I am really sensitive to treble and get fatigued really easily if the treble is over emphasized. With the X10 having such a small diver, wouldn't that limit its bass output? The last thing I want is to have an iem with too much treble and not enough bass.
Thanks again for your responses.
The small driver only has a little bit to do with its bass output, the seal that you get when you put them in your ear probably has a bigger effect. As for the treble I find it very smooth and not harsh at all, perfect for mid volume listening sessions of Metallica or A7K.
If you decide to get them and discover that the bass or treble is not to your liking, you can always use an equalizer, one comes built into iTunes and most Apple products with screens, as well as Windows Media Player. It has pre-programmed settings for things like bass and treble booster, as well as bass and treble reducer should you find the treble too harsh. You can even install an equalizing program to your computer with the same preset functions built in.
But that is all up to you, you will never know until you try them.
