I still listen to FictionJunction and especially Kalafina.  Enjoy most of what Yuki Kajiura works on, since she usually creates a good pairing with vocalists and violin.

Anyone experiences sibilance in fripSide's "Only My Railgun", especially BA200 users?

FictionJunction are great! Though I got the stone cold album, and it has a very shrill frequency during the chorus, wondering if that's a production flaw. Would like to see Yukka collaborate with Yuki again in the future smily_headphones1.gif

Doesn't stop me though, I love it ^^.

 

It really felt like that, in 2010 / 2011.

 

I remember comments like "I even see some people now buying audiophile gear now whom listen to J-pop confused_face.gif"

 

 

Now it feels like half of the audiophile market are J-pop lovers or something lol.

Personally, I find the claim that Asian music is mixed too bright completely unfounded. I don't know what those people listen to, but I've been listening to Asian music (Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Indonesian, Malaysian, Singaporean) since the 80's, and I also listen to a ton of music from the west, and there's no evidence to support one is brighter than the other.

I wouldn't say bright per se either, but I do tend to avoid J-pop because I can't stand those unnatural-sounding, high-pitched female voices. My brother listens to that music all the time....can...not...stand...it...at...all. T_T

I mean, the anime is good an all, but those voices sound SO fake. My parents can't stand listening to that stuff either because they think they sound like grade school students.

^ *facepalm*

That's just one segment of J-pop though. There are plenty of female Japanese singers who don't sing in that "buriko" style.

J-pop and J-rock recordings got so much better in the past few years.  I decided to become an audiophile because of J-Rock. Didn't really respect music that much before that.

Lots of the Anime OP recordings before 2012 have this problem, its gotten much better, but it's still quite bad compared to mainstream J-Rock and J-pop. I really liked the second SAO opening, but the recording was so bad that I thought something went wrong with my HD800. I love Only My Railgun btw, but it just sounds bad with high-end gear.

Well what do ya know! I sign up for head-fi to ask questions about headphones and I end up finding a vibrant Asian music community :3

 

Here's a list of my favorite artists (that you should definitely check out!):

 

Bolded are my favorites (Click to show)

4minute
2NE1
Aldious
Black List
COPPU
Dazzle Vision
e.via
ecosystem
exist+trace
f(x)
FLiP
Gil Me
Gummy
itsue
KARA
LIL
Mass of the Fermenting Dregs
miss A
Miss S
Nine Muses
RAMPANT
Rania
Rimi
SCANDAL
Shigi
T-ARA
UPLIFT SPICE
Wonder Girls
Yasuha Kominami
Yellow Machinegun
YEYO
Yousei Teikoku

 

I might as well ask here rather than another part of the forums (considering you all have experience with Korean/Japanese music)

Would the DT880 + FiiO E17 be a good combination for listening to Asian pop, rock, metal, soft piano songs, and rap? [essentially a wide range of music!]

Thanks for any help!

 

PS: Is this thread mostly for discussing anime music? I noticed in the OP they mentioned jpopsuki, and I'd love to add other head-fi'ers to my friends list and compare music!~

I went to Dazzle Vision and exist+trace's concerts at Sakura-Con 2009 and 2011 respectively...not my favourite kind of music, but cool to see in-person.

As for anime music, I heard the Audio Technica ATH-ESW9 is a fairly good choice as it does vocals really well (I personally haven't heard it before).

 

P.S. Welcome to Head-Fi and sorry about your wallet! dt880smile.png
