Is there any IEM similar to Sony Ex1000?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

I cannot forget my time with my ex1000,

but it's isolation is not functioning at all,

and it is the most uncomfortable IEM I have ever come across, so I sold it to my friend.

Here's the problem, I need something sounds exactly the same or similar to it,

wide soundstage, details, nice treble and vocal

Of course, it should have good isolation with comfort.

Is such a thing exist?

Thanks

Unfortunately not exactly. The poor isolation of the Sony gives it a really special soundstage & it is a stunning sounding phone. Better isolation and 90% of sound is GR07 (thinner sounding but equally fast & transparent), best isolation and 95% of sound is Westone 4.

The um3x and SM3 are also awesome but differ even more in terms of sound.

Just my two cents.

+1 for gr07. reminds me strong of the ex1000. cheaper alternative is imo ue200.

Audio-Technica's CK100pro comes to mind. One of the very few universals I'll put in the same breath as EX1000, very similar signature but much better ergonomics and isolation.

Thanks for your idea, I have never though of that, will try to get my hand on GR07 tomorrow.

W4 is another nice suggestion, but it sounded boring with my ipod mini.

May I ask what setup are you using now?

as the CK100pro I have tried was quite different from Ex1000,

although i tried it before purchasing ex1000.
