I'd try letting them burn-in a bit.

Also, mine sound exquisite with the extender. That's not good that it's messing things up that much for you.

 

I'm coming out of a quality tube amp, seems there is not as much power/current with the supplied extender.  My Radio Shack extender sounds way better, probably higher gauge wire than the Somic extender.  HP cable on the Somic HP is twice the size of the extender cable on my set!  Is your extender the same diameter as the HP cable?

Ok, the ELE most definitely has an amp in the chain somewhere. The bloody thing drives my 50 ohm GR07 to deafening levels, at under 30% (!)

 

Overall, it's good, especially for $19. I'm looking towards an incoming amp before I really judge it, but I'm impressed...

 

Dsnuts strikes again!

Mine is a bit thin, but I haven't noticed a difference between using it and not. Maybe yours is terribad, or maybe I'm just oblivious.

Ok......got the pads ironed out.....HM5 pads on the Somic with no other modd, but EQ +2db at 30hz.  The bass is now equal to what I hear on my S500 with HM5 pad mod with dampener behind and O-rings.

 

So, now it is a toss up with the sound A/B, between my S500, above pad mod and silver/copper hybrid cable........and the Somic.  That is soundstage width, separation/imaging, forward vocals, dead even, with the Somic's maybe a little more air around the instraments.....but the difference is small!

 

So, I'd say, the Somic's and the Cute modded S500's are a dead heat!  Love the HM5 pads, need to order another pair, I just sold my backup pair of S500 HP's, and giving the buyer HM5 pads with dampening mod and O-rings.  He got an awesome deal for sure!

Damn it i am a weak soul!!! I just got a pair of somic MH463s with the turtle beach pads for $55 shipped. Will let you'll know how they sound compared to my MH5 modded S500s.

 

Curse you cute you didn't offer me such a great deal for those S500s, if i knew you were selling them with your full mod/ w pads and all I would have gotten them in a heartbeat! Oh well.

400

How many hours have the 500s burned in?


How many hours have the Somics burned in?


I rest my case.

My 500s? 

A good 200-300 hours. They were my daily driver for a good 3-4 months.

My Somics?

80-90 hours. I got them about a month and a half ago.

I didn't know until about an hour ago how the Somic's sound with the HM5 pads minus the dampening material.  Otherwise, I would have loved for you to hear the fully cute modded S500, just to show you that cables do make a difference!  Nobody believes in wire sounding different on these threads.  Guys with replaceable cable on IEM's know about it though!
