Also when someone says "the bass on a earphone is so good", it doesn't mean the earphone sound great within 20 - 250 Hz, but in 20 - 200000 Hz. When we listen to drums, we are not only listen to the main body of the sound, we also listen to it's overtune, e.g. the air, the clarity, the directions, the resolutions and etc, which will require the integration of mid and high frequency ranges.

 

That was what I was trying to say actually, if we are changing the bass and trying to detect that change, should everything else remain constant (ceteris paribus)? I had thought that it was mainly the quantity that changes when we turn the knob. I figure the quality of the bass might change slightly too.

 

Suppose we turned the knob and kept the bass volume constant, to your ears, is there a radical change in the quality of the bass?

Actually no, I find the bass to maintain its quality (clarity, speed and extension) when I change its quantity. The impact increases a lot, but I didn't feel it was bloated even at its maximum (it shouldn't because it's not equalization). But I do appreciate the bass more when I have over 20% gain.

Oh that's great to hear, thanks! I had wanted the tunable bass for when I commute on single-decked buses, the rumbling sound of the engine drowns out the bass and I sometimes wish for them to hit harder. It's fine when I'm up on the second deck and when I'm in quieter places. The Roxannes might help with my situation a lot then :D

someone should do a more user friendly contraption. I'm more into the minimalist side of things. Sounds inconvenient to be carrying a screwdriver all day.

Hope the aftermarket makers are listening. smily_headphones1.gif

Am certainly with you on that one. I don't like the fact that I have to tune it to my liking, I just want to like how they sound for what they are. Not have to adjust and tweak them based on how the song sounds.

You don't have to. Just fix it to the amount of bass you want. You are not required to change the setting for every song you play. You can even get a cable with a fix resistance so you don't have to manually fix it if the will float your boat.

Just got my carbon Roxanne!!!

Surprisingly the case and the Roxanne itself are great quality!
I was so nervous I could barely open it!
They fit great in my ears!
The only thing I found strange is that they are coming out of my ear by quite alot! By about 1cm!
Is this something to worry about?


The very first second I listened to them I was kind of disappointed... It just didnt really get me...
But after a few minutes that changed... I dont know if it was the Roxanne or me...
Maybe it was because the case and the Roxanne were so cold when I got them...


Now I have to think about a new player for my baby!

1 cm is a lot, but for me also it come out quite a bit more than my previous Customs (Westone ES3X), because the Roxane are quite big (they need to fit 12 drivers in each IEM). May be 4 milimeters. 

 

And also, after 10 hours break-in, it sound much better now.

Fantastic news that there are some CFs appearing- can't wait to see the pictures to be posted.

In other news... and more localised to me I guess...

136 days elapsed and counting...

Thank you

These don't look bad at all. In fact, I'd say they look pretty flush. You need a head on shot to get a good feeling of how much they really stick out though I guess.
