realm.

The signature still is a bit V shaped but the midrange is never distant or veiled it actually is more like it has a spike in the lower treble and a very small pleasant hump in the mid bass. The overall signature is slightly warmer than my K545 with added treble clarity and ever so slightly less sub bass.

They are comfortable as all get out and seem solidly built. For their price I can not imagine anyone but a heavy bass head or treblehead being disappointed. I will be very interested to see how they stack up sonically to my Aurisonic Rockets when they come in. But for anyone looking for a nice detailed somewhat audiophile oriented IEM at the $50 mark these are going to be hard to beat.

Trust me, mate. The way you're hyping these up I'm about ready to throw the $40 (orange) amazon down on my next Payday. I've already got the Moshi Vortex & Om IEP coming in. Do I really need another one? biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

I'm also looking at grabbing the ATH-S500 (Street Monitor) because I have some CDjapan points to burn.

Maybe if I get the L1's and a couple other things sold I will, but didn't he say something about rolled-off highs or am I thinking of another headphone? I tend to like my treble to extend at least moderately. The JVC ruined quickly rolled off treble for me because, when I was a wee little head-fier, I listened to my FX40's straight out of the box instead of burning them first.

OK I do new to be clear, I really like the AKG house sound and while the K323 is definitely on the coloured end of that signature it definitely is of the same family.

So having said that I like this little IEM sonically speaking more than any JVC IEM I have owned (FXT90, FXD80, FXZ100), and the Sony XBA-H1, Shure SE215. I do not think they are technically better than the IEM's mentioned but they are no worse than the best of them. I think if I had a pair of VSonic GR07 on hand the Vsonic might be better technically speaking but if so, only just. They just don't have the usual issues associated with an IEM at this price such as fake sounding sound stage, graininess in the mids or treble, or really poor cabling. The fact that they are as small as the Aurisonic Rocket or very close to it and have been out for several months is amazing. I have not heard my Rockets yet but unless they really something special sonically that rivals their build quality these little babies might be the perfect alternative for people on a tight budget that want a small IEM and good quality sound (I would have to go through 6 pairs of these to hit the retail price of the Rocket with microphone to justify just the build quality).

BTW I have not burned these in and have just been using them but the sound is definitely changing with use and only for the better. The bass is more level and the treble is starting to not be quite as crisp.

I have two co-workers that have tried them and one of them who used to own my old GR07 (lost them a while back) has ordered a pair. The other person who bought a pair of MTPC at Christmas prefers the added bass of the MTPC (personally I think a part of him didn't want a $50 IEM competing with his $400 retail Coppers even though he got them for only $99).

I said that the treble was dark, not rolled off. If I didn't specify that, I must truly suck at articulating my posts, lol.

 

They didn't sound like that anymore after burn-in though. It became a truly balanced headphone right after I gave them a chance. The treble and bass are well extended as well, my favorite headphone, followed by the Martin logans.

 

By all means give the re700s a chance, they are truly worth their price. I think they can compete with $250 headphones for sure.

Don't worry mate, as I said, it probably was another headphone. When writing my TH-7BB review I went and read tons of other reviews to try and figure out which reviewing style fit me.

I just grabbed these for $27 brand new. I cannot resist price/performance deals, so let's see how well they do.
