Still, I'll give them a listen first, maybe different amperage will make them sound better.


They do need amping to sound better but.. You will understand once you hear them. lol. Reread my post once you get them. Oh by the way.  They also happen to have a vice like grip. I ain't even joking about that. We are talking squeeze your eyeballs out vice like I have never experienced.  They loosen up a bit with stretching but before you even get them to that point you will understand. Especially compared to the WS99.

At first it was low end stuff to use while getting to school like the Koss KC75s and Senn CX300. Then after that I jumped to the UE TF10s, loved those and said I would never need another pair again. Boy was I wrong, ended up getting 4 more cheap (but well reviewed) IEMs since I needed a pair for going out and doing activities that I wouldn't care about breaking or losing. Now that I'm in need of a set of cans, I come to the experts hoping I'd get some help picking a pair around the $80-$100 range. After a few days of reading as many threads as I can, my budget suddenly became more flexible since these sound like they're exactly what I'm looking for and if I go with something else, I'd be missing out. My ears thank you, but my wallet despises you. atsmile.gif

I may be selling both my WS99's and Esw9a to fund some other projects so if I do I'll let you guys know here first before I post them.


Thanks,

When will you know if you're going to be selling them? I'm interested if you are planning on letting them go. I'm hoping to get a pair asap. Thanks.

No later than say Thursday they'll be posted on the For sale thread.

I'm not sure what caused the slight burnt electric smell at the bass port, but this is maybe one of the cause. I charged my C421 and using them at the same time or toggle the bass boost on, now using battery only, no bass boost, listening to speed trance, the burnt electric smell disappear. A little change on the sound signature though, I bet the time is almost ready to stable I guess. The bass tighten up a lot, the mids is liquid smooth and the treble is quite energetic but not sibilant in any way. Great all rounder, I'll keep using it frequently since I'm on study break currently. If I got a lemon one, I hope it'll show itself faster rather than later, so I could claim the warranty. Btw, to the current owner, does the right cups swivel easily, not too much resistance compared to the left one?

Please report back your opinions when you can. Thx.

Seeing as this is my first pair of headphones, I've never experienced this 'burn in' effect. From memory, my new WS99s sound a bit duller in bass and the high mids are slightly harsh compared to the ones I sampled at the store. Literally 20 minutes ago, after about 6 hours of music by this point, while I was just listening to my normal routine of music I suddenly noticed the lower bass suddenly came 'alive'. Not sure how else to describe it.

 

I've heard it takes several days worth of burn in for there to be any noticeable differences. Am I just going insane? :/

No of course not.
First bass comes alive.
Then later amped it will scare you lol

How do you rank these compared to the Denon D2000 you sold me?  Meaning the WS99.

Hahaha Max, the highs seem to have mellowed out too!

Could someone give me a brief rundown on amping? I have literally no idea how it works, practically-wise (studied the theory behind it in physics), on portable devices.

Thanks!

For those interested in the HM5 pads, if you're ordering from mp4nation (which I believe is the only source) be prepared to wait. Going on 2 weeks now, the last entry I have in the tracking on the package is:

So are the HM5 pads the go to pads to use? How much better are they than stock?
post #823 of 1713
I lost a pad while in transit on the subway today, guess I will have to get the HM5 pads also.
