    Sound isolation for trips, either noise or tuning others out...

    I'm looking for some IEMs for keeping out the noise on long trips, either via plane or car.  I'd prefer to keep it at 125 or under.  Musically I listen to alt/rock, and this will also be used to watching videos.  So far, Etymotic HF5 looks nice and quite capable, but of course any suggestions...

    What factors determine good isolation in an IEM?

    hey all,   I have been pondering the question what gives an IEM good isolation. the most obvious factor is the tip and seal. however, is there more? can the materials used, the driver, the way the IEM is built influence the isilation? as well?   I have shure se215's and the rockit R50...

    Best neutral iem under 150 dollars for 2015?

    What are the best neutral iems under 150 dolallars for 2015?  I was thinking about a mk5 and a mc5 instead of an hf5 because they will be two in case one if the cable breaks. If your recommendation is above or close to 100 dollars please recommend me a detachable cable model. Thank you.

    Apple ME186LL/A Dual Driver Improved Revision?

    First off, a MUST read.   While the ADDIEM fell under the radar for a while [being vastly underrated?], Apple discretely revised the build of the ADDIEMs , but may have also tuned the sound a bit differently. The ADDIEMs labeled MA850G/A are now ME186LL/A. Certainly the performance of the...

    Looking for a new IEM in the $75 to $300+ price range

    I am a hiphop head but listen to all kinds of music (metal, rock, dubstep, etc.). I dont want a bleeding base but I want it to be fun... I also love nice highs so I can hear the singing in songs nicely. Additionally, isolation is fairly important to me. I don't really know what to look at, so...

    New earphones.

    Hey everyone, I've been using my AKG K450's for a while now and I wanted to get myself of IEM's. My budget is 100$ but I could go up a notch if the product worths it. I've been thinking about the Rock-it R-50 because they have been praised so much. Another pair that I've been keeping my...

    Iphone only, no amp, am I not giving my IEMS justice?

    I have had the RE0, R50, ETY, and now have the XBA-1 and 3, I am now wanting the MDREX1000 which would be the highest class iem I buy, am I not doing them justice using my iPhone 5, should I get an amp?

    Rockit R-50 Alternatives

    It's been a while since I bought a set of iem that I really like. The last set I got was the Rockit R-50 and I really like it. It seem like it has been discontinued. So, I'm on a quest to find a new set of iem. While I like my R-50 very much, I feel that the only thing I didn't like it about it...

    Good bass with forward, airy mids (max $300)

    I'm looking for a new universal iem for $300 max, but I'm not sure what to get.  I've tried the Rockit R-50 and liked the instrument separation and details, but it there wasn't enough bass and it sounded lifeless.  I also didn't really like the Vsonic GR07.  I'm looking at the RE-400, but it...

    $300.00 to spend on EITHER IEMs or Closed Can over the ear. What do you suggest?

    Hello everyone, I'm really bummed today as it seems my Sennheiser Momentums were stolen.  I LOVED them in just about every possible way.  I liked that they were only 18ohm impedance which meant they were easy to drive and could easily be enjoyed via my iPhone, mac, etc.  I loved the sound...

    Maybe I don't like IEMS? please read and tell me if it makes no sense to try any more of them...

    Ok so a few years ago I was into iems. I started with the shure e4c which I loved, and were my first experience with good transducers...until the cable broke. After that I picked up a less expensive but well regarded (at the time) pair...the klipsch s4... and enjoyed them. Than I went on a bit...
