The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 34

So. I did some serious listening with the isurus last night and I have to tell you guys..BURN them in and I am not talking about your average burn in either. I am talking 100 hours minimum and preferably 200hours. Here is the reason why.. I have more use out of my pair than any one of you guys and I have to say. My isurus sound stupendous. Just amazing.  I took home my more expensive Sony EX41b..And when I switched to the Sonys.. Wow the difference. Everything I try after the isurus now has a flaw minus my EX600. But even then I think I actually prefer the more fuller sounding mids over them..

 

I know many of you guys were ready to give up on these but I am telling you. I have mine on permanent burn and it has close to 200 hours of burn and use on them and they sound just awesome. Smoother doesn't describe them at this point. What was once peaky highs now are controlled and give me some really top notch precision, clean highs. The bass is just perfect on them and the mids.. I like to test a variety of vocal tracks that reach lows to the highs and once I changed up to my Sonys. Lets just say I am gonna have to sell my EX41Bs. These have been a big disappointment for me. The MP8320s are better than them at 1/5th of the cost..

 

I know many of you are thinking these wont change much but I am telling you what I hear from them are not iems that even come close to what we payed for them..I encourage everyone that just got an isurus to keep them on a burn cycle and I mean for longer than what you guys are used to. Once these drivers mature you will know what I am talking about.

 

Look at it this way..Out of box they sound like what you payed for them.. After the big burn they don't. The longer these drivers mature they get better and better.. That is worth giving a try. Give them a good workout and you guys will benefit from a way better sounding isurus.. I had no idea how stiff these drivers were. The only other drivers that benefited this much from burn was my HTF600 and HFI-780s.. Burn away!!!

 

Update.. Will have 3 new Philips models within a day.. I eagerly await to see how these other Philips earphones stack up to the SHE3580. Will let you guys know very soon.

Bear in mind there's sound signature preference at work here as well as the suitability of my profile to different pairs of ears in question, so whether these converted files sound great could be as YMMV as whether the phones themselves sound good.

 

If the EQ *does* work for you--what it's supposed to do is create a flat frequency response, cancelling out the V signature (YMMV on whether the signature actually is V) and the resonance peaks in the treble.  Nothing should stand out too much from the rest, which at first may sound dull, but as you get used to it you realize you're hearing *everything*, and not just whatever's being emphasized.  Dunno if you can get the hang of it in just one song though...

 

Again, just use the stock SHE3580 silicone tips if you get a good seal.




I find both of your processed tracks to be superior to the original.  I think I prefer the "custom settings" one most of all.  The boomy-ness of the bass line in the original is very over powering in comparison to the others.  Since EQ'ing isn't a practical option for me (use on wide breadth of devices, many without EQ software available), it sounds like I'd probably be happiest with an IEM that is designed to have a very accurate freq response, perhaps like the Ety MC5 or something.

w00t. Isurus is here. Right out of the box i put my sony hybrids (smallest ones) on the isurus and didn't notice any harshness. But I bought them New open-box. Maybe they were used with some burn in?

IEMs are horribly uncomfortable coming from Denons. Is there any tutorial on how to correctly imsert IEMs?

post #500 of 32862

fiddle a bit? or try the biflange tips might be more comfy, but then again these have an unique housing.

Ok...you've convinced me.  I had'em all boxed up and ready to ship back....but I guess I don't have anything to lose by continuing the burn for awhile longer.  I can tell that I really might enjoy them without the treble harshness.  Off to burn, burn, burn!

yes, i'm at maybe 120 hours. went to the sony hybrid tips from the complys. much better now without the shrill that i had when i first opened them. they do seem to take some power to get them up to level.

i got the XePort 5010s in the post today....what a disappointment

I don't think he has to will anyone to like it. i can tell they're a great value once you change the tips. They're quite competent in detail retrieval and clarity. If the nutman has the EX600 with him and he still can't find any fault with the isurus, then either the EX600 is a piece of garbage, or the isurus is pretty darn good. My ears agree with the latter

Guess I'll scratch the XePorts off my list!

i have a problem with the screw ports, at an angle. who ever put the originals on buggered them. the silver cap doesn't even stay on. i sent email to the company i'll see what they say. didn't sound bad but i wonder how much of a difference the caps make, seemed slight to me.

then again, i only had a few moments with them.

So the caps screw in at an angle? Hmmm...that is odd. Hopefully they get that sorted for you because they're solid IEMs for bassheads on the cheap.

I would return those and get new ones. I would be pissed if that happened to mine.. I initially gave the thumbs up on the XePort 3010.  I am gonna have to take that recommend away. They aren't bad but they aren't anything great either. I would go for the Philips SHE3580 over those. I did some extended listening of the 3010 and while it holds some decent value at $10 or so those are very much bass light..Bassier tunes are not properly done on these. Overall sound has proper balance and good sound but ultimately end up sounding a bit thin as a result of the weaker bass response.  The 5010 is more of a guilty pleasure earphone and if you get one that can have the caps screw in correct they are indeed some fun sounding earphones and worth the money spent. Better value than the MElec Sp51s

To ppl owning the philips 3580 how do they compare to the brainwavs m1? I want a spare pair of cheap IEMs for outside use.

the tt isurus arrived today from amazon$28 with free shipping!!! my impression without any burn in is wow these are quite for  good the price although i notice some harshness in upper high freq.the bass and mids are quite good overall i am very impressed. thnx for the hot tip on these. my only complaint is the cord not a big fan of the shorter left side wish they came in standard y cord !!!but the comfort is good so far. i say outta the box they beat the monster turbines and dre. beats tour by a long shot!!!!amazing at this price range
