The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1401

OK, Gare W40 about 12 hours burn in, still liking the sound, sit down later to A-B. TwinQY asked about the shapes/sizes of the W4 and W40, they look similar, I could see anyone taking one for the other just quickly reaching for them, but on close inspection, the bodies are shaped slightly differently, the angle of the nozzle is slightly different, volumes in the chambers seem slightly different. Seems to me this could account for different sound sigs, + crossover changes, tweaking. Didn't do A-B yet, later today maybe, just put on hi-rez Louis Armstrong/Ella Fitzgerald downloaded from HDTrax (to be honest, not sure if I really hear that these files are head and shoulders better than the cd versions, at least over my X3->National...maybe on the big rig stereo would be different. I have had this on regular LP, Mobile Fidelity audiophile CD and LP, it is fabulous sounding (mono), and it sounds fine over the portable rig, but seems hi-rez should be sounding even better than any of the above (maybe not LP, and that is probably the problem). Haven't A-B's this either, don't think I will, just sayin. Anyway, sublime....And now, out for my dog walk/music discovery

OK, back, had a nice walk, muscial and otherwise...pulled out the Amperiors, hadn't used them in a while. Really do like these cans, great, involving sound, not as comfortable as the Shure 1540's or some other over ear, being on ear, don't think I can do hours with these on, but they were fine for about an hour walk, still have them on.
So, music "Discoveries"...
A different type of fusion...




40's silliness, but with Charlie Parker on the job


More 40's silliness, I love the guys singing Ragg Mopp in tuxedos...

Last one for now, Ron Miles/Bill Frissel in there take on sort-of-a-blues (not technically, but feels like it).


OK, if I don't post (not likely), enjoy the game, GO BRONCOS!!!

Been rocking out my M-Audio Q40s recently with the Shure 840 pads. Got the headphones for £49 so can't complain at all. Still seeking that elusive IEM upgrade :D

I'm also very happy with the q40's. At that price they're a great purchase.

Certainly are. I had to mega stretch them out though for them to be comfortable and I mean I really stretched them out.

I've got a really small head so I actually found them to be very comfortable. After trying a lot of pads I ended up with the Hifiman velours on mine, I find them to give best comfort and sound. Might have to try the Shure 840 pads again since many people seem to like that combination.

I went ahead and bought the OM IEP. So from Dual Dynamic to Hybrid.

No, that could possibly account for those soundstage changes that you described. Are the diameters of the nozzles the same though, and if you can see, are the acoustic dampers the same as the W4s? (which I do believe are red by default but I might have replaced them since they look grey to me, if you're not comfortable taking them out though that's fine)

As a Niner fan, I want to see Manning take it. I think Seattle will win though if the get enough pressure on him consistently.

SEahawks up 5-0, booo
as for the nozzles of the 2 Westones, they are not identical, though the differences require looking really closely. The 40 nozzle is slightly longer, and I think it is very slightly thicker walled and wider (I wouldn't bet big money on this, though). Get through the game, try to listen to the Westones later (I'd usually use commercial time, but not supposed to even miss those!)

As another 49ers fan I am not liking what I'm seeing. Until the Broncos can start showing up to this game, I'll be listening to the Meelectronics Atlas I received for review and playing this damn addicting/frustrating game I just downloaded: Flappy Bird...
post #21013 of 32878
Sup with those Broncos, Ds? lol

Oh well, how about those Doppios!?
post #21014 of 32878

Game is horrible. Seattle is making the AFC look like a high school league. Would like to read more impressions about the Doppios. Anyone else here pull the trigger on them?

Percy Harvin! Seahawks killing them!
