Having IEMs like the UERM makes it quite easy honestly. With the Tralucent I never used the 7550s anymore. They are good but once you move up you do see their flaws compared to the other IEMs. It just raises the bar and makes going back to the previous IEM that much harder. I found myself not enjoying my music trying to re-assimilate instead of enjoying the music.

I own a pair of HD800s...and going from that to my Grado SR60s is not that hard.  I try to change things up a bit by trying to use all the headphones I own.  I guess with IEMs it is easier to just own one or two TOTL models since you don't need a portable (I use the PX100) or isolating (use the DT1350) headphones since one IEM takes cares of most needs.

Got that right. UERM and IM03 cuts it for me.

Haha...I don't believe this.  I bet you are selling the 7550 so you can buy more stuff.  ;)

7550 can be purchased for as low as $229.99 +  free shipping

(hint:  New York based retailer, started company by catering to A/V professionals)

 

as for the ATH IM__ lineup, initial reviews say IM02 is the better value, but very selective whne it comes to source(s) and output impedance must be no greater than 1 Ohm.

I think I'll eventually get around to buying this IEM.  Seems right up my alley, but I've got too many in the stable right now to think about another purchase.

Is the cable on the 7550 detachable?

post #145 of 176
Yes, it is.
post #146 of 176

Do the cables on the 7550 use a standard connection or do they use a Sony connection?

post #147 of 176
looks proprietary to me.

also i think the earguides for the ex600/1000 and mdr 7550 is the best in the IEMs segment because it is very flexible and made of non skin irritant material.

Standard Sony connection. 7550, EX600/800/1000 all have the same connection.

Do any of you guys know if there are shorter after market cables for the 7550 or would I have to find one from sony?
