NE800M

“The Nuforce NE800M from Optoma is clearly one of the best all-round in-ears. They offer a convincing sound as well as an attractive design, good carrying comfort and a neat delivery – no matter what kind of music you are listening to, or whether you use them for an audio book or movie. The NE800M is superbly tuned and shines through powerful base, a warm midrange and gentle highs.”

Optoma NuForce NE750M and NE800M Review

By Leslie Shapiro • Posted: Sep 7, 2015

When Optoma, a home-theater projector company, and NuForce, an audio company joined forces, I’ll admit it I was initially confused. NuForce made nice, niche audio products, and Optoma is mainly only doing projectors. What would their combined efforts produce? Light-emitting earbuds? Projectors with built-in speakers? But it actually makes sense; Optoma purchased NuForce to be able to provide both excellent video and audio to consumers, and they’ve kept the high quality that you would expect from NuForce. How do two new pairs of earphones, the NE750M and the NE800M from Optoma NuForce sound? Let’s find out. ……

“These advanced in-ear headphones are made from brass and carbon fibre. They also have an ultra-wide band driver, like a steampunk F1 car piloted by Nigel Mansell.  Unlike an F1 car, they offer a comfortable ride thanks to foam and silicone ear tips.”

“I was perfectly happy with the fit and feel of the silicon tips fitted when the earbuds arrived, I did try the isolation plus tips which fit easily to the earbuds in place of the silicon ones, they certainly did reduce traffic noise to such a degree that I was hearing my own feet through my body and to my mind these may even be a traffic hazard when walking or cycling.”

“often when ears are stuffed there is a reaction from the ear and it swells making even something like the bud seem as if it is swelling.  I did not suffer from this even when I had the buds in for several hours.”

“My tests with speakers, headphones and earbuds are all fairly similar, a good chunk of my favourite music and some with a good range of sounds both in the higher and lower bands as well as noting separation of instruments. These earbuds gave good range and enough bass and the separation was good.  In this case I also used them to clearly hear dialog in a couple of US films that I normally struggle to get clarity especially in the female speaking – muttering – voice.”
