Finally, the time has come where I can purchase a new set of Customs! My UE5c's have served me well over the last 6 year, but they are beginning to die on me. I have decided to purchase a pair of 1964 ears largely due to budget constraints, but also because I hear great things about their products.
So the question is should I get the Triples or Quads? I don't have an amp and will be listening to these monitors mostly through my Macbook Pro (2008) and my iPhone 4. Vocals are a very important part of the mix to me (as I used to me a singer) and want monitors that don't hide the vocals in the mix. My UE5c's, in my opinion, hide the vocals a bit. I like a decent amount of tight bass but I wouldn't consider myself a "bass head". I tend to like a "fun" sounding earphone, rather than a really flat analytical earphone, if that makes sense. I listen to a wide variety of music from Lady Gaga, to Simon & Garfunkel, from Blue Grass to Big Band, as well as some classical.
I have the budget to get the Quads at $500, but want to get the monitor that is best for my situation rather than just the most expensive. Anybody out there happen to have both the Triples and Quads that could give me a comparison?
