   Sub-bass I couldn‘t imagine, almost non-existing mid-bass, recessed mids and prominent highs - a little piercing to me, but that depends on the person. For example I find my M-audio Q40 not sibilant at all, while many others state just the opposite.

well, so far i like them very much, but they have some prominent peaks in the upper highs. that is why i cannot relax with them. the silver bullets are more relaxing. i wish the sb would have the mids and instrument separation from the tandems.

I have not found any prominent points in the tandems at all, especially not the laid back highs. These things are so relaxing they could put me to sleep. Have you both burned them in and tried changing the tips about?

Have not heard any of the list, have had the m2s but don't bother with them.

 

I have heard Vsonic GR06 and GR07. I preferred the mid forward GR06. The Gr07 are quite dull and boring which you'd like but will have to harsh treble with peaks causing sibilance.

They sure won't, but that wasn't on your list. wink.gif  I still think the Philips SHE9900 would be well worth a try though.

 

Ok, one last suggestion: Koss KDX200

aso

something like a brighter sounding silver bullet?

My `non fatigue` iems are Brainwavz M1 and Soundmagic E30. Both are smooth, rather balanced and musical. can listen for long hours. may seem boring but not lifeless yet not too energetic. Safe sounds...

So far, Tandems have been the most relaxing and fatigue-free IEM till now and you found them to be having prominent peaks??

the koss that james adviced to, are about 100 eur. that seems too much for that phones in germany.

 

i wonder if the e30 will be better than the silver bullets as they are in the same price range.

 

are there no phones for lets say double the price that have a fatigue free sound? for example i owned the eph-100 which were too energetic and piercing in the highs. i still own the se215 which i can not stand more than 15 minutes, because they are far too aggressive although they have rolled of highs. but midrange and bass are annoying. 

 

i just can repeat: the most relaxed phones i know are the westone 4, but they do not rumble. i do not like armatures. so i will not need the detail they offer, but the smoothness combined with a nice little rumble that dynamic drivers can deliver.

I agree, €100 is too much. But you can get them for €55 (including shipping) from Amazon Italy.

 

The E30 and KDX200 are technically about on par and both very good value. The Koss is a bit darker than the E30, here's my short comparison.

will they be an up- or a sidegrade to silver bullets and tandems?

 Did you use a search engine to find that price ?

^ No, I just happened to find out by chance that certain phones (and watches, btw) were way cheaper from Amazon Italy than Germany, so I pay them a visit every now and then. wink.gif
