Either one, both are known to work. I'd just get the T-400.

The biggest difference between the V1 and V2 is the bass. The V2 have a lot more bass than the V1. If you switch between the two on the same song, you'll feel the V1 isn't that bassy heh.

V2 also have slightly better treble than the V1. Rides, Hi Hats, cymbals and snare sounded slightly better on V2.

For me vocal sounded about the same. But the bass in V2 overpower the vocal a bit.

Just my 2 cents.


Do you mean the V1 has more bass than the V2? To my ears the V2 is certainly less bassy than the V1. There is a slight reduction in sub-bass, but the main change seems to be the reduction of the mid-bass hump that made the V1 sound a bit bloated at times.

I think the change is for the better. With the old Eterna, you pretty much had to be a basshead to like it. The new version takes it out of the niche a bit, making it something that a non-basshead would be more likely to like than the V1. It's still a bassy IEM and the general sound signature/balance of the old one is still present, it's just not so blatantly bassy anymore.

My V2 isn't yet fully burned in but I can't possibly see it taking a full swing and becoming more bassy than the V1. Please do share your thoughts. Was the V2 you auditioned burned in?

post #377 of 468

The Eterna probably have around 30 hours. Not yet fully burned in. V2 definitely much more bassier to me ears, my source is Fiio E7 on bass boost level 0. I'm using UE double-flange tips.

i've tried the V2 also and find it that the bass are more lacking than the V1, yet better treble extension.

but i wonder why for me who just auditioned a W3/UM3X find it almost the same character... i mean even the eterna are lacking in most part but i found it quite the same it just the W3/UM3X have better aspect in all section.

Weird, maybe I should go and try it again on different tips. 

post #381 of 468

I guess I should chime in since there is surprisingly little info on the v2. A friend lent me his v2 to compare with my v1. I gave up deciding which one is better than the other after one hour. They sound similar, exactly like they are derived from one same driver just tuned a little differently. The v2 has less midbass than the v1, which is actually better for some music. Other parts of the frequency range like treble, sub-bass comes out slightly more on the v2(more a side-effect of the reduction in midbass). 

 

If both the v1 and v2 are available today, I will probably opt for the v2, though I'll be happy with either. 

post #382 of 468

Yeah I got my v2 in the mail this week. I'm pretty happy with them, although I have no good IEM around to compare them to. They satisfy someone who was moving from Denon Ah-D1001 closed phones for portability.

post #383 of 468

Just ordered a set of Eterna V1 and the Icons.  Just found out of this site.  Can't wait to try them out.  Such a hard decision between the V1 and V2, but I got the V1 since there will be no more.

post #384 of 468

^ me as well

 

its a pride thing, something i can boast about perhaps later on here on head fi lol for having the v1

 

post #385 of 468

I would like to get my hands (or ears) on the  Eterna V1's but cannot find them anywhere - those of you who got them recently - would you mind sharing where you got them from?

Rawster has a pair for sale.  Check the for sale section and look for it.

i ordered my dba02 from him/them. got them in 10 days (2 months delay in shipping not withstanding smily_headphones1.gif)

post #389 of 468

They arrived today, after 8 days (+4 before getting shipped by Audiobase). I'm picking them up later tonight. Can't wait!

 

Edit: I've hooked them up to the Maverick tubeamp and I'm very impressed. I never expected this quality sound from IEMs.

It definately is warm and bassy and the highs are great, the mids are a bit less pronounced atm but with burn in I'm sure this will all change a little.

 

Anayway, I'm very happy with the sound. Thanks again for recommending them to me!! smile.gif
