After extended listen of my V3, I have to conclude that these have significantly more bass quality than from what I remember of my triples(triples were 2-way 3 drivers, V3 is 3-way). The again, I was going from my CK10 to these, so my ears would be highly sensitive to bass since CK10 is close to neutral when it comes to bass, but after long listen I feel there is good amount of bass. I like the stage and imaging, It's counter-intuitive how CIEMs provide such imaging. I was listening to some opera and it feels like I'm there, and I can hear the vocals placement change just like on stage. So imaging is there. It might be my brain burning-in, but the way it sounds now from how it sounded initially, I want to believe in BA burn-ins.
I cannot imagine any more bass quantity. I think if you are a bass head, 1964 Ears should provide given what I've experienced with the V3. I think any more bass quantity on top of V3 would be too much for me. V3 doesn't sound neutral to me because of the bass quantity, also the mids are a bit forward which I don't mind as I love to hear details of vocals. I don't hear excessive sibilance like my CK10, just enough to provide the necessary details. But after extended listening, I feel like I'm hearing pretty good amount of details with my setup. Is the details up to the level of my HE-6? No, and I'm not sure if any iem can get up to that level.
My impressions I sent was closed mouth, and the fit is fine. 1964 told me there is 20% chance that fit will not be right with closed mouth impressions, and I guess I fall in the 80%, as Hidition recommend closed mouth unless you will be using them on stage as a singer.
I'm curious how it scales with more accurate source, I shell see.
