OK, my burn-in alarm tells me I officially have a kazillion hours on the Shure 1540's, gonna wear them for sound/distraction, and as (great) earmuffs, as I go out to shovel (once again). Just started listening for a few minutes...soundstage is crazy wide (especially for closed cans). Got Bird on (shuffling the songs, David Bowie->Queen->Charlie Parker so far (of course, no soundstage on Bird, mono recordings, hear the ride cymbal really nicely, Bird's tone is great)
Start burn in on the Ohm's, then the Piston's...maybe only a Bazillion for these. Gotta set up another burn-in station...
Later

Whoa. How long has it been? Wait, only just four days. And IEMagnet's been banned? I'm gonna read back, but it's good to be back with Wi-Fi.

After 84 hours of burn-in, no further changes in the Piston - I think it's time to stop.

It's as good as Carbo Basso, and it's a great achievement for an IEM under 30$.

If its as good as the Basso... at $30 that is impressive! I got rid of the Basso because having the DN-1000 seems like a bit redundant. But if one doesn't have the Dunu, the Basso is a must have! That makes the Piston a must have as well if you don't want to spend the extra $$ for the Basso. Well done Xiaomi!

Hmm, I am listening to an interesting Bluetooth headset... Starting out with some dubstep to see how it handles

DAMN IT DOCTORJAZZ, this song is too good for my re700s. That bass line...those female voices...it's getting to my heart... :'(

 

Nice find man, nice find. I love this song, keeping this in spotify. Speedy piano play too, with those impactful kicks...

There's also a Japanese page/source I can't find handy to link to ATM.  But I did have this one handy - it's been in my RSS links for quite a while!

I know Aretha plays piano, I think she's playing on these, but I wouldn't swear to it.

Its too early to say, but these are some promising Bluetooth headphones

Have to say, it's really not a "find" on my part...this is basically the music I grew up listening to.
If you think I'm "out of control" in the headphone acquisition department, it's nothing compared to my music acquisition over the years. (I'm basically a horder/enthusiast/collector/obsessive). I have approximately 6.000 LP's, 3000 CD's, maybe a terabyte of music on hard drives. Still buy LPs and CDs, some hi-res digital downloads, always looking for new sounds.

Nice tune - thanks doc!

 

Spotify. Canada. Don't mix dammit! It looks like there are ways to beat the system though...

OK, listening to my well broken-in Shure 1540, sounds really nice. Really wide soundstage (I always add "for closed headphones", but I think it is just wide, though Senn 650 may be better in this regard,haven't A-B'd them), full bass, vocals/mids very present. Still think highs a bit rolled off, but i'm beginning to think that different perceptions people have of headphones may be related to fit much of the time. I have a small head, think they aren't really as flush against my head as they should be. If I push them in to be more tight, sound changes appreciably. I suppose this is where people benefit from changing pads, may be something to try. I did try bending them a bit at the middle, but I don't think they have much give there. Really nice sounding cans, good recommendation DS!

What waynes said is true, it's a tune, :P my fault doctor, nice collection you have so far (from your previous posts).

 

And if all fails waynes, you could always use rhapsody....

ok never mind.

 

Maybe google music could help though.
