The discovery thread.! NEW Zero Audio Singolos! pg1644..Doppios! pg1197 - Page 269

Ya I read it. The review I am waiting for is dweavers. Anakchan don't seem to like it that much compared to his other cans. He likes the comfort but sound wise. He wasn't all that enthusiastic about it. But we all have different taste. The reason why I want to know what dweaver has to say is. He likes his XBA-3s as much as I do and he says he will do a comparison on how the tuning is on the MDR-1R is to the XBA-3 so that will give me a good idea what it will sound like.

 

So it seems Sony will be coming out with revisions of the XBA series.. This is interesting for me as I am interested to hear how they improved the XBA-3s to the XBA-30 the new version. Too many toys.

Ya I ordered me a set. Will try them out.. Those look like Sony's version of the micro Hd drivers tech that is on the FXD earphones. Clieos seemed mighty impressed. Will report on them once I get em.

Cool.  You as always can be the guinea.  I always end up selling or giving away these cheaper ones anyway even though most have been very good.

That's correct, ClieOS said it himself in the review, I have copied and pasted the relevant info below:

 

(1) CTIA plug is compatible to almost all typical 3.5mm TRS socket, meaning you should be able to use the headset as typical IEM on any mp3 player (i.e. iPod, Cowon, Sansa Clip, etc). OMTP plug on the other is not compatible to most 3.5mm TRS socket and only sound normal with the TRRS smart adapter mentioned before or when you pressed the call button on the remote. (2) Given Apple iDevice also use the CTIA standard, you can use the MH1C on any iDevices as well, but the volume control and smart button won’t work. Only the call button is functional.

 

As long as you get the version with CTIA plug (i.e. MH1C), then you should be fine.

See now wskls 5th post and he is contributing to the thread already. I like that. Thanks for the info.  I should have them in a few days and I will report back here for you guys to read up on. I should get a few others as well brainwavz R1, the Adiago 3s. Does it ever end? The quest never ends.

Long time no see guys!  I've started a budget IEM review thread.  Hopefully I will be posting all my discoveries (old and new) in this thread! beerchug.gif

http://www.head-fi.org/t/633102/budget-iems-review-1st-budget-review-tdk-clef-p-vocal-tuning-edition-posted

 

The first discovery is the TDK Clef-P Vocal tuning edition.  I haven't heard the other versions but I suspect people here would like the Live tune version better as that's tuned for a V-shaped sound (as opposed to the Vocal tuning which seems to be pretty even throughout the spectrum, despite marketing claims of an A-shaped vocal-centric sound)

Just want to add that I don't own an iPhone (Android user here), so testing on the mic and center button are done on a Nano 4G that should work the same way as any current generation iDevices.

Definitely have posted some impressions of the MDR-1R in the big thread over in the fullsize headphone thread. I am typing this as I sit on the train and so far these are proving to be adequate for public transit. Not as good as the XBA3 for isolation but pretty darn good for a headphone.

Sonically speaking I won't comment much other than to say holy moly do I ever like them! More detail impressions can be found at [=http://www.head-fi.org/t/625015/sony-has-new-headphones-mdr-1r/465#post_8805391][/]
