    Just got my Sennheiser IE8

    Hi,   I'm an aspiring audiophile.   A recent convert, you could say.  A few weeks ago, I suddenly realized how bad my earbuds were, and how everything sounds muddy and undefined.   Don't know why it took me so long to realize.  But anyway, I started lurking on this forum and reading about...

    IEM Reccomendation

    Lately I have been a bass head for hip-hop and rap music.(Thats why I have the klipsch s4i) And I was going to go for the Monster Turbine Pro Gold and then it hit me that I like the highs in hip-hop and rap as much as the bass. I need an IEM that will do the following:   Isolate...

    Earsonics SM3 fall apart

    Hey guys, Something really unfortunate happened to me today. One of the phones just fell apart at the spot where the two parts were glued together. I've noticed there's a small crack there a while ago, but I didn't think they'll fall apart. Do you think I should send it back for repair, or...

    Sennheiser IE8 for $230

    I'm new to the audiophile business and I came across an IE8 for $230. Is it worth the $230? I heard the isolation is subpar compared to Shure earphones. What makes this IEM so unique and so great?

    What IEM to try next?

    Until now I had considered myself a basshead, but after trying several sets of IEMs I'm not so sure. It's hard to find that perfect balance. Spent last night out with a friend of a friend who let me listen to his IE8's and I was pretty impressed with the soundstage and general warm balance.  ...

    Need help with choosing my new IEM (sennheiser IE8, Denon AH-C751, Monster Turbine PRO Gold)

    Hi, I have decided to buy a new IEM to complement my Ety ER4p for my portable rig. My  PMP are Cowon J3 and D2. I have a Meier Corda portable amplifier but usually I don't use it very much. So usually iems will  be directly driven by the players. I really like ER4P but would like to have...

    Sony Hybrid Tips vs Comply vs any others?

     Hi I currently have sennheiser IE8 iems and am looking for some upgrades to the cheap tips that came with them. Am leaning towards Sony tips as does not affect Sound and can be worn more easily, but the comply tips offer better isolation. From what ive heard the comply also dampen the treble...

    How does the Fischer Audio DBA-02 stand up to the Earsonics SM3?

    So I've been reading some magnificient reviews on this iem these couple of days. I currently have the Earsonics SM3 which I bought after reading some extensive reviews done here at Head-fi and I pretty much love it. Compared to my previous IEMs, such as re-0, ie8, w3, pfe112, fx700, SM3...

    smaller "replacement" for SuperFi 5EB?

    Hi everyone I have two pairs of UE SuperFi 5EB and I love the mix of sound quality and sound signature (lot's of clear bass, the sound is "wide" and exciting). The biggest problem is that they are simply a little too big to wear outside. I'm currently falling back to a pair of UE MetroFi 2...

    Hello fellow Head-Fi'ers!   I'm looking into replacing my lost UE700. They will mostly be used for metal and rock, but blues, acoustic and folk might sneak in, as my music taste is ever evolving and expanding, but rock and metal is at it's core. Now as I'm looking for new IEMs, I want a...

    Warm, smooth, lush IEM's?

    folks-- i'm interested in hearing opinions on some higher end warm, lush IEM's. i'm admittedly quite confused here and perhaps it's because much of this is personal opinion based but interestingly enough, i don't seem to see the same type of discrepancy in speakers so i'm looking almost...

    Sparkle & Atrio can now be used in the same sentence...

    I'll keep this short. As many of you may know, Futuresonics has recently updated the driver on their Atrio universals to what they call an MG7. My understanding was that they did this to address a valid criticism of past Atrio models that they lacked & clarity/detail/treble of other higher end...

    My upgrade from W2 to W3 impressions

    Ive had my W2's for about 6 months now but have always wanted to hear the 3's because like most peeps on here I'm never satisfied!   Early days yet but I'm very happy with the W3's. For me, an IEM is never going to compete with a over ear hp and so my ideal would be to have an iem that...
