he One brand condoms 3 pack has a metal case that works perfectly for IEMs.

I bought an overpriced Shure IEM case. Feels good every time I use it, so in the end it was worth it.

I know right? The "feel good" is the only thing that matters at the end of the day. Why do vices feel so good ha

 

edit: no one whats to chime in on that Tt/ ATH 500 A/B. So the Tt's are that inferior huh? Oh also what does "A/B" stand for anyways?

Tts are old news and are easily out done by the new AT and JVC iems. A/B.. take 2 earphones or headphone to compare side to side. Good way to know what you got for sound compared to an old favorite.. For example if you A/Bed against the old TT vs something like a CKM500. The old TT would be outdone sound wise.. You would clearly be able to tell which one has a better sound.

Cooleos, thanks for clearing that up, although I kinda already knew that was the answer but just making sure...... gonna do a A/B between the FX40s and the S500s for sure when they come in, can't wait!!!

Just out of Curiosity

With anyone who has both the CKM500 and the XB90EX, do they compare well?
I mean does the XB90EX reach the same clear highs and mids as the CKM500?
 

Also, has anyone heard of the Hisound POPO's or something.

Apparently they are bassy.

Not to sure though.


Thanks If you Answer!

post #2937 of 32903

Omnom ive got both. To sum things up,the xb90 is an upgrade over the ckm500. The bass reaches deeper. The mids give out more details. The highs are smoother and has more details. Not to degrade the ckm500 but the sonys are just on a higher level. The presentation and soundstage is also superior on the sonys. That said, I still enjoy both with the xb90 getting more ear time. It is that enjoyable. Just pure musical bliss. Oh so engaging! I really think this is due to the 16mm drivers being utilized to its maximum potential. A bass rumble ive never heard in any iem. It is simply a basshead audiophiles delight! Just like drinking Hennessy Cognac. The more you listen, the better it sounds!

out of the box they sounded WAY diferent, lack of bass and clarity between a used and new unit. 

 

sorry guys, but i had to comment here beacuse that is what i am hearing very clearly, i just opened a pair of new Fx101 and clearly i can hear diference in sound,  mostly in the highs.

 

man, i had to have a second pair, all this bass so cheap.. and they are "Kool Green" ksc75smile.gif

 

I'm with you on that mate, biggrin.gif   ...and the "kool green" FX101 are such a "must have", I got two of these, ...a FX101 and a FR201 ! tongue.gif

If you mean the JVC HA-S500,   ...it's no contest !

 

The FX40 bass goes respectfully deep but it's like a habour tug compared to an Aircraft Carrier when you pit it against the bass of the S500. In the mids and high regions, the S500 compares more to the much higher end FXD80.

 

So far, EVERYONE around here, whom I lend my S500 for a short audition have been impressed.
