Yeah I guess if you're coming from the DBA-02, it's a bit weird to switch to SM2/3 as they are very different sounding iems. For me, if I had the EM3Pros custom fit for me and are tuned that way then I won't do changes on them with another manufacturer. I am not really sure if they can retain the similar sound from the original. But it's up to you if you want to upgrade your EM3Pro to your liking. Last time I was also considering this with my SM3s but fortunately, I stick to the original sound of the iems so that I would have a sound basis on trying to compare to some of my prospect to audition headphones. Even my JH16s which started as a meh, became my very technical proficient iem which has strenghts not found on other iems.


Good point. I was just sort of thinking aloud tongue.gif I am actually enjoying my uesf5v2cs very much with its very cohesive sound. Sound is very balanced and the soundstage i thnk is better than the em3. I'm really liking the sound from a single driver. Makes me want to hunt for more.

While I haven't done it, I have always wondered how well another driver can be integrated and if the sound would change with only more quantity. That would be the most economical way to get the upgrade, but who will reshell the solid acrylic shell?

Why not try stage93's Stage6. Maybe you can arrange for a demo of their customs and let us know what you think biggrin.gif


Yes, I hope to hear those some day.  And the EM3 Pro and DBA-02 are so very different...

Some day, but there is so many others I have on my plate...

Thank you.  I will have to compare the EM4 with the LCD-2 when I get a chance...

I have been listening a bit to the T1 Live! and it has a fairly neutral frequency response, not adding anything to the presentation.  Compared with the EM4, the T1 has a less dynamic presentation and less emphasis on both ends of the spectrum.  Spaciousness is similar but different.  While I can't say for sure until I A/B, it doesn't seem like anything else I have in my collection.

Thanks, this is informative.

Sorry, nowadays whenever I mention the DBA-02, its about the highs. It made me a treble head :P

 

UM and Stage93 mentioned they can reshell the EM3... but I think I may drop the thought... single driver sound is more to my liking. Unless I can get access to demo units of multiple driver (custom) IEMs.

I heard UM would not reshell the EM3 Pro because it was a solid acrylic shell, but I guess they now can.

The Serene hearing aid dryer as it seemed to be a pretty good value.

Am interested in the NT6 after reading your wonderful review on it. Have been sending them mails from their website but no replies about it. How to go about it from here?

If you like that sound, the NT-6 is amazing!  I am not sure what is going on, but sometimes they take longer.  I will PM you Seoung ByoungHa's email address.

I just placed an order for one.

 

post #943 of 4815

By the way,is the NT6 pin connectors the same with jh/westone kind? After market cables can be used with it?

post #944 of 4815

Sharing :p

Another reason why I went with sf5v2 for reshell is that it doesn't hiss (or I just can't hear it? :P) with amp... I am now listening fuze>LOD>Epiphany EHP-O2{ObjectiveO2}>sf5v2cs. Initial impression - the O2 made the sound more natural and lively specially on the highs. There's more air and more weight to the bass notes/lines. It really just improves on the existing sound taking it to another level - more power/oomph.

 

EHP-O2 and the classic Headsave Classic :p

It is JHA and Westone pin compatible, and I updated the review with the info.  Thanks for mentioning it.  

 

Check out my cable thread if you haven't already seen it for many options.  Anything JHA/Westone compatible will work with it, but the TF10 stuff will also with some minor modification (flattening the pins slightly with pliers and converting the pins from recessed to flush).

Nice; the O2 looks like a nice amp, and amps can make a difference!
