I wish these had more bass, I can only listen to certain genres with these. They sound great with classical and jazz though.

I wonder if the Vsonic GR01 has a bit more bass than the R50, because honestly I think my GR01 has the perfect amount of bass. I think they sound great with everything from metal to jazz, to ambient, to dubstep. The GR01 doesn't even drop off that badly in the sub-bass. They are still pretty powerful even down at 30hz. I'm extremely pleased, especially considering the size and the fact that they are balanced armatures.

I would suggest ts400 comply tips.  They will fit the R50 and definitely curb the treble.  Personally, these did not work for me as the slight foam overhang kept squishing closed in my tight ear canals, therefore, the sound would cut out.  However, these could be the perfect fit for you happy_face1.gif     

 

I have found a perfect fit with the medium klipsch oval tips from my s4i.  They are the right size for the small nozzle of the R50 and install quite easily.  I have also found the klipsch tips to improve the bass response due to the comfortable, and rather effortless, insertion.  Also, they remain seated and comfortable through long and active sessions working outside.  The memory wire has become second nature and the R50 just slips into position now  atsmile.gif

I own both GR01 and R50, both with custom tips. There are two main differences: R50 have better soundstage and more bass.

Those are the only two places where the R-50 have been available since Techno Kid introduced us to these IEMs.  Have you looked into the For Sale forum to see if anyone is selling a pair?

Yep, although I'm not crazy about buying second hand IEM's.

 

Oh well, I'm perfectly fine snagging another B2 or DBA-02 MkII if these aren't available.

Write the manufacturer an e-mail asking them when they will be available again.

I ordered these earphones from domestic Australian store and they email me that it is no longer available and they will send me new model R50m which is the same as the R-50 with an in-line microphone and remote for use on smartphones. Guys what tips would you sagest for this earphones?

post #1065 of 1161

So I am thinking about getting these, my only problem is that everyone is saying if your music isn't high quality enough then this well make it sound worse..

 

So my question is, is 210-224~ kbps good enough? or will it sound bad?
