This after having 11 on hand as recently as a week ago.................

Yet another adjustment -



HE-400 - yes, fed from speaker taps like my HE-6 with the exact same mods (open grill, Vegan pads, Lohb's suspension headband mod) they are very close to the HE-6




Phillips X1

Ultrasone Performance 840 - with the Cayin S5 driving, it's the best portable basshead combo I've tried yet

ooh, ok. so:


1. Beyerdynamic DT-880 (i've had these for like a day but they are so much more comfortable and sound better than anything else i've had)

2. Grado SR80i (really good sound, but they are really poorly built..)

3. ATH-M50 (sound degraded really fast for some reason...)

4. Sony MDR-7506 (i hated these. idk why, since everyone else loved them, but they were so tinny and crap sounding to me)


also earbuds, for the heck of it:


1. AKG Q350 (really good sounding for earbuds. nice, heavy bass, and great sound isolation. exactly what i want while on the bus and stuff.)

2. new apple earbuds (sound pretty OK, actually. not terrible.)

3. old apple earbuds (kill me please. god they are so bad)

2. Narmoo S1. Bass is perfect though treble can be a bit much with some genres.

3. CoreCool V2. I like the build and detachable cables but the bass is bloated and treble is rolled off too much. Doesn't sound right with tips that decrease bass. It does sound better with the Fiio X1 than the DX50 though.

4. Brainwavz R3. Very wide soundstage but lacks the bass that the TTPOD T1 has.

Another dual driver IEM arrived soooo....

2. Narmoo S1
3. GranVela VJJB V1. Vertical drivers like the T1,which I like because of the fit and comfort. Look and build is good. Sounds similar to the CoreCool V2 but with bass that is not as bloated. Good value for $26.
4. CoolCore V2
5. Brainwavz R3
