MLE's headset guide is becoming famous
Thanks for the link. That's awesome.
Though I hear I'm also infamous in some other forums, lol.
Got the Yuin G1A! They're quite the sexy looking pair of clip ons.
The clips are SUPER comfy, and are smoothened out so it's not sharp edges like the KSC35. Because they're plastic and not rubberized like the KSC75, they are incredibly easy to put on, unlike the 75s, which tend to grip on the ears. They have the exact same form factor as the 75's clips.
Upon first listen using the Modi/Magni stack, they're incredibly well balanced with a smooth presentation. Not even one song in, and I already know these are keepers. I was afraid they'd be bass light, but they have a nice, balanced amount of bass. So happy with them. $150 and they definitely sound like better balanced, and more refined KSC35s. Maybe not a $100 improvement, but they are definitely worth it to me.
I do see that pushing the drivers closer adds SQ, so I may just swap out to the KSC35 clips, as those push the drivers closer, though I will lose some comfort. The 35's clips don't bother me until a few hours of use, so it's no biggie. Not that I feel they need them, as the stock clips sound great. They're definitely not bendable like the 75's rubber/metal clips. I'll try those and see, though, I've bent those quite a bit. We'll see...
Keep you guys posted.
Not doing much today, so while I test these out, I'll be adding the external amp section.
edit: External Amp section added, with the Fiio E9K, O2, and Magni listed.
Let me know what you guys think.
Jesus, the Yuin G1A is very insensitive. I have to max out my Fuze to get an appreciable volume. I expected that though. They ARE 150ohm, lol. These definitely desire some amping. Still, I'll be taking them to work to use this way just for a few weeks just to spend some time with them.
Hmm, looks like I'll be using the KSC75 or stock clips for them, maybe. The 35 clips for some reason makes the treble harsher. The stock clips are good, and more detailed, though the bass isn't as deep. The 75 clips are the bassiest, for sure. They're just a pain in the ass to put on. I have a hard time putting the clip on my left ear for some reason.
I may just stick to the stock, since they're the most detailed and balanced, and these aren't formusic, but for tv, and anime... gotta outweigh the pros and cons.
Flash = brighter looking foams. They're actually black
