Mine definitely doesn't stiffen in colder weather.

So would there be a clear cut choice for anyone between the IE60 and the Hifiman RE-400?  I can get both for the same price.  (around 100$ cdn)

 

I figured the IE60, having a much higher regular price tag, would be in a whole different category. But after reading here and there, I'm not so sure, and actually leaning towards the Hifiman.

 

Since I own a pair of Senns Momentum (over hear) and very much like them, I've also considered the Momentums in-ear.

 

Opinions?

Don't know about the hifiman but coming from a GR07, I find the sennheiser extremely enjoyable.

Sound signature varies greatly depending on tip, with the double flange there is far less boominess and a very even midbass to mids transition, giving it a clean sound with alot of texture in the bass, upper treble (I personally enjoy it, some might find it harsh) sounds the same with all tips I've tried. Off course all ears are different so ymmv.

Is it possible to wear the IE60's cable down like this guy wears his IE80's? :confused_face(1):

Yup. They can be worn down as well.

Well! It seems like might the right side of my IE60 has died. Started having static noises yesterday and today it doesn't have any sound at all. Emailed Sennheiser Canada regarding requesting a repair, because this is less than a year old. I suspect the cable inside has lost connection, because moving the cable yesterday seemed to fix it temporarily. 

 

Does anyone here have a similar experience?

 Got these today. Not fully burned in yet but I'm very impressed. Just listening to The Prodigy "The day is my enemy" and comparing them to Sony MDR-EX650, Shure SE215 and Sennheiser IE80. They are so much better than the Sonys that it's not even worth commenting on =] Also much better than the shures. More lows, clearer faster mids and better highs. They are actually very like the IE80s with a bit less low sub, a little less extended highs but more forward mids. This may all change after they have broken in for a few days. They have the same quality cable as the IE80s but non detachable. The ear pieces are really small, light and comfortable. I will update in a few days.

Thanks for the post mickrich. I also listen to The Prodigy and I'm happy with IE60. The comparison between IE60 and the rest of the iem's you mentioned was also very interesting. I'd like to read more on how they compare to IE80. :)

Having owned both. Sold my IE60 to someone I work with so still listen to them now and then.

The 80 has more bass and a slightly nicer treble, 60 the mids are more pronounced. The recessed mids makes the 80 feel wider. 60 has a very intimate feeling.

IE60 vocals sound more intimate and they are the high point. IE80 has this deeper bass slam which is fun.

The 60 is underrated. If I had to choose between the 2, I would say 60 for value for money and the mids.


I will add that I love the IE80 as well. Its not 1 is better than the other but rather different signatures.

Thanks for your excellent post fsi22:)

 

I'd also like to ask this; Is there a significant difference between IE60 and IE80 in the department of Instrument Separation or are they pretty much in the same level?

80 has better seperation and impact with instruments, it feels like that's what they were made to excel at,whereas the 60 shines with vocals.
