Atrio M5 With MG7 Driver[REVIEW] - Page 2

post #16 of 26

really think the soundstage of these phones are really narrow. That's the reason I sold them the other day.

I'm one that feels the soundstage is average but when I pair it with my little FiiO E6 it adds a nice bit of width and depth and gives them an over all larger feel.  They still aren't huge or anything but it makes them much more cohesive and full.

I don't think they're as narrow as most say and if you have a decent amp they open up nicely.  Also the bi flange tips they come with gives them a bigger soundstage than with the foam, I think the size of the opening in tips has something to do with it as well.  On my R-50's when I use the Atrio bi flange tips they increase the soundstage on thoughs to which is really good because there's is already above average.  

 

I never was one that thought tips made that much of a difference you get a good seal and they sound good but after using the bi flange and actually hearing a difference I'm now a believer.

Good call on the MG7/IE8 comparison. The bass certainly felt better on the MG7 to me, which is the selling point of both iems. If only the same thing could be said about the MG7's build quality (my MG7s and the previous gen M5 loved to fail on me, and FS loves to send me dodgy, non functional replacements but that's a different story).

 

Just shows how overpriced the IE8/IE80 is, save for the awesome build quality.

Great review, sir.

 

I've been back and forth on if I should get these... I already have a TF10 and HJE900 (might even have a GR07 on the way). Getting back into the IEM game sure does put the hurt on ones wallet haha

can't believe they discontinued these. Perhaps their next model won't be ugly as heck! :deadhorse:

Bad job outta them, lol. Real smooth, the whole one product flowing into another thing they did there.:rolleyes: No new product or info for months and months. Almost more tempted to believe the reports/rumors they weren't gonna make any more universals at this point than a new product is coming.

noooooo! I hope they do.  Their sound signature is to die for.

You can still buy the Atrio directly from Future Sonics as they have a reserve for their pro-customers, etc. But, yes, it's discontinued otherwise.

 

Yes, I spoke to FS and I can confirm that Future Sonics is in the process of designing a new universal iem. I can't say any more than that (other than it'll be a while, they are very deliberate as things have to not only sound great, but also be reliable). I for one am very interested in what they will come up with!
