Unable to see the top 5 best IEM ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Why I'm unable to see the top 5 list in this website URL: http://www.head-fi.org/products/category/universal-fit

 

the maximum that I can see after sorting back and forth is just Sennheiser IE-8 at rank #5 ?

I think the rank is overall including all other types of headphones.  So the top ranked ( at #5 overall ) IE-8 is the best IEM according to the reviews.

Yes that is true, I was considering to buy based on head-Fi forum thread review and Amazon star ratings because I cannot try the unit.

Between Sennheiser IE80 and Westone W4.

Sennheiser IE80 is a dynamic IEM for bassheads.

 

The W4 is a top tier quad balanced armature IEM and the best universal I've ever heard. It's quite neutral.

The head gear ratings system is quite screwy and not at all a barometer for making purchasing choices.

Alphabetically:

Audeo Phonak PE232
Etymotic ER4PT
Sennheiser IE80
Shure SE535
Westone 4R

These four to one degree or another are considered good universal fit IEMs in the $300-$600 price range. Each has it's own advocates and detractors.

Good Luck,

Bob
