Thanks, guys!
@qsk78 this is really good that you mention about source., and I will add this as a footnote to the review. For the ones with DACs and Amps, they would find this useful. Although i believe the general character of the earphones stay the same even with amping. (?), or would you say that it makes a significant difference?
qsk78
qsk78
Yes, they keep their character for sure.

As far as I can tell, the source impedance affects the treble.

Hmmm., it's very technical, and i scratch my head. But i remember one such graph, from here in headfi, which showed that with different impedance ratings the E70's treble showed more presence. I can't remember the numbers though, and i surely can't find that graph now. Maybe finding that right source would make this more detailed, and make it sound less bassy, making this the best IEM ever?.

More power makes them less bassy))
BTW, I'm a fan of Etymotic but sometimes even I need more body and weight in Low end - they give it )

Nice. I've ordered an ER4P-T, they're on their way.Can't wait to hear these mothers!

I disagree.E70 is worst in-ear I tried.Too big and uncomfortable! It´s sound is realy poor.

Interesting...my first review was Poor Man's Review of the Audio-Tech IM02.  Im02, being much better, though.

@pseudomagick - thanks for the comment. I'm sure there will be some who agree with you.
@thatonenoob - IM02 , from what i read, are really close to doppio's sound, and so i didn't get them.
At the back of my head i knew someone had done a " poor man ". Good to know now. I see the slight difference, yours being A Poor Man Review, while mine is a Poor man's review. Would you like me change this?

And, i've changed this to Simple Man's review. Hope no one's used this before :wink:

@thatonenoob - I own the LS200 (im02 successor) and the E70 in parallel. They both can live together. ))
qsk78
qsk78
I pair them with different sources though

@qsk78 - how would you compare the LS200 with Etymotic ? What's the most noticeable difference, apart from details? (i'm guessing the Etys have a little more detail to them ?)
qsk78
qsk78
Well, I think transparency would be the right word (SR). 
But the LS200 is my main pair of IEM today. They just much easier in day-to-day usage.
I use Ety with foam tips and with its specific form factor ...so I have not touched them for a month I think)

iems0nly
@qsk78 Oh, come on.. i guessed that already! 
Please check out Daft Punk's Burnin' with the E70, and you will know why this IEM is special. So much bass detail is quite impossible i think! It sounds quite unbelievable

$400 for bass that bleeds in the mids?
iems0nly
iems0nly
hmm.. yes, if there is a dominant bass line. It is going to interfere with the mids.

As a monitor it does it's job. If there is so much bass in the recording, it just shows you directly without suppressing it. If the track itself is not heavy on bass, it doesn't emphasize this to bleed into the mids.

Bass bleeds if your source is not able to control it.
