Cool, Eric, so un-Methany (then again, he did time with Ornette Coleman...obviously can do anything, musically AND technically!)

Who's he playing with, that European orchestra that invites jazz guests (Denmark sticks in my head, could be wrong)?

taken wearing them.

 

 

Looks like they stick out a bit more than expected, seems it'd be at the edge of feeling comfortable while lying sideways on bed. The build quality certainly is good enough for this application

For those that managed to get one of those Moxpad X3s - any impressions on them yet?

 

Also, a few weeks in, still no reply from ANYMODE despite my multiple emails.

 

Looks like I might get my Monos in after the long weekend as well...

I actually find the MA750 to work well in bed...and I have fit problems with them otherwise. They are pretty flat and small (the picture makes them look bigger than I think they really are), and I can lie in bed ear down and it doesn't bother me. Actually, seems to help the side I lie down on as far as fit goes, the pressure of my head pushes them in the tiniest bit more to get good seal (they have very small nozzle as well, don't go deep into the ear, I think that is where many have the fit/seal problem).

OK, listened last night...not sure I'm the one to give definitive impressions on this...I never like most of these oddball shaped iem's. My preference is the "bullet" shape, Etymotic, Tenore, others like that. The GR07's have sat around because I have trouble with seal/comfort on them. I played with tips for a bit, settled on some Monster tips. Next, I think my GR07's have some channel imbalence, the L side seemed quieter than it should be (wasn't dead, though). Now, having said that, seemed the 750's KILLED the GR07, more alive, wider, both have detail but really enjoyed listening to the 750's MUCH more, even trying to take all the above into account. GR07's kinda flat, boring in comparison (BE probably meant to fix this to some extent).

Do the 750s kill the Monster Gratitudes as well?

No, I don't think they kill the Gratitudes at all...just did a mini version of the direct comparison I did yesterday with the Sony's and the 750's, most of the same songs. Now, let me reiterate, I don't find the fit of the 750's easy to manage...I think I have the tips that work, give a decent seal and I get good bass, but it's a delicate fit at best. Maybe that is coloring my impressions...they don't fit in with many in Whose Ears We Trust. Having said that, I got the same general impressions comparing the Gratitudes and the 750's. The 750's are space monsters...wide soundstage, open, quiet soundstage/space between instruments, and this has a way of pulling you in, a WOW factor. Bass is really good, another thing that helps propel music and gives more "Wow". I do think they become a bit congested when the music gets complex...again, I think the monsters flesh little details out better than the 750's. Cymbals are more "cymbal-y", acoustic guitars more...well, you get the picture. This shouldn't be so shocking-they were made to be about $300 iem's, they should have some really strong, musical characteristics. The fact that they can be had for <$100 (seen them in the $60 range) makes they a great bargain. I don't want to come off like I dislike the 750's...on the contrary, they are fun to listen to and a good music transducer, but overall, if I had to just pick one, I'd go Monster (Gratitudes fit is MUCH better for me...ymmv, as I keep saying. That may make a huge difference, dunno)

(I don't love the GR07's, find them boring, and even harder to get a good fit)

post #15490 of 25985

I still think GR07 BE and Earsonics SM3 are the two greatest IEM's i've owned so far!
Gotta get on dat ASG-2 though

post #15491 of 25985

I posted this in the dx50 thread but if you order an ibasso dx50 from mp4nation you'll get a free brainwavz R3.

post #15492 of 25985

Haven't heard the GR07 BE, may like it, who knows, lots of people love the original, different strokes and all that.Am really curious about the ASG-2, Cardas, others...hopefully I'll get a listen at some point to these, should take a break and listen to what I got :popcorn:

Yeah, I know - the temptation is strong but I already lasted this long without buying x3 or dx50 and I'm kinda set on buying the x5, so I think I can last few more months for it. I have a strong will - dsnuts was also going to wait for it and he cracked so bad buying both x3 and dx50 :D but I can show some superior fortitude. Even if I buy a dx50 now I'll still want to buy the x5 anyway, so I might just wait for it and probably invest these 250 bucks in a ps4 purchase.

My 1KS continue to burn in, up to about 200 hours, so i am sneeking a peek at the sq with my new DX50.

I am blown away, its a unique and tremendously synergistic experience.  Basshead music never sounded so

good on any system except live shows.  all of the research DS put into synerthy exporations really paid off.

I could retire a happy man from this thread and listen to this one for years.  haven't even put an Ray Samuels

amp on the combo or E12 on it, but thats next and surely will control the bass even more.  Dont believe anything

said that the 1K is artificial sounding until you hear it with a DX50.  ITS A MATCH MADE IN AUDIO HEAVEN!

WOW!!!!!!  

let the burn in continue and the amp experiments commence!
