[Review] Future Sonics MG6PRO Ear Monitors: Dynamic Driver Custom-Fit In-Ear Monitors - Page 30

post #436 of 1082

Another question to the lucky mg6pro owners:  just how much air do the 13mm speakers push?  Say, if you play music and hold a monitor 1mm from your fingertip, can you actually feel the air against your fingertip or is it more that the monitors give off a perception of airy bass?

 

thanks,

Chris

I'm not sure what you are trying to get at here?  A 13mm driver moves more air than a smaller driver.  What exactly is perceived airy bass?

I think he just wants to know if it's literally so powerful that you can feel air coming out of the nozzle with your fingertip... sort of an ultimate 'moving air' scenario.

Exactly! I'm just wondering if a top tier dynamic driver based IEM is actually powerful enough to push air into the ear canal in a significant way, much like how one can feel the bass being pushed out of a high quality full sized speaker.. Any thoughts/opinions?

Haven't had a chance to try it this evening. Maybe a little later on... 

 

I can tell you the drivers do move a fair amount of air, because in a couple places on Peter Gabriel's Up album I can feel a light tickling sensation inside my ears with how powerfully they convey deep bass.

I can also sense that tickling sensation with the EM3pros. I hope someone can A/B the bass of MG6Pros against another top tier BA customs :P

Having read through this thread I have decided to make an appointment for impressions tomorrow and order my very first pair of IEM's custom fit at that, my only dilemma if you can call it that is what color to get, I would be interested in any opinions on this having read the remarks made about the clear finish, being based in Australia I am wary of black, obvious heat problem, are there any pictures of white ones? Thank you

- finally placed an order for a pair of these DD babies, and man, am i excited to get them! 

 

to all who had customs: how does the sockets and cables hold up to the daily use of your customs? i know FS's customs are not recessed, so i am a little worried about the cable connectors snapping on me.

I have owned 3 sets of customs, all of which used the same flush connectors. I have subjected them to a fair amount of stress with no damage. Several times I snagged a cable hard enough to pull it out of the connector socket, but only cable pins were slightly bent. They were easily straightend and have worked fine ever since.

This is a very robust type of connector, plus the cables are interchangeble between my westones, freqs and future sonics.

I've certainly felt that from IEMs but that's not what you are getting from speakers IME.  Nothing to do w/ air pressure to the ear drum really.  What you should be getting is a combination of air pressure against your chest and body with some rumble across the floor.  You senses could translate that to believing you hear it in your ears but you don't really.  If that's what you really mean it's physically impossible for an IEM to replicate that experience.  More appropriate example would be a bass capable headphone rather than speakers compared to IEMs.

Just been looking online (as I'll probably get these as a Christmas present to myself lol):

 

34ohm Impedance, Sensitivity 112db

 

I'm not that tech-minded... so how does the above to compare to other customs. Easy to drive? Won't be too picky with headphone amps etc? Thanks.

In experience I find them very easy to drive. They're easier than even the EX1000's.... Not the easiest I've ever run out of my Sony X, for example the SM3 is easier, but definitely no problem with most DAP's I'd say....

Agreed. Future Sonics makes them easy to drive. Certainly easier than Monster iems, for example.
