D marc0's Journal: My Head-fi Journey - Page 5

post #61 of 562

Nice write-up d marc0! You are the hybrid king!!!!

 

Was the teabag filter subtle to your taste? I love it on my DN1000's, but only find it necessary on certian poorly recorded artists/tracks, so I usually just leave it off. I'm still looking for a more elequent way of applying or removing it. You are right, shallow insertion and wide-bore tips help mitigate it as well, so I might just leave it off and accept the fact that poorly recorded tracks sound harsh. It's not enough that I would trade the beautiful treble of the DN1000's for a darker sound signature to compensate. Any IEM with this much detail is gonna show the track's flaws.

I've found a shallow insertion favorable on my DN1000's. The sound seems much more balanced this way. Deep insertion muffles the bass to much IMO.

CONCLUSION:

As much as I wanted the H-100j to correct the flaws of my beloved H-200, I couldn't really blame it for failing. It is a budget hybrid and we shouldn't expect it to out perform the much pricier and technically advanced T-PEOS H-200.

 

^ Another sweet write-up, you on FYRE meng!!! :beerchug:

 

Diggin' your clean style a lot, might have to swagger jack some of it for my next write-up. hoho :evil:

Yup, great write-up d marc0! Thoroughly enjoyed it (especially since the H200 crushed it's spine lol). I also like how you insert your "Note" and "Please note" info - you're not leaving out a thing! Nice work.

I totally agree with you there. I now really want to buy new earphones...H200 or DN1k?

I tell you, I still love my H200's - and I'm not even a metal-head lol. That being said, it sounds like the DN1K's might be the ones for you. Ultimately though, d marc0 is the man to set you straight :)

Thank you! I only used foam because I find the teabag filter to reduce the upper treble and it is not good for the H-100j because of the treble roll-off. Some IEMs tho are better with the tea bag filter.

"Swagger Jack" - I love how you use eccentric words meng! You're definitely at a much higher level than me :wink_face:.

Thanks for the compliments.

Thanks Wayne! I'm still in the process of figuring out what format works well for me. I'm grateful for everyone's feedback because I believe in constructive criticism. :deadhorse:

I don't really push a certain IEM to someone because I prefer just letting them know what to expect from them. The H200 is a great IEM but it does have its flaws... The DN-1000 is technically better and a great all-rounder IMO. I do have a comparison review if you haven't read it yet:

Read through it for a couple of minutes, and I have to say, I'm really impressed with your writing skill. I'm also pretty jealous. :D

You pretty much nailed the comparison, and now I'm looking forward to buying a new IEM. Still, I need to get an amp before I do any more headphone purchases.

 

Thanks a lot for your review! It's spectacularly written.
