Anyway, this thread has spiraled well out of control following my simple remark (above) about subjective FR of UM's Miracle. I never expected this threads huge detour with DAP graphs etc.
I can very simply state that my perception of the UM Miracle having a slight lift in the upper midrange is not isolated to it's use with the DX100. I experience the same character with my Sony D-777 discman, too (please note that, unlike the Cowon J3, the D-777 does drive the Miracle respectably, albeit not to a stellar degree).
It may be differences in ear canal shape, but I certainly don't hear all CIEMs to have a slight upper midband lift, so I'm not convinced of that being the reason for my perception of the Miracles FR.
When, oh when are we ever going to hear some concrete news on the 901..?? WHEN?!
