    Fender IEM (Aurisonics) Impressions, Reviews & Discussions Thread

    It's not huge, but the newer batch sounds noticeably louder than the older batch. I had to dial down the volume. Safe to assume that the ASG1 I tested is an ASG1.2 with the new ASG1.3  drivers but old shells and accessories? It looked exactly like the one currently on ASG web store.

    Fender IEM (Aurisonics) Impressions, Reviews & Discussions Thread

    I've just compared the older batch ASG 1.2 (with the old ASG logo) and the newer batch ASG 1.2 (one with the new logo). I should call the newer batch ASG 1.2 as the 1.25.   The 1.25 strangely sounded noticeably brighter and IMO better because of it. I didn't like the 1.2 much since it was...

    VSONIC GR07 Impressions Thread

    I don't think the Beyer and GR07 sounds alike at all too. The Beyer has better transparency and clarity but has a trade off in its slightly artificial sounding treble. Something sounds off and dry between the mids and treble. The GR07 doesn't have that problem but tends to be more sibilant.

    VSONIC GR07 Impressions Thread

    Quote:   Different stroke for different folks. Sometimes I don't get the re262 hype, considering they have such an awkward treble drop-off. Back to the GR07 for me. Would love to listen to the 7550 one day.

    Rockit Sounds R-50 Reviews and Impressions

    Quote: I'm wondering if you'll say the same thing if you have them side by side, given your preference for bass.. Some days I think that the R50 is great or 'objectively better' is, but when i line it up against good dynamic IEMs, my hands seems to reach for the dynamics.

    Rockit Sounds R-50 Reviews and Impressions

    Not much of a surprise really,..., two IEMs with completely different soundsig.

    FitEar F111 — Impressions, Reviews & Discussion (previously TO GO! 111)

    Quote:   Get a used ER4S and a suitable (not necessarily expensive) setup. Will save you a lot of money, and I personally don't think they are that far-off the F111, though YMMV. ER4S is already a high-end single BA and will give you a seamless midrange as well.

    TDK BA200 Thread

    Quote:   That's a lofty praise to even put the BA200 in the same sentence as the HD600.   I personally didn't find the BA200's mids to be nearly as seductive as the HD600's, heck even among full-size headphones, HD600 mids is quite special (I'm a fan). Though I agree the BA200 is a...

    VSonic GR07 IEM shipping to MOST countries from Asia

    Up for sale is a pair of Vsonic GR07 (mk1) IEM. The plug has been reterminated and the cable has turned a little green on some places. Other than that, they are perfect functionally and sonically. As pictured, only the IEM is included. No tips and no case, but the GR07 can easily be used with...

    JVC HA-FXZ 100/200

    I auditioned the FXZ100/200 recently. Maybe this can be a help for some people on the fence.   The 200 is a basshead IEMs for sure, if not the bassiest popular/FOTM IEM in head-fi. The bass is powerful but not the cleanest or the best controlled and bleeds a bit into the midrange as well...

    Best IEMs for under 250$

    Quote:   I personally found the dba02mk2 to still be quite clinical and somewhat lacking bass impact (not quantity) for some music. The only dual TWFK that is not too clinical IMO is the UE700. But really YMMV.

    Ocharaku: Flat-4-Sui. The Sound of Tea.

    If you love dynamic range and prefer a dynamic driver IEM to the feeble BAs, I think the 4-SUI is worth a try.  It actually fits me better than the GR07 (with GR07's silicone tips).
