I didn't hear any difference between the V and the V Aging. I'm pretty sure it's just a cosmetic difference.

Pandora opened a jar (pithos), in modern accounts sometimes mistranslated as "Pandora's box" (see below), releasing all the evils of humanity—although the particular evils, aside from plagues and diseases, are not specified in detail by Hesiod—leaving only Hope inside once she had closed it again. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora, 2014)

 

And I can't help but keep guessing why it was named Pandora Hope, which sounds like a paradox to me. Then I was illuminated by the idea that maybe they meant: The last treasure inside the Pandora box which is yet to be opened, the HOPE. A bright and sparkling gem emerged from the deepest of the abyss. 

 

And then when you see the design of the box, a black container and the hairy fur. It feels like you're digging up a treasure within a mass of darkness. Such poetic and thoughtful planning!

 

Disclaimer: The above was just a speculation.

Thanks for Your reply anyway. I'll most likely still buy the heaven VI as I'll be using an amp with them also.

 

I think that you will be very happy with that decision. My Westone ES5, a well-regarded custom which was my IEM of choice for two years, gets fairly little use now. I prefer the Heaven VI.

 

Properly amped, the Heaven VI is a simply fine headphone. The sound is a bit colored as in 'euphonic'. It excels at vocals but I enjoy it with all genres of music.

Speaking of FAD's creation of wonderful euphonic headphones with chrome copper, I am having a great session with the 1601SC from the DX50 (FW 1.2.7) and the Pico Power. 10,000 Maniacs MTV Unplugged is just sounding gorgeous. I might even take the 1601SC on the road one of these days - a bit of a crazy thought but tempting.

I'm curious if anyone has tried AKR01 vs IV on the AK100 & 120?

Similar design/model but just different tuning.

post #3547 of 5878

How would people on here compare the Heaven IV to, say the Sennheiser IE80? 

post #3548 of 5878

Hi, between FAD heaven II and IV which is better bargain?

 

since price are not that much difference, can it come to preferred?

 

 

FWIR, heaven IV soundstage is as wide as GR07 with more depth, is it really?

Skip Heaven II, it's not anywhere as good as Heaven IV.

So if I'm looking for something that has bass when required for electronic / dance music but want really good mids and highs for vocals and instruments, which model do I go for?

I have the Heaven IV, I also like dance and electronic, they're very good for this and don't disappoint on the other things you asked about. Also I may be selling mine very soon and upgrading. They're less than a month old.

I bought a pair of EQ-5s to see if it captured the essence of the FI-BA-SS, and it didn't. What you'll gain from the upgrade is much deeper and textured bass, full mids, and better treble. If you want texture, the SS will grant it to you in spades. It makes the piano and strings sound like good old friends.

 

As for the Piano Fortes, those are a different story. I find them to be very mood dependent, really. They remind me of the typical gramophone sound. On my first go around with them, I was stricken by how they presented some of my music. This time around, I find myself far less enamored by them. So that may be something to be considered.

I second that : I have EQ-7 (which is are outstanding) and went for FI-BA-SS. At a price, granted.

Can anyone give me some info on the Piano Forte Ⅷ? I cant find a decent review or anything :(

I can't decide between these and the Dunu DN-1000. I mainly listen to Korean pop music (Female vocals) and dance music. Not really sure what to go for.

 

Out of curiosity, why are you upgrading and what to?
