I think it's because it has a clearer midrange than the m200s).

 

Great comparison btw. Makes me want to get them to compare the m200s and h-3s.

I find the H3's to be the refined version of the M200's also.  M200's keep up quite well to the H3's though but I'd vote for the H3's without hesitation.  I think the armature drivers on the H3's benefit over the dynamics on the M200's for that added clarity.  I find the FAD's to be more involving but not as lush.  The FAD's have the thickness but it's not as laid back as the other two.  Hard to explain.  It's a faster presentation, more forward but not too forward.  Midrange is closer than the other two but it doesn't slap you in the face to get annoyed.  FAD's make a nice compliment to the H3's and will give you that top-tier sound in the mid-fi category which isn't far behind the top-tiers.

Both are quite spectacular and will sound totally different enough to enjoy both.  Might as well keep on that spree and own both.

My Heaven V is starting show the Aging already because I've been using them so much.  

 

M200, VAging quick comparisons.  Surprisingly the Aging sounds almost as big but the instruments and vocals sound closer.  Bass is faster, doesn't reach as deep as the M200 but has better impact due to it being faster, punchier and precise.  M200 sounds a bit airier but not as focused.  Instrument separation is very good on both.  Love the high-hats on the M200's with the song I'm listening to.  The M200's sounds slightly thicker and bass does protrude in the mix but not so with the VAging.  Both are absolutely lovely but for those who find the M200's to be a little bass heavy, the VAging cures that without being bass light.  It's definitely not bass light.  VAging has crispier treble, more energy.  I was comparing it to the Sony H3 the other day and I absolutely loved them both but the H3 was sounding romantic and the VAging sounding more lively with more energy.  I am finding the same sort of conclusion with the M200.  For guys like ericp, Wayne and Dsnuts who basically own all the phones that I own, these will be a change in sound that is very welcoming.  These even don't remotely sound like the Doppio's.  An excellent mix of dynamic and armature.  These are a hybrid sound without being hybrid.  

 
 

 

Awesome

Great impressions Danny - really gives me a feel for the FAD's. They sound FADtastic :)

The TH-7BB should be here first thing in the morning, which means they'll get here before I wake up, so hopefully I'll have some first impressions for you shortly after I get up. Looking forward to them and how they compare to the ST750 & Philip L1. smily_headphones1.gif

Totally agree on all accounts. Sony has outdone themselves, just as kef, FAD, and other audio brands. :)

 

:beerchug: Can't wait to hear the future jvc fx850 comparison danny! :wink:

post #20783 of 26065

I don't wanna think about buying the FX850's vlenbo, but man those will be tempting after knowing how the FX700 were.  Thankfully the FX700's didn't fit me all that well so I won't be as tempted to get those.  

post #20784 of 26065

We'll see how you'll hold up after some impressions and reviews! ....is what I would have said.

 

Welp, you're safe. I hope the same is said for others. :evil: 


Enjoy those FADs man, I'm sure others will be jealous enough to buy them right this week, since the deal may not last very long....*wink wink to viewers of this thread*

Before this thread rests(or if it doesn't), I wanted to embed a song that we can all relate to.

 

 

Pretty great song imo.

 

Better than one day of the whole week, right Rebbeca?

Bringing back on topic, I imagine this album would come alive through the Pistons! wink.gif

Thanks amigomatt ...excellent music ...cool and frickin funky ...good music to wind down after a long day.

Cheers.

Listened to the AX35 today. Go get them.
Finally received my Pistons along with the Fiio E12 DIY and MA750.

Vocals are stunning, and I had forgotten about that in the MHC1. I had initially said the Pistons sounded better, but I had the wrong tips on the Sony and I took a quick listen. But I have UE900 tips on both now and the Sony clearly wins. Pistons aren't miles behind though,and the Pistons have more bass, treble, and a wider soundstage. The MHC1 seems to be a mid focused iem with good bass and decent highs. Highs may not be enough for some but are perfect for me. I will try to get to the On1 a little later vlenbo.

 

Thanks for confirming ericp! I'm still very happy with my MH1's and very positive that it's still hard to beat at $15 price tag. I'm not even a fan of EQing but a simple mid bass reduction on the MH1 makes it sound really high class. I even have a hard time choosing between the MH1 with EQ vs KEF M200 for casual listening.

Anywho does anyone know if applying a thin layer of foam/ filter over the nozzle of an iem will tame treble peaks/ sibilance a bit??? Cuz with the auvio tips and the silver rings these DN1Ks bests the M200s for me, clarity wise was the most obvious, but the treble can be slightly peaky/ bright on higher volumes. Nothing on the level of the CKN70s nor the JVC FX40s but still, just want some tips to tame them a bit, no pun intended. :tongue_smile:

 

When i used foam driver covers for headphones it tends to bring the treble even more forward with more brightness in my pass/ limited modding experience so... not sure if it's the case with iems.

 

I do have a layer of foam cut from earbud foam covers on my DN1000. My main reason is to keep dirt and earwax off the nozzle but aside from that, it does help smoothen the treble peaks a bit.

@DannyBai

Nice Heaven V impressions and comparisons!

I always have trouble when people ask if they are better than something else. It's always like, ummm it depends haha. But just listening to them this morning, soooo happy.

For anyone on the fence and wants other than sound info, cables are microphonic but very supple so wearing them down and just loosely looping them over your ear is reaaaally easy and works a charm, because they are flat and are angled perfectly for doing so. There's a picture in the FAD thread... Somewhere.
