Wish I could afford a BH2 atm!

Currently got a Cowon J3 which is a very good player but of course not as powerful as the C3.

I just discovered a new set of tips that makes the Basso sound more balanced!

Still doing more comparisons to make sure I'm hearing things right.

Reveal coming up soon...

from my mac air, my RS HORNET through an audioquest dragonfly and aq emerald mini cable sounds delightful.  w/TENORES  plenty of bass! very controlled

new Michael Franti album released today sounds splendid off amazon cloud player ( which usually sounds thin).

still curious about that C3 BH2 basso synchronicity however!!!  what makes it sound so special??

 

considering the IFI usb power unit to clear up usb sac thinness. its gotten fantastic reviews! and its not a battery (not quite sure how it works, technoshamanism  at work here)

the muse sac i have sounds great with a five pound external battery attached, but its a bit unportable!!!

For those who feel the Basso's bass are a bit too much, these tips are the "fix" that they need.

Stay tuned...

d marc0 = king tease lol!

post #787 of 3546

do we have to tip you to find out what the tips are? ha! im at the tipping point wondering about these wonders!

listening to my ATH CKM99s after reading JSnuts comments on them again.;;  the Bassos are more refined than the CKM99s, but the 99s have more power...

and that AT sound.  maybe another 300 hours of burn in will tame the harsh highs also (sic) or maybe saving up for the CKS1000s will be the holy grail....

this is a labyrinthian quest......the 99s sure are addictive though....sound like a trip feels at a great shpongle or psytrance concert .......whoa...

I still have a few more comparisons to do. I'm currently at work that's why I haven't finished it yet. Rest assured you'll know as soon as I get home and finish my evaluation. Cheers!

That makes me wonder if I should have gone with 99s as I prefer more in your face sound.

Basso's are very good but they still seem kind of laid back.

Have you tried the JVC FX3X? I reckon that is what you're looking for.
post #792 of 3546

hey d marco and friends,

no i havent tried the JVX DX3X  what is it you recommend about them?

the 99s are definately "more in your face" or in the your ears, than the Bassos,

but the bassos have a better sound stage and instrument separation and more

bass impact instead of spread out bass...

99s still have a brighter treble that can get annoying compared to the Bassos

more balanced sound...im beginning to think the Bassos are a real breakthrough product

but then again i havent heard the cks1000 yet...which may be the wow...

Nah not tried them but seeing as they budget IEMs I assumed they would have not much detail or seperation.

Nah, lately people seem to have changed their perception of what in you face is. The fx3x is pretty laid back to put it mildly.

It's a decent iem if you want a lot of bass but first you have to pay me a substantial compensation for the use of my "Nah" in you post

I'm shocked to know that "in your face" is now more like "slap in the face"! Lol. I can't believe people are really into "more" is better.

FX3X could have been the ultimate bass headphone for me if it didn't cause fatigue to my ears. They are quite detailed, airy, decent separation, and massive thumping BASS! I really liked it coz it wasn't boomy at all. I just couldn't fix the fatiguing part. It wasn't even too sibilant to my taste. But IMO, the FX3X is one of the most "in your face" sounding IEM I've tried.
