For $70-90 they are wroth a try, if they don't work out for you, you can always resell without much loss.

 

But if they do OH BOI!!! :basshead: 

 

A MUCH MUCH BETTER option than tossing your monies into that Chinese Cheapo abyss tbh.

Possibly, but I cannot stand on-ears.

 

They still don't match the value of the M-80 that I picked up from Radio Shack for $40, and I couldn't stand wearing those. Gave them as a gift to my sister.

 

The Chinese stuffs is my specialty. If I don't try them, no one will.

 

Take a look at this bad boy that just came out a few days ago:

 

Senmai HD-900 ~$70

http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.1vBLdf&id=36528803387

 

and this:

Somic MM185 ~$50

http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3.w4011-3256831387.76.lqyKyS&id=36979108206&rn=39f9b881887822980c5bc433580fa1b5

 

They look far more appealing to me to try out. I also don't trust items being discontinued without a follow up newer item being announced.

HD-900s look like a pair of Somics MarvinGaye'd a pair of Sonys. Interest lasted until I saw the forks.

Well, not that they are technically better (and argument might be made for the DN-1000), but it gets down to a sound signature preference. I think the Doppios are wonderful! I think once you get past the first three or four (or first two groups in each section), the line become blurry a bit as to which is technically better, and we're relying more on sound signature preference then.

Doppios are great but a neutral sound signature, but the fostex te05 is natural reference 😎

I'm going to have to hit up the glossary, because I'm not totally sure what the difference is between "neutral sound signature" versus "natural reference".

Change to wide opening tips or Sony Hybrid type tips. A lot of small opening tips boost the bass on them, which makes them sound sloppy. The stock tips are sloppy with bass too.

I have some what I thought to be Sony Hybrid tips I bought on ebay.  I don't notice much difference in sound to the stock small tips, which I was using.  There is a big difference with the stock flange tips, but they lose too much at both ends and detail suffers too - in other words, not good in any way.  I'll chime back when I've tried the mod.  I'm sure I would be much more inclined to listen to these if the bass tightened up and the signature shifted slightly more favour to the upper end.

Does neutral mean that the frequency is flat at all recordings?

And natural as in the frequency is close to flat, but its balance changes according to the song? 


I still have no clue, and there was a debate about this in a thread before.

Aren't the Pistons of too low impedance to be driven from the Bravo Audio Ocean?  Some were saying it was a good combo a bit earlier in the thread.  I've got a 70ohm resistor adapter.  Does anyone know I would be better off using that if trying to drive them from the Bravo?

Neutral is flat across the frequency and natural is how you would hear it in nature 😎

I don't hear nature EQing stuff that often 😉

Not sure if the TE-05 is natural or what but I believe mochill also describes the Cardas ear speakers as natural.  Both sound completely different to me so they could both be natural in different ways.  Either way, he's right about the praises he gives the TE-05's.  After 24 hours of burn in, these sound a little fuller than out of box.  Bass sounds a little more prominent but it's very controlled.  Better texture than the Doppio's and possibly more natural.  Midrange is fantastic.  Vocals have an airy presence.  Treble is quite extended but I haven't noticed much fatigue, especially today compared to yesterday.  The sound almost has an armature driver type of sound, it's that clear and clean.  Not overly analytical and flat, there's some warmth and I can enjoy the music.  Although I haven't compared side by side, this sounds like a baby TH900 with less bass.

pretty much describing the im-02s, lol.

 

Then again, I have no idea since bass is not that prominent, and I have no idea how the two compare.

 

Nice impressions Dan man! :beerchug: Glad to hear that they sound somewhat full, and that the bass texture is actually better than a double ba earphone! I want to hear the midrange now.... I know that the female voices on the im-02s are outstanding, and males don't get that behind it either...

 

 

 

I also found out...

 

the way you wear the re-700s can affect the imaging of the soundstage, as well as the mikros...

 

Pretty weird actually, I thought wearing it directly on the center of the ears made the imagery the same as the mikros, but it doesn't. 

 

I guess I wasn't wearing the mikros correctly either I believe...
