I would say treble is neutral, bass is boosted quite a bit, mids are forward (too forward at times) and on recordings were the 500Hz 1000Hz range is boosted, they sound too unnatural. That's why they're amazing in hot recordings, even better than my old AKG K540, which was fantastic at $100

There you go bro, next time try google image search on the headphone + frequency response.

E12 - disappointed. The bass boost is bloated similar to the E11. Just to strongly crawling into the mids...

E17 - what a surprise. It's boosting bass without using the manual boost itself. Nice, clean enhancement - I like it. But the manual boost is also crappy - I guess all Fiios just love crawling into mids... Although the amp via coaxial nicely adds some bass, it also colors the sound adding to much higher mids (E11 and E12 were pretty neutral in comparison). That's a shame...

 

Wondering how the digizoid's compare to those amps.


Thanks for that info, I had been thinking of buying the E12 as a stop-gap before getting a Ibasso Pelican or RSA balanced amp. Saved me the time and hassle.

... Maybe it wasn't those... I think it was m55x's?... Oh yeah, I was looking at those, but didn't even look up a graph for em. I was thinking m55x's. Those don't have a single graph I can find. The m5x's do, but not the m55x's. I feel stupid.

Speaking of DAC/amping for the lowest end......

" Direct Coupled Analogue Output Stage

There are no opamps, muting circuits, or capacitors between the DAC chip and the output sockets to affect the accuracy of the audio signal. This allows the Bushmaster to operate down to 1Hz. The Bushmaster is therefore also suitable for DVD audio application, which can go down to 5Hz or lower."

 

:eek: Feel the gut-wrench...

I think there are three type of bassheads. First type usually only wants like 5-7 db boosted bass and look at cans like the lcd-2s and the like. They are searching for bass that sounds realistic, like when a drum hits it sounds exactly like a drum, and you hear the resonance in perfection.

The second type (me) searches for bass that feels realistic. Usually about a 7-15 db boost for them as they just want the beats in the music to feel like beats. A drum hit should vibrate the air just like a real one.

The third type (hawaii... Lol) looks for the thrill in POUNDING, CANNON-LIKE bass that is well... Really fun :3
As much db as possible without distortion most of the time. A drum hit should make your head feel like it was hit instead of the drum.

Idk, just thinking about it. I think we all are a bit of each type just most are apart of one group more than the other ones.

There are definitely different types, and one isn't superior to the others!

 

To each their own, etc etc.

As I like to say, it's the holy 'Your Mileage May Vary but Each Opinion is Equally Valuable' rule.

Warning: This probably belongs in the sound-science subforum (Click to show)

PSA: Opamp, "Muting circuits", capacitors, solder, resistors, or anything else you'll find on a PCB that isn't a high or low pass, will not alter which frequencies can or cannot be produced.

Haha definetly. I just think alot of basshead newcomers *think* they are type 3 but may be type 1 or 2 as i turned out to be. Because all i heard from a crappy skullcandy pair was crappy distortion filled farts in the low end, i thought i needed a ton of bass for the bass to sound good. Just add quality and the perfect amount of quantity will be found lol.

I think I'm a 1-2 hybrid, and will buy a #3 can in a year or two for the halibut.

I see the "Thanks for that I'm gonna skip these" posts a lot on here.

The For Sale thread is filled with an "All-Star" lineup of Over ear/IEM/etc because the 'recommended" stuff didn't match the buyers need. It's a tricky business. (I have been a part of that myself)

Personal tastes are just that...personal. One mans garbage is another man's gem. Bloated bass....

What tracks? What settings?<<<<<<Even with that info it still comes down to tastes. 

 

I will never do or not do something based on one of your opinions. I will weigh it with others and if possible try it myself. Bloated, Bleeding, Booming, Subdued.....these are words. The meaning depends on the speaker. That matching the listener is a possibility at best but not a given.

 

I know you both as posters and respect you both.

 

I'm just saying in general. Nothing beats the ear test. Your own ears.
