Thank you DannyBai. And I must say I'm a bit leery on advice from two people who hear the Cardas soooooo differently than I do. I rather trust my own ears... No offense meant.


DannyBai I do have a question for you. Have you heard the Re262? If so, are the V and re262' s mids similar? Which has more bass? Thanks.

Fostex Te05 is on the way too.

It's okie. I was just saying that it didn't sound like the SS. That's all. Hope you like them. We're only at 1 degree of separation on this Heaven V adventure anyway wink.gif

It's been awhile since the RE262 and 272.  I found the 262's a bit too forward but the 272 was one of my favorites of all time.  I think the mids might be closer to the 262's but adds the air from the 272's to make the V even more pleasing.  So, not as thin as the 272 but less thick than the 262 = happy medium?

But did the re262 have more bass than the V from memory. That's my main concern.

I don't think so.  If my memory serves me correct, the V's have better punch and speed.  More impact and the 262's were softer.  I hope I'm not steering you wrong here.

Don't worry. You are going off memory. I'll know soon enough. I'm excited.

It wasn't bad advice, Eric. They just said that the older Heaven models A, C and S sound more similar to the FI-BA-SS than the newer ones. Was meant as a direct response to you posting "I hope the V will remind of the FI-BA-SS a little bit". The V may still be just fine for you, as DannyBai says, but that doesn't invalidate the other replies.

 

Looking forward to your impressions... :smile_phones:

The V has a lot more bass than the re262 and I believe it will be to your liking.
post #3686 of 6697
Alright james444, fair enough. Thank you vwinter, eke, DannyBai, and shotgunshane.
