dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersAnd now the Forza Metallo's lower-cost brother, the Forza Sport Hybrid. Costing $30 USD less than the Metallo and featuring moisture resistance, you might not expect it to be made as well or sound as good. I found the great bass to be about the same with each, although down around 16 hz this Sport Hybrid is slightly less Earth-shaking. Mids are similar, but the treble difference affects the mids somewhat. Using the same medium-large eartips on each, this Sport Hybrid is brighter by a few decibels. Your mileage may vary, according to eartips, ear canals, etc. V-MODA Forza Sport Hybrid In-Ear (IEM) Stereo Earphone review by Dale | Headphones Hangout Forum
dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersI can't rave about these IEM's to the extent that I did with the on-ear On2, because I'm not a typical IEM user. In fact, I wasn't looking forward to doing a review on these because I don't like to do a half-hearted review. So I stared at them for a few days wondering whether to just give them away, and finally decided to fire up the MS02 - the 'better' of the two, to see if I could maintain interest through a few music tracks. It sounded pretty good as I went along, so I figured that I'd throw the really tough stuff at the MS02, where I expected the outcome to be 'ho-hum'. Long story short, when I got to my high-res copy of Jimmy Smith's Basin Street Blues, and I heard the detail and instrument separation, I got interested all of a sudden. That's the short story. The longer story is good, because these are 'woodies', not expensive, and well-tuned at that. MS02 and Rain3 In-Ear Stereo Earphones - Review - MyMac.com
dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersHere's the perfect thing for an after-Thanksgiving purchase. A really, really good earphone, which BTW sounds a lot like the V-MODA M100 and Wireless. V-MODA 'Zn' In-Ear/Ear-Canal Earphone/IEM review | Headphones Hangout Forum
dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersHere's a really nice earphone - for once, a well-balanced sound from top to bottom. This is not a generic 'woodie', a few of which I've purchased myself that have a very choppy or uneven response. This is probably the best IEM I've heard below the Sennheiser IE800's price level.
