Tyll is going to implement the curve but it will take him a while

Here is the RE400 with that compensation

Yeah the new olive target is supposed more accurately show how one would perceive flatness.

Hey Joker, was looking over your buying guide as I'm trying to get a new set of IEM's before I travel and I'm a fan of the v shape sound signature (I'm a sucker for the fun sounding IEM's).  My favorite IEM of all time was the CKM500, I found it even more fun than the FXT90's, but that driver housing on the CKM500's was not designed for small ears at all leaving me in pain after 30+ minutes of use.

 

What would you recommend for someone who is a fan of the CKM500 sound?

 

Thanks.

Is there a different Olive-Welti curve for IEMs vs over-ears?

Nope

Ah, but the HRTF of the dummy head itself is different for different kinds of phones. *Smacks head*

The HRTF is constant on the Head, but the interaction due to placement is tricky. It's why Rin and Tyll have to make different measurements and get an average for over the ears

Hi all, 

I have some contact  problem with my RE400 jack plug. Sent an email just now, I'm waiting for Head-Directs answer.

Anybody same problem?

I am using your thread to find and add some IEMs to http://www.head-fi.org/t/670395/the-new-v-shaped-club, will credit you as list builder

 

btw, do you think the FXT90s belong to entry-level or mid-fi IEMs?

I honestly don't know of anything v-shaped, with as much mid-bass as the CKM500, that wouldn't also have larger (or equally large) housings. If the JVC FX500 was still in production that may have been an option (it's not as large as the FX700) but I think it's been discontinued.

Joker, do you know the Brainwavz M4? What do you think of it? I was shure it was measured and ranked, though it's not apparently. Today it's on heavy sale at MP4Nation ($29 instead of $69), isn't it a bang for the buck?

Thanks, I see a few places where I can still get them so I'll have to check them out.  JVC's have always fit my ears perfectly.  The FXT90's were always a pleasure to wear, just always wished those had a bit more in the bass department.
