Describe Your IEMs and Headphones as Cars! (with pictures)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we all mention our IEM or headphone and compare it directly to a car, with a picture.

 

Just a simple concept for summarizing the sound quality/sound signature of a particular IEM/headphone without all the technical jargon of head-fi! Just a sweet picture of a ride to sum it all up o2smile.gif.

 

The format is simple, just type your IEM/headphone and then a hyphen followed by the car you would best describe your IEM to fit. It does not matter if it does not fit the speed or performance of the car directly. For example, if you feel an IEM sounds inviting and warm, then you are free to describe it as a car that may not be fast, but luxurious!

 

However, include a minimum of TWO pictures:

 

  • One of the exterior of the car, which will describe the IEM's sound signature/sound quality in general.
  • The second picture should be of the interior/steering wheel/cockpit of the car, which will describe how you feel when you put on the IEM's/headphones and hit play!

 

I'll start it off with three of my favorite IEMs/headphones!

 

1) JH Audio JH16 PRO -> Ferrari F458 Italia

 

Performance & Sound Signature of the JH16 PRO:

In the cockpit of the JH16 PRO:

3) EarSonics SM3 -> Audi RS5

Now it's your turn!

 

P.S. This is all subjective so let's not get into the nitty gritty of what car would fit the IEM best. I just want something simple and fun where we can glance at the car and get a picture of what the IEM might sound like!

 

And if my idea sounds crazy, I know it is o2smile.gif.

I'm sure the concept of the thread seemed like a good idea in your head, but I just don't get the point. Everyone's favorite would equate to the high-priced luxury/sports cars, while the least favorite would equate to the cheap, subcompact piece of crap cars.

Imo, that many pictures is just major overkill.
