The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1710

post #25636 of 32903
Thread Starter 

I am officially jump starting this thread because it has been way too dormant for my liking. I was going to headline the S5 but I decided against it as it is not truly discovery material. It is so damn close to being something special but them treble peaks get under my skin. I don't know what is worse. An earphone that is consistently sibilant or something like the S5 that is 95% sibilant free only to have the sibilance rear it's ugly head on some of the best vocal tracks..So close.

 

I am glad there is more fuel for the fire. You guys need to continue discovering as there is so much to discover..I was browsing on Amazon the other day and saw them TTPODs they look cool enough but wanted to wait till I read some reviews on them.. Glad they sound good.

I could never quite get to that point with the BE's though (even after extensive burn in), and not a friggin' chance with the FX40's.

 

Anyway, to the important question: how do you like the TTPOD's compared to the almighty KC06's?

Think i have posted it many tymes on the Chinese Gear thread that i prefer the KC06 even over my once beloved VSonic GR07 BEs due to my sources and how well those Ostriches gel with them so...

 

Think it is suffice to say this.....

Personally i prefer the KC06 over both the T1E and even the GR07 BE these days cuz my main portable sources (i.e my Nokia N9) has a weak sauce amp, but they gel CRAZY well with the Ostry KC06 and drives them beautifully with some slight power left. My cellphone can't drive the T1E loud enough to sound amaze balls that's fo' sho.

 

But really it comes down to personal preferences and sound siggys tbh, if you want a deep, bassy and a clear fun musical sound from top to bottom the T1E is your budget-fi key to audio nirvana. But if you want a musical sound that has very good quality bass with ample quantity that is ALSO a bit analytical with amaze ball wide sound staging/ good 3Desque atmosphere and is crazy easy to drive you can't really go wrong with the Ostry KC06.

 

 

yeppp the T1Es bass rumble and speed is better than the GR07 BEs but is still missing that texture i love on the BEs though. It is that texture in the bass that gives it A LOT of depth which makes it sound so unique in my book. The only IEM that has a similar texture to the BE is the KC06.

 

Hence this is why i would place them as one of the top bass centric iems on all the ones i have posted so far....

Not quite on the ATH CKS1000/ GR07 BE level but is close. Depending on your sound signature preference they are on par if not better than the JVC FXZ200, Sony XB90EX, Zero Audio Basso, Nuforce NE-700M, Philips Fidelio S2, JVC FXD80, ATH CKN70, Sony XBA-3 to name a few and is better than the Corecool V2, ATH CKS-77X, JVC FX3X, fo' sho.

How's THAT for comparison. ;)

Aside from some music that I think has overly enhanced bass I find these to just sound full for most of my music. They may be a bit north of neutral in the bass but not at the expense of the rest of the music. The only people who will have to think hard about this IEM are people who really prefer neutral to bass light signatures.


Compared to the Mikros 90 with the pinhole mod I would say the 1500 is slightly harder hitting and slightly deeper sounding, so north but not lots north. It really does fall somewhere in between the MDR7550 and EX1000.
You should most definitely try the ckr9s.

They'll probably be similar to the pioneers though, except with a slightly more forward upper midrange, best bass texture, speed, rumble, impact, and strength, while retaining a great layering and imaging like the pioneers (though the treble is more relaxed than your description of the pioneers).

On secons thought, audition them whenever possible, thats a better way of handling things.


I've got to purchase the pioneers soon, their price is tempting. Nice review smily_headphones1.gif

I'm glad the changes made to the thread's title. It's finally a time where newcomers to the audio world choose their next best option in the iem world.

T1e, ermagerd that mug will put a ton of great sound in your ears for a super reasonable price. I prefer mine over the GR07BE and my ostriches, so to each their own.

I think it's the evolution of the headphone industry catching up to my beloved GR07BE. It's bitter sweet.

I know my iems yall, and I know it all comes down to what flavor tea you prefer. Well, I gotta say I prefer those "tea one eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" 😁

Cheers

Okay, so I got a little chubbed about those tea pots, but hey meng, it's pretty **** to have something that punches with the big dogs for $35 usd.

Speaking of which, I've been jamming kz ed special edition (special ed lol) all weekend and they are a powerhouse iem also. Build quality on these is good for $100, let alone the measly $13 I paid for them.

I swear, the rockets, your ttpods, and the pioneer. HDJ 1500 iems are actually ovepoweing my own convictions at the moment.

I may even reconsider keeping some iems because of this...

yeppp sound signature/ personal preference is key. The T1E has more of what i would call a conventional tuning/ sound presentation that has great clarity, dynamics from top to bottom esp. bass quantity and quality but i am just not hearing anything from them that makes them sound THAT unique tbh. I guess i am just CRAZY picky regarding my conventional bass-centric IEMs/gears cuz i have hear so many of them. But yeah for me the bass quality of the GR07 BEs and the Ostry KC06 has similar characteristics as those from my custom modded ortho Fostex T50RPs which has some of the best bass texture/ quality i have heard to date. 

 

This is the reason i am so harsh regarding those piss_ton cuz to me they just didn't even live up to their hype even in the bass department and that's what they have in abundance sadly. The bass of the Nuforce NE-700M is much more audiophile basshead worthy just like these T1Es, but it's still the conventional variant and nothing really that special sounding even though they have both great quality/ quantity.

 

Guess what i am trying to say and getting at is that there are differentiations/ layers to what we simply call "bass", and i am sure warren can chime in on this cuz he seems to have more experience with orthodynamic cans such as the LCD lineup along with others. The bass texture of orthos just have this unique quality to them that is tight, deep, and punchy that is just bounces off of your eardrums with effortless ease which makes it very satisfying and in comparison makes most conventional dynamic / BA IEMs sound a bit hollow/ empty and lacking (ie: Philips Fidelio X1).

 

So far the bass of the GR07 BE, Ostry KC06, ATH CKS1000 (almost there but not quite) all have that quality/texture i stated above due to their tuning/ driver housing material???

 

Hmmm maybe this is what tube roller experiences as well, cuz the Schiit Vali amp has this quality to them as well. It is a bass texture/ sound that has great flavor to them if that makes any sense. LoL

Nah don't think you will need those TTPODs in your collection since you already own so many $pendy/ capable gears but if you wanna hear what $30-$50 get you these days that is a very technically capable from top to bottom/ musical/ fun and bass centric IEM from China these days, those TTPOD T1-E can't do no wrong.

post #25648 of 32903
Those TTPODS do look cool as all get out but the android cable I ordered have chewed up my budget for the time being LOL. I will be having a big sale pretty soon to free up space at home and possibly some cash to try a few of these new IEMs smily_headphones1.gif

Those crystal clear TTPODS don't just look cool, they are SOOOOOO damn comfy as well. Similar design as the JVC FXZ200 but is much much lighter/ has better fit/seal. Very consistent and zero hassle whatsoever with very good isolation to boot as well. One of the most comfy/ EZ to wear IEMs i have tried so far.

 

And compared to these monster milk machines.....

... best way to wear them for me in order to achieve proper fit/seal without the stupid longggggg arse ear guides getting in the way. :triportsad:

 

For those that still own the Brainwavz R3 try this method out with some soft double flange tips meng. Sonically really good stuff and deserves some belated hype tbh.

post #25650 of 32903

SF : those Tpods do look amazing.

Can you tell me if they seem to do better at any particular genre. What genre seems to suit them best? Been hitting up a fair bit of various classical and jazz so curious. I know people may associate classical with lightweight but it can have some of the most demanding ranges out there top to bottom ( got a TELARC label disc here with an actual warning on it about ruining speakers ). And doesn't matter if the cans are warmer so long as the details are there.

 

And am I correct thinking I read somewhere the rear ports are not vented at all?

 

Thanks
