A Tiger in a Rabbit's fur

Posted

Pros: Detail, Speed and Presentation

Cons: Some of the worst build quality, Design and Comfort.

^^( First I would like to thank Rob Reyna of In Ear Customs who got me the R-50 to make up for my reshelled GH-ERC-DMS getting stolen in POST )   I am writing this review as I will be parting with my R-50 within another day or two, the left cable has come loose and rotates around the housing, making the IEM unusable as it can only be worn around ear.     On to the sound quality, this for me is the TWFK to be. A role model of sorts. The sound quality is excellent, imaging is the best I have heard from an IEM. The treble dont get very peaky like my GH-ERC-DMS(another TWFK). Mind you, the treble will definitely get annoying to listeners sensitive to...

The Queen of Warmth / The King of Value

Posted

Pros: Price, Price, Price, Soundstage, SQ, Bass

Cons: Flat cable, Bass

  I really can't believe I am taking my time off a super busy weekend to type up a review of the FOTM Sony MH1C (while I wait for my RE-272s ).   For firsts, I am not an ace reviewer, and I regret reading my previous reviews. I think I just belong to the race of head-fiers who just enjoy listening music and accept the fact that they are not the best with words.         Either way to make a long review short, I've bought these around a month back and used them more than once a day, so its definitely plausible and probable that they have gone a good amount of burn in and the total signature has reached its ultimate state of polish and...

what a Full sound

Posted

Pros: Soundstage, bass, signature, comfort

Cons: Price(depending on where you find it), too forgiving

great bass. especially the mid bass is superb and delicately punchy... no bleed to my ears    very clear for a bass heavy headphone   they sound warm and overall very easy on the ears...supremely forgiving....great clarity .. beats my xb 500 in almost everyway.  bass is very well layered and faster than sennheiser hd 428 and xb 500. also shows equal layer and extension in bass to xb500, at the same do not sound bloated like the latter   treble is enough not to complain about..  I dint have my usual treble checking tracks but i can still vouch for this....(eq might help here)   mids sound warm but i dont find any particular...

Bomb for the Buck!

Posted

Pros: Clarity..Detail...Speed, 1 year warranty

Cons: none for the price, sibilance

+ve   Superb Clarity Accentuated Treble but not tiring  Superlatively Detailed!  Banging the buck baby!  Satisfying Bass especially the mid-bass(very much more so than the RE-272s) Technically Musical(more musical but equally detailed to the RE-272s) Speed Speed Speed Instrument Seperation Imaging   -ve   Build could be better(nitpicking) SQ not quite there yet(in comparison to the RE-272s and the SE 535) Average Soundstage     Products like these especially at the price i got it at...makes me think that sometimes Human economy can simply be Owned :)!! I really can't believe a pair of japanese Iems that is...

flawless!

Posted

Pros: clarity, micro-detail, presentation, transients, comfort, sq screams audiophile

Cons: bass, build, price

+ve  Class leading sq(among the best of what i've heard).. I would definitely put the SQ as high as the Shure SE-535 & on par with the SRH-940 out of an HUD MX-1 Very coherent presentation - i think this is the most pleasing presentation an analytical listener can get Clinical yet musical - for this you will have to take a listen for yourself Clarity that keeps up with speed - the almost no bass sound makes up for astounding clarity that's second to none Motherly Micro-detail - I think this might be one of the most detailed sets i've heard till date the treble is very very airy which helps in identifying micro-details in the music very easily.. its not the most...

brilliant movie hps

Posted

Pros: comfort, immersive sound, quality , spacing , durability

Cons: cable could be detachable(nitpicking)

let me start with the common confusion of burning in cans!! with a huge amount of forums that generally end in personal arguments, i am completely quizzed if im to believe in it or otherwise.. however, its not much of a loss to try it out as they can only bring out the true sonic characteristics of a headphone, if at all there are any..an example being my xb500s change in sound once burnt in, but it wasn't the same with the shure se 535(then again BAs need no burn in or so is the talk) , at the time of this writing i've given the dt 990 pros a 100 odd hours of white, pink,brown noise profiles and music . they were pathetic straight out of my laptop...so i started to burn flac...

amazing!

Posted

Pros: clarity, space, quality, build, isolation

Cons: treble extension, presentation is very tip dependant

>>(first impressions)   >>as tyl herstens said - "Ahhh! Someone slipped liquid gold into my ears! The genies at Shure did some         real magic here." >>just wonderful ...handsome bass , rich and forward mids , in-offensive treble                   Impressions after 6 months :-   I thought of pimping this review and adding on to the above after a full 6 months of listening .   I hated the Shure Olives at first, so started using the flex tips that came with it for most of this period except recently when i switched back on to the olives and came...
