post #31 of 447

Lol, mate. You can definitely write your comparison here as that is something we WANT to see here instead of the (sorry if this sound harsh) empty posts :)

 

I should get mine this week if everything goes right.

Sounds good, keep me posted!

 

.....I don't want to spoil it for everyone. I'm just a little too fast, too soon!

 

:ph34r:.....I'll just play the waiting game to get more results from others.

As soon as others receive the IS-1, we'll then see if some comparisons are made and where these stand in the line of great sounding IEM's.

 

I look forward to your comments on these.  :happy_face1:



Tell me more about the DN-1000 comparison? :smile:

I don't think it would be fair since no one has replied having received the IS-1's, as of yet.

 

But, since you asked and my opinion are solely my own, I don't think any harm is done. So, here we go......

 

First of all, let me say that these punch way above from what I ever expected.

 

While using medium silicone tips:

 

IS-1:

Bass was more natural and fuller and precise.

Sub-bass is incredible on these, the DN's just couldn't compete.

Midrange is a little sweeter. Don't know how else to describe it.

Soundstage is very good and compliments well with their range.

I haven't heard such precise details from any IEM's to date! Very vivid and lively.

 

DN-1000:

Bass was good, but reminded me of the SoundMAGIC E10 in comparison.

Sub-bass was average to my taste. I've heard better.

Midrange was pretty good, but can not top the IS-1, which sounded a little more clear to me.

Soundstage is also very good on these and sounds very full.

Details are very good, but slightly falls behind the IS-1's.

 

While using medium comply tips:

 

IS-1:

Bass was still natural and precise.

Sub-bass can be heard, but not as much, felt.

Midrange is incredibly sweeter.

Soundstage is just as good, and even more livelier.

Details are miraculously clear, but can be sibilant for some, if driven too loud.

 

DN 1000:

Bass was better, but can not match the clear and energetic details of the IS-1's.

Sub-bass was OK, at best.

Midrange was more forward and livelier, but not as sweet as the IS-1's.

Soundstage tends to be very wide, but because of it, mid-bass sounds more present.

Details are very good and clear.

 

 

So, their you have it!

 

Note: For those "threading", please don't hate if I speak my mind. This was just my own experience. You'll get your turn to review these when the time comes.

I ordered the IS-1 and Xiaomi Pistons 2 and will compare them to the Etymotics ER-4P when they arrive. I'm interested to see how they compare to the old king.

Thanks for the info....

 

Please let us know when you finally do.

Interesting impressions. I'll be sure to compare them with my Dunu DN-1000.
post #38 of 447

Does Ivery have an official website?

 

Does anyone have a frequency response graph of the IS-1?

 

Ivery seems to make other IEMs such as the IV and IX series. Are they any good?

I really did my best to check this company out, but it looks like they really like being under the radar (sort of speak). Their email returns "failure" and my phone calls go unanswered. They used to have a website, which I think is not operable anymore, but you can try http://www.iverygood.com/. But, I found their Chinese products page >>> http://ivery1688.1688.com/ <<<

 

Soon, I'll be purchasing the IV-3 and the IS-6. Hope they both sound good. A friend of mine has the IS-3 and claims they're good, but I'll look into those later. Lastly, I don't have a graph, but I'm pretty sure who ever provides one will look pretty good, I think.

So if your DN-1000 comparison is accurate IS-1 should get more than 9.2 sound score from ljokerl , which is not believable for me.

Quite a while ago Inks was comparing LG QB-2 with GR-07 and some $200 iems, he put it well above of everything. At the end many head-fiers quite liked them, for their price range but also thought they are obviously overrated.

He did already say that that was his own opinion. No one's opinion is the end-all, be-all; not even Joker's or 1clearhead's.

Therefore, your argument is invalid.

Just a reminder......it's only accurate to my opinion.

 

It's OK to state your opinion. That's why I mentioned specifically to give your reviews and comments if you own one and had time to burn them in.

Just a reminder to all head-fier's, you need the proper seal to truly appreciate these.

 

I know a lot of you will receive your IS-1's by this week, so If you have a chance make sure you choose the proper tips (small, medium, large) to get the full effects of the whole range these provide.

 

If you don't have a complete seal, you'll describe these as too sharp with little bass.

 

I don't want to be the one to school fellow head-fier's to use proper tips.  :ksc75smile:

 

 

This was just a simple honest reminder.

post #45 of 447

I received mine a couple of days ago.  Still playing around with ear tips.  Having a hard time finding ones that will stay in my ears.  Never had this much trouble with IEMs before.  The ones that came in the package are garbage.  Can't comment much on sound due to the tips. Going to keep trying.  Still have a few to go.
