Impossible to forget. Impossible to compare in my opinion, heard nothing like it from any headphone. The 1+2's should have their own category almost. I have a theory that somehow the propagation of sound waves due to the design of the 1+2 (P,S, and L) is somehow causing a Shear wave to somehow actually pull on your ear drum rather than a direct Pressure wave as per everything else, kind of, obviously all three are released from every headphone, but something is happening with the Shear wave on these that is definitely interacting with your eardrum differently to any other headphone I have ever heard.
More circumstantial evidence that this might be happening is the absolute need for a perfect seal, or it just won't happen.
Or maybe I am just trying to fit what I know into what I don't.
Either way, these things are in a league of their own, and I totally agree that it is totally unforgettable, the entire experience.
I was going to go for an Uber, still might, fannying around with other headphone types but at the end of the day these, to my ears, are just something that is technically much more advanced, really in a world of their own.
And oh does it sound beautiful....and the Bass....YOU WILL NOT GET IT ANYWHERE ELSE.....
For me, I still can't fix my problem with the cable popping out of my left unit, I have tried tape etc etc, it just keeps happening. The final straw was once in town when the cable popped out and I went to take out the unit from my ear, pulled it out and it slipped from my fingers, bounced on the tarmac and headed towards a drain. No damage done, but it could have seen me ordering some new ones.
So sadly for me, I can only use them inside now for fear of losing one.
This frustrates me greatly.
