post #91 of 191

I wondered if addressing them to selenium would even make it to you. I'm just glad we are not on CNN headline news right now!

She almost didn't give them to me. Probably thought it was a biological weapon or something.

And so is the price to performance ratio

Very much so.

I'm finding it harder and harder to believe/relate to reviews :(

 

It all comes from me getting the TFTA's and now reading how you guys rate them.

I understand everyone has different tastes, but the 1V's have bass, but weren't mind blowing bass.

 

I compared the 1V's directly to my Denon AH-C710's.

 

The c710's = the 1V's in almost all the aspect, except:

-710's came with a carrying case

-1V's bass is not rolled off

-cable on 710 is thinner

-1V's cable tangles easier

 

Apart from that there wasn't much in it, and again the price was almost identical:

£90 = 710, and £100 for the 1V's

Would I pay £10 more for the TFTA 1V's hell yes, and more.

 

Now putting it back into context Sel's review:
You compared them to your MTPC's - I haven't heard them, but I have had the MTPG's.

 

I found that the 1V's beat the MTPG's in almost every aspect.

The sound stage, agreed, the MTPG's have a better, wider sound stage, but then again the MTPG's were very narrow sounding to my ears, whereas the 1V's sound "airy" and open.

 

MTPG's bass didn't really have much of an impact, granted it was there, and granted it was punchy, it didn't really make me feel I was listening to that bassline.

MTPG's are my 3rd favourite earphones that I have ever heard.

But this is mainly because of the "extras" it came with, the warranty policy, the look, etc.

 

In terms of comfort too, the MTPG's were very heavy and fatiguing to my ears - with the strain relief this was easily rectified. 

 

My favourite earphones, are of course the 1XB's.

Which in reality, put any earphones that are "bassy" to shame.

 

If you think the 1V's had bass, think again.

 

Interesting to read people's opinions, it's only surprising to read reviews like that, when I have them in front of me and think greatly of them. And whereas I can't relate to other reviews that compare these to GR07 etc, I can very much compare them to the MTPG's, I actually got rid of the MTPG's after I got the TFTA's. I even found my 710's did a great job, especially at their price vs the MTPG's

Pardon me for this question, but do you find that bass is all that matters to you in headphones??

Due to my music taste, and my general preference for music, my earphones and headphones even sound system have to have a good bass punch to them.

Saying that I sold my Denon AH-C751's because they sounded too plain, boring, and didn't have enough highs/mids.

 

MY TFTA's not only have mind blowing bass, but clear highs, yes they aren't as "clear" as the se535's but I don't need that, nor do I want my ears to be pierced my high spikes, like on the EX700's.

 

Comes down to taste.

I can't really speak on them versus the Golds because I've only heard the Golds briefly. FYI I didn't think the Golds and Coppers sound so similar that you can just substitute one for the other and all the same things apply. Going to the Coppers from the 2V1Ss is like one of those cold medication commercials where the actor is all sniffley, and the picture is in black and white, then they try the medication and the "veil" is lifted. Everything just opens and and there's more room between the instruments.

 

I'm not saying they're bad earphones or anything. Just that they don't compete with my "bassy" high-end IEMs. And in the limited A/Bing I've done with them versus the Turbines they weren't exactly winning via TKO. But I plan to compare the two a while longer.

Lol basshead.gif, did you get a proper seal with the golds @ Dubbed man ,with the correct seal and proper amplification from my solo srg2 the golds have tons of bass , head ace inducing bass when the volume is turned up for a long listening session, my Miles Davis are even bassier ,i still have not amped up the tfta extra bass as i hate to think what the bass would be like .

 

From what i read on this thread it makes me wonder if the 1vs use a different driver to the 1xb or just not tuned as well as the 1xb they have a lot more clarity in the mids and treble than the 1v have been given credit for here .Yes they are not as bright as the coppers in the mids  but they are on the bright side of neutral anyway

MTPG's were good enough in bass, but what I hear MTPC's have less bass than that even - I wouldn't call that a bassy high-end...

1V's are brighter than our 1XB's

Of course YOU wouldn't call them bassy. You're used to these bassmonsters for pete's sake...

I had in the folloiwing order:

Denon 710

MTPG

TFTA

 

I wasn't ever used to them, I only got them after the MTPG's disappointed me.

I remember saying:
These are not worth £180/200, but for £100, ok.

 

Then came along the TFTA's and boom, out goes the MTPG's
