How you know it's solid? You audition it before?

The price is definitely worth it if you enjoy good music.

well by username i cannot tell ...i am known as Nocturnal310 on jaben forums

how about u?



Another IE 7 user.

Here's mine.

You compare Sennheiser HD555 with IE7 before? Somehow while HD555 sounds fuller and better sound staging, it seems to be not so neutral and add "some colourings" to the music. IE7sounds so natural and detailed that I can hear serious recording flaws for those compressed music (128 bits). In the end, I have to re-rip all my music to loseless formats.

I lend my IE7 to my colleague to listen, and he refused to return me until a few hours later.

I cannot get enough of IE7...they are really amazing.....perfect bass...smooth mids and sparkly highs.

well i sold off my HD555 long before IE7 so cant do fair comparison but HD555 had a dry sound which was good for male vocals and various other music but not for Rock & Trance....the bass was layered but didnt go very low.

HD555 is a great headphone for entry into audiophile world..but soon u realize u can get better headphones also ..its a transitionary headphone.

eBay sells Bose in-ear earphones for approx $70SGD incl. shipping

i've never heard them before so i can't comment on the sound quality but it might be a good alternative to those looking to get relatively cheap and good earphones.

don't bother with bose triports. They're overrated. I've a friend who owns them and she says that they don't even sound as good as CX300.

Hi, anyone used Cresyn LMX-E630 AL before?

My pair died and I'm looking for earphones which are as Good as the Cresyns but with better fit.

Budget is $50. Recommendations guys?

http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/sh...php?p=37298902

BTW I tried the EP-630s at Stereo and found them too weak
