    Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread

    100% agree. BTW I already moved a step up to 400 eur entry levels hifi speakers+amp, but rarely listen to them as they do not fit in my pocket! ;-)

    Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread

    Well, I've owned IE80 and IE80s for many years, and owned and listened many other IEMs. The only weak points of the IE80s for me are fit, noise isolation and flexibility. If your fit is good the sound for me is unrivaled: bass detail, attack speed and subtleties of the mids are top notch and...

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    N3ap are excellent all rounders, the bass department is well extended, with subbass emphasis. Bass definition while being good is not the best. Sennheiser ie80s or earsonics es3 are more performant in this regard.

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    Agree . But the path to audiophile wisdom passes through many 30$ iems for too many of us. I agree the demo unit may sound dark, I had this same impression. But once I started using it the overall signature moved towards the balanced side of things, with elevated sub bass, and the mildly...

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    And probably it is. But for those who can only afford 300 $ I would still recommend the sonys n3ap For those with only 30 $, I still find cheap Sonys very musical, only if inaccurate on the extremes of the spectrum. Also I find the improvement from 30 to 300 $ gear like a + 70%, whereas...

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    Seems like you are really happy with it. 10 hours battery life is a huge performance, compared to what's actually on the market.

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    Sony N3ap. If you like wired they are ready out of the box. Otherwise just switch to a wireless cable. I would recommend a bluetooth 5 cable for best quality. They can be found as low as 200 eur.

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    I actually tried the MH755, and owned for some time the MH1C, and I can say: - both have a very fun easy going signature, which can work with any type of music, as long as you don't expect too much detail pulled from the sound - The MH1C had elevated basses, with sub-bass boost and recessed high...

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    I've had the sony N3 for quite a few month, and I find them the best in the sub $300 range: - confortable - good noise insulation - replaceable cable - very good sound - more expensive gear will just carry like 3% more detail across the range, but the overall SQ is largely enough to allow a good...

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    Lately I made Sony N3AP my choice for metal, hard rock, and all other genres btw. They have fast detailed and forward bass, quick and controlled mids, detailed and non aggressive trebles. For this reasons they sound good with all metal varieties, and all other music genres. They are also...

    Dear community, a lot has been going on this topic for headphones here https://www.head-fi.org/threads/headphones-for-metal-music-ultimate-solution.715478/ but on the IEM side the discussion is quite silent. So let's try. I would propose as to post in order IEM model + manufacturer ; genres...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    As long as you choose the right player app and music format, V20's freq response will be flat. Check it here: So what you will ear will be pure uncoloured ie800 sound. I tried them at a shop, and I can tell you the IE800 has very good clarity and instrument separation across the spectrum...
