The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 1626

"Just had to pick up my jaw off the ground!!! Got today a package from Penonaudio (the ONLY place to get your headphone gems!!!) with... SIDY DM2. 

 

Had only a few hours of burn-in, and it's already mind blowing.  Don't even need to use black (extra bass) or silver (upfront mids) filter duct - they do change the sound, but it becomes either too sub-bassy or the opposite way with a complete removal of the bass.  Red filter-duct is "golden" together with included audio-technica eartips - perfectly balanced transparent sound with amazing crystal clear details, even with some bass enhancement extended down to sub-bass and fast punchy mid bass, great treble details, no sibilance, clear/detailed mids (vocals sound amazing), wide front row soundstage (much wider than average).  Great build quality though a bit slippery due to the shape (all metal housing).  Great cable, no microphonics, but surprised there is no chin slider.  The only concern is a short strain relief by earpieces.  But everything else is perfection.  I know, it's a new toy hype :)  I will be working on my usual review for XDA, so will provide a full review link and will post detailed pictures in a few days.

 

So far, I'm very impressed!!!"

 

"IM03 sounds a bit fuller and richer in tonality, overall a little more detailed.  Though DM2 sounds a bit thinner, we are NOT talking about night'n'day difference.  If anything, with a red duct-filter it's almost like a scaled down version of IM03.  OK, we are talking about triple BA driver IEM with a removable cable design and sturdier build that cost $300 more. So if you put things in perspective, single dynamic driver DM2 is an AMAZING value with a FANTASTIC sound.  The only negative is a short strain relief and narrowed down toward the end slippery body (which at the same time contributes to a great acoustics of wide soundstage).

 

I wasn't sure what to get, and Penonaudio guys actually recommended this one to me.  That was an excellent recommendation.  If you think about it, SIDY => DIY-Sound with all the customization you can get from different tips and duct filters."

 

"Silver line cable version.  The soundstage is definitely wide...  I had probably 4-5hr of burn in with pink loop, the sound just gets better, tighter.  Using red filter and supplied large size AT eartips.  I'm very impressed!!!  Can't wait to get a second opinion, from you ;)

This is exactly a sound I was looking for awhile.  I love balanced sound with some bass quantity - this one nails it.  It's not too bright, a bit warm but not too much.  Perfect separation of lows, mids, treble.  Very detailed with a wide soundstage where I can pin point every sound.  Definitely sounds natural to me."

Wow, that really sounds interesting. They have a version with a mic as well, which is a big plus for me. However, that version had a totally different cable.

 

Quote:
With mic version is 1.2 m 64 core OFC oxygen-free copper double shielded anti-brushed TPE environmental can withstand 20KG pulling.
 
Silver Line Edition uses 18 core silver wire, double insulation material TPE ,the skin is environmental wire.

Does that mean that there will be any difference in sound? Or am I good to go with the mic version?

Cool stuff - thanks! I'm not sure if this is the exact same track, but it sounds like it might be a higher bitrate (and it sounds a little more "banging" :)

I'll check it out, bit it's probably a remix if it's from Oakenfold. I've only recently discovered him but the guy's work really is amazing.
