Now, it's all gone to thin air...
So, I guess Inks will continue to be a mystery to me
Welp i think i have figured out what that dood is all about. He is as anal and text book as one can get me thinks. The IEM/ said gear HAS to measure almost dead flat and sounds near dead flat in order for him to be considered as worthy or worthwhile buy.
It doesn't matter how amazing the said gear sounds in reality cuz if the graph is poorly graphed he will rip on them like there is no tomorrow. He is a true graph Nazi it seems and is "selective" or cheery picks all of the technical mumble jumble in order to support his biases. Everything has it's place and no doubt those fancy charts, etc, etc, etc is valuable but it sadly only tell part of the sound signature/ capabilities.
Oh and i have wanted to say this for a longggg time, i feel kinda sad for those that has been in this hobby but has yet to experience the burn-in phenomenon, i mean reality. For people that have had soooo much "expertise" and experience with iems but have never heard a said gear change in real time as the result of burn-in then they must have REALLY bad ears or is just too oblivious to what they are hearing/ doing. I mean not ALL gears has the potential to change for the better cuz it is dependent on the tech/ materials, but A LOT of the new gears today use very "exotic" materials that are crazy stiff/ never used before in audio gear history and when it is mass produced like that, it is difficult to keep the sound 100% consistent.
But yeah if burn-in was not real then why in all the aspects of this audio hobby, such as cables, diaphragms, drivers, etc etc etc people all claim that there is some affect as the result of burn-in???
