DITA - The Answer (Truth Edition). - Page 44

post #646 of 788

I decided not to use the Dita truth for period of 3 weeks, I was playing around with Ortofon EQ-8 and IM04 and after a while today I decided to give them another go and see if I still like them.


Here is my setup, colorfy C4, Wong Kuan Wae solid core mini-mini, wagnus epsilon S using eneloop XX 9around 40 hours of age. Volume set at 70% on C4 and wagnus at 10 o'clock and I can say this setup is a 10/10. More importantly I can place this right next to ER4S, I got myself a new reference. Wong Kuan Wae

How is the sound of EQ-8?

The most challenging iem to find a perfect syengy for it. Heard distortion with all my amp quickly, it is very pesky and will let you hear bad amp. Only with O2 it sounded fine but only until I had it under 11.

Once all was set it is one incredibly open and wide sounding iem. It had an extended bass but did not had the same impact as dita. Sounded more open than dita, dita has a more organic sense to it.

I see. What is your source (DAP) and which amps do you own? 

 

I am interested in the Truth, hoping to pair well with my DX90. 


Not sure if an amp is necessary?

Anyone tried either of the Dita IEMs with a Violectric V200?

I've asked my friend Music to try the Answer with his V200. He didn't note any difference vs. his ZX1

The DITA's are too sensitive for stuff like that to make a difference, they sound so good straight out of anything that I rarely need to amp them. 

 

When you do amp them you usually get a lightly fuller mid bass, but the rest of the spectrum seems to be unchanged.

Been reading this thread and i'm very interested and might buy a pair (not decided which yet).

 

I'm loving my EX1000, but because of their bad isolation and the fact that you can't wear them outside if there is the slightest amount of wind blowing, i'm looking for something similar but also portable.

 

It seems from reading comments that although not exactly the same sound signature wise the DITA:s are close and i would like them, right? :-)
Please convince me so i have a reason to order :-)

 

I will be pairing them with my HUGO feed of an ipod touch.

 

BTW which of the two versions would be closest to the EX1000?

In regards to using a quality DAC with the Dita, it is more the sound quality and getting the best of the Dita I interested in. For example, in this REVIEW of the Sennheiser IE800, the reviewer notes that to get the best out of the IE800 IEMs, a good amplifier is needed. Although the reviewer was writing about finding portable amps of suitable quality, the same would apply to desktop amps. So, although the Dita can be powered successfully by a portable rig, I reckon the best of what the Dita can offer will be found with a fully realised headphone amp (or DAC/combo).

 

This 'new' breed of IEMs are in a new league of quality and deserve to be tethered to amps of similar stature - the result? A true high end audio setup. Violectric V200? Resonessence Labs Concero HP?

Trying out different tips.

The sound signature changes overtime.

My first choice was the reference tips, now i have many hours on them i am finding
The large bore tips to be quite good.

High presentation

Mid : This The strong Point from DITA truth Gold or black , The mid is
Very sweet and forward With excellent pronounce .

Bass : Out the box the bass presentation is not like The DITA truth black ,
The DITA Gold has very Good in detail but less impact and clarity
Compare to The DITA black With 500 Hours Burn in.

Separation : out the box is very Good , but the DITA black has better music
Separation .

Soundstage : With balance cable has wider and better Depth , it has more
3 D presentation .

Hey rudi0504,

 

Thanks for posting. I am loving the Dita Truth out of the AK240 in SE mode. Stuff like Dexter Gordon's "Go" in Hi Rez sounds wonderful. Probably the best sounds i have heard so far from this combination have been Marc Moulin's "Top Secret" Album. There is loads of ambience and depth to the stage and such wonderful clarity. It is a great recording anyway but this combo really helps it shine. 

 

I am wondering now if it is worth going balanced, First though a Hugo ....maybe.
