Wireless is still complete shit atm. And earbuds are ALWAYS garbage. If you really want that there is the IWS i10s which is a copy-airpods which turned out better than the original.
Otherwise wired iems are the way to go.
>ANC
just get universal tubed IEM's. Blocks nearly all sound and doesnt fuck up quality while bombarding you with high pitched noise.
>warm
At 300 bucks nothing comes to mind but at a hundred there is the bgvp dmg. Not tubed but still isolates pretty well. You can get foam eartips for better isolation.

Looking for something with decent sound isolation and media controls. Would be great if I could get something with a removable wire and sound isolation upwards of 20dB (or even 15dB) so they can double as shooting plugs. Those bluetooth adapter things would be a nice bonus as well.

He's a head-fier and that site takes money from everyone like a whore. Crin himself also got into drama concerning paid reviews.

Might seem surprising but unlike HP reviewers we got a nice selection.

overly treble sensitive and has a clear preference for HD600 like sound. I think his personal tastes affect a bit too much his recommendations but still.

>sound isolation
Best offer is the TRN IM1. Its the only Full UV resin/tubed iem i know of at this price range. This kind of Iems is the best for isolation.
Its a bit bright though so if you dont like the treble you can put a bit of cotton in the BA tube to alleviate the issue. Sounds great once you do. For extra isolation invest in foam tips.
>>
>>69311189
No. the cable relief hole is 3.20mm in diameter and the mmcx connector i'm using (screw type) is 3.66mm and you want the hole to be just slightly smaller so it's nice and snug. You will need a drill bit but don't use a drill, you might shave off more than you need so just slowly drill it using your hands. The material is soft enough for you to do it by hand.
>>
>>69311223
B- is a good grade considering the price of everything in A and above. No one actually believes its the best.

These memes came today as well, the mmcx connector converter makes them really simple to use. Also pro tip, deep insertion gets rid of that nasty 6k peak so treble doesn't sound splashy and harsh. Might filter mod them once i get a second pair of these. For now these are great for reference listening.

Just take out the filters inside the ex1000s, apparently they're more dynamic? I get the feeling the filters mitigate some treble on the ex1000s but we'll see. I need to get a second pair so i don't fuck up.

>>69311411
I'm not talking about the mh755, i'm talking about the ex1000s. mh755 sound signature is quite different.
>>
>>69311434
Oh I thought you'd make a custom filter with a bunch of piddly SMT passives and cram them into the IEM. Which I'd consider doing since I have PCB manufacturing equipment and skills, though I'd really have to go for extra-small parts to fit in anything that isn't a KZ ZS10.
>>
>>69311471
sounds cool and would be really great to see. It's just fitting things into such small housings where there wasn't meant to be a pcb makes it an insane challenge.
>>
>>69311497
I agree. But changing the existing filter in those KZs for one that actually makes it sound good isn't a bad idea, though for the most part you could probably just swap parts for different values.

Another thought is to add an (active?) filter inline with the IEMs and after your DAP/phone. Like this you could flatten out unwanted peaks and broaden out troughs like a custom permanent EQ, that you could fit in a fairly small area. Though you probably couldn't power it off the TRRS's mic bias.

Hey anon, hope this helps. The EX1000 with me now already has the filter removed so I'm using old measurements from an old stock EX1000. There'll be differences in the upper treble but it shows the effect of the filter mod quite well.

did you find the upper mids to be better? They seem quite forward.

>>69311663
$300 if there's a bang for the buck iem available, if none I can use upto $600
>>
>>69311720
50/50. Surprisingly the treble becomes more tolerable without the filters because there is less contrast between the midrange and the 6k spike. Overall though I can live with one or the other, I don't think one is inherent superior to the other.
>>
>>69311604
>Videos
Any iem will do for any that tracking application. Comfort first. You didn't need super flat iem for that. You didn't do mastering.
>>
>>69311730
Sony ex800st (Diffuse field neutral, Low isolation), Etymotic er4xr (Diffuse field neutral, High isolation DEEP probing), Moondrop Kanas Pro (Harman neutral, Good quality but still made in china if that means anything to you), Massdrop Plus (Diffuse field neutral with bass boost, you have to go through assdrop)
>>
>>69311754
I was going to assume the same because listing at high volumes those peaks are a bit much though i'm finding a deep insertion to help a lot with the peaks and the way the nozzle is made being long and skinny makes me think that sony wanted people to insert them quite deep.

>i'm talking about the ex1000s. mh755 sound signature is quite different.
exactly, some people claimed ex1000 is diffuse field.
and compensation applied in the graph, it's basically diffuse field that published in 2013 harman target paper, a basis for current harman target.

For some people, that ~3k dip perceived as distance, and those peaks perceived as detail or directivity, those combined perception can create "soundstage" effect.
This also what happens to shp9500 and hd800/s.

I have them. They're easy to listen to and still very defined and sonorous for most of my music
Not perfect for things like acoustic, fem vocals, and orchestral pieces; but considering the huge variety in my daily listening they are fantastic.
I do notice them being driven a bit better off my Fiio e07k than off my phone's dac, *could* be placebo but it sounds like it adds definition and punch in the low end especially

For some reason like: >>69313016 the negative effects are reducing the iem sensitivity and reducing the headroom in the digital domain.

That makes any earphone sound terrible. No proper seal, everything sounds thin and harsh. You need the smallest tips you can find that still create a seal and let you go deep. The 6k peak will still be present but it won't be intolerable. Most people who try the ex1000 do so with a shallow fit which makes the peaks intense and over emphesized.
>>
>>69318770
It was a simple canal resonance check, leakage wouldn't touch the highs.
The initial fitting was already around the second bend, and the EX1000 isn't as fit dependent as most.

You should look at the BGVP DMG, they're really good.

I'll compare them now, though ES4s with oratory EQs are beastly and is my favourite.

Need some decent, rugged IEMs with a microphone, corded normal mic jack, no bluetooth or USB bullshit. Used mostly for work meetings while on the go, will be tossed into my laptop bag and generally abused. Budget is $350,000 USD but would prefer to spend less. Suggestions?
>>
>>69322878
Nice.
>>
>>69322740
>>69323009

disclaimer: I'm fairly new to IEM world, and I don't use shitty ass jargon words. I will just describe what I hear. I used Casiopea's album Mint Jams for testing of the ES4 and ZSN.

ZSNs, right of the bat, has a better fit and feel on my fairly-large ears compared to all KZs I have tried (ES4s are close enough though). ZSNs are also clearer sounding, and it actually makes the ES4s sounds muddy in comparison (the oratory EQ fixes that of course, but that's cheating).
Mids are totally more forward in ZSNs (which I guess makes them have that "in your face" sound). ZSN's bass is slightly thin (less body) on the kicks of the drums though for some reason? (especially weird since I've seen FR measurements of them almost being the same on the lows).

I'd recommend the ZSNs more if this is your first "nice" IEMs, or if you have a dark sounding set right now and want a clearer set. It also comes down to personal preference (some faggots here at /g/ completely dismisses that shit).

I had Andromedas, which I sold because BA bass timbre just wasn't doing it for me. They would be a great choice as an all-rounder with a warm tilt. I can't remark on the Samba or U12t having never touched them, but I know that the U12t has near-universal acclaim and honestly any of the three would be solid for your purposes, IMO. You best bet is to get out to a meetup or visit a shop that has at least 1-2 of them to try, otherwise happy hunting my dude!

I didn't know the fingernail trick for removing the MMCX connector and the stock cable is fragile as fuck, the shielding got lodged into the connector and I managed t remove it with a thin set of tweezers but one of the two half-pins that make up the center pin was accidentally knocked out. It connects and produces sound but every now and then produces a hiss interference as well. This only crops up when using mobile devices and not my desktop audio set up, but I have IEMs for mobile devices and headphones or speakers for desktop audio so...

When you eq to boost something, eg treble, you must reduce the mid and bass to avoid distortion, thus negative pramp value is needed.

Transformer conversion of input to high voltage suited for electrostatics. The restriction to high frequencies makes a tiny transformer useable. The diaphragm must be polarized. I can only assume this is being done with the signal without any other information.
It is not clear to me what engineering function an electrostatic unit in an IEM serves, but that is something else entirely.

>>69328628
>>69328617
>this dummy head
This is a free-field, or anechoic, response. Note the specific angle this references, 45 degrees. This lacks the usual characteristic of averaging out the 1kHz dip, which is from the shoulder bounce.
>depends on the room
A diffuse field is the averaged response of all directions at once. It refers to a specific physical condition. A near approximation would be locking you in a ball of speakers in an anechoic space and playing them all back at once. A specialized reverberation room is another.

Thick upper bass and lower midrange, bump in the middle treble. Not entirely clear which point is canal resonance (~8k?), but the large earpiece would make it hard to produce a deeper fit.
May lack a bit of deep bass.

If it were a stage monitor, they would broadly shelve the entire treble rather than just the top end. Think the tuning typical of Shure, Earsonics, Westone, etc.

>The FitEar EST was the first universal IEM to feature Sonion’s electrostatic drivers. Although they’ve now run rather rampant amongst manufacturers worldwide, I was interested to hear FitEar’s iteration of the new technology – especially given my experience with the Electro and Trinity. While the Electro adopts a more linear, reference profile, and Jomo’s Trinity endorses clarity, air and technical performance, the EST strikes a relatively healthy in-between. It’s a fun-sounding all-rounder very much in line with the Lime Ears Model X, Campfire Audio Andromeda and the 64Audio A18t.

>It’s a jack-of-all-trades with balance between body and clarity; warmth and definition. On one hand, it deals every genre with equal musicality. It’s a forgiving monitor that – pardon the cliché – sounds good with everything. Its midrange in particular is highly linear and pristinely clear, even if it could’ve been more saturated. But, I get the feeling it doesn’t flex its electro-muscles very often. Now, that can be a good thing; it’s more effortless than the Trinity, for example. However, to those looking at it as a potentially eye-opening experience, you might be left nodding, “M-kay.” But, those simply eyeing a fun-sounding, clear, do-it-all that’s more a cheaper A18t than the Electro is, the EST is a very suitable candidate.

Do you think this is a good description of how the EST sound like?

30 KB PNG
Finally sitting down to have a good listen to the EX1000 and in their stock form the tunning is quite brutal. There is a dip between 3k and 4k that contrasts the 5k peak making vocals sound blunted. Because the peak at 5k is juxtaposed by two dips on either side, that peak sounds incredibly emphasized. Listening to the hi-hats and snares on the song by Saba called LIFE makes these two issues incredibly apparent. His voice sounds nasal and the hi-hats are absolutely piercing. You cannot listen to that track without feeling violated at even low volumes. Those hi-hats hit that 5k peak perfectly and it's deadly.

Anyways, i've made a rudimentary EQ to bring up that 3-4k dip and tame the 5k peak enough that it is within line with the other frequencies. I've adujested some of the upper frequencies to even out the response as well.

Once you get past this hurdle the EX1000 is really really impressive. >>69312086 said that peaks account for extra perceived detail and that 3k dip creates soundstage but i don't believe that's the case.Sure peaks emphasize certain instruments but it's not pleasant and does not bring out details that might fall on other parts of the spectrum. After EQ the ex1000 still demonstrates a ton of resolution and detail across the frequency range. Sounds stage and imaging is still right up there for an IEM, not quite HD800 levels but it's still great, specially the imaging. It's well worth the trouble to EQ because these really shine after some tweaks.

If anyone has some more advance EQ settings for the ex1000 please link me.

It will vary on what they think is appropriate. Full range drivers work a lot nicer in IEMs than loudspeaker units, but a typical method is to assign a dual receiver to a single band.

different crossover points with each BA unit being specifically manufactured to take care or a specific frequency range. The company does further tunning and filters to get the FR just right.

I want clear and deep bass (listen to a lot of drum and bass) for <$250USD with anything but a 2-pin connector
>>
>>69339576
I think the Quads are muddy (mid bass) compared to DMGs though?

they are all crossovered usually groupped according to octaves (musical energy)

literally 20hz-100hz, 100hz- 2khz, 2khz - 20khz could would be common. Its easy to split and it stops intermodulation distortion (bass fighting treble)

Crossover design gets super complicated when using analogue passive components as they put a hard limit on the filters can like to use (1st 2nd 3rd order linkwitz-riley or buttersworth ) and then you get into the phase effects of crossover and the "group delay" and it gets complicated still. I wonder how many chinks model this versus just banging drivers together through trial and error. Im a fan of 18db buttersworths with an inverted midrange phase per the "le cleache" modelling i use on my ultracurve

GAY. any cord longer than 30cm is not wireless, those things are for full size can guys to strap to their headband.

[pic related] is what happens when you just shove a bunch of drivers together and dont do any tuning. Its fucking horrific.

Is there a better wireless in ear in the same budget range?

Which cables did you order? I just received my ZSN's today after ordering on Dec 21st. I'm enjoying them so far but I wasn't expecting the molded cables.
>>
>>69340381
You could remove them though?

Can I? Looks like it would be pretty hard to remove from the cable.
>>
>>69340482
you just pull it out...
>>
>>69340482
I use a knife at the end where it stops and slice it up a little bit, then I'd peel it off.
>>
>>69340502
A nail cutter would be safer though, since ZSNs have no metal-ass memory wire.
>>
>>69340491
I like to think I'm not a total imbecile, I did have to plug them in when I got them after all. I'm talking about the molded plastic shit that goes up and around my ear... not the cord itself.

Hi everyone, I managed to borrow a laptop from my friend and was able to setup the config for the EQ in APO from oratory. Is there any way to import this to Android for viper? Or about that anon with the wav file based on oratory? (for tin t2 btw) Sorry for being new to all of this.
>>
>>69340631
The FIREqualizer on the Viper seems too limited though? The only that could be done for Android is to load an IRS created in the AutoEQ software.
>>
>>69340799
I see. Yeah, I tried using Viperbox but it's limited to 20+ something in gain, and also you can't set a preamp. That guy mentioned that he has an irs for the convolver so I was hoping he could drop a link. I guess I'll just wait to get back home then and check AutoEQ. Thanks anon.

makes sense. crin ranked those iems as B tier which is kinda laughable at 1000+ dollars. Not that it's indicative of how great something is but i'd want some of those technicalities to flex for that amount of money. Sure fitear is using this new electrostatic driver but no one has quite mastered them yet. Jomo's trinity din't gain an edge over their previous attempt with BA only set ups and we've yet to see what moondrop will do with their flagship.
>>
>>69341073
I'm in a bit of pinch. Seems it's hard to get a really good IEM in the $1,000 to 1,500 range, preferably of Japanese origin.

Alternatively there is the 64 Audio U12t which is pure awesome but a bit beyond my budget.
>>
>>69341112
jesus dude, your nationalism/weebooness is off the charts. Did you consider the andromedas? Those have a big cult following in japan due to their japanese tunning. Great for jpop and female vocals.

If you really want to stay within japan and you don't care to get the best bang for your dollar i would venture into the following brands and models.

Hyla TE-5B or CE-5 if you can find them used. They are very limited iems but worth your time and money.
Kumitate Labs KL-Sirius, not difficult to find and within your budget.
Acoustune HS1650 or their lower end models. Great dynamic drivers and interesting designs that actually compete within their respective price range.

I can heartily recommend these. I have the HS1670 and not only that they sound excellent, they are a good value for the money. I love the tuning of these, it has a warm sound but has an extra treble sparkle that does wonders with female vocals and clarity but never reaches sibilance.

The funny thing is if you don't tell people that this thing is "only" a single DD IEM, they would probably have guessed that it's a multiple BA unit.
>>
>>69341380
It goes to show that multiple drivers aren't the only way to perfect your frequency response, tuning your acoustic cavity is equally valid.
>>
>>69341380
Forgot to mention that I'm a huge EX1000 fan (but sold them because of the treble peak and poor isolation) and this is literally their modern successor without the shortcomings. Basically I'm a DD IEM guy, BA can never reproduce the kind of bass dynamic driver does.
>>
>>69341424
i found the hs1650 to be less resolving and didn't have the speed and technical abilities of ex1000s. Without eq i can see why you'd go for the hs1650s. They're great for the money, easy to love tunning actually isolate but definitely not on the level of ex1000s. ex1000s is more of a in home/studio iem but acoustunes actually fit the role of portable hifi.
>>
>>69320502
>More neutral DM6
You know the DMG is a bassy as fuck IEM right?
>>
>>69341500
I kind of agreed, that was why I ponied up a bit more for the HS1670.
>>
>>69327527
That's compensated you dip
>>
>>69341661
I was mostly referring to the treble. The DMG’s have more mid-bass but less sub-bass than the DM6. It’s pretty bizzare considering the DMG has a dual diaphragm DD while the DM6 just has that fat Knowles bass driver.

>I want clear and deep bass (listen to a lot of drum and bass)
Get some iem tuned like harman bass, avoid mud area boost.
Moondrop products should be good. Or mh755 for best performance/value
>>69341724
Nope, er4sr has spec 20hz to 16khz.

dumb fucking nigger. You can buy mmcx for like 2 cents on ali express stores. chinks have had the tolling for years and manufacture for shure and shit. it costs them nothing its just a design choice
>>
>>69342287
Do you know what compensated means?
>>
>>69340263
no. kz arent the best but they do make decent offerings in the budget price bracket. You dont know what true garbage is until you try a qkz pair
>>
>>69341424
Mh755 if you're really care about the sound.
>>69342379
Compensated or raw didn't change the fact that er4sr is giving up around 16khz.

how do i fix these?

the left earphone goes blank after an hour of use, it reverse back after a while of resting
>>
>>69342659
Does it actually open back?
While only something superlux hd381 has better opennnes, because it's semi open.
>>69342698
Heat related?
>>
>>69342717
definitely, and someone mentioned a fix, is there really one?
>>
>>69342698
see
>>69322384

first make sure you have the torx bit to unscrew them

then run a soldering iron over the joints on the crossover / interface pcb on the back of the big driver. done.
