Audio-Technica's New Multidriver IEMs: The ATH-IM Series - Page 24

post #346 of 427

I'm curious, are the IM02s as source dependant as the IM03s and 04s?  A friend wanted me to pick up the IM04s for him the next time I'm in Japan, but I find the IM03s do not sound their best with certain phones or tablets.  He doesn't want to use an amp either as he would be using the IM04s for commuting...

Anyone can compare the sound of Aurisonics ASG2 to IM04?
post #348 of 427

IM04's seemed to have come down on Amazon Japan somewhat, look to be more like $435 or so, with another  $20 to ship using Tenso.

 

Beats the current $515 to $700+ prices on ebay.

Are the ATH-IM50 or ATH-IM70 better for pop and rock music?

post #350 of 427

I am very interested in IM01, anyone can talk about your sound signature? can someone do a comparison between it and im50/im70? IM01 has a good amount of bass? more than my AKG 420?

 

sorry for my english.

post #351 of 427

Not very many interested in the single armature model. Doubtful they have a good amount of bass or really good bass extension. If you want bassy like or more than the K420 probably best to stick to dynamics like the IM70. Not much is known. Maybe translate any Amazon Japan IM01 reviews etc. into your preferred language and see if there is any good info there.  

post #352 of 427

So to get a sense, the IM70 can have the same amount of bass that akg420? I want a little more bass than the AKG.

Hey all I know this post is off thred but..
I recently bought a pair of westone um pro 30 in ear moniters and I was wondering what anyone has thought about the cables? The gauge is a lot smaller than the shure cables should I upgrade the cable to the heavier gauge shure cable??
Thoughts ideas??

I've purchased and used the ATH-IM01, and personally I find that it is very neutral sounding and extremely pleasant to listen to. If you're not going to tweak any EQ settings (like I did on my FiiO X3), I find that the bass and treble is very well balanced. For those songs that have rumbling bass (again, with flat EQ settings) the ATH-IM01 really delivers.

 

It's not very fatiguing to listen to as well; the trebles aren't super spiky sharp unlike the ATH-IM02 (Do give those a try if you have the chance).


If you intend to have a decent IEM that's for daily use, do consider the ATH-IM01.

As for the ATH-IM02, it is truly an exceptional BA IEM, with the soundstage being pretty wide and trebles being super clear (might be super sharp too; but that's my personal experience).


I was torn between the SE215 LTD Edition and the ATH-IM01; after 2 hours of testing within the shop itself (pretty sure they've clocked over 100 hours for each of the IEMs), I found that the ATH-IM01 stands out pretty well to me.

 

Hope it helps.

Good on you! I found the IM01 and IM02 favorable as well :)

Has anyone tried using the Philips SHE3590's or JVC fx40's tips on the IM50?

post #358 of 427

For those having problems finding tips, try the Complys that came with your IEMS, but reverse them so their bottoms are facing out. You get the same fit and isolation but you also keep the highs

post #359 of 427
Anybody finding it tough to get a good fit? Any tips recommendations? I'm thinking it may be the weird angled design of the nozzle that is obstructing the fit. Otherwise it is really a great pair of IEM especially at its unbeatable price point.
post #360 of 427

I use hybrids on my IM50, and also have comfort problems sometimes; I think it's the length of the nozzles rather than the angle.
