Darn, they have absolutely nothing in stock right now. I was looking forward to getting my impressions done and ordering. And you can't see the various driver configuration options under Flex unless it's in stock
Can anyone recommend which driver configuration I should get (once they're available)? This is my ideal sound signature:
- huge, rumbling, visceral subbass, but absolutely no midbass bloat or boominess
- mids that are relatively neutral, rich and maybe slightly warm, but I'd rather error on the side of bright rather than dark and icky sounding
- smooth, no audible peaks or harshness, especially on vocals - a lot of headpones have a problem with overblown or distorted "E" vowels
- treble that is sparkly and infinitely extended, but neutral and not emphasized above the mids
and obviously good clarity and separation, decent sound stage, etc.
By the way, what is the advantage of a twin BA over a single BA, since both drivers cover the same frequency range unlike a dual driver setup with a crossover? Probaby larger soundstage, but anything else?
Can I suggest that you contact Phil at Cosmic Ears for a recommendation to fit your needs, because if you are after "huge, rumbling, visceral sub-bass" then that may exclude some of the pure balanced armature models, straight away, and may require one of the Hybrid models. Anyway, Phil will be able to advise which model would best fit your needs.
