RBH EP2 -- are these really "the best $200 earphones"? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
The wire cutter has the absolute worst reviews. Complete garbage.

Their reviews for headphones seem more competent than IEMs. Also, they seem to align with what I'd select (or close, at least) in many of the other electronics categories.

 

That said, the site as a whole is hit or miss, in my experience. I'd compare it to how I use Wikipedia when researching stuff for my college classes: a good starting point, but not the best choice as a final, authoritative source. ;)

So since you all do not believe that the EP2's are not the best or one of the better options, what do you think are the best in the sub $200 range, that include a mic (and controls if possible)?

Taking into consideration the strike I've put through your qoute, this is the best $200 IEM I know of right now.

I have just ordered the Rbh-ep2 over the B&W C5 because I did a lot of research and I know everyones ear size is different. I just know they will please me and hope they will astonish me! I own a pair of Bowers&Wilkins P7's and they have a very great sound with durability and quality. With my Fiio E12 amp they kick. I would have bought the C5's if I knew about them in time but maybe next time! I would like to know how the B&W C5's sound ,meaty,highs,mids and overall performance for on the go with ipod 4rth gen touch and sony mp3 -walkman.

 I went and bought the RBH-ep2's and they were not what I expected :( 

My Skullcandy Titans had more highs! The fit was great and the bass was their and all the essentials but the sound wasn't. I do want to up grade from my skullcandy's and get a decent pair of $100 in-ear headphones. I had a pair of Sennheisers cx-150 along time ago don't remember but think they were good so I was going to upgrade the Sennheiser's or something better for my listening to rock,classic rock,metal and I want a little bass with the right amount of highs! Thanks

They aren't as detailed as my eph100s in the mids or treble yet they are much brighter sounding than the eph100. Also they have a meatier bass section than the eph100 with much more texture in that regard as well. I think this is due to the big 13mm dynamic drivers they use. They also use aluminum for all the components in this iem and its weird but the sound reflects that metallic sheen in the highs. It sounds aluminum if that makes since. I quite like it sometimes. Its overall a v shaped sound and can be harsh because of the peak at 5k at times. I will post a picture of the frequency response graph that the engineer at RBH sound sent me. They have fantastic customer service. Probably the best customer service I have ever dealt with. I had balance issues with my first couple of pairs but they fixed me right up and I even got to talk to the engineer that designed them. I'll post a more detailed review later with the graph pics as I have lots of experience with these.

P.S: I come from sennheiser cx880 biggrin.gif

These iems actually are vocal forward to an extent. They have a pretty strong emphasis in the 2k-6k region so you shouldn't need to eq for added vocal presence. Maybe you mean vocal body though and in that case they do dip a little from 200-1k so maybe boost the mid to lower mids in that area?
