Article: Mid-Three Figure IEM Review


Recommended Posts

Just to note that I also purchased the Quartets after your review...I like the Quartets enough that I am stopping at this point.  So many iems have come apart I am loathe to spend more.  I will stick the lower end and TWS units (airpods pro 2, Sennheiser TWS3, Jabra 85t, Nura's that are now Denon Perls).

 

Oh...and I had the Sennheisers replaced ...  I must have caustic ears...

they tend to come apart where the iem is bonded to itself.  Both etymotics failed where the matte black elbow meets the barrel: image.png.8f1adbc892f80ab5f17e19740f9e891f.png.

 

 

The Westones (4R and 3 Pro) just fell apart...cable and device itself.  the Sennheisers had a battery fail.  B&W had one fall apart similar to the etymotics and I washed the others in the machine.  Ooops.  I used to travel quite a bit so would wear them everywhere...now I wear cycling indoors and riding the mower...in Texas heat.  I sweat a lot so the Caustic comment was literal.

 

I use the Kiwis/Cadenzas at the PC and wireless devices on the bike/mower/iPad-iPhone.
