Neither is a bass monster, but both go really low (no bass emphasis I can hear). Both detail well, W40>W4.
That's it for now, go for the dog walk/random iPod play walk...


That's nice that they improved on the SQ. I thought the SQ may be the same as old ones, only cosmetic changes.

Small comparo of the NE700X and Pistons.  

 

NE700's have a little more mid-bass and Pistons have a little more sub-bass.  The differences are small.  Bass sounds better on the Pistons.  Vocals are slightly more forward on the 700's but sounds smoother on the Pistons.  Treble sounds smoother on the Pistons as well.  These actually sound real close to one another and the differences are small.  The Pistons have bigger stage.  I am preferring the Pistons as I a/b these but both are too close to call.

I think it does and I believe Ds thinks so too but he'll have to chime in since I could be wrong.

Hmmm this is certainly an interesting development. Wouldn't it be trippy if they were made/ tuned by the same OEM but these Pistons uses that SUPER DUPER rare material (take that with a grain of salt) whiles those Nuforces has that titanium driver coating or something along those lines. LoL :triportsad: 

 

edit: Oh forgot to ask, is the metal housing the same size for both iems???

Yup they do sound very similar. I wouldn't be surprised if the FR on both are about the same. They even have similar style housing.

 

The Pistons does have a bit more smoothness overall to the sound and the Nuforces have a touch more forwardness to the mids but otherwise very similar sound sig.

NE700's are easier fit since the housing is longer for me but here's the pics.

So I see the AX30 and AX35 have finally made it to shore in NY. Hope they make it Chi by Tuesday or Wednesday. We're close folks. The a hybrid showdown between the AX30, AX35, DN-900, and DN-1000. No, I will not be comparing the H3 with those, so don't ask. Different level. 

post #20924 of 32905

That will be a fun showdown.  I bet dmarco will be interested.

DannyBai I've been so closed to buying the Heaven V, but I'm like I can't justify buying another earphone until I sell some things off. Really will become issue when the FX850 and TE-50 become available.
