Indeed Sir Kova indeed. I remember the year I knew nothing about Chinese New year or was informed long before joining here, all my Pokemon toys took easily 2 months.

Hey Ds... how are those Doppios compared to say, the Rocket R-50's? I'm guessing they probably are a bit fuller than the R-50's with a hair less brightness at the expense of just a bit of high treble resolve. Or, that's what I'm wishing for haha.

even with a change of pads, the re700 doesn't have its treble recession fixed. :(


I used the esw9 lambskin pad.

 

Weird thing is, the pads of the re700 have three layers of foam under it. When I switched, the mids were closer, a bit more sharper, the highs didn't change, and the bass was weaker.

 

This is confusing...:(

At the 60 hours point the Pistons sound quite awesome, especially vocals. Bass is great too, but the mids do take the cake.

Definitely a step above SHE3590, probably equal or superior to Carbo Bassos.

 

Too bad I will probably never listen to them after the burn-in - the wide barrel makes my ears hurt.

Never heard the R-50s. Don't know if Danny or Ericp ever had them..To be honest I am new to the dual ba realm but not so new to Zero Audio tuning. The Doppios are clearly my most detailed iem. They astonish every time I hear them..Wish I could send everyone a pair just for being on the thread.


That gives me an idea.,next time Nuforce gives up a DAC for me to review I will request that all my friends on the Discovery thread also will need one as well. That is how I roll!. Hows that!.

Man I knew that the alias was IEM Magnet! He always seemed to be at the centre of arguments. There has been much more arguments in this thread since he started posting in it imo.

Hi everyone, think I read pages back that someone talking about the FAD Heaven V. Hoping to hear some thoughts about them and maybe some comparison. Thanks in advance.

AUDIO TECHNICA - RE700 IMPRESSIONS

 

I've had more than enough time to listen to these headphones, and all I can say is yowza!!

 

I enjoy most of the SQ that it provides, granted, there is one glaring problem that I find in this headphone, it might just be me since the fit matters a lot on some headphones, this might not be an exception. Let's get to it.

 

Starting from the lows

 

Lows: IT IS AMAZING. IT almost has the same thickness as the ws99, and surprisingly, just as tight! It's just as tight as the beloved ws99 cans, and it has enough quantity to put the es700s to shame. The quality and amount is better than the es700. The impact, punchyness, texture, and rumble is great on these headphones, though I believe the es700 may have the same type of impact, only, these do it better due to the tightness. :)

Drums sound pretty awesome with these, listening to x-x islands right now, the drum hits are impactful, detailed, and best of all, full!

 

Mids: The vocals do not take center stage in this headphone, in fact, I'd go as far as to say that these have a well balanced lows to mids combination. The voices are....not the same as the es700 surprisingly. It's not as forward, and it loses some detail that the es700s had. It's smoother than the es700s, more natural, and the vocals feel a bit distant, though not recessed. To provide an example for this, imagine the es700s as the male who sings right at you front and center on the GROUND. With these, you hear a beautiful woman's voice in the air, not that far from you, but you hear that the voices have flown above ground level of the headphone's drivers.

 

Vocals are not as thick as the es700s, but still pretty thick, the vocals have that magic that the es700s had, though it does it better as it is creamy smooth, not air smooth like the es700s. 

 

Highs: The treble is awesome, it has no grain that I heard from the es700s at times, and it is smooth...pretty smooth that I'd say it could be basso smooth, though it has more detail, clarity, and bite to it. Unfortunately, the trebles sound recessed as every recording, I had trouble hearing the treble, which disappointed me. I changed the earpads and whoah!! I found three layers of foam. 

 

 

One black

One White

One Gray

 

I do not know the significance of the filters, but I decided to leave them, though initially, I wanted to remove them. I almost did, but I remembered that I could just switch the earpads with the lambskin. Without the foam, vocals sound closer, highs still unaffected, and lows probably affected with weaker bass quantity. Now that I painfully replaced the stock earpads,  I have a placebo effect due to my tinkering. I feel like the mids and highs and lows are not the same, but it'll go away.

 

I do say that the highs  have the texture to beat the es700s though, but since I can barely hear it sometimes, I can't give much info other than the nice detailed splashes it gives, it's pretty much llike someone splashing on the water itself, though a lot smoother than it sounds. 

 

Here is the housing and driver size difference between my two beloved cans.

 

 

 

Earpads: COMFY, better than the es700's stock

 

Leather pad, it is comfortable actually, jant71 was right, but I was worried of the quantity of the padding as the es700s started to hurt my head when weeks passed.
