Audio Technica ATH-IM70: A Bold New Direction - Page 11

post #151 of 503

Every IEM has different sound and timbre. You can only imagine but can not know what it is really like in true life.

I've heard you can get them through the Ugomark Website.

Just gotta decide between the IM70 and the MA750. I like the sound signature of my CKN70's but I'm looking for an overall more detailed and refined upgrade on those, especially in the bass (quantity and quality) but not sure which one to go for. The CKS1000 has been in my thoughts for a while but the IM70 and MA750 are cheaper and I'm assuming both are nearly or just as good so...

Anyone who has heard both, can you help me out please?

As have I, but I'm speaking in general, and based on the impressions of others here. Put those together, and you get the idea if an IEM is a good match for someone.

Here you go. I bought mine here, as well as another headfi'er on the discovery thread.

Since this thread is mostly about the IM70, perhaps those with a IM50 would like to post their opinions here:

It gives you a comment box. Just say that you want the Pro and not the Enhanced version. They'll send you whichever one you request, and you're welcome.

Maybe when they offer a color other than red?

i agree, black would be nice

post #161 of 503

I felt that way myself but have gotten used to the red color.  Kinda like it now and the sound is very satisfying.  Combined with my 5s or my DX50, they sound great.

post #162 of 503

so how does this compare to Astrotec AX-7?

post #163 of 503

These look tempting. :tongue_smile:

post #164 of 503

i just received the IM70 in the mail today and i am listening to them now... and they are not what i expected. my first impressions and thoughts were that these remind me a bit of the cmk500. I guess that's attributed to the ATH sound signature. The overall sound is a bit boomy and veiled, which is not a bad thing. The bad part i ran into is that anytime i use an EQ on my phone (HTC One with poweramp) there is a slight hum and the headphones don't like being pushed. Listening to the intro to Dave mathews - #41 there is heavy distortion and you hear a hum and a high pitch ring in the silent parts of the song. The eq setting is basically a slight bass boost which is the same eq settings i use on the GR07 BE. While Dave mathews gets ripped apart other songs like block party sounds great, but the hum and ring is still there.

 

Keep in mind i did reset the EQ to flat and i slowly pushed the bass and the treble up to see if it was a bad setting and i still got distorton. Has anyone else experienced this?

 

Setting the EQ to FLAT! This is where these bad boys excel. There is no distortion sound is great and balanced with a nice boom. The mids and vocals are slightly veiled but feel roomy. Reminds me of the sound i get with i muffle the ATH 700MKII Pro. I plan to try and break these in a bit and then see if the sound changes. If not I might return them.

 

Not being a fan of trebel, the IM70 needs a slight boost of trebel to get past the veil sound.

 

The memory foam is slightly annoying but i will get used to them overtime. I am spoiled by the cable for the GR07 BE which i feel should be the standard. The fit is OK. I get a good seal but they aren't as comfy as the GR07.

 

With that said... I do like them. I just need to get used to a new sound signature and see if i get ear fatigue.

You're going to get that slight veiled perception, as I've said before, these are described as having that thick warm sound of the M200, and with that comes that slightly veiled sound, but still capable of wonderful detail, and musicality.
