No offense but as you said this is an open forum, so I think everyone has right to question the validity of others' recommendation. I personally wouldn't recommend any IEM unless I own/owned/demo'd that IEM; I don't think it is too much to ask whether you have at least listened to the IEMs you recommended.

 

Anyways, just for the sake of recommendation, I wholeheartedly recommend Audio-Technica CK10 & CK100 Pro, good ol' ER-4S and if the OP can afford/find one, j-phonic k2 SP or FitEar F111.

It may have not been an attack, but it came across to me as rather sarcastic.  I'm sure that's probably how ZARIM took it, also.

 

To the OP:  Unless you list some criteria ($ amount, genre of tunes, amped/unamped, etc) you're going to get recommendations all over the place.  In my experience, headstage in an IEM has been rather difficult to get.  Most IEMs have sounded like just, IEMs.  The two that pop into my mind has having some semblence of a "headstage" were the IE8's and the e-q7's. 

 

As for clarity in the treble, as others have mentioned, the CK10s are supberb, as are the ER4S (and the 4B, if you really want to maximimize on the higher frequencies).  I've personally not come across an IEM that has the both the clarity and headstage, at least not the way you're describing.

 

Good luck in your search.

 

Cheers.

I am using my Sony MDR 7550 for tow months now and will highly recommend them to you. The soundstage is awsome, bass is solid and

highs are crisp and well extended.  The more I use them the better they get.

I completely understand cn11's frustration. Zarim has a tendency of sprouting off a list of iems that sound nothing alike. More often not not, I've heard the iems he lists, and they a) are totally different sigs, or b) do not match the OP's criteria. This has been going on for the entirety of my 2 years on this site.

 

 

As for the request, I think the JVC FXD80 would really suit your desire for sparkle and spaciousness. It also doesn't forget the low end like the Etys do. It's a very clean overall sound.

Based on your title, definitely ocharaku flat 4 kaede. It's very 3 dimensional and highs is the best, yet other frequency performs good as well.

Of all the iems I have owned, the Miracles have the best soundstage. And the highs are very precise. Tralucent 1plus2 and Kaede are also good competitors.

The GR07 with extended highs? No way. I owned the MKII version for some days and ended up selling them precisely because they had very little energy in the highs region.

 

I know I'm probably get bullied by this, but I would recommend the Sony MH1. I still consider it has the most coherent 3D presentation among all IEMs I own (look at my signature), and very extended highs (you have to consider that the best sound out of them is obtained by wearing them with a shallow insertion, as the manufacturer recommends).

Are you kidding? The GR07 isn't extended and airy enough, so you recommend the Sony MH1?

 

Literally every other IEM in your sig, apart from the Radius (which I haven't heard) is airier than the MH1...unless you're using the MH1 without tips...

Definitely. And is not only my opinion, it's the opinion of several people (not "ordinary people", so to speak, but people that have a lot of experience with IEMs) that have tried my pair of MH1. The GR07 sounds very congested compared to them. And no, I'm not using then without tips, I'm getting a perfect seal, I just don't insert them too deeply in my ear canal (if I do so, they do sound congested).

You must have some sort of limited edition, one-of-a-kind MH1 then, because my three pairs are far more congested than my GR07 (both bass edition and MKII).

 

The ONLY explanation for what you're hearing is that you're not getting any sort of seal with the MH1, otherwise you would not be hearing what you claim to be.

I'm simply trying to get you to offer something other than a 'recommendation list'. You populate various 'seeking advice threads' with your suggestions, without ever offering any of your own observations. Not once do you ever say 'I heard a very wide soundstage, but it is compressed top-to-bottom', or 'very good instrument tone compared to the IE8 I have' (and so-on and so-on). One is left doubting whether you have ever owned, or even personally heard, any of the pricey gear you recommend. 

 

And yes, I would not doubt the ER4P/S offer a detailed and extended sound, but what have you observed yourself? Does it have bite? Is it detailed yet smooth? How do they compare/differ specifically with any of the other IEM's you've owned? I am left to believe you just regurgitate what you've read by others for each of your 'recommendations'. Please correct me if I'm wrong. 

 

=========================================

 

FYI, straight from the posting guidelines in the Terms of Service:

 

Please don't recommend equipment you don't own or otherwise don't have a reasonable amount of familiarity with. You wouldn't recommend someone a car you've never driven or suggest someone live in a country you haven't been to, so recommending headphones and equipment you haven't owned or used is unhelpful. Even if you've seen the same comments about something from a dozen members, save discussion of that if you're intending to buy it yourself.

Totally agree. I received the MH1, listened and compared with the GR07 MK2, and chucked them in the drawer. Much more tubby sounding, congested bass, narrow soundstage, and restrained highs in comparison to the GR07.

I hope you're not being ironic with that "limited edition" comment, that wouldn't be very nice of you.

 

Haven't you thought that maybe your 3 pairs were defective? It wouldn't be hard to believe, given the seemingly poor QC that these IEMs appear to have. Besides, don't take it as an offense, but maybe you were not wearing them as they are intended to.

 

There's an interesting article about them. You've probably already read it though, but here it is anyway: http://rinchoi.blogspot.com/2013/02/sony-livesound-mh1-mh1c.html

Scratch that. I just pulled out the MH1C and compared it to the GR07 bass edition that I have on hand. Though the BE sounds slightly more open, the MH1 seems to have slightly more shimmery highs. The MKII, which sounds more open and clear than the BE, will undoubtedly be better than the MH1 at such. The BE seems to place more emphasis on the upper mids, whereas the MH1 doesn't. This opens the sound up there a bit more. Bass quality is similar between the two, so that's negligible.

 

Upon A/B comparison, you're (kind-of) right. My apologies.

 

Still, neither iem suits the OP's recommendation if he already owns the Bass Edition.

Maybe my pair of GR07 MKII (which was second hand, BTW) was the one with some issues, as my MH1 were notoriously brighter in the upper-high region, and sounded more airy and with better spatial positioning as well.

 

Anyway, I really appreciate you took the time to make a comparison smile.gif
