Mini-REVIEW: MOE Audio SS01 (WARNING: Tongue-In-Cheek and Tacky) - Page 5

post #61 of 71

He tends to be quite strict about separating technical proficiency from enjoyment for the ratings, so he could potentially like an 8 phone more than an 8.9 one.

From the legend himself:

 

"You know, the MOE did start out around an 8.5 like 3 months ago but the more I listened to it the more the upper midrange bothered me. I ended up listening to the VSD1S more despite the VSonics' sibilance so I couldn't in good conscience give the MOE a higher score."

 

I agree with this. It is a bit harsh without an EQ cut there.

Update: Sorry for the long silence from my end. Been busy/lazy, depending on how you want to view me as. So with that in mind, as much as I want to keep my word of doing a "journal" using the SS01, I won't be able to keep that promise. On the other hand, my final write up will be a concise and straight to the point, but rest assured, I will be comparing it with the obvious doppelganger, with something cheaper that it, and something triple its price.

Don't hold your breath though, you'll suffocate waiting... frown.gif

Hmm interesting.

I'm actually selling mine. If you aren't affected by the treble peak/harshness that can sometimes occur, this is a fantastic in-ear. It is also fixable by EQ.

After a lot of trying, I found the following EQ setting the most effective to eradicate the treble peaks and to make them more flat. Maybe its usefull for you guys too, as I absolutely love them now.

I'm disappointed in mine. I got mine through that site that starts with an M and ends with a P. So I doubt that I can return them. I had them for 5 days now, and no matter how much I hope that the sound will improve with burn-in, they simply won't get much better. I had to return my TTPOD T1E a few weeks ago because one side was louder than the other. I wanted an exchange, but ended up with a refund instead. Which was fine at the time as I had anticipated the SS01 to take over where the TTPOD left off. Boy was I mistaken. The mids are more recessed in the SS01, the highs lack the sparkle and presentation of the TTPOD, and the bass is not as tight or as powerful. It's just not as good. Period. And the accessories are lacking. A clip, carrying pouch, and a couple of pairs of tips. That's it. The TTPOD came in a fantastic box, with a carry pouch (crap ones, but still in there) and up to 8 pairs of tips. Plus I liked the cable of the TTPOD way more than the one on the SS01. So there you have it. Totally disappoionted in the performance, and it costs more than the TTPOD. Now I would gladly buy another TTPOD T1E, but I already have the Havi B3 and they're better IMHO. Also, there is the new TTPOD T2. With the Pro in the works. Triple driver. 

 

Anyway, I wish I could return the SS01. They don't sound bad. Just not as good as the other stuff out there. And costs more.
