The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1127

Those do look nice! Not too pricey either (judging from the cdjapan price). I usually like AT's sound, but my biggest question would be whether they are comfortable, which the last couple sets I got from AT definitely weren't.

Didn't get the Yamahas yet, today was the earliest they might have been delivered. Have to go back to the other newer on ears I've been listening to...Senn Amperiors (powerful, swinging), Beyer DT 1350 (open, wide soundstage, V shaped, nice detail), Martin Logan Mikros 90 (go back and forth on these-like finicky iems, how you position them makes an incredible difference. When in good position, nice, full, textured bass, good detail, nice rich sound). Was just casually listening while finishing office work on computers, maybe psych myself to throw all 4 in the ring when I get the Yamahas...

Who knows, maybe I'll be...

Yamahas came today, haven't gotten a chance to listen yet, but should pull it out later and listen. I have to collect my impressions on the Mikros 90, listen when I have some time and sort it out, but I do really like them. Looking at the thread dedicated to them, they seem to inspire love or hate-people don't have middling feelings about them for the most part. As I mentioned, they behave a bit like a finicky iem that's difficult to fit in that, put on the wrong way, the bass is MIA and things sound thin. Someone even posted the "proper" way to put them on for good fit (put them in front of your ears, then slide them back until they cover the body of your ear). Sounds silly, but, know what? That made a major difference in sound for me, and I do really like them. The way I see it, they started about $300 list, are made by a major audiophile speaker company, and are now selling for $60-$80 (Newegg regularly has them in this range). At this price, seems like a no brainer to give em a try (again, some people seem to hate them, but the investment isn't all that great). I will try to do a round up of the different on ears I've been accumulating.

Well I couldn't hold it off any longer, I ordered the HPH-200s. I'm really excited to hear how they compare to the HA-S500s!

post #16901 of 26093

MTX has a new dual driver IEM out. Also a fullsized thingy but the IEMs look interesting.

 

 Red/silver and black/silver. 

Look to be ~$99

An 8 mm and a 5 mm driver per side.

I'd fire you off the M500's to add to your round up if you lived in the great white north!
