    FlaresPro/FlaresGold by Flare Audio

    Sorry, you're right. I couldn't remember as I sent mine back for the same reason. The offending spikes are in the upper treble - brilliance range. Around 8-9khz if I remember correctly and then there is another one slightly higher but which causes less issue.

    FlaresPro/FlaresGold by Flare Audio

    Unless you are clearly noticing a difference between left and right it's highly unlikely you have driver issues. The chances of both drivers having the same problem is pretty minimal in chance. Have you tried running a frequency sweep and checking for differences between left and right? I think...

    FlaresPro/FlaresGold by Flare Audio

    I think this is also related to miniscule distortions that are introduced by drivers when reproducing sound. If you could get rid of these you are delivering a more authentic representation of the original recording (hence the various approaches in speaker design). Part of the thinking of...

    FlaresPro/FlaresGold by Flare Audio

    The problem with the K10 is they are not great at imaging. It's like sounds are just coming at you and around you; entertaining yes, but the image is just not realistic. Depends what your'e after as the instrument tonality on the K10 is preferable (although the bass is not as good). K10...

    Are we sure that the Flares Pro are an open design? I'm not convinced. I know it has the hole in the back but I'm not sure that is a vent. In all my vented DD iem's when pushing the earpiece in the canal there is never any trapping of air in the canal like there is with my closed BA design...

    FlaresPro/FlaresGold by Flare Audio

    I'm finding that the harshness/artificial edge can 'mostly' be EQ'd out if you're happy using EQ. Some play around the 8-9khz range does it and maybe a little around the 11-12khz. Makes the sound more organic and instruments more natural but retains much of the amazing resolution and air.

    FlaresPro/FlaresGold by Flare Audio

    Received my Flares Pro on Monday and have been using daily since. I'm really enjoying them from a technical standpoint. The separation, imaging, speed, soundstage is very good, even in comparison to my 10 driver customs and they completely smash them in bass tuning and quality. However, where I...

    WTS or WTT - Heir 10.0 Custom - 10 Driver BA CIEM

    Unfortunately I can no longer use fully sealed earphones / CIEM's due to tinnitus issues so I'm looking to sell or trade my 10 driver Heir 10. These are customs and would need reshelling. They are a slightly warm sounding monitor (L-shaped response). Highly resolved and incredibly natural...

    IBasso Audio IT03

    Anyone know of ibasso will repair the IT03 out of warranty? And if so how much have people paid? My left earpiece has just died which is unfortunate as they've been well looked after and already been sent back in once for a channel imbalance issue. I've had them 16 months approx.

    PLUSSOUND AUDIO - Introducing BLUETOOTH CUSTOM CABLES - Available for 2-PIN/CIEMs, MMCX, FitEar, Sennheiser, Audeze, and more

    @B9Scrambler does your Bluetooth battery indicator actually ever show at 100% charged? Mine never shows more than 60% + I'm no way getting anywhere near 10 hours of battery. 8 at a push!

    so, are the UE900 still a good IEM ?

    How much have you seen them for?

    so, are the UE900 still a good IEM ?

    In my opinion for the price they go for, no. There are plenty Chinese options that smash them. I had UE900 for a bit then got the Fischer Amps FA4E XB which had a very similar sound signature but slightly improved in many aspects. Options from FLC, Ibasso, Orivetti, the LZ A4, Flare Audio, Dunu...
