The discovery thread.! NEW Bette hybrid review by jekostas. PG 1972. - Page 1716

post #25726 of 30209

Well, I had the Pioneer DJE1500's for a couple of days but returning them because I can't get a proper fit to stay in place.  The cable is long and the memory wiring kind of sucks.  Awesome feature is that the housing turns to fit over ear or hanging down.  Too bad neither worked for me.  Sounds really good though with some big bass.  Doesn't beat any of my favorite sets like the CKR9-10, H3 or the FX850 so it's not worth keeping when I can't get it to fit.  Definitely worth the $150 price in sound.  Some of the best staging I've heard to date.

What the  FX850other cable didn't work with it :)  ?

I tried that cable, Oyaide, H3 and the eBay silver cable. Smallish housing and sort of an odd design just didn't work. 850 cable was the best but those huge connectors get in the way. I tried my best with it. I'm sure it will work fine for others.

Anyone know anything about this company. This amp looks like it is in direct competition with Fiio's stuff. Might be even better. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-new-Cayin-C5-Stylish-Portable-HIFI-Audio-Headphone-Amplifier-/121401846940?pt=US_Home_Audio_Amplifiers_Preamps&hash=item1c441d2c9c

Which of the findings discussed in this thread recently would you recommend to a lover of forward sound, slightly on the bright side, detailed and transparent enough, but also with a decent bass for rhytmic music (but not overpowering), with energetic guitars and lively vocals, up to the point of beint "screamy"?
The major point is forward, "in-your-face" sound and intimate soundstage, with a feeling of being "on-the-stage" with musicians.
Zero Audio, Ostry KC06, Heaven V, maybe JVC FXT90?

Indeed. I hope this amp is all that and a bag of tricks. They have shipped my Cayin C5. Can't wait to hear this amp. It has some stiff competition from my 2step and ICAN but if it is playing at a similar level as these two with even more power on tap.. I will be smitten.

Thanks for trying Danny, I am enjoying the heck out of mine but your right they won't be for everyone for various reasons. I found fit worked vest with UE tips for me.

I am hopeful then android cable will sound as good as the original with better ergonomics plus mic.

The bass is pretty impressive though while still sounding good everywhere else and yup love the staging.

We're pushing the budget here, but the Westone W40 has great soundstage, clear, open sound and fine details, and puts you in row 1 or 2...that upfront staging that was of interest (personally, I'd prefer to be row 10-15, but if you like that kind of sound, think this is one great iem)smily_headphones1.gif

Yep that's a properly tuned dynamic driver.  I'm a believer in Pioneers now.

yeah, now that amp looks like it will be a definite upgrade to the sound if I add it to my DX50 :) and the price isn't too steep... looking forward to your impressions and comparisons.

I've read Ostry KC06 sounds like a budget version of CKR9, would you recommend giving it a try to get the idea of Audio-Technika signature?

Would it have "in-the-face" and other traits I've mentioned I'm after?

The KC06 and CKR9 have two different signatures. The KC06 have less bass and brighter highs in comparison to the CKR9, which has a much warmer signature, more bass and smoother highs.

The KC06 is "in your face" type of sound.  The CKR9 will have much better bass, same forward vocals but is smoother and treble is a big jump in the CKR9's.  But, the KC06 would be an excellent budget companion if the funds can't afford the CKR9's.

What about FAD Heaven V?

Looks like my candidate #1 for the moment, since I liked FAD Heaven VI very much.

Not sure how it would compare against FXT90 and KC06 though.
