I'm curious why accessories are given the same relative weight in the scoring as comfort, build quality, isolation, etc. I mean, let's be realistic - I have half a dozen of the little earwax tools & clam-shell cases. I also have lots of tips that I never plan on using because they don't fit or are uncomfortable. I get that having multiple sizes of tips can be important - but I think that could simply be a small part of the "comfort" and "sound" categories - I wouldn't have it be a stand-alone metric.
Sorry - I know I'm being critical of what was clearly a HUGE amount of work. I do appreciate your dedication to our hobby!
Legacy, mostly. When I started out every category had the same weight including sound. Over time the scale of the 'sound' score got more specific and I increased the weight of the category. I never bothered to change anything else. I've been meaning to halve the weight of the accessory score in the average but it hasn't been high on my priority list. Aside from 'boosting' things like the Phonak Perfect Bass the change really only modifies the order slightly.
I don't think it's the 5/5 score that bob has an issue with but the weighting of the category in general. Agreed on the cable - AFAIK the 232 is the first IEM to include both a mic cable and a standard one, something portable headphone manufacturers have been doing for a while.
And thanks, much appreciated
In its price range. The GR06 is not as clear and detailed as an RE0 or Sunrise Xcape but still above average for its price. The treble is a bit uneven, not as bad as a Klipsch S3/S4 or anything.
I don't think |Joker| uses the score for anything. It's just a score, none of it is weighted. If he did weight it equally, he would have some sort of overall score that averaged all of them. I'm sure if he did this, he would not weight accessories as much. I don't even score accessories. I just state what it comes with :p
The only place where anything is calculated is the 'average' column of the table, and that's really only used for sorting.
