And it's presentation is not focused. Seemed like instrument separation was SO good it lacked a unified whole. More like listening to 4 great solos, but not a 4 piece band. Odd.
For Roxanne, I feel the best way is to go custom. However you do have a point in terms of instruments separation. Each instrument is so distinct it seems odd. Give it another half an hour of listening and once your mind has gotten used to it, it sounds like the best ciem in the world.
When I switched from listening to Fitear MH334, the custom Roxanne initially sounds harsh, disjointed and unruly. Nothing another fifteen minutes of listening won't fix. (likewise when you switch from Roxanne to MH334, the Fitear initially sounds dull, flat with the Soundstage collapsing, the Fitear will sounds like the best ciem in th world with silky smooth, Balanced and unbeatable clarity in half an hour of listening).
It's weird how our minds perceive the sound signature after gotten used to it.Edited by sutjahjo - 6/18/14 at 4:14pm
