    The KGHV GG Stax Amp

    yes, at least to my ears and with my gears. EL34 are slightly more detailed, 6CA7 are more full-bodied.

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM ******NEW Firmware 2.00 Android 11******

    @Paul - iBasso and anyone in the knows... I need to eq one of my IEM (EE EVO, really unlistenable w/o heavy eq), but I have found no way to apply a pre-gain with the Mango player inthe DX300 (fw 1.06.362), and there are sometimes very audible distorsions that disappears when I de-check the...

    time for an updated rank 1. UM Mentor Multiverse (love everything about these) 2. UM Indigo/MEST MKII (very good all-rounder) 3. QDC V14 (very nice details w/o being too analytical) 4. EE EVO (heavily eq'ed, only for EDM) 5. TA Oracle (love the timbre)

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Since when I changed the stock FinalE tips with the Spinfit CP145 the EVO are growing on me in a really addictive way. With FinalE I found the EVO to be very good for EDM, but couldn't use them with basically anything else... too much basses (and somewhat not so much textured/defined), too...

    well. it depends on the distance of the objects you see in the image. for those objects that are 4.6B LY away, then yes. but there could be some objects closer or farther and in those cases you are seeing (in the same image) what they looked like less than / more than 4.6B Y ... amazing uh...

    ThieAudio Signature Series Tribrid IEMs

    if you mean "shouty" referred to upper-mids / lower-treble , then I can say that Oracle is definitely not shouty. unfortunately never listened to Excalibur. Tea are very good for the price, also definitely not shouty at all. If you can fund the MEST MKII, that could be your end-game, depending...

    MEST2 are the most tips-sensitive IEM I know... can change from "meh..." to "WOW!" depending on the tips... for example, for my ears and my liking, spinfit (tried almost everything from cp100 to cp500) are "meh..." while Azla sedna light short are "WOW!" that's for sure a big disadvantage if you...

    seems so... but form what I see from the latest replies, it seems hate >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> love :worried: a pity, a used U18S is more or less (more less than more) same $$ as a used U12T

    umh... ok, maybe I've used a wrong word, sorry I'm not native english... let me put it this way: if could buy at the same price a U18S or a U12T, what would you choose?

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    Hi everyone, I'm new here, couple of weeks ago I've listened (briefly) a U18S and I've found them let's say "interesting". I've read some pages in this thread but admittedly not the all 1371 :astonished: and I've found very few feedbacks/comments on the U18S. Can I ask why so little love for...

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

    depends on what you looking for... if you want a very balanced sound, the Xinhs graphene 8 core is a good all-rounder. I use it with my MEST2 and I'm very happy. more airy than the stock, with a tighter bass that extend down very well. if instead you looking for a more crispy, more detailed...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    great to hear you are liking them so much :relaxed: when you have some more listening time on them, would love to read your feedback on detail level (I'm crazy for high detailed but not fatiguing IEM) and treble quality... and also of course on basses reproduction (speed/quantity) :pray:
