    Tenso forwarding services

    Can people that have used this to get Japanese only earphones please chime in their experience with it. What happens is a delivery from Amazon Japan was attempted but not complete because they're closed at the time of delivery. Any good or bad Tenso experiences would be appreciated.

    Mid-Bass "Bump" and Clarity

    It seems the general consensus is that an IEM with a mid-bass bump has a tendency to "cloud" or "veil" the midrange a bit (like W4).   The W3 is known as an IEM that has one of the more significant mid-bass bumps out there yet the clarity and crispness is top notch.  So how can this be?

    New IEM, hard choice

    Hi fellow headfi'ers, After having enjoyed my sennheiser ie8's for two years, I think it is time for something new. I had a love/hate relationship with the IE8's, sometimes they sounded like crap considering the fact that the bass is quite muddy, mids are recessed and the highs are not really...

    JVC HA-FX700 OR Vsonic V7007

    Hey guys! I haven't posted in awhile, but my headphone fever has returned (of course). I have been using Vsonic GR07 and BrainWavz HM5 the past couple of years (I found the HM5's to be severely overhyped and had a very flat, boring, and distant presentation). While they have lasted me I feel I...

    In-Ear phones: unbreakable/fully warranted/replaceable - which to choose?

    Hi all, I am looking at buying a new pair of in-ear headphones. I run through these as crazy though, typically due to the chord breaking. In the last year I've gone through two pairs of beats along with a pair of Etymotic HF-5's.. Therefore, for my next pair, I want a pair where this problem...

    IEM overrated?

    So I bought the Shure SE535 expecting that it would destroy my designer B&W P5 (much cheaper than the Shure SE535), however it doesn't. It has got a different character but I wouldn't say it's better. ( the shure sounds cleaner, thinner but more seperation while the B&W sounds full and warm )...

    Your top Japanese IEMs (can you rank the ones you have heard? Or point out ones you like)

    Hi, I don't have much experience with Japanese IEMs except Fitear TG334.  I know there are lots of threads about Japanese iems, but I think it's better for me to ask those that have lots of experience with them to rank them and list them.   So, can you rank Japanese iems you have tried from...

    In layman's terms as much as possible? :) I read the relevant section of the Wikipedia article on headphones and while I understand most of it, I don't really get the practical applications in terms of the actual listening experience or sound quality or whatever. Are they better/worse/it...

    Clarity One EB110 Review

    This is my first review so bear with me if I sound less than accurate for I am just an aspiring audiophile tight in budget.   I totally disagree with reviewers that says these canalphones are average. The sound they provide is superb. They render instruments naturally, have a wide and deep...

    JVC HA-FX700 vs JVC HA-FX850

    Hello Audiophiles, I have been looking for a comparison between the two but looks like no one has done so. I have narrowed down both of them as per my requirements and i don't want to go with the custom route. I would love to hear the impressions of both from their respective owners. Thank you.

    Wood IEMs: What do you suggest?

    I'm looking in to picking up some wood earphones.    So far, I'm looking into The House of Marley (People Get Ready), ThinkSound (ts02), or something by Woodies...   Does anyone have experience with one, or all, of these? What's my best bet for sound? I've heard some people say that wood...

    JVC FX700 vs Cardas em5813

    From what i`ve heard they`re both high end dynamic iem`s with an emphasis on bass, can anyone compare them? I currently own the FX800`s and am a large dynamic fan, if anyone can comment on the Cardas in particular that would be appreciated, thanks for any responses.

    IEM's with huge soundstage and bass?

    What IEMs will offer huge soundstage and bass? I like the deep rumbling sound the ie80s can offer. I listen to a lot of house/edm. I also love softer female vocals such as Norah Jones, Sia... I own and have tried a number of popular IEMs such as: 1. Sennheiser IE8- I owned. Loved it. I liked...

    Best IEMS in my budget?

    Tried the Westone 4, nice but looking for something different.

    Ok so I'm relatively new to the portable world, and I recently purchased the Westone 4R. They're very nice, a good all-rounder. The bass impact is decent, mids are nice, but I am looking for a bit more sparkle and air in the treble. These feel rolled off at the top end. Any suggestions for me...

    IEM/CIEM with a V-Shaped Sound?

    I've done extensive auditioning of Westone 4s, SM3v2, Westone 3, Shure SE535 and other top tier universal BA earphones, but I never seemed to be able to like any of them. I have been a long user of TF10s, and I really enjoy their V-shaped sound signature. I always felt that the other top tier...
