- Much livelier vocals, especially female vocals with a stunning sense of realism. In fact, vocals are so prominent, leading to the feeling that bass is actually slightly lacking in quantity.
I'm still burning them in. Will post more impressions once I have got 100 hours on them.
This has been my experience so far, the bass is all there but it sits back in the spectrum and is overshadowed sometimes by the mid-range but these frequencies aren't only vocal and I find that it brings elements of the music to the fore that shouldn't be there, i.e. plectrums striking strings etc. My T1's are ruthlessly revealing at about 100 hours, if there is something in the mix you are going to hear it, for better or worse, and this can be really tiring at times. Personally I think the bass is underrepresented in this version of the T1 and I have discussed this with ACS who are without doubt the most helpful people I have encountered in the audio industry this far! They make Ultimate Ears customs department look amateurish by comparison.
