    Review by 'yuriv' on item 'Samsung AKG OEM In Ear Headphones'

    This isn't really a formal review. It's just a fitting place to post my experience with the product so that I can link to it in forum discussions without having to retype the same comments over again. I suppose it kinda sorta works as a review. It used to be $99? The EO-IG955 is the earphone...

    @abm0 Eh, I replied to the main product page, not the review comments. In any case, you should see the other message. In short, the answer to your question is in the app itself. Look at the screenshot I tacked on at the bottom of my review.

    @abm0 I should check the forums more often. You probably already found the answer to your question in the main ES100 thread. But just in case you hadn't yet, the DSP is inside the ES100 itself, as well as the settings for the EQ. It's not the phone app that's doing the DSP. The settings for the...

    Comment by 'yuriv' in item 'Sony MH755'

    I'm glad my report turned out to be useful. The Audio Engineering Society (AES) published several papers by the Harman group led by Sean Olive. They have extensive research on what the majority of listeners prefer. I knew the MH755 would be a safe recommendation after seeing how well its...

    Review by 'yuriv' on item 'Moondrop Crescent'

    Ok, it's sort of like a review. But not really. Technically it is? Moondrop Crescent frequency response I think it sounds good. I hear the canal resonance a little over 7 kHz, because I can’t insert it much deeper with the stock tips. I tried to match this with my measurement. The peak...

    Review by 'yuriv' on item 'Jaybird X3'

    I didn’t see a review of this old item or a suitable thread in the equipment forums, so I’m posting this here, mostly so I can have links to information for at least two conversations I’m having, without having to retype the same post. The content might be of interest to existing Jaybird X3...

    @oluv Lol. Soon after I typed my reply, up comes your review of the Nuraphones. Too bad they're horrible. I sent you an e-mail message because the character limit here is frustrating. Another option is PM to here.

    I’ve asked rtings.com to do this because they were recommending the IEMs last year. They said that they were thinking about doing it in the future. They have yet to do this. The Jabra Elite 65t is another one with custom EQ. It has a better default frequency response than the Jaybirds, but a...

    The problem is that the horizontal and vertical axes on the EQ control app are poorly labeled. The average person will have much difficulty dialing in optimal settings. If you’re really getting an IEC 60318-4 clone coupler, you can play white noise while tweaking the EQ in real time until it’s...

    Some of them have built-in system-wide EQ. For example, the old Jaybird Freedom and X3 both have v-shaped default FR to make them more suitable for a noisy gym environment. They don’t sound all that good in quiet surroundings. But they have a fully parametric equalizer. The included foam tips...

    BTW, It’s unfortunate to hear that the QB3 is now also harder to get because of fakes. Its frequency response is close, but it doesn’t hide the ear canal resonance as well as the Sony MH series. Clarityfidelity has comparisons between the AKG-tuned and standard models. Another approach might be...

    @oluv Aha! You’ve been here since 2004, but now you’re busy with YouTube. I checked out your neato channel, and it looks like some of these IEMs are getting you upset. Lol. I’ve had my share of buying the latest FotM only to be disappointed. I’m done with that for a while. Instead, I’ve been...

    @bait oven: After searching for recent posts on the MH755, it seems a pattern has emerged regarding fakes: MH750: lots of fakes Black MH755: lots of fakes Orange/Turquoise+White MH755: 0 fakes so far Success rate for the white versions is high. I would have known about this sooner if I lurked...

    ... The one reliable seller is Amazon itself, with “ships from and sold by Amazon”. Disappointingly, they have it at 47 USD and there are still many negative reviews! It’s the same story as the Sony MH750/MH755, except it looks like your chance of getting a real one is worse unless you want to...

    That Samsung EO-IG955BSEGUS looks good. The two measurements that I found online suggest that AKG is finally using the Harman research results: https://www.0db.co.kr/xe/REVIEW_0DB/35906 https://m.blog.naver.com/gre_nada/220971913782 As you mentioned, there are lots of fakes. Amazon has at...

    Thanks! As far as I can tell from searching online, the diaphragm material is unspecified. If Sead Smailagic is still active in the forums, I suppose you can ask him. For a product this cheap, though, I think they'd use an inexpensive material like mylar (PET), like other IEMs under $10. From...

    I'm glad you found my report somewhat useful. You could experiment by temporarily sealing the rear volume to see if it gets the bass to the preferred level. I updated my review with a photo in the "Tuning the response" spoiler section to make it clearer.

    Review by 'yuriv' on item 'Apple USB-C to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter'

    The 2018 iPad Pro lost the headphone jack but gained a USB-C port. Apple thinks that these new iPads ought to be used with Bluetooth headphones, so they sent Airpods to the bigger tech sites and YouTube channels along with the review units. Like it or not, wireless headphones are the future. But...

    Thanks! It's clearly a positive review, but I'm leaving room for updates. Also it's only one data point. I'm somewhat surprised that no one else has left an extended review here, given the uniqueness of the product and the time that it has been out. Radsone hasn't released a firmware update...

    Thanks, and yes, it has multipoint. It can pair with up to eight devices and connect two two simultaneously. I think it's in my review. Switching between an iPhone and an another device works seamlessly. I've tried it with an iPad, a Surface, and a Mac. Call quality is good. It announces the...
