I’m kinda deliberating if I should get these or Oriveti OH500s. Would you be able to provide some comparisons? Or would you recommend other similarly priced IEMs?
I like to listen to several genres, but often times I prefer alternative rock, blues, jazz, and male vocals.
Thank you for reading my review. The S8 Freedom is more exciting with a higher level of energy. The OH500 has a lush and smooth sound. Cheers!
Really enjoy your review.
How is s8f compare to tsmr-5, please.
The S8 Freedom has more bass and the presentation is punchier. The vocals on TSMR-5 are more forward. Treble on TSMR-5 is smoother. Cheers!
Thank you for reply,
Because I am thinking to purchase one of them, can you please tell me more about the mid-range between this two iem, in addition, you have mationed that tsmr5 has more smoother treble, how does the treble sound compare to s8f, from the perspective of the extension, bright and airy.
Thank you really much:)
I hope you can read my bad English.
The midrange on the TSMR-5 is more prominent. Treble on the S8F has a slight edge for extension, brightness & airiness. There is reduced shimmer on the TSMR-5 which gives a smoother and fatigue-free top end. Cheers!
Thank you for answering.
Can you choose one for me, I mostly listen to pop, acg, classical.
For your genres, I recommend TSMR-5. Cheers!
Really nice review. Thank you! Multiple BA setups have always intrigued me and this seems to not disappoint.
Can you please give me your recommendation for sub 350$ iem that can handle black metal music with ease? It’s extremely fast, complex melody with a lot of things (instruments) happening at the same time so separation needs to be big priority. Also I love vocals so I do not want recessed midrange. If you feel like THE ONE is a bit pricier, feel free to stretch it to 500$.
I would be very thankful for your help.
Thank you! For your budget, I recommend the Penon Orb. Cheers.
