post #181 of 1355

I have a question on the treble. I'm not particularly averse to prominent treble but it has to be smooth treble. I'm recently in the market for a resolving BA IEM and was thinking of picking these up, but I'd like the treble to be smooth and sweet. Examples of not smooth to me are the UE SF3. Jagged treble there. UE's TF10 on the other hand had sweet smooth treble. How does the B2's treble fare?

I consider the CK10 and ER4P harsh at times.  Not so the DBA for me.  It is aggressive in a PRATy sort of way (yes I said it) but not Gradoesque.  Fit and tips being equal of course.  

 

Nobody has posted on the production B2 yet.

If only they did the cables in red and black too. That would be great.

Hope the shipping doesn't take too long. Looking at the shipped notice for a week will get annoying...

We should have production samples next week, some people will get those to do their reviews with :)

The B2 will be in stock somewhere between the first to second week of May now, everything is pretty much and we're waiting for the driver factory to finish off making all the drivers.

If they're in stock in may, does this mean that they will ship out around the end of may?

post #186 of 1355

Hey guys, I have my review up. http://headfonics.com/?p=413 and a comparison between the B2 and the Golds. http://headfonics.com/?p=432

 

They're off to mootookang!

Awesome Ish!  I wish we had a review on the actual production sample but I'll be happy hearing about the silver cable version for now.  I will wait for the word on the copper cable version as the treble on these just doesn't sound like what I want. the copper version might fix the problem.  I mean the mids sound like what I am looking for in a BA, but the treble sounds too much like the SF3.

Well, you could always stuff some foam in front of the nozzle and see how that fairs as a treble-cut filter, but I may be hypersensitive to treble too. I have the SF4 (apparently the same as the SF3) and their treble is more harsh.

Ah that's good to hear at least. SF3 was just too much. If this is not that bad then it's a step in the right direction. I don't want to put filters as I don't want to veil teh sound, the reason I'm getting this in teh first place is so that I have a clear and analytical set to complement the Golds.

They'll certainly do that for you! I mean the affirmative review is right in front of you! wink.gif

 

Its treble is pretty tolerable actually. Compared to the Golds, it's like the removal of a veil, but YEMV.

For the preorder price of $120, I recommend purchasing these over the TF10’s which has a recessed mid and a overly sparkly treble. not to mention fit issues for many assuming you can live with the sibilance at times.

 

 

$120 where? the pre-order of mp4nation is 140, somewhere else maybe?

The DBA-02 sounds good from a Clip+.  It improves a bit w/ an amp slightly but sounds fine w/ a Clip+ alone.  Assuming the B2 performs like the DBA.  The bigger trick might be fit.
 

 

post #194 of 1355

Has anyone been able to really compare these with either the M3 or the Phonak Audeo PFE (w green filters)?  Those are my two favorites at the moment but both of them have one big flaw that makes me continue to look for the perfect moderately priced (under 150) IEM.  The Phonaks are just too quiet running straight from my Zune HD and the M3s don't have a chin slider (I need one to wear them at the gym comfortably).

It's 120 with a coupon

I don't know it off the top of my head but it should be floating around the forums somewhere.
