However, somehow unexpectedly, they also beat my full headphones (HE-400) in these and a number of ways. N4 are more transparent and neutral, somehow never harsh and sibilant as HE-400 often are. Soundstage and bass are still better on HE-400, but in every other way I prefer the N4. What a great headphones.

 

I may post more impressions and comparisons next week. Tomorrow I should receive DN-1000 -- a hybrid of two armatures and one dynamic driver. Wonder how these stack up against N4.

 

N4 are sounding more and more like the IEM for me... How is the bass on them ? I know its not the biggest around but how is it's accuracy and pace ? 

 

Also anyone with the Sony NW ZX1 trying it with N4s or N6s ?

I wouldn't mind being on top of the milf on the shopping-channel...

 

this video from Dylan is really clever, there's loads of channels... I'm up to No. 5

 

swap out your Noble's when you change to a different channel... it's interactive, enjoy.

Actually i was all set to get some N6s but from what i have read around Head-fi the bass is a bit too north of neutral for me.

I got the N6's but my ZX1 is out on loan :confused_face:

I want to borrow it next, but I also want some N4's. Of course by borrow, I mean for like 5 years.

Depends on where you're coming from.. IEM's experienced before and what you expect to hear? 

 

Accuracy and pace in the lower freq. regions is at least on par/much better with all the Rockit/B-2/Vsonic and a few others using similar dual TWFK driver design. I have owned most of them so I'm not second guessing although I base my opinion on a very vague memory so that is indeed a very critical factor...

 

Fast, accurate and added a few DB's of mid bass level and similar extension into sub-bass. So overall a IMO a lower frequency improvement, how significant this actually is can be a very individual taking.  

 

Full amount of bass level/impact etc I consider to be relative much higher, so overall more bass presence compared to what I mentioned, relatively speaking and depending on where you are coming from? 

 

To me at least the bass quantity/quality is indeed very,more than very good, but it doesn't mean that anyone else will experience the same..

bollox... I opened the door on that one.

post #1439 of 5525

Thanks for the responses... i will be looking out for impressions...

 

I am using two very very different IEMs at the moment.. Senni IE80 and FitEar F111.. Actually that's not really true since i haven't listened to the IE80s for a year or more (must sell them).

 

I really really like the Fitears basic sig which is essentially neutral and i think the N4s may be similar but possibly more refined with better clarity and separation of voices and instruments and also better bass...

 

That's what i hope anyway....and it's what i want.

First of all, please excuse this potentially controversial post. Here's a fellow head-fier's account of how he's been in great anticipation for his first pair of custom IEMs and suffered an unpleasant surprise today:

 

http://www.techenclave.com/community/threads/random-iem-headphone-rants.106883/page-102#post-1910793

 

Believe it or not, I personally don't have a skin in the game. I haven't even been following this thread until today. But I've talked to the guy, suggesting he post his experience on head-fi, and he dismissed it on grounds that it would be deleted anyway.

 

So, here's my personal appeal to both MOTs and mods/admins: please be more open and transparent, particularly when comes to dealing with unpleasant issues. Sh*t like that happens and I feel for you, but trying to keep a lid on things creates exactly the kind of environment in which conspiracy theories flourish. Anyone who doesn't find info on something like this even three days after the event, will sure as hell start putting two and two (and what-not-else) together...

 

Thanks for hearing me out. :smile_phones:
