Like I said, you're picky! ;)

 

Just kidding. Maybe I should have said that you have stringent requirements for what works best for you (which isn't a bad thing).

 

It's good that you know what is important to you.

 

Which is ultimately why you might be best going with the bassos again.

Well, I still think that you should be adventurous and try out the KC06's (or upcoming KC06A's). But Mackem, you are just a weeeee bit picky, so if you like the bassos so much, you should probably just get another pair!

Just a

bit huh!

 

Bassos are so last year! Time for an upgrade.

No no no - I stood corrected on that one... I think "discerning" would be the appropriate terminology!

Hey, if someone knows a way to predict which iem's/headphones will fit well, and not have other sound issues (if you don't have access to listen to them in advance), please share, would be of great benefit wink.gif

I discovered something for myself and maybe it will help others here. I've always had dynamic based budget iems (the fanciest being the xb90ex) and even though I liked them, there's one thing none of them could pull of quite perfectly and that is the base frequencies note weight in this area. They always sound awesome, but tend to make base a bit overbearing. Even the basslight m21 had this tendency. It had little base, but still managed to make it sound a little unnatural. I noticed that in this regards earbuds are a bit better, but they have zero isolation... So I kinda get a feeling BA driver will be the way to go for me. maybe I'm missing something, but still...

post #23829 of 32864
God...best sound I've ever heard from the Senn 650's...worth the wait, imo smily_headphones1.gif



Good enough to make a grown man cry L3000.gif

Well hark at you Captain Sarcasm..

post #23831 of 32864
No sarcasm, you'd save me a ton of money if you had the way to know that in advance. Read about so many headphones to die for on this post, only to find they were a poor fit, didn't do the same for me, etc. Fun trying out different stuff, of cours, but headphones come in so many shapes, designs, etc, and people's ears /heads /sound preferences are so varied, impossible to predict for sure what you love will work for me. Just sayin...

(for a good example, read the Mikros thread for a bit, then go to the For Sale forum and check out all the Mikros 90s being dumped there :-$

You should try out the ATH IM70, lovely plentiful bass but not overbearing on the other frequencies :smile: Mids are nice and forward, Highs are smooth, not sibilant at all. It's a nice smooth, full sound. They are a level or two above my CKN70's for me.

I would say just go with your instinct or flip a coin if you're really stuck :smile:

 

As the doctor said, it's very hard to know whether you're gonna like an IEM's sound qualities and whether it will fit you or not. Sometimes you just gotta go with your instinct and bite the bullet. If it goes well, great, if it doesn't, then you can sell them on and recoup most of what you paid for them :smile:
