The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 840

Cks1000 would be an upgrade to bassos. Does everything bassos do, but better
post #12587 of 32875

I'm sort of the reverse discovery person, instead of brand new headphones, I find ones going out of circulation that I like. I found the Audeo iem's when they were being discontinued and discounted (worth buying, especially if less than $100 imo). Just found another set of headphones that I'd actually had lying around for a long time, got them discounted and just recently opened them. These are the Marley Exodus phones, which are great sounding, and also great looking, not embarassing to walk around with (unlike the AT A900x-"I've got wings"- and similar hp's). Nice wood, nice leather, fine sounding. Got great reviews, don't know if they are being discontinued, but I've seen them <$100, even as low as $50. Don't need an amp, but sound lush and kick ass at the same time out of my ipod/National. Highly recommended!

true enough.  this is not about survival!  the Bravo Ocean w the upgraded NOS german tube on ebay is a totally self indulgent

audio desert that is like delicious ice cream or sorbet after a meat and potatoes dinner....creamhy silky sound totally

a treat to ones solid stated ears.....resist resist resist....oh and its blue...drblue

Better? Lol. I'll post some "actual" impressions later - too tired now. Got together with Nick N today and got introduced to and educated about orthos... lots of them! Our Nick is a mad talented modder lol, and his orthos sound amazing (he has a freakishly good sounding modded t50rp). Anyway, I digress...

 

What I can say right now about the X1's is that they are friggin amazing! (and that's before the prescribed burn-in). eek.gif

At any rate, I just got my X1's, and they sound stupid good. Amazing bass, and it is amazing how with that much bass, it isn't a mid-bass bloated mess screwing up the mids. Maybe the mids aren't forward, but they don't sound recessed to me at all. The treble seems just about perfect - never sibilant or piercing, yet with pleasing detail and extension. They sound clear, full, balanced and have a lovely soundstage. Overall just a gorgeous sound smile.gif

This isn't nothing my friend. Wait until you get a good 100 hours burn-in on them. Gets even better!

I think I'm gonna wait for more opinions on the Philips Fidelio S2 and Onkyo IE-HF300 and see how they fair. I'm not a mega bass head. I used to actively seek out Beats-like IEMs but I love the bass levels on my Carbo Bassos

Then you will need to get Nuts to get a pair of the Onkyos. I don't think anyone else has a pair of S2s in hand.

If you like the fashion stuff but I'd expect it to be slightly lesser sounding than something like the FXD's. Probably why no one around here is trying them, lol!

Not the kinda thought you were really hoping for as I don't have them but I like that they did what JVC couldn't and made a mutli-driver with the micro still in the tube. JVC pulls them back in the housing when more than one. Also think the Kelton isn't the better approach for earphones than this or the AT approach, i.e. having an open chamber(or two) with more space for lows which also helps with the stage size/depth/immersion.
