It's only a very high end of the treble spectrum that seems to be there... difficult to describe, but most of the treble is quite nice... it's just this really high thin veil of upper treble that seems to coat everything.
Treble on yours is getting what? You left a word out..... I'm very happy to hear these don't have that obnoxious spike in the 2k-4k range that so many other IEMs I've listened to had. That's a definite plus.. the rest of the mids on these are really nice too. Gives a lot of weight to vocals and guitar.
Just got mine today.
First impressions: The whole presentation seems to be blanketed in a very high treble, which at higher volumes is quite nauseating. Unfortunately, these seem to come to life at higher volumes, and are somewhat dull at lower volumes.
If ever there was a time to believe in burn-in, surely it would be now, because that treble has to go away for me to enjoy these. It's unfortunate, because everything else about them sounds terrific. Some...
They ship overseas, but only offer Bank Deposit or COD.... hmmm...... $152 shipped is quite tempting, though unsure of COD. EDIT: oops, clicked Submit... lol, ah well I'll see how it goes... Expansys HK has em for a good price too, but not in stock ATM: http://www.expansys.com.hk/tdk-ba200-dual-balanced-armature-in-ear-headphones-222804/ They only accept CC or Bank Transfer... dunno why these HK vendors don't accept Paypal.
Yeah, I've found the same thing. WTF. The Monster Turbine Pro Coppers had this and so did the Atrio MG7. I'm crossing my fingers the Yamaha EPH-100 don't. Um, about the cable.... it's a HUGE pain in the ass. It gets twisted and tangled very easily. (you are talking about the 8320 cable, right?) What IEMs are those? Who sells them? Is there a review thread on those yet?
Anyone else notice a spike in the 2k - 4k frequency range? It's really awful for some music.. makes vocals sound thin and blaring. Without EQ, I wouldn't be able to listen to them. Fortunately some music sounds ok with them though on my iPod Nano.
I can't believe some of you actually think these are dark.
Listening to Apparat right now, this is how I have the EQ set... earphones sound really good like this IME (in my ears). :)
