Insomnia earphone listening lesson last night:'

 

Stayed up a good part of the night listening to Phillips TX2 and comparing them to ATH IM50.

The ATH were great a first after about 50 hrs of burn in, with assertive vocals and good bass.

But treble started being annoying and sibilant and had to stop listening after a couple of hours

and put them back on burn in bench.  However could clearly hear the ATH sound i adore

coming out and see their potential.  seems like a long range winner, esp. at that price point. after

all my CKS1000s took 400 plus hours of burn in to be optimal...crazy...i just saw one of the FOD

earphones, the Ostry KC06 were marketing with the slogan of "no burn in necessary".  wondering

how they are doing that and if it really is true...

 

Successor in my insomnia audio mania season was the 60 hour burned in Phillips TX2.  they were

much kinder to my ears and kept me up for 3 more hours listening on an LG tablet with no external\

DAP or amp through Poweramp.  Very musical sound, which rounded off the harshness of the mp3

files and made the lyrics clearer than the ATH IM50S and conveyed the core of the musical communiction

well, with excellent pace and rhythmn...vocals not as silky as Tenores or Singulos, but had a significant

virtue of all around musical adaptiveness...Broken Bells sounded coherent and the crazed electronica

that Dangermouse mixed in with Shins frontman James Mercer worked very well, better in fact than more

expensive phones like the On-1.  It was a case of less is more, less detail and dynamics in the TX2 but

better overall gestalt of the musical experience.  i could hear the meaning of the song and the lyrics

were clear in a really new way.  Seems like this is the trend in mid fi budget phones (50$ range) lately,

such as the Narmoo S1s etc, TX2,   quality all around sound, competent capable, but no stunning detail or sparkle.

Really good for tablets, smartphones, etc with no amplification.  not exactly "hi fi" but not low fi. serve a purpose.

sometimes a good one for late night listening.  

 

but its dawn and I'm back to my On1s listening through the VALI and  a 20 watt Cambridge audio model 12 preamp.

way more detail and dynamics and glorious wooden vibrations.  

 

I guess i need to invest in in those JVC 850s to go to the next iem level of the sound i seek, although the HOPE VI are calling

my name also...
