Thanks, and no problem! I haven't heard the Fidue A83 yet (hopefully this week though), but what I'm hoping for is more intensity/presence in the mids compared to the DN2KJ. The way I hear the DN2KJ with my OBJECTIVE DAC/AMP (which I believe are neutral) are mids that are too smooth and a tad too recessed for my taste and a treble that is too intense and somewhat sibilant, especially at what I consider to be normal volumes and of course louder volumes (I know, it's not...
I sometimes use my iPhone 5S with regular MP3s and I think it sounds wonderful, lol! Anyway, I prefer my OBJECTIVE DAC/AMP, and my FiiO X3 2nd gen DAP with FLACs, but I certainly wouldn't bet my life I could tell the difference at any given time. Anyway, my advice for anyone who doesn't want to spend a fortune and still want to get some seriously great sound is to use your phone and save your money for headphones/IEMs where the real differences are. I personally find the...
Brooko, you confuse me! Do you or don't you consider the DN-2000J to be v-shaped? Here you seem to be suggesting that both the DN-2000J and the Fidue A83 are v-shaped, no? Yet, in this post you said: "Now anyone suggesting the DN-2000J is V shaped, or has recessed mids really needs to go back and listen again." Now "anyone" includes me and I suppose you based that statement on your listening experience and not on the graph you presented in that post, no? In his review...
x2 - That would be enormously interesting! 
FWIW that graph looks definitely more like how I hear the DN2KJ, and since it looks V-shaped and since that is how I actually hear the DN2KJ I'm personally inclined to believe the above graph is the more accurate (wonder if the same source has a graph for the Fidue A83)  And thanks to shotgunshane (commander Taggart) for coming to my (Brandon's) rescue! - Taggart: It's all real!-Brandon: OMG, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! 
The truth of the matter is that the DN2KJ sounds somewhat recessed in the mids and slightly too intense in the treble, to me. I could choose to refrain from such non-scientific wordings and instead present a more clinical description, but what I’m trying to do is convey my personal perception of what I feel is the DN2KJ’s less strong feats. It isn’t recessed and/or too treble hot from the science of its FR graph. It's simply how it's perceived by me. The reason could be...
I'm afraid I haven't heard any of the headphones you mention so I'm afraid I probably can't be of much help. My only full size over ear headphone was the Sennheiser HD 650 (now sold) but as I remember it vocals on it were definitely more palpable and engaging than that of the 2KJ. I'd use it for example to listen to Paul McCartney's intense voice in "Wild Life", to really get to feel what his throat must have felt like when singing it. Overall however, the HD 650 was too...
Thank you for the comparing graphs! Looking at the graphs it seems obvious we can’t claim any of these two phones to be V-shaped. I agree!During my years on Head-Fi I’ve come to divide the community into two basic factions; those with a predominantly scientific approach and those with a predominantly artistic approach.When I listen to the 2KJ I feel like it’s been conceived from a predominantly scientific approach. However, its mid-range isn’t prominent enough for my...
Thanks for sharing! However, I don't quite understand your post or maybe I simply misread it. As I read your post you are "more of a treble-head and bass-head" and you even "dislike reference". In my book then you should go well with a V-shaped signature. You describe the A83 as V-shaped (recessed mids, very present treble, prominent bass) and then say you don't enjoy listening to them. You even seem to prefer the "more reference" W30. Please bear with me, but I just don't...
Yep!  Anyway, the agony is over as I've now placed my order with Lend Me UR ears for a grad total of USD 287.13. It's definitely a more than decent deal as it includes DHL EXPRESS SHIPPING to Europe, Sweden with a delivery time of 3 - 4 working days. The wait begins...
