Audio Technica ATH-IM70: A Bold New Direction - Page 17

post #241 of 423
The IM70 would be good. The Piston 2.0 Gold are the best value IEM of the year. Amazing SQ for $20. I just ordered the Yamaha EPH100. You'd love those if you can get a good fit and don't mind laid back treble , and have you looked into the VSonic GR07BE? Same price as the IM70, with simply high end balanced and lush sound?

Xiaomi Piston Gold version 2.0

The original silver version isn't near as good , and the Gold 2.0 has a beryllium driver. The silver does not.

How does this compare to the cks77?

The Pistons are better. More articulate bass and better highs. Really gorgeous decay and sustain times, and awesome timbre. Those beryllium drivers really present a mature sound.

I think he was referring to the IM70...

Which are also better. More accurate in the mid-range, better quality bass, almost an even spectrum with a slight mid-forward response.

+1. Mids on the 70's are very nice. Great for vocals.

How do you avoid customs charges? I want to buy these but am wary of ordering as I have ordered once from Japan via Tenso and I got charged £23 in customs charges! I would probably try cdjapan this time. Anyone know what they're like regarding this?

As far as I know, customs charges have nothing to do with the seller, just your country and the customs office. So it should be the same, unfortunately. The only difference is that it's a little cheaper from cdjapan so you might pay a little less in customs.

I live in France now so I have things sent to LA and my dad takes it out of the box and sends it to me, marks it as a gift and $0 value, that way I avoid customs charges because they're strict about it in France too. Maybe if you know anyone in the US they'd be willing to do that for you?

Where are the GR07 the same price as IM70? On Amazon they're $179 and the IM70 are $97 on CDJapan.

 

You don't have the IM70 right? If you did I would be interested in a comparison between them and the EPH100 and Pistons. Pistons are really tempting for the price... I'll probably get those eventually anyway.

The GR07 are cheap now, because I believe they are being discontinued???

I'm thinking of jumping on this deal. These are the improved Mk II as well..

Yeah...I'm hopping on this. What an awesome deal on one of the best dynamics of all time .

These are new GR07 Classics, and they are inferior to old GR07 versions, so not worth to buy.(look at GR07 Classic thread) 

With cheapest shipping methods IM50 is $56 and 70 is $101 from Cdjapan.

I myself have IM50 - sound is realy good - bit better than any other $200 IEm i have heard - TF10, CKS1000, XBA-4, CKN70, MMDT and so on. Only idont like that memory wire, but you can get it all for $56.
