- Worst stock tips ever. Monoprice MUST know this, but at $8-$11 price range and how many they sell, no reason for them to change this.
- Odd design. For some people they will just flat out not fit in your ears. For me, it feels like my ear was the original mold. They fit PERFECT (well except for the stock tips).
- Awful Microphonic Cable. Meaning, every time you move the stock cable, you are going to get noise in your ears. Best to sit still using these.
Ok, on to the Pros
*Note* - to get the best sound out of these you HAVE to get aftermarket tips or steal tips from other IEMs you have. Most would say this is enough of a reason to give the 8320 a bad review, but once past this SUPER easy fix, your world will be forever changed, by a $8 IEM.
- Once the ear tips are replace (*Update, I now use the Comply T-400 Tips) the overall Sound Quality will blow you away. Though, I have no idea why these are called "Enhanced Bass" IEMs. They are not bass heavy at all. They are bass neutral. You hear the music the way it was meant to be heard. Not too much bass, not too much Treble or Mids, but just the right amount of each.
- The sound that comes out of these is perfection at a super budget level. They should not sound this good. They should not cost this little. But they do. They really do.
Of course you do not have to believe me. Check out the Head-fi forums and read for yourself. The best trained ears in the world will tell you the same things about these IEMs.
I can see why people give these lower ratings. These are not ready to go right out of the box. They need tips, they need the right shaped ears and to be used when not moving at all. Though once all these requirements are filled, they are 5 STAR IEMS. For me, they are 5 Stars and More.
My tests were consistent between the different sets. I have listened to the same familiar music tracks, and analyzed a swept sine-wave test tone (from 20Hz-20KHz) to compare the musical sound and frequency response. I am an experienced musician and audio engineer (though, my ears are showing some signs of age and "mileage").
What impresses me about the Monoprice 8320's is that they are quite flat and accurate across the whole audio spectrum, except for one noticeable hump around 8 KHz. The bass of the 8320 is a little understated, and won't be enough for folks who want moderately strong bass. However, the bass is adequate in relationship with the rest of the spectrum and showed no resonances at specific frequencies. It extends all the way down to 20 Hz. To my ear the 8320's have a sound is natural, clear, pleasant, uncolored and not "hyped".
It is possible that the reviewers who called these "tinny" might strongly prefer bass-heavy earbuds, may not have gotten a very good fit/seal, and/or may be referring to the bump around 8K. All but one of the earbuds I've tested had that extra presence at 8K-- perhaps that is typical?
For my ears, the 8320 are a little less snug fitting than any of the others I have. The shape of the driver prevents them from being inserted more deeply. It is important to keep the left distinct from the right because the tips are angled and won't fit well when reversed. I marked my right bud with a little red tape. They fit better in the ear if they are oriented so the "shark fin" is on top, and the cord comes out the top-front.Read more ›
Short review: If you want a cheap, comfortable pair of earphones that sound great out of the box and you don’t want to bother with using a graphic eq or modifying them, then I would pass on these. Spend a little more on something better (sorry, no recommendations).
Really long review: These are my first pair of IEM’s and I quickly discovered that I didn’t like them at all. The upper midrange is very shouty, the ridges on the housing cause extreme discomfort after about 20 minutes, and there were channel imbalance issues with the two pairs I bought. I would rate them 2 stars out of the box. However, after a bit of tinkering, I came up with a few modifications that made these much more enjoyable. I would rate them as a 4 after these changes. The rest of this review will cover these modifications.
First, sanding down the ridges on the housing makes these much more comfortable. I can wear them for long periods of time now. I used a measurement microphone to measure the raw frequency response for these. In the picture posted, the red and blue lines are the left and right channels (respectively) of the 9963’s. The graph looked exactly how these things sounded… terrible. Huge +10db peak at around 4 kHz (most sensitive range to our ears btw), rolled off bass below 200 Hz, and a dip in the upper treble from about 8- 14 kHz. Crash cymbals, female vocals, and electric guitars sound very harsh as a result. This, combined with the anemic bass and channel imbalance, created a very unpleasant listening experience. You can see the channel imbalance between the left and right channels below 1000 Hz.Read more ›
