IE80 VS Heir Audio 3.Ai

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all, this is my first post here~

 

I live in Singapore, and right now I'm in a dilemma in which to choose. I can get the IE80 at around 70USD cheaper than the Heir Audio (due to shipping and tax). Which one is nicer sounding? Which has better value? I listen to all current music, mainly the popular ones, such as those top 40 hits and what not. Also comfort is important to me too! Currently own reshelled tf10, um1 and owned um3x before.

 

Thanks all!!!

(its my exam period now, so pretty hard to audit, need an iem to tide me through my exams!

I'm also stuck between these two IEMs. I'm leaning toward the IE80 but I really have no idea.

I will be getting a loan of the IE80 soon.  I can do this comparison when that happens.

Currently have ie-80 (with silver cable) and waiting for 3ai. One of them will have to go, probably ie80 but that's because of the requirements i have for iem to stay (good isolation, small so it can easly go under the helmet). I am not great with describing what i hear as i never tried (just head-fi lurker ;)) but i'll try to answer any questions you may have.

Cos of conversion and shipping... I tried my friend's ie80, and wow i loved it alot. But i follow my gut instinct and bought 3.ai from a reseller here in singapore. And wow. I am sure glad i spent that extra money! Compared to it, ie80 has more bass, but the 3.ai is more hard hitting and much more precise and enjoyable to listen to. The vocals are sweet too, and treble smooth enough for my taste. My perfect iem i have to say! Loving my music more and more!!!
