Hi! Not sure whether this is the right place to ask this, but I'm considering getting im70 as a replacement for the kilpsch r6 that I sadly lost.. Heard rave reviews about it, has anyone compared the two before, is it significantly better than r6?
I haven't personally compared these two models side by side but the ATH-IM70 is one of the popular models within its range, I actually find it a steal for its price as well. But of course, sound is rather personal so you might want to try them out first and check if this model will suit for the genre of songs that you are listening. Have fun exploring!

Got myself the ANC33is. For the price/value, can't be beaten. Got it for 98 from IT Show. Now, there are times I just turn on the noise canceling even when there is no music just to remove the crowd noise.

i happen to own both, the r6i and the im70.

like the guys from Stereo say, sound is a subjective thing, and it depends on your ear's sensitivity as well. no point getting a hi-fidelity or low bass one if you can't hear the full register as we age.

here's a summary on what i like and don't like about the both:

r6i
Likes:
small and super portable
comes in white - looks great
good high frequencies - pin sharp
sturdy build - cabling and body
can use it as my mic for conference calls

Dislikes:
comfort - the ear buds they provide don't suit me - it hurts after an hour and the biggest buds are like medium sized for most other brands
noise isolation not as good as expected
bass performance is par only
straight jack


im70
Likes:
balanced sound with surprising great amt of detail - dual driver
lows and bass are tight
ear buds fit better
noise isolation is really decent
L jack
CABLE INTERCHANGABLE
1 year warranty

Dislike:
no mic
body a bit plasticky
super not used to the cable-over-ear style
takes up slightly more space in the bag

test tunes: Dr-X Daimon Michiko OST
youtube.com/watch?v=45Zr-G7Lb_s

Conclusion:
Sound-wise i like im70 more. you dont have to run-in to get the full performance. the bass sounds surprisingly tight as well. for a cable interchangable dual driver at sub-$150, it's probably the best value for $$ buy. But for those who does sports esp running with it, the cable behind the ear may hurt after a while.

hope that helps!

You can have a listen to the AT-HDC5 upgrade cable. It pairs very well with the ATH-IM70.
