    Because of the phrasing or because the thirteenth month is just as fake as pro wrestling? :p

    I think even the non-BE GR07 has that deep bass that the ZERO (and to a lesser extent the RE-400) lacks. I had to send my GR07BE away as soon as I got it to get some measurements taken so I didn't spend that much time with it but it seemed to be a little smoother up top than my mkI GR07, so that might be an added bonus. It probably still won't be as refined as a HiFiMan set but if you're just getting it as an alternative that shouldn't be a problem.

    Yeah, that post has reached some sort of word/character/size limit and now takes about 24 hours to refresh after each edit. Not too thrilled about that.

    If you just want impactful bass the Senns (most Senn IEMs, actually) are great but the EPH-100 does pretty much everything else better than the IE7 to my ears. I didn't clearly prefer the IE7 to the VSonic GR06, which is pretty disappointing considering the price gap.

    The CK100 has mediocre bass extension so that's probably not what you want. The EX1000 drops off a little, but not too much. The PFE and UE900 are pretty flat. They are all very detailed IMO, though the PFE is a little too recessed in the lower midrange for me and the UE900 is a little recessed in the upper midrange. I might be wrong but hasn't Phonak closed down? That would put a question mark by the 232 for me in case of warranty issues, etc. As for the UE900, as long as you're okay with it being flatter and more accurate than the TF10 overall it shouldn't be a problem.

    Hey I am thinking about getting some new IEMs soon, but I can't figure out which pair would be the best for me. I listen to mostly Rock, EDM, and Hip-Hop. The ones I have been considering are the HiFiMAN RE-400 and the Rockit Sounds R50. I am going to be using them for traveling so I need them to isolate decently as well as be relatively robust and not likely to break. If you could help me out that would be really cool.

    yeah thanx GN-0015
    :)

    They are both neutral-sounding earphones and both isolate well but not as well as some others. Biggest differences between the two would be in fit (R-50 has to be worn over the ear) and sound, with the RE-400 sounding warmer and smoother and the R-50 being quicker and brighter. Not sure which to trust for long-term durability - none of my earphones from either brand have malfunctioned... yet.

    Can I suggest adding the "value" rating to the charts?

    Also had a post to make, haha.
     
    So, 
     
    I'm looking for some new IEM's. Been using some FXT-90's for a long time now. I love them, and recently switched them out for a pair of M5s (MG7 driver). I noticed a huge shift in sound with the M5s which have a much darker signature and learned a lot about my preferences. So now, I'm looking for a new set of IEM's with a more analytical, spacious sound. I love detail, separation, and imaging. One thing I also loved about the FXT-90 is it's dynamic presentation. It has a musical quality and much more intimate portrayal of vocals and strings, as compared with say the M5s, which sound distant in comparison. This is great for some music, but not most of what I listen to (which tends to be orchestrated film score or soundtrack type of music, or intimate acoustic stuff).
     
    Been looking at GR07, DBA-02, ER-4S, RE272/262, and someone recently turned me on to the R-50. I posted a thread if people would prefer to reply in there, but I'm just looking to get some input and comparisons, suggestions, etc. I know a lot of the things I'm looking at are hard to get ahold of right now...specifically, there's a *couple* new GR07s, the 262/272 don't exist in a retail space anymore I don't think, etc etc. So I'm kind of relegated to looking in the FS forum, which is fine, but it means I can't always find what I'm looking for. Anyways, I'd appreciate any input.
     
    Thanks!

    I took it out because there wasn't much of a point - having the table arranged by average score and clearly displaying the price pretty much takes care of that. Most of the value scores are clustered in the 6-9 range anyway.

    The FXT90 is the most intimate of all those - the 'analytical' IEMs tend to sound wide and spacious, and all of them are different in signature from the FXT90. The FXT90 would actually make a nice compliment to an accuracy-oriented IEM. The sets you're considering are about on-par IMO so if you don't have more specific requirements just try whichever one you can get the best deal on and go from there. It would probably be the Brainwavz B2 or R-50 at ~$120 new.

    The UM3X has very good detail and images well but its presentation was mostly in-the-head for me. If that's what you're looking for it's very hard to beat. There are a bunch of in-ears with a more out-of-the-head presentation, though.

    Hmmm, very good insight, thank you. How much price increase are we talking for an upgrade that would be a good soundstage with that kind of intimate feel the FXT90s give? Any recommendations along those lines?
