Unfortunately, I haven't heard either of these.  frown.gif  Anyone here got some impressions to share?

Anyone else feel free to chime in, Thanks a bunch.

 

Oh, of course, I understand.  In my mind, and from my ownership experience, the Dunu DN-19 Tai Chi will serve you well.  Assuming your budget allows for it - which it does - I think you'll be happy with it.  I am.

 

However, in the interests of being thorough, there is one other IEM in my inventory that also has "isolation, good bass, and good build quality for under $150."  I am speaking of the RHA MA350 ($40) or RHA MA450i ($50).  Of course, the Tai Chi does sound better in the sense that it is a smoother, more refined, and more sophisticated presentation.  But the RHAs do hold their weight at their price range.

 

If you want to find out more about them, my friends jgray91 and a_recording both have reviews up for them.  jgray91's MASSIVE 5-part review of the MA350 can be found at http://fantasyrumbahp.wordpress.com/rha-ma350-iem-review-journal/, while a_recording's video review is below:

The BA200 is a good balance between detailed and non-fatiguing. They have a warm clarity if that makes sense. I haven't heard the HF5 but from what I've read, I kind of doubt the BA200 would be a significant upgrade in detail or clarity, if any. They have very good instrument separation though, which adds to the perception of clarity.

Hope that helps at least a bit.

Hi lukebeat, welcome to Head-Fi.  smile.gif  Sorry about your wallet.  frown.gif

 

Okay... well better is a highly subjective word.  Would you mind telling us what you liked and didn't like about the UE500 in terms of it's sound signature and presentation?  Was it too bassy or too muddy?  You know, that kind of thing.  Thanks!

Thanks for the advice everyone. I think i'll give the UE 900s a try.

I owned a pair of UE 700s. I'm not sure how they compare to similarly priced earphones now, but at the time I thought the sound quality was amazing for their price bracket and size... and they were extremely comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, durability was a downside and the cable jack came off after a month or two of use.

I haven't heard the SE535 nor the W4R so I can't say about those.  I also haven't heard the UE900 just yet, but I should in the next day or two, so I'll be able to give you some impressions on them then.  However, my understanding of the UE900 so far is that it's got a bit of a U signature, which should translate into a pleasurable Pop and R&B experience.


Thank you, Haha it's not a problem i'm glad to be in this forum, is the UE 900 got flat sound?

Hey there guys, unfortunately I opend a thread where I ask your opinion but I didn't see this thread beforehand.
So I'm looking for a pair of earphones under 100$ but I'm willing to take it up a notch if the product worth it.
Thanks in advance, Lior.

How about more details? What timbre, sound, what do you expect and need...?

Well, I'm looking for a clear and neutral sound, but a punchy bass at the same time, I prefer a removable cable and a good build quality is a most.
Comfort and isolation is also an important factor, where I'm going to use these for 3-4 hours of use each time.
I have a wide variety of generes that I listen to, from dubstep to jazz and from rap to rock.
So I do need an overall good sound but still. I'm a bass lover but I can't stand over quantities of bass.

A cheaper option could be the Brainwavz M4, a more pricy the Meelectronics A161P (see joker's review), but I don't know any IMEs with detachable cable in this price range that would also meet your other requirements (e.g. Shure SE215 are too dark/bassy and warm).

Well is there any other solution then switching the cables by yourself when buying an IEM?

Can I do this stuff by myself or is this more expert oriented?

By the by, where can I get either of these?

Cause I live in Israel and sadly I need a site with shipping to Israel.

It depends on your skills and earphones structure. I wouldn't undertake by myself. I have one recabled IEMs into headset (I payed for this).
