    Audeze LCD-MX4

    Interesting review. I was interested in the LCD-4X because Audeze has been claiming them to be the light-weight version of LCD-X designed for long mixing sessions for engineers; but according to your review, they are anything but accurate. I stopped using my LCD-X since MrSpeakers Ether came...

    Noble Audio - Introducing KATANA

    But if you really dislike harshness, to me, Westone W60's highs are smooth as silk, with very deep low extensions.

    Noble Audio - Introducing KATANA

    Yes the SE846 can be a bit harsh, the Encore is like an improved SE846, whereas the Katana is crisp and clear. You really need to demo them before purchasing.

    Noble Audio - Introducing KATANA

    They are expensive but they are in a way quite perfect as one can adjust them to whatever sound signature one desires. To me, the Katana has crisp punchy bass, but not deep and thumping like the SE846 if you know what I mean. BTW, which filters did you use on your SE846? Have you tried out all...

    Noble Audio - Introducing KATANA

    I used to have a pair of the old black colored K10U, they have very similar sound signature to my Encore but I was told the newer aluminum ones (K10U) have more (or too much bass. I use mine with balanced cable with my AK240, I think they do work very well together. But recently I took out my...

    Noble Audio - Introducing KATANA

    If you’re looking for deep thumping bass, you should totally forget the Katana and look into Encore instead. Katana really lacks deep low bass. I’m not a bass head at all but I look for IEMs with accurate and balanced sound signature, Katana might sound detailed and crystal clear but it lacks...

    Audeze LCD-MX4

    I was a huge Audeze fan too, been so since they first released the LCD-2 and owned all their products up till they released the god awful EL-8. I got the iSine 20 because there were no demoing available, maybe I wouldn’t have bought them if there were. Still, since I have the iPhone X now with...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    The Pro series is marketed as IEMs for professionals, professionals need proper specs, one cannot market a mic as a general purpose mic when it's specifily designed for recording bass and kick drum. Like how the Pro 50 are desigbeed for, bassist and drummers, as confirmed by the Westone rep...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    People like me at least. I used to be able to just trust Westone products to give me a decent balanced sound signature, especially the UM or Pro series, the Pro 50 totally changed my view about Westone, I would have gotten the W80 without even a second though after demoing them but now I find...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    I think they sure let a lot of people down, especially profession musicians or engineers. i.e. Shure specifically marketed SM58 as a vocal mic and Beta 52A as a mic for kick drum or bass cabinet, anyone can use them for other instruments etc if they want to, but at least we know what they are...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    That's great! It certainly explains why I hated the Pro 50 so much. If that's the case, why didn't Westone advertise the Pro 50 as sepecifically designed for bass players and drummers? I would have stayed clear of them if I knew.

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    If you think that we all hear sound from IEMs differently, so what is the point of describing them when you know for sure most people or everyone else will hear it differently as you do? It will actually be very misleading. And as I mentioned before, which you didn't acknowledge, even big fans...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    You said you work in music production yourself, so you must know that the UM Pro 50 are neither balanced, neutral nor anywhere near to flat sounding, so why would you make judgement of other IEMs against the UM Pro 50? To me it's a bit like making comparisons of color monitors using a monitor...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    I can understand Westone want to make a range of different models for different people, but why make the UM Pro 50 so different sounding. I mean the W60 is quite different sounding to the UM series but at least it's still quite a generally balanced sound signature, whereas the UM Pro 50 are more...
