Fiio E5 + ADDIEM's!


So, I heard a lot about the ADDIEM's (Apple Dual Driver IEM's, also know as the Apple In-ear headphones w/ Remote and Mic), specially about how good they are for sub 50$ IEM's, specially when paired with the Fiio E5.

So, I bought them both, to add to my Zagg Z.buds and NuForce NE-7M, and complete my best of the below 100$ IEM set. ..




















Damage, 40$ for the ADDIEM's (New!) and 15$ for the Fiio E5.
(Yes Super, yours is here too!)

The E5 needs about 40-50 hours to burn in, and my ADDIEM's have only about 2-3 hours in them, and I guess they need a good 30-40 hours too,.So, I'm not expecting wonders out of the box! Impressions later today as I use them on the way to and back (and at ) from Work!

Re: Fiio E5 + ADDIEM's!

Impressions.

ADDIEM's **** without the E5. I already knew that a week back when they arrived and I was waiting for the E5's, but anyway. There is absolutely no bass when hooked up directly to the iPhone. Its just Mid's and High's, the soundstage is incomplete and the sound is too bright as well.

Once you hook up the E5 (mind you, both of them are not burned in yet) everything changes. The soundstage is full, but still concentrated more towards the mid. The bass has bunch, music is a little warmer, Soundstage seems complete.

But right now, I still prefer my NuForce NE-7M.
Why? 2 things, firstly its soundstage is complete WITHOUT and amplifier (it does lack on Mid's compared to the ADDIEM's but its still "enough"), secondly the L Connector makes like 100 times easier in the pocket and you dont ahve fear of the jack spoiling. No really! My Z.buds jack has spoilt the 2nd time now. Need to get it RMA'ed again -.-...
Oh, Z.buds, dont get me started. Build Quality is shoddy, Bass is overblown (not if you like a lot of bass though).

Another thing that really goes well with the iPhone and makes my life much much easier is Volume Media Controls. It turns the Volume Up button to next track (also to start music if its not playing already, Volume Down button into Previous Track and a quick Volume Up + Down to stop music.
Volume control is on the E5 so you dont need it after setting a certain volume!
Volume ** comes with an SBSettings on/off switch, so it takes 2 seconds to turn it on/off!
