Review: InEar StageDiver Series - Page 11

post #151 of 217
Hmmmm, sounds like it might be too warm for me. I really liked the UERM demo, it could have had a little more bass quantity but other than that it was pretty much perfect.

W30 it is...

So SD2 has some thicker upper bass and lusher voices, which I personally prefer.
Whereas the SD2 rolls off smoothly in the highs, the UERM shows more linear presence, but also has a peak that I noticed with the demo unit (could not be apparent with the custom).

My observation was that the UERM is very analytical whereas the SD2 is not. Personally, I'd prefer the UERM for Classical & Jazz and SD2 for everything else.

My audition of UERM was some months ago, I could feel differently today, so don't trust my opinion alone.

Joker has his review up for both StageDivers and it's nice for me to have his opinion back mine up.

I think I'd really like to compare the SD2 and SD3. I do find there is some veiling of vocals with the SD3 in comparison to the Heirs. The vocals are set back slightly by the bass. Fit wise the stagedivers knock it out of the park. These are the best fitting universals ever for me. Do the vocals come forward after more burn in? Mine have around 15 hours on them.

Unfortunately they do not rely too much on burn in ...

 

The sources also plays an important role for voice, for me with the T51 TekMOD they are clear and more highlighted than on my other sources. I am fortunate to have found a very good pairing for the SD3, with for me a perfect quantity in bass, in almost all my tracks without equalizing.

 

Merry Christmas !

Hello Ultrazino,

 

I need your opinion about the sound comparison between StageDiver SD-2 & SD-3 vs Dunu DN-1000:

 

1) Which one has the micro details/details which is very close to DBA02-MKII?

 

2) Which one has the best 3D imaging and the widest sounds stage?

 

3) Which one has the best separation for vocal and instrument?

 

4) Which one has the best "QUALITY" (not "QUANTITY" ) bass that punchy, fast, deep and extended?

 

Thanks again.

I'm sorry, I haven't heard the Dunu.

The RHA tips fit the stagedivers absolutely fine. They appear to be the same as the ortofon.

What is the best price you have seen on the stage diver 2? I appreciate any advice.

Do the Shure olives fit into the nozzle of the Stage Divers?

It looked so. Thx mate!

 

Hence i would need to get different tips than the tons that i have gathered over the years for Shures and Westones...

Any word on when the SD4's come out? I've decided that I will wait and buy those when they do... :) 

post #164 of 217

Has anyone ever try the stagediver SD-1 ?

post #165 of 217

Bit of a (vague) update of arrival SD4 and news of limited edition veneers model on other thread:
