That being said, that doesn't mean the 6 should not be used for hip/hop of dub step....  it does very well with that genre as well.

 

I know I didn't directly answer your question....  but just focus on what it is about music you like best, in order to make the choice for an IEM/Headphone etc.

 

weren't the bass drivers in the 5 the same with the bass drivers in the 8? I don't really get the "smearing" effect... the 8 were described like very detailed (I own the heir 8 - they are detailed)

The 8 (and the 10) has two of those bass drivers, the 5 only has one.

The thing I didn't get was the 'smearing' of the sound....

@Lyp Can you compare the K10 with the UERM or other customs?

I obviously don't know this for a fact, but I'm guessing the implication is that the 5 is outputting the same (or a similar) amount of bass with one driver as the 8 accomplishes with two, and to do this a sacrifice had to be made in terms of finesse.

Again, just a guess...

Has anyone received a tracking number of a payment confirmation for any universal purchased during the Black Friday?

I don't think they have yet had their production completed, so I doubt you or anybody else would have a tracking number (as there's nothing yet to ship).  You should get a tracking number closer to Christmas, from the information that I saw earlier in the thread.  The Black Friday sale was more of a kick-off / pre-order, and that's why they used the black and gray drawings and not actual product pictures.  The final production versions don't yet exist, so there's no way they'd be shipping this soon.

Hopefully, not too long. I'm looking forward to reading the impressions/reviews, and seeing what they look like.

The 5 has slightly less detail and "finesse" in the bass, but "smearing" is a bit too strong a word to use for it I'd say.

Well Brannan used it a few posts back. I agree it's a strong word. That's why I am trying to understand why it was used in the first place. I really like the bass in Heir's 5.0. And that's while also owning the 8.a.

Engineering speak doesn't always translate well. It tends to overstate to help understanding. The bass is rounder would be the more common phrase.

Is anyone here able to compare the K10 to the JH13/JH16. I've already bought my K10 and cannot wait to get these babies in my ear, just interested in how these differ.

Well, one term we can all agree on and understand... after the black Friday sale:
Wallets... "thinner"
