You can be saved. Run, RUN from this head-fi site and never come back before it's too late! Save yourself!!!
I'm not joking either. Three months ago I didn't want any iem's. But I stuck around head-fi, found the likes of dsnuts, and game over man!
I don't know if mine don't have driver flex or if I'm just completely unable to recognize it. It may very well be the latter.
When I push one of my R1's in my ear, there is a crackling/popping sound. I am guessing that's driver flex.
I DO boost mids, though. I think I always will until I find headphones or earphones that are more mid-centric.
Not so long ago, I was heavily into EQ'ing, and I would have different presets for my different headphones (2 at the time). Then as I got more headphones and iem's (because I did not run away from head-fi), and started listening to them on more devices (SGS2, clip zip, laptop) I quickly got tired of EQ'ing and now I just listen to everything with flat EQ. So because I also like my mids, I tend to listen to my phones that are more mid-centric. I think that the moral of the story is that you can save a lot of money if you stick to EQ'ing!
