being more of a bass person i prefer the Brainwavz M1 in comparison with the Soundmagic PL30. Just seems more fun overall when im listening to music.

my a-jay's two died today too. Left side. Seems like this is a common problem among the A-Jays.

Looking for a decent earphone to replace it. Budget less than $120. Any recommendations?

I watch movies more on iphone, so clarity is quite important to me. As for music, I cant differentiate anything, so it probably doesnt matter.

Thanks guys.
u can try beyerdynamic DTX 80. Beyerdynamic is well known for it's clarity.
RE0 is good as well but it's over your budget. But no harm trying.

Hey guys, imma looking for a IEM to replace my EP630. My budget is around $50-$70. Not really an audiophile but more like looking for a IEM that is of decent sound quality and comfort around that of EP630. Below is some of the IEM that i had gathered reading through some of the reviews lying around. Needed advice in the few models below before making a decision to go back to EP630 or to get an "upgrade".

1) Sound Magic PL30 (~$45)
2) Beyerdynamic DTX80 (~$70)
3) a-Jays One/Two (~$50/~$70)
4) Brainwavz M1/M2 (~$45/~$70)
5) Fischer Audio Equilibrium v2 (~50)

Feel free to intro some comparable models as well as the estimated price yea?

ThankS!!

Hi all, I just got myself Klipsch S4 IEM, but when I plug it into my ears it sounds very "deep" & "muffed" without details on highs, is this normal for IEM? Could that be I've got a counterfeit item?

It's an IEM.... most of the time IEMs don't require much burn-in, and don't improve much. Main purpose of burn-in is to get the driver to "loosen up" a little, which generally improves bass quality/quantity.... not much effect on highs... I think....

Anyway, some of the Jaben in-house brand earphones do pretty decently, for <$80. Can't really think of any specific model names atm though..

reshelling will cost you around 300+ already. you have to include cost of ear impression, shipping cost, reshell cost and cable cost.

btw where else other than stereo sells shure triflange? i went stereo today but they ran out of stocks.
