So how do these compare to EPH-100 and MOE SS01?
Is the detail/speed/resolution comparable to BA like B2, DN-1000?
I made a thread yesterday in the recommendations section asking about IEMs, but didn't get much of a response.
In case you can't read all that, I'm basically looking for a durable, very well built, well isolating and comfortable pair of IEMs that could suit my preference as a lover of how the Sennheiser HD558s sound.
I was originally working with a $60~ budget, but now I'm thinking of spending a maximum of $150 since these are a need I'll always have. As you can see, I was recommended the EPH-100s in that thread, and although their sound seems very appealing, I was put off by reports of failure. I want this investment to be as safe as possible, since I want the IEMs to last "forever".
So after looking around more in the famous over 300 IEM shootout thread, I came upon these, and obviously their seemingly excellent build quality is very appealing, and they seem to be well reviewed. As someone with a very limited amount of experience in terms of headphones though, I wonder if their sound signature will appease me.
I've been considering this and the GR07 BE, as well as possibly the FXT90s, although the intended over-ear use of the MA750 and GR07 are initially more appealing. Open to more suggestions though.
I didn't hear any of them, but DN-1000 is triple hybrid with Dual BA TWFK and one dynamic driver for bass. So you get very detailed, neutral and fast mids / highs from the Balanced Armatures and airy, extended bass from the dynamic driver. Maybe somebody who owns both can compare, but I bet that DN-1000 is clear winner.
Glad you found my post amusing. I did not ever say that MA750 are not capable IEM and they sure are steal for the price but DN-1000 are too. Gyrael asked what could be better in similar price so I gave him a suggestion. Also I saw some posts from ppl owning both in this thread claimed DN-1000 to be superior in SQ but the matter of MA750 vs DN-1000 is a still question of sound signature preference more than SQ.
If you really want a steal for a price look for Xiaomi Pistons 2.0. $19 dollar headphones that forced some people to sell their more expensive IEM including KEF M200 :)
Thanks but I already ordered the MA750i. I'd rather have the build quality anyway though. It looks more than slightly better.
I wear glasses and when I'm at work I listen to my RHA750i's for extended periods without any issues.
We've not had any reports of them proving uncomfortable for glasses-wearers at all! In fact there's a fair few of our team who wear glasses and get along fine with them.
