Because it's in the high end most audiophiles gather. Don't see why sound science would be appropriate.I would have like to seen it under music but you will find very few audiophiles in that section of head-fi
Haha I'm with you.. If I hear Diana Krall or some unintelligible weird jazz one more time on these shows I'm not sure I will fall asleep or go Michael Douglas in Falling Down. It will probably depend on my mood.Do we really want to listen to the same boring crap over and over when auditioning gear because it's convenient or is this some form of masochism for audiophiles? If we don't speak out about the dreadful music choices nothing will change. Maybe I'm in the minority...
I have an almost identical experience regarding K3003 and IE800 as you.The mids and high TWFK driver can't produce natural timbre to my ears. I truly feel this is the biggest edge apart from realistic bass weight and punch a dynamic driver have over balanced armatures, and the IE800s mids are a true testament to this.It's not impossible that a Spiral Ear 5 way could change my mind though.
Yeah fit is personal and the ergonomics straight down don't work at all for my ears. If you really want to wear them over the ear without the cable falling of from top of you ears moving about it's a good idea to make a home made cable slider from pliable cable or a cable tie.
