Smile Sony X1060 - IEMs

Just purchased the X1060

but am now unsure as to suitable high quality IEMs, was initially thinking of the Shure SE530 but now read of some noise (hissing) with this combination.

What are other X1060 users using?

Killa is right, Hammonda1. The sound cancelling only works with the included buds.

However, any headphone with a standard 3.5mm (1/8") plug will work for non-NC'ed music.

I have the Shure SE530 and I have NO hissing problem. They sound fantastic. I have not tried the included set mostly because I hate asymmetric cords. Why does Sony insist on doing this...

The asymmetric cord I like for two reasons. It's easy to know which side is left and which is right. It also lets the cord to the player stay on the left side of my torso where I found it was less likely to get tangled up with other things. It' not in the way of tying my tie, buttoning a shirt, buckling my belt, etc..

Thanks hpilot, I do have the 530 on order but didn't know whether to risk opening and using them and being dissapointed with any hiss.

Any one else have any experience with the X1060 SE530 combination?

There are extra contacts inside the X's jack (for the NC mic connections) and if you don't get a conventional plug all the way in it short across those connections essentially using the little mics as speakers, with potential hiss. Just make sure your plug is completely into the jack and you should be OK.

The Shure SE530s arrived today and there is absolutely no hissing with my X1060 and the combination sounds just great.

Thanks to everyone who contributed by replying especially hpilot and Dvinge.
