It maybe the eartips or... You're one helluva major basshead or... You got the EQ settings down wrong.

It is because of the ear tips. They affect the seal and how much bass is generated.

UM1 got much more bass than CK7 and E630 has about the same amount of bass as CK7. Among the in-ear earphones here i reviewed, CK7, E630 and ER6i have the lowest bass. Its the minimium i can acccept.

When testing a UM1, use a foam tip as they are easier to get a seal. Yellow foams and short complys produce little bass while the standard complys produce more. If such earphones are your 1st time, it is not easy cos normally, people need a few days to learn how to get the best fit and seal.

bought e630 in the end and glad i did. like wat afbug mentioned b4, it may not be e best out there but for e price, think its def worth it.

anyway for those who r interested n dun hav time to read thru e whole thread, i bought mine at $45 fr a shop on 2nd flr sls but think u can get 1 for $39.90 at Spore Poly or $42 at causeway pt. so go check it out if u are keen to get 1 n want to save some $.

yups, my first time using IEMs...

i went stereo last nite and the nice guys over there let me try out CK7 and UM1...

the CK7 is good (still not enuff bass for me but i assume its the seal part)

the UM1 totally no bass at all...but i think afbug is rite, it should b the seal/eartips

now i got the cresyn 630 and need to improve the bass...theory's moddin too pro for me!

what can i get on mkt that can improve the bass?

I dun think its got to do with the player. CK7 and E630 dun have much bass to begin with. There is a limit to E630's bass. Try a Shure E2 soft flex or foam tip. Also, remember to set your EQ correctly. Left hand most is the bass frequency.

Next time, spend 15-30 mins try and learning how to get a seal with a Westone/Ety/Shure. Try foams, easier to seal. No seal or bad tip, even a UM2 will have no bass.

Dun get your hopes too high, Like i said, Cresyn's bass is limited. ON the foams and soft flex, bass improves a little only. But its dependant on ears. You might get more bass cos you might be able to achieve a better fit or the Cresyn's tips really cannot make it for you.

You can get them at Stereo electronics if they still got stock.

Your soft flex is for E1/E3/E5? If so, cannot fit his cresyn. Cresyn can only take E2 soft flex.

You told me this so many times liao. It is for your case only. Most people cannot get a seal as good as you can. And maybe your mod damn power. On the average, its eartips, seal and design is not good for most ears.

Wait tell him can get a lot of bass but if he fail = disappointment. I also failed.
