post #18571 of 32858

does anyone know what kind of driver is in the fostex te-05?

post #18572 of 32858
So I've been A/B'ing the OM Audio IEP and the KEF M200. Now the biggest difference I get from them is this...The OM Audio has a much wider soundstage with more transparency. More spatial, but with very little intimacy. The M200 has less soundstage, and is thicker, lusher, and more intimate, forsaking transparency and space.

Which sound sig do you prefer?

But good question though............................

It's made of the finest sheep skin, with very breathable membrane and plenty of elasticity for that perfect fit..I mean sound.

Which phone suits your signature the best? OM or KEF?

true. but trying to decide between pledging to the aurisonics kickstarter or waiting until next month for the fostex. thought the driver specifications might help a little.

^ yeah i was a bit curious about those rockets as well, but didn't jump on it cuz those things weren't that great looking to me. haha Though they seem to be built like a tank so makes for a sweet beater set. If they live up to the hype of some of those early impressions then it might be really worth it for the initial price of $99.

 

BUT you know what, i am sure they sound different enough to warrant buying both. :evil: Cuz ya' know one is built toward a more consumer friendly on-the-go type of sound while the other is more neutral audiophile one. :)

I don't know? Listening to the OM right this moment, and they sound so up front and detailed. These are very easy to drive, and so in your face. Then I kinda like that laid back, thicker but no less detailed sound of the M200.

That's just the final two promo tunings. By release date, there will only be one available tuning. Either the audiophile tuning or consumer tuning. The exact one still undecided. Exact same thing is going on with the Fostex.

Yeah, I really like the sound sig. of the M200's, but unfortunately the fit and seal got to me. Too much of a struggle for me.

Word has it that some of our good buddies have dove in both feet on them new doppios. Hmm I wonder why  :ph34r:.. I eagerly look forward to more impressions of them.. 

 

Heys guys I am gonna post this because it is a great test track for detail..

 

 

Ceelo sangs about Saturday night. Can you hear the crowd in line? This clip is not gonna be the same as a CD version of this tune, If you guys own this album. Listen to this exact track with your best in ears. If you can clearly make out the people in line of the night club you got some in ears that can pick up micro details. If your in ears are really good you will be able to pick up the people in line twice.. One of my test tracks for detail. Even though it is only a part of the background of this track. The crowd that is in line at the club can only be heard with phones that can pick up the full detail of the track.. Give it a go and see if your favorites can pick up this little detail.

In the coming week, I'll try and reconcile my love for dynamic drivers and their natural timbre, warmth, and smooth sound v.s. The detail and resolving power of the BA driver.

im-02, kef m200, and the xba-h3 pass this with flying colors. I hear the line twice, but I hear an intermittent chatter + laughter three times during Ceelo's description of the woman he met.

 

 

Try this for vocals, ear pleasing, smooth, and euphonic female vocals.

Thanks sf, and I have to say, Eric was right on the money with the h-3s.

 

I say it's like the kefs, but a lot better in clarity, smoother bass than the m200s (Though it also makes the bass sound muddy, but not that much really), and the highs...you have to buy these just for the highs to be perfectly honest. The best, crisp, yet not silibant like the im-02s are (but then again, the im-02s sound silibant on some recordings just like the h-3s also sound silibant in some of the others I've heard), and man, the soundstage is immersive.

 

The sound is thick, and timbre is pretty awesome. Similar to the m200s, and better than the im02's. I wish I had the doppios...

 

Edit: I Hate eric for not hyping the h-3s enough, I would have killed the postman for not delivering the appointed time that amazon claimed it would arrive. 

 

jk!

 

Drums and bass, though, sound better on the im-02s and kef m200s as they aren't smooth as the h-3s, but I don't hate the h-3s for that, as it is a unique sound I haven't heard of.
