Niiiice. I've been waiting for those. Hopefully they live up to the expectations. If not, gotta stick with BE's for a looooong time. P.S. By saying "waiting for those" I really mean waiting for eke's impressions/review of those.
what you will find is that bass is different from bass.
I was actually listening to my BE's and stopped by a friend's house (who has the solo HD).
So I said, hmm. Let's listen to these beats shall we?
I couldn't keep them on for more than 30 seconds. So I had to judge them with different songs in 30 second intervals. The quality of sound has that much of a drastic difference.
But since you're more interested in the bass, you'll realize that the beats do not...
I had all at the same time. Bass on XBA-3 does not compare to even the GR07 MKII, not to mention the BE. MH1C definitely has the most bass/subbass but it is slow and the quantity is unnecessary. And thanks for the write up Master Troll (AKA sfwalcer). A mighty fine job. Looking forward to the return of my precious.
honestly good sir, you truly are blessed if you believe the m2 isn't that far from these. As I stated before, my m2's WERE my favorite and what really got me hunting around the iem world (The Brainwavz HM5 and Denon D2K also played a role). I'll just leave it at that and say that presently, the two do not compare. The only thing that is close to being similar (from memory since I got rid of it) is the lower mids of the m2 that make music sound sweet. Everything else?...
