Thanks, appreciate the info.

@tupac0306 Amazing effort at quantifying CIEMS performance! This is gonna spark a lot of debate haha...

So the K10 does not score so good in vocals, dynamics and transparency... I thought these were its strengths.

I think the key strength is overall tonal balance.

I don't find these kinds of charts useful for prospective buyers without some explanation as to how the numbers were arrived at, especially when differences between models are sometimes 1 or 2 percent. Can anybody honestly hear a 1 percent difference in any facet of any piece of gear? I know the human ear can detect small changes in dB level, but human perception of the degree of change is unreliable. Also, knowing what music was used and whether or not the same music was used for each evaluation would shed some more light on this. I think |joker| does a pretty good job when it comes to thorough reviews of CIEMs, but that's just my own bias.

This is also just one persons view. The comparison is a useful starting point. One would never buy something, off just one persons tastes. No disrespect to tupac.biggrin.gif

I'm wondering what the differences are between resolution, micro-detail, and transparency...will have to consult the head-fi glossary of terms...

Reviews are always just someones opinion.

post #4226 of 23885

I have a hard time calling a table of numbers with no explanation an opinion.

It is for his own reference fyi, he posted it for yilun as he requested it before in AJ's thread and tupac did explain this chart briefly there. And no one is forcing you to take tupac's chart as gospel

I certainly don't take it as gospel, but newer members might. Thus, I feel no remorse for sharing my opinion. I did go OT, which is very un-Dude, so I'm done commenting on this.

Awaiting more pics of Wizard builds....

The chart is totally my opinion and in my own experience. It's only for a brief comparison. I know it means probably nothing since it does not talk about any sound signature, performance and so on. I did have a massive review with it. Sadly I don't think I will be able to translate it (and not interested in it either) One thing for sure. I am not biased to ANY company. This is truly what I hear. Well...maybe a little biased to Roxanne. I still can't believe how bad it sounds (to my ears) as a newest flagship...tongue.gif once after a while, I was able to convince myself to give it one more chance.. But I just couldn't keep them in my ears for more than 10 minutes before I gave up again.
