Hey guys, im curious of current owners. 1 thing I havent seen talked about much on these CIEMs, are; 

 

How is isolation compared to other CIEMs? The merlins seem perfect for me besides the idea of them being vented. I just wanna make sure not a ton of noise is coming inside. 

 

On a different subject:

Anyone have impressions of the Merlins vs Hifiman HE-500s?

I'm also interested in this. I have read that it's good but a little less than other customs. Project86 describes it in his review.

For those who have both the Merlins and the mg6pro, how does the isolation between the two compare?

Isolation is actually pretty good on the Merlin.  It has a hole in it so it's a little susceptible to wind noise but it's leagues better than a sennheiser ie8.  I don't think anyone would have any problem with the Merlin as it nearly isolates as good as my Miracle.

I'll chime in to say that the Merlin isolation was surprisingly good.

It looks like I'm taking the plunge and getting a set of Merlins.  :-D

 

Is there any reason to do flat sockets rather than recessed?

Only if you want to play around with a lot of aftermarket cables!

 

Most good cable manufacturers make cables compatible with our recessed sockets these days!
