I nominate Jude, if only because he's generally the first and I don't like to be wrong.

+1  As I said, we should judge until we hear :)  Let your ears do the talking :p

Anyways, we were talking about the double bass ports...


The double bass ports actually looks cool.  IDK what it'll do it terms of sound, but it still looks cool nonetheless :)

One may even argue that the entire audiophile community and market is "Massively Overpriced and Impractical".  Outside of our community, who needs iems and headphones which cost as much as we pay?  Most people's objective is to listen to music - and while we agree, we tend to care more about the microdetail, refinement, etc which really isn't necessary to the average music-listener to enjoy music.  Here's where we deviate: audiophiles spend hundreds and thousands (sometimes) of dollars on equipment to squeeze that final bit of sound into our ears (or maybe not 'squeeze', soundstage is important :D).  We can't return to the iBuds which the majority of people enjoy their music with - how often do we sit down and actually hear everything that our gear can give us anyway?  And yes, the IE800, K3003, FAD iems etc are a niche within a niche - but they all have a target market, no matter how small which is enough to sustain and justify their production within a company.

Yeah, it's either Jude, or Tyll, or both...

Speaking of Jude, I always have this little hope in the back of my mind that I'll run into him on a plane routed through Detroit one day. There's nobody near me who's anywhere near as into headphones as I am.

Look for the guy who's hopelessly trying to persuade TSA that the Algorhythm Solo/Rx III combo isn't a bomb! tongue_smile.gif

I actually brought my CMoyBB on four flights in the past week and a half, and was only asked about it once, and then only out of interest. The TSA has some perplexing methods of observation, I guess.

Overpriced or not, think about the intangible values of the joy brought by the good sound going thru your brain. wink_face.gif

Tyll is ALWAYS so busy...each time I contact him, he says his got things to do (and that's me offering IEM's his never heard before to test)

hmm it's not like sennheiser is a head-fi sponsor or anything...rolleyes.gif

​I rather someone independent - no offence, but if I was being paid by a company, to maintain my own forums...then I would naturally, even without trying to be, a little impartial in my assessments. 

Good thing I have no sponsors.

Why is it, I pretty much see only sennheiser threads hyped up?

And we are already in our 7th page...

My 6,700 word review of 8 earphones, hasn't even gotten to 3 pages.

That's what annoys me about FOTM.

More like to illusion of it,sort of like how the TF10's distant mids makes it seem to have a large soundstage.

 

Soundstaging is overhyped when it comes to iems, they come nowhere near full sized headphones.

 

In fact soundstaging is overhyped in general, just look at what some of those Grados and Alessandros can do with a small soundstage.

no idea how this relates.

 

but I agree IEM's don't even come close to headphones I've owned.

And those are only limited to two: XB700's and D2K's.

 

IEM's, like the ie7/8's, asg-1's do sound "open" and wide, but won't reach that depth that my d2k's reach for example - not even close.

Isn't soundstage sort of a preference thing anyways than a measure of quality?

 

I've owned the AD900s in the past and they had a massive soundstage, but to me that just made them sound way too polite and tame for my tastes, same goes for a pair of entry level Stax earspeakers I had once. I prefer a more upfront and intimate sound which is why I don't really care about having wide soundstages all too much. I put preference to instrument separation in this sort of area.

To some extent yes - but also it has to be noted that the asg-1's for example were much wider and more capable of producing a bigger sound vs my MG7's

So yes and no to your question.
