There are many different cosmic ears! It is a little tricky to understand which one works better for my taste.
I currently own a Vsonic gr07 mkii that i found very bright and with thin bass. It's a very good on the technical side but a little boring, flat. The only way i can enjoy is to boost the bass about 6db and rolloff the treble on 7-8khz for the spike. So I like a solid bass let's say like the Sennheiser Amperior or px100ii (its more midbass) with a good treble nor harsh or sibilant. As I understand this CE are on the safe side for the treble so its a good news for me. Which model will have the bass i need?
I need to decide between:
HY2, HY2XB, XY3, XY3XB, BA3.
I mailed CE and they say the most bass quantity will be the XY2XB. I dunno if it this model will work for me.
None of the CE models have harsh treble. It sounds like you're a basshead so the normal HY2 and HY3 models probably don't have the exaggerated bass you're looking for.
Of the remaining models:
Bass quantity: HY3XB = HY2XB > BA3
Mids: BA3 = HY3XB > HY2XB
Highs: BA3 > HY3XB > HY2XB
Note that most of the people on this thread who own CE models are non-bassheads and prefer relatively neutral sound, so even though they say the HY3XB has an insane amount of bass, it may only sound like a moderate boost to your ears if you're a basshead.
After annoying Phil with all of my questions, I've come to the following conclusions:
- If you like powerful exaggerated subbass without sacrificing much in the mids or highs, get HY3XB.
- If you're a basshead and don't mind sacrificing a little bit of separation in the mids and highs for less money, get HY2XB.
- If you want great overall sound qualtiy and a relatively balanced signature with a little extra warmth in the midbass, get BA2.
- If you want the quality of the BA2 but want a more fun signature with boosted midbass, get BA3.
Hope this helps!
