Ok, when I thought the sound was getting more similar it was just the DX50 burning in, changing the sound with both batteries to be more refined. At this point in time the differences I noted still stand. And to further my suspicion of the KINPS battery being more powerful, there is a VERY large pop through the earphones with the KINPS battery, on turn on, with the stock battery its just a little click on turn on (both on high gain). I will be honest I have found that I prefer the stock battery with some of my earphones, and the KINPS battery with some, as they offer different sound signatures.
The stock battery has more treble and also better treble extension but sounds sibilant with some earphones, others it sounds great, the stock battery has a more natural and transparent midrange. The bass is rolled of, sub bass mostly is absent, mid bass is decent. The stock battery sounds more balanced leaning towards bright, with sibilant treble with some earphones and sub bass roll of with some earphones, but great mids.
The Kinps battery has more bass, and better bass extension, sub bass is just as loud as mid bass, The mids aren't as real as the stock battery a bit less defined and more smooth, hard to explain, Its kind of like the stock battery has sparkle in the mids, just like it has sparkle in the treble, The Kinps battery tames the sound, it sounds less refined in the end due to the stock battery having a more airy sparkly mids. The treble also has much less sparkle and a bit less in amount than stock battery. The Kinps battery is a V shaped sound, with the mids being smooth, while the treble has more energy than the mids, and the bass right next to the treble.
Decided I can't resist trying out a samsung battery, does anyone know where I can get the fabled Made in Japan Samsung battery?
