A couple of months back my IE8 broke and while i see if i could RMA or repair them i ordered a pair of Phonak PFE 012.
Loved them, the IE8 are better on some areas. but the bass was just as good. the highs might have had the edge in the IE8, but the Phonaks just beat them over the head in clarity and speed.
So i thought that if i love them so much lets upgrade them to the real thing. get a pack of gray filters to replace these supposobly muddy and vailed green perfect bass filters.
I install them on my PFE and suddenly they lose all their charm, the sound has no force or impact to it. the bass was lost the treble is muffled. everything except the vocals is suddenly in second plane. the sound is gritty and dirty.
I tried a different set of filters in case they were defective or resetting them incase they were badly installed.
but no dice. they all sound the same.
So ? am i mad for prefering the PFE´s to the IE8 ?
and even worst. prefering the bloated and vailed perfect bass filters to the superior gray filters ?
