What is the best IEM that doesn't have the over the ear form factor?

post #2 of 17

"Best" is relative. What type of sound are you after?

Nothing sibilant. More of a warm signature if possible but without a loss in detail retrieval. Slight bass emphasis isn't unwelcome.

The Zero Audio Carbo Tenore could be w good pick. Durability is an issue though.

Why not just go custom then

Not much resale value, not really a compromise in SQ, a hassle to the impressions and so on...

+1 Well worth the trouble. My next step in IEMs.

Not really, already own several customs. Also have looked over detailed objective data on CIEM vs IEM sound quality. Lets just say, the personalised touch is nice and would be welcome if I didn't have to fork out a premium for it.

Also are there any CIEMs that do not have over the ear form factor? I don't know of any.

The VSonic GR01 could be worth looking into.

Ill throw the Klispch X11 out there. Can't beat the comfort excellent SQ. Definitely  a little different in design. Not over ear and reasonably price for a $350.00 retail IEM. Fond on sale now under  $150.00. Even the Klispch X7 wroth a look.

 Good review of X7 down the page. The X11 is pretty close to X7 but a level or 2 above in SQ.

What's the X11 SQ like?
