Anywho these audio tips are like the wide bore versions of the Sony Hybrids so they are indeed a great alternative and it's no doubt great to have around.

 

Hmmm interesting updated impressions of those Piston vs. the MH1Cs. Kinda disappointing to say the least. :popcorn:

Are you using disappointment to shield you from the hype? :tongue: 

 

They're just $30...

 

you know, like the sonys?

 

when it USED to be that way? :(

Meh i don't need them, just saying they seem to be falling short of the hype is all. :ph34r:

 

Anywho does anyone know if applying a thin layer of foam/ filter over the nozzle of an iem will tame treble peaks/ sibilance a bit??? Cuz with the auvio tips and the silver rings these DN1Ks bests the M200s for me, clarity wise was the most obvious, but the treble can be slightly peaky/ bright on higher volumes. Nothing on the level of the CKN70s nor the JVC FX40s but still, just want some tips to tame them a bit, no pun intended. :tongue_smile:

 

When i used foam driver covers for headphones it tends to bring the treble even more forward with more brightness in my pass/ limited modding experience so... not sure if it's the case with iems.

Cardas vs. Doppios ????
post #20749 of 32858

The Cardas and Doppios don't sound anything alike.  The Doppio's won't give you the bass of the Basso's either.  Lets wait for drblue to give us that ZA goodness comparisons though.

Just a quick post, just for fun pulled out the Pistons and the Inearpeace, Pistons ain't bad, good coherent picture bass solid, vocals clear. IEP, though, anotherclassricher, more detail. Again PisPistons don't have to hide their heads, good sound for the bucks, could listen to them and enjoy, but not close ImO to IEP (which have really opened up,, enjoying them much

My Heaven V is starting show the Aging already because I've been using them so much.  

 

M200, VAging quick comparisons.  Surprisingly the Aging sounds almost as big but the instruments and vocals sound closer.  Bass is faster, doesn't reach as deep as the M200 but has better impact due to it being faster, punchier and precise.  M200 sounds a bit airier but not as focused.  Instrument separation is very good on both.  Love the high-hats on the M200's with the song I'm listening to.  The M200's sounds slightly thicker and bass does protrude in the mix but not so with the VAging.  Both are absolutely lovely but for those who find the M200's to be a little bass heavy, the VAging cures that without being bass light.  It's definitely not bass light.  VAging has crispier treble, more energy.  I was comparing it to the Sony H3 the other day and I absolutely loved them both but the H3 was sounding romantic and the VAging sounding more lively with more energy.  I am finding the same sort of conclusion with the M200.  For guys like ericp, Wayne and Dsnuts who basically own all the phones that I own, these will be a change in sound that is very welcoming.  These even don't remotely sound like the Doppio's.  An excellent mix of dynamic and armature.  These are a hybrid sound without being hybrid.

I heard the h3s as being a refined and better version of the m200s. Does it sound lush like the m200s or the h-3s? I know for sure the h-3s and m200s sound pretty intoxicating (though imo, the h-3s does a better job of it as it controls the thickness, unlike the m200s. I think it's because it has a clearer midrange than the m200s).

 

Great comparison btw. Makes me want to get them to compare the m200s and h-3s.

I find the H3's to be the refined version of the M200's also.  M200's keep up quite well to the H3's though but I'd vote for the H3's without hesitation.  I think the armature drivers on the H3's benefit over the dynamics on the M200's for that added clarity.  I find the FAD's to be more involving but not as lush.  The FAD's have the thickness but it's not as laid back as the other two.  Hard to explain.  It's a faster presentation, more forward but not too forward.  Midrange is closer than the other two but it doesn't slap you in the face to get annoyed.  FAD's make a nice compliment to the H3's and will give you that top-tier sound in the mid-fi category which isn't far behind the top-tiers.

Both are quite spectacular and will sound totally different enough to enjoy both.  Might as well keep on that spree and own both.

Great impressions Danny - really gives me a feel for the FAD's. They sound FADtastic :)

The TH-7BB should be here first thing in the morning, which means they'll get here before I wake up, so hopefully I'll have some first impressions for you shortly after I get up. Looking forward to them and how they compare to the ST750 & Philip L1. smily_headphones1.gif

Totally agree on all accounts. Sony has outdone themselves, just as kef, FAD, and other audio brands. :)

 

:beerchug: Can't wait to hear the future jvc fx850 comparison danny! :wink:

post #20760 of 32858

I don't wanna think about buying the FX850's vlenbo, but man those will be tempting after knowing how the FX700 were.  Thankfully the FX700's didn't fit me all that well so I won't be as tempted to get those.
