    Can you use any track from any artist to demo equipment?

    Had someone around my house who remarked on my speakers setup, so I switched it on to show them. Now my sort of go to tracks for initial demo of speakers / headphones / whatever would be something like from Céline Dion, or Enya. Warm and rich bass that envelopes the listener with either dynamic...

    Sennheiser IE300 Review & Measurements

    Has anyone tried EQing their Senn IE300s? I was not happy with the sound when I got it, but was generally ok with the price paid and the Sennheiser build quality. So once I got a new DAC, I took a chopping block to the sound. This is what it looks like now lol. Anyone else try something this...

    So just an update, I have swapped my set of Moonlight for a Mahina. Shout out to Elise Audio in the UK for making it happen. At the same time, I have purchased a Qudelix 5k dac/amp. And a set of Comply foams TX500 tips. I am now pretty happy with this set up and do think the Mahina is...

    So, based on your Sony MH755, and the sound suggested by its frequency response graph, Yanyins will not get you what you seek, if all you want is more of the same. Instead, the 3 iems on top of my head that corresponds to what you might want would be Fatfreq Mini / Fatfreq Maestro SE /...

    Just want to point out that the OG Monarch is 2.5x the price of the Canon. Even it is slightly better, it will not be 250% better. Monarch Mk2 is 3x. I have not heard either, but I have messed about EQing a set of Moonlight, and how much bass is enough for you depends solely on your own...

    Comment by 'The-One' on listing 'Black Kinda Lava (retuned to HBB specs) for Sun Copper'

    Are you based on the US? Would you ship to the UK? How did you manage to get a retune? Was the retune done on a new unit from the workshop before it was ever sent out? https://hbb.squig.link/?share=Bad_Guy_Target,7Hz_i88_2,Shuoer_KL_3 The red line is your tune, the pre production target, yes...

    Post in thread 'LG V20 Sound Quality' https://www.head-fi.org/threads/lg-v20-sound-quality.816024/post-13118227 After much searching, it appears someone did measure the output impedance of my LG v20 phone output at 2.3ohms That is more than the 1ohm you specified for the Moonlight. This is...

    So from looking at previous posts, it is said you want the IEM impedance to be at least 8x higher than the output impedance of the DAC / Amp? Therefore looking at 1ohm impedance or less from source. Well, how would I know what is the output impedance if it is not measured as a public...

    Oh I see. Well that's a bummer. If so, the the (2) actually produced model has less bass than the Mahina then between extra bass and extra 2.8khz bite to vocals, I'd actually take the extra bass than vocals as sounding "deficient" is worse then not sounding "extra". So Mahina > actual production...

    **EDIT** I HAVE SINCE TOOK MY OWN ADVICE ABOUT CORRECTLY MATCHING BASS LEVELS BECAUSE MY SUBWOOFER WAS RUNNING 3DB TOO HOT AT 63HZ CROSSOVER. THE BELOW IMPRESSIONS NEED TO BE ADJUSTED FOR LESS EXPECTATIONS OF BASS. Right, I have spent Saturday night at home playing around with EQ-ing the...

    I don't understand how the app works. Auto eq only eqs any iem to the Badguy Target, not from IEM A to B. There is a button for "upload target", but I'm not sure what format it needs to be in, or how I can get it ---- EDIT: I think I have figured it out, you need to delete the reference...

    Well, I currently have a set of V shape tuned iems in the form of a Sennheiser IE300 (bought it in a sale 50% off) and well I'm not a huge fan of that either but for the price it's ok. The issue I have with that one is that the voices sound wrong. Female voices sound "crystalline" due to that...

    Do me a favor, listen to "Call off the search" by Katie Melua on your Mahina and see if it sounds "shouty" to you. If so, it will be the way this particular singer rises to a crescendo and holds a lot of notes peaks at between 900hz and 1200hz, which sort of correlates with the yanyin slight...

    What's the difference between their 100-500 tx series? All same price. Is the tx500 the one that is best with the Moonlight?

    Can anyone recommend some good foam tips for the Moonlight? Thanks
