The discovery thread.! NEW dweaver's take Pioneer DJE1500 PG 1710! sfwalcer's take TTPOD T1 PG... - Page 1032

Thanks  folks-haven't heard the XB-30, what I've read here is that it is a slightly upgraded XBA-3, better materials, maybe somewhat tighter, think it is somewhere in the Discovery thread, sure other places as well. Glad you liked the tunes, don't forget to study for the test, counts as half your grade :wink_face:

The part you don't see, with the tip, is small indeed. So small, I find it difficult to get a seal in the ear canal, and the round outer chamber doesn't allow you to push it in any more. Wide tips help some, Complys help some, still not completely comfortable for me (I'm in a minority here for sure, but, could be someone else who feels the same). They are nice when a good seal is acheived (lots of comments on that in the thread). I may have to go back to Ety's...along with the Tenores, the easiest fit for me. (found them unreliable, though, just died on me...also hate the filters).

Dr Jazz, it seems the RHA Team has responded to someone who was also having fit issues (post #183) on the MA750. Maybe you could also contact them to see if they can help you with yours. I think it's good their support team scours the forum and steps in when someone isn't getting the best experience with their products.

EDIT: I was going back through previous posts to see if it was the MA750 you were having issues with but it might be another IEM. So, if that's the case please disregard. But for others who cannot get a comfortable seal with MA750, check out the thread I linked and contact the RHA support team to see if they can help.

So are there any IEMs in the same price range as the Carbo Basso with a similar sort of sound signature but perhaps available in the UK or have better build quality (No driver flex etc.)

Thanks d marcO for the link and also Dr Jazz for the thoughts. Got some idea now. It seems that a lot of retailers are offloading the XBA3 with the upcoming new replacement model. Wonder if it's still hang around with current new offering and discoveries. Looking for some opinions here as the XBA3 can be had for a attractive price now. Thanks in advance.

I played with tips for a bit, settled on some Monster tips. Next, I think my GR07's have some channel imbalence, the L side seemed quieter than it should be (wasn't dead, though). Now, having said that, seemed the 750's KILLED the GR07, more alive, wider, both have detail but really enjoyed listening to the 750's MUCH more, even trying to take all the above into account. GR07's kinda flat, boring in comparison (BE probably meant to fix this to some extent).

Do the 750s kill the Monster Gratitudes as well?

So it's not a headphone discovery, but today I discovered an instrument that blows my mind called the Hang and I've been looking for music made with it.


 

And here are two hanghang being played along with other instruments.


I... really want... more than one. What an incredible instrument.

Haven't directly compared them yet...given my preferences, I'm guessing I'll like the Monsters more, but won't know for sure till I listen to both for comparison. (all my opinion, of course)
