Ultrasone Edition 8 - Page 134

post #1996 of 2005

Hi there,

 

I'm considering to get ed8. But the biggest problem for me is the sibilance issue I found on many headphones: HD800, T1 etc. So finally I went for LCD3. 

 

Could anyone here please share their impressions on how ed8 perform on sibilance control?

 

Thanks!

i would worry more about if you will like the general signature, sibilance should not be a big problem for edition 8. It is far from sibilant, at least it was for me, but it has a different sound signature than what you would expect, and it is supposed to be on ear. these are more important than sibilance.

 

LCD3 is the least sibilant headphone that exists. Hifiman headphones are not sibilant in general. 

 

If you are very sensitive to sibilance, you might want to stay with LCD and hifiman headphones. Sennheiser hd650 is far from sibilant.

I currently use my UE8 with iPhone 6 + Fiio E12. But Im thinking of upgrading to AK120 + Hugo. Is it worth it? The money is no problem. Just wondering if its worth bothering. I appreciate all answers.

Are there any aftermarket ear pads available for these? My ears are slightly larger than the standard ear pad size for these. Maybe a size bigger than the standard 'ethiopian sheep skin' pads.

You can use a fiio x5 + Hugo. It is cheaper, and you could like the sound of x5II as a transport better.

 

Also, upgrading from fiio e12 to E12A will make your life much better.

Sadly, the pads are too small for most of us and there are no official pads, but you can always try to contact some of the people who make aftermarket pads in general and ask them to make one for your pair. I am pretty sure there are some people who are willing to help.

There are some people who the pads don't work for but don't think I'd say most, more like a few. When I have been at large meets fit has never come up but out of the whole Headfi community it has been brought up before.

For me they are perfect but lately I am getting crackle from the connection of the plug, and it is not a short, more like a grounding issue. I've had it happen on connecting wires before too. When I unplug them and ground the plug with my fingers, it's fine for a while. Also seems worse on some days like dry days. I almost had the plug redone but it doesn't seem to need it. I am ending rarely using them anymore, but I did get years of use already I suppose........humph.

Then I think I have very big ears. 

 

But for me, most headphones are too small, so maybe it is not a universal problem:D

I have some ear issues too. Gotta find what works for you. I have challenges with Iems and compromises sometimes are necessary for me. Kinda suck some times but hopefully you can figure out what you can use.

I'm sure there someone out here who has managed to DIY something that makes these ear-pads comfortably fit slightly longer ears. I would SO go ahead and sell my Ruthenium's and get Romeo's instead for extra portability!
