Anything wrong with what you're hearing will improve with burn-in.

Kimvictor, if i may ask what source you using? burn in do exist but straight from the box i never found H200 mids shouting. yes H200 is somehow mid centric, warm, bassy but well detailed IEM. mids are particularly outstanding making voices sound very intimate ... what i wonder if there is perhaps some bad synergy with the source or is this ear burn in required if you come from some V shaped sounding IEMs.

 

whatever is true pls give them some time to burn in and report back your findings.

 

Oof, yes, agree, this is why some audiophiles spend all their time on forums instead of listen to music tongue.gif

seriously you cannot be serious mate :-D

The slight spike/peak/shout some members are experiencing does ease to the point I cannot hear it anymore. I have a rather crazy story about my H-200's which I have not shared on the boards yet. When I received them out of the box I could sense a slight peak in the upper mids, (it's been mentioned in my first impression) it was only with some vocals but luckily simply went away with a source or tip change within the first hours, I never heard it again until.........

About two weeks later after they arrived back from loan/demo, (probably about 20 hours on them) I was using H-200 one evening and they sounded great, true H-200 sound. Only in the morning I put them on and there was a peak again in the upper mids from out of no-where, this time fairly obvious indeed, so much so, I became worried. How could this be I said? I have owned them now for a while, they were fine last night and now this from out of nowhere. What I hadn't done was any dedicated burn in besides the hours they were used by me and another member.

Becoming rather worried and annoyed at the sound to the point I was putting them down, I tried in one last attempt to give them 12 hours burn in at rather high volume, in desperate hope the peak would subside. No word of a lie, in the morning I put them on and the peak had all but gone, it was still slightly present but nothing like it was the day before, and has now gone away all together. I was rather dumbfounded, but so relieved it did work.

I am not the biggest believer in BA burn in, but these did change, and anyone who's been following the thread since day one will of seen some members reporting a slight peak in the upper mids at first then you don't hear about it again. So that is why I suggest they get some hours on them, because for me something that became rather noticeable out of no-where has now disappeared completely, I've not heard it again.

Call it what you want, bull****, placebo, tales from a mad man, what happened, happened to my pair, to my ears and I'd been tossing up whether to share it here. So for those with new pairs make sure they get some burn in hours and the peak should settle.

Well, the shouting is not that bad. My source is leckerton uha 6s mkii, which has dead flat sound.

lol, yeah that was my underlying point, but I was in a snippy mood when I posted so I gave no hint of the intended sarcasm.  redface.gif

Kimvictor, i suppose you wait for burn in, leckerton must be good source indeed and it can well be perhaps some synergy problem, but never underestimate the so-called ''brain burn in and ears burn in'', coming from different sound signature also takes time to get used to new sound signature. then you decide if you like it or not.

The peak makes it a bit sibilant, but it is still good. I eqed the bass down few dbs, and it is perfect.

I'm thinking these are sensitive to insertion depth and since our insertion depths are never always exact those slight mishaps see the peak come and go.

It happened to my pair for a full day, from that morning I mentioned above right through the day over several different sessions on/off using different sources, (only 12 hours before they were fine) I really wish there was a reasonable explanation for what happened, I am not the firmest believer of any BA burn in to start with, but what was very noticeable disappeared again after letting it run out. I don't blame you guys for thinking I'm crazy, I simply can't figure out what happened.
post #1092 of 2550
Again think its insertion, it comes and goes like that, I've experienced it myself. Remember a Shure engineer said there is no BA burn-in, I know a couple of others that agree.

Why everytime we discuss something must it come down to right vs wrong? this is true, this isn't? Why can't I of just heard something and people leave it at that.

Over it totally, I just posted what I heard, I'm not interested in debating whether it's true or not Inks.
post #1094 of 2550
Hmm I'm not questioning what you're hearing, just providing an explanation, I've had a similar experience :/
post #1095 of 2550
Sorry Inks, I just get a little touchy sometimes, I understand you're trying to help.

I apologize for being abrupt. .
