post #3526 of 3682

I thought 80 (for the c5) was bad too, because the e11 bass boost was around 50.  But for some reason it turned out better.  I should check to see where the hell the xba 40's boost is located...

 

Anyway I'll see in a few weeks whether or not it's a good or bad match for the jh16.  If not, I still got the e11, and if that don't work I can always get other amps.  But for now it's really really good with the xba 40.  Also note that there are others who have commented/praised on the c5's unique theater-like bass rumble, and they don't have the xba 40's lol.

 

edit:  can't find the xba 40's frequency response chart!  apparrently it's not good/popular enough for anyone to wanna make one!

Looking for this ?

hmm that could explain why sometimes I hear 2 singers haha.  But that just makes it more awesome.

DYnamic drives do offfer more bass rumble. However, their decay and attack are extremely slow compared to BAs. So that depends on what music one listens to. Slower music is fitting more with dynamic drivers like the bass-heavy wan xuan customs. But if you listen to quick music that I listen to, (dubstep, house, trance, EDM, etc.) then BAs are more fitting. But strictly speaking, yes the dynamic drivers do offer more rumble, but less in punch and attack.

I still find the bass of the dynamic driver somehow punchier ( more rumble )

 

 

Can anyone recommend foam sleeves compatible with customs ? some people around me want to demo my IEM before ordering. Not sure if it's possible.

 

Would like to know this as well

would a shorter nozzle tip improve the bass rumble ? I'm not sure how the sound is affected the more you're closed to the eardrum.

It's hard to say because few of us have had 2 different length nozzles of the same ciem but in universals, closer increases the midbass, likely by better coupling in a smaller airspace. Low bass may also get enhanced but the added midbass increases more noticeably to where any additional low bass is not noticed.

That's not on all dynamic driver yjk. The 1Plus2, Flat 4 Sui & EX1000 have fast decay being dynamic drivers. With the 1Plus2 being extremely fast.

Yes there are exceptions but just based on my feelings it feels like dynamics are a bit slower than BA. But that may juat be my ears smily_headphones1.gif

Shorter nozzle means more room for bass to rumble no ? 

post #3536 of 3682

It's pressure moving your ear drum and more air between it and the nozzle will have less direct coupling. There is no acoustic bass wave propagation in anything under feet in length. Simply pressure changes moving your eardrum to and fro.

That's a good track to show the potential of your bass drivers  https://soundcloud.com/bassotronics_music/bassotronics-you-want-bass

 

Can you feel the very low frequencies in background ? I feel them much better when the IEM is 90% inserted ( still good seal ) 

post #3538 of 3682

I'd bet there's less midbass over the low bass bur it is whatever you hear it is.bigsmile_face.gif

post #3539 of 3682

So for the past month or so I've been shopping for a big audio system for my living room.  I think I've finally figured out what I'm getting, it's around $10,000, and here's the best part--my JH 16's w/freq are still better.  blink.gif

 

I mean, the clarity and low-end definition on the 16's is just so astoundingly good, it's hard to go to something that can't match it.

post #3540 of 3682

yea, I find iems are better than hifi speaker systems.  It's like the sound gets dispersed through the air and feels like a waste once it gets to your ears.  IEMs however, go straight to your eardrums. 

 

edit:  Oh yeah that's also good news for me!  Now the wait for the jh16's are just killing me though.
