Maybe NT6 pro can do that? If AJ or other users can shed some light about the soundstage type I would appreciate it.


I do not know the NT6 Pro. I think both SE5 and Miracles are very immersive and put you in the middle of the music. But that's just my modest opinion...

Do you think you will ever get NT6 or NT6 pro?

I wanted to yes, and I also want a pair of Fitear, 435 or 335. But I already have 2 ciems and 3 universals, soon 4, all great. I have a hard time listening to all. Plus it is so hard to have a source for all...so it is getting complicated.

I could also take Japanese FitEar MH335DW but I think they don't sell outside of Japan? Do you have any information regarding to this? I heard nothing but excellent things about FitEar.

 

There is also American Fit-Ear manufacturer, it is a different one from Japanese brand apparently. I wouldn't choose such a name to enter to the market honestly.

Just to clarify the american Fitear has been here for a long time and do not really operate on the same geographical market as Japanese Fitear.

Secondly, I havr listened to 335 a couple of times, and while it is amazing, it is IMO the OPPOSITE of what you are looking for. It is thick and bassy and a bit dark. Maybe the 435 would be better, but have not tried them.

What am I looking for is really complicated at the moment happy_face1.gif Even I am having difficulties to explain it. Did you check the multi ciem comparison thread, I tried to explain a bit with the help of a chart. I am really having problems on deciding I must say, sometimes it makes me feel so stupid.

I think they have good soundstage; quite wide, moderate depth, manages to get the sound outside your head on the right recordings. Puts you in the middle-front of the auditorium, rather than up on stage with your nose in the trumpet horn or way in the back of the theater.

 

They have the same problem I have with all IEMs, of superseparated left/right channels. It's inherent to how IEMs work. Some people are more sensitive to this than others, or find it harder to get used to. If you have other IEMs and the phenomenon doesn't bother you on the music you listen to, you will appreciate the soundstaging of the NT-6 Pro.

 

I don't find them too trebly -- I bought these specifically to get a flatter sound at low volumes than a more neutrally tuned IEM would provide (at low volumes, the highs and lows are disproportionately dampened; see the Wikipedia entry on the equal loudness curve for why). At louder volumes the highs and lows are pronounced, but not distractingly so.

What pin type is the right one for nt6 pro? Ue? Fitear?
post #129 of 476

UE/Westone fit mine, although not a perfect size match as the pins are ever so slightly larger than average (0.1mm).

Do you know if shure se535 size pins would fit better thanks, also do you know any cable makers who offer cables with pin sizes that will perfectly match the nt6 pro? I really don;t want to spend hundreds on a cable that doesn't fit perfectly, thanks.

Reading through my notes, the original cables were the non-standard ones and the current cables should fit fine.  If not, you can make any pin slightly larger (and stretch any socket a bit),

Oh alright that makes sense. I have one more question regarding cables, seeing that you have tested and compared many cables, which cable do think has the best sq with the nt6 pro?

To be honest, I haven't had a chance to do much cable testing with the NT-6 pro, and it depends on what sound you are looking for.  The Hybrid V3 was an improvement, but it wasn't huge.  I will be testing some cables in the upcoming months if you can wait.

Really any cable that will have the best detailing among other technicalities, but while also having good body and weight to the sound so that the sound isn't brittle or unnatural if you know what I mean. That's awesome, is there any chance you would be testing cables by double helix too? They have this new cable for iems called the symbiote fusion that seems to be getting some praise.

What is everyone's best mobile setup for their NT6 Pros? Has anyone tried the HM-901, Dx100, and/or the AK120 or even the X3 with them to see how they pair or which pars best?
