Did we need an Amp for the HEM8 ? If yes, Any recommendation ?
Which one would you prefer, HEM6 or HEM8 and why? I had a pair of HEM6 and replaced it with UE900s and I'd like to know if HEM8 is any different than HEM6 and how far.
can anyone give a comparison of these to the shure 315
Teethplus
I have a set of the Shure 315's I bought about a month ago. These are my first IEM's I have owned. I just joined this drop as I feel they might be a bit better than the 315's. If you don't buy this time, I will give you a comparison of the two after the HEM8's arrive.
Has anyone used these in a live environment? i.e. on-stage, with drums and cymbals pummeling at you, front of house, and crowd noise?
Personally of all the IEM I have tried these are my favorite. I haven’t tried any campfire is or anything like that, but “especially“ the HEM8 4 $200 if you don’t have IEM of this caliber your stupid not to purchase these. If not just add to your collection, they are that good of a deal.

I joined even after 2 years of using the 535s from Shure. Just wanted to try something else.
All right... HEM8 now $200. It happens when you make weird connectors so that nobody can make cable for this. Ultimately your sales are hurt, so manufacturers plz stick to standard connectors. MD dropped these a couple of times. It looks like they combined comments, but not reviews. My review is gone. These are picky. iPhone sounds good with these, but I still don't fully understand why the sound is muddied with bass by using some amps. I just cannot find a cable to improve these. That's why they deserve a 60% off.

I like the straightforward analysis of using "weird" connectors. :-) But no, that´s not the reason why MD sell under $200. This is just a crazy promo when we move towards Holiday season. -Jyri/NuForce
Vs the 1more quad driver? Can anyone compare the sound?
I got mine last week and like them so far! They sounds great, but as other users have expressed, they lack and real low end. If youre looking for a full range sound, I would suggest looking elsewhere. The fit seems pretty good as well. Im having to get used to using IEMs like this, as I’ve never been a huge fan, but these aren’t bad at all. As far as packaging goes, my box came damaged, but I attribute that to fedex, who ended up giving my box an extra trip out of state..... the accessories all seem to work well at the moment. I’ll comment back fine I have problems!
Comparison between HEM8 and Shure SE846?

Wtf is a noble u10? Sounds like a bastard child born of an unholy union between audio64 and noble

I think maybe, I'm not sure but would take a wild guess...Noble Kaiser (Shoze) 10 Universal Aluminum Massdrop edition was the one worth marry into.
FiiO Fh5 is by far a better buy. Save your money if you plan on getting the HEM8 and get the Fiio Fh5. They got the bass these lack and the mids/highs you still need.
TacoHerder
harsh, recessed mids, boomy bass... fh5 is good in his 50 euro price point
WOW look at those accessories!!! Although after careful consideration I will be stearing clear. If you check the reviews on amazon and google there are tons of people having horrible issues with Hem6 & Hem8. I was going to order Hem8 today but after seeing so many reviews where buyers have driver failure on these iem within one month ofpurchase, cable problems and so much more. I decided to not buy this. Great accessories though but I doubt the quality is there. Plus, hearing how bad is the customers service isnt helping either. You would spend almost $300 and fifity fiifty chance that you could end up with failed product, no way.

I bought the HEM8 on Amazon and had an issue with the cable (no issues with the drivers yet). NuForce was very communicative and offered to send me a new pair. They ended up sending me a new cable at my request. Pretty good customer service IMO. I can't speak for those other customers. Also, if NuForce doesn't honor a Massdrop purchase as legitimate, Massdrop has been really good as well with customer service, replacing full headphones that I had issues with. I think you'd be safe buying these.
Does anyone know how I get support / RMA on these? Got the hem8 in the last drop and the right phone has some distortion/rattle primarily on low frequency. I have used them for 60ish hours on multiple devices, DACs, amps DAC/amp combo, phone, onboard sound. I have also tried all kinds of sound formats and quality. Contacted optoma support over 2 weeks ago via the online form with no reply ...

You might need to keep emailing them, maybe check your spam email for a response. I had a good experience dealing with them. Or call them: Customer Service 510-897-8600 1-888-289-6786 (6am – 5pm PST)
Can anyone comment how these compare to Primo 8 and EDC3?
Why does the URL say HEM8?
Plz any one tell me which is better nuforce hem6 or ue900s
Riya51
Had both of them, kept UE900S. It sounds more neutral, however the fit (therefore the isolation) and the cables of HEM6 were better. Even though I like the MMCX , two pin connection feels much safer. Both of them have great accessories however the carrying case of UE900S is a joke, so I bought the older version. Both of them are great actually. HEM6 is better if you like to listen to more bass heavy songs. Don't get me wrong, it's only relatively bass heavy. UE900S is on the other side more detailed and feels wonderful to listen classical or acoustic.
Just a side note: If the color is not an issue, check the HEM2. Even though it just a single BA driver, it sounds perfectly fine, especially considering its price. Not to mention that you get all the goodies in the box, just like HEM6 or HEM8.
Not many purchases... seem like a bad buy?
BigFur
I’ve heard these are VERY good, especially For the price. There were just a ton of IEMs on here at once. Several NuForce even. It was bad of MASSDROP to “drop” them all at once.
BigFur
Be very careful with how to drive HEM8. Some devices will give you dirty sound. My guess is that you need an amp with very small output impedance (<1 ohm). So it can be a bad buy for some people.
4 balanced armatures for commit at 279$? Yes please.

I honestly feel like this is one of the rare deals I’ve had on this site. When I purchased those for the price I did, lower than the price you’re being offered now, they were close to $500 on Amazon at their lowest. And honestly they sound really good. I do not like bright headphones I don’t like bright earphones. I like a little bass and that doesn’t mean it’s not audio file. Audio file just means what’s sounds good within 0 to 50,000 kHz or some shit and sounds good to you with good quality components. Bass to m audio file as shit and D’s for just over $200, for bass in mid heavy for balance Armature drivers were a good deal and I recommend them to anyone.
WILLxLOVE
That's "audiophile." One word. An audio file is something on your PC. Sorry, but using a wrong (and ludicrously wrong) usage multiple times made my head ache. (If English is not your first language, I apologize. But from reading your posts, it sounds to me like it unfortunately is.)
I might just ask directly through Nuforce support but anyways.... since the cable connection of this HEM series is so unique, do you plan to release balanced cables? I think my HEM8 would deserve a 2,5mm TRRS OFC cable :)
Can any one tell nufore primo 8 and hm8 which one is better

Hoho
Dude they are here. The commit is 279$ with 7 buyers. No clue why other ones on this site are getting sold these aren’t
WILLxLOVE
Yup, I got mine from the last drop, Matt T was able to add a few more HEM8s to the last drop and I managed to snag some back then! :) I love the HEM8s, great to pair with my FiiO X7 along with the FiiO E12 Mont Blanc amp.
So many NuForce drops In such short time
I thought and searched today for HEM8 and at the same day Massdrop activates this drop :) However the timing is not the best, since I need to save right now :/ It'll be active again later I hope. I've uDac 3 and BE6i from Nuforce and I'm totally satisfied with both of them, so I guess the HEM8 would also would be great. I'd like to read more user experience from the community though.
Just FYI, never heard these but in terms of other similar IEMS with 3 balanced armature drivers....isn't the Massdrop NuForce EDC3 also have 3 balanced armature drivers for $99? Also, fyi, the Brainwavz B400 has 4 balanced armatures for about $190. Again, never heard the NuForce HEM6 or HEM8's but I do own the Brainwavz B400 and the mids on these are amazing. If you like vocals, the B400 are worth a serious look.

Honestly, not impressed with the EDC 3
WILLxLOVE
All a matter of taste I guess. I like them plenty.
Have a pair of HEM6 for sale (like new, aside from the eartips I've used, of course) for $220 if anyone is interested. Includes US shipping.
Hi, in case I wanted to replace the cable for another with 2.5mm balanced termination, does anybody know the exact measure for the 2-pin plug with goes to the IEMs? I read somewhere it's 0.77mm whereas other comments point at 0.78mm instead, like that for the Westone brand. Just wondering.

Thanks HifiHero!
Wouldn't sand paper remove the layer which protects the pins from corrosion? I'm curious.
