    custom IEM and motorcycle riding

    Actually I don't think there would be a problem with the comfort if you want to wear a helmet over your custom IEM's cuz they got a pretty flat surface outside, but those are very dangerous imo.

    Fake IE8

    Well there did have kinda factory version of IE8s coming with simple package rather than fake stuff, some buyers compared them with original one and indicated that there ain’t difference at all. But I’ll still go for the original version of IE8s anyway...

    Koss KDE/250

    Interesting, some posts I just read about Koss KDE/250 said the prototype sound pretty good when compare to IE8, but what concern me is that if they got a good isolation anyway.

    should i get Westone3 or UM3X P.s. i'm er4s Lover..

    should i get Westone3 or UM3X P.s. i'm er4s Lover..

    If your choice is narrow down between these two IEMs then my suggestion is go for Westone 3 which are more balanced than UM3X to my ears.

    Post the last thing you bought. Oh fun!

    Switch to a new Seamaster, an old model but 1120 are more stable and mature than those 2500 imo

    Best IEM for Rock? (Shure SE530 vs Westone 3 vs Westone UM3X vs IE8)

    The IE8’s bass are a little bit overwhelmed at first but they get better controlled after a period of time, and I aint own the UM3x but heard them days before, my first impression is that they got a hyper-forward vocal presentation. Voted for Westone 3 personally.

    Shure SE530? Is it still a top ranking IEM?

    Westone 3 cable ... too delicate?

    Those UE custom made IEMs and Westone IEMs got pretty much the same cables and I literally pay more attention to those tiny cord just avoid they get cracked while I'm on traveling.

    Shure SE530 Appreciation Thread

    With the treble booster you certainly got an enhancement on highs but losing quite a bit of mids in the sametime. I think you could give them a period with EQ off and you'll get used to them imo or if they still get in the way of listening then maybe SE530's ain't your cup of tea.

    Does anyone else have trouble enjoying IEMs?

    I kinda feel more fun when I use the headphone cuz they literally provide more air and dynamic feeling to me and when comes to the IEM's there are more analytic details sometimes or, supposed to be you know, which makes me got a totally different way of listenning experience. But anyway it...

    Shure SE530 - Everything I need to Know

    The SE530's itself don't need an specific burn-in period imo. For the SQ wise, they are easy to drive so use them straingt out of the iPod is ok.
