Im having the same sentiments.. Ive demoed both and tried a/b-ing then and i find the V6 more natural and really enjoyable and felt the V6S has too much bass which i cant handle. This are demo version and like they say when its customized for you, everything will enhanced more and I cant think how much bass will the V6S would it have more.

Pull the trigger on the V6! Does anyone use this in stage performance? I play drums bass and guitars.. Either of the three and i hope it will still work for me..

Any thoughts?

Any comments on the wood faceplates?  Some impressive photos over at 1964.  Just interested if anyone tried them.

I have them on my V6. The plates are wonderful (I forget which grade of wood I got). I'll try to take picture and put it up. It's a light wood and the rest of the iem is royal blue.

Hi Eric, I was wondering if you ever did a full review of the V6? I haven't been able to find anything other than your initial impressions on this thread or the main 1964 Ears thread. I'm thinking that the V6 is the best next step for me, but I'd love to read more impressions and reviews! Thanks! smily_headphones1.gif

Anyone happen to know when the V8 introductory price will end? I emailed 1964, but I haven't gotten a response yet.

Seems like V6S is more accurate, but I´m worried about V6S sibilances and treble spikes. How do you think sibilances are compare to others IEMs like ER4P, triple.fi...?

Also I like V8 sound signature, although there isn´t many reviews and maybe waiting for more opinions is better idea...

had a chance to try out v6s n v8 w my niece as am getting a pair for her bd n she is a drummer. V8 sounded very smooth w no sibilance at all n w jazz they r great. But w tracks on heavy bass....its waaay too much for both of us...the rumbling drowns e mids. Used manage sound.mixing for stage performance n find that separstion is important to know who is paying what..e v6s did better here w satisfying bass but v8 had bass rumbling n lingering too much. V6s wasnt sibilant too.this is cominf from testing jh16fp n fitear which we both find jh16 highs abit too bright n sibiant at times. She ended up choosing e v6s...although her favourite is still e fitwar 335dw...which is digs too deep into my pockets...

How did the treble in the v6 and v8 compare? Was the bass on the v6 tighter and more punchy?

v6 sounded brighter but not sibilant. V8 highs seems recess but could be due to e over powering bass...on bass light tracks e highs seems similar.
am testing e v8 again tomorrow. Both were abt to pick up nuances in e music, very detailed. Just to confirm that e impression stays e same.

A new review was posted on Headfonia comparing the V6S to the CE6E

post #881 of 920

I've been thinking about buying the V3 as my first CIEM, but recently I've gotten some extra money to spend and wondering if spending the extra $200 would be worth the sound. 1964 suggested that the V6 to be used as an audiophile CIEM than the V3. However, looking at the frequency graph it seems like the V3 is more forward in the mids and I like to hear the vocalist, and the V6 graph seems like it's more on the brighter side.

 

Can someone that have heard both V3 and V6 help me out here?

Have you seen the review on Headfonia of the V6S? Don't think it was mentioned here already

Haven't kept up on this thread. I promised I'd stop posting about headphones when my wife got me V6-Stages :-) unfortunately they are now lost :,-(

So, from what I remember I never thought the v6s had a ton of bass. For me I was amazed by the "smooth" clarity. However, they were (are* if I can find them) the only balanced armature iems I've had. So again, V6s really sounds like what I would expect a monitor to sound like-- very clear, very precise, but smooth- no harshness like is sometimes blamed on BAs.

Man, I miss my V6-Stages. Did anyone already mention that the Headphone List (joker + joe) has the V6s's listed ahead of not only the V3's, but also UM Miracle's? I'm impressed. Validates my decision to jump from sub-100$ category to the V6Stage as my summit-fi... Oh well

God that blows - was it a "lost it, but will probably find it sometime" - Or a "lost it and some bastard took them and won't turn them in" type deal?

post #885 of 920
Lol, I'm hoping it's "lost it in the move and will find it in a box" otherwise it's "lost it in the move and family member cleaned it up with the trash" 😕

But I am thinking now that I might have another go at the boxes in the garage....
