    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    R8 is versatile. Thats its strength. I find it really balanced. Its safest bet regardless of iems you use. I do need to hear M8! As i am also confused on what its like. Bloody canjam is just too far away. Though from what i read, i feel like it would be good with Odin and hit or miss with LX...

    So it seems traillii is simply wider in stage technically and not just some sort of tuning trick. Well it better be at that price😄 On a side note has anyone has a chance to compare odin to Obravo Ra C-Cu. I think they are semi open so should be quite spacious. Unfortunately, Obravo seem to...

    A bit off topic. @gLer. I have seen you have some first impressions on IE900. I have a unit waiting for me to audition in a very quit and suitable environment. And if i do happen to sell my LX, i would like to compare them to iems a/b before i do. Gave you got full review up with comparison...

    One thing EE excels in over other iems is fit. Typical 64 Audio, Sultan, Audeze, A8000 are all hard work to keep secure fit for me. This is quite surprising given the size of Odin, but fit is flawless. Not talking about LX even i was using 6 wire Plusssound x6 cable for commuting and i had never...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Yeh if only i could own both Odin and LX... I was always one iem at the time guy. But this duet is really fantastic. They both got something very interesting to offer. The only reason i did not dive for Odin earlier is that i would have like a bit more bass, coming from LX. But now after...
  6. EE Legend X

    Selling My beloved Legend X to fund Odin. The decision that i might still regret.😣 The units are in excelent condition. No scratches and in good working order. Always kept in a pouch + hardcase when not in use. All accessories are untouched, except for the cable which was plugged in probably...

    Did not hear nemesis. But Atlas is midbass focused. Where as nemesis seems to have even more focus in subbass than LX. And im pretty sure Nemesis should be technically superior as Atlas while definitely not bad, is honestly not a miracle in anything.

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    As i have been posting in last few weeks i have been having issues with Amazon Music app, such as; - Going from online to offline mode, downloaded music would not play. Unless i force stop app or reboot dap. - In online mode, music that was already in the playlists would not play when queued in...

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN EST50!

    Not just cables. I bought sp2000 for my LX which is a brilliant pairing in itself. But man it scaled h40 to another level. Sp2k tuning is sort of U shape. And along with improving it technically, the magic it does to H40 treble is just amazing. I would have never thought that H40 can reproduce...

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Seems like you need something subbass focused low end. Makes it cleaner at least for me. Also good ability separate and layer is a key for bass heavy iems. Dont underestimate source. Synergy is a massive factor to achieving desired sound. I went through 4 daps this year alone. And it makes...

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Good idea. But as far as ergonomics go they were just slightly shorter that two part ones, so dont think its worth loosing customizability over it. That said. They are compatible in between each other. So you actually pull out an idea of just adding variably tuned filters as an extra for...

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Nah. I did not mean ditching filters completely. Its IMRs signature. But double filter does make it quite deep fit and this is an issue to quite a few. So why not try a model or two without them. Its just for variety.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/264516964548 I chuck them in a CA pouch and wrap. Cable around it. Then chuck it in the case linked above. This ensures its not mushed up with stuff my bag and also keeps dust away. You can use case alone as it has valcro strip to customize compartment for iems.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    For OG i used MS. And thats what i ordered for ++ the first time and they did not seal well. So i reordered M and it was fine. In relation to Epros, ++ will sound a bit fuller. Less bright but treble is really nice on ++. In general more balanced, keeping LX character. Fit will be a bit...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Received spiral dots++ yesterday. And i can say im reallu impressed. SD OGs were already good but they were a bit too V shape with lower treble edginess i wished was a bit tamed. And on top they tip of the bore were a bit too stiff for perfect comfort. ++ sorts it all out. Softer more enjoyable...

    HiBy R8 User Impressions

    One thing R8 does fall behind other Daps with is RFI sensitivity. It picks up my phones interference while being not far away on a desk. But again nothing silly if you dont keep phone and a dap in a same pocket. Ouch that must hurt if you actually manage that lol

    HiBy R8 User Impressions

    You are far from only one hearing hiss issues. This has been mentioned in other comparisons too. But mainly with turbo mode on. Its a powerful dap, so does not surprise me one bit. As i mainly use LX i cant comment much as i have no issues with noise. Dx228, dx311, R8 or SP2000

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    Interesting, i found sp2k having more presence in upper mids compared to R8. But then im pairing it with LX so might give different perception. I dound lower mids fuller on R8. Turbo mode does push upper mids on R8 forwards a bit but still not to same level. Might need to pull out R8 and check...

    I did demo Hero and bass of it is not far off from LX. Besides i tip rolled Odin yesterday while demoing and got same effect on same tips while do it on LX. So im sure results will be not far ofc regardless of model. Regardless of iems. I think whirlwind, spiral Dots and Azla earfits are a...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    C145 tame the bass a bit. They also will not have widest stage due to being narrow bore. At the moment my to go tips are some cheapos that come with ISN H40 which i use for sports activities. They actually have widest soundstage surpassing even E-pros, Spiral dots and whirlwinds. What do you...
