Balanced armature vs dynamic - Page 4

post #46 of 49
Hmm well each has their advantages; balanced armatures being that they are faster and have less distortion... and can better replicate sounds (depending on stuff obviously). But... ionno; I have BA and DD IEMs and it depends on what you want out of your setup I guess.

Sounds good , but in my humble opinion with a dynamic earphone i can not only hear bass but I can really feel it! I have and triad many of the top models and the armatures are very clear but no matter hom many little suckers they stuff in there I cant feel the bass.

i would love a company to release a multiple dynamic driver IEM as it would be brilliant to see how it compares to multi armature phones but for now i think multi armatures are simply a more advanced technology and the use of multiple drivers generally results in lower distortion rates and clearer sound.

if you want to know a bit more about how an armature works then check this out.

and ofcourse scroll down to driver types.

I have two Westones (2 and 3). They are ok but not that clear and bass is ok but nowhere as good as the Future Sonics!  IE8 are not as good as the Future Sonics either and the IE8 meds and highs are foggy.

thanks ^ ^ I really have to listen to IE8 to know what they are...and I just ordered one...I don't understand, IE8 is been there for sometime now, much longer than W3 and just recently theres so much hype about it for some reason...
