Narmoo! What is that? NEW iem from New company the RIM. - Page 3

Website says Grand Opening free shipping, but comes up with a $5 First Class Shipping charge? Is that an error?

These are a rebranding of the Corecool U2:

The cool thing about the Narmoo.... is that the Corecool would cost you $40+ and take 30 days to ship to you from China. These are $30 (or less!) and would be shipped to you within 2-5 days.

 

Well done Narmoo. Continue bringing over good stuff like this at prices like this, and I will be a repeat customer.

If the Pistons are the Jekyle. The RIMs are the Hyde..The pistons are a smooth warm sound stays safe while throwing down a decent amount of bass..Good mids but takes a back seat to the bass..Got a good amount of refinement for a cheapo and detail is also decent.  The RIMs are a more aggressive sounding earphones and goes basshead with the black screws..Mids are fairly warm on both and the pistons have a lush smooth edge to the sound while the overall sound of the RIMS are fuller more larger in scale.. a bolder more in your face type of sound..

 

Isolation the RIMS win hands down. Both are cheap enough. Why not own both. Adjust that bass and enjoy.

 

By the way I threw in my DX50 in the case with the RIM.. both fit in the case perfectly.

Ok so a little update.. Been burning in the RIM since I got them they are close to around 80 hours of burn in now.. I have to admit the tips on these kinda blows. I threw on my trusty UE tips and what you know.. These sound more cohesive from a tighter seal. Even a better sound than when I wrote the review. Sound seems to be a touch more focused today with better clarity.

 

So for guys getting these try your favorite tips. Will report back with some different ones I have laying around.. So far the UE tips sounded immediately better than the stock tips.

Any time. Oh by the way I just discovered that I was not getting the best sound out of these RIMS. My UE tips I am using take these to another level of sound. I thought I was tripping but I got used to using the UE tips and then switched to the stock tips and what you know.. Thinner treble and overall sound was a bit thinner as well as the bass end and not as defined as I am hearing them now using the UE tips.  

I am gonna have to revise my review.

 

The UE tips adds some depth, The sound has more texture clarity and cohesion. I can't stop listening to these tonight..Guys taking the plunge for these are in for a real nice surprise is all I am gonna say..

These have both midbass and sub bass with their respective tuning screws..Them black screws really throws these into the big boy bass territory. The bass is as easily as strong as the Velodyne Vpulse / CKS iems.

 

So if I already have the Bassos, I should skip the Narmoos?

I think these sound different enough on the sound signature of the bassos to warrant a look. Especially now that I discovered the stock tips are pretty much throw away tips. They are usable but only as a last resort. I am going to revise my impression of the RIMs since finding out better tips make these sound so much better.. Narmoo folk are already aware of the tips not being the best for the earphones and I think this will be addressed possibly in future versions. Ultimately not a big deal as I am sure most of us own several types if tips to use on these.

 

I would say now that the sound quality of these are right up there with the bassos after using the UE tips..Bassos I would not ever use when working out. It is just on the bubble of too nice and delicate to use like that. The RIMS however can definitely used for physical activity especially if you guys use your phones for music at the gym for the occasional phone calls.

So their SQ isn't better than Bassos, just a different signature?

Stage and scope of sound is similar to the Bassos. The bassos sound more distant vs the RIMs. RIMs are easier to drive and are more sensitive, overall tonality is not as warm as the Bassos. The Bassos bass end is stronger over the RIMs silver tuning but not the Black ones so they fall somewhere around the Grey tuning. I want to say definition is similar but it is easier to hear treble notes on the RIMs. The bassos has a very safe tuning in that it does not have the treble peaks of standard in ears. The RIMS do have some bumps in the lower treble region but not to the point of making them sound cheap. The bassos do have the deeper more involved sound but using the UE tips on the RIMS adds some much needed depth to the sounds so they now sound more complete than when I reviewed them.

 

These sound fantastic I know I mentioned the Bassos would be an evolution of the RIMs sounds but I am not so sure after hearing both side by side. The Bassos do have a laid back signature that is a positive but then can be somewhat of a negative as well. These two don't sound the same at all actually and that is a good thing.

 

@Peter I tried UE TF10 tips on these and it does not sound the same as the standard UE tips. More treble presence and less bass. It does give a touch of airy presence to the vocals however. It almost sounds like what velour pads do for full sized cans. Standard UE tips have a little bit smaller sound opening to the TF10  tips and are more rounded in shape. I didn't realize how sensitive the RIMS are to tip change but these change a lot depending on what tip you use on them. I would burn them in first and then try whatever tips you guys have on hand. Also you guys have to take into account that I have a different ear shape than yours so what works for me may not work best for you. I would definitely try TF10 tips on these to see how you like the sound.
