this is one heck of a hilarious statement. Yeah. ME TOO. I'm digging the exquisite sound I'm getting from my Panasonics. As the owner of UE 700, TF 10, VSONICS, FXT90, and Miles Davis Trumpets, I can't believe the sound from these and the Skullcandy Ink'd buds. In aural Heaven.

Oh and one last thing before I leave this page, and hopefully aware buyers will not get roped into any unjust hype, but the LG Quadbeat also outdistances the Delta's in sonic ability, clarity, and bass control/articulation, and these things are the same price as the Deltas. I know. I bought a pair for my daughter, because she didn't like the sound she got from the Delta's, or the driver flex. She loves the LG Quadbeats. Just for your information. Be vigilant, folks! And don't believe all the hype...

Balanced and differing impressions are welcome. I'm not sure why so aggressive. I really enjoy the delta signature. It, the soundmagic e10 and Sony mh1 are my favorite budget iems. I will be hearing the new quadbeats soon though.

I think you'll enjoy the Quadbeats. They are superior to the MH1C is most areas except sub bass depth. The Sony's have that tendency to have uncontrolled bass, while the Quads are tight and articulate. They don't have the reach down low though. The QB 2's on the other hand, do dig deeper and stronger, with less sparkle up top. My daughter got the Quadbeats and my brother got the QB 2's. I'm buying some Quads because I don't need as much sub bass action, plus I can EQ the bass up and the treble down and get the signature I enjoy most. 

 

Sorry if I came off as aggressive, but from my experience, my daughter's experience, and a fellow head-fi'er who i know who spoke earlier about his disappointment in these, I'm just trying to stem the hype just a bit, since there's much better out there for the same price, but I do respect your opinions. You and jant. I've followed several of your reviews. My apologies.

If you like budget cut IEM you need to check out the Zero Audio stuff too. wink.gif

i've heard good things about the ZERO AUDIO basso and their single armature iem, but I've never heard them or tried them live.

I understand wanting to slow hype on something you don't agree with. It's often hard to accomplish and maintain a balanced approach; I've been there too.

MH1 definitely needs eq on the deep bass to bring them more towards a neutral sig.

I don't know anything about zero audio. I'll have to read about it.

My favorites for cheap enjoyable sound recently have been the Delta, Maxell CN40, and Sony HPM78. Delta has the best build but lower technical capability than the other two. Further back the GR02(actually RO2 Pro before the "G") was a cheap favorite as well as the Senn CX250. Kanen KM-948, Cyclone PR1 Pro, and PL30 certainly worth mentioning from back a ways. Lots of good cheap stuff that has been quite a bit of fun.

 

Notice how I still gave the Delta a nice review cause they have something to offer. I feel the HPM78 toasted them and were better than the MH1 and possibly the Quadbeat. I gather I would like them better cause the Sony had some of the lowest reaching bass(and not as much as say the MH1) and good treble reach as well plus a great signature. Maybe some hype with Delta, with DSnuts(as per his usual) or even this thread title cause they are not the champs. The point is that it is probably best to hold the tongue and understand people either get along better with a phone or get carried away or excited a bit in their writing and just adjust mentally to it and trust others are doing the same (which they are). The urge to correct or balance any exaggeration out may be strong but it will lessen:) Plenty of us have been there and in the end it is just a bunch of budget phones and not worth getting worked up about or getting into arguments over. I think once you've been around here long enough most develop a hype filter as well as some other necessary filters.

Just looked up those Sony HPM78, and they are shaped like the Sennheiser CX and to a lesser extent, my AT-EP1's. Those are the earphones that fit me best due to my wonky left ear canal. How are the sound from those? Are they similar to vsonic or even the Quads? Or does it have that trademark Sony dark sound?

I think that you have issues...

For your reference, I listen to music to enjoy, not to overanalyze or to worry about sonic accuracy. I am beyond that point. I did that for many years. Like you are doing right now. I was so inmature! Most of what I listen is rock and dance music. Maybe if I were only focused on classical music, my focus would be different, maybe not. I leaned that accuracy in sound reproduction and enjoyment of audio material does not always intersect. I am glad your daughter found something she likes, but maybe it is you influencing her...

a day late and a dollar short, George, but carry on! Glad you like to rock! So do I.

Shotgunshane I am interested in E10 as well but before I pull a trigger I would like to read head to head comparison between E10 and Delta so if you don't mind would you please do the comparison between these 2 phones?

Thanks

A bit earlier than the MH1 but tuned closely to that signature. Seemingly the first phone they tuned that way and there may have been early 78's( and similar looking 77's) that aren't and pretty much too bassy blah stock buds. There was this point where the phone makers decided to start actually care about the stock buds sound quality more :) than before or so it seemed. Again tuned like the MH1 but not the micro driver. They differ from CX's as they have angled tubes. A little too bassy with the stock tips for me but the midbass was better controlled than the MH1C and sounds like(only based on what I read since I never tried them) they would reach lower than the Quadbeat. They were on the darker side but the treble was quick well extended and had a surprising effect. The effect was that they seem dark but when A/B-ing with other phones the treble reach and quality and how much it was apparent was always better than I thought going in vs. phones like the TF10 and GR07. The other phones would seem to be able to kill them in treble but the Sony bass and mids might win and then yes the Sony bass and mids would win but the treble would be closer than thought and sometimes less peaky or preferable in smoothness and or tone. Oh and the depth was another big selling point. Wider than tall and quite deep. That was another plus over the MH1 since the bigger housings seemed to help them get some more depth.

 

@Shane, just read the E10 comparison and that does ring true. Haven't had a SM phone in a while but the Delta do have a similar presentation to the better SM phones.
