I'm going to have to hit up the glossary, because I'm not totally sure what the difference is between "neutral sound signature" versus "natural reference".

Change to wide opening tips or Sony Hybrid type tips. A lot of small opening tips boost the bass on them, which makes them sound sloppy. The stock tips are sloppy with bass too.

I have some what I thought to be Sony Hybrid tips I bought on ebay.  I don't notice much difference in sound to the stock small tips, which I was using.  There is a big difference with the stock flange tips, but they lose too much at both ends and detail suffers too - in other words, not good in any way.  I'll chime back when I've tried the mod.  I'm sure I would be much more inclined to listen to these if the bass tightened up and the signature shifted slightly more favour to the upper end.

Does neutral mean that the frequency is flat at all recordings?

And natural as in the frequency is close to flat, but its balance changes according to the song? 


I still have no clue, and there was a debate about this in a thread before.

Aren't the Pistons of too low impedance to be driven from the Bravo Audio Ocean?  Some were saying it was a good combo a bit earlier in the thread.  I've got a 70ohm resistor adapter.  Does anyone know I would be better off using that if trying to drive them from the Bravo?

Neutral is flat across the frequency and natural is how you would hear it in nature ūüėé

Not sure if the TE-05 is natural or what but I believe mochill also describes the Cardas ear speakers as natural.  Both sound completely different to me so they could both be natural in different ways.  Either way, he's right about the praises he gives the TE-05's.  After 24 hours of burn in, these sound a little fuller than out of box.  Bass sounds a little more prominent but it's very controlled.  Better texture than the Doppio's and possibly more natural.  Midrange is fantastic.  Vocals have an airy presence.  Treble is quite extended but I haven't noticed much fatigue, especially today compared to yesterday.  The sound almost has an armature driver type of sound, it's that clear and clean.  Not overly analytical and flat, there's some warmth and I can enjoy the music.  Although I haven't compared side by side, this sounds like a baby TH900 with less bass.

pretty much describing the im-02s, lol.

 

Then again, I have no idea since bass is not that prominent, and I have no idea how the two compare.

 

Nice impressions Dan man! :beerchug: Glad to hear that they sound somewhat full, and that the bass texture is actually better than a double ba earphone! I want to hear the midrange now.... I know that the female voices on the im-02s are outstanding, and males don't get that behind it either...

 

 

 

I also found out...

 

the way you wear the re-700s can affect the imaging of the soundstage, as well as the mikros...

 

Pretty weird actually, I thought wearing it directly on the center of the ears made the imagery the same as the mikros, but it doesn't. 

 

I guess I wasn't wearing the mikros correctly either I believe...

My Nexus 5 has very low gain, so it works well on it. Running a Sylvania tube, but switching to a Genalex Gold Lion later.

 

A resistor will usually modify the sound signature.

Some on ears can be a pain to get the correct fit.  I probably didn't get the full spectrum of sound from my one hour audition.  Seems I will be able to hear them again with a more comfortable mod.  The AT IM-series must be good ones and improved from the older models and same with the RE's.  Maybe you need to get the TE-05's to compare for us or settle for the V's.  Thankfully Eric will be chiming in tomorrow with his impressions to help you decide.  ;)

post #21779 of 26070

That definitely isn't favorable then..


I can see why people don't like on-ears..

 

The fit, sometimes the pain from the fit, etc etc...

 

The IM series are pretty good to be honest, I wish I had the 03 to compare the 02s...

 

But the V and the fostex are more appealing, and who knows? Thankfully for everyone here that eric will definitely share his impressions.

 

UNFORTUNATELY for ME, I won't be smiling at my empty wallet after I choose either iem to enjoy and compare to the collection, lol.

Like I said it sounds like a hybrid iemūüėé...mids and treble sound armuture like and bass is dynamic ūüėäūüíē
