The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1130

post #16936 of 32862

My amperiors cames in. I'm really digging these punchy little bastards. Like I'm in love with them. My ears get sore after about 3 hours of listening, but I dont care. My favorites out of all my recent purchases so far are the amperiors and the gratitudes. Next up, a nice set of open backs. I'm considering the HE-400's on black friday for $299.00. What say you guys? You guys are batting a thousand in my book regarding recommendations.

Can the H1 compete with your xba3 D's? I'll get one if they are better.

Technically the XBA-3s are superior..IT would be an upgrade if bassy iems was your preference but if not they are not an upgrade. They do however amp much better than the XBA-3. There is a fullness to the H1s that makes them have more meat to the sounds especially the bass as you could guess from a dynamic bass driver. For guys that enjoyed the XB90EX the H1s are a step up from that sound. I think the only real upgrade to the XBA-3 will will probably be the H3s which I will find out soon when they are released.

yes, they are excellent.  pretty flat frequency response, but its all there and very musical for non basshead music.  lack of sub bass emphasis makes non ideal for ddm, but

for folk, jazz, straight ahead rock, they are stunning. powerful large drive gives totally coherent image.  i got mine for 179.00 so look for prices below 200, a great deal considering

list price was up near 600. very well made, but plastic instead of metal like ex1000 flagship.  head to head comparison on head-fi w video had 7550s being preferred over the ex1000

for enjoyable listening due to trebles being more pleasantly tamed on the 7550.  highly recommended.

Thanks D! I'll wait for your H3 impressions then.
Cheers!

Agreed-recently got the Martin Logan Mikros 90, Beyer BT1350, and these Amperior babies, like them all, all have somewhat different presentations, may be getting the Onkyo over ears (ordered it, but the site is telling me the one I ordered, with the super high grade cable, is out of stock, deciding if I should go for the regular one). The Senns have a "jump factor" that the others don't, an exciting presentation (very different than the laid back sound they seem to be known for on the 650's, for instance). A little like the AT 1K's in this 1 aspect. I keep promising to do a comparison, still plan to (life is busy-work, show this afternoon, family, especially keeping up with this thread and the Deals thread), get to it soon, I hope...

Also been considering this Black Friday sale stuff, HE-400's in the "affordable" range, 500's will also be on sale, be less affordable, all the stuff being offered and on my wish list from this cockamamie site is making my head spin!!!

MAKE SURE your head spins clockwise!  "so many headphones, so little time".....

btw, i recommend you wait for the high grade cable version unless you that cable is upgradable late..

adding zu cable to headphones makes super difference positively  if possible though... might have to

hear those senns cause i find 650s accurate but dull presentation.... if you call Amperiors "babies" you

seem to have special affection for them......but are Mikros90s "honeys"??

Panasonic-RP-TCM125

 

Have these been discovered??

 

Wirecutter has named these the new Best IEM under $30. The previous best was the Monoprice 8320 (I got the 9927 black, while I liked the sound, it was so uncomfortable). I initially got one black and one white one to gift for $12 each. Gifted the black and decided to keep the white for myself. After initial listen, I can sense a really nice sound with good punchy bass and well-represented mids and treble. Comfort is great with a small housing and an oval nozzle. I normally use medium tips on other IEM, but use the largest on the Panasonics.

After hearing these, I bought 3 more (a purple, a pink, and blue) for my 2 goddaughters and godson for Christmas.

 

The black ones are now up to $18 from a seller on amazon but the other colors are still $12.

They're all my " babies ", though you could definitely say the Senn is exciting like a boisterous child, while the Mikros is rich, smouldering, full sounding, a more " mature " presentation, if you will, so the analogy fits. Gonna go take a cold shower now... Ahem.... :-D

Yes... you just discovered them! They look like the real deal, and based on your impressions, they are the real deal. Nice!

You never know. For $11 they are worth a shot.

post #16950 of 32862

Ok, from the MDR 7550 to the UE900 lol... they can be had at ncix.ca for $199.

 

Anyone have experience with them? I read a_recording's review (and video) which stopped me from doing anything spontaneous:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/679046/comparison-review-the-quads-westone-w4r-vs-logitech-ue-900-vs-sony-xba-40

 

Not sure that this would work for me either:

"Upper mids are de-emphasized, however, resulting in slight veiling. Female vocals especially seem less intelligible compared to sets such as the HiFiMan RE272 and Shure SE530."

And beyond that, I don't need them lol! But, there is a lot of hype about them as well.
