What are the biggest flaws of your favorite iems? - Page 6

post #76 of 99

I can honestly say that my e-Q5 has no flaws as far as I'm concerned.  It sounds as good and better in some instances than the SM3 V2, its built like a tank and looks great.  I had the silver ones for the first pair I bought and now I have the black because I didn't want to wait one day for the silver to be in (don't get me wrong I like the black), if that doesn't show how much I like them I don't know what will.

Waiting for the day that the e-Q5 ends up surpassing the SM3 v2 in your signature. biggrin.gif

XBA-4: Slight sibilants at the highs are there and the price?(Talking about the original price. I got mine for US255 at Japan. Lol, there was an offer for all the XBA line. XBA-1 buy one free one. XBA-3 was out though.) I wasn't told that until my dad came back from there so sorry for not posting it :/ 

 

CHEERS!

I love the Bose QC15's. They really work for me and I love the way they sound. I don't know about the Beats Solo HD though because they leak way too much. So if you're looking for a good "jam" then look no further. But I must say they are REALLY expensive, though I guess all good headphones are. So the leaking I guess

Thought I'd update.

 

Etymotic ER4S: rolled off sub-bass

 

Fitear F111: rolled off treble, ever so very slightly too much mid-bass affecting vocals (so slight but hey this thread is about complaints)

 

ASG-2: too much mid-bass, not enough sub-bass, vocals too warm 

 

Let's hear some more negatives, people. I know you have an iem with one tiny flaw that just frustrates you to no end. Let it all out haha.

Koss PortaPro: Feel rather weak, and the cable is really thin.

 

Bose OE-2: Cable is rather thin and doesn't reach the quality I expected.

 

Sennheiser HD-201: Cord too long for mobile use. (Perfect length for recording, though. Love these!)


None of these are IEMs........do you know what an In Ear Monitor is?

Have you tested the newer XBA line .Chances are that the XBA 40 , 30, 20 and 10 are much better.

In Ear Monitors people...little housings that plugs inside your ears. The solos and the QC15 are supraaural an over ear (bigger headphones with a headband). Come on read the thread's tilttle and avoid posting off-topic text!!!:mad:.

GR10:  Slight graininess and very picky on source.

 

W3:  The mid bass and a little artificial sounding treble.

Spiral Ear SE-5 disadvantage:

-demands VERY good source

-needs to be cleaned very often

I'm like a stuck record but custom tips FTW. smily_headphones1.gif
