Could be. I am not bashing measurements at all - with the right compensation I think they can be very useful to those who are able to interpret them properly.
Ok. I'm currently using FX700 EQing with treble boost with +2dB 4kHz, +5dB 8kHz and 16kHz. Without EQ, it's sounds a bit muffled. I can imagine it people would like this kind of signature when they listen to rock but that's not how I like it though. I want more treble.
I thought the black filter of PFE 232 boost treble and bass while lessens midrange a bit?
So PFE 232 has more treble than K3003 with High Boost filter right?
I'll listen the bass myself once I get it. I'm pretty sure it's my first BA earphone.
The effect of the black filter on treble energy with the PFE232 is pretty mild in my experience. The K3003 has a lot of treble but it's not as hot as that of the 232.
Maybe but it's only slightly bassier than the R-50 but still doesn't have the deep bass power of the GR07.
DBA-02 mkII is quite risky. My experience with these TWFKs was quite negative - for the price they're great, just not what I was looking for at all. Mostly due to that 4.5k ringing.
GR07 is a far safer choice with some 6k ringing, much less noticeable to my ear than TWFK's.
This was not my experience with the DBA-02 mkII. I find it to be less bright than some of my other TWFKs (e.g. CK10, UE700, Phiaton PS200, and even stock R-50) and don't think it's fatiguing at reasonable volumes. The GR07 bothers me more.
The R-50 with added impedance and triple-flange tips and the VSonic GR01 are also contenders for least annoying TWFK treble.
also dislike the mids on the um3x?
Not quite sure what it is maybe they were to thick/warm sounding. I'm currently using ba200's and mtpg's and like the mids
on these, especially the ba200. But they also have warm mids so I can't really place what I dislike about the w3/x10.
I am sending back my w3's and need to choose something else and from reviews it seems that the um3x is possibly
a good upgrade from the ba200, but I was worried the mids would be similar to the w3 or x10 in tone. So should should I
get the um3x or should I look at something else (shure or phonak)?
If you're worried about the thick/warm-sounding mids I would give the UM3X a pass. However, I didn't find the W3 to be particularly thick-sounding. On second thought, I think the W3 and X10 both lack the fluid presentation of the MTPG, which may be what's bothering you. I haven't tried the BA200 to confirm that that has the same characteristic. If that is indeed the case you may enjoy the Shure SE535 or something like a HiFiMan RE262/RE272 for the clean, liquid mids without heavy bass.
hello head-fi masters I'm a newbi here
I was going to buy my first ever IEM and im such an idiot in this kind of line.
I was gonna ask what to buy with my budget of 50-150$ also if possible could anyone direct me where audioshop i can avail it.
Im from the Philippines.
Really depends on what you're looking for in terms of sound and other characteristics. Some solid options for a beginner might be the Yamaha EPH-100 JVC FXT90, Shure SE215, HiSoundAudio Crystal, or Dunu Tai Chi. Those are warmer-sounding earphones with slightly enhanced bass and should be beginner-friendly.
