This truly needs to be stickied. I've looked at this thread a long time ago and is the reason why I got the DBA-02's. I still look at today just to check out new IEM's.
 
It will be 100% perfect when the MC5, SM3, Westone 3's, Shure models, and UE Triple.Fi.'s get reviewed.
 
If you're specifically looking for it this thread shouldn't be hard to find - it's the first google search result for 'multi IEM review' or 'IEM review thread' or 'x IEMs compared' (where 0 < x < 115)

. Of that list Shure IEMs are the only ones I have no plans to review. Everything else is currently in progress.

Indeed. Hope there is a Westone 2 review as well. Can I audition your DBAs bai?

Yes, there will be a Westone 2 review

. Any earphone that is on the 'to do' list in post #8 is already in my possession and (most likely) is gathering dust awaiting its turn.

Will you look at adding the Sunrise SW-Xcape one day?

Yes, I have a couple of possibilities for getting a go at the Xcape. Hopefully I'll have my hands on it sooner rather than later but not too soon as I've got loads of other write-ups to post.

Thanks ljokerl, for the additions.
 
I think, too, that this thread should be sticky, I find it just imprescindible even in the (strange) occasions where I don't think the same as you in some model. I don't think anybody can find a more comprehensive and plain good list of IEMs in the net.
 
THANKS, dude

Amusing, since searching Head-Fi it's actually incredibly difficult to find. I am totally down with all the sticky sentiments - maybe it would lessen the number of 'Help - first time poster needs earphones!' threads.

Fantastic but why no Shure reviews?

@ Joker: great Fischer Audio Silver Bullet review.
 
I have received mine today from Russia. They really sounded amazing from the start. As you wrote in your review the cables are very thin above the y-split.
I always worry about breaking them. Like this the SBs do not look as if they were built to last...but the sound ... wow

i AM STILL waiting for bro joker's review on MILES DAVIS tribute...


I hope I'm interpreting this wrong but it does not look like you are being very appreciative of what joker has been doing. I wish there was some kind of guide such as this when I first got started in this hobby. It would have saved me a good amount of money (..maybe well probably not.) Writing reviews is not easy especially something such as this where there are lots of reviews. It takes a lot more time and effort that you may think if you have never written a review before. Also there are things other than reviewing that joker does so it's not like he can just pump out reviews like a machine.

Pretty much what rawrster said - I simply haven't had any pass through my hands since I started this thread and having some previous experience with lower Shure models I've never been tempted to buy any.

I say if you can get $68 worth of audio enjoyment out of them, it's still worth it in the end, but here's to hoping that the rev.2 is a better all-rounder

Thanks, rawrster, though I think his post came out sounding very different than was intended due to language barrier. Either way the MD review will be done when it's done

I did leave the possibility of interpreting it wrong

If the rev.2 of the Silver Bullets has a much better cable and well a strain relief near the housing I might be tempted as long as sound isn't changed like what they supposedly did with v1 and v2 of the Eterna. It does depend on what earphones I have then but good deals always get me in the end ;p
