No other headphone or IEM allows me to lose myself in my music like the Heaven V does. Not even FAD's own full-sized Pandora Hope VI could match the Heaven V in this regard, despite coming close. Even after reading about all the amazing things said about the H3 and FX850, the only IEM that I still crave to get a chance to listen to is the Heaven VI

 

 

Well, I own and love the V, but I think The TE-05 (with extensive burn-in) is about equal in performance with the FAD, just different flavors. Each does something better than the other. In the V, it's the magical mids. In the TE-05, it's the bass. I hear them equally. And with only a brief listen, I put the Pandora above the V (by the way, I find the VI quite comfortable as expected. I just need to fix the slide before it become an issue).

Yeah I agree that it comes down to personal taste. As a mids lover, I feel like the Heaven V is definitely superior to the TE-05. I also like Heaven V's bass more, for some reason it just sounds more organic to my ears. I think overall the HV just has a more lifelike sound, the TE-05 sounded too thin for my tastes.

 

Overall I agree that the PHVI is better than the Heaven V. I just prefer the HV's mids slightly more than the PHVI mids. I also like the sparkle of the HV in its treble a bit more. The PHVI is more smooth, so again it comes down to personal taste. I really miss my PHVI though, that was one special headphone.

I was going to ride the V-Moda XS or Don Dolphin hype train, but someone just sold me a pair of Monster DNA Pro's like new for only $77 usd. So looks like I'm about to ride the DNA Pro hype train instead. Let's see if it leaves the station.

I was going to get the JVC HA-FX750 but from what owners have been saying the size of the housings would probably be an issue for me since I wear my IEMs straight down and have small to medium-sized ear canals (Canals are relatively small, actual ears are huge :P)

Got my new Ostry KC06's in today. Got the Gold ones so I would 100% know that they weren't from the original defective batch like my first pair was.

 

They are downright amazing. Much more bass than my first pair. Needs more hype.

Seriously get on it guys

Wait for the 'A' which could be a flop, or go for a verified winner?

Why does the mystery of the unknown usually win?

"You can take this money now, or go for what's behind door #3!"

Trivial decisions are my kryptonite.
Emergency situation with split-second decisions? Easy.
What to eat for dinner? Impossible

On a purely technical scale, the IM70 pulls ahead. But if ethereal, beautiful vocals and mids are your thing then go Heaven IV. Honestly you can't go wrong with either.

Have both, did a quickie comparison...listened to a bit of All Time Low, alternative,high tempo. Heaven V clearer, wider soundstage, more detailing, nice clarity, all better than AT. To these ears, though, bass and drive of AT much better, overall, thou,Mathis quick round goes to Heaven V.

Is there a thread dedicated to these? I wouldn't mind reading a few reviews!

Probably not since only a few have gotten the 750s, everyone's getting the 850.
