    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    Apologies, I agree with you. Really I meant cheap relative to expensive or absurdly expensive. I also don’t believe you need to pay a lot especially now more than ever for good performance. You can have a great setup for a few hundred dollars.

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    This is completely beside the point I’m making and also relative. A group of engineers working on said project for a number years shouldn’t be rewarded for their work? Some companies don’t break even especially when starting off and boutique companies very often make a loss. I’m not pro spending...

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    I find it absolutely astonishing we’re on an audiophile enthusiasts forum and people on here can’t hear the difference between cheap and high quality DAC’s, amplifiers and headphones costing a few hundred dollars and more. It’s mind boggling. Go paint your house red and call it green... These...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    The blue filter foams sit close to the metal nozzle tip so not sure why it would need cleaning unless you’ve removed the foams.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    There’s a roll off for sure but that makes them more musical than analytical - although timbre and imaging is still first class. I think they make great stage monitors too. You can turn them up without encountering piercing highs. I have other iems that are very detailed in the highs but can’t...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I would of agreed with you once upon time but I think newer generation iems have pulled away in terms of soundstage by a large margin. Perhaps they have not equalled all the things the 846 does really well... but soundstage is certainly not all that holographic on the 846 although it images...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    The 846 is bass and mid forward and as soon as you change it and give it detailed sparkly highs it stops being what it is. The focus will no longer be on the bass and mids.

    Audeze LCD-4

    They both make reference to mids and upper mids. On an objective level - Audeze sent me a graph showing the difference between the old pads and the new ones. The model before would be a straight line, so the graph is of the NEW pd relative to the old one. You can clearly see it affects the mids.

    So two opposing views regarding the mids. One thinks they’re untouched and the other thinks they’re the thing that changes most. Cool.

    Unique Melody MEXT Announcement and Impression Thread

    Fit and tips is another consideration. The MEXT is on the larger and bulky side relative to other iems. I have no issues with fit however. I’m still trying to figure out if they’re meant to be worn with a deep or shallow fit insertion. Deep insertion covers the forward facing vents - tiny holes...

    Unique Melody MEXT Announcement and Impression Thread

    I might be a bit harsh with my evaluation and if you’re used to Beyerdynamic it might suit you just fine however for the money I expected the MEXT to be more refined. I understand this is supposed to be a fun sounding iem but the upper highs are reminiscent of an old generation BA type of sound...

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    I mentioned this a couple posts ago. Try a shallow fit. It should still fill the entirety of the opening of your ear canal but only as far as it covers it. I don’t think the Z5 sounds good with a deep fit otherwise I agree with your sound observations. Try shallow and give it a chance.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the tips. I think 2.5mm needs to be phased out of audio. There’s really no reason to use it when there’s 4.4mm pentacon option. So many cases of people snapping their 2.5 plugs.

    Unique Melody MEXT Announcement and Impression Thread

    The 846 is the opposite of thin. It is a warm / dark iem. The treble and mid range is smooth, detailed. The mid range is even forward in the mix and sits ahead of the treble. The MEXT upper treble is too hot and pronounced. Listen to some house or drum bass using the MEXT and tell me how you...

    Unique Melody Bone Conduction Family (MEST&MEXT and their siblings) Announcement and Impression Thread.

    I’m not sure the MEXT works with deep insertion. This is what I was saying... doing so covers the forward facing vents which I think are there to relieve pressure. It almost certainly affects the way the earphone attack / decays. It probably affects the soundstage the way open backs do too. So I...

    Ok I’ll report back after I’m deaf and no longer irritated by the upper treble response. For all you MEXT owners I dare any of you to put on some drum and bass or house music and tell me it’s buttery smooth up top.

    Unique Melody Bone Conduction Family (MEST&MEXT and their siblings) Announcement and Impression Thread.

    I have an important question regarding the small vents on the MEXT. I’m not talking about the silver vent on the side face plate but the small hole which sits facing forward. With a deep fit I find these little holes easily get covered by a part of the ear. So my question is does it matter if...

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    I’ve had my hands on the Unique Melody MEXT for a couple weeks. Just wanted to draw similarities with the Z5. They both have a similar presentation. Impactful and wide soundstage. There is a holographic presentation on the MEXT similar to the Z5. Although the MEXT is more detailed as you would...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    The coloured versions of the 846 I imagine would last aesthetically a bit longer. Are the coloured version a single piece shell or still two like the transparent version? I had to buy a new Shure cable every few months from experience. The metal hooks eventually always snap. I found it...

    Unique Melody MEXT Announcement and Impression Thread

    I’ll reformulate my thoughts regarding the treble. I do still find the presentation aggressive on the MEXT. Reason being the treble to my ears is much louder than the mids. I’m always pushing the volume up to get more of the mids but inevitably because they’re recessed all I’m doing is pushing...

    Audeze LCD-4

    I’ve nearly come to the decision to sell my LCD4. I like listening to my headphones with EQ but however much I try I can’t get the LCD4 to sound right. They’re simultaneously forward in the midrange around 1k, sucked out and warm sounding around 3k-4.5k and they have waaaay to much energy...

    Unique Melody MEXT Announcement and Impression Thread

    Just receive my MEXT. Everyone I’ve heard talk about the MEXT speak of a smooth or even at time recessed treble but I’m hearing an aggressive peak somewhere which is annoying. Perhaps this will settle with burn in but I’m sort of astonished nobody has mentioned this at least from the reviews...
