    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...

    Which reviewers target frequency response do you favour then? HBB loves his bass and it shows.

    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...

    I will try your suggestion to try and eq the Moonlight to senn ie300. I just need to find a database on Squig that has both the moonlight and IE300 as HBB database does not contain IE300. The Qudelix 5k seems like an intriguing option. And the price is very affordable. I was looking at a Chord...

    Right, well I've got to go to work soon so I don't have time to relisten to the Moonlight on the desktop. But I did spend some time listening to the tracks on my subwoofer + speakers. I really should have taken my own advice about the bass level matching from the Celine Dion track because I...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    What is the output impedance of the v20 in low impedance mode?

    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...

    I am actually now more confused about the Kinda Lava than ever. First of all, it seems to have been a custom edition that has sold out. Then on the Squib Link, it has 2 different curves, I like the curve with the extra bass. However, on Crinacle's database, the measured bass was actually less...

    On the website https://hbb.squig.link/ What is the difference between EJ07, EJ07M, xHBB EJ07M and xHBB EJ07M 2? There are 4 different curves for very similar sounding names. And I'm confused. Which is the one people call "Kinda Lava"? Thanks

    **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...

    What program on the PC would I need to be to do such an EQ? From looking at it, a parametric eq is not enough, there needs to be some sort of function for a curve that sets a starting frequency and a gradient. Would I just need to eyeball the graphs on the HBB database or are there any...

    Has anyone heard both the Moonlight and the Mahina? Essentially I am in the middle of enquiring to either exchange the Moonlight for a Mahina or return the order completely and take a hit on restocking or manually selling it here. I know there's a guy above me who had the same complaint about...

    So you would say the IE600 keeps most or all of the vocals of the Moonlight with extra bass? I mean I sort of already get a guess of what the bass might be like from the IE300, which is OK. I've heard some people say the IE600 is even better than the IE900, how much of that is wishful thinking...

    Thanks, out of interest does the Canon have the same bore diameter as the Moonlight? Apparently the difference between 100-500 is the different sized bore they fit. So if you are using the TX-500 for the Canon and it fits and if the Canon has the same bore diameter as the Moonlight, then the...

    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...

    Your review is hilarious. You should be the next Crinacle maybe :D You should buy a Yanyin Moonlight for $650 and compare that to the U12Ts

    As it happens I am vocal centric. The first thing I'm going to do when I get it is to play a list of familiar tracks from artists such as Céline Dion, Karen Carpenter, Katie Melua, Minnie Riperton, Sade and Lana Del Rey for a spread of female vocal ranges and backing / instruments from 35hz to...

    Neumann NDH 30

    A little off topic, but is the mojo2 as good as the reviews say it is? I've never invested in any significant amount of money into sources before. Always bought the most expensive drivers and cheapest amps.
