For $60 smackers i'll pick these Logans over the Ostriches everytime. ;)

 

Great lil' iem but......

... don't really sound all that unique to me sadly.

I'm hoping that he's WRONG WRONG WRONG about them though!

I don't get the "harsh highs" thing on the 90's. Experienced it with various iem's and some headphones, but never with the 90's (either pair). Odd!

Maybe it's the tightness of the headband. I'll try and adjust it when my second pair arrives wink.gif

I like the 90 apart from its harshness lol

No harshness for me either.  The highs are excellent.

u guys think it's  a good idea picking up a FAD heaven4? 

post #5035 of 6153

Not sure avout the 4's, but the V's are definitely highly regarded.

post #5036 of 6153

v temptg...

Anyone else is having their headphone pads getting detached from the caps? They start getting loose for me, just like that, without a valid reason. I'm trying to put them back but they keep getting released around the top and bottom edges. 

 

Is there a simple way to fix this problem?

You know there is definitely something in their upper registers that can make these Logans sound fatiguing. And i think trunks has mentioned this before, but the harshness is most likely the result of the crazy forward upper mids. Which i found can be pretty fatiguing esp. if you listen at higher volumes. Despite the treble is crazy extended i don't found it to be that fatiguing, so maybe it if the crazy extension of the treble combined with the forwardness of the upper mids which makes these Logans sound a bit "harsh" esp. for high volume/ long listening sessions. Just my 2 cents....

Exactly, even the re700s experience this problem.

 

I can't even enjoy sting's seven days song because of those upper mids, ugh...

 

Or any wapunese music, especially pop.

 

Other than that, the treble itself is awesome.

Oh i also forgot to add that the fatiguing factor is GREATER diminished if your sources are a bit warmer with less of an analytical/ cold sound. As it has been stated tons of tymes these Logans scales beautifully to your sources so a great way to counteract those upper mids is a source change. I would imagine the FiiO X5 would gel better for these Logans than say the DX90s due to their slightly warmer but yet very transparent sound. But you never know though, and i wish some peps that own the X5 and the DX90s can chime in and give us some useful impressions.

 

I am still crazy happy with my FiiO E17 dac via my vali amp, and it seems that these Logans gels pretty damn nicely with the Geek Out i just got, and should be amazing as well hooked to the vali using the geeks dac. So pretty excited to try these Logans out that way. RE_HYPED!!! :ksc75smile:
