LOL...  I don't think everyone's definition still matches. 

 

Shouty - A boost in the 1-2k region that causes an emphasis in the higher vocals and midrange that creates a lack of decay.  At times can be described as ringing, loud, strident, painful, or an excess of energy.

I just broke down and spent 40 dollars on the whole fiio e6 portable amp setup.  It may save me money on the filters in the long run.  How do these work amped? I cant wait to get these things!

Using the E1, you get better separation and clarity in the mids.  The lows tighten up nicely.  Highs are left unchanged though (maybe slightly clearer).  They do open up with an amp.  There is much more perceived air :)

yay! Hopefully they show up tomorrow.... I want to listen ASAP. I've never had so much anticipation over a pair of headphones.  Sadly they will arrive on the same day I take my ACT for the 3rd time redface.gif

LOL.  The good thing about USPS (IDK if Springtree uses USPS, I know Aurisonics does) is that they deliver on weekends :)  So there is a chance.  Good luck on the ACT :p  I took mine once, never took it again, only got a 25 :p

Just making sure, way too many definitions XD

As far as I'm concerned, that's the definition.  Others change the emphasis to the entire midrange, but that doesn't describe the ASG-1 (burned in).

Altering earphones? Seems so drastic and I never heard this being done with other brands.

I can already listen to Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing but in The Crow's OST - Jane Siberry's It Can't Rain All The Time - is a track that really bores my brain with that excruciating ringing or shoutiness.

 

Then I thought why not I make my own filter and got an idea from the DBAs. I accidentally removed the filters on my DBAs while tips rolling and noticed that the (dark) filters has some 4 holes on it when looked at against the light so...

 

Ladies? and gentlemen - the dogears filter:

 

N82_2366.jpg

I cut 4 squares of the 3M Micropore tape then put two layers on each nozzle.

I then punched 4 holes on it [edit: using a pin, it can get sticky so wipe it every after hole). Listened and punch 2 more and ended up with 7 as seen on the picture I took. It's 1AM over here when I started experimenting and it's already 3AM biggrin.gif

The picture is already digitally enhanced (edit: the holes were enhanced in MSpaint) to emphasize/approximate the holes I ended up with. You can decide for yourself how big/many holes should you put on your filters - it's very "tunable" wink.gif

With this, I can already safely listen to the Jane Siberry track and went through my test tracks. Whitney Houston sounds great again biggrin.gif

The shoutiness is definitely gone BUT I am still wishing for more treble which I think is unaffected by this tweak. It doesn't stop me from enjoying the sound though.

Since this is very reversible, I am planning to remove it next week when I reach some 200 hours play time on the ASG1s and see if it still has improved/changed.

In the meantime, I'll enjoy it with the filters on cool.gif

Got to hit the bed already biggrin.gif
