The NE-7M has about 3/4 of the bass of the Bose but tighter and less bloated. Better mid tones than all of the above phones, and clearer non-sibilent highs than the above phones. It's signature is full with only a very mild weakness in the mids (compared to MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE IEM's). If you like more bass than "neutral" sounding phones it is simply one of the best deals on the market.
The cabling and the phones are also of excellent build quality with minimal microphonics in the cable (none from the cable being rubbed), if you loop the cable over your ear you will eliminate the little bit of microphonics that do exist. I also find the cable light and with just enough stiffness to help make them less tangling.
These phones are also very easily driven by Ipods and small devices. I am using a 2nd Gen Ipod Touch and have never cranked the volume over 1/2 way and usually listen between 1/4 to 1/3 volume and still have nice bass response.
I got these for my girlfriend a couple of weeks ago because her Shure E2cs' wire is cracked and she wanted something with a mic to use with her iPhone. I had read lots of very positive reviews on other sites that claimed the NE-7Ms were superior to other IEMs (in-ear monitors, aka earphones) two or three times the cost.
But the problems have been many. First off, the fit is odd, both for me and my girlfriend. The phones stick out oddly far for a pair of IEMs, especially compared to the E2cs and my NuForce NE-8s (which, by the by, I love). This wouldn't be so bad except that 1) the weight of the cord makes it feel as though the phones are going to fall out (even though they never have), and 2) they can't be looped over the ears; which brings me to my next point...
Microphonics. You know that rubbing, rustling noise you hear with IEMs when you rub or bump the cord? It's especially present using the stock silicone tips, distractingly so. I know some people say you can loop the cord over your ears to reduce microphonics to great effect, but I couldn't keep the darn cables over my ears since they (the IEMs, not my ears) stick out so far. Aargh! Switching to the foam tips from the E2cs solved the problem to some degree, but it's still there.Read more ›
I was already very, very happy with my NuForce Icon, paired with the NuForce S-1 Speaker, so taking a chance with NuForce again wasn't that big of a deal...sure, I could have always returned them, but it was nice to know that even if I loved them, I wouldn't be out a lot of money.
I received the NE-7M very recently and have been loving them...they provide a clear, open sound, just as I've come to expect from NuForce. Its possible that some other earphones would give "more" bass, but at the expense of overall clarity and balance. It took some trial-and-error with the included ear-tips to get the best fit...I settled on the 2nd smallest. Not only did they fit the best, but they also provided the best sound isolation and bass response...this was immediately noticeable when comparing them directly. With the other tips, the bass was lacking...once I got the right fit, it came out with a vengeance.Read more ›
I was hesitant at first because I've never heard of Nuforce, but for $50, these things can be beat for sound and functionality. I've had the new Apple dual driver IEMs and Denon C551s and I feel that the Nuforce beats them both, especially in the lower end.
When the sound calls for you to feel the music, they definitely make their presence felt! There is also little distortion on the low end of the Nuforces which makes listening to the bass that much more pleasurable. I'm listening to the songs I know well and can't believe the impact they are having!I feel that the sound stage is also wider. The mids and highs are smooth and provide a separation of instruments which give these earphones a very warm and natural sound.
The integrated mic and controls are convenient as well. I'm able to take calls on my iPhone 3G and use Skype on my Macbook. There is a button to control playback of music and answer/reject calls.
Purchase these and you will not be disappointed.
