    Have'nt experienced any with my SD9... or with any IEM (from my short list of owned models).

    Regarding tips, so far, the best match for my ears and SD9 are the Audiosense S400 tips size large. They made me stop tip rolling the SD9 because of comfort and ease of insertion. This is very personal of course. By the way, I'm surprised the SD9 isn't more popular. Of course, the affordable...

    Thanks for the input! I love my Sundara and the prospect of having another pair that spanks it is very... interesting lol. But I'm afraid I have to buy a new amp (THX 789 probably). Topping L30 may not be enough, but I'll try the pairing.

    I do find it puzzling that they use the same DD for all of their IEM range. I guess that they have found one that does what they want. They must know very well how it reacts to crossovers and sound tubes. The DD driver likely isn't a high cost item anyway. I like fast textured bass so I'm happy...

    Yes, I do prefer them for most of what I listen to, and prefer is the key word here. I think they also are technically better, but I am not the best judge for technicalities, so take this with a grain of salt. As for GS Audio saying that they are bass heavy, could it be something about language...

    Quick update on my SD9 after a week listening to them, about 20 hours (?), enough to get used to them and to burn-in my brain hehehe. -My first impressions stand, this is a neutral IEM with some treble (mostly upper treble) spiciness. Not a warm IEM. -The peakiness doesn't bother me anymore as...

    The GD5 looks like a really nice IEM! There is only the small dip at 3K. The graph reminds me of the Sony IER-Z1R.

    That is true, my SD9 has quite a bit of pressure build up, similar to my SA6. They truly seal.

    Are you sure the GD3A GD3B aren't vented at the 2 pin connector? My SD9 have small openings there.

    Pinna gain? Never heard of that!

    I have finally received my SD9 :) Impressions after a few hours are: -Detailed, quite a lot of details. -Fairly bright, neutral signature, good extension on both ends, cymbals do not sound truncated. -Makes my Dunu SA6 sound warm and my Blessing 2 Dusk very bassy (after SD9 brain burn-in). -Can...

    How much are the Aria and/or Starfield on their Chinese weibo?

    Starfield would be interesting. Similar tuning (on graphs at least).

    Audio Lokahi IEM impressions and reviews thread

    The build, fit and finish is perfectly fine IMO, and very good considering how it's made.

    It really depends on your preferences. I prefer a balanced, bright-ish sound with slightly north of flat neutral bass, therefore I ordered the SD9. I listen mostly to instrumental jazz, fusion, latin jazz, old funk, rock and prog. The JVC HA-FDX1 with medium filters has that kind of tuning, with...

    Not on Variations, but with my B2 Dusk (and with other IEMs with a wide bore), I really like the L size A07 tips. Y01 tips fit really well, but they may slightly obstruct 1 or 2 of the nozzles. E01 tips are very similar to Final E tips, but slightly longer. Better suited for IEMs with a narrower...

    Seeing the direction they are taking, I'm not touching Audiosense with a 10 foot pole.

    lol, bought the same yesterday for my SD9. I don't believe in cables, but this one looks cool. It looks like the "graphene" ones from XINHS, KBEAR etc..

    Audio Lokahi IEM impressions and reviews thread

    I haven't heard the Tea, but they should complement each other well, with the Lokahi being the sparkly-er IEM, with pretty strong mid-bass (more V or U shaped?).

    I tried confirming with GS Audio, but didn't get much info. Bass: DD + Sonion 37 series BA (2 BAs??) Mids: Sonion 2389D BA (2 or 4 BAs?) Highs: Knowles 3rd generation BA (2 of 4 BAs?) Maybe I'll be able to tell what's what when I receive my pair.

    It's just my opinion, but I don't think we should worry too much. A ton of IEM have similar nozzle designs and don't have anything to keep stuff out. Dunu SA6 is one that comes to mind. I'd still be careful not to let stuff accumulate with the close proximity of the Knowles filter.

    For my Blessing 2 Dusk, I have settled on JVC Spiral Dots L. Good clarity and comfort. The stiffer tips I usually use aren't comfortable because of the huge nozzles. The Spiral Dots are very soft and have a wide opening. Good match for the B2D. I'm curious to try the Radius Deep Mount tips I...
