New custom IEM company - Custom Art: discussion, review, and impressions thread - Page 27

post #391 of 3473

was about to order Music Two but i know that i will be using them for less than 3 months or maybe two! so would be kind of wasted.

decided to wait for the Harmony here, in case the Treble will be a match for JH13 Pro and NT Pro 6, then yes i will go for it, else no point into going there :< i am a super Treble Head thats why.

As regards P and S version, to my ears:

- S have a lot of hiss; P have just a slight amount of hiss;

- S have very fatiquing and harsh high; P have more smooth highs.

I were to choose I would take P version, but this is an issue of subjective preferences.


I have the Pro330 S version.  The highs are great with nice extension.  I have never found them to be harsh or sibilant.  This could be a result of my ears/age (less treble sensitive) but there are many bright headphones that cause me listening fatigue and the Pro330s have not done so.

I imagine a lot of it is trying to get the venting just right. As you know CustomArt is the only company to do vented drivers in silicone, and it goes beyond just boring out a hole behind the vent to let more air expand; the amount of volume displaced actually helps determine how much and where in the bass band the venting helps boost. I imagine he wanted to preserve the extra sub-bass while not boosting the rest of the bass too much. Fine-tuning that stuff is not easy to do! Silicone assembly is already complicated, and using venting just complicates it more --- these IEMs take quite a bit of time to get right.

 

The AcuPass driver is excellent (which is why so many are already using it, despite being a product that hasn't been released for more than 10 months) and I have confidence that the Music Two will sound excellent! I imagine it will outstrip many expectations of what a dual driver can do --- I've heard a number of demo incarnations of this driver and have been impressed in each case. The only few issues I've had with it is the relative lack of layered texturing in the bass region when the vent is closed (not a problem with the Music Two) and the slightly rough nature of the treble (silicone and the horn design will help in this regard, I imagine). Previously, I'd be considering getting a Pro210, but the Music Two is making me think twice, very hard.

I think that's it, I believe my next ciem will be from Peter, Custom Art. All I need is a good dap at the moment, after that I can return back to hunt for a new ciem. Those venting system in silicone earpiece got my attention. Peter surely is a very talented man apparently, I am dieing to experience his product. Also, to be honest, the comfort of silicone is quite something too, I don't think I will try acrylics later on while we have companies like Spiral Ear, Custom Art, I can stay in silicone earpiece world.

I've never really had any issues with acrylic in terms of comfort assuming fit is good. However I may have to agree that my next custom could very well be from Peter.

I apologize if already stated but what would be the main differences in the Music One and Music Two as far as presentation and frequency response?

Peter wrote that Musice Two has more bass, more organi mids and more treble extension in comparison to Music One and that Music Two is the real upgrade to Music One.

When I heard S version I was not able to listen to it because it was so fatiquing. Others claimed that I listened to them with weak amp (in terms of power), but I don't think so; although fiio e07k does not have huge amount of power but one cannot say it is weak. Afterwards Peter told me that I probably listened to the damegd version so maybe my listening experience resulting from this fact.
When I listened to P version I did not have comparison to S version, but P version was not fatiquing or harsh or sibilant and it definitely had more less amount of hiss.

I get a sense of air from the Pro330.  Before I had them adjusted I thought the treble was a little bright; after they came back the balance was excellent.  I haven't experienced any listening fatigue from any of my customs.  The CT-500 treble does seem to roll off before the Pro330's but Clear Tunes is clearly aiming their product at performing musicians so it's expected in a stage monitor, I assume the Pro330 P version is offered for the same reason.
