    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    Yeah there was just a plastic washer that got loose in there, not sure what from but it had no affect on the build and ofc the rattling stopped.

    It was easy to reassemble, I forgot about that there is a dust protector on top of the back of the driver as well.

    [FS] OG CFA Solaris + BTR5 Combo [SOLD]

    Bought these from Bloom Audio late February 2020. Audible driver flex upon insertion if that matters to you. Weird banding in the finish on the left IEM from manufacturing only visible under certain lighting and angles. First owner, non-smoker. I have a pet turtle though. Includes the leather...

    I prefer the lights over regulars. A bit more comfortable for me.

    I mean -3 dB haha, but to be honest, I think I need to be honest with myself and call me for who I am, a basshead.

    When you EQ the 20-250hz range by 3 dB, it becomes a whole different beast. Or a tamed beast rather. Now I feel like I have two iems haha.

    I you like a slightly more Bassier set, I'd recommend the L3. It's slightly over $100. Others to consider are: Moondrop Starfield. Blon03 Tin T2 Tin T4

    Can IEMs be as good as over-ear headphones?

    I think they have different types of sound. Can't really describe the difference in sound but IEMs have comfort and portability beaten on headphones in my opinion. IEMs rarely go over 20g while headphones easily go for hundreds of grams, won't make you head feel hot and give you a nice hair...

    Alright, time for my write up on the L9 vs L3 (Day 1): About me: I like bass guitar... a lot, not a treble head but I like my cymbals to be a little hot with splash and shimmer. Typically listen to Female vocals. While these IEMs share the same series name, they can't be any more different. L3...

    First impression notes from a short a/b: About me: Love the sound of the bass guitar, I need that treble energy to make things sound entertaining for me. Typically listen to female vocalists. + There's a lot of treble energy such as fret-buzz, string plucking, and most notably cymbals that are...
