The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1460

If I get a good fit with an iem, I generally find them more comfortable to wear than over or on ear phones...on ear put pressure, over get hot, etc. I can fall asleep with a good iem in, and often do. Full size phones are able to do things sonically that is harder for iems. Tend to use iems much more.

Okay, I have to say that the V is like my dream "mids-focused" iem. I know the V is not meant to be reference quality, but it's sort of what I wished the RE-400 or RE-262 sounded like. I love it!!! It's also what the ATH-CKM500 only dreamed it could be like. Yummy! 

 

As for reference, those of you who like that sound (but with a little bass kick) will love the TE-05.

Great impressions on the TE-05 guys. Can anyone compare it to the meelec a161p? Thanks!

It's gotta be much, much better. I hated the A161p after awhile.

HOW ARE THE AD900X for electronic dance music?? is bass enough? how do they compare to the A900x?

 

^ i don't listen to much electronic dance music but for hip hop/rap these have just the right about of quick, tight, punchy bass for me. Even their sub bass extensions goes pretty deep as well, but not really that full/ textured but for a completely opened back headphone these are damn sweet across the sonic spectrum.

 

Masa' WAYNE listens to lots of trance and owns these AD900Xs as well, so he might be able to chime in. And i have no idea bout the A900Xs cuz never heard them before. 

 

Do take into account that they are bulky as hell and the wing headband system is goofy lookin' and is kinda loose so there might be some potential fit/ comfort issues. For me they are pretty good in the ergonomics department, but the cable is thick and kinda rubbery which is made worst cuz it is not detachable. Not really a deal breaker though since many full size cans are like this.......

I haven't heard the A900X. Lately my go-to open cans for trance/EDM are the X1's. I haven't listened to trance/EDM lately with the AD900X's, so just threw them on and "Lost myself to dance" courtesy of Daft Punk. If you are all but a bass-head, I would have to say that the AD900X's have enough bass - in fact a surprising amount imo. They do benefit from good amp synergy. I find with the E12 amp and it's nice sub-bass-boost, the AD900X's bass is tightened up, as is the over all imaging and control. Listening to Daft Punk and trance with them is very satisfying. Because I am a quasi-basshead though, I do gravitate to the X1's for trance/EDM due to the X1's massive bass (for an open can), more recessed mids, and treble which is a bit more forgiving - the more V shaped sig works well with trance/EDM, and gives them more depth. But, the AD900X's really are quite excellent, and really excell when vocals are at play (that's where their more forwards mids shine).

I haven't tried it yet, but apparently you can use a rubber band to pull the wings closer together, and that supposedly makes them fit tighter. But that doesn't help with the looks! Doesn't really matter though, as these aren't ever going to be seen out in public. +1 on the cable... drives me a bit nuts. Now that I'm not a noob, I won't again buy a headphone that has a long cable unless it is detachable.

 

Anyway, I really love the AD900X's for watching movies (moreso than the X1's).

The fake pistons had no bass and were hollow sounding.

 

Here are side to side pictures of real on the left (ibuygou) and fakes on the right (inshoes):

 

Barcodes were different

 

Font is clearer for the real ones.  Fake ones have darker font.

 

The order of the tips is different.  The pins that hold the tips are thicker on the real ones.

 

The real ones have clearer wording.

 

Real ones came with thicker stock tip.

 

Real ones have bigger opening for the stock tip.

 

Real ones have mesh closer to the edge.  Fakes have mesh recessed.

Do you have the directions backwards? It seems like in your pictures, the real ones (from iBuygou) are always on the left and the fakes are on the right.
