Thanks again for sharing! This is something I would definitely do if it were offered outside of Japan, or if I were headed over there.
Brannan's shoes are special therapeutic devices! He needs them due to a tragic accident from his triceps dips competition days.In other news, I'm looking forward to the Katana!
Dynamic drivers tend to be better and often much better at timbre than multi-ba designs. Could you specify what you mean by "unrealistic timbre" in this case?
The t8ie mkii wasn't out weeks ago, it's been available literally two weeks. You may have tried the mki previously. Thanks to several head-fiers, we know now for sure that the mkii is either better, worse or the same as the mki. Par for the course, more ears will lead to a consensus eventually.
Ha, awesome, PeterHyatt was right. Good info, thanks.
Wow, that's very different than other impressions of the mkii!
Well, just look up Equal Loudness Contours to get a first hint that the human ear/auditory system isn't "neutral" at all! There's a lot to it, our outer ear helps bring certain frequencies up and then there are resonances in the ear canal. When you plug the ear canal with an earphone, there's a lot that has to be compensated for and there are various new resonances which aren't even quite the same for everyone. But yeah, the old "audiophile" flat sound tends to be far from...
FullCircle is completely correct. I just wanted to add that the best audiologists (and you can ask for this) will check your ear canal as you open and close your mouth to see how the canal is affected. Some people's ear canals change with open mouth, some don't! I've owned 12 ciems and I get the best fit when impressions are made using a bite block for a relaxed jaw with open mouth, but that's just me.   The K10 has two of the biggest bass armature drivers there are,...
Hmm, I've compared new dynamic driver iems with the same model burned in and there are audible differences, but these are often minor. If the t8ie mkii really does have a different voice coil, I'd expect a difference, just that here you found that it is worse than the mki. That's super helpful, I don't think if it already had a week of playtime that it is going to improve, but, of course, if you do later comparisons, that'll be welcome, too. I was waiting until your...
Well, that's a disappointment! Less clean than the mki is a no-go for me. Too bad. But, thanks for the impressions! You may have just saved me a $1,000!
