Looks like Joker got a hold of the Narmoo RIM phones. Impression on here..http://theheadphonelist.com/brief-impressions-t-peos-accidentally-extraordinary-meze-narmoo-astrotec-olasonic-ear-earphones/

 

I agree with Jokers take on them but he is hearing them with probably no burn in and using the stock tips. I hope to see a new selection of better sounding tips for the RIMs in a possible future update. The stock tips vs my UE tips there is a clear difference. I sent some better tips to Narmoo to prove my point about the stock tips. In any case.. You all should be reading some more impressions of them very soon.

But...let them non elitists eat cake I say! lol

The ex600 treble isn't that bad..

Listening to the soulful tune on my Doppios. Don't know if it gets much better.

This is the first efficient jvc ...on very low volume everything is heard and felt...the air that flows through them runs shivers down my spine 😲 ....3hrs of burnin and still sounds amazing 😍

Mochill, have you heard the FX700 and if you have, can you compare the bass.  Also, does the FX850 remind you of any other headphone/earphone you've heard before.  Thanks.

Always wanted the fx700 but was sidetracked by other iems but now I have the woodies I don't think I'll need any more iems...they are totally unique sounding in my collection and I'm loving the schiit outta them at the moment 😁😎

For you, perhaps. To my ears just as bad as the Ex1000.

Burn them in for about 3 days and the treble isn't that sharp anymore

Those Doppios are incredible now. Only BA that gives them a run for the money is the V now.

I had over 100 hours on them. Still harsh. Now, they weren't harsh for you is a good thing. We don't share the same experience.

So then do we get an updated impressions on how the Doppio sounds against the TE-05? Regardless of armature or dynamic they seem to be of the same approach both being straight barrel, Japanese made phones seeking a well balanced, detailed, transparent sound for a mid-level price.

Hmmm? You ask for so much from me jant71 ...............lol 

 

 

Let's see, I just had the Doppios in my ears yesterday, and today I have the TE-05 with me. Source: DX50 as usual.

 

- TE-05 has a wider sound stage with some mega sub-bass for a balanced/reference sound earphone. 

- It takes more power to drive the TE-05

- TE-05 is one of the fastest dynamic drivers I've ever heard in an earphone. Mochill was correct when he stated awhile back its sound hybrid-ish (dynamic for lows with BAs for mids and highs). It's amazing to my ears this is just one dynamic.

- TE-05 is not recommended for those who need deep isolation. Noise will seep in on public transportation, but it can do okay. This earphone is best, however, in a quiet room and/or quiet environment.

- Doppio shine in mids (so those the Fosxtex, but the ZA is more refined...please do not take that as me saying that the TE-05 isn't refined). Vocals are very lush and liquid in the Doppios. I think only the V might beat the vocals in what I've heard from a universal BA earphone.

- Doppio has some great bass (especially sub bass), but it doesn't go as low as the TE-05. TE-05 is the clear winner.

- Doppio is the more refined between the two. The combination of aluminum, carbon fiber, and brass helps the Doppio reproduce some of the most realistic horn instruments I've ever heard coming out of an earphone. The sound is more intimate, but not up close and in your face like the SM3 was.

- Interesting that some have argued that BAs need no burn-in, but the Doppio virtually had NO bass to my ears until after about 30 hours of burn in. The difference is so blaring that it's hard to believe this is the same earphone. The BA-200 still sounds the most dynamic BA to my ears, but the Doppio is not far behind. The Doppio, however, is the most transparent, clear, and detailed earphone between the BA-200 and ZA. 

 

Now, with all that typed, the TE-05 and Doppio sound nothing alike, so it's like comparing apples and oranges. Both, however, are good to the listening palate in my opinion. The Doppio is going to isolate better though. It sit in deep (the deeper the fit the better it sounds).

 

I use small-medium UE900 tips with my Doppio to get a good deep seal. I was using the large UE900 tips with the TE-05, but since the bass has opened up I've switched back to the TE-05's large stock tips. I like the stock tips on the TE-05 and V.
