IM03 is infectious; I bought one for my brother but once I tried it out, I ended up buying another one for myself. The comfort and isolation couldn't be any better when sony's hybrid tips applied on it. For such big IEM, I'm terrified that it snugs far more comfortably than the westone 4 and UM3x.

Yes, IM03 is truly well designed and excellent sounding IEM :D

Do you remember if IM50 shell/housing was bigger than IM03 or are they about the same?  IM03 are on borderline of my in-ear comfort, so IM50 would be crossing that threshold if it's bigger.  I was actually trying to recommend to someone an alternative to SE215, and thought IM50 with RC and strong bass and clear mids while being cheaper is a great choice, but not sure about the comfort.  Ergonomics of SE series (similar to my W-series) is fantastic.  So, just have to figure out where IM50 stands in comparison to IM03 in size.

Actually the IM50/70 housing is smaller than the IM03 but the nozzle is extremely long so it protrudes from one's ears. As the result, wearing IM50/70 is less comfortable than IM03 plus it does not isolate as much.

IM50 is smaller than IM03. You can see from the picture on page 1.

Im50 vs im70? Which to buy?
Btw in japan the prices just nearly doubled. Wtf?
I just bought my im02 for 13,000 yen and I just checked it's now 20,000 yen at all Japanese stores. The 50s were just over 5000 and the 70s were just over 7000. Now the 70s are over a 10,000 yen. ****!

Any way the im02 are my first proper IEMs I have owned. I love them. Really rounds out the sound of my collection. So bright and analytical.

But now I'm looking for a more fun iem. Something with more bass. something a little cheaper I can use at the gym.

It seems this new line of ATH IEMs are more than worth their weight in gold. I would consider other IEMs, but why bother?
So the 50s are bassier???
But the 70s are more accurate???

Really not sure which to get. The audiophile in me is leaning towards the 70s.

I would like to hear more opinions about the IM03 vs CK100Pro since the IM03 is supposed to be the successor.  Do the IM03s move too far away from analytical or is it more of a slight tweak?  And for people who have heard both which did you like better?

 

These will be replacing my DBA-02s as my work IEMs.  I love the DBA-02s (haven't heard higher end stuff) but they can be fatiguing and I have to turn up the volume to really make them shine.  Since I often wear them all day I don't want to do this for the sake of my hearing.  I occasionally use MC5s at home as my backup pair but they are too thin and lifeless.  The IM03 sounds like exactly what I'm looking for: something less harsh than the DBA-02s but still fairly neutral and a bit more musical.
