As much as I've liked the IEMs I've owned, they've never measured up with my full-sizers in any way. My W3 and AH-C400 are great as far as casual listening goes, but I'd prefer my MD or HD650 to either of them at home. Maybe customs would change that...

No I have not. I wanted to buy one a while ago but I have held off because of the reports that say their treble is harsh. I've found that poor treble is a dealbreaker for me ever since I got the Z7.

 

 

The measurements suggest this as well. It hurts just to LOOK at that 5kHz peak. However, the rest of it is quite clean, so I'd like to at least try it at one point.

...absolutely incredible.

Of course it SOUNDS bad, just LOOK at it!!

Of course this tastes bad, just LOOK at what is in it! Oh... no ive never tasted it. but just LOOK!

I'm interested in a custom aswell but doesn't feel worth spending them money atm.

At the same price, I've found that IEMs are better than full-sizers, but I'm listening straight out of my laptop and I haven't tried top tier headphones.  Maybe amps are needed or higher tier headphones are needed to beat my IEMs.

It goes both ways, but if what you hear is confirmed by measurements, then it is evidence that what you hear and your interpretation are likely correct.

But placebo works both ways, and your preconceptions of how a headphone should sound might very well influence your perception. Might be measurements, reviews, just the way they look, anything.

Also, have to be careful about interpreting the graphs correctly, which is critical. and lastly, you should look at the data and draw your conclusion from it, and not start with a conclusion and look for data which supports it.

1) AKG K551 - very comfortable and a sound that suits my listening taste, does sound better from my cMoy.

2) Klipsh X11i - still new to me and very close in performance to the 551, prefer the 551 but X11 are my travel choice sounds Ok from portables, use it with Comply T100s on a plane but this makes the presentation too dark for my normal listening tastes so the single dome silicons sit on there most of the time, my amp is away so not sure how much difference an amp makes

3) Allesandro MS1 - one of my oldest HPs still love it but open backs do not suit my listening habits/environment, also prefers amplification.

4) Shure E2 - up until recently my travel HP, surpassed by some margin by the first 2 on the list, find it tiring when listening for long periods especially on cmoy.

 

Have lots of disposable buds, sport headphones and bits but nothing worth mention.

Didn't akg k812 measure quite "badly" for example? People still seems to enjoy it and some people says it's the best dynamic headphone.

Yes it did measure poorly but I haven't heard many people who enjoy it or have it in their signature.

post #3929 of 5607

Revised my order.

 

  1. VK-1
  2. HD424
  3. Sportapro
  4. Q40

 

I just discovered the joys of low-level listening with the HD424.

Sell everything you own now and buy them. 

 

I am ready to declare the TH900 to be the greatest hp on the planet.  And no, I have not heard them all, but I don't care.....  if that makes any sense :beyersmile:
