Hey Chris, NO FAIR!!! How am I going to sleep now, with those images in my head?...
Get a dynamic driver that doesn't isolate as well so you won't have that issue lol. I already recommended one to you BTW
Lee, I'm a dynamic person and a very good driver but that's as far as my understanding of DYNAMIC DRIVER goes...
I think this thread is deteriorating... On my way to Googling...
Chris, I just noticed this suggestion, thanks. Looked them up on Amazon. Looks really good but quite expensive - something like $230.
Suddenly , I'm feeling like a crazy person talking to myself -- third post in a row!
Here's a slightly different question. Is there a B&M -- of a chain variety, I assume -- where I could sample and try those various IEMs? See, I'm learning the lingo.
I live in the greater LA area, so we have chains and specialty stores galore. Any suggestions?
Try DCX Store -- Culver City.
Thanks! Are you sure they're still in business? I just called on my cell, my landline, and through GV -- "Your call did not go through..." etc. Plus - the last Yelp review is from a year ago. Looks like a great place, based on the reviews...
I wouldn't even mind going to LBC or OC, if I were able to touch, feel, look and compare. (I live in the South Bay area.)
Ok, I didn't have the desire to read the small 3 pages of this thread, so Here's my 2 bits. I am a side sleeper big time and, fall asleep every evening (or morning) with my IEMS. I have found that the Westones are the most comfortable Iems I have tried. Depending on the type of music you like and details you require there are a wide variety that will suit you. Now, I have recently purchased the GR07's, and these are extremely comfortable also, and I have been sold on Dynamic Drivers as a result. Best Wishes and Happy Dreams
You missed them by a month...
lol when I mean dynamic driver I am talking about what the IE7 IEM is. Its a dynamic driver while the Shure SE535 would be a BA (balanced armature) driver. Dynamic drivers scale better in general and can cover all the frequency range while a BA driver has a hard time doing this and usually requires more than one in order to fine tune them to a certain frequency which allows them to compete with dynamics, even out do them according to the custom IEMs.
Updating my experience with some of the IEMs that I have - My Shure SE425 is much more comfortable than W4 especially when it comes to sleeping on your side.
Thanks, Lee, got it and I did Google it after you mentioned it.
Thanks, nikp, good to know. In the process of deciding what to get.
Consider the ECCI PR401... they're one of the lowest-profile IEMs I've seen. I do fall asleep with them (I'm a side-sleeper too) quite a bit since receiving them and they are VERY comfortable. Especially since they work best on shallow insertion - I find deep insertion IEMs disconcerting. Read about it in joker's super IEM thread:
Very good sound quality too and only 75 bucks.
I second the suggestion for the Yuin PK3. They have great sound quality and the earbud design means you wont block out your surroundings. I use the PK3 when im at my computer and dont want to block out all noise. They sound fantastic!
+1 for the q-JAYS as well...I slept with them for over 2 years and they never let me down!
