Probably a model with dynamic driver.. HY3 comes to my mind first.. You can also wait for HY5 too..

 

Maybe Phil himself can help you too or other users with more CE experience.

You could also wait for the BA5 to be released, its supposed to have a more v-shaped sound signature, which probably means pretty good bass, not sure if its true though...

The HY3 is currently out of stock and the HY5 wont be anytime soon, plus it sounds a little bit too expensive for me tbh. :(

Did Phil tell you that the HY5 wasn't going to be any time soon?

I have to buy a new iems (I lost it), I find this thread about Cosmic Ears and they catch my attention.

 

I used Shure 535, I liked much them. I am among Shure 536, Westone 4R/40 or Cosmic Ears BA4/HY3.

 

My doubts is about sound quality, are the Comisc Ears in sound quality better, similar or worst than Shure 535? What is more balanced BA4 or HY3? 

 

Thanks.

I've only listened to the 535 for a bit, but I did like the BA4 more. I'm not sure if I even used the right tips, but my BA4 does sound a bit more clear.

Since I own the fun version, I'd say the reference version would definitely win on the clarity part against the 535. 

 

Then again, you can always try the 535s, and return them if you don't like them (if that store would allow it).

Considering picking up a pair of these as my first CIEM. I'm new to CIEMs in general and was wondering to what extent do the vented bass drivers leak sound?

I believe CE monitors don't have vent system, even some of them uses dynamic drivers.

Thread Starter 

Usually when you hear the term "vented bass driver" it refers to the driver itself, which vents internally in the CIEM shell. Most of them don't require an actual vent in the shell itself. When you see a port in the shell, it usually means you're dealing with a dynamic driver design, which needs the airflow. So Futursonics needs a vent, and hybrids like the Unique Melody Merlin do as well, but not designs with vented armature drivers.

I'm coming from SE215s, which I find a tad bass heavy (though I also have DT770s and HD598s), would one of the three driver models (BA or Hybrid) be a significant improvement over what I have or would I need to go further up?

 

Essentially, the reason for getting a new pair is that I find foam tips relatively uncomfortable for long periods and the silicone tips both don't provide a good enough seal and leak a tad much for me, in addition to them being a tad bass heavy, but I figure I might as well upgrade at the same time if I can. 

 

Being located in Ireland, CE is near enough that getting customs shouldn't be that inconvenient.

Thanks a lot, this is way better explanation. Thumbs up for project86.

I'm seriously considering a pair of these now, does anyone know the average time on the waiting list at the moment or when they'll go back to taking orders?

post #3627 of 5221

As far as I know they are taking orders. Just get in touch with them

post #3628 of 5221
The website is super confusing...

You can ask to be put on a waiting list and be contacted when they're ready to take orders if you aren't logged in, but once you do you just request them to enable the shop or something and then you can order normally?

Cheers though!

just do a shop request?

Find Cosmic ears on skype and talk to them... The order process is a bit unclear
