What about the Tera players treble? I was under the impressios there may be some slight roll off there as well? At least I thought so due to its non-fatiguing nature allowing for hours upon hours of listening...
Maybe. But if anything, it's not as pronounced as in the low end. I don't think I could discern a slight 1-2db roll-off just by A/Bing. The bass roll-off, however, is clearly noticeable in comparison with a flatter source.
That might be possible as I haven't heard the Studio V 3rd Ani and C4 should pair with 334 very well.
I'm so excited to get my 2nd pair of 334, this time with 000 cable btw!
woot! my wallet just screamed
I am listening to Underworld now and the IE800 handles this kind of moody electronic music very well.
This morning I was listening to Classical on the train, Mahler and Rachmaninov. Overall I was pleased with the performance of the IE800. The presentation was a bit bold by Classical standards but an enjoyable listen. This is one genre where I think that ES5 really does do a better job in the sense that the extra texture and layering suits a large orchestra (and the less bold presentation also suits the genre in my view).
The isolation was better with Classical music than I had expected. I continue to be impressed by this aspect of the IE800. I am however using deep insertion.
so my incoming Miracle would also have that roll off ... gosh.. good thing I have a dx100
I would also try the 1plus2 on the tera
Yours illustrate wearing the IE800 over the ear very well.
I tried a few times wearing it this way with a smaller tip, but it was too much of a PITA for me especially since I use the phone a lot during the day.
Had my first semisuccessful over the ear experience. Note the complication of deep insertion. It's hard to see, but the tip remained in my canal when I pulled the monitors out. Had to have a friend remove it with a small set of pliers I had on hand. Thanks for the pics everyone, I think I have now finally learned how to insert them properly. I'm now an over the ear fan. In love with the sound.
I am mainly posting to get us past the nonsensical thread-killing post above.
I was really struck on the train today by how the IE800 is an extreme detail monster. I was listening to The Mamas and The Papas Greatest Hits and little vocal elements that I never paid much attention to before were intruding into my consciousness. Pico Slim is enhancing this effect no doubt. Power And The Glory by Gentle Giant is rocking the IE800 now. Too much bass? I don't think so.
