The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1454

Oh sh--! Let the hype train start pulling out of the station!!! 

 

I have the V and TE-05 in. I decided to try the TE-05 (fearing it would be my least favorite of the two and two thin in sound for me base on DannyBai's thoughts and this reference sound quality talk - love the RE-400 for example, but bass is too thin for me). I didn't go for the stock tips. I instantly put on the UE900 tips that I had on my H3 (with me today). Decided to hit these nice looking babies with some lossless Miles "So What" out of the DX50.

 

Well wow!! The sound is quite nicely full to my ears with plenty of bass! Not basshead bass, of course, but a great level of clear bass that is full and rich. I have to say mochill hit the nail on the head too. He described the TE-05's sound as being like a hybrid sound (BA mids and highs with a dynamic driver for the bass). I agree with him. And this has more bass than the Doppios, which I felt opened up nicely with bass. Out of the box I'm very impressed with the TE-05. vlenbo, you're in trouble my friend. 

 

Now I will take a quick listen to the V, but I'm loving the TE-05's sound out of the box!

I'll probably get the DN-2000 if there is significant upgrade in the sound though (the DN-1K are great though). Plus, I'm happy with the DN-900, AX-35, and AX-30. And the TE-05 and V should be in the mail room, so we'll see how some of these neutral do me. 

 

 

 

With the DN-1000 gone, the JVC 850 and/or P7 are on the radar, but more than like the JVC. I can't see the P7 out performing the HP50, although I love the B&W brand.

 



What will I be missing if I opted for the DN-900 instead of the DN-1k? I am interested in a BA/Dynamic hybrid but limit my budget $150. I'm also considering the Sony H1. Thanks.

 

 

Better bass and highs extension in the DN-1K. The DN-900 is tuned totally different from the DN-1K. The DN-900 is mids focused. There is also better imaging and instrument separation in the DN-1K ( for example, guitars seem to float in their own space with the DN-1K).

Aren't those essentially the same as the M-Duo which at half price is a little cheaper? I think the M-Duo is still half price somewhere :)

Bought a supposed stated "new" set from an 3rd party seller on amazon, but i think the order was fulfilled by amazon though and those mofos sent me a used set with the box all old lookin' but that god the cans were in great shape. Called them put and got a $25 store credit instead of returning them which is a pain in the arse to do cuz have waited like more than one week for them due to slow @ss shipping. A total of $63 for my Logans now that's what you call slick. bigsmile_face.gif

Oh any good news on the Sennie front??? wink_face.gif
I signed up for Prime + Amazon CC. I get cash back on amazon purchases. I live off of that site. lol I got my money's worth on Dec alone last year. Ordered about 100lbs worth of speakers w/ free two day. biggrin.gif

Looks good so far. They already charged me for it and the status is "Preparing for Shipment". Hopefully, I'll get a shipped status this weekend. wink.gif

Okay, have the V  are in my ears now. I see the V gives narrower tips and wider diameter tips. I'm using the wider large diameter stock tips. The V sounds a bit thicker, more refined, and more mids focused as DannyBai told me it would, but the bass is almost equal to my ears. The V may have a tad bit more bass, but not much. The horns are much yummier in the V. Both are detailed, but I think the TE-05 may win in details (I need to burn both in, and expect more changes in the TE-05). From memory, the FI-BA-SS was warmer and fuller in sound than the V, but there's an echo of the FI-BA-SS - to my ears - in the V, although they don't sound anything alike. Yes, I'm loving the V's signature, but I don't know which one I like best yet between the TE-05 and V. Both are fantastic. If the V's bass is deeper, I think more details are in the TE-05's bass (if that makes any sense).

No specific date up the site outside of the usual time frame they put up. I did sign up for email notification when they come in. They might tell you if you email them though. Can't hurt to ask.
