does any one know how the i basso dx 50 will go with driving these iems?

All i have right now is power amp on a htc 1 i honestly dont think this will bring these guys out of their shell

 

i have read this whole thread btw ,:popcorn: it made me laugh and it made me cry , can i just say wtf people !?:blink: so dramatic in places it reminded me of breaking bad, all over again haha

but for the most part it has been excellent reading and for the most of participants i thank you for all your enlightening contributions:smile:  these new iems are gunna take a 520 $ aud chunk out of my pocket its a rare opportunity that i get this kind of cash and i really just wanted to make sure the fairest company wins hahaha thats bs btw. i just want the best sounding iem for my money btw any one thinking of going with the w4 you should go for it they are exellent and i was in love with them we used to sleep together every night they are simply a great iem , so there seems to be a bit of pressure on the sm64 since i have read on multiple occasions these are more favorable than w4s , for now i am skeptical , but optimistic so only time will tell :beerchug: 

Congrats!
I hope you will like them ;)
The DX50 is a pretty good match for the SM64, if you ask me. Has more than enough power. I would say that even your phone will do a great "driving" these IEMs.

After a "touching" and dramatic storyline, that is not a fairytale ending. :D

I think so! 

 

Also, I am not sure how the filters work and if they are consistent across everyone's pairs of SM64s. Clearly, a lot of people are happy with SM64s and they still have the filters in... My SM64s just sounded noticeably bad (but I have a good point of reference, having owned a lot of fairly high end IEMs and a pretty high end full-sized can setup).

 

Either their filters aren't messed up as mine, or they think that the filtered sound sounds good (because they don't have a good point of reference/personal preference). I know this might be the case because some people really rave on about how big the bass/sub-bass is... which is something that was very true when I had the filters in. That big (in my opinion, bloated and really overpowering bass) disappears when you take out the filters, and so I think that's a symptom of having the filters in rather than out.

 

Honestly, I originally kept the filters carefully on my desk when I removed them (in case I wanted to put them back in). But really don't because the sound is 100x better without them in (compared to the filters I had), so I was happy just vacuuming them up and never seeing them again :P. 

 

If I could describe the sound with filters in, it basically sounded like muddy HD650s... Super laid back, soft with treble-roll off, but without the imaging/resolution of the 650s. Also, a huge overpowering bass and subbass (with filters in).

I'm looking to get some new foam tips as the stock ones are at its end.

I really like the seal and sound I got with the stock foams... so am I better off with the comply iso plus tips or shure olives?

Thanks

The Phonak silicone tips are comfortable, give a quick easy seal, and improve the SM64s already impressive soundstage.

I don't dig the sound I get from silicone tips on these on certain genres. I already have a pack of westone star tips for when I want a brighter and more detailed sound.

 

Please give suggestions off what my preference is in my post.

 

Thanks
