View Full Discussion I already love my Nuforce EDC IEM's, and now I'm interested in trying out their BA Drivers, for their supposedly better clarity, detail and smoothness. I just can't decide if I want the Nuforce HEM 1, HEM 2, or the HEM 4? I can't afford anything higher than the HEM 4's, so for now I just need to pick one of those 3 unfortunately 😕
I really only listen to audience Recordings of shows/concerts (with HQ mics, preamps and recorders). Mainly what I recorded myself, so I want something that is balanced overall (lows/mids/highs), with great clarity and detail, and with a good low-end that's punchy and decays quickly, if that helps you narrow down the search for me 😎🎧
I noticed that the HEM 1 and 2 are almost identical, but the HEM 2 comes with more accessories and has a BA driver WITH the crossover, and I think that is the only difference between the two, correct? Is the difference audible though? I certainly don't mind spending the extra $25 on the HEM 2's (vs the HEM 1's @$75), as long as it's worth it! And I don't have to wait for the next HEM 1 drop here on Massdrop if I go for the HEM 2, because a few places online have them for $100 even in stock! So please take that into account as well please 👍
Thanks in advance for any help, advice or experience that you can give me regarding the 3 different types of the Nuforce HEM's (1, 2 & 4)😇🎧
And FWIW, my setup is:
Sony Walkman NW-A35 (with tempered glass screen protector & TPU material case with WM Port cover)>Darktrain Custom Right Angle 1/8" cable>FiiO E11K HP Amp>Massdrop x Nuforce EDC IEM's>Comply Isolation+ Large tips!
Thanks for the reply bro! I've since acquired a pair of the Primo 8 IEM's and do love them, although I wish that they had a tad more low-end to them! I also really like the EDC's too.
So from all of the reviews I've read, I think that the HEM 2 is more geared towards me and what I want in a Nuforce IEM! Supposed to be a bit warmer than the Primo 8 and the rest of the HEM Series are, with the resolution and detail of a BA Driver! I've found them online for $100 even brand new, so I will probably grab a pair of those pretty soon!
I'm also looking at the Westone UM Pro 30 IEM's, since they have a 3 Driver BA setup, and are supposed to have more low-end than the typical BA IEM! I'm saving up now and found them a few places online for $250, which is much cheaper than their average price of $400😎👍😇🎧😉
So right now I'm not sure if I should grab the HEM 2 or the Westone UM Pro 30 IEM's? I just want a little bit more bass than the Primo 8's have, but with the same amazing resolution, soundstage and detail!
Thanks again for getting back to me, I really appreciate that!
