The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1044

1+, Tenores definitly good iem for price, Gratitudes big bargain at current prices, More detail in instruments, good bass impact, roundness (but not execessive), just more "there" there

post #15647 of 32903

Or, to put it another way, have both in the draw next to my bed, must reach for the Gratitude 10x more than the Tenore (maybe/likely more than that, don't have the exact statistic, but you get the idea)

Looks like I'll be getting my friend the Gratitudes, thanks for all the input you guys! :smile:

post #15649 of 32903

GRATITUDE to all those who praise the Gratitudes.  Mine are still burning in, 

but im excited to hear them vs the Tenores....

Any thoughts out there on Beats-like headphones that sound good? As I mentioned earlier, seems to be between the Noontec Zoro and the Phiaton MS400, any other options/recommendations?

Don't see much about these Shures, true. I actually own them (the regular, not the Ltd), had given them as presents to my daughters, they both preferred the Meelectronica A151, for what it's worth.I thought it was a nice sounding iem, nothing dramatic highlighted by them, but did no wrong, either from what I remember. Were a bit wide/large, think that's what my girls didn't like.

My daughter loved the sound, hated the look...has to sound great but look like Beats (don't want to be Big Geek On Campus). So, I got them back this morning. Her birthday is coming up, looking for a set with iPhone control. Thinking of Noontec Zoro, Phiaton MS400 was mentioned as a similar (but more expensive) option. Any thoughts out there?

DrBluenewmexico,

Not sure if you saw this, was in the middle of all my silliness, copied it again.

(it was my older daughter, who was in from college for the weekend, went back today, sigh...)

Just another note...the Panosonics from Best Buy, really nice headphone. Bass on these is incredible! Not overbearing, mid-muddling bass, but round, just right amount, not having to listen for it, not having to listen around it, great!!! Nice detail as well...soundstage not huge (they are closed), but hear details like what is overdubbed on a track! Clean, won't knock you out with some dramatic aspect of the presentation, but just sound right. Pretty cool set of phones...

Which Panasonics? I saw two new models the other day that looked really interesting, one a sort of rectangular thing and the other a very clean simply styled round cupped thing with what looked to be rubbery pads. Forget the model #s

post #15655 of 32903

Sorry, brain lock on my part, not Panasonic (not sure how that popped into my head) but Pioneer HDJ-2000, recently on sale Best Buy, not sure of the status at present there. (really bad, as I'm wearing them around my neck as I write...time to get the rocking chair ready.)

Lol!

For those DJ 2000 Armaegis has a neat mod for them if you are curious.

I imagine the Dynamat would work in lieu of the black sheet.That white stuff was replaced with fuzzy porous velour.  If you want either let me know it's the exact stuff I sent. Interesting anyhow whether or not you do it.

yeah might be but I recall them seemingly rounder on the edges. I'll double check tonight maybe Thanks! they were up the road at a store I might have to see if they are to be put on the listening wall soon.

 

Look at this description too.

 

" Built with the innovated biotechnology cellulose vibration board, as a result, a high rigidity and lightening are achieved, and the movability of the vibration board is improved."

 

so vibration board, is that bad translation for diaphragm?

 

Boy these things can take up to 1 watt of input power technically...

 

Might have to check these out, aside from the colour there.

looks like they are going with that 15 degree wearing angle for the cups. I have that on a couple older Technics-made isodynamics, find it to be a great fit that way for some reason.

most cans these days can take 1000mWatt so its not too uncommon most cans recommended here take more my MX10 for example can take 1500mWatt and the sony cystal pollimer headphones can take 4500mWatts now that is power handling
