I've been a headphone person more then iems, though ive had my share of iems, mostly mid end - tf10's , ie8 . didnt really move up the ladder from there, i've always wanted to try customs ever since i registered at head fi lol finally have round 1000$ with me.. i was really considering the 1964 since they have superb service and dont want to be stuck with um / heir as they take ages to get the customs back to you. these will be a pair that im not gonna be upgrading anytime soon.
Bass: The majority of the music I listen to is bass inclined, so I enjoy listening to bass that is good quality and a fair amount of quantity. last iems ive heard is the ie8s .. with the knob at the lowest level - i liked how the bass was. .. i prefer it to be tight and punchy .. not too bloated or boomy - should feel natural as the song intended, not overly emphasized aswell.
Mids: I'm looking for smooth, lush, clear, detailed mids. I do not want the mids to be laid back , what i prefer is a slightly natural, slight forward presentation.
Treble: For treble, I like a smooth, crisp, and sparkly presentation with good clarity, but not extended treble to the point it becomes fatiguing.
-Presentation: the overall presentation should be clear, detailed, punchy, balanced, most importantly just something natural and fun to listen too, this will be my first step into custom iems and i think with the v6 im definately not going wrong, considering its the most bang for the buck iem out there at the moment. i hope this helps you understand where im coming from and what i want, all recomendations and inputs are welcome, thanks alot in advance guys :)
