The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 189

post #2821 of 26099
forgot to ask. what are the accesories included?

Nice cloth bag, shirt clip and 3 pairs of Sony hybrids. Don't have them with me since I'm away but I think this is correct.

considering to try the new XB30EX (it's cheaper).
does it have more mid-bass , "hump" than the other 2? the best i had in bass was the Eterna , for reference
and how bad are microphonics with that flat cable?
thanks

It has a cheaper flat cable then the 60 and 90 but microphonics are minimal. None of them really has a mid-bass hump but the 30's have less sub-bass then the other two. I would say its a side grade to the eterna. I still think the 30's might possess better sub-bass and better balance over the eterna though. This is all based on memory.

Alright,

Well currently I'm searching for the next best Bassy IEM, I already have the FX101, and Im looking to upgrade!

Its down to either the CKS77, or the XB90EX!

Which do you, who own both, reckon I should get?

Would you say that the CKS77s bass is much of an upgrade to the FX101?

Or even the XB90EX?
If they're not much of a huge upgrade in bass and all do you guys reckon I should head for something like the CKM500?
Does anyone know of really good bassy IEMs that will definitely surpass the FX101s by at least 75%?

Ive heard about the MG7s, as well as ASG 1.2s also Hippo VBs

Hmmm so many choices, I would get them all in a heart beat but money restrictions stop that.

Oh and btw I can get the CKS77s for $50, worth it?

Thanks Head Fiers

Well, I've been a happy owner of Hippo VB, though others haven't, we've had a few members experience problems with channel imbalance and another who thought $9 skullcandy's were better, from my experience and other more experienced members that's not the case though. I would say go for it, but I just don't trust recommending them anymore recently. If you want to take a risk by all means they have BIG bass, very big bass compared to FX101.

What are you using for a source Omnom? I"m thinking your money might be better spend on a bass boost amp for the IEM's you already own. Something like an Fiio E6. You can't get serious about bass without the right food source.

Yea my source is straight out of my iPod, so maybe looking at an amp could be a possibility.

Could you compare the VBs to the CKS77s or the XB90EXs?
Thanks

I haven't heard those sorry. Have you checked out the apps such as Equalizer and EQu? They will give you a lot more control of bass frequency's.

Edit: Sorry, firstly, is it an ipod touch?

That's a good thing, as long as it's a later generation touch that supports Equalizer and EQu from the app store. ( I think 3rd? and 4th) you can use those for bass boosting and they work quite well. If you cannot get the apps then I would look into purchasing a Fiio L9 LOD and Fiio E6 for your touch, ($40) Doing so will give you a lot more power to play with. When in conjunction using E6 bass boost will give better results than another IEM purchase.

Because frankly I'll be honest the standard EQ on an ipod touch sucks! Sorry but I had to say it. If however you use an amp or those apps, best of all both, you'll be maxizing potential of IEM's you already own.. Those IEM's you have are capable of more bass, they just need the power to do so. Your source is preventing you from milking them any further and possibly any other IEM you buy may not be enough to crave your needs.

I was a basshead once just like you, (then I took an arrow to the knee) amping was the only way I could get adequate bass levels. The touch doesn't have enough power and the EQ you're using is not helping focus on area's that need improvement, mostly below 100Hz.

Yea well I've got the 3rd Generation so I guess Im gonna buy that App! the Equ has better reviews, haha!

Yea Standard iPod EQ sucks balls, the really need to intergrate self tuning into further iPod generations because haven't they realized it's a problem!

Anyway do I still need that amp for adding bass if I'm able to use that app?
I will be carrying this around in my pocket, so I don't want it to bulgy.

Is it a necessary thing for a student?

Thanks!

If the app works (which I hope it does) I would say no, you won't need the amp, (unless curiosity really get's the better of you) They work pretty good eh.

Couldn't agree more about ipods not having proper five band equalizers. I just can't believe it sometimes.

Goodluck! May the bass be with you. cool.gif
post #2830 of 26099

Haha, Thanks Man!

Hmmm, I'm still debating whether I should consider those CKS77s or maybe save up for the XB90EX,

considering that the CKS77s would be $50! I'm not to sure, but I think that's a steal.

I could always find myself a pair of CKM500s!

:)

Oh do you reckon you could post a good setting for the Equ for Bass?
This looks really difficult to set! haha

I haven't used EQu only Equalizer.

Equalizer? It's been a while since I've used it. Use the farthest left dot, set it to 80hz with around 4.5db and go from there. Set the next one to around 120hz at about 2.5db. It will take some trial and error though make sure you stick with it. It turned my touch into an excellent player. I was about to throw it away before using the app Equalizer.

You'll work it out, ask in the thread I gave you for some advice too
