    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...

    Balanced cable for Sony EX600/800ST/1000

    Does anyone know where I can find a balanced cable for the Sony EX600/800ST/1000 series IEM? I'm interested in going balanced, but so far I haven't encounter a balanced cable for this IEM.

    Sony EX800ST impressions

    I recently acquired a set of Sony EX800ST IEM's from a Head-Fi member who had originally purchased them from a Japan dealer, as these phones are not distributed in the US.    The EX800ST is marketed by Sony as a studio monitor.   That is a term that I have found to be much overused in the...

    Sony MDR-EX800ST?

    So, I have the Ultimate Ears 700, and I do like them. However, they are frail, and I do not think they'll last much longer, and I'd like something better. Also, while I like UE 700's sound, they're a little lacking in bass.   So I heard about the MDR-7550/MDR-EX800ST, and they seem good...

    Sony MDR-EX800ST alternative?

    I recently acquierd the Sony MDR-EX800ST, and while I do love them, they leak a bit more sound than I can have at certain arenas. Therefore I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation of a pair of IEM's with a similar sound?

    What are the biggest flaws of your favorite iems?

    This is one of the most useful questions imo. I'll start.   DBA-02: Sub-bass roll off   FXT90: Too much mid-bass    FXD80: Recessed mids   GR07 mkII: Slight treble roll off     Also does anyone have any iems they consider to have no flaws? I've never heard one.

    Review: Sony MDR-7550

    About myself:   Intro: Sony's current flagship IEM is XBA-4. However, it's bass heavy tuning and lacking transparency made me disappointed in Sony. Last year, I also noticed that Sony had a line of dynamic IEMs, tuned for...
