    Westone w40 short review, includes pictures.

    Thanks for the input guys. i will look into the w30. I can honestly say im enjoying the w40 at the moment so will hesitate to exchange them at the moment but im going to try to get an audition of the w30 and w50. The w40 is not without its flaws. but they are made all the more enjoyable by the...

    Westone w40 short review, includes pictures.

      Ok, first of all folks, I'm not going to compare these headphones to anything else. It's a standalone review on the merits and shortfalls of the Westone W40 in-ear monitors. I'm hoping to highlight who these monitors are made for, and who will likely take maximum enjoyment from them. All...

    Nuforce Primo 8 - an Audiophile Phase Coherent Quad Balanced Armature Driver IEM - Impressions

    If you like to crank up your tunes every so often tho steer clear of ue900. The distortion is really bad at high volume. It does have to be really high tho but i always felt i could crank it up another notch more than i should have and they just crumbled. Really annoying for the price. Took...

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    yeh i think thats the gist of it to be honest. i mean you have to remember Ultimate Ears started off relatively small and so you can imagine the expertise that was hired to engineer their highest quality in ear monitors, it wasnt any old tom dick and harry thats for sure, logitech is obviously...

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    i had the ue900 and sold them, i didnt experience any problems with mine except the unbearable distortion at high volume, replaced them with westone w40 and much prefer the fit and cable, the ue900 has slightly better highs as the westone can be sharp, kind of on the lines of sony ex1000 sharp...

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Well are they not obliged to refund you the cost of the earphones if they agree the warranty is active and being used rightfully but cant offer the same product? Warranty anywhere else means replacement or refund does it not?

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    I had a conversation with logitech about possibly getting mine replaced even tho at the moment theres nothing wrong with them i asked them if they would change them considering the known manufacturing issues with my model and as i suspected they said they cant replace it unless there is an...

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Hi you are absolutely right the levels do have to be extremely high however even tho i dont plan on listening at such levels i was suprised at the sheer amount of distortion there was, keep in mind i am only using the fiio e5 and iphone 5s, i do think it has a lot to do with the signal being...

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Hi thanks for the reply, it is true the distortion happens while using the amp at high volumes, and its very likely i guess that the balanced armatures used are simply putting forward the distortion as ofcourse armatures are known for highlighting weaknesses in the output from a device, i guess...

    Sony mdr-ex1000 in ear headphones

    Hi i have for sale my sony mdr-ex1000, these are in excellent condition used, they have no original box and there is a few of the original eartips missing, i have the original leather case in great condition aswell as both long and short cable, they have been rarely used simply because its a...

    Review by 'jinx20001' on item 'Sony MDR EX1000'

    have had these aswell as other high end IEM's and these are truely excellent however not my personal fav's.   these IEM's produce a wonderful full airy sound, among the clearest sound i have heard there is no such thing as veil with these the presentation is top quality and they were clearly...

    Looking for a lively IEM with EXCELLENT separation,clarity.. and WIDE soundstage.

    yeh you should try everything you can if you are given that opportunity as only then you can be sure of what you like, i to would recommend trying the fx700, have not heard them myself yet but they are probably the most highly rated IEM around here right now taking value and quality into...

    Looking for a lively IEM with EXCELLENT separation,clarity.. and WIDE soundstage.

    i cant comment on the ex600 however if sony's pricing is anything to go by they dont rate the ex600 as in the same league to be fair. but the signatures are bound to be similar in some respects. the ex1000 are not particularly sibilant to me but the highs can portray sibilance at times with...

    Looking for a lively IEM with EXCELLENT separation,clarity.. and WIDE soundstage.

    you really should set a budget because this will help guide users to giving you a reasonable suggestion, however...   top universals for overall clarity, definition and detail would probably be: shure se535, westone 4, sony mdr-ex1000, sennheiser IE80, etymotic er4-   i cant say ive...

    Mini Sony MDR-EX1000 review with comparisons.ex1

    lol they cant be that bad can they?... actually...   anyway, in regards to the cable i also would like to know where to get ex1000 cables, when i seen that mine had a ex600 cable i was a little gutted but i expected it, bit strange they have ex600 stamped on the cable of ex1000's, however...

    Mini Sony MDR-EX1000 review with comparisons.ex1

    i got mine at a very good price but it was from a third party on amazon that was only selling the one, amazon uk sells them for £297 which is £2 cheaper than they are selling the shure se535 right now which puts them right in the firing line of each other, its a tough choice, i would say if you...

    Mini Sony MDR-EX1000 review with comparisons.ex1

    ok guys so my EX-1000 arrived today and i thought id share my thoughts about these IEM's and compare them directly to the Sennheiser IE8 and shure se535.   first things first.   Design and Fit:   My immediate thoughts upon opening the earphones up was these things look stunning and...

    westone 3 issue with temperature ?

    if you are unsure about operating temperatures you should inspect the instruction manual, i think you may find most headphones have a guidance as to what temperatures you should be operating them at and -7 is perhaps a bit excessive, like using them in the rain, its not a clever idea and that...
