Another problem is the bass is too light and loose.

Is there any IEM has good detail, sound stagestage and separation like in DBA02-MKII but has tight and deep base with less fatigue treble?

You can try Dunu DN-1000.

Does this thread look messed up to anyone else?

EDIT: Also, if we consider eastern manufacturers as well, would any IEM best it by a significant margin?

 

Isolation is surprisingly good, a little better than with the GR07. Sound score will probably be around a 9, not sure of the exact number yet. 

 

In that price range I can't think of anything that's significantly better all around and meets your other requirements (including those for sound signature) as well.

Do you think you'll give the DN-1000 a substantially higher rating than the MA750?

Can you tell us more how DN-1000 sounds better than DBA02-MKII in term of bass & treble?

Yes, definitely. Tighter, more detailed bass, clearer, colder mids and a more emphasized treble makes the DN-1000 a much better IEM IMO. To be fair it does cost almost twice as much.

The bass is much better, having much more impact and veing very fast. From memory, the mids are a bit warmer and the treble less bright. Vocals are a bit more upfront on the DN 1000 if I remember correctly.

Gotcha. Well I've got the SM2 now and definitely don't want less bass; I'm after more aggressive upper mids and treble for rock/metal. Even without the filters they still sound unnatural with "real" music; you're right to compare them to the UM3X, I'd say they are basically the same but with a slightly more blended sound and bigger soundstage. Luckily I got them for $100 so I'm not too disappointed :P

 

I've been delaying a GR07 purchase for ages on principle due to their lack of replaceable cable...*whine* I refuse to give in though! I've heard rumors so I'm holding out.

 

Can't wait to hear your take on the InEar SD3, it's been tickling my fancy for some time.

I would have a tough time labeling the SE535 as "fun". It doesn't have as much as the SM2, that's for sure. In general I think of "fun" as more of a v-shaped signature (think "rock" EQ present) which in this is case is closest to the GR07 (or better yet GR07 BE). The SM2 has a warmer sound with more relaxed upper mids. Again, not really "fun" for me, personally at this stage - more of a UM3X competitor in the musician's monitor space.

Not sure of the rating for the DN-1000 yet. I like it quite a lot but its treble is not entirely smooth and can be a little excessive. For example it's more prone towards sibilance than the MA750. Different sound signatures, with the DN-1000 being more v-shaped.

It's a very good earphone. I prefer the less bassy SD-2, though. Reviews should be up soon.

Is it possible to improve the bass tighter and to reduce the brightness in DBA02-MKII by different type of the ear buds tips?

post #12359 of 14628
Could you do a review on the Audio Technica IM-50? Thanks man, I'm glad to have such a knowledgeable source to look to for IEM advice.

Why do you want a tighter bass on something thay already has tight bass? Comply tips soften the sound but they don't tighten the bass.
