Yeah after a while that you mention that, I agree. I would put it down to the strong lows reproduction of the IM70. It sounds closed due to the lack of highs or air but feels like the lows feel very large(like large drums in a hall).

 

I should also mention that higher mids->lower treble are not its strong suit as well so female vocals may sound very slightly strained/nasal of sorts.

i just received mine, and boy, they are huge! 

 

 

soundwise, great! Really happy....have to get used to the fit though, but coming from customs i guess it's normal! 

 

now it's time for some extend listening!

 Double flanges don't really work well with IM70s. At least for me.

Just ordered pair. What kind of tips work best with the IM70?

post #413 of 510

TF10's single flange silicone tips work really well for me.

Hi guys. Where to buy tips for IM 70 ? I find the insulation on these non existent. If you point me to a website with headphone tips, I will be grateful. Thanks.

thats what i thought too.....the comply foam tips work quite well, but could be better. Maybe another comply foam model....

but i sincerely think, that the isolation suffers from their form and bulky body. The fit isn't the helping at all. The body is too big, and the noozle is too long to match with a perfect fit. Maybe it's my eras too, not sure. Form and fit are so much subjectif! 

 

Yet, this is a great iem....

Same here. The sound quality is great but not the isolation. Sony hybrid does help in this area though still not ideal nor perfect.

OK, got these recently, didn't like them out of the box. Been burning them for about a week, much better, really nice bass (an AT specialty, I believe). I generally am a difficult fit, put on Comply tips, fit and isolation better, lost the highs (which are not the strong point of these to begin with). Changed to UE 900 tips (can find them on UE site) highs back (not killer, but no longer MIA), decent isolation, had worse fitting iems (some from AT). Agree with most of the impressions, just listened falling asleep, though, so didn't do real -"critical " listening. OK of to the meet!

Hi guys, I'm planning to pick a pair up on my trip to Japan next month but I'm worried about the fit. I've done some research but most reviewers tend to gloss over the fit and my ears are pretty picky. Would these be too large for an average Asian female? For comparison, I find the UE 900 large and rather awkward. I really love what the reviews are saying and I just hope they're comfortable too.

well, in comparison to the heir 4ai they are huge. Still, great sounding phones for the buck! Try it!
