i am actually a total newb on this forum.

and is it worth buying a dac or amp for this easy to drive ciem. ?

Welcome Killer,congrats for your purchase.Well,i think that an amp and a dac would always benefit,but you have to check it by yourself,or may you can ask to some more experienced users around here.

BleaK,

 

I am wondering if you feel the V3 would work in a pinch or "casually" as a reference type CIEM or is it too colored? I have been thinking about getting them but I do occasionally do some "mobile" mixing and mastering. Of course my primary focus with them is for stage use, which is sounds like they are perfect for.

 

Nice review,

D

Project,i have already asked you many question,but which between the V3 and the 8.A is more bass heavy in your opinion?they seem to be the end of the line for my sounding IEM preferences,

I don't know if i have to save and wait until beginning december (A loooong time) for having enough money and some promotional sale from the Wizard to buy an 8.A or maybe it is too much bassy in relation to the V3 ,that still does not have the same abilities then the  8.A.bigsmile_face.gif

Yeah, I think they would work for that kind of purpose as well. They are quite balanced although they have some color to them.

Thanks,

 

One last question for everyone: could someone compare the V3 to Shure 535's they are the only triple driver headphone that I have experience with and would like to hear others comparisons, And I am pretty much down to buying one of these two iem's.

 

Thanks again,

D

The 8.A is more bass heavy - somewhat more by volume, but significantly more by "feel" because it has deeper extension. So it feels more even more prominent than it may actually be, objectively speaking. But I don't feel like it's too much at all. Just right when I'm in the mood for bass.

Well,great.
The point is that i am really in a limbo between the V3 and the 8.A as one of them will be my only pair of customs ,as maybe i have sad already.
 
A nice and enfatized Drums representation with a great accuracy and musicality (which both products have) seems to be the nice choice between a lot of people.But the question is : Will be the bass accentuation maybe be too much?The only way to know ,well we all know.
Thanks 86

They both sound good for the price and both companies are great to deal with. In the end you just need to decide - what's your budget? Can you be happy with the V3 or will you already wonder about the 8.A and wish you would have saved up for it? That's the real question. 

post #84 of 175

hahaha,that's exactly what i am wondering right now.Well from you reviews and others member point of views both seem to handle greatly with most of energic genres;I have been intrigued by the V6,but to shorten the choosing range i discarted it for now.

At the moment i am more prone and willing to gain some patience ,save some money until December and for the 8.A price to go a little down.I just hope they accept hard acrylic impression because of the great distance between Brazil and China,so those mold won't shrink as opposite as those made in silicon.

 

BTW,when you will get some V6 to let us now how do you thing about them?They may send you a free pair.biggrin.gif

I've sent impressions to CIEM companies all over the globe and never had a shrinkage issue. Anecdotally it takes anywhere from 3 months to 6 or even 12 months before significant shrinkage occurs. Shipping should only take 4-6 weeks at the most, to reach Heir or 1964 or whoever you choose. So unless they let your impressions sit there for a few months, you'll be fine. 

 

I have not yet approached 1964 about the V6, as I'm really busy with other reviews. Maybe one of these days.

I find that it might be worth it to insvest in something good which don't hiss. My V3 makes noise with everything I have (even my ipod) excluding the O2. I am on my way for saving up for a leckerton mkii 6, since I have been told that it has no hiss and are a really good portable amp with a decent dac.
