High-end dynamic driver IEMs - Page 2

I am not too bothered about isolation, so I'll add the Sonys to my list as well.

 

Reading the reviews of the JVC HX850s on Amazon - they do sound promising!

JVC makes a damned fine IEM...

+1 for the JVC line up, the FX650-850 series are a mighty fine set of IEMs, especially if you have a thing for bass. The treble is reasonably well extended and mids are quite lush, a lopsided U shaped sound signature to me, with an emphasis on the lower spectrum.

Another good option is the DITA Answer, an IEM I personally own and enjoy quite a bit, smooth buttery highs (after substantial burn in though) and an extremely neutral sound signature.

Ocharaku Flat 4 is another option mentioned already, and after demoing it for a while I thought they were fair performers, nothing super impressive to me, but definitely a solid set if IEMs with good bass extension and treble.

Perhaps look into the new ATH CKR9/10 IEMs, they're decent IEMs as well, and emphasize on clarity and smooth highs. Though some substantial burn in is also required and the sound may be a little thin to some ears.

Good luck on your search, and coming from a person who has abandoned BA IEMs in favor of dynamics, you might find yourself not turning back to BA biggrin.gif

I own a pair of JVC FX700s and they are absolutely friggin wonderful.  They are the most expensive IEMs I've heard so I don't really know how they compare with their peers, but they sound great to me.  I want to address the recessed mids comment.  Its hard to describe but I think recessed mids is not a good way of putting it.  Its more like enhanced deep base and high freqs.  Nothing is lacking.  The mids on these are lush and warm and fully present.  They are just an absolute blast to listen to.  I often find myself thinking "I should go listen to my JVCs" rather than go listen to music.  I have 4 pairs of headphones, etymotic hf2, beyerdynamic dt880, atrio M8 and the JVCs.  I also owned sennheiser HD600 and Grado 60 and 80 in the past.  The JVCs are the ones I enjoy the most.  There is something really charming about their sound.  The beyerdynamic are probably the most accurate of the bunch but the JVCs are just more fun.  I wouldn't be put off by the v shape sound structure.  Its different but like I said, you are not left wanting for anything.
