    Sennheiser IE300 Review & Measurements

    The Final E tips provide a fairly cohesive sound for the Sennheisers, but there's definitely a sense of veil, warmth and the stage is very congested. It not that that veil is necessarily a bad thing. If you're a fan of Audeze's classic sound, it might be right up your alley. I still think the...

    Haha, no worries, that wasn’t a serious question, just a bunch of shwaggy weed puns. Grado’s marketing department started it! Though, I will say, you piqued my interest now.

    To be perfectly blunt, I find some of these claims rather doobious. How are the highs, really? Do they seriously smoke the competition? What do you say, kind bud?

    Pre-Fazor is the way to go, if you want sweet low end. If you can get em, grab em. Also, yes, planars are generally easier to EQ than dynamics.

    First off, great band and song choice! Those guys are insane. Secondly, I also have the AR-M2 and will provide an additional tip. I found it provides really phenomenal tone and power for IEMs, but also found it to be a bit on the loud side in terms of background noise and lacked a lot of...

    Yep. Still listen to the FH7 almost every day - it's my go-to earphone for the gym.

    Complementary, for sure. I see the Empyrean as very warm and smooth overall, whereas the Fostex is more v-shaped and geared for excitement. The Fostex is more "rock out" where the Meze is more "chill out".

    Shouldn’t a “step-up model” be in the same family of sound? Those headphones have very little in common, sonically speaking.

    I think there is some subjectivity for sure, but one major thing with this thread is the diversity of sub genres within metal. People would agree more frequently if we were all judging on the same criteria. Unfortunately, each opinion is assembled via a different sample group of experiences, and...

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Gold (X)

    It could be. It's a sliding scale. It's observably better than the LP, but they are clearly cut from the same sonic cloth, so if you liked the LP overall and it was just ever so slightly short in those areas, you might be into it. If you're expecting something completely different, it's...

    I didn't notice a big difference, but I didn't do an extensive comparison either. I know the measurements are a bit better via balanced and that is really how it is designed to be used.
