I believe this is not by any chance.

 

I do have some comparison with other CIEMs, and that V6 sound for this amount of money?? They pulled it off on purpose..

Hard to believe, but closest match to Layla from whatever I heard before.

So what your saying is the V6 sounds more like the Layla then anything else you have heard?

Sounds like some conspiracy going on... :popcorn:

How do the V3's and V6 Stage compare to similar priced universals?

post #6606 of 6611

My Custom V6 Stage is technically superior to any of my current universals - I would say they were better than any of the universal I used to own, but considering the Ref1 & 1+2, the V6S is a different flavor - equally proficient - with an expansive soundstage - maybe not as big as the Tralucent IEMs - but the V6S fit perfectly, are more coherent and don't exhibit driver flex. 

 

Their biggest flaw is that they aren't more expensive - I also have never experienced the treble spikes that Joker mentions in his review - no sibilance whatsoever. They can be bright, but that's part of their signature.

Wow based on your current signature I am completely sold. Thank you for reconfirming my choice! smily_headphones1.gif

You really cannot go wrong - six extremely coherent drivers - the mesh so well. Very capable IEM.... huge value.

 

Not that I don't love my V8 though - I think I just found a synergy made in heaven... I finally got around to hooking up my V8's to my Toxic Silver Poison and wow! - bass hits a bit harder, soundstage expands a bit and the highs move forward a little - all nuances as this is simply a cable - but the one that comes standard isn't brilliant - far from it (which free ones are?) so the differences are easily heard (IMO - at least for me)

These days I listen a lot with V6S (uf) and 1p2. Yes, soundstage of 1p2 is a bit bigger, but to my ears 1p2 is also the slightly brighter one of the two. I've read a lot about that the V6S should sound bright, but I just don't hear it that way (must be my crazy old ears). Maybe it's due to the cables on them, the (copper) Rhapsodio Panther MKII probably smoothens the sound on my V6S. I've got a Toxic Silver Widow iem cable coming in one of these days (ordered 6 weeks ago), curious on which one of these 2 it will end up...

 

Concerning synergy: V6S imo sounds magical straight out of the DX90, where 1p2 sounds a bit better out of my X5/C5 stack. On my recently purchased Pono player (had a lot of laughs about that one, untill I heard the sound coming out of it) I think they both sound equally good in different ways...

Reading Joker's review, I too was expecting sibilance and some tizzyness in the highs. But when I heard my custom I was completely taken aback with the lack tizzyness and sibilance. The "sss" sounds can be a bit emphasized at times, but it comes across as being quite soft and sounds more like an articulation of detail rather than sharp sibilance. 

 

The best part for me though, and again I was not expecting this from the popular reviews, was the bass. Th texture and detail is simply out of this world.

Regarding sibilance, I find the V6-Stage to be quite true to the source material, giving what it gets. If a track is sibilant you'll hear it, if not you won't.

Ah yes, the bass detail. On a few tracks I have with really well recorded drums it's as if you're hearing the actual drum skins themselves.

And to highlight a point Ivabign has made, the coherency across all 6 drivers is excellent. You're never hearing multiple drivers, just one cohesive sound - with the same (excellent) level of detail, clarity and response across the entire frequency spectrum. IMHO, a lack of such coherency was a major flaw of the W4R. Decent bass detail, but muddy mid-bass and veiled lower mids, then decent upper mids with very good detail and sparkle on top.

If all is not working fully together the realism of the music suffers, and here the V6-Stage really shines!
