Excessive usage of your 149 band equalizer system. wink.gif


HA, HA.  It is 49 and not 149.  Actually 45.......you know why.  24 bit/96 kHz tracks help, too.

You should definitely try some Grados for home use. The R50s are definitely nice, but my SR225i are WOW! in comparison across the board.

I just got my comply tx100 tips and it really took a lot of treble out of them. I don't like them very much but at this point I like it better than the tips the r50 came with because I can listen a little louder at work without people saying they can hear my music from 3 cubicles away. Its also nice that they stay in all day without adjustment. I don't like they comply tips straight out of my phone but with an external dac they sound pretty good. that's weird.

R-50 chew acoustic tracks like this up for breakfast / lunch / dinner. The timbre soaks up vocals and acoustics guitars so well.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

I think I'm learning this IEM fairly well, it might not want to play ball with everything but when it does it hits home runs.

I took the plunge guys and ordered the R-50 as my first solid IEM.  Can't wait for them to arrive!  Also picked up some Sony EPEX10A/BLK Hybrid Replacement Earbuds (Black).  

 

Thank you all for your imput and reviews.  I just hope that the bass isn't too refined for me.  Currently I use a pair of S4s at work and ATH-m50's at home.

FYI the Sony earbuds won't fit the R50 if that's what you expected.

SOB.  This post a few pages back led me to believe that the Sony's would indeed fit... and I've never been a big fan of foam tips.  So they really won't fit?

Those fit my R-50's just fine.

These GR07 hybrid clones fit. (very similar to Sony hybrids)

I'll try for you now.

It's a good match, very good match, feels like someone took a rev limiter off compared to Colorfly C3. Sounds much fuller right across the board, The problem I felt with C3 was it felt like there was some resistance which is sometimes a common problem with the Colorfly. The Clip doesn't feel like it's fighting with the R-50, to put the music across. Pretty impressed. Good balance, trebles a little happier than other sources I've used, good bass response,I actually like it lol. Nice......

Edit: can someone else that has a Clip+ and R-50 confirm this? . Something magical going on here, it's workingnicely with many more genre's I couldn't get to sound right before. Give it a try!

I don't have any experience with the C3, but I think my Clip+ does well with brighter phones like my R-50s or Grados because it seems to have a slightly warm sound. Maybe it's my imagination smily_headphones1.gif

It's a much better pairing than with C3, treble especially has come right out, to a point I can now understand what TheGame21x was mentioning in his review. it's a little over happy with some tracks, but for my tastes I don't mind it slapping a touch. The main thing here it sounds much fuller like the headstage has expanded like someone turned a tap on that was only dripping previously with a much thicker / fuller sound, with correct bass response. I didn't expect the paring to work so well.

Sounds like a killer setup for only $150. $120 for the R-50, and $30 for a clip+. Who says you have to be rich to get good sound....
