^ From the same fools that hyped the Schiit Vali, those anal mofos seems to know what they are talkin' about. :)

 

edit: mo' fun stuff. ;)

 Sounds like the hype train is leaving the station, and I'm thinking I need to buy a ticket?! FOSTEX TE-05? Call me :popcorn: interested.

Still got the SZ2000, monstrous bass and huge soundstage after 300 hours of burning. Might get the Npulse, already got the Pistons on the plane.

LOL.
I live surprisingly close to you O_O
I too take the Essendon line occasionally...

EDIT: I too have rode the hype train in real life :D

The original hype train riders.

Vocal pitch and slight variations in breathing, microdetails on strings such as the sliding of fingers on frets, and approximately how much force used by the artist to pluck the strings can be made out with ease on these.. Needless to say these have more than separated themselves from everything I own they have quickly become my reference for sound.

 

Sure a good IEM brings these things out more, but one should always be able to hear them if one's listening properly and the recording is decent. Hell, one could hear them in the days of cassette players and earbuds too.

That's the problem I have with all single BA sets I've tried as well. Unless you throw a triple flange on it and shove it halfway through your skull, bass is seriously lacking.

 

The FAD Heaven IV is an exception to this. Nice ample bass.

Gotta try Doppios!
...Or maybe the DN-1000.
HMMMMMMM

Before you quoted me pages and pages after my conversation, lets make it clear what I didn't hear 1Plus2 do and what I bolded in Dsnuts post. below.

There, it looks a little clearer now for the members wouldn't you say? rather than you making out I meant his entire post?


And now, you can hear it on cassette players and earbuds.... Oh my, this thread does offer some entertainment.

Oh, sorry if you feel misrepresented... but it actually makes no difference to my point. I doubt DS meant that you can measure the number of Newtons applied to the string, he was saying you can hear how hard it's being plucked. Which, as I said, has always been the case for those who listen carefully.

There was a dual BA Final Audio prototype floating around somewhere here, or am I wrong? would be interesting to hear that alongside the doppio.

By how much forced used, do you just mean the dynamics in the music? ofc music can't quantify the force used to play an instrument, but I guess greater force = louder music?

Man I'd love to demo some dual BA IEMs, never used any before.

I'm selling my dual BA's, though I think I've already sold them to a fellow head'fier?

Same here.

What's all this fuss about bass quality and stereo separation/detail?

It makes sense that BAs do in fact need some use before they are full on to what they were made for..Case in point. I let music play through my Doppios for the last 48 hours since I got them..

 

Do they change like dynamics? No..However they did change. I did notice some of the BA characteristics with a touch of brightness using the DX50 on open box. That is completely gone. The low end now has also filled in very nicely. Music is now fuller sounding a bit warmer. What hasn't changed is the smoothness and the astounding amount of detail.  Before where I can pick out what each BA was doing. Now both are firing with a seamless fluidity that makes these in ears easily one of the best sounding phones I have ever owned or heard. In other words. Running music through these actually made them even better than what I heard on initial listen.

 

The highs on the doppios is the best I have heard on any iem.. I can make out not only tone and pitch of a high hat note with distinct clarity but approximately with what force it was struck based on how much reverb there are. This tonality in the highs is unparalleled among anything I have heard. Guys we are talking about each hit on a high note having a slight variance in tone/pitch.. Lesser iems will not pick this type of detail up not even close, this type of detail is on every part of the spectrum and that got me thinking just how good these iems are.

Dang, these sound amazing. Since I've been on Head-Fi, a lot of my music preference has moved away from the likes of dubstep to music with female vocals, but I still listen to 'bass heavy' music from time to time. By the sounds of it if the Doppios had a bit more bass they'd be almost perfect for me; I love the way the Zero Audio IEMs look, they fit me well and even on the lower end models the sound quality is pretty damn awesome. 

 

My Pistons should be here within a couple of weeks as well.

post #18314 of 32875

Guys, do we have to create an account to place an order for the piston with ibuyyou.com. Also, will there be a tracking number to track the item if we were to choose free shipping. I'm asking because there's a note stating that we should check with our local post office to check on the arrival of the item or it will be return to sender in a month's time. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

quartertone already beat me to it but, the FAD Heaven series is your ticket. Your ticket at the low low price of waaaay more than most would consider paying for a single BA. But then again people paid $500-1000 for single DDs so it's cool.

If you want more treble presence, the Heaven A,C,S, SS. If you want something a bit more even across midrange and treble Heaven V, VI. A less colored one is supposed to be the IV, but I dunno, haven't heard it.
