If it's better than my LG Quadbeat 2, I'm fine. Besides, I like red. Lel, it matches my red M50's as well..

Haven't listened to this yet, will do in a minute. But I did want to tell people here that in my opinion the IM70s are not the best for classical. The bass is a bit too much and a bit unnatural, and I feel that while I can hear violins clearly, they don't "open up." It can be frustrating at times, especially since I'm a violinist and listen mostly to classical. On a more subtle level that's a little hard to describe, I hear the dynamic levels change clearly in regards to volume (obviously), but the color doesn't change with it. It's like the mood and color is the same but the volume changes, whereas when I had the FXT90 I felt more of the color changes with the dynamics. For classical music, that is one of the most important things. For any other genre that's not predominantly acoustic, they are really fantastic. But whenever I listen to anything classical it's just not quite the right sound for me. Mine have under 30 hours of burn in at this point so maybe that'll change a little, and I still want to experiment with more tips. Also, they still sound good, I'm just being really picky.

 

Edit: Just listened to the Pachelbel. The violins sound clear and really good for sure. Bass is just monstrous though, haha. It's too much in my opinion. It also definitely overpowers the others at times. I don't have any other phones to compare to, though.

I listened to the Pachelbel with my IM50, so maybe that's why i didn't felt the bass was overpowering.

 

But then again, I rarely listen to live classical music; so I'm pretty weak when judging timbre reproduction accuracy:tongue_smile: .

Hear the bass thump in the background music:

 

It does not really sound impactful on my IM50.

Agreed. The low end lacks slam.

Anyone know what connector is being used on the IM series? Or is it proprietary to Audio-Technica?

MH1c has more bass especially subbass while the bass on IM50 is a lot faster and has better quality. I would pick IM50 if I wasn't into subwoofer kind of bass.

I read in that write up that the 50s have huge bass. But you guys said it lacks slam. I'm confused.
