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...
They probably burned them in already before releasing them. You never know...
