EDM stuff sounds pretty good on it especially after putting on the Ety triple flange tips but I wish the subs could be a few dB higher. Yes, high mid is pretty shouty around the 5kHz region....Anyway deep insertion does actually bring out the bottom end quite a bit.

Btw, what ear tips are you using for the DBA? I actually plan to sell it off but after spending some quality time with it, I think I'm going to keep it anyway biggrin.gif

I don't spend much time listening to the DBA anymore, but I settled on the stock tips after a while. I can get a deeper fit depending on what size I use. Small goes deep while large stays shallow.

I'll never sell them though, since they were my first major iem purchase. According to joker's rating chart they were the best performing iem for the cost, with a 9.2 rating or something like that. Bought them for like $170 which was huge at the time. I was sure I'd never have to upgrade, and I was really content with them for long time. But then the CK10 blew everyone's mind, and things quickly spiraled out of control lol.

Haha....as always....we all get caught on the upgrade bug on HeadFi.....lol. My ears are very happy....not my wallet though :tongue_smile: 

 

Like you....I have a soft spot for stuff that I like before so I'm not letting the DBA go :etysmile:

In fact it's so good I am looking for a used pair in the market for 'backup'.

Just a question, I´m between these ones and the Ety HF5 (actually, Im replacing another HF5s because I lost´em). Is the $80 USD diference in the price tag really worth it? I´m seeing you´re placing the dba-02 above the HF5 in bang-for-the-buck, so I´m very intrigued, since my plan was to just get another pair of the etys, and in most of the direct comparisons I´ve seen, people seem to place the HF5 as the best choice, so I´m only wondering what I´m getting for the extra in the pricetag.
I really like the precision in the response of my last pair, but I think a warmer sound would be a good fit for me (I don´t know abour the soundstage, because I don´t have a way to compare, but I think that would be rather good).
My listening goes from classical to death metal, so flexibility is also appreciated (if it helps, Pink Floyd´s WYWH SACD is my favorite and ultimate listening reference).
