The Dunu is wonderfully coherent, but can get just ever so slightly hot in the upper treble regions, which can make things sometimes sound a little forced and artificial. The PP8, on the other hand, is more natural and also more neutral. So, as I said, the ER2XR fits in right between those 2 for me. It's got the coherency that I like about the Dunu, but a more natural signature which makes it shift more in the direction of the PP8, but with what feels like some added warmth.
Nothing feels overdone. The details are there, the bass remains in check and can give you a healthy kick when called upon. Sound stage does suffer a bit, though, but that's pretty much to be expected with a set of IEMs that require deep insertion. Noise isolation is excellent, but that too contributes to that narrower perception of the stereo image.
At a price of around $130 I really cannot recommend any other IEMs above these.
Beyerdynamics piercing treble on the DT990 pros, the veil from Sennheiser 600s without proper amplification, all Bose headphones I’ve used in general (SoundSport Ultra/True/etc).
This price for performance is something I haven’t seen since purchasing the Creative Labs Aurvana 1s.
I don’t want to sound as though the are without issues but...for the money, this is the best pair of IEMs I’ve ever had sub $500 mark.
Westone 2, Westone 3, Westone 40, Westone 60
Shure 215, Shure 845
Ultimate ears (pre logitech) custom IEM (still have these), triplefi, superfi.5
With all the non-customs I have used every tip known to man.
I have owned an amp or 2.
I just got these ER2XR and I am blown away. Are they fun sounding? YES. Are they flat and accurate? NO. Do they sound great? Yes? Are they forgiving to recordings and devices? YES!!
If you want sound isolating IEMs that you will use straight out of your phone and will listen to 192 aac (itunes) or a step up from that (but still short of flac, etc) this is the best you can buy IMHO.
I just do not have it in me to go full boat any more. Buy that I mean a DAC, lossless files and maybe an amp. The difference during best case tests is just not that big to my nearly 50 year old ears. And if the recording is not great or source not perfect these blow away higher end gear. Truth is if you use all that high end stuff and the recording is not great it will suck every ounce of joy out of the song you might have once loved. These (and other mid level iems) will always remind you of why you loved a song. And still take your breath away from time to time.
Bass is strong but not 'Beats' level (which I find too much). I find bass powerful and alive. Mids are recessed a bit. As I said, it is a fun sound profile. Your U or V shape.
The form factor of these is great. My first pair of ETYs. You can get an easy seal that will not slowly pull out like many universal IEMs. They are tiny and that means you can have them along with headphone to lightning cable all in a tiny pouch or case that takes up no space.
The biggest downside by 1000x is these do not come with a mic or volume buttons. At this price point I think a lot of people are looking for a middle ground - critical listening sometimes and daily use which sometimes (unfortunately) requires talking on phone.
Build: The build quality on these is amazing. I chose to buy these because of the build quality. I accidentally dropped an amp and the aux ripped out of the aux port and no damage to either. Quite impressive.
Sound: The sound is the best part. Neutral sound signature but not flat sounding, instead it's energetic. It's difficult for an IEM with a relatively neutral sound signature to not sound boring and analytical. First time I've gotten an energetic and lively sound from something without a V signature which sacrifices midrange capability for more energetic sounding music. I can listen to any genre of music with these. I'd say the highs stand out the most.
The only downside is the lack of accessories. Only 1 pair of foam ear tips and 2 pairs of silicone ear tips and a carrying pouch. However, the accessories are good quality. Also the foam tips are large and they don't have as much stiffness after a week or 2 of use. They fit stiff at the beginning but now are less firm and fit perfect for me.
Sound isolation is best with the foam tips compared to the silicone tips.
Soundstage and imaging are ok. Not amazing but ok. Typical for IEMs in general to fall behind in imaging and soundstage but considering the size and weight there are incredible. Instrumental separation is good. Unless you really know what exceptional soundstage and imaging sound like you won't be able to notice. The foam tips weigh more than the actual module which is funny to me. The weight without tips is either to light to be weighed by a scale or 2 grams.
If you're fine with ear tips going further into the ear then usual these are exceptional.
