Yeah, i have some problems too. Its a love hate relationship.

The treble is a little metallic and occasionally painful. Never, ever, ever use it with an amp with high output impedence. The mids and lows are nice though. I want to get my hands on an XBA-30, apparently the treble is much better.

£900 and it's affordable?

I need to find a good pair of IEMs for on the go. I'm trying Bowei's AKG K422's and every on-ear headphone I've tried, including this, hurts my ears after a short period of time.

 

That and the K422's leak a bit too much.

Didn't know you were on Bit-Tech. That was a surprise.

 

Edit: You're on bit-tech. You shouldn't be complaining about what's affordable and what isn't after seeing all of those ridiculous mods. tongue.gif

They even make a CIEM specifically for anime OSTs called the Monet, as the company president is purportedly a big anime fan. It's tuned to sound bright and airy, emphasizing female vocals. Unfortunately sales of the Monet are restricted to Japan, and FitEar's other CIEMs are only available in Japan or countries with a Jaben outlet. You'll need a lot of dosh too.

Heir's CIEMs have very fine craftsmanship, but they end up costing quite a lot once you start going crazy with options like wood faceplates and gold glitter dust. The 4.A has more of a reference-type signature, while the 8.A is very warm and euphonic. I really like the 8.A, but personally it wouldn't be my first choice for the genres you describe. I'd go for something with a bit brighter tonal balance and better sense of air.

I don't have experience with Unique Melody, but they're pretty popular, so that's always something to consider. I'd also recommend looking into a company called Rooth.
Gah, the Monet sounds awesome...
Maybe when I have infinite monies someday and can go to Japan, I can buy it? tongue.gif
Personally though, I'm not sure an airier sig would be something I like, even for anisong. It seems like its already mastered pretty poorly with the highs being out of control on occasion. I also like my bass in music.

UV resins shouldn't be too hard to get my hands on.....
Ooh, niceu!
You should find out which drivers fitear uses for either its Monet or 334... Or just use what frogbeats C4/heir 4A use, I believe that's already known...

Heh, there's never a topic here... Then again, there isn't just one thing to talk about, this is an anime, manga and Asian music thread after all... Not the psycho pass episode 19 thread...

Ditto for most DACs and amps, unless the noise floor is audible and / or they don't drive the headphones loud enough.

 

Cables don't do squat.

 

The secret to the superiority of vinyl albums lies in the fact that they're not compressed to death like most digital recordings.

 

Tube warmth is 2nd order harmonic distortion that can now be completely done in software.

 

A healthy dose of digital signal processing (parametric EQ, de-essing "poor quality" recordings, HRTF processing to improve spatialization) can do more for the sound quality than $10000 on equipment.

I get up to use the restroom and by the time I get back there are 200 new pages to read. More of a chat room than a forum thread. tongue_smile.gif

Hm...I think we had a discussion awhile ago about whether this is a thread or just a chat room secretly masked as a thread. tongue.gif

My current home setup. You can't see the AD2000X because it is hanging off the side. I want to get a headphone stand for it soon like I have for that W5000. :) Trying to simplify.

Anyone appreciate Rurouni Kenshin as much as I do?

Watched the live action like 8 times already..

Read the entire manga (at work lol, in about a week)

And am now rewatching the anime series just to try and get over this phase I'm having. blink.gif
