Summary: MY TEST SETUP: MP3-player: Sandisk Sansa Fuze Music: FLAC Amp: Portable FiiO E5 - easy to drive with an MP3 player (you don’t have to turn the volume high) - extreamly wide soundstage - not ideal for bicycle because the you hear the wind-noise. The main reason for this is the big plateshape of the speaker’s back - but the advantage of this shape-form is that you can lie on your side (sleep-rest-chill effect in bed is superb) - in the first 3 weeks (at average use) the...
Summary: These earbuds has a warm sound, but with very nice mids, and crisp highs. I heard that lot of people say it has too much bass, but I think they are just enough with the knob turned to the max (maybe it can have even more bass). I found that they sound a slightly similar to the Klipsch Image X10. The cable is the best ive ever saw, they are soft and they have minimal microphonics. The only downside I found is that they don't block out much sound.
Pros: Very Very strong bass, mids are good, highs are crisp, comfortable, very strong build, almost no microphonic, replaceable cable
Cons: doesn't isolate too much noise, some people may dislike the midbass hump, carrying case is complicated (but cool:)
Summary: This is my first top tier IEM. I own it quite a long period of time.
I am very happy with the SQ.... Anyway here is my review after 5 days of usage =) ( i left it in seller website)
Честно говоря звук сразу после распаковки был ужасен :) Но я знал что динамическим затычкам надо время что бы 'раскрытся'. Так и произошло. Буквально через 5 часов они зазвучали значительно лучше.
Summary: I've been using Sennheiser IE8 for 2 years and its still awesome. sadly I lost it about 2 months ago.
The first time I use it, it sounded ordinary but after several days of burning in I finally found the true sound that is so amazing.
The sound is detailed, clean instrument separation, strong bass, and an awesome soundstage, and no microphonic...
Pros: Superb sound, very detailed, strong bass, an awesome soundstage, no microphonic, good built quality
Summary: So this is my last IEM upgrade I am planning on doing since I am more of an Over Ear type. However for work I needed a solid IEM. I got these at a great price, and I am plesantly surprised of how much of an upgrade over my CX-870's it is!
I love these IEM's, they are warm, bass is detailed, I can play everything from accoustic/vocals, Jazz, to Alternative rock and they sound crisp clean and warm.
Overall I am very glad I got them for $190 USD instead of full price.
Pros: great sound stage, amazing bass, treble, versitile
The Sennheiser IE-8: turning the earphone marketplace on its, um, 'ear' yet again.
5 April 2009
Summary: Despite being a relatively recent competitor to the earbud end of the headphone marketplace, Sennheiser’s superb, top-end IE-8 shows that they learn fast. Top money for a top-notch listening tool.
Pros: Stellar sonic performance, excellent comfort, very good noise isolation.
Cons: Minimal nitpicks: lackluster ‘unboxing’, fragile appearing cable for the price.
Summary: For years the Etymotic ER-4 series, e.g., Etymotic ER-4P Portable In-Ear Earphones represented the top of the line among in-ear monitor headphones. The Etys remain a good product (and an excellent buy), delivering crisp detail and excellent treble reproduction, but their weakness has been relatively modest bass performance.
