Power of bass: Aurisonics ASG-1.2 | TF10 | Brainwavz | Brokestone Dual-Drive [Worldwide Shipping]
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I appreciate varieties and different sound signatures, but that's after I joined this community (thanks Head-fi!). How so? I'd read somebody saying "forward mids" and I'd buy a headphone to understand what forward and mids are. I’d read somebody saying that "Xears does sub-bass well" and within weeks, I was listening to it understanding what was mid-bass and sub-bass. It’s been great fun. But since I should move on to my amp/full-size phones (for more auditioning lol), up for sale are these minty new phones (minty because they are for auditioning purpose and I use them interchangeably with my other phones). BTW, try not to dismiss a gear because it’s cheap. RE-0 is cheap but many compare them to the best.
As you can see, here I have for sale are all bass-thumping guys – phones that are capable of producing full bass without affecting the mids. For tredble-happy phones, please look for my other FS thread.
Brookstone Clear Dual-Drive (Oct 11): $45. As you might already know, these are rebranded Radius DDM2. So they have the same design as the bass-thumping, open-sounding, $250 dual-drivers Radium DDM2 (see below for more information).

Thanks for looking!
Note: ClieOS gives them a 4.3 for SQ (reference: ER4P gets a 4.6):
Talking about Radius – it is pretty obvious BrookStone has managed to find the company that OEM the Radius DDM series to make the Clear Dual Drive for them . . . . Dual Diaphragm Matrix is first saw on Radius W Pro (a.k.a. DDM1), then the Radius W2 Pro (a.k.a. DDM2) . . . . What I would describe BsCDD is - if you mix DDM2’s treble and soundstage with DDM1’s mid, then pump back as much bass as DDM2 but without the fullness, you will end up with BsCDD. The overall sound signature is warm, mid centric and laid back. Bass reaches down deep . . . . but tends not to come in full force or linger long enough to feel like a bass monster like the DDM series. Mid is what stands out the most in the whole presentation - it is not very forward, but enough to show character in the voice yet retain distance from the listener. Treble is decently extended but smooth overall. Like DDM2, it is at quantitatively enough to show micro detail and not appear quite dark or lacking with string or brass instruments . . . . Soundstage is above decent. Unlike the DDM2 which has an immersive soundstage, BsCDD has a more open stage though the mid centric presentation . . . .
IEM Reviewer Extraordinaire
Deep V-shaped frequency response with lots of treble and bass and supposed to a bassy version of the bright sounding B2. While abundance and has decent depth, bass can be slightly boomy at time. However, it is not offensive and rather still quite enjoyable. Mid range, especially vocal, comes out clean and well detailed . . . . Treble is decently extended and crisp While neither a bass monster nor true analytical IEM, M4 is still in itself a well tuned and enjoyable IEM to listen to, almost like a lesser version of Triple-fi 10 in a dynamic transducer form. Though still a fair price at around US$70 from MP4Nation, North Americans should be happy to know M4 can often be had for less than $50 from Amazon, truly making it a great bargain.
