The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1445

Heard some amazing sounds last night...went to a friend, audiophile (I started him off, he took it and ran with it, wow), he does some recording/sound on the sound and has some contacts. He had a concert in his living room, The Autumn Defense (2 members of Wilco in a spin off), they were great (didn't know much of their music, Americana would be the genre), fabulous having a concert by professionals in such a great setting). Before the concert, went down to the dedicated listening room...Conrad Johnson amp/preamp, Gallo speakers, ACOUSTIC ROOM TREATMENT, for God's sake, and another friend brought a rebuilt Reel to Reel machine, high end electronics inside, and, through some contact or other, early generation Reel to Reel tapes of The Beatles' Seargent Pepper and Abby Road. I sat there with the band listening (discussing record cleaning machines, for God's sake), and hearing the most incredible recorded sound I've heard in ages. Talk about palpable/imaging/edges of instruments doesn't come close...wanna ditch all this play stuff I've accumulated. Jeez...and I don't have a bad main stereo.
(had a great time, dead exhausted now...)


And Wilco...
(tellin' you, Nels Cline is a guitar god...)

Got the FAD V aging in the house. Been listening to them non stop all day..Very nice sound coming out of these in ears..I am completely surprised how fully smooth and lush the sound is. This is coming from a single BA? Just astounding..I simply can't believe how this large and in charge sound is coming out of one BA..Danny mentioned how these sound like there are multi BAs. They do in deed..

 

Vocals out of these are wicked..Never heard a single BA sound quite like these. I think guys willing to throw down the cash for these in ears are in for a nice surprise.These are tuned extremely well and are voiced in a forward and full manor that don't skimp on any of the detail goodness of BAs but sound like a fully realized dynamics in sound.. They exhibit the imagery and speed of BAs with the lushness and fullness of dynamics..A bit of fairy dust and magic?.

 

Tuning magic and good old fashion know how perhaps. Whatever it is they did with these in ears. I am very impressed. A very engaging sound coming out of these.

After some fostex vs heaven comparisons are made, I'll make my decision.

The V's can be had for around $200 if you look.  The Aging is a bit more expensive.  I have the VI now but don't have the V to compare it with side by side but the upgrade in sound can't be that much.  At least not enough to warrant upgrading.  IMO.

I'm interested in those comparisons as well.

It would be great to hear a direct comparison between the V and VI if you get the chance.

I'll do that once I get the V's back.  I'll throw the TE-05 into the mix too.

Mochill was right. If you pop out the Piston nozzle and remove the grey foam inside, the bass tightens up a bit and you get a little more extension in the highs.

Anyone that's willing to try to improve the Piston sound should give it a try.

For the people that ordered the fostex, will you guys receive the iems this week? If not, I might as well pull the trigger. I only find the heaven V for $240 so far.

My god, the re700s and the martin logans are identical brothers in tonality, soundstaging, imaging, and bass quality (except the re700s don't have the pull effect and sound a bit bolder). 

 

Damn, I'm a happy man to have both the re700s and logans, never will I sell these two beauties (in their own right).

 

I may even go as far as to say that they are fraternal twins! Jeeze, these guys work together so well.

 

IF the martins do not show up in stores again (I truly hope not), then the re700s are a viable option for late martin logan fans.

So my E07K that I ordered was on back order. I decided to just cancel it and am wondering if going up from a E07K to an E17 is worth the money. Thoughts?

Awesome, thanks! The V's, TE05 and H3's are on my current lust-list. Well, I would probably just snag the H3's if budget were not a consideration. Then again, you have high regard for the V's, and they are sounding like great bang for buck (and a nice complimentary sig to the M200's). I suspect that the TE05's may very well fit into that category also...

^ Never heard the E07Ks but the E17s is pretty good. Powerful and slick looking but it is a bit warm for my liking and is not the best in transparency. I imagine that E07K is pretty similar, just probably not as powerful??? i really dunno and maybe it would be best to ask in their respective threads???

 

Here are some of ClieOS' amp comparo threads that might help???
