can anyone tell me how these would compare to shure se215, for me the se215 sound perfect with the kind of music I listen to, drum and bass, jungle, industrial techno, experimental, ambient. deep sub bass is most important to me, I like a darker sound. would these be an upgrade in sound quality or merely a side grade to something that sounds more detailed with less bass than shure se215. my budget is 200 but only if I can get something better than the 82 pound shures
Agreed! I love the mellow sound of the se215. I got the TIN T3 but they are so sibilant. Trying to sell them now...
I think these might not be for you... From everything I'm hearing they are sub bass light and neutral sounding with more emphasis on the treble... I'm thinking of cancelling my order due to this fact but I'm on the fence.
Honestly, I think it might be best to look elsewhere. You can spend a $1000 on IEMs and get something that is just not for you. I have tried many that while I could appreciate what they did, I would never buy them because they are not for my tastes.
Considering the other Tin IEMs, they seem to be focused on the treble lately (the only one that doesn't do that much is the Tin T2 and it still wouldn't be what you are looking for). I am not a fan of treble myself and also like the Shure SE215 so I will be passing on this one (a shame but it is what it is). It would mainly be a side grade or even a downgrade if you don't like the sound signature (which is likely). For those that would, I assume that they would enjoy it.
My Shure SE215 is noticeably bass heavy compared to other IEMs I've tried but it loses on clarity in the mids and treble. It's very warm sounding compared to what the reviews are saying about Tin P1.
You should be looking at getting the TFZ no.3 instead. The P1s are far better than the Se215 but the bass type is different. its not lacking its just so fast that seems lacking and you might not like it.
