Radius HP-TWF11r Review and Impressions thread - Page 52

post #766 of 864

Haha well put, but I think if everyone followed this philosophy, enthusiast forums about anything - whether it be sports, cars or earphones - wouldn't exist. We all wanna champion something.

 

Who doesn't get a thrill when they show a friend what great IEM's sound like, and they are impressed? Who isn't at least a little bit irritated if they don't seem impressed?

  Share the fan, eh ? Btw i don't exclude myself from this behaviour, i just wanted to give you a different point of view because i understand where you are coming from.

 

  I also felt that the exchange between Mark and the rest of us had nothing more to offer. We all have first hand experience with said pair of phones, we all have already stated our opinions. Mark's opinion doesn't follow the general consensus, and although he might came out a little strong, he has his points based on his preferences, and those preferences are not going to change based on something he reads here.

 

  Besides, criticism is always useful when backed up by arguments, so i am really looking forward to his review of the DDMs. Many of us sometimes forget the fact that not all have the same taste, and that we post here to help others find what is good for theirs. So Mark's review, will help others that have similar sonic preferences to his, to avoid making a bad purchase and that's all that matters (at least as i see it).

You sure its a tear?  I think they are notched in the stress relief if you have a close look.  Not the same on both sides?

post #774 of 864

ya Im sure, maybe i will try and take a pic

post #775 of 864

  I just took a better look at the way rawrster wears his DDMs in the pics he posted. Man, they must be reaching your brain . I know that they probably feel more secure in place that way, but aren't your ear canals in pain? No wonder you are getting too much bass.

 

  Anyway, i decided to follow suit and post some pics of my own with recommended flanges and all.

 

Flanges:

How i think these are meant to be worn (it's hinted by their shape and it's allot more comfortable):

Give this a try .

@ SkiesOfAzel,

What are those flanges? 

Is that you on the picture?  looks like a girl's face

 

I also think DDM are made to be worn just as you wear them, but today I tried the way rawrster is using DDMs and I liked it very much. I still do not understand why so many of you complain about the fit. When I tried them first time, I was not sure if they were the most comfortable things in the world, but after few hours I got used to it. Humans are just never happy, such is our way fellows..

post #777 of 864

Here's the way I wear mine to get the best of both worlds:

People tell me I'll kill the strain reliefs but so far so good. No microphonics, but comfortable as well. I swear I think it makes a small difference in sound if the port is facing into the ear or out of it.

post #778 of 864

Well I can wear these down for around 10 minutes before my ear starts hurting. There's not really another option for me. Also only the tips are in my ears and nothing else. Also for those interested I'll be done with my review something tomorrow or Wednesday or whenever I have a chance to sit down for an hour or two for just critical listening with these.

 

@yello131: people complain about the fit because it's horrible

  I can't for the life of me remember where i got those flanges. I have a bag with ~20 pairs of flanges and i found them there. As for the picture, sorry to disappoint you but i am a guy.

I also wear the DDM in the cable down way, fit is not that much of a problem but rather the microphonics.

 

Oh at first glance I thought theose are UE single flange tips?

I'm also thinking of trying some UE silicon tips for the DDM. Currently I'm using the Sony Hybrids. While they are more comfortable than the stock tips I feel that they are making the sound a tad more bassy.
