    PMV PP Planar Magic

    Interesting, the PMV PP I received seems to be less bassy than I've seen from some other measurements. Actually pretty close to diffuse-field neutral and the JVC FDX1 with reference filters. Sounds pretty impressive right out of the box with Azla Xelastec eartips. No big urge to mod ATM. (light...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Here are DF-compensated measurements of Rose Maria II, with different levels of seal on my miniDSP Ears coupler. Take them with a grain of salt, because the coupler's artificial ear is only a crude replica of a human ear. I pretty much agree with @ClieOS on sound signature and stage. It's...

    JVC HA-FW01 - The New Top End Wood Driver IEM (2017)

    It's the same driver, with the same specs: https://www.jvc.com.hk/en/products/ha-fw1800-s322 https://www.jvc.com.hk/en/products/ha-fw10000-s312 IMO this driver is a definite upgrade over the ones used in the FX850 and FW01. However, the FW1500/1800 tuning is rather v-shaped and more similar...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    Might not necessarily be the bass driver. This kind of FR could also be caused by a leak. Check the shell and nozzle for potential gaps / cracks.

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    Well, I have to mention that I use a subtle damping mod to attenuate the high mids on the Luna: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/dunu-luna-impressions-and-discussion.923958/page-30#post-15654794 I have no complaints whatsoever about bass on the Luna. Biggest difference to me is soundstage, the...

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    I have both and to me, the Dunu Luna is most suitable as a successor to the EX1000. (DF-compensated; red = EX1000, blue = Luna)

    Europe Deals Thread

    No, that's because the deal is limited to Spanish customers only. When you log in, Amazon evaluates your standard shipping address and only shows you the deals available for your address.
