The most overrated IEMs - Page 4

post #46 of 199
JVC FX700. Excellent IEM, don't get me wrong, but it isn't as good as the EX1000 and it has a few usability caveats. The Ety ER4 as well for me.

Yes, but you're the one who owns them. Besides, if you really take care I doubt they'l be damaged.

Dale told me that they can't be replaced already.  So any change I make is permanent.  So if I make a change, all comparisons essentially invalidate themselves as it won't be the ASG-1.2 vs [insert IEM], it'll become modded ASG-1.2 vs [insert IEM].  I want my comparisons to be easily redone without the need to damage anything.  This mod is permanent, so it will "damage" the model.

Klipsch Image S4s. Every time I put them in my ears, I long for the mids of my Q701s. They are alright for EDM though.

the jh-13 is pretty darn good, and it really isn't hyped. it's just a superb device. the originally jh-3a, as demo'd at canjam in chicago, had even better performance. that really was incredible!   and while it isn't an iem, the stax sr-009 may prove to be pretty close to perfect.

My biggest disappointment was Phonak Audeo PFE112.

Great expectations from all these reviews and "best-of charts"

Just flat, narrow, dead - nothing clear, crisp and detailed,

most of my sub $50 IEMs exceed them easily (at lest for me)

Atrio AtrioX - utter rubbish.

That's pretty harsh. smile.gif

I bought my TF10s for $150 (with the vi cable), a good price IMO.

 

My issue with expensive IEMs is not the price/performance of the IEMs, but the cables. I have had my TF10s for about a year, and am well into my 3rd cable.

 

This is also why I will never consider IEMs without removable cables, especially at these price points.

what the man said

re-zero is a great iem IF you like neutral,balanced sound.

I agree with this - same cable quality issue for me.

Shure SE535, I own them and I truly regret buying it.

 

XBA , terrible series.

 

IE80 to some degree, it does its job, but it's not a miracle IEM or anything. Bit overpriced, just like SE535. I still do enjoy listening to IE80 time to time.

post #58 of 199

For the money, SE535 I agree...

for me had to be klipsh s4

post #60 of 199

Hmmm, it seems like Klipsh keeps coming up often in this thread.

 

I have not listened to the S4s, but one of the biggest IEM disappointments I have come across are the x10s.
