Congrats on the 300th review. Looking forward to the 500th!
Hope you will add Philips S1 and S2 soon.
Mostly the massive scoop out from 2-8KHz. I find it overly warm and lacking in definition and air. Kind of like an early LCD-2 Rev1 on an already warm rig.
Measurements wise the interesting ones all seem to be duals DBA-02, W2, UE700 etc. Don't know however if measurements and actual presentation match. Also odd that the universal $300+ market is full of wildly inaccurate iems :(
Well, the DBA-02 and UE700 are definitely brighter than the LCD2. Measurements are tricky when it comes to treble. For example with the compensation InnerFidelity uses, earphones that are more or less flat in the treble, such as the Audio-Technica CKM500, tend to sound overly edgy and unrefined while those with a sculpted response (e.g. HiFiMan RE272) can sound pretty good.
I've tried stretching the Comply cores before but they were tough so bravely I gave up. Glad you managed!
Thank you all .
The Philips S1 and S2 will be added before the 500th
XBA H1 are on sale for Rs.6990 (6500 on ebay). Many impressed people over on the dedicated thread.
" indian prices are supposed to be lower , if lunched . " sorry , its lunched . will we get the h3 or h2 !!! i will bag one in a month at least .
You should definitely give it a try at least!
If you're in Montreal sometime before the holidays, you can try mine. After that, I may only have the JH Roxanne
Wonder how different the headphone market will be in 2027 when that happens
There'll be just one IEM model and everybody will have tunable ears!
Congrats on this unbelievable milestone ljokerl .
joker, have you ever heard the SA7? I'm wondering what you think of them. I decided to pick one up as I've never owned a Sleek Audio iem and price wasn't too bad as they have a sale right now.
This quest is pretty much about finding an alternative to the JH13fp. Once I approach that price point... no point stay universal. ;)
Sorry, never heard any Sleek stuff except the SA1.
I can live with that
I guess if you normally use the smallest tips with any other earphone and get a better seal than with, say, a medium, you have narrow ear canals.
Hey, got one last question. I know I said I wanted an IEM for under $50 but at this point I just want something like the FXT90 but with a bit more bass/subbass. I listen to R&B and Hip-Hop mostly with a good amount of Rock and Pop thrown in as well. The M11s that I have just are not cutting it, the music is not as immersive anymore lol.
Thanks a lot!
