I mainly being using the c5's with a Cowon j3 out of interest I amped the output of a samsung s3 with a fiio E17 and that combination widens the soundstage by quite a large margin compared to the j3, now to find a dac/amp for the s3.

Thanks Fuzzy, can you tell us a bit more about the bass?

We've been told by Frogbeats' manager that the C5 is V-shaped (compared to the C4),but that's not what I understand when I read your impressions.

 

I know it is a little early but I am very curious the C4 and the 5, are you planning to review the C5?

Do you think getting expedited manufacturing gets you better email response times? :P

Don't think so. Speaking of which, it has been 10 days since I have last receive an email reply from him. I really wonder what is the turnover time at the moment.

I feel that it's every week? He replied that my C4s would be done this week on monday. I'm expecting some kind of reply this week for pics.

I've just decided to opt for expedited manufacturing as well, couldn't bear to think of having to wait for over a month!

To me they seem fairly neutral the extra bass kicks in with bass enhanced recordings eg. Bassment Jaxx, Bassnectar its very detailed but then the C5's are detailed across the frequencies, stuff like Hybrid Sound system which has the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra in the mix sounds fairly neutral in the bass department. David told me they were V shaped as well as I like both V shaped and Neutral I thought of my Triple.fi's but the mid's seem only slighty recessed, Ive been listening to shure 535's for the last year which some people say are slightly mid forward so judgement might be a bit clouded on that one. Soundstage with regards to instrument placing is beyond anything I own (hd650, triple.fi, shure 535), Stereo Imaging is crazy but if ever got to tiring (I havn't yet) then a little crossfeed would tame it down.

 

I was hoping Sopp might do a impression or comparison, these are my first customs, Sopp I believe has some 1964 ears V6's so a comparison would interesting. wink.gif

How long does DHL usually take to get impressions to frogbeats? They've had my impressions for close to a week now (from singapore) and the status has gone to "on hold" in their Glasgow service area.

Is this normal or should I try to contact them about it?

Hmm, mine got there via DHL in 4 days or less. Maybe they had custom issues? You should definitely contact, but you should also expect a long response time. They're busy with holiday sales so everything is slowing down.

Here is a rough comparison about Frogbeats C5 and 1964-V6.

 

Overall, C5 and V6 have quite different sound signatures.

 

Low: I would say V6 has more bass quantity than C5.

 

Mid: V6 does a good job in this area and I do like mid to be forward/enhanced. I think C5 is very clear but not that thick/weighted for vocal. Sorry, not able to express very well.

 

High: C5 reminds me the treble I heard with F111 or Flat-Sui and even better. V6 is not sparkling comparing to C5.

How do they compare in terms of soundstaging?
