I actually got an email from Vitaliy about these and he included a graph vs. the response of the Ety ER4. Looks like noticeably more bass, noticeably smoother mids and pretty similar highs.
Got my molds done today and I'm looking forward to ordering a set of the V3s just as soon as humanly possible.
So I just received my V3's today and I can say I am thoroughly pleased. The sound is phenomenal and so very detailed. I can pick out basically everything, but it's not what I would call "sterile" or "cold".
Few problems though.
1. Occlusion effect is in... well full effect. I think I may have to send these back to have the canals lengthened as I'm a vocalist and trying to sing while coping with the effect is horrendous. The left ear is alright, but still annoying. The right ear however is just horrendous.
2. The right ear is leaking ever so slightly. Obviously a fit problem and this could be causing the previously mentioned occlusion.
3. Have to fiddle around with them for a good minute to achieve a "perfect" fit. I use quotation marks because the seal breaks just a teeny bit when I sing and it breaks a little more noticeably if I smile normally (I smile like an idiot).
I'll see if my ears adjust and if I still have a problem after 1-2 weeks I think I'll send them back for refitting.
Maintaining proper seal for singers has got to be tough. Someone like me who just listens normally with a closed mouth is far less troublesome than someone like you who will be opening your mouth wide n a regular basis. Still, CIEMs were being used for singers long before us crazy audiophiles got a hold of them, so you should be able to figure it out by working with the 1964 gang.
No, warmer than that. More like LCD-2 r1 or HE400, also HD650 is closer than HD600 but still not a perfect comparison. VMODA M80 is not far off either.
Exactly. They aren't perfect in absolute terms, but are quite good and the price is certainly right.
