EarSonics S-EM6 Six driver universal IEM - Page 18

They don't change the sound sig, S-EM6 will stay the same though the change of colour.

sounds good.
Im a fan of the SM64, but with a lower impedence on the s-em6 is there any downside?

I guess that makes it more prone to hiss with a poopy source.
Don't quote me on that though :-D

Wasn't that a good part about the SM64? You don't get hiss or whatever background noise from your source because of the high impedance but you could also run them easily with decent volume because of the high sensitivity?
I never had DAP etc. with a non-black background so I can't verify that.

Interesting..

When I moved from my SM3 to the SM64, I had to run my RSA Shadow louder. 

This was fine when I'm on the RSA. But there was a considerable volume lost when I connect to lesser amped sources eg. laptop. 

I don't really hear any noticeable hiss on both though. 

I actually had this conception that lower impedance IEMs / headphones will distort more than high imped ones when driven louder. <-- is this true?

The sound signatures are very different, so there is also that!

Although I find it interesting that the S-EM6 sound signature is different than the EM6.

Some sources will have more difficulty driving higher impedance IEMs, which affects the sound and may affect distortion, but there is no general rule that a higher impedance will distort more at louder volumes.

i enjoyed edm with the sm3 and sm64 v2.
do you think the s-em6 will excel in this genre as well?

Take the 1p2 it is better on edm. S-Em6 will, obviously better than sm3 & sm64 v2 but i am not using it for edm.

It depends if you want something smooth or something accurate, both are very good for EDM, just question of taste IMO.

post #264 of 558
Thanks, i will try the Tralucent 1P2 sometime.
I quite enjoyed the ES sound eversince moving away from Westone, so i guess im going to order a pair of s-em6, to be safe. smily_headphones1.gif

I agree the S-EM6 might not be the best choice for EDM, but it depends on how you like it.  I personally prefer the SM64 with EDM, and if you haven't read my brief comparison between the SM64 and S-EM6 here, give it a read so you know what you will get.  IMO, EDM is generally better with less midrange forwardness and more overall spaciousness; I am not sure how the 1P2 fits that.

That is what 1p2 has compare to the S-EM6 ;)

I guess what I'm going after here is the "warm" signature of Earsonics, I find it better for EDM, and its none fatiguing. 

Wanted to test the Westone W40 over the weekend but tried the Shure SE846 instead (using default filters), and i find the treble too harsh almost piercing - not as smooth as my SM64 v2.

I then amp the 846 with a Pico Slim, only then did the treble tone down a bit. 846 has quite a bit of slam in the bass dept but doesn't go deep. 

 

Actually haven't of Tralucent, are they are new in the business?

Does anyone know if the Crystal version is going to be a one piece integral shell as opposed to the back-plate design that the Black version has?

How can they put drivers in? :D

post #270 of 558
haha im not sure really.
i havent been catching up the audio scene for a while, thought the technology might have advanced when i saw those highend ciems that looked like they were molded off a single piece, couldnt see any seams at all.
