Knowing you can demo them is not helping.

 

Can everyone just stop posting about these for the next six months or so? My wallet would greatly appreciate it.

Agreed. All the 1964 threads inevitably turn into a general discussion/comparison of the various 1964 models. And that's all helpful so it's not a problem.

After weeks of careful deliberation, I have decided on the V6 and I have sent my impressions away in the mail.   This will be my first CIEM, and I am mostly confident that it will be the right choice.

 

Prior to this I used Etymotics, which I enjoy and would continue to use, except the cord gets destroyed every two years, and I am sick of replacing them everytime the cord gets destroyed.    But the other thing I don't like about Etymotics is their anemic bass.   Yet I tried the Future Sonics Atrio because I heard they had good bass, and I could not stand them (the dynamic driver sound is not for me. It sounds muddy). 

 

Can anyone explain how the V6 (or even the V4 for that matter) compare to Etymotics?   As long as the bass has more impact and slam and depth than the Etymotics, I will be satisfied.

Jazz ,i find myself i quite the same situation as yours.I don't have any custom,i own i pair of HF5 that satisfy my musical needs a much,but i know that although it's bass is clear and defined,i would like to have a (Custom) iem with the same clarity and refinement but with a more pronounced bass,like a bit more in front your face ,and just a touch of warmness (this maybe done with a bit more mid-range?)

 

The V6 seems to be a warmer version of the Ety's,so a little more "enjoyable" if this is a right term,to shake the head.

 

But there is the the V3 ,which seem to be also clear with maybe a little recessed highs,but with a great bass response ,which obviously could mud the rest of the frequency range ,but that Project86 confirm still considerably clear but obvious not a monster of detail.And not so bassy like the Quads,that is a model that i don't think should suits my needs to may having too much bass impact.

 

Therefore i am looking further to those who respond to your question.biggrin.gif

Haha I'm in the same situation as both of you. I love bass (although too much gives me a headache), but I also love clarity. Coming from ER4B and ASG-1.2, I'm in the market for something that will finally give me both. Is the V6 the one to do that?

Clarity is top notch, on par with my HE-500. The bass reminds me a lot of the Denon D7000 (which is one of the best headphones for basshead). So I would say yes.

Well that's music to my ears. How about the soundstage?

Where do you think it struggles most, if anywhere?

Well,you are making choice things worse.biggrin.gif

 

Edit:Hey Han,i don't want to play the noobish here,and i don't know if you did a chance to try the V3 neither,but you may say that paying 225 dollars more for the V6 you could have the same low frequency characteristic of the V3 but with more clarity ,detail and a more "sparky" highs?

I guess ,perhaps that maybe with recordings with no bass emphasis the V6 should not add any "low end" colour and/or extra quantity ,standing to neutral and to it sound personality purpose.

That i do not know, as I have never heard the V-3, I own the Alclair Reference which is also a 3 drivers, 3 way crossover and to my ears they sound more neutral than the V6, and bit wider soundstage. The V6 has much better bass impact however.

Joker has the V-3 and he did a comparison of them with other IEMs, perhaps you can find some useful information there.

thank you,i did not thought he would already had a V3,gonna look there too.

post #298 of 888

Hi everyone, I'm new to IEM field, actually Joker recommended me V3 as a big step up from my portable M50 cans. I'm now deciding between Quads and V3 and don't know if it's worth paying extra 100$ more for the Quad instead of V3 as I'm really concern about details of music and soundstage instead of more bass impact. Thanks in advance for anyone helping me out

I'd ask1964 about that - they have always shown themselves honest, even when suggesting the lower priced model if it is a better fit.

Isn't the Quads to have surely more bass than the V3,so way more recommended for bassheads?
