I always use Impulse Response samples, freq response charts, or Accudio from Golden Ears to EQ the best out of my iems/headphones. I just tuned my M50, and the QB2 just aren't beating that sound. Once charts appear for these, I think I can get these to come close.

 

Keep in mind, these are $30 and the M50 is $150 retail, so that says a lot.

The treble and mids of the QB2 don't need EQ at all if you get the right fit IMO. I just tame the bass with Equalizer app, Accudio has poor UI.

so i just got my pair, heard them for the first time now.

gott'a say i'm a little disappointed...mainly because of the treble.

a very similar treble to my Klipsch S4, with that "sssss" and a shallow sound.

mids could use a bit more presence, and the sound is overall on the thin side.

bass is good.

what drew my attention to these in the first place was how comfortable they

seem, and i have to say, they are.

this design is much better than a straight barrel and they just fit lovely.

on the other hand, the stiff flat cord is annoying.

i don't believe in burn-in, but i'll play music through them just in case over-night.

You're definitely getting a poor fit, try going deeper, these are not sibilant, the GR07 and S4  are easily more sibilant.

They communicate the most relevant information, matter of fact, all the reported "changes" by people are concerning FR, which you would think the measurements will back, but they don't, burn-in is mostly psychological.As for b, show the proof,otherwise it's just an assumption.

Alright coolios, can't wait to see that write-up. Thanks meng appreciate the effort.

 

It's pretty trippy to see a banned tag under you name and see you posting.

 

Damn like seeing as ghost or something, which isn't any different from normal, tbh. :tongue:

That write up already written is good enough, these simply beat the S2 and GR07BE for me. As for the MH1C, do note I have an MH1  which is a bit less bassy and doesn't have the control issues of MH1C. I don't get what you mean by "do it right", write up is already proper, simple and to the point....Yes my mention of the MH1 was a tease, a more detailed write-up is coming, I can tell you now, it's more even than expected.

LoL dood you mean those little blurbs you peppered here and there??? C'mon if these are as good as you say they are then they deserve a much more in-depth comprehensive review/ write-up.

 

Those few sentences ain't gonna cut it man.

Oh haha, just thought you were saying that THAT was ALL you were gonna write on them. N/M My mistake, just want to see your more in-depth write up that's all.

 

My input is to ask where you are trying to go with these, as many like myself are very much interested.

 

But since you already addressed it, we good. :)

My QB2 is still nowhere to be found! it's been 3 weeks and Korea Post tracking still showing Air shipment processed Oct 25! I have no choice but to wait. :mad:

 

After gifting my MH1c to a close friend I realised my mistake. I should have kept it so I can have something as a standard for my preferred sound refinement and signature.

So, I reordered a brand new MH1 live sound headset for $15 with free shipping. So this will be exciting for me as well!

 

Now here's to hoping that they both arrive at my place safe and sound...

Inks! i'm not geting a poor fit, i have experience with quite a few IEMs...i know the difference between good/poor fit.

the Klipsch S4 *does* exhibit worse sibilance, but still, theres this "sssss" which the quadbeat2 treble produce.

i'm growing more fond of it as time passes though, and i think i like these IEM better each day.

what bothers me most is the cable.

i'm wearing them looped over the ear, while switching the l-r channels.

i do have to fiddle with the fit this way, until i get a good seal, but cable noise is all but gone this way.

these are, in any case, better than my S4 :)
