I was just going off what james444 told me via PM:

 

"Hi there, yes fit may be a concern in your case, since their housings are pretty large. Particularly if you like to wear them downwards. A friend of mine with smaller ears tried my FX850/750 and he had less issues with them over-ear. The nozzle is angled in a way that places the earpieces almost parallel to your ear in that case, and you don't have to fit the whole diameter of the housing. For some reason he even preferred the 850 over 750 for comfort.

 

But downwards and small ears is potentially problematic, sorry to say."

 

Out of all the IEMs I've used, the XBA-H1 was the only one that the housing size caused a problem. It hasn't been a problem with the SoundMAGIC E10, JVC HA-FX101, Xiaomi Piston or the Zero Audio Carbo Basso.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could help me pick an IEM.

I currently have 3 which I rate as follows: Zero audio carbo basso > Vsonic VSD1 > Sony XBA3 (blasphemy perhaps?)

 

The VSD1's shell is completely broken and I just couldn't fix it.

The Bassos have driver-flex and one side is usually softer than the other now.

I'm left with the XBA3 but I just feel like it's missing something =(

 

I'm not a bass head but I do prefer having it in good quantity and quality. I listen to a mix of music, usually instrumental/classical tracks.

I prefer fun, warm, non-fatiguing IEMs that have a big sound stage.

Comfort, easy fitting and no micro-phonics are important.

 

Though my budget is around $120, I was looking at the Zero audio carbo tenore and the Audio Technica IM70.

Open to other suggestions of course.

If it weren't for the statement in bold letters above, I would've suggested the Brainwavz R3.

They are one of the most overlooked dynamic IEMs in head-fi.

 

For the music you listen to.... the R3 is splendid.

Try asking Joker at his thread. I'm pretty sure he can point out a few suggestions.

 

Goodluck!

Doctorjazz, sorry to hear about your bad audio karma recently!   i had 3K$ marantz cd player stop reading discs also in my main system!

I think its a conspiracy to get us to upgrade to more GEEK OUT AND UP stuff!  of course the cats sleeping on the heat vents may have

something to do with it.  someone should write an essay on AUDIO KARMA  and how to please the audio gods for equipment longlivity.

Hope that the rest of your equipment makes it through the spring.....

I havent really found a budget option that was the whole package though. Ive been quite a few through this thread, I just dont post about it every time I buy one.

 

Budget Killer is a subjective thing which is going to mean different things to different people.  Within my budget, I will gladly pay more to eek out 10% more, 5% more.   And its not strictly sound for me, its also the fit, cable, aesthetics, ease of warranty replacement if needed, etc.

I totally understand your point. Personally, I don't really judge an IEM in regard to aesthetics and fit because I have learned that those two factors can differ from one user to another. Hence I don't discuss them that much in my reviews...

If you are interested in the R3 I'd be willing to sell mine if the price is right wink.gif

Re the Geek out 750 i just received.  Thanks DS for your initial impressions vis a vis the DX90! excellent points!
Right out of the box I'm impressed with the liveliness of the signal (class A shines) and the dynamics of the unit.
Tone and tetures are good, but serious burn in obviously still needed as bass is smeared and soundstage
a bit foggy.  Compared to custom MHDT NOS dac through Vali amp, its digital sounding and has less decay
of tones and instruments (more decay means to to me more analogue sounding), and bright.  but shows great
promise and, i hate to say it, worth the four month wait for delivery.  Great engineering job.
Cant wait to hear it after some serious burn in!!!
