I hear that super bass as well.  Mine's been cooking for over 30 hours now but I won't put them in my ears until I reach 60.

Thanks for sharing the recommendations people.  Wanted to share my experience with the IEMs recommended here so far, and ask a question.

SHE3580:  Great for the money.
FX40:  interesting sound, good price, uncomfortable.
MP8320:  Decent, uncomfortable.
SHE9700:  bleh
FX101:  Decent, but pretty unrefined.
FXD80: Weird treble, actually seems to be a thing with JVCs, also wanted more punch.
XBA1: bleh
BWR1: bleh, not my thing at all.
CKS77:  Now we're talking.  I like these!
FX3X:  Not impressed yet.  Have the weird treble.
XB90EX:  Not interested since no review I've read gave me the impression that they had awesome treble to go with the bass.

Anyone know of IEMs that sound like the MMDT, with more highs?  I really like the way mine sound with +6dB@16k and +3dB@8k.  Without boosted highs they are kind of boring to me.  Their bass is awesome, maybe even a bit too much sometimes (I can take it -1.5dB@32Hz, and still be satisfied, maybe even -3dB).  I don't like the bling and the cable though.  Maybe these CKS77s are what I've been looking for.  I'll do some A/Bing tomorrow.  Open to suggestions though.  The only suggestion I have right now is the FX700, which I doubt I will ever get my hands on.  I also bought a used FXT90 to try out.

For the XB90's, I'm planning on geting Meelec tips. Would it matter if I get single-flange vs double-flange? Thanks :)

Maybe you can be the first to try out the CKS99 and/or CKS1000.  Those look pretty awesome.  But the FX700 sounds spot on for what you're describing.

ok. ok.

sooooooo.

these r1s.........

 

I'm definitely getting rid of the xb90ex now.

what harvin said is right.

they just don't have that awesome treble to go with the awesome bass.

Ya. Someone need to give these a go.

700

 

Unfortunately my money will be going toward the FXZ200s.

I just got mine this afternoon.

I'm not hearing the recessed mids either.

I AM finding them a bit fussy about fit, but I always seem to have issues wearing iems over-the-ear.

Are they to be subjected to the piano guys torture test??? :)

post #4106 of 32865

My initial R1 impressions...

http://www.head-fi.org/t/631240/brainwavz-r1-review/360#post_8810707

 

In summary: they're great!

post #4107 of 32865

r1 mids are DEFINITELY NOT recessed.

 

They're just a little shy of what a mid focused iem might do.

 

soundstage is amazing.

these were how much????

$35???

 

are you sure?

 

EDIT.

awwww crap.

I can no longer objectively judge these.

I am enjoying my music. (at least the current genre. Just re-experienced Kanye's "Graduation")

It's soooo seductively sweet. and warmish.

I put the xb90s in my ears aaaand....

almost immediately put the r1s back in.

 

not because the xb90s didn't sound great. THEY DO.

it's just....

They don't have the highs to match the great lower end like the r1's do.

 

And it's only been 7 hrs for the r1's and about 30 for the xb90s.

Cool man - I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter!  beerchug.gif

 

Seriously, based on my 20 minute foray with the R1's before sticking them onto my sophisticated burning station (ie hooking them up to my cheapo mp3 player), I was feeling the same way about them. NOT disappointed! :)

Sparked 'em up again. Wow - love the bass in these little puppies! Very cool soundstage. Moby's "Run On" is rumblin' like a locomotive through my cranium .. :)

Give the XB90EX more time. They Need LONG and HARD burn-in XD. I wonder if I hear more highs than average - The highs are plenty on XB90EX for me :|
