Ask Your Own Question
- The best possible sound IF you can do without the isolation
by Malcolm on 17/09/2016 Always been a fan of armature based IEMs, but decided to have a try with the dynamic IE800s. Being used to memory-foam tips with all my other IEMs, my first day with the IE800s was very frustrating as I tried to find a fit. The supplied silicon tips are comfortable, but I found the feeling of an insecure fit and almost total lack of external noise isolation disconcerting. In the end I forced some foam tips onto the IE800s, this gave me a secure fit and sound isolation, but killed the sound. So, back to experimenting with the supplied tips. Eventually I discovered the correct positioning was with the medium silicon tips, just making a light seal in the outer part of the ear canal. A much shallower insertion than I am used to with say Shure SE846s.
BUT it was worth the effort. Using the supplied tips and correct insertion provided the best sound that I have ever achieved with IEMs. Using a Sony ZX-2 DAP into a Chord Hugo DAC/amp the IE800s produce a detailed, airy sound, with plenty of bass extension, and a much bigger soundstage than my deeper inserted armature designs. Sounding closer to the full size HD800s (perhaps this is no surprise).
So, in a quiet venue and sitting still, the best possible sound is available with the IE800. However, I wouldn't dream of trying to use these in the gym, or even sittng still in a noisy plane.
