Default hje450e's comfy with bass too?

hi guys,

please help me as im going round in circles here!

Im looking for a really comfy pair of IEMs with good bass. price wise anything upto 90 is ok with me. Ive tried VBs in the past and found them too big and heavy for my little ears

my current IEMs are some cheap philips ones. they are in the style of ep630s and really fit well....but alas are a bit light on the bass front. the rest of the sound is nice a clean though.

i was thinking of some e10s, but sonds like they are similar size to the VBs .... plus i dont do over the ear cables :/

then i came across Final audio auria iiis (not sure that name is totally correct btw) - think there were complaints about build with them

so just came across JK's mention of these ones - and they initially seem to fit the bill i think - any thoughts?

Panasonic RP-HJE450E-R Ergo Fit Ear Canal Headphones - Red

cheers

What Philips earphones do you have? The SHE3570/80/90 series does have a really good deep bass.

Also, don't be in a hurry to buy new phones if you have not played with the settings in your player. Rockbox has a bass setting that is an easy way to boost the bass. Try it (or something similar if you are not using Rockbox) - it can sometimes give good results. Equalizers give a more sophisticated way to modify the sound to your liking.

The SHE3590 and its predecessors are budget earphones. 12 pounds would possibly gotten you them. The model name is in the cord, in the place where it splits.

The SHE3590 could be even cheaper than the SHE8000. Anyway, good luck with the Panasonics!

thanks sleepmode

actually i think the 8000s are getting better - burn in maybe - at first they had no bass at all, esp using em with clipzip - so now using desire with poweramp - have had to almost max out the eq for bass though!

cheers

I'm glad you like the HJE450. It is my favorite IEM due to its great comfort and fit.
It is one of the few IEMs with oval channels. The ear canal is oval, so why do almost all IEMs have round channels?

If you crave even more deep bass that is not exaggerated, then get the Sony MDR-EX210B. The HJE450 has 12.5mm drivers, while the EX210B has 13.5mm drivers. Sony has an extra bass IEM with 13.5mm drivers(are the drivers the same as in the EX210B?) the housing of these two are very different though. Extra bass is too much for me. I like the EX210B just fine.

hi JK - thanks

yes comfort is one of the most important things to me too - thats why i like these and my IE2s also - very similar channel shapes i think - yeah im not sure why other are all round either

i think are a very good all round pair of IEMs - very easy to live with

cheers

If you want sound that is very much like the Soundmagic E10, then get the Soundmagic ES18. The ES18 is 1/3 the price of the E10. I don't have the E10, however I have read many reviews saying that the ES18 sounds very much like the E10. I love my ES18. The E10 and ES18 have just 10mm drivers though, so they don't give as much deep bass as the RPHJE450 or the XB210B. The ES18 is very musical sounding though, with great highs and a great midrange. I wish Soundmagic would come out with an IEM similar to the ES18 but with 12.5 mm or 13.5mm drivers.
