Bought three pairs of headphones this week so far.

 

Yeah, same here, and that's what is stopping me from going for this. Gotta stop the bleeding at some point lol!

I know what you mean, but I'd kick myself for missing any kind-of deal. Especially one that can be flipped for me. I'm hoping to get the Duos or SP51P; giving my fiancee the M11P+ if I get those and selling the M9P.

Pretty much what I would do as well.

Something weird happened with the 385s. It's only been 10 hours of burning in, but the bass is already tighter and feels a lot harder. That isn't the weird thing though. I swear that the treble has gotten sharper instead of smoothing out. The mids are still about the same, but that treble is starting to get pretty pitchy. I would describe these as being very punchy in the bass and quite sharp in the highs. I still can't believe how smooth the mids are with how heavy the lows & highs are.

Hmmm interesting developments. How would you rate their highs, is it as peaky and well extended as the JVC FX40s. Is there sparkle to them or are they just bright/harsh/ sibilant???

wow, those m-duo's look gorgeous.

Haha, weren't you the one that told me if I wanted to avoid buying more IEMs to leave Head-Fi and never come back? Lol

I'm really having second thoughts about this MEElec deal, considering I've already ordered the Zero Audio Tenores and about to pull the plug on the Vsonic VSD1 tomorrow as well.

That's over £70 just on earphones this week. redface.gif

Heh, it has moderate extension. Definitely not in the same league as the JVC headphones, but I do remember being impressed with it's range for a bass-emphasized headphone.The treble has become more bitter. It's not unbearable to me--read: FX40 has taught my ear to be prepared--but you can definitely tell that their is an increase in the brightness. I've yet to notice any sibilance from them. The treble originally had a bit of sparkle.

The mids are still as recessed as every, not in the super excessive way, but with the degree that the lows have tightened up I would say that the recession is going to be short lived. I'm thinking that Glorfybe was right when he said that the headphone--after burn-in--was almost balanced. The keyword here is almost because I know that there is still going to be a bit of bass emphasis. The unique thing about them is that each spectrum really holds it''s own with it's own form of sound: the mid-range is quite smooth with that tad bit of dryness; the highs are responsive and sparkly; and the lows are just tight and hard hitting. Each have their own sense being and instead of feeling like only one spectrum would benefit from a burn-in I can safely say that I believe they will all become more refined.

Oh, and Mochill was right about the sound stage! I was listening to some live tracks and felt like I could have actually been at the concert.

EDIT: I should throw this here too. I am a tiny bit worried about the QC over at 385 Audio. A friend of mine ordered the headphones as well but his sound a bit more muddy in the mid range and the bass, while tight, isn't as tight. Still sound worth the price but nothing spectacular. He's already contacted them about a replacement and they are in the process right now.

I'm glad that someone else thinks they are - almost - balanced, I thought I was going mad!.

 

I was just about to post that we have two drivers to burn in not one, so may evolve at different rates - but you have that covered.

 

The Quadlons at there current stage of development sound better than the Xears - Xears over did the sub bass and they are slightly veiled when compared to the Quadlons.

 

I would bet we are listening to the same iem, one with a detachable cable and the other not. I would also guess that Xears did some of there own stuff to the 4core (own shells to start with) and possibly upset the balance, unless you really love sub bass!

 

Did you get any foam tips with the 385s? - if you did, don't use them!

With postage to the UK it was £13 - got to be worth a go very_evil_smiley.gif

Yeah, that's the thing that deal has going for it... only twice the price of the pint I'm drinking right now. Ps it tastes good, but I can't say much for it's SQ!

Plus, why would you do this when none of those IEMs except maybe the Duos would actually be worth keeping since you already have great gear ;)?

Thanks, guys.  Unfortunately, the RE400 at $99 is more than I'd like to spend.  I'm going to buy Danny's CKN70s.

I know HiFiMan was selling RE0s for 49 bucks if that's closer to what you want to spend.  Limited stock, maybe even out of stock by now, but it's worth a look.  Etymotic EtyKids are also around 50 too, but have two small things you should keep in mind, they aren't loud and may be too bright for many.
