LIke this?
ALAC > Ipod Touch 4th > E11 > bass setting 1 > K550

I've recently sold my Klipsch S4i's, Sony XBA-1's, Soul L99 by Ludacris, and V-Moda Vibratos..due to my purchasing the UE Tri-fi 10's (still waiting for them to arrive via UPS). So my list has diminished significantly...but here's my list of IEM's ranked...

 

1) Meelectronic A151

2) AKG Q350

3) UE 500

4) Monoprice 8320

5) Altec Lansing Ultra 606

6) Sennheiser CX300II

7) V-Moda Bass Freq Metal

What is the rationale for ranking like this? It is of course correct, but based on what? Classical music? Dubstep? 

 

The music genre is more significant than the equipment feeding it.

Not that series - Just having a little fun.   Like if you had to pick 1 - 5 all else aside, which ones would it be?

 

Or if there was a fire in the house and you had the chance to grab 1 headphone - which one would it be - type of question.

No problem.

 

Classical (e.g. Mariann Thorsen & Trondheimsolistene)

 

 

1) HD800

2) HE-6

3) LCD-3

 

Country (e.g. Josh Turner, Jamey Johnson)

 

 

 

 

 

1) LCD-2

2) LCD-3

3) HE-500

 

... and so on

Would you say there's to much bass in the LCD-3 for Classical?

subscribed.

No ranking from me since i only have beyer T1's.
post #2412 of 4364

He, he. Tricky question. cool.gif

 

No - I would say the two others convey a "brighter" sounds signature that fits subject genre better. Others may feel different and that's OK of course. Having said that, classical is not my favorite genre - nor is country. But, I listen to these genres and enjoy it in between other preferences of music.
