post #20476 of 32910

just picked up a pair of skullcandy titans for 8$ at marshalls, these things are terrible, even for that price. wtf im hoping the mduos and fx3x on the way are better than these. not sure if its worth the gas just to return these trashy phones LOL. read reviews that said these had punchy bass... where?!?! unsure how this company got popular.

What does a long burn in do to the pistons?

I fixed it, but didn't follow what you said, :p

 

I made it more refined than the tacky, get link and post it here. :wink:

 

Thanks for letting me know, I felt awkward putting it there like that, but I was lazy to fix it. Now I did, happy? :D

This is what I am hoping for. I notice new items after a few months on the street always go down in price..That being said. The Doppios were sold for a few weeks at $130. Which is an amazing price given their SQ..

 

It is interesting the guys say the IM03 and IM04 has less clarity to the IM02.. Which actually makes sense. Less BAs in the housing would equal better clarity but at the same time don't have the same full ranged sound of more drivers perhaps.. My Doppios are cleaner sounding over my H3 as well but they fall short of the H3s large fullness and scale of sound..A give and take I suppose..

 

I have my H3s in my ears listening to Megadeth/ ICON.. :eek:!!!!

Yeah, google play music all access.

 

It's not, but it's going to grow, :D

 

Hmm. Google play music might end up working well for me. Thanks!

Bass becomes tighter and more refined.

post #20486 of 32910

Less BA's doesn't really mean less clarity Ds, just like the Heir audio phones with more armatures have more clarity or the W4 has more clarity than a W3. It is implementation and tuning.

 

The IM-03 and IM-04 are seemingly tuned like others that can seem a bit thick like the Earsonics phones depending what they are played out of. With stage monitor equipment they become more flat and clear. The SM3 was not so great out of certain consumer players. They like more juice out of "pro" equipment but phone and MP3 player amps are more picky. Easy to see the IM-02 sound better or clearer comments and they are valid but then you need to take in to consideration what is behind them in the chain to figure out what you will or might get in your own situation. 

 

Of course the new IM-03 an 04 aren't going to be much better than the CK100 or CK100PRO. Not enough margin to still have a certain synergy and still like either of the older ones better as far as SQ. Using them out of consumer stuff the older ones will have cleaner sound and I can certainly see a set up built for them also sounding thick and somewhat congested with the newer triple and quad models. I personally have no issue with which model anyone perceives as better.

 

The Primo 8 sounds like a better choice for the CK100PRO crowd as far as a possible upgrade.

Your right I suppose implementation is more key to perceived clarity and detail..I think you might be right about the Primo 8.. Those might be a clear step up for mid fi stuff..Can't wait for more impressions of them. I am gonna see if I can get a review pair myself.

Sometimes I envy those guys who leave head-fi for a few years to happily enjoy what they have. Then when it's time, they come back and have a whole new level of audio goodies to choose from and get blown away by. And, they didn't have to spend the years in between in a constant state of lust lol.

Beautifully clear and smooth, and then the treble augments everything up the wazoo. Even if people are adverse to treble for that reason it's still worth a try if not for the absolutely polarizing experience of a hallmark phone intended for that particular sound signature. Just wonderful clarity. Everything technicality-wise is pretty good but gets overshadowed by the clarity. Definitely a strong love-it-or-hate it phone.

 

If under any other guise of perfection, the upper-mid and lower treble peaks would be unacceptable, but if you don't perceive it as a live-at-home-with phone and just accept the experience for what it is, it rewards you greatly. Also two peaks - very easy to EQ out, still very clear without them. I can't suspect the THD to be very high. I'd still try EQ even if one's adverse to that sort of stuff, just to understand how it is with and without.

 

Of course the asian/chinese earphone community gushes over them (those who have them) but then again they're trained to be resilent to all things treble I swear. This is one of those cases where I appreciate them too, but from a different perspective.

 

The build is aces, too. My first pair was a bit abrasive near where the cable enters the strain relief - but then again, that was an used unit.
