You guys please share some impressions after the meet.
There may be other aspects that one prefers about other IEMs like I did in a jh13 vs 1p2 compare but soundstage size won't be one of them. The 1p2 plays to a large scale and I'm sure the ref 1 does as well. If that's high in your order of importance, it would be difficult to not love these IEMs. I think jha units are more about placement and specificity than scale. They scale well for an IEM but it's not what they're aiming at. K10 10 has a large soundstage as well but I think is a heir (jk) less focused than JHA. To it's advantage, it's very well voiced. Haven't heard the Ref1 but if it's a better voiced 1p2 with tighter bass, it has to be a true to it's namesake reference product.
Well I guess if directly going from Ref1 to 1p2 (or anything else for that matter), one may have that (probably misguided) "where is my bass!" feeling LOL.... Ref1 bass is just really really good
hahaha damn..I think the 1plus2 (with the Uber) has the best natural bass ive ever heard on an IEM, great kick, great control and never overbearing...
That's why I'm holding on to my 1Plus2's until I get to hear the Ref 1's side by side with them. Everything I've read about the Ref 1's suggest they should suit me even more than the 1Plus2's but the 1Plus2's are easily the best IEM I've ever heard.
I think its quite clear now the Ref 1 is not an actual upgrade to the 1plus2 but actually another series tuned to a different signature. Hence I will never sell the 1plus2, unless Gavin makes a 1plus2MK2 (2plus4)?
Well, in the wide range of IEMs sig I would say what you have are all towards the "MOAR BASS" end of the spectrum and not surprising 1p2 is the bass light one....
hhaha..the SD3 had the Biggest Bass Ive ever heard in an IEM...Sooo big my nose was itching all the time lol..
Enjoy the 1plus2 bass more...too me its just 'NIIIIIIICE'
