About Me:

Life is all about listening, playing, and singing music. I love it too much.

Headphone Inventory

Generally I admire warm&thick Westone/Earsonics type of sound signature as opposed to sharp&crispy feeling we may experience through Shure SE846 or AKG K3003 for example.

The preference is purely personal thing and it is quite odd that some people hate S-EM6 or UM 50pro so much as though those are cursed by the evil of "just putting as many drivers as they can without any new technology only to place irrationally high price tag".

Well, I actually like S-EM6 and UM 50pro.

My advice is that if you don't like any IEM, just stay away and calm down :)



Major ones currently in hand...

I mainly use S-EM6 because those match best with my music preference and also perform best in midst of ambient noise while wondering around the city. Despite of their very little wow factor when auditioned, the more I get used to them the more I realize those are capable of handling music like no other. I say MUSIC rather than sound.

SE846 are also good but due to smaller sound stage and scooped up mids they tend to become more fatiguing, especially with certain level of volume which I require to use them at a little noisy places. Yes the scooped up mids I think is same trend as I experienced with SE535, but 846 compared to 535 have much more quantity as well as quality of bass to give improved sound balance. To me at least bass is not heavy at all when listening to R&B (or may be I want more...).

Obviously the main problem with K3003 is that they have less seal thus their performance outside of my home is felt to be like 50% of their full ability.
Also the sound is more V-Shaped I.e. when the volume is turned up to cover the lack of seal, their treble is pushed forward to somewhat disturb comfortable listening of vocal area which I regard is the most important part for my music experience.
