Thanks Ds, you are the one to give credit for this purchase. These really do match extremely well with my SRH1540 when switching back n forth...

 

Finally found the IEM I was desperately searching for...

Ya they get more awesome. H3s are the type of iem that slowly but steadily grows on a person.  You are actually cheating as your not supposed to throw those on a big amp just quite yet. Lol. Don't blame you for doing so however.. The H3s are a permanent part of the collection for certain..

DsNuts what did you think of the Heaven V (and VI)? For some reason I think that you've heard them. Thanks.

I used the chorus of Lorde Royals (about 45 second mark) to test bass quantity, since it goes so deep.  Pistons have the most by far, followed by Tenore, then Fidelio S2, then Astrotec AX30, then Teac ZE-1000 (the least by far).

 

Fidelio reaches lower than Tenore, but Tenore hits harder.  Pistons, Tenore, and S2 have deeper sounding bass than AX30 and ZE-1000.

 

I tried many tips on AX30 and found the Sony Hybrid large tips to be the best for bass.  AX30 sound more analytical while Pistons, Tenore, and S2 sound more musical.

 

After 200 hours burn in, Mikros 90 bass is not as deep as Pistons/Tenore/S2, but quantity lags only slightly from Tenore/S2 and is more than AX30.  I would say Mikros are more musical than AX30 but less than Pistons/Tenore/S2.

 

Tenore are still my favorite because of the super wide soundstage (3D sound!), balance, and natural life-like sound.

Haven Vs are crazy good. The mids on the Vs are special and great bass to boot. Very musical and organic sounding phone. I like them a lot. I was very much tempted to place an order but with my bday around the corner I wanted something new. It was a toss up between one of the IM0X phones or the FX850.. You all know where that money went to but ya, the smoothest full sounding BA phones I have ever heard. They don't sound like BAs. Which was pretty shocking when I heard them. Ultimately I was happy with my Doppios enough to where I wanted a departure from BAs., which was another reason why I went with the FX850.

Ok, so I've been commenting on Kanye West, and hadn't even listened to the album I have (never claimed to, had posted it as a random track I heard on my iPod on shuffle and really liked...but it was a discovery of sorts). So, after all the commotion, decided I'd play through My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, an album I bought because my 20 year old daughter was in love with it. So, album is Freakin great, can't always figure out everything he's singing about, but it's gripping. Gotta go online, find the lyrics written out, though I suspect they don't follow straight forward narrative. Ordered Yeezus, which was on the top of many Best Of lists las year. The things he throws together are amazing! collaboration with Bon Iver, CRAZY as my daughter would say. As a jazz loving, middle class white guy who's probably older than most of you, gotta say great schitt!!

I took a listen and think that section bottoms out at like 45Hz which is basically where most popular music bottoms out in recent memory.

So I briefly A/Bed the ckn70 and Doppios, and I was right. There is more sub bassin the Doppio. And it's a better detailed and punchier bass. As a matter of fact, the imaging, clarity and separation in the Doppio slays the ckn70, and I always thought the AT was very good in those categories. So I see why I love the dual BA of the Doppio so much now. And still, the V is another level too. Funny how the TE-05 sounds very hybrid-like, and the V BA (and Doppio to some extent) sound very dynamic-like.

Go a few tracks further on Pure Heroine and you'll find some lethal sub bass.:wink_face:
