I'm still quite new to the world of IEMs, and while I understand terms like decay speed, tight, punchy- in theory- I am not sure of practical applications. So what I've been doing is using a track by a newish band, Purity Ring, called Belispeak to test bass speed. I highly recommend it. Here, I'll post a link since it's relevant to the question:
So, I guess my question is, would this be a good song to test the speed and decay of IEMs? And since my ears are still somewhat poorly attuned to minor nuances between different dual-BA phones, could someone recommend what to listen out for when comparing? I get that I can listen for transparency, seeing whether one instrument merges into another, but I am still unsure of how to listen out for decay and "speed."
