Welcome to the thread feuerspiel. I hope more lurkers of the thread joins us in our ever evolving quest for great sounds..

 

Speaking of which. I am very impressed with the Alo Continental amp...Wish it was mines. Lol. But it ain't it will go back to a good friend who let me borrow it. This is why I don't like going to CanJam and meets. I hear all sorts of fantastic stuff I want to buy..Stuff I don't need to be spending monies on.

 

I have to admit. Hearing the TH900 in person at the Fostex table. I am gonna have to sell a kidney in the black market to buy one. One of these days.

Yes, was just telling people that it's available on Amazon now.

Just spent some time with these (loaner pair), and for $22 I say run don't walk! Heck of a phone for under $30. 

 

 

Now I have had a chance to spend a good amount of time with the R3. The mids are freaking incredible with the R3! The bass and treble are decent, but I say there's still more work to be done on the R3. It can be smoother and more refined. Great effort, however, after the R1. The fit is fantastic for me, but these are some big missiles hanging from one's ears. My rankings still stand in my previous posts.

Didn't think of it in that way, but I can't think of a DD that sounds better.

My kids get their guitar lessons from this guy. Pretty good.

 

 

 

Actually more than pretty good. He is a living master of the guitar,  I am about to go see this guy in concert with my kids..Check out some of his music when you guys get a chance. Amazing stuff.

So I've missed the past couple hundred posts and need a bit of a refresher. What are currently the best options for IEMs under $50? I need to buy a birthday present for a friend so if you guys could help me out, I'd really appreciate it. I let him have a listen to my Heaven V, CKS1000, and CKM500. He liked the Heaven V for its detail, clarity, and mids/vocals but thought it was lacking too much in the bass. He also liked the CKS1000 but thought that the bass was a bit too much for him and the mids a bit too recessed. He thought the sound signature of the CKM500 was probably closest to his preferences, but noted that its technical ability wasn't as good as the other two. The first two options that popped into my head were the Carbo Tenore and Basso. I'm leaning a bit towards the Tenore since he has a slight preference for vocals/mids.

Monster Gratitude for an extra 10 bucks.

I haven't been keeping an eye on the GEEK DAC developments, but just had a little read and it seems they've decided on a different DAC chip - the ESS 9018M rather than the Ti PCM1795. Also seems like Larry is already starting work on their next design which sounds like a desktop version of the GEEK. Cool stuff.

You can read about it on the Light Harmonic GEEK thread in the Portable Headphone Amps forum.

I second this. I haven't heard them, but that value is truly amazing.

I like the Carbo Tenore, have it, also have the Gratitudes, I'd get the Gratitudes (it is a bit odd shaped, stick out at a funny angle[not as bad as the AT 1K] but I had no fit issues with it, and I have fit issues with many iem's). Thinking of buying more for gifts as well.
