I feel the M-Duo's mid range/vocals are a bit lean-sounding and wished for them to be a little warmer. Are the S1 mids warm and full-bodied? That's what I'm looking for. Thanks.
I have 3 days before the deal expires...tic toc...
My real problem with the M-Duo is the cross-over circuit is lousy, I can clearly hear 2 different drivers, with a dip notch at maybe around 2.5 kHz, which is maybe the crossover frequency. So coherency between the 2 drivers is not good on the M-Duo. Narmoo on the other way sounds very coherent, it's sounding like one wide spectrum driver, very good coherency between the 2 drivers. S1 mids is natural, much better than M-Duo. Not warm, not analytical, just plain natural. Not thin, midrange body is good, but not the level of fat or warm. And the bass.... oh man, I never heard better bass at this price category... the bass is very2 good quality and powerful, and very balance with the midrange, never muddied or coloured the mids. S1 is simply, what Singaporean use to say, 'die die must buy' IEM
