OM Audio InEarPeace hybrid IEM. The single BA/single dynamic driver IEM done right. - Page 2

post #16 of 25

Which Comply version fits these stems (I gather these have pretty large posts)?

 

If you have time, could you please indulge me with a favour... if you could rate it on a scale of 1-5 comparing it with any of the other IEMs that you are familiar with in http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-308-iems-compared-rbh-ep1-added-01-01-14-p-836 

 

I do understand that there will be a degree of subjectivity involved but I'm trying to get a sense of what "above average" might mean. My previous ones were rated by ljokerl in the above thread as 3 - 3.5 for isolation so I'm hoping to land something better than that. 

 

Thanks again!

T-400 and TSX-400 fit them just fine. They aren't any bigger than my old HiFiMan RE-ZEROS.

I just did an experiment for you, and I turned off all the electronic and noise making appliances in the room, and turned up my DAP/AMP while wearing the OM Audio's, and my fiance said she couldn't hear anything until I turned the DAP/AMP nearly full blast. So with my E11, that was between 7-8. No noise heard from 1-6, so I'll give the isolation a 4.5/5.

Wow! You did that WHILE wearing the phones??? Thank you so much! I hope I'm not responsible for any hearing loss you'll experience henceforth! :D

hahaha you're welcome, and it was uncomfortable for just a second. I don't normally listen to my music turned up really loud, so for this one instance, it was fine. Plus you got me thinking about the isolation and noise leak on these things. They are aluminum housings, so I think that also helps?

I don't know if aluminium housings help, but these don't look like they are vented so that should be a plus as far as isolation goes. So does deep insertion which has an ugly trade-off as it feels really disconcerting for me. Are these shallow or deep? 

 

For me, isolation is more about me not hearing the outside world (specifically, the constant roar of airplane engines) and less about leakage TO the outside world. I find that if isolation isn't good enough, I have to turn the volume up to hear any decent detail and that's bad long-term.

These have what is described as having a pressure system. I don't exactly know the tech, but these are so comfortable, and no, deep insertion is NOT needed.

Hahaha, love it.

I've had these things since Christmas and no complaints yet. I choose these over my v-moda 100's and grado 60s. There is nothing I've played through my iPhone that sounds less than amazing. I just can't seem to get bored of them.
