    Precog's IEM Reviews & Impressions

    I don't think it is at all? It's just an accepted standard in the audiophile community because "mommy told me I'm special"

    Would you say the same about the Iliad? I know a few people who share your opinion and they tend to go for really minimalistic cables, but nothing in Eletech's lineup is what I'd consider as even close to minimalistic haha

    Precog's IEM Reviews & Impressions

    I don’t disagree with what you’re saying and it does make sense after all, but the way it is in my head is something like: 75% transducer 15% amplifier 5% DAC 3% cable 2% files I am still getting that 98% regardless if I use MP3 or FLAC or DSD or whatever - and my ears tell me I can’t really...

    Precog's IEM Reviews & Impressions

    I never conducted a proper blind test, but when I switched to a new laptop and downloaded Tidal I forgot to change the setting to HiFi/MQA, so I listened on 320 for a month without so much as realising... Ended up downgrading my subscription lol

    Yeah most of my favourite stuff is his B/C tier haha. Of his A tier I really liked the Z1R and the A12t but I can't think of many others I clicked with

    yeah, much like grading video games, grading IEMs is basically grading your own enjoyment which is 100% irrelevant to the enjoyment of everyone else

    RAZ's TOTL review and rambles thread

    Yeah I can imagine it is also quite overwhelming to start researching a hobby with hundreds of options - you don't even know what 95% of the terms mean (I know a guy who had spent over 20k on audio and didn't know what "treble" was) so having a simple ranking that tells you "buy this, don't buy...

    That's even messier haha - I might enjoy listening to rock in a grittier, dirtier way (with boosted lower mids and upper treble), while someone else might go for speed to be able to nitpick every detail There's also too many genres, and of those, I listen to too few to be able to proide a...

    The lower tiers are easy - things that I didn't like at all, or considered that they had some major issues etc etc - if something is a bottom of the barrel, Tier 5 IEM, hearing something even worse won't change that. It's mostly Tier 1 and 2 that are really problematic. Back when I heard the...

    RAZ's TOTL review and rambles thread

    Oh yeah about that - The FuSang is an easy Tier 1 IEM to my ears, but I think I will be abandoning ranking IEMs altogether. I just haven't bothered removing the links and whatnot yet. It's just been too long since I've heard a lot of things, and a lot of new IEMs are what I'd consider directly...

    Yeah +1 for never seen anyone describe the U18t as warm, and 100% never seen the U12t described as thinner or brighter than the U18t

    Initial Impressions post for the new king, the Aeneid I received the Aeneid yesterday, and it was actually a pretty good time to do so, since I had my second jab and had the day off because of the sugar crash lul - there's a chance that the Aeneid makes no difference to the sound at all, and...

    METAL MAGIC RESEARCH (Thoughts and impressions)

    Closest I can provide to a Balmung impression is my lil sister received them in Barcelona and said “they sound sooooo good” I’ll be able to chime in on Friday but I think her description is probably more useful than anything I can add :D

    The slider actually kinda works on the Aeneid even though it's snap-on. I thought it would look way more out of place.. My sister has received mine actually, she will send me some photos tonight

    Now do that with MMR's product range and I will gift you an IEM of choice :D Gae Bolg / Homunculus / Balmung / Thummim go

    METAL MAGIC RESEARCH (Thoughts and impressions)

    The Thummim does that especially when you feed it enough power. I've been postponing selling off a bunch of stuff but as soon as I do it's coming straight back home <3

    METAL MAGIC RESEARCH (Thoughts and impressions)

    I had the A90, but actually found it way too transparent for my tastes. The music felt somewhat too "floaty" and light - I know it's the kind of sound that a lot of the community is after but I personally like a little more body

    Oh right, I'd say sneak into their office and nick an Aeneid but Eric told me they're doing the launch without a single unit of their own in the office :D

    A lot of it is dealers I think - you can always get one from them
