Having a dedicated woofer also doesn't always mean more bass than usual. I wouldn't worry about the drivers or how many are used and just read reviews or ask joker.
The point of multiple drivers should be in rendering more complex and fast music more cleanly, clearly and precisely. Good theory if you tune the phone and crossover to perform properly, bad theory if you don't which is often the case w/ most multi BAs and especially more common triples.
anyone heard the apple in ear and know if it sounds better than a superfi4 a151 or pl50? i would like it to have a good soundstage better depth and sound and as close to a moving coil as possible, just more low end basically the synthesizer drops just dont sound the same :'( but i love how they show the instruments so much more like under a razor very easy to hear instrument sepeartion and where they are coming from thats what i want a ba
Nope, ADDIEM doesn't have a good soundstage / depth.
Added Brainwavz Beta & Section 8 Earbuds. Also updated the downloadable rating chart, thanks to carfentanil.
I have a random newb question - what's the best way to burn-in earphones without causing damage to the drivers? I usually play some music from my computer for about 3-4 hours (medium volume), then I leave it overnight plugged into my computer with this burn-in audio file (medium vol), plus any additional listening I may do that day with my mp3 player.
That should be fine, not too different from my process and I haven't had any major issues.
Thanks, and thanks to everyone who fields some of the questions in this thread.
the apple in ear really only deserve a 6.2 while the a151 and likes get a 7+? did they really do that bad with designing
let me rephase it my question. i dont need it to have lots of bass, i actually like a balanced (or a little more bass than flat) responce, but i want to be able to feel the bass there is, which i havent been able to do with the superfi4. will the apple in ear allow me to since it has a dedicated woofer?
Wait...so a low end UE dynamic, and you couldn't feel the bass? Then BA IEMs are not for you at all, they don't move a lot of air so you won't feel the bass, you can hear it but its usually nothing like a dynamic driver.
@ Joker: Thanks for your huge effort in this thread
I am considering the UM Miracle and would like to know your impression of the sound vs. the 10dB peak in the frequency graph around 6kHz.
Is there an audible peak in that area (if you make a sine sweep) or is it just the mic. set-up that causes this?
Ah sorry, thought they were dynamics. The bass impact you are looking for will most likely not be found with the addition of a second BA (higher end dual-BA are the exception). The ADDIEM are pretty low cost these days so it wouldn't hurt to try them to find out for yourself.
