Sennheiser IE60 Review and Impressions Thread ~ - Page 6

post #76 of 89

that's something that I may look into or am going to experiance because I'm getting these Sennheisers tomorrow and am excited! I am waiting to listen and enjoy!

U need to find some good tips and you will get a perfect seal and a good isolation despite they are semi-opened model. 
PS
Hifiman 700 with non-balanced adaptor matches IE60 perfectly, or even "Simply the best"(c) lol:)

I also thought that these Sennheiser's were versatile and can be worn both ways? but couldn't get a good sit in the right one it even hurt a little 

! And I don't know now? paid about $190

I've got big ears, so i don't have any problems with IE60. Try different tips, not Sennheiser tips, from any other IEMs.

PS
I can wear them both ways but mostly over ears.

I have tried them over ears and the are uncomfortable on my right ear and tried just a couple of different replacements . I did not try the Comply if they would work? I do like the sound and the full bodied but it wasn't wow even after I let them burn in for about 20 hrs. My CX-150 sound good but wanted to up-grade and here I am!

They will sound good after 100 hours, seriously.

The senns realy do open up after burn in time I realy liked them ,for the price you can't go wrong they are very underrated

These are going on sale at Visions Electronics in Canada on Friday, 300 units nation wide $98. Not seeing a lot of reviews on these I decided to grab a pair (nice GM at store let me get a pair early) so could give some impressions in case any Canadian Head-fi members are thinking about getting a pair.

Unlike the headphones I have reviewed lately these are more balanced sounding versus being bass heavy or V shaped. If anything these are slightly midrange forward and warm-ish with solid but not really heavy bass that appears to have the typical mid-bass hump of the Sennheiser IE line, and detailed and extended but not sharp treble. The sound stage is very nice and the imaging is also top notch, it reminds me of the IE8.

I will let them burnin over night and see if they start to change as the IE line tends to do and will post back my results.

So far I am not sure they are worth the full retail price but am confident they are well worth their $98 sale price.

 Shhhhhh! Don't get the word out, there are ONLY 300 chain wide and I don't want to miss out on another Sennheiser deal.

 

:eek:

See if you can sweet talk a store into giving you one early wink.gif

Anyone else pick these up at Visions for $98?? This is my first set of IEM and wow! This is quite a big step up from those Earpods I got with my phone!!!

Just bought these along with the Urbanite On Ear, So far really enjoying them.

Coming from the GR07 mkII, The Sennheiser is much more comfortable.I would go so far as saying that they are the most comfortable iem I have ever used,using the large tips that came with the Vsonic.

Soundwise the Vsonic hit every note for me while the Sennheiser IE60 is lacking in certain areas and overcompensating in others by comparison. Too much midbass for me and lacks the superb mids of the GR07 but that was expected. Doesn't sound bad by any standard, Very very good sounding without reaching great.

Finally it's not only sound that matters in pricing but also build quality,reliability and the overall package,so I would say that at $250 these are a good buy, although I did pay alot less.

Can anyone compare these to the SE215 LTD edition and Momentum In ears?
