Product Description
NuForce’s HEM line features the latest balanced armature driver technology, custom-designed linear-phase crossovers, and the excellent sound quality we’ve come to expect from the company. Inside the acoustically calculated, vibration-free Lexan earpiece, each in-ear monitor has a different number of Knowles drivers that increases with the model number: The HEM2 has one per side, while the HEM4 has two Read More

Which one of these would make a suitable move from the EDC3s (as I'm having asymmetrical volume issues with my 4-month-old replacement pair and am now out of warranty)?

Oh, look! It's the Nuforce HEMs AGAIN. What a surprise... Let's see, a total of 134 have been sold so what does that come out to be? Something like one or two sales each time it has dropped? Massdrop should be changing their name to Nuforce (or SMSL) Direct sometime before the end of the year because that's just about all they're offering these days.

Is there any way of getting a replacement inline cable? I am losing sound in the ears because cable has come loose at point before mic.

Nu force hem4 or nuforce primo 8 vs ue900 any preferece.adv thanks plz tell
May 12, 2019
SabarnaI have UE900s and Primo8. Prefer The primo with spinfit tips. Never heard HEM4. Sound wise UE900s is a bit lackning in crunch in mids for me. More sparkle, more bass quantity. Primo8 is a bit more muted in the treble, lacks sparkle but good definition in upper mids. Compared to UE900s it sounds mid centric. I personally think the Primo8 is more resolving and has a more circular soundstage. The UE900s is wider. For most people I'd say UE900s is a better fit. The build was horrible a few years ago, don't know about now. Primo8 isn't that much better. If you like a slight V-shape and cash to spare I really like Nuforce/MD EDC. These days I don't care as much about absolute fidelity, the convenience and the fun sound signature when travelling by bus has won me over to using The EDC more and more. Though I haven't bought any in ears in the last few years so can't comment on all of the later releases of hybrids.

Just got HEM1
Packaging and build quality is great but sound quality isnt. Sounds warm and dark. Can't drive them hard either. Spend more money and get HEM2 or other brand. Disappointed.

I just received my HEM2's. I'm using the braided cable and the large silicone eartips. Isolation is very good and they sound fantastic OTB. Listening to some classical (Von Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker) on Tidal HiFi quality through my phone and Dragonfly Black. I find them very smooth sounding and warm. Highs sound pleasant and not piercing. Mids are very present with the sub bass kicking in when called for. Overall, they seem very balanced with neither one dominating the other. Sound stage is pretty wide. I feel like I'm sitting in the audience and can locate instruments as well as pick out different strings with ease as they present. Next I'll try some Jazz (Hiromi, as suggested - I like her a lot), and some contemporary pop and hip hop. I'm very glad I got these and am very happy with results just with my mobile setup. I'll try them through my MD 02 amp and CTH Tube Hybrid as well. These are great!

My SE215s need a replacement. I find myself replacing the cables too often and the mmcx connectors in the IEM have started coming loose.
Would you recommend these as an upgrade?
Sep 24, 2018
B3H1NDuFor me these were an incredible upgrade from the SE215's. I would recommend them. My only complaint is with the braided cable. Going from the plug to the LR split it is tightly braided. From the split up to the monitors the braid is very loose. I don't know if that is by design or just mine. That being said, I haven't had any sound problems.

FWIW, drop price for this week's drop was $95 for HEM2, or +$85 more for the HEM4.

That comment is from last year....

HnrtLMAO welp. that's much more obvious in the single-conversation view when it's displayed as "1Y" instead of "May 7, 201(X)"

This review helped me decide on joining this drop for the HEM2s: tl;dr: great sound for EDM and such. Twisted cable is utter crap; instead use the other included cable that has a mic.
The other factor is that these come with XL tips whereas the EDC drops did not. Poor seal = poor bass and I seem to have caverns for ear canal openings...
EDIT: XL sized ear tips were still too small and I couldn't get a good seal which degraded the sound quality. Returned.
