Review of Earsonics ES3

Audio123 has a review of the Earsonics ES3 triple BA driver IEM over on Head-Fi.  From the review they sound like an interesting IEM to which audio123 thought were superior to the well reviewed Noble Trident.  It should be noted that the ES3 is nearly 40% more expensive than the Trident.

Pros – Full-bodied presentation, Midrange, Soundstage
Cons – Accessories

Review of New Oriveti Primacy IEM

Dobrescu George posted an extensive review of the new Primacy in ear monitors over on Head-Fi.  The Primacy is another of the new hybrid trend with dual BA and single dynamic drivers. While there are comparisons with various IEMs I wish there was one with the well received 1-More hybrids since they are priced around 1/3 of the Primacy.

Pros – Smooth Sound, Build Quality, Soundstage Width, Excellent Travel Case, Well-Defined Bass, Non-Fatigue Treble, Natural Sound, Price
Cons – Minor Driver Flex for some people

ToneKing TO65 IEM Review

According to audio123’s review of the TO65 over on Head-Fi the IEM is “politely smooth” with its laid back treble (as compared to the TO150.  Like the TO150 the TO65 is a single dynamic driver earbud.  From one online market site it appears that the difference between the TO65, TO150 and TO200 is simply the impedance with the prices of all three within a few dollars of each other.

Pros – Smooth, Stage, Detachable Cable
Cons – More Extension

HiFiMan RE2000 IEM Review

Twister6 posted a review of the HiFiMan’s RE2000 IEM over on Head-Fi. It is a single dynamic driver IEM priced at a flagship TOTL price ($2,000).  From the reviews it seems to compare well with IEMs priced in the $1,500 range.  While I do own some of the IEMs in this price range I would recommend steering clear of the IEMs over $1,000.  Unless weight and size are critical to you such as when my job required 100% travel, I would recommend purchasing a great pair of headphones and DAC/amp.

Pros – detailed hi-res sound, excellent bass response, wide soundstage, unique topology diaphragm tech, removable cable.
Cons – price, ergonomics of the design, eartip selection.

George Dobrescu posted an extensive review of the DK-3001 over on Head-Fi.  From the review it sounds like a great 3BA/1dynamic driver IEM.  Priced around $500, it is middle of the road for a quad-driver IEM.

Pros – Relaxed Signature, Smooth Sound, Strong Bass, Large Soundstage, Good Instrument Separation, Good Comfort, Large Number of Accessories Included, Useful Carrying Case, Great Value, Musical, Romantic, Natural
Cons – A tad too polite for metal music, The sound Might be too relaxed for some.

Ryanjsoo has posted a review of the six BA driver AF1120 IEM over on Head-Fi.  From the review it sounds like these are great IEMs for the money.  Read the extensive review by clicking the link below.

Pros – Stunningly balanced, Exceptionally linear bass and midrange, Very detailed, Great soundstage depth and imaging, Perfect comfort
Cons – May be a bit neutral and polite for some, Thin, tangle-prone cable, Loose, keyed MMCX connectors, Sub-bass extension isn’t as exceptional as the rest of the sound
