A little update on the doppios. For science sake I don't know if I was a believer of BA burn in but if you guys think about it. It makes sense that BAs do in fact need some use before they are full on to what they were made for..Case in point. I let music play through my Doppios for the last 48 hours since I got them..
Do they change like dynamics? No..However they did change. I did notice some of the BA characteristics with a touch of brightness using the DX50 on open box. That is completely gone. The low end now has also filled in very nicely. Music is now fuller sounding a bit warmer. What hasn't changed is the smoothness and the astounding amount of detail. Before where I can pick out what each BA was doing. Now both are firing with a seamless fluidity that makes these in ears easily one of the best sounding phones I have ever owned or heard. In other words. Running music through these actually made them even better than what I heard on initial listen.
The highs on the doppios is the best I have heard on any iem.. I can make out not only tone and pitch of a high hat note with distinct clarity but approximately with what force it was struck based on how much reverb there are. This tonality in the highs is unparalleled among anything I have heard. Guys we are talking about each hit on a high note having a slight variance in tone/pitch.. Lesser iems will not pick this type of detail up not even close, this type of detail is on every part of the spectrum and that got me thinking just how good these iems are.
Vocal pitch and slight variations in breathing, microdetails on strings such as the sliding of fingers on frets, and approximately how much force used by the artist to pluck the strings can be made out with ease on these.. Needless to say these have more than separated themselves from everything I own they have quickly become my reference for sound.
Damn, I don't even remember the $1300+ 1Plus2 hybrid unit being able to do that.
Certianly some discovery you've come across there, Dsnuts.
