Warm and comfortable IEMs for $50ish? - Page 2

post #16 of 22

Between the m2 and the eterna, I'd go for the eterna. It looks to be a considerably more comfortable IEM. Plus it has what I consider to be a superior body design, one where the wire goes over the ear while the shell conforms to the shape of the ear.

Look at your own definiton.  1. not coarse or vulgar; genteel, elegant, or polite

2. subtle; discriminating 3. Free of coarseness or impurities.  The word neutral is nowhere in that definiton.

 

Here you go, educate yourself:

 

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/neutral

 

Go find a thesaurus where refined and neutral are used synonymously.

 

Maybe when you understand how an 18 year old Lagavulin is more refined than your basic Johnnie Walker you can talk about Alcohol or headphones for that matter.

 

In fact, after listening to your rambling I need a drink.  

 

I should have realized using Scotch in an analogy would lead you to Rubbing Alcohol.

Nice, latch on to #7 while the rest of us use 1-6.  Do you even know how they rank or order definitions?  GJ on ignoring everything else including common vernacular and usage.  Perhaps you should have this conversation w/ yourself since you are the only one who uses English in any acceptable fashion.  You should look up ignore while you're at it.  Nevermind, let me demonstrate it for you.  Imbecile.

Sheesh, no need for the insults. I still don't see how you're making the connection between 'refined' and 'achromatic'.

Thats the problem with reviews. No matter how many you read, they don't give you the full picture in the context of personal tastes. Most of the time I find myself reaching for the M2/R03 over the Eterna.

He's equating coloration to an impurity like sibilance or line noise.  I find it moronic myself since by his definition 99.99% of all speakers, headphones and IEM's would be 'unrefined' by his usage.  A Beyer T1 or JH16 would be unrefined to him.  Perhaps even the HD800 and JH13's are too 'colored' depending on his level of insanity.  Just silly really.

OK, cheater, you have to understand that the word "refined" is not a word that is usually associated with audio.  Yes, with liquids or foods, refined means free from impurities, as in refined sugar.  But an audiophile would use the word "refined" possibly in describing a headphone in comparison to another, for example, comparing the Sennheiser HD800 vs HD202.  Most people would agree that the HD800 is a refined headphone (better be at $1400), but most would also agree that it is colored toward the Sennheiser signature, which is not completely flat or neutral.

 

Thankfully, you seem to understand the audio definitions of "neutral" vs "colored".

 

And I suggest you stay away from the whole subject of alcohol or whiskey -- you obviously have no understanding of how whiskey is made (for starters, you don't start with "pure alcohol" and add flavor and coloring, LOL).  Any number of websites will tell you how it's done (malt + water = germination = sprouts + drying + grinding + yeast = fermintation + distilling, etc, etc).
