I prefer sweet forward mids, deep bass and non-peaky treble. Which one would you recommend out of those 4 IEMs please?

 

I would say you will like the mids of Donguri most.

The bass is just nice.

For peaky treble, it really depends on your DAC/AMP and source. I would say Donguri is on the brighter side.

I'm trying to decide whether or not to sell my Kaede. With the HD800 and GS-X mk2 about to arrive, I am not sure that I need an in-ear full size headphone which is essentially what the Kaede is.

 

It is however sounding exceptionally good from the Calyx M. Best source yet. Still I only ever use the Kaede at home so...

 

Decisions, decisions...

If it helps, initially I went the same route. Sold all my portable gear including the Kaedes. Purchased a Yulong DA8 and a pair of HD800. Some months later I was back searching the FS like creazy to find another pair. I waited for 4-5 months for them to pop up again. I remember when I initially posted the thread there were like 3-4 other going for sale.

 

I'm not going to ever sell them I think.

^ Good feedback. Thanks. I am definitely not selling all my portable gear but like I said, I never use the Kaede as a portable. It is as home IEM.

Maybe it's time to take your first walk with them ;)

FYI, Kaede sounds berry berry good with the RWAK240.

I believe that. Kaede has its own funky harmonic resonance thing going with the dual driver and tornado tube. It loves a clean source.

Does the Calyx or 240 tame the highs at all? Had it before I lost it. Loved the sound a lot except the highs could get quite hot at times.

Will try more tomorrow. But the 240 generally does not tame highs.

I can't believe you sold them... wow. I wouldn't have, but then again, it's hard to stay the course here.

Yea, I sold them and I repurchased my own pair back. It seems they are my destiny wink.gif

The M directly driving the Kaede has an impedance matching issue that I am working on but this combo is fabulous. And yes, it does tame the Kaede's highs somewhat. I always found them to be a bit of an issue too. I find this combination to be energetic but not too hot.

I am keeping my Kaede too. I pulled back from the brink.  :-)
