No suprises. :wink:

Ultrazino prefers the sd3 over eke's favorite iem ie800, they(ie800) don't have the best reputation in the german hifi forum(the iem crowd there prefer BAs), at this level it simply depends on whom you ask.


But the SD3 isn't on the same technical level at all, even accounting for signature preferences.

The IE800 isn't my fave :wink:

Just referring to :'The Sennheiser IE800 is probably my favorite IEM to date..'from the first post, flat-4 comparison.


That was over 2 weeks ago. You can't expect that to still be valid... :)

Still, it doesn't change much.

Really? And yet even the summary of the asg-2 comparison was a close call.

Will you lend sinth the asg-2? I bet he's curios and it would be interesting to read the result, I was not surprised by this one, Sinth seems a bit shocked. :D
Unfortunately I am nowhere near to get my hands on the asg-2 just for testing and my curiosity is limited because I am very happy with the sd3. :wink:

I would have, but he said he wouldn't be willing to, given the distance.

This is Carlsan's pair. He also owns the ASG-2, so he can also give his comparison when I send it back, if you don't trust mine.


So what is your favorite now?


That would be the ASG-2.

Don't the hybrid tips have smaller bores? Wonder how that affects the sound. I should try that today.


Yep. They require a very particular chain of curses and profanities in order to slide on correctly. Consider me thankful that the bore on the G-2 seems much, much more solid than the one on the IE8 :wink:

SD3 added to second post.

Very interesting!
Thanks!

Now I really want to hear Carlsans comparison. The part with the bass that bleeds everywhere (you should not try to picture that....) seems odd to me. Could it be that so many people don't hear that or just don't care about it?

I don't even own one of these phones and I'm still excited about every bit of impression about them here :D

Thanks guys.

I'll send it out to Carlsan tomorrow. He'll have it in a couple of days.
