As a casual audiophile and gamer, I'm wondering if it's possible to connect a headphone (fidelio x2) with a mod-mic to the WA7 and be able to use the inline mic?
Also any gamers have experience using this amp while in game?
I've tried the JVC spiral dots and while they are better than the stock tips, there's still some sibilance. I was a bit annoyed at the sibilance too and the very forward sound signature. After experimenting with all the tips and inserts/spacers, I found that the foam tips with no spacers are best.
Also, after using the IEMs for a few days the sibilance definitely eased up a whole lot. The comply foam is pretty much the same thing as the stock foam tips that come with the...
I've had the DUNU 1000 for a month now and tried with all the stock tips as well as the JVC tips earfonia recommended. Just a short impression of specifically the spacer rings and tips.
Colored Spacer Rings: I've noticed that adding the spacers emphasizes both the lows and highs. Silver rings were fine but once I got to the Blue and Red rings, while the bass punch was good, the highs became too harsh and sibilant for me.
Tips: I've decided to stick with the stock...
Great reviews! Question though....any insights for comparison between the CKR9 and IM03?And how would they compare to MTPC? I have the MTPC and tf10 and for me the tf10 is lacking a bit of bass and can get tiring after a while where as MTPC has good bass extension but is not as clear as the tf10.
Audio Technica's new CKR and IM series seem to be getting a lot of praise. Namely the stars seem to be CKR9 and IM-03.
Has anyone had a chance to compare these two and what are your impressions?
ES-10 has nice punch to the bass and extends really low, but only when the music calls for them. It's not bassy and loose like some headphones out there, but clear and tight. I would say the ES-10 is more well balanced with lush sounds in all frequencies. I just thought the ESW-9 bass was a bit sloppy and muffled the other sounds because of this, hence I didn't get it. Personally, I think the ES-10 is a clearer sounding ESW-9 which is great for all types of music...
ES-10 for $150 is fake 100%. When it's selling in Japan wholesellers for a little over ¥20,000 there is no way with currency conversion for it be to under $200, even used. I bought mine on accessoryjack for $400 and definitely think they are worth the price. Imagine a more balanced, better sounding M50 in the housing of an ESW9. Most stores are going to sell them for $380-400 because of currency conversion plus premium for importing them from Japan. If you can...
