W.I.P

10/01/2012 3:30pm EST 

  • Layout added
  • Testing Process and introduction added
  • Gear for Test  #1 #2 and #3 established
  • First song reviewed, and I need a break 

 

Testing DAP and Headphones are in two categories because atm my dt 880 is not in yet so I'll be adding to this review] Also each Dap and Headphone Combo plays different music so I'll make my review with each set and then with two songs played on both sets. I'm doing this to cover as many different angles as I can seeing as every one has different DAP and Headphone combos. 

 

Pictures and what not will be added as time goes on also, and changes will be organized into Spoiler brackets each with the date the change was added, the most recent changes will NOT be hidden.

 

Last this is my first real review plz be gentle <3

Review

Current Value- G2 Hunt (Dean Rodwell Rework)

Un amped

There's good impact, dark sound, detail could be better, minimal bleeding a little bloated, did I mention DARK

Impact is minimal, sufficient Detail, warm but again no impact

Not much in the track...

Recessed, clear, 

E6

More impact, darker, detail is same if not worse, a little more bloated, DARK and hitting hard

Impact is still unsatisfactory but improved, detail is the same, a little warmer and still not enough impact...

Not much still

More recessed, still clear, 

cMoy BB 2.03

Less Impact, still enjoyable, nor as dark, detail is improved, minimal bloating, still dark

... Angry improved impact [still not sufficient but close]  good detail, a little sharper still not enough impact

Still not much 

Brighter, not as recessed [still slightly though] , clear,
