Oh yeah... Welcome to the lounge. :smile:


But there's like 15 $100-200 iems to choose from

I don't typically like IEMs since I can never get a good fit myself, but I have tried a few that impressed me with their bass that didn't completely overpower everything else. 2 of those were the Wooduo 2 and the Hippo Boom. I owned the Brainwavz R3 as well, but they didn't impress me too much aside from their clear, bright sound. Bass was sorely lacking. I'm assuming you want bass (otherwise why else would you be here? :p) so either of the first 2 I mentioned would be nice. I'd probably use the Wooduo 2 for listening to predominately rap/hip hop tracks though.

Some fit me better than others. I personally prefer a thin nozzle (Shure, Westone) but it's not entirely necessary. 

 

I found the Wooduo2 very comfortable.

It seems I just have abnormally shaped ear canals. Never in the history of EVERDOM have any IEMs, no matter what brand they were, ever fit me without problems. I need to try customs, but they're too expensive and too small. I'd be scared I would lose them.

Stay away from the C300's in that case. The sound is very good, and the bass is strong, but the fit gives me nightmares. The only IEMs that have been completely hassle-free when it comes to fit are the Klipsch X10's. Those are pretty damned awesome. I do however get a fairly good fit with IE80's and so on, and they're quite big with big nossles. Denon C400's gives me a rather hasslefree fit as well. Other than that there's always some adjusting and pressing every 30 minutes or so with most IEMs.

post #546 of 1827

Yeah, I tend to stay away from them because I don't feel like adjusting them every few minutes. When I put my headphones on, I wanna just get lost in my music. Can't do that when with IEMs.

So, I just ordered the UE 4000 and the Sol Republic Tracks HD (Tokidoki edition), for supra-aurals on the go. I love my UE 6000's, even for on the go, but they are a bit too big IMO, and well, yeah - I wanted the little brothers and snagged the Sol Republics as well.

 

It's a bit weird, whenever I order from Amazon.co.uk I can't really order whatever I want. A lot of items lately have not been able to deliver to Sweden for whatever reason. It's within the EU, shouldn't the EU make these things possible? I couldn't buy the Noontec Zoro HD's for instance. Weird, but oh well - I ended up with the Sol Republics instead. they look good in a flashy kind of way - good for the times I want to stick out a bit. Otherwise I'll have the UE 4000 which are all black, and shouldn't scream as much for attention.

 

Should be good to share with you some sub $100 cans and their capabilities here.

 

My Meelectronics are in Sweden though (no problems here!!! some companies work just fine, LOL), and I just have to call FedEx to try to get them to deliver to my work instead of home. Here's something I don't understand: the norm is that during their delivery hours (8-17), people are at work. Why do they insist on delivering those hours to normal people? I understand to companies, obviously, that's the time to deliver to them but for normal people, isn't it cheaper to just hire a few more delivery men for night time deliveries? I mean, they probably pay a hefty amount of money for all the deliveries to empty homes when people aren't there to collect their packages. Oh well, makes no sense, but OTOH I'm fairly sure that they have some fancy statistical calculations supporting their current on-going system.

Nice - pretty striking design too smily_headphones1.gif
post #549 of 1827

Yeah, I took the greyish ones, not the pink ones. From what I've read, they seem to be basshead material, and I'll keep you posted. Don't expect it anytime soon though, it's from the Amazon UK to Sweden, and usually it takes a week or two so yeah...

 

But I'll tell you guys whether they are worthy basshead portables or not.

The design is very distinctive, not something you see that often, I really like this - SOL also do a cool Deadmau5 can I like.

I've got a feeling these cans may well be basshead material - I've the Calvin Harris Master Tracks which are what I regard as a bass can, and from what I can gather, SOL cans seemed to be in general, a bass tuned headcan brand - hey I haven't checked to see if the C.Harris SOL's are listed here eek.gif

The way each ear cup detaches from the headband is pretty unique, though SOL refer to them as "sound engines" or something similarly odd in the set up instructions, but the headband in virtually indestructible and as a whole they are a very robust headcan made to last for sure.

Looking forward to your view on your new cans, when you can (< you see what I did there? smily_headphones1.gif - I know it's not that lulz, but pls humour me - I'm sensitive biggrin.gif )

Well, SOL seems to be the son of someone important with the Beats thing, so I'm not entirely surprised that they have a distinct bass emphasis. Those Master Tracks are good looking. How do they sound?

I like their special editions, except for the Phelps one. That deamau5 is good looking as well.

As for their "sound engines", yeah that confused me a bit. After some reading, there seems to be 8, 10 and 12, in order of sonic qualities. Mine are 10's so middle of the road I reckon.

Lol I got your pun. wink.gif

Oh, i also ordered the Onkyo FC300. It seems to be quite good. Tomorrow I'll be getting three IEMs from Meelectronics. I hope they're good and bassy, but I'm not holding my breath here. Worst case scenario, they'll make good gifts, or working out IEMs. I don't like sweating down my X10's.

+1. The sound of the C300's is excellent, but the fit is horrible. Stay away if you have a weird shaped ear canal :D

 

 

 

Speaking of SOL Republic, i used to own the Tracks HD (V10). Liked the bass, durability, and the fact that i can swap out the headband (i bought 2 different headband colors), but thats about it. Mids were recessed, highs were meh, and overall it sounded very congested. It is a great headphone for running though.

Take care of yourself man.

The Onkyo FC300 is not very bassy but very enjoyable nevertheless. The earphones are HUGE though with the 16mm driver.
