Yeah, good luck with that.

You want something with a bit more neutrality but just as musical with a silky smooth sound  ATH-IM03 with upgraded cable.. Something with a taller fuller sound with the best vocal rendition on the planet with even more lusher bass? ATH-CKR10.. Something more reference in SQ with insanely great mids and one of the best 3D layering of sound.. Nuforce Primo 8

Do you find the treble extension of the Doppios equivalent to the ER4 or HD600...or maybe better?

 

I have seen some Japanese reviews translated of course mention a comparison to the Etymotic ER4s.. The only phone I owned out of the bunch you just listed is the GR07. In comparison the Doppios don't have any sibilance at all but has a similar amount of treble energy, doesn't quite extend as much but don't need to be to have a solid amount of extension here. From memory the treble has better clarity, depth and definition but is way more sensitive over the GR07 so a proper source matching is necessary.  The strong suit of the Doppios are their treble and mids. The bass is actually done very nicely as well but is not the main part of the sound that is emphasized so guys that love their bass need not apply. ...Treble does extend very well and has clear authority without being harsh or too edgy. I made the mistake of trying them out from my ICON dac and it sounded horrible because of probably a higher output rating than the Doppios allow for.  12 Ohm sensitivity means they will need a very low output to sound their best.  My Geek Out and it's .47 Ohm out and bassier sound signature throws the Doppios into overdrive and sounds like a completely different earphone all together in a good way. Still one of the best sounding from my Geek out actually.

 

Treble extension I find fantastic. I have heard smoother treble in the Primo8 and IM03, both costing way above the Doppios however, Doppios  has one of the best analytical type treble presentations meaning detail and clarity is absolute.  It will pick up every single nuance in your recording in the highs and with a crystaline clarity that is among the best in ears I have owned. I know there was reports of the sound being lean and that is true when using the stock tips which does nothing for the sound. .Must us wider bore tips to open up the sound for full potential,  mids of the Doppios is pin point accurate too a very nice wide open mid section that is also very detailed and precise as well.. Burning in the Doppios for 100 hours brings out the low end fullness and a bit over neutral bass end and balances out the sound.. I honestly think for the going price of $120 or so on Amazon Japan it is one of the better buys..

I'm not exactly sure what changed, but a few days ago I was listening to them and was completely blown away! I wondered why they never sounded this good to me before! I plan on getting the Philips L2 in the future, but I'm worried about it replacing the AD900X completely. I don't really wanna own both, so I still have a decision to make.

 

Nothing wrong with rediscovering your gears. I find myself loving some of my older cans I have all the time. It is good not to hear a phone for  a while only to rediscover them again. That is always a good thing.  AD900X is one of the best Rock and metal cans I know in existence so that is not crazy that you still love them cans.  Get yourself a Singolos first and go from there. I know your gonna dig the Singolos.

Why Tenore and not Basso? I have been reading the thread of the Basso and Tenore, and dunno, the bigger, and bassier Basso sounds really interesting. Also it´s supposed to have better separation and soundstage, right? I´m so tempted to get one, everyone seems to love them

No, it other way round Tenores are better in seperation, soundstage, vocal, and even better bass than Basso

Hum, I´m usually not focused on vocals, but that would be nice. But, with better, what do you mean? More refined, tighter...

I´m just looking for something that i´m going to enjoy everyday, with an engaging sound. Gonna keep reading the Zero Audio thread :tongue:

Ya I like the sound a lot on the Primo8 but the value is not what we are used to here on the discovery thread. It is a premium earphone for certain but that cost is a bit rich. The cable itself is probably worth more than a $100 by itself..

True dat. 300-400 might by my upper limit for iems. I would however pay $500 for something like the Pandora Hope VI, still looking around for the IV's impressions before I pull the trigger

I picked up a pair of UE 600vi today and for their latest Amazon price of $44 they are an honest to goodness amazing deal. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Ultimate-Ears-Noise-Isolating-Headset/dp/B003YKG2UK/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1403313190&sr=1-1&keywords=600vi

We talk about 3D sound hear a lot but these offer more 3D sound than almost any IEM I have heard. They are not a bass head IEM nor are they a Treble head IEM but they offer a very cohesive mid centric sound that does not come across as one noted like some mid centric IEM have in the past.

I read they may break but the sound is so good I may buy a 2nd pair from the deal listed just to have a backup. I can't believe it has taken me this long to finally buy a pair of these. I lusted after them when they originally came out under their original model # but due to their price at the time and being drawn in another direction they got forgotten about. They may be old hat and forgotten but I swear they deserve a listen especially at that ridiculous price.
post #25305 of 32862
OK to highlight how serious I am about the UE600vi, I just ordered a 2nd pair from Amazon, something I have never done before.

Wayne and those that love the Mikros 90, I strongly suggest you try these if you have never done so. The imaging on these is simply insane...
